We're a week into the second Humble Mobile Bundle, and as to be expected, additional games have been added. The three new titles are Karateka Classic, QWOP, and God of Blades. Anyone who has already purchased the bundle will get the titles included without any extra effort. Those of you who haven't yet jumped in just have to pay over the average (which is currently under five dollars) to get your hands on all nine titles.
Video games make a lot of assumptions about aliens, mainly that they're going to be two-dimensional and prone to shooting at stuff. It's an unfair stereotype, if you ask me, but also makes for a better game. That's very much the case in Super Crossfire which packs a ton of alien-blasting action. Yay for stereotypes.
This game includes 150 waves of glowing alien craft with another 150 that can be unlocked later.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

Japan loves vending machines. You know those machines with iPods and Bose headphones at the airport? Japan had them first, among, many, many others, including machines for liquor, live bait, produce, Pokemon, and various other slightly insane things. Now it looks like Google is joining the fray with a promotional machine that dispenses Android games right to your phone. What?
Engadget was on-hand at a Google event where the company showed off one of three vending machines that will soon go into service.
Frequent Android gamers know that the newest AAA titles are insatiable power hogs, and more than a few are made infinitely better with the addition of hardware controls. Until someone comes out with an Xperia Play MAXX (seriously Sony, get on that), the MOGA Power series might just be the best way to address these issues. The controller/external battery combos have been a long time coming, but now they're finally available for pre-order on Amazon.
The weekend is nearly upon us, and you're probably looking to cut loose. You know, live a little. Well, downloading some apps and games is a kind of living. If that's all you really want out of life, we've got everything you need right here. If your hopes and dreams are more extensive, we still have a small sliver of what you need.
The world of Shadowrun was created 25 years ago as a tabletop RPG setting, and it certainly had its fans. When Jordan Weisman, one of the original creators of Shadowrun wanted to make it into a proper video game, the internet was more than happy to get involved. The Kickstarter campaign pulled in $1.8 million and now the end result is finally available on an Android tablet near you.
Shadowrun Returns is a traditional turn-based RPG with touch-optimized controls.
