Gaming becomes even more exciting when multiplayer is introduced because of how fierce competition becomes. Competing against a friend or complete stranger is so fun because of the pursuit of victory. Who wants to lose? No one. For World of Warriors, a new content update pushes the game into ‘player vs. player’ territory. The role-playing game that has hosted nearly two hundred million battles is expanding to battles between players around the world.
Roaming the world are seven million people that play Ingress, an augmented reality multiplayer game developed by Niantic Labs. The game, who’s developer was birthed by Google, directs players to go to locations and control portals on behalf of its two factions. Now, the quietly popular game is heading to a new medium: television.
Nothing can stop the Star Wars franchise at this point. From television to apparel to movies and video games, George Lucas’ beloved child can be seen around the world. Star Wars Rebels is an ongoing television series airing on Disney XD. To supplement the television series, Disney has released a mobile game titled Star Wars Rebels: Recon. This action-platformer tasks players with fighting against (suprise!) the Empire.

A tip can also be left for those who run the fundraiser.

If you haven’t yet decided which streaming box to buy Amazon has just made that choice a little more difficult for you with the news that the Fire Stick is now available for pre-order in the UK with a shipping date of April 15th. As if the choice wasn’t difficult enough with the Nexus Player having recently been made available to pre-order in the UK.
While Google’s Nexus Player has been available in the states for a while now, those of us across the pond have waited patiently to get our grubby little hands on one. Finally, it appears that our wait is about to end thanks to Amazon(UK).
Amazon will reportedly kick off a new program for their App Store soon, called Unlocked. The Unlocked program essentially takes paid apps and games, and ones with in-app purchases, and makes them completely free. Free to download, free to buy things in-game, and free to unlock extra features without spending a dime.
An internal presentation showcasing some of the functionality was leaked, showing off how users can sort out to only see Unlocked apps, and how it’ll look when users buy apps or make in-app purchases. This will all have to be done on Amazon’s own App Store, of course, but getting that installed isn’t too tough, even if Google yanked it from the Play Store.
Although OnePlus is best known for their incredibly cheap smartphone, the OnePlus One, they still see themselves as a technology company, not just a phone manufacturer. With that in mind, the company has released a few teaser images about an upcoming device that’s not a smartphone, not a tablet, and not a smartwatch. OnePlus is calling it a “game changer,” though, and you can see where they’re going with that in the three pictures that were released.
The three images say “Start a new game,” “For the fun of it,” and “You’re in control.” Any guesses on how those things may tie into a game changing device? Yep, my money is on OnePlus releasing a game controller.
It almost seems like once a week, Amazon is hosting some sort of app sale. The fact that the Amazon App Store is now 4 years old seems like another good reason to offer a bunch of apps for Free. They have 34 apps marked down today (33 plus their normal Free app of the day) for a savings of $105. Some notables include Friday Night At Freddy’s 2, Cross DJ Pro, and Easy Tether.
If you don’t mind using the Amazon App Store, then hit the break for the complete list and link to get your download on.
Remember when Modern Combat 5: Blackout was released last year July, Gameloft promised there would be no In-App-Purchases (IAP’s) because it would be a one-off payment upfront? Then they hedged a little by introducing optional IAP’s a few months later. Well, that promise has been well and truly shattered by the news that the First-Person-Shooter (FPS)is turning into a Freemium game thanks to the update that is due to go live any minute. And we all know what that means tight? More details after the break.
