We’ve got a couple of big-name releases leading this week’s roundup, including an iPad version of Pokémon Trading Card Game Online, plus the touch debut of Mac tactical role-playing favorite The Banner Saga. Adult Swim’s free-to-play Adventure Xpress also looks like fun, and if you’re a big fan of aging pro wrestlers, then Crazy Taxi City Rush has something for you this week (no, really, brother).
It can be difficult to pick out the cream of the crop amidst the barrage of new iPhone and iPad games, but we’ve got you covered with our weekly look at the most notable new releases. Phoenix Wright brings legal drama back in Dual Destinies, while Pako’s police chases and Bik’s alien adventuring are both pretty intriguing. Give these a good look and then check back next week for more.
The whole tech world is still buzzing about the search for Microsoft's next CEO finally wrapping up Tuesday, but as Satya Nadella gets comfortable in his new position, he'll certainly have some real problems to contend with, not the least of which is finding a way to make users embrace Windows 8 as he lives in the long shadows of Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer.

The WWE has always looked warily at the past. They might celebrate wrestling's history now that they own almost every scrap of worthwhile wrestling footage ever shot in America, but they'll still ignore certain wrestlers or events that don't fit the story they're trying to tell, and still act like anything that takes place in a non-WWE ring simply doesn't happen. So it's surprising that the WWE of today would release a nostalgic remake of the 1991 arcade smash WWF WrestleFest. It's not surprising, however, that the new game owes almost nothing beyond the name to the original.
