What's better than free running in a big city, jumping rooftop to rooftop, trying to stop a threat in a futuristic "perfect" world. Ok maybe skydiving, but EA's free running heroine Faith Connors is free to download on the iOS systems. iPad, iPhone/iTouch applications are different from one another so make sure you download on both if you want to play on a larger screen

A free iOS app is available for your Xbox-loving self to grab in the iTunes market. There may not be as much under the hood as the Windows 7-phone counterpart--clearly because Apple is not a product of Microsoft and they won't try nearly as hard on a competition's app--but it still is better than using one of those non-official apps. Read more inside for what the app will be able to do!

EA and 38 Studios' Kingdoms of Amalur has announced some pre-order bonuses, and let's just say they look very appealing. The three packs will offer some type of equipment to benefit game play whether it be adventurous, offensively, or defensively. Each pack will be allotted to a specific vendor for sale, those who have yet been named.

The very first time I laid my eyes on Final Fantasy Tactics was way back in the day for the original Playstation or PSOne, and now finally being able to see it again on the iOS I get a huge sense of nostalgia. The renewed Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions has got a facelift and some added functionality this time around. Players will be able to pinch and zoom, rotate the map for a new angle, loading times a much faster, and some cut scenes can be skipped. The portable FF: Tactics is about a 500mb download priced at $15.99 and is currently out for the iOS systems and will be out for iPad later on this month

According to NPD the US has spent about $5.9 billion, with a big fat B, on video games in the first quarter of 2011. The $5.9 billion compared to last years 2010 Q1 figures was actually a 1.5% increase in sales. Of course NPD took in account of gaming accessories, PC games, pre-owned games, online games, social sites, and game rentals. With the vast majority of entertainment being streamlined to consumers needs and wants, video games are in the express lane. Games being available from Redbox, Onlive, and even Gamefly for rentals, and for Steam, Direct 2 Drive, or XLBA and PSN for direct download means that games can be in gamer's hands with a touch of a few buttons.
