When it comes to special occasions or events, we’ve come to expect Google offering something a little different in the form of its Doodles, and today (tomorrow as well, presumably), the search giant is all about love, in celebration of Valentine’s Day tomorrow. This latest Doodle brings us the Pangolin game with two star-crossed lovers that are oceans apart with one of the pangolins traveling the world learning how to express its love in a variety of ways to prepare for the first date.
It’s time to summon your heroes and save the Kingdom of Askr! Nintendo has released their second game on the Android platform, Fire Emblem: Heroes, and it is now starting to rollout on the Google Play Store.
Join us after the break for more.
Nintendo has announced a new Fire Emblem game set to come to mobile devices later this year, marking the second big franchise that they’ve brought to the mobile space after Super Mario Run. The new game, called Fire Emblem Heroes, will launch on February 2nd on the Play Store.
There are plenty of fantastic mobile games available on Google Play, but if you’re used to a bigger console with an actual controller, some of those games can feel half-baked when you’re forced to use a touchscreen. The good news is that Android natively supports connecting to a wireless controller to give you a better console-like experience, and the even better news is that we have a hefty discount on a controller to get you started.
When Super Mario Run launched, it boomed and broke records for total number of downloads, even without Android’s help. But, like pretty much all hit mobile games and apps, it had to take a nosedive off the charts eventually. Unfortunately for Nintendo, though, it looks like that’s happening sooner rather than later.
It’s the day after Christmas and you’ve probably got some Google Play credit burning a hole in your (Google) wallet. Why not use some of it on some heavily discounted Telltale games?
Atari released a “new” game today that has an Android version available, but older PC gamers may recognize it as being a classic game. The new title is RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic and is based on the original RollerCoaster Tycoon and RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 titles for PCs. The game brings a similar visual experience and gameplay from the classic titles to the mobile platform.
It’s only been out for four days, but Super Mario Run is breaking records despite being available on just one platform.
Word recently surfaced indicating NVIDIA was planning to launch a new SHIELD Android TV device at CES 2017. Other than the news that NVIDIA was planning to release a refreshed, updated version of the device, not much else was known about what NVIDIA may have planned. Some new images that surfaced showing the 2017 update to the SHIELD do not do much to help us figure out where NVIDIA might be headed in the Android TV market.
During the holidays, it’s a great time to sit down and play a game while it’s too cold out to do anything outdoors. NVIDIA is hosting a Black Friday this week where you can pick up titles like Doom 3 and Half-Life on the cheap. Both GeForce NOW and Android games are part of what the company calls its “biggest sale of the year.”
Hit the break for the list of games discounted by NVIDIA for Black Friday.
At this point, there isn’t too much about the OnePlus 3T that hasn’t been revealed over the past few weeks. It’s known that the OnePlus 3T is an updated version of the original OnePlus 3 (reviewed here), and will almost certainly be unveiled later today at 1PM, as alluded to by OnePlus itself. This gives us a while to wait still but the handset maker has thought of this and has placed a nifty little flying game on the OnePlus 3T’s product page.
Pokemon Go, like any other popular mobile game, started off strong then slowly waned in popularity. It’s still doing well, but Niantic is going to have to put in some extra work to give the game legs now that the initial burst has worn off.
Earlier this year Sony launched a new subsidiary to start work on transitioning some of their biggest titles from their console lineup to mobile devices. The subsidiary, ForwardWorks, has committed to bringing at least five titles from the Sony portfolio of games to both the iOS and Android platforms according to an announcement from Sony today. The titles will be released no later than March 2018 if ForwardWorks sticks to their plans.
Pokémon Go may have just launched in July, to much success, but Niantic’s leadership team is already looking ahead to how they can add to the title to keep players and fans engaged. In a new interview, Niantic CEO John Hanke discussed some of the ideas, including some concepts the team may bring over from their Ingress title.
