[New Game] Ninja Fishing Makes Its Way To Android, Is Fruit Ninja For Pescetarians

If you like fishing and playing Fruit Ninja, life just got drastically better for you. Ninja Fishing, an ultra-popular iOS game, just makes its way to Android, bringing all sorts of fishy hack-n-slash action with it.

The basic gist is something like this: you catch fish, sling them up in the air, and then use your mad ninja skills to hack 'em up as quickly as possible. The similarity to Fruit Ninja is difficult to overstate here, but at least Ninja Fishing adds an extra element to the gameplay and, unlike Fruit Ninja, doesn't leave us wondering: where is all this stuff coming from and why is it flying through the air?

[Update: More Info About NA Availability] VLC Player Now Available In The Play Store For ARMv7 NEON Devices... But Not In The U.S. And Canada

It seems like we've been waiting forever for an official build of VLC to land in the Play Store, and that day has finally come... for some people, anyway. First off, the build that just landed in the Store is for devices with ARMv7 NEON CPUs only. This includes most modern processors, like Tegra 3, Exynos, OMAP4, and Snapdragon S2, S3, and S4. If you have an older processor, like Tegra 2 or one that uses ARMv6 architecture, then a build for your device should be available "in a few days."

This is the latest in our Weekend Poll series. For last week's, see Do You Regularly Rent Moves Through Google Play?

Jelly Bean isn't a huge evolution of Android like previous updates have been, but that's understandable given just how polished the OS has become. Still, as the company showed us on day 1 of I/O, things certainly have moved forward in quite a few ways (Ron provided a deeper look at some of them in his first Getting To Know Android 4.1 post).
