Listen up GTA’ers. GTA III has finally landed on Android. Rockstar Games has released Grand Theft Auto 3 to the market, in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the game. This isn’t a remake, it’s the real deal, just optimized for play on touch screen devices. I wasted no time this morning downloading it and giving it a quick one over on my 10.1 Tab. It looks awesome. Not ground-shaking graphics, but cool nonetheless.
Rockstar did a fantastic job of bringing this to Android. Controls are a little weird, but then again I’m used to having a controller in my hands playing this game. Fret not though, Rockstar did think of that while making it and the game does support a USB controller as long as your device does. Hit up the QR code or the Market link for quick access to the game. Let us know in the comments, if you plan on picking it up. Is this your first time playing it or are you just getting it for the nostalgia of having it?
The future of gaming is here folks and thanks to OnLive, playable cloud games are hitting a tablet and smartphone near you. It’s been in the works for quite some time but looks like beginning today OnLive will finally make the experience available for a number of devices on the market via an Android application. Our friends over at The Verge managed to get a sit down with the OnLive folks in which they provided a demo of the software running on the HTC Flyer and Motorola Xoom as well as an iPad 2. There aren’t a ton of touch games as of yet, however, there were demos of Defense Grid Gold and Split/Second which happened to work very well. Defense Grid Gold is a tower defense game which supports pinch-to-zoom and finger scrolling and Split/Second is a fast-paced arcade style racing game which allows you to use virtual joysticks, sliders and buttons to maneuver. OnLive has been working with some popular names as well to work hard in getting good quality touchscreen games to the market. One such game, L.A. Noire, will implement touchscreen controls as well and will allow you to manipulate criminal evidence with your fingers. » Read the rest
