IBM researchers have made a major breakthrough in an entirely new form of electronic device, one that Apple--without spending a dime on the research behind it--might use in future decades to create an iPad that would make today’s model look like young Abe Lincoln’s homework shovel.
Warping classic Arthurian legend into a more twisted tale of demons and deception proves a silly but sufficient foundation for high-gloss hack-and-slash adventure in Wild Blood. Gameloft's latest Unreal Engine 3 powered beauty pits you as a burly Sir Lancelot, who must carve his way through unholy hordes to stop a crazed King Arthur that has unleashed hell upon his kingdom in a fit of jealous rage.

But despite the incredibly familiar mechanics driving Marvel's new Avengers Initiative, there's no denying the satisfying crunch of a Hulk fist smacking a Skrull. Sure, it's a bit of a knockoff, but the best examples of imitation lead to great new ideas.
