DraStic Nintendo DS Emulator Updated With Android TV Support, High-Res 3D, Custom Shader Support, And More

The Nintendo DS, though pretty old by game standards, is a tricky thing to emulate. Aside from the dual screens, it uses standard button, touchscreen, and microphone inputs, and it has a plethora of 2D and 3D games available. Despite this, DraStic remains the best emulator for the DS on the Play Store (and one of the most complete emulators for Android regardless of system). The latest update adds even more goodies.

Google Play Summer Sale Discounts A Smattering Of Popular Games To A Dollar Or Less: Monument Valley, Botanicula, Republique, Marvel Pinball, And More

It's high summer in the United States, and it's the perfect time to go outside and do stuff. Unless you live in the south, or the midwest, or the southwest, or parts of California, or the northeast, or any major city where there's more concrete than grass. For those places it's the perfect time to sit inside, hide from 100+ degree temperatures, and curse your air conditioning bill. While you're doing all that non-exercising and non-self-actualizing, here are some games you can pick up on the cheap.

NVIDIA Updates The Shield Portable To Android 5.1, Removes Unsupported Features And Games

The original Shield Portable is finally getting the bump to Android 5.1 from 4.4, but don't rush right out and download the OTA just yet. There are a few caveats with this one. Yes, you get the latest version of Android, but it will remove several games and features that are bundled with the old KitKat software.

Piloteer Is A Beautiful Physics-Based Jetpack Sim With Punishing Difficulty

Sure, jetpacks seem like a good idea at first, then you realize how hard it would be to not die while using one. Piloteer gives form to that fear with a mercilessly challenging physics simulator. You have a jetpack in this game, but it doesn't have any fancy gyroscopic stabilizers or wussy safety measures. You fly, you fail (fabulously), you fly again.

In the main career mode of Piloteer, you are given 60 different missions across three lovely art deco levels. The missions can be anything from land in this spot, to stay in the air for 5 seconds, to fly through these rings.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf Is The First WH40K Mobile Title That Actually Looks Like The Board Game

There have been Warhammer 40K games on Android before. They have not been particularly good, mostly because they simply slap the license on top of an existing mobile game style and hope the dedicated fans will spend some money. Not so with Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. Not only does this game come from HeroCraft, a developer that can generally be relied upon to create decent games, it's a top-down, turn-based strategy title. What an idea!

Space Wolf is closer to a tactical strategy game than a straight-up board game adaptation, but that makes sense in the context of the medium.

This War Of Mine Game Preview: A Dreadful, Soul-Crushing Experience... In A Good Way

This War of Mine is not a fun game. But it isn't trying to be. While other "realistic" war games will hand you a rifle and tell you to take that beach, Private, in This War of Mine a few scraps of meat is a much more important tool for survival. You control three survivors living in a bombed-out house in the middle of an extremely non-specific war zone, trying to scrape together enough materials to craft their way through the war without starving or freezing.

Needless to say, this is not the kind of game that will appeal to those who like to spend their virtual time jumping through colorful Miyamoto landscapes, this is more like a playable version of your great grandpa's stories about what they had to do to get through the war in the old country.
