Humble Mobile Bundle 8 Arrives, Pay $5 or More and Get 6 Games Plus Premium Title EPOCH.2

Is it time for a new Humble Bundle, the popular pay-what-you-will game collection for charity, already? Apparently so. Mere weeks after the introduction of iteration 7, a new bundle of apps have appeared.

This time around, it features Tentacle Wars, Doodle God, Doodle Devil, and Wave Wave in the first tier, Little Big Adventure and Tower Madness 2 in the second, and EPOCH.2 in the third.  (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…)

Amazon Intros #AmazonWishList Hashtag to Twitter, Adds Items Right to Your Wish List

Back in May, Amazon teamed with Twitter to introduce a new hashtag system, one which would instantly add a purchasable item from your Twitter feed into your shopping cart on Amazon. While I personally have not seen much adoption of this service, Amazon has introduced a new hashtag for shoppers this morning, one which seems much more practical for users.  (more…)

WhoSampled Released for Android, Brings Music Discovery for Remix Lovers

Does song discovery interest you? If so, you should be happy to learn that WhoSampled has just hit Google Play, allowing users to go through decades of music DNA.

Deal: Name-Your-Own-Price Code Bundle Could Turn You Into a Beast Developer

Over at the DL Deals site, we currently have a Name-Your-Own-Price bundle of courses that should help the future developers in the building hone their skills. The pack isn’t directly Android-related, as it instead focuses most of its efforts on web development, but the languages between the two are often interchangeable. With a set of courses like this, any developer should be interested.

The bundle is a lot like the Humble Bundle we featured earlier in that you get to decide how much you think the included courses are worth. You have to spend more than $1, but not much more. By simply paying more than $1, you get a select set of courses geared toward web development. However, if you spend more than the average pay-what-you-want price (currently $14.97), you get every course, including some bonuses. Again, this works just like a Humble Bundle.

Charities are also involved, including Child’s Play, World Wildlife Fund, and Creative Commons. 10% of your purchase will go towards whichever charity you choose.

So what’s included in the bundle?

You’ll get lifetime access to 8 actionable online courses, 826 total lectures, and more than 80 hours of content “that will have you coding like a pro in no time.”

Humble Bundle 11 Brings Great Games for an Awesome Cause

A new Humble Bundle is available for mobile gamers, packed with great titles for low prices. Not only do you get great games, but when purchasing a bundle, you can select how much of your purchase price goes to the game’s developers, select charities, and a tip to the Humble Bundle service.

Included in this bundle are a few awesome titles, such as Thomas Was Alone, Cubemen, Cubemen 2, and Bridge Constructor Playground. While those games are fine and dandy, it is the titles you unlock by paying more than the average of $5.08 that are really awesome, which are Small World 2, Blackwell 1: Legacy, Blackwell 2: Unbound, Blackwell 3:Convergence, and more to follow.

If you happen to pay more than $11, however, you also unlock Surgeon Simulator and Anomaly Defenders. All of these games only for $11. Not bad at all, right?  (more…)
