XCOM Board Game Gains Android Support With Free Companion App

If you're a gamer, you probably know XCOM as the recently revived turn-based alien killin' strategy game. It's also been given an official board game, a natural fit for the turn-based combat so heavily featured in the digital version. Until today you needed an iOS device for the mandatory companion app, which handles such fiddly things as player turns and hit percentages - the things your DM used to do on pen and paper.

Ubisoft's Far Cry 4 'Arena Master' Mobile Game Is Basically Pokemon, Plus Guns And Slavery

If you've been following the gaming news at all, you know that the biggest release of the week is the latest iteration of Ubisoft's sandbox shooter Far Cry. The fourth game moves the action to the Himalayan country of "I Can't Believe It's Not Tibet," and tasks you with leading a ragtag army of rebels against an oppressive and tyrannical dictator. (Seriously, still not Tibet.) Ubisoft can't make a big-budget game without releasing a mobile counterpart, so say hello to Far Cry 4 Arena Master.

Ubisoft Releases Assassin's Creed Unity Companion Android App Ahead Of The Game's November 11th Launch

ASUS Releases ZenWatch Manager, Remote Camera, And Wellness Apps For Its Upcoming Android Wear Device

LG and Samsung got the Android Wear party started, releasing the G Watch and Gear Live, respectively. Those watches only need Google's Wear app to function, but Motorola changed the formula a bit with the Moto 360, tying the watch to the existing Motorola Connect app. For the upcoming ZenWatch, ASUS is beating them all (well, sort of) with three separate watch-focused apps.

The first new ASUS app is simply titled "ZenWatch Manager," and it's essentially a remote setup function for your watch on your phone screen.

[New Game] Watch Dogs Pits Console And Mobile Gamers Against Each Other With New Companion App

As a game centered around using a smartphone to get ahead on the streets of Chicago, it's only natural that Watch Dogs would get a companion app. But this isn't your typical bonus offering that just provides a mini-map, some background information, and a few doodads. Watch_Dogs Companion: ctOS is a multiplayer extension to the main game. While console or PC players are doing everything they can to make it from checkpoint to checkpoint, mobile gamers are giving their all to stop them.

Upcoming SingStar App Will Let Players Use Their Smartphones As Microphones On PS3 And PS4

WARNING: The following Android Police story contains Carly Rae Jepsen's Call Me Maybe.

Music games are great for parties with close and consenting friends who won't judge you when you completely destroy that one riff in Down on the Corner. But they do have one failing: you can't play them without all the plastic instrument accessories, making spontaneous sessions at a friend's place something of a chore.

The creators of Sony's SingStar series have found a solution that will make you say, "why didn't I think of that?" The forthcoming PlayStation 4 edition of SingStar probably won't change the karaoke game's winning formula, but it will let you install a companion app on your Android phone and use said phone like a tiny, rectangular microphone.

[New App] Titanfall Gets Companion App For Android, PC Gamers Need Not Apply

Microsoft put a good deal of focus on Titanfall when it pushed out the Xbox One, and it remains the most high-profile title for the console. The action-packed first person shooter shakes up the traditional deathmatch formula by adding mechs that players are free to hop in and out of. As a result, the game introduces more of a vertical component to the firefight, as combatants are able to hop along walls and wage war across various floors.

[New App] Sony Publishes The Companion App For The BRH10 Mini-Phone, Even Though You Can't Buy One Yet

Today's phones are big. They're practically trying to be HDTVs, which makes it hard to get them into your pants, and even harder to get them out. So Sony is releasing a teeny tiny phone for your phone that can answer calls with a microphone and a speaker. Insert Xzibit joke here. The BRH10 was shown off at Mobile World Congress back in February, and it's on pre-order at a few places, but you can't buy it yet.
