Holy Epic iOS game!

OK, so this Infinity Blade game for iOS looks kind of cool. I won't go spooging all over it like other media outlets, cause I have yet to actually play the thing, but judging from just the trailer I'd be lying if I said I wasn't excited.

Overall I think there's one big thing that stands out in the gameplay footage and that's the swipe attacking. Developers are running to recreate their favorite style of game on iOS devices using virtual keypads and buttons, but it doesn't really work. I don't know if I believe touch screen gaming will be the future, but I certainly think that touch screen games need a whole new approach if they are to properly entertain their audience. Looks like Epic is paying attention.

Additionally, I'm feeling like this might actually be a "hard core" game. Meaning that it's not just the next Angry Birds casual sensation destined to taken the mobile market by the short hairs. We all know that mobile gaming is going to be a driving factor when it comes to your next phone choice, but what we don't know is if we'll be replacing our Xboxes with iPads.

What I do know is that trailers like this make my blackened ninja heart beat two to three times per hour!
