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…)

Dots & Co Hits Google Play, a More Adventurous Take on the Original Dots

From the makers of the original Dots game, as well as the sequel TwoDots, Dots & Co is what I would label as a more adventurous take on the same Dots gameplay. While you still go around popping dots and making squares for more points, there is something similar to what could be labeled as a storyline taking place in Dots & Co.

We begin Dots & Co with a single character, making her way through a very dotty world. As we progress, we meet companions. These companions have special traits, such as the ability to clear an entire color of dots, making select levels a bit easier. However, even with the addition of actual characters, it’s basically the same Dots game as the original.  (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…)

Fallout Shelter Celebrates 1-Year Anniversary, Intros Quests and Improved Combat

To celebrate the one-year anniversary of Fallout Shelter, the good folks at Vault-Tec (aka Bethesda) are doing big things. Since launch of Fallout Shelter onto iOS and Android, Overseers have been stuck inside of the Vault, not allowed to experience the action that happens outside. But now, Quests have been added to the game, allowing you, the person in charge, to go explore the Wasteland.  (more…)

Report: Trading is Coming Soon to Pokémon GO, But so are Sponsored Locations

Moving forward, we promise to not stupidly SEO spam about Pokémon GO (we’ve been pretty respectful, I think), but the latest news is important for those who have been enjoying the game. For anyone who knows what the old Pokémon cards were all about, trading was a big deal. You get a few good cards, trade them to a friend for something better, then that cycle repeats itself until everyone is satisfied with their collection.

Trading is one aspect that Pokémon GO launched without, and for fans of the franchise, that was a major downside. However, in a recent interview with Niantic’s CEO, John Hanke, trading is indeed coming sometime soon to the game. (more…)
