Dungeon Defenders gets TF2 cameos and the Portal gun... if you pre-order

Owen Hill at

Let's be honest, Dungeon Defenders does not look like an iPhone port. We mean that in the nicest possible way. But the multiplayer tower defence game was originally on iPhone. And the PC conversion will let you play with iPhone users when it gets released next week. Weird eh?

Pre-order Dungeon Defenders and, as is tradition these days, you'll get a bunch of Valve goodies in-game including The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device for the Huntress hero class and four Team Fortress 2 familiars. We're not familiar with how familiars work yet, but their roles sound very familiar...


Try out World of Warcraft's Auction House and Remote Chat for free

World of Warcraft players with smartphones can now test out the World of Warcraft Remote's guild chat functionality for one week without charge. Residents of Azeroth/Outland have been able to trial the Auction House tools for a few weeks, but Blizzard have only just added remote chatting to the deal.

You'll get the tools for free until May 10, so it's worth signing up asap if you want to see what the fuss is about. You'll can bid on and post auctions from anywhere in the world (reception-allowing).

iPhone or iPod touch users should download the World of Warcraft Mobile Armory, whereas those of you with Android phones should get the World of Warcraft Remote App. It usually costs £2.49/$2.99 per month for the services.

In a comforting touch, Blizzard have already boosted loyal existing subscriber's accounts by one week.
