Auralux Goes Live in Google Play, an Abstract Real-Time Strategy Game

A new game by the name of Auralux just arrived on Google Play. It is a real-time strategy based game, where you command stars that produce little warrior lights that you use to capture other stars and kill enemies. Depending on your stars strength (some are up-gradable and some are not) it will produce a certain amount of soldiers per second. You then use those soldiers to go capture grey stars or destroy enemy stars. To beat the level, you must capture all of the stars that appear in that system.  (more…)

Acer Announces A700 Tablet With Full 1080 Display, Available for Pre-Order Now

Acer is quietly making some very nice Android tablets at some good prices, but if you didn’t know it, you would never give them a second look. Acer has just announced their newest tablet, the A700 as a newer version to their ICONIA line and has packed a full 1080p HD screen into their already very solid tablet.

The resolution has been bumped up to 1920 x 1200 and fits very nicely with the Tegra 3 processor underneath. And maybe the best part of the tablet, other than the fact that it already runs an almost stock version of Ice Cream Sandwich, is that the tablet still packs an insane amount of battery, one that has been said to last 10 hours under heavy use. We reviewed the A510 (read the review here) and loved our time with it. The A700 seems to be a decent upgrade to the line while still keeping a low price. Pre-orders for this tablet are live today for $449.99. What do you think? Enough specs for you at that price point?

Anonymous Asus Rep Confirms Nexus 7 Tablet, Ready in Time for Google I/O

At this year’s Computex event, a representative of Asus confirmed the partnership with Google in creating a Nexus “7” tablet that is to be ready for shipment by the end of this month. Further details such as Jelly Bean and the Tegra 3 were not confirmed, but with Google I/O taking place in the same time frame, it’s hard to see this as coincidence. This may not be official, but it is giving more cred to the previous rumors that mentioned the same thing.

NVIDIA Announces Five New Tegra Optimized Games at This Year’s E3, Dead Trigger a Clear Show Stopper

The good folks over at NVIDIA are currently showing off five new exciting game titles at their E3 booth down in Los Angeles. The games are not available for download yet, but there’s nothing wrong with getting them hyped up. The new Tegra 3 optimized games are titled Dead Trigger, Bounty Arms, Heroes Call, Puddle, and Demons’ Score. What has me the most excited is definitely Dead Trigger. The game comes from the same makers of Shadowgun and it’s all about zombies and taking them down with huge guns. Just what I needed!  (more…)

Renaissance Blood THD Hits The Google Play Store, Tegra 3 Powers This Fun Rail-Shooter

We have sung the praises of the Tegra 3 quad-core chipset, and one of the biggest strengths of it is the muscle that it can put into mobile games. The latest game to take advantage of all this processing power is Renaissance Blood THD that just hit the Play Store today. The story sets you in times long ago, just after Leonardo Da Vinci has passed away, and you are scouring the ancient worlds trying to find the blueprints to his final machine.

You’re decked out with a crossbow, with unlimited ammo, a hammer for smashing things and people and a gun (which is assumed Da Vinci made since guns weren’t exactly around at this time period.) Once you know your mission, there are no shortage of baddies and bosses to mow down. (more…)
