Star Wars: Galactic Defense coming to Android later this year

star wars galactic defenseStar Wars: Galactic Defense will be coming to Android later this year, combining the Star Wars prequels with classic tower defense gameplay. The game looks entertaining enough, although it’s probably not going to be a revolutionary genre-bending game. The developer has opened early registration for gameplay information and will be giving away some free in-game items for signing up. All you need is an email address to do, and you’ll be among the first to know when the app hits the Play Store.

If Star Wars and tower defense games are two of your hobbies, you can check out some screenshots and footage of the game below.

Non-Sony Android devices get access to Sony PS4 Remote Play thanks to new port

xda_ps4_remote_play_port

When Sony announced their new Xperia Z3 smartphones during IFA 2014, one of the new features included was PS4 Remote Play. This new feature meant owners of the new devices could use their Sony smartphones as a second screen for the their Sony PS4 gaming platform. Even better than that, users could continue to play PS4 titles remotely on their mobile device. This was some great news for gamers who had PlayStation 4 devices if they were going to invest in a new Sony smartphone. Unfortunately, a Sony spokesperson said the company had “no intent to bring remote play to any device other than Xperia” meaning a lot of PlayStation 4 owners would miss out on the feature. That may have changed now thanks to a new port developed by XDA member XperiaPlaystation who has figured out how to get it working with a much larger population of Android devices.

The SHIELD Tablet is a pretty good device as is. It has a well-sized display, front speakers, a stylus, and the power of an NVIDIA processor. The two things that the SHIELD Tablet has lacked — a 4G LTE connection and additional internal storage — is arriving soon. The SHIELD Tablet with 4G LTE and 32GB of storage is now up for pre-order. It costs an additional $100 over the standard 16GB model, priced at $399.

The SHIELD Tablet with 4G LTE and 32GB of storage is certified to work on AT&T’s network. For activating the SHIELD Tablet at AT&T, the carrier will credit $100 to a customer’s bill. So there is a bit of an incentive to use the tablet with AT&T. Of course, it will also work with T-Mobile’s network as well.

New ‘Swing Copters’ update makes gameplay easier, less frustrating for users

Swing_Copters

Flappy Bird creator Dong Nyugen hasn’t yet added his hit game back to the Play Store, but his new game, Swing Copters, has been getting a ton of popularity in the past few weeks.

However, the game has received reviews asking him to make it easier, as many have said that it’s been too difficult to rack up even one point while playing.

In an update released today (now version 1.1), Swing Copters has been improved so users can better predict the character’s movement, thus making it easier to play the game. There are also unspecified bug fixes.

If you deleted the game on its first go-around, now may be a good time to pick it back up (if you’re into this kind of stuff). Hit the break for the link to the game in the Play Store.
