Madfinger Games has been teasing Shadowgun: Deadzone for too long! We just received word that they have opened a private beta to European players and the U.S. will also be receiving the same beta treatment here in the next two weeks.
Madfinger will want to start testing network connections, fixing bugs, and other misc. things that could spell trouble for a massive online multiplayer game such as Deadzone. The open beta for the U.S. will be in Google Play, so everyone that wants to take part can have super easy access.
I am definitely pumped for this release and we’ll let you know as soon as the beta goes live for us here in the States.
We won’t get into how long we’ve been waiting for the multiplayer “Deadzone” version of SHADOWGUN, but do know that we played it all the way back at CES in January and we were told that we could expect a launch in Q1 of this year. As you may have realized, Q1 was really long ago and we’re now sitting in Q4, still awaiting release information. (more…)
Last month, our friends over at NVIDIA held their first annual Player’s Choice Awards to determine which Tegra-optimized Android title was the best of the best of the best, sir. Major titles such as Shadowgun, GTAIII, Dark Meadow, and many others were up for three top titles – Best Graphics, Best Gameplay, and Best Overall. We had many of our own readers vote, so let’s get down to it. (more…)
For one week, a team of game developers has collaborated to bring consumers some great titles at discounted prices. This team of smarties has created a website that lists out some of Android’s (along with other platforms) more popular titles such as World of Goo, Shadowgun, Osmos HD, at discounted rates. Buying straight from the developer is a good way of supporting these guys/girls and letting them know that Android is undoubtedly the sweetest mobile platform around. Follow the link below to see if that game you’ve wanted really bad is finally on sale. Also note, that it’s not just Android games being sold – there are apps available for iOS, Mac, and even Steam users. Winning much?

The deals have started in the Google Play Store. Google said they would be hosting a ton of awesome deals, but we didn’t know it would be starting this quick. Games like ShadowGun, Osmos HD, and tons of others are just a $0.50 in the Play Store. From what Google said, we can expect these deals to last for seven days, but we don’t know if they’ll be swapping out apps each day. Might want to hurry and snatch them up quick before the deals disappear.
Also, Google Play Deals which change everyday for this week are just $0.25. Enjoy!

Yesterday at NVIDIA’s press event we got a sneak peak at a couple of apps that are sure to get Android users excited. If you happen to own an i*ad, then it is quite possible that you have heard of Snapseed. It has recently won the “iPad App of the Year” award, but is now coming to Android. The Snapseed application allows users to turn any ordinary photo into a work of art. With its amazing filters and effects software, it is no wonder why it won app of the year.
Another announcement that came from yesterday, is that MadFinger is working on a multiplayer edition of ShadowGun. It’s called ShadowGun: DeadZone and it will keep folks busy for a long time with the ability to play with others just as you would any other online multiplayer shooter. And from what we saw yesterday, they were playing with Xbox controllers. Oh boy. (more…)
