Guess Who’s Back, Back Again, Q*Bert’s Back, for NVIDIA SHIELD

My hope is that the above headline was read to the melody of Eminem’s hit song “Without Me.” What a classic. You know what else is classic? Q*Bert is classic. To be completely honest, which is something we always strive for, I did not play Q*Bert as a child. I was born later in the 20th century, meaning by the time I was playing video games, I was on the SEGA Genesis. From what I know, there was no Q*Bert, or at least not any popular title utilizing the character of Q*Bert.

Moving right along, a new Q*Bert game called Q*Bert Rebooted is available on Google Play this morning for $6, made specifically for owners of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV box and SHIELD Tablets. For fans of the original Q*Bert titles, I think you will be quite happy with this release. The game features classic arcade action, in addition to 30+ 3D rebooted levels to play through.  (more…)

Auralux: Constellations, a Sequel, Launches August 25 on Android

For fans of the original Auralux game, launching all the way back in July of 2012, the sequel is inbound! While the original launched with a Tegra-exclusive tag, it appears the sequel will not be device specific, allowing everyone to enjoy the real-time strategy gaming that is Auralux. Titled Auralux: Constellations, the sequel is essentially the same game as the original, but with a few new features that are definitely worth mentioning.  (more…)

Pokémon GO Beta Updated With All-New Tracker System

After yesterday’s update to the Pokémon GO app (you know, the one that brought us grass), beta testers are beginning to see what we would label as a major update for the in-game Pokémon tracking system.

Revealed last night by multiple testers of the game on Twitter and reddit, Niantic has been hearing our cries. Not only does the company intend on bringing a solid tracking system back into the game, but is making it easier to find select Pokémon you have around you in general.  (more…)

Alto’s Adventure Comes to Android TV and NVIDIA SHIELD for $4.49

The game everyone seemed to love before Pokemon GO took over the world, Alto’s Adventure, is now available for Android TV devices on Google Play.
