Sad news this week for techies, as the man behind the iMovement for Apple passed away. That’s right, Steve Jobs is no longer among the living, but his legacy will live on, including the announcement of the new iPhone 4S along with the Epic Games’ iPhone exclusive, Infinity Blade 2. Speaking of Epic Games, the Unreal Engine 3 is now supported within the Flash Player 11 design environment and even runs Unreal Tournament 3 at 60fp. Fascinating to say the least. Activision also announced that Transformers: Fall of Cybertron will be released in 2012 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. These stories and more in this October 8th, 2011 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
