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.
Small brick-maker LEGO is back with a new game to start 2015 off, this time bringing the universe of their BIONICLE line to Android gaming. The new LEGO BIONICLE game gives players the opportunity to play as one of six heroes who are trying to recover the lost Masks of Power and stop the rise of evil on the island of Okoto. In classic LEGO fashion, players have build their heroes before they can enter into battle and as they play, more than 100 customizable pieces can be collected to add to their BIONICLE.
Following its official announcement last month, NHL 2K15 is now available to download for $7.99 through the Play Store.

Rovio is primarily known for their Angry Birds line of games. Their newest title, RETRY, invites players to take flight in a different manner, this time in an “8-bit jalopy of an airplane.” Rovio really plays up the retro aspects of the title, pointing out the 8-bit graphics look, the collection of coins as you work through levels, and a synthesized soundtrack.
Rovio took to its official blog earlier today to announce the soft launch of its new, action-packed Angry Birds Transformers game in both Finland and New Zealand.
Following a successful launch in these two countries, the title will go live in Australia and Canada, closely followed by the United States. It will then gradually move to the rest of the world — all before Thursday, October 30.

Star 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.

If you’re a fan of HBO’s Game of Thrones, you’ll want to check out Game of Thrones Ascent, a new mobile game that ties into the world of the show. The game, which has been previously available on the web and iOS, already has 4.5 million players, so it’s fairly popular already.
The app puts you in an immersive world full of thousands of quests and dozens of adventures, where you can create your own identity to interact with other players and characters from the Game of Thrones universe. The storylines and quests also update as the show goes on, so it creates a nice second-screen experience if you keep up with the shower weekly.
