Just Dance Now Lands on Google Play, Time to Get Your Groove On

Ubisoft Entertainment launched Just Dance Now, one of the more popular video game titles of the last few years, right onto Google Play for Android devices this week. In these games, which are much like an at-home Dance Dance Revolution, players must dance to the moves that are displayed on a TV, using a Kinect or Wii remote to track body movements.

Once downloaded onto your Android device, the game needs a display hooked up to the Internet to work, acting as your screen to show you which moves you need to pull off. Your phone then acts as the motion tracker.  (more…)

The official gameplay trailer for Angry Birds Transformers has been released by Rovio, with the game now available to those who live in New Zealand and Finland.

Gameloft Launches Asphalt Overdrive, Ryan Gosling’s Favorite Racing Game

Gameloft has a new title on Google Play this week, one which should have Ryan Gosling’s character from Drive quite excited. The game is called Asphalt Overdrive, set right on the streets of “modern 80s” Southern California.

While the gameplay looks like  your typical Gameloft action-packed racing variety, the soundtrack is what gained my attention. Infused with fast-paced techno and house beats, you will race down the streets in brightly colored Lamborghinis and Ferraris, hoping to avoid cops in their souped-up muscle cars.  (more…)

This week, they are handing out $135 worth of apps for completely free, and a few of the titles are absolutely worth the hassle of downloading their mobile marketplace.  (more…)

Disney Announces Star Wars: Galactic Defense, Continues to Milk Money Cow

The Star Wars franchise is very important to many people. Over the last decade or so, the story has become more cartoonish and kid appropriate, even though the original trilogy never dealt with situations that I would find inappropriate for younger audiences.

Nevertheless, as we all expected, Disney is not about to let their $4 billion investment go to waste, taking no time at all to pump out countless games from different game studios, and of course, Star Wars: Episode VII.

The newest game teased for a later-this-year release is Star Wars: Galactic Defense. The gameplay sounds much like the other Star Wars game that just released, Star Wars: Defender, where you are tasked with building and protecting towers. Sounds original.  (more…)
