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…)

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. Geared towards owners of the NVIDIA SHIELD (because of the awesome SHIELD Controller), but compatible with all Android TV devices (Nexus Player, included), this version of the game pairs perfectly with a game controller, even though you will probably only use a single button while playing.  (more…)

Friday App Sales: Last Horizon, Minecraft: Story Mode, Star Walk, and More

The weekend has arrived and we already know you got nothing going on. Even if you do, I’m sure you can find a bit of time to play a few games or mess with a few new apps. Over on Google Play, you can grab a ton of apps and games on sale, including Final Fantasy VI, Last Horizon, and Minecraft: Story Mode.

If games aren’t your thing, a couple nifty apps called Star Walk: Astronomy Guide and Star Walk 2 are also on sale, both of which I use myself when gazing up at the twinkling stars. They are great apps for identifying constellations and which planets you are staring at.

Have a look at the full list below.  (more…)

Pokémon GO SDCC Panel: Game is Only 10% of Final Product, More Features on the Way

At this year’s SDCC, a lot of attention was paid to the Pokémon GO panel, featuring members of the Niantic Lab’s team. A lot of details were revealed, but most importantly, it should be known that no legendary Pokémon were released for those in attendance to catch. That would have really chapped my hide.

According to what was discussed, Pokémon GO is hardly finished, with the developers stating that the game is at about 10% of what they want it to be. Yes, you read that right, only 10%. As for which features we can expect in the future, Niantic wants to bring more Pokémon (as in later generation Pokémon), release legendaries (but only when everyone in the world has access to the game), as well as new functionality for Gyms.  (more…)

Borderlands 2 Hits Google Play for Select NVIDIA SHIELD Devices, Priced at $15

The day has finally come, although, somewhat unfittingly because one of the people who would appreciate this announcement the most is no longer writing for us. Eric, this means you. Borderlands 2, the sequel to Borderlands, is now available for the SHIELD Android TV and SHIELD Tablet from NVIDIA. Talk of Borderlands 2 for Android began in 2012, and funny enough, Eric actually wrote that post.

The Borderlands 2 title you will now find on Google Play is exactly the same as you would see on the gaming console inside of your home. You will be leading a team of misfit companions, using unique strengths and weapons to take on Handsome Jack in the world of Pandora. Of course, all of the same loot, weapons, and Relics are available for your usage.  (more…)

Party Hard on Google Play for NVIDIA SHIELD Devices, Priced at $13

Imagine you are comfortably snoozing in your bed, only to be rudely awoken by your noisy neighbors who are throwing a raging house party next door. This would upset you, right? Typically, a call to the police for a noise complaint would be a decent route to take, but not for the main character in Party Hard. In this world, you take matters into your own hands, dispensing justice and death to anyone who dares wake you from slumber.  (more…)
