Square Enix, the publisher and developer behind the Final Fantasy series, released Final Fantasy IV: After Years to Google Play this morning, a port that should have true fans going nuts. The game has been 3D and touchscreen optimized, so it should play as a Final Fantasy you have never seen. Square Enix tends to hold its titles to a very high standard, and for that, you can expect to be paying quite the premium price. (more…)
We had a special edition Tato Show this week to take The Droid Life Show’s place, given that our fearless leader was unavailable. Our very good friend MKBHD was available to join us, so myself and the rest of the DL squad chit chatted with Marques and had a good time. We discussed Marques’ recent G Flex video that went viral all over the web, as well as talked Kit Kat on the Moto X, and who we believe will be creating the next Nexus smartphone. It was a good time.

In this recently released real-time strategy game called Zombie Tycoon 2, which was directly ported from the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, you must choose your side in the zombie apocalypse. There is the “apprentice-gone-rogue Orville Tycoon and his army of heavy-duty zombies – or – his revenge-hungry mentor, Professor Brainhov, and his rioting mass of twitchy brain-munchers.” Whichever side you do choose, you can bet that there will be plenty of brain eating going on.

Did you pick up the official Nexus Wireless Charger that went on sale through Google Play yesterday? I can imagine that the $49.99 price tag made some of you hesitate on pulling on the trigger, so as always, we picked one (or two) up to give it a quick spin and share our thoughts. For those not familiar, the Nexus Wireless Charger (NWC) is officially supported by the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), and Nexus 4, since each has wireless charging built-in. With that said, I would be surprised if this charger didn’t work with other wireless charging-capable devices like the new DROID line. Unfortunately, we don’t have those in house any longer, so we won’t be able to test.
Yesterday, the official accessories for the Nexus 5 started popping up on Google Play. Both the Bumper case (in a variety of colors) and the Quick Cover became available at $34.99 and $49.99 prices, respectively. By no means is either cheap, but if there is one thing we know about Google-branded accessories – they are made to fit like a glove. And that’s exactly the case here. (more…)
This week, we finally got our hands on the leviathan known as the One Max from HTC. It is currently available from Sprint, running on the 4G LTE network, purchasable for the price of $149.99 on a two year agreement when porting your number to their network. To cut to the chase, this is the largest phone we have probably ever held. Not only is it massive, but given its metallic body, it is also extremely heavy to hold. It’s an incredibly unique experience, and we are pretty excited to put it through the paces. (more…)
This afternoon, Google is giving third party developers a sneak peek at what to expect when the official GDK (Glass Development Kit) drops. Developers can already tinker and make basic apps for Google Glass, but once the GDK is made available, the quality of apps (as well as quantity) should skyrocket. (more…)
I’m still sort of having a hard time believing that Motorola just pushed Android 4.4 to the Moto X on Verizon three weeks after Google announced it and before some Nexus devices even have it, but hey, no one is complaining over here. We’ve already updated our Verizon variant, so let’s do a quick run-through to show you some of the new goodies. (more…)
