The game-changing Wikipad is one step closer to being in the hands of Android gamers everywhere, but one lucky son of a gun was able to see the intriguing tablet in action, courtesy of its creator James Bower. Right off the bat, users are treated to what is a fairly slim and trim profile that is smooth to the touch except for the middle of the back. That section of the device has a square-shaped groove along the back center of the tablet, which is intended to help give it a solid grip. Oh and Bower also touts the groove helps to “keep the tablet cool under stressful gaming power-consumption”.
The big focus of the device is no doubt its performance capabilities and the Wikipad delivers. Powered by a Tegra 3 chip and Jelly Bean, it helps to power games like Cody and a port of famed action-adventure game Max Payne like a true champ. The graphics were fluid as expected, while he controls gave better-than-expected results– thanks to comfortable dual analog sticks and responsive buttons. One minor critique may be the fact the tablet plus controller dock can possibly make the complete unit a little heavier than some would like. Then again, it’s assumed most people won’t be playing on the Wikipad for hours on end.

The Wikipad is a different kind of Android tablet, made with gamers in mind. Having impressive specs such as a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad core processor and a 10.1 inch IPS display, the Wikipad could be the tablet that hardcore gamers have been waiting for.
What separates the Wikipad from the large selection of Android tablets is the dock that makes the tablet a controller. Of course a game system is worthless without entertaining games made for it. Gamestop is working with game publishers to make exclusive content for the Wikipad, and Sony has already left there stamp on the device giving it PlayStation Certification. It will also have the ability to play streaming games with Gaikai.

We saw a teaser over the weekend for Rovio’s latest creation and they just told us that their new game, “Bad Piggies”, will be available on September 27th on Android, iOS, Mac, Windows 8, and Windows Phone. As far as the premise or game play, we don’t have a lot of information, but we do know that the focal point is the “second-most-loved characters in the Angry Birds universe,” the pigs. We also know that you won’t find a slingshot anywhere in the game and it will be a “totally new and unique gameplay experience.”
Executive Vice President of games at Rovio, Petri Järvilehto, said:
“There’s so much more to these pigs than what is seen in the Angry Birds games, and Bad Piggies is the first glimpse into what’s going on in the imaginative and ingenious minds of the pigs.”
Well we still have 3 weeks to go so want to guess how many more teaser trailers we will see? I’m guessing two more teasers and one full trailer.
Full press release after the break:
Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise has proven itself to be a successful venture, and a new video suggests the developer could soon be expanding its portfolio. Titled ‘something PIG is coming’, the video shows a single bird being pounced upon by numerous little green pigs. It seems as though the tables have turned, this time putting the pigs in charge.
Actual gameplay isn’t shown, and a release date wasn’t mentioned. Although, if you’re the anxious type, you can check out the official video after the break. Read more

After releasing a teaser video last week, Glu Mobile has released their newest game, Blood & Glory: Legend, in the Google Play store. The title follows up the original Blood & Glory game. Gameplay features one-on-one battles against computer controlled opponents. Most battles take place in an arena patterned after an ancient Roman stadium, though some other environments are present in the game. As players win battles they can earn money that can be used to buy new gear or they can plunk down some real money through in-app purchases. Combined with perfecting different moves, selection of the proper equipment will be key to success. Outside of the gameplay graphics, Blood & Glory: Legend uses a comic book metaphor to advance the story .
Blood & Glory: Legend is free, but is rather large at 315MB. If you are interested in trying it out just hit one of the download links below.

Rovio, creators of the popular Angry Birds franchise, appear to be getting closer to a spin-off that will let users play on the side of the Bad Piggies. Accounts have been created on Facebook, Twitter and Google+ for the Bad Piggies. On Facebook, they list their mission as “Stealing eggs!!” Could that be a hint as to what the game play may be like? Others seem to think it will be centered on the building of structures to defend against the Angry Birds. Fans of the game may want to hit the source link and follow the Bad Piggies page on Facebook.
