[Hands-on] Star Wars: Rivals, an uninspired corridor shooter

Now that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise, I am wholeheartedly expecting them to release as many games, toys, mugs, pizza cutters, and door mats branded with the license as humanly possible. Frankly, Disney would be an idiot not to cash in on Star Wars' mainstream and cult followings. That is why it is no surprise to see the beta release of Star Wars: Rivals on the Play Store. It is also no surprise to see that it is a free-to-play corridor shooter rife with poor controls, repetitive levels, and loot crates that are explicitly tied to plenty of in-app purchases.

To no one's surprise, Disney has released a Star Wars themed match-3 puzzler

I don't know why, but apparently every franchise out there just has to shoehorn its name onto a match-3 puzzle game. We get it, Candy Crush made a ton of money, but can we please move on from this tired genre already? Sadly, it would appear that Disney thinks not. In their latest attempt to cash in on the property they have released Star Wars: Puzzle Droids, a match-3 puzzle game.

[Update: Google responds] Google Assistant promoting Beauty and the Beast blurs the lines between advertising and news

One of Google Assistant's more notable features is giving you a summary of your day when asked - including commute time, weather, news from user-selected sources, etc. For some users, the summary now includes a mention of Disney's Beauty and the Beast film - but Google says it's not an ad.

Star Wars: Force Arena launches officially on the Play Store after limited beta

I haven't seen a single Star Wars movie (that's probably one of the worst things to admit to a techie/nerdy audience, so I'll see myself out by the end of this post and work on fixing that situation pronto) but I feel like I know most of the story and characters because of how much the franchise has been played out in pop culture, online, in real life discussions, toy stores, and everywhere else really. But for those of you who enjoy Star Wars and the attention it's been getting, there's one more avenue where you can geek out: the new Star Wars: Force Arena game.

Report: Google reaches agreement with CBS for 'Unplugged' web TV service - Fox and Disney may follow

The future of cable cutting, getting rid of expensive cable or satellite television service in favor or more economical web subscriptions, is murky. Currently users need to choose between competing libraries on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and other big-name streamers, or negate some of the savings of cable cutting by subscribing to multiple services. Some newer offerings like SlingTV and PlayStation Vue are bridging the gap, and it looks like Google wants to join them, according to the latest report from the Wall Street Journal.

Disney killing off Marvel: Avengers Alliance 1 and 2 games on September 30

Since 2009, Disney has owned the entertainment arm of Marvel, meaning it has full rights to the Marvel characters, such as Iron Man, Spiderman, Thor, and anything else the company creates. Sadly, this means Disney can also kill off things. Today, Disney has announced the two Marvel: Avengers Alliance games will be shutting down on September 30.

Disney says it is no longer accepting new in-app purchases for either games, but they will remain available to play until the end of the month. The original game has already been taken off Google Play, but its sequel has remained up, at least for the time being.

Kingdom Hearts X, A Browser Game Based On The Popular Square-Enix-Disney Universe, Gets An 'Unchained' Android Port

I find most Square-Enix RPGs to be baffling in that somewhat generic anime way: as one reviewer puts it, the stories always seem to revolve around a bunch of teenagers killing Satan with the power of friendship. Throw in perhaps one of the biggest (or at least most complicated) crossovers in media history, and my head starts to spin. So it is with the Kingdom Hearts series of action-RPGs. It's been mixing Squaresoft's Final Fantasy mythos with more or less every Disney animated movie, plus its own impenetrable plots and original characters, since the first game came out on the PS2.

Disney Crossy Road Hops Into The Play Store

Imagine, if you will, a version of Crossy Road with Disney characters. Have you imagined it? Okay, that thing you just imagined exists, and it's called Disney Crossy Road. It's like the original Crossy Road, but with characters from a wide array of Disney franchises.

Gameloft And Disney Team Up For The Magical Park-Building Game 'Disney Magic Kingdoms', Out Now

For many young kids, Disneyland is a dream come true. And if they're old enough to dream of going on Disney rides, they're probably also old enough to know that Gameloft is a game developer to approach with caution. Some games are good. Others are ripe with in-app purchases. And the ones that are good tend to have IAPs too.

Disney has partnered with Gameloft to produce Disney Magic Kingdoms, a game about building your own park and keeping visitors happy.
