Humble Mobile Bundle 3 went live today bringing a total of six games, two of them being new to Android. The setup is the same as past bundles, which means you can pay what you want for a total of 4 games and if you pay above the overall average, you get an additional 2 games. One of the new games, Swordigo, is part of the pay what you want, and the second title, Ridiculous Fishing, is one of the bonus games for paying over the average.
As always, you can choose how you want your purchase divided. You can go with the developers and/or two charities: Child’s Play Charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation. Of course, you can make a tip to Humble Bundle to show your appreciation. And don’t forget, they will probably add a title or two next week that your will also get if you pay more than the average. At the time of this post, the average is $4.82, so anything more than that will get you the 6 titles, plus whatever they add next week. Not a bad deal at all.
Hit the break for the full list of games and a video showing you a quick look at them.
The original OUYA Android-powered gaming console only offered up 8GB of internal storage. That’s a bit of a problem considering most games these days are getting to be more and more data-filled.
Thankfully, the folks over at OUYA have a solution. A new white version of its console was just released, and will offer up 16GB of storage.
You can buy it now for $130, $30 dollars more than the original OUYA. Whether or not that’s too much money for 8 more GB is up to you— but OUYA will soon be sending out a software upgrade which will enable support for USB flash drives so you can expand storage yourself.
It looks like OUYA will try to compete on the lower-end of the console market with this release coming right after the release of the PlayStation 4 and before the Xbox One’s release.

A new military strategy game is now available in the Play Store. From Spacetime Games, ‘Battle Command!’ is set in the future, and lets users control military units to build bases, raise armies, and wage war against other players.
You can build offensive units to take control of other territories, including ground forces such as grenadiers, commandos, spies, and more. You can also build vehicles such as assault bikes, jeeps, and tanks. Aircraft units are also available, including drones, choppers, air strikes and more.
Humble Bundle has built a following amongst gamers by combining “bundle” sales and flash sales with a sales model that directs resources to charities. Now the online vendor is taking another step in growing the business with the creation of The Humble Store. The new sales channel will function like most other online retailers in which you select your titles, add them to your cart, make your payment, and then wait for your download to complete.
With NVIDIA funneling all of their streaming technology under one brand, Mad Catz has wanted to get their hands on GameStream. Now there is very good news regarding GameStream’s presence on Mad Catz’s MOJO. In an interview with Engadget, a PR director from the company said that “we’re talking to NVIDIA and we hope to enable GameStream soon after the launch of the console.” Currently, GameStream is only available on NVIDIA’s SHIELD handheld console. When MOJO gets GameStream support, it would be the first third party device to do so. It’s always a good sign when companies work with one another because it accomplishes a goal more efficiently; therefore, expect this to be done soon after MOJO’s December 10 launch.
While this is starting to become a little redundant, the Kickstarter backed console GameStick has yet again been delayed due to “production and logistical” issues. What’s even worse is that now the newly targeted released date of November 15th has the $80 console pitted against Sony’s powerhouse in the PlayStation 4 release. While I don’t think having the device released during the same day as the PS4 will affect its sales whatsoever, keeping the customers who pre-ordered the device constantly in flux isn’t a good idea.
Either way, have you pre-ordered the GameStick? If not, any plans of grabbing it once it’s released?
Earlier this week we reported on the discovery that Gameloft was working on a version of Tank Battles that would run on Android powered devices. It turns out that Gameloft was a lot closer to release than we might have guessed as Tank Battles is now available in the Google Play store. Tank Battles has been available on console and computer platforms and this version follows in that tradition, porting it over to mobile devices.
Asphalt 8 is widely regarded as one of the best racing games on Google Play, with intense gameplay and great graphics. Normally that kind of game comes at a price, but it was only $0.99 at launch. Now, however, Asphalt 8 is free to anyone who wants it, and they can get it straight from Google Play.
There are of course purchases that you can make within the app for new cars and things like that, but those are not required of you, and you could just as easily get away without spending a cent.
The idea behind making the game free was essentially that Gameloft, the creators of Asphalt 8, wanted everyone to be able to play, even those that thought that spending $0.99 on an app was too much. You can find the QR code and link to the app after the break.
