Humble Bundle is doing something a little different to celebrate E3 this week, and that's good news for anyone who wants to save a little cash. The special E3 bundle contains over $100 worth of games and content, but most relevant to our purposes here is the Android download of Anomaly 2, which is a cool game that costs $5 all by itself. You also get it on PC/Mac/Linux.
The deal is pretty much the same as other Humble Bundles – you pay what you want with the cash being split between Humble Bundle, the developers, and charity (the ESA Foundation in this case).
The folks behind the MOGA wireless gamepads for Android announced today that the next-generation MOGA Power Series controllers will be unveiled at E3 later this month. In addition to an updated physical design, MOGA is talking up its new MOGA Boost system. Boost will recharge your phone while you game.
The Power Series will come in two different styles – a compact version for hauling around, and a larger (less portable) one.
Gameloft is preparing to unveil the newest incarnation of it's popular and totally original first-person shooter franchise Modern Combat. We can glean several things from the trailer: there will be guns, there will be helicopters, and oh my god the graphics.
This trailer is obviously designed to look as good as it possibly can, but it does seem to be a cut above Gameloft's previous efforts. The level of detail is impressive and texture resolution is very high.
Madfinger Games is hard at work on the follow up to one of last year's blockbuster mobile games. Dead Trigger 2 is nearing completion and the developers have decided to release a few new details and drop some impressive gameplay footage on us. The video demo shows the stark difference between Nvidia's last generation mobile chip and the new Tegra 4.
Dead Trigger 2 is going to behave more like a massive online RPG by encouraging cooperation with other players.
You may remember the name Heroes Call from E3, when NVIDIA touted it as one of the major upcoming games that would sport customizations to take full advantage of their Tegra chip. The Tegra HD (THD) version of the game was released last night at the low, low price of free. Thankfully, this might just be one of those rare cases in which "free" gets you quite a lot.
With E3 well underway, mobile developer Gameloft has let loose a salvo of new titles it'll be unveiling at the conference today. These include: Asphalt 7: Heat, The Amazing Spider-Man, Kingdoms & Lords, and Cosmic Colony.
Asphalt 7: Heat
Asphalt 7 is the latest in the iteration in Gameloft's long-running racing franchise, though it appears the gameplay has remained largely unchanged (read: racing games on phones still aren't very good), while graphics and the choice of vehicles have been noticeably stepped up.
It's no secret that Minecraft, a simple, yet amazingly addictive and immersive game, is coming to Android - we've been hearing about it for months. It's also no secret that the first version, exclusive to Xperia Play, will be unveiled at E3 in just a few weeks - the conference is scheduled for June 7th-9th.
However, what exactly the game would look and play like on a mobile Android device when it is released was unknown...
Remember this demo I posted from the Google I/O of the amazingly stable flying drone sporting 2 video cameras on-board? The one you can remotely control with your Android phone?
Let me remind you:
As there was no price for this future Christmas gift list topper announced yet besides the "couple hundred dollars" range, all we could do was guess.
However, now we won't have to guess for too long - Parrot, the maker of this drone, has published on their Facebook page that the official release date and price will be announced at the E3 conference in less than 3 weeks - June 15th, 2010:
We’re happy to announce that Parrot AR.DRONE US street price and release date will be revealed at E3, June 15th.
