In the lead up to registration for I/O 2013, Google wants to make sure everybody is ready for the frenzied ticket grab that is scheduled for March 13th at 7:AM PT. To help prepare hopeful attendees, the company has posted some new details and a few reminders. Like last year, you need both a Google+ account and Google Wallet account to make your purchase. Ticket prices are remaining steady at $900 for general admission and $300 for those that qualify for an academic discount.

Electronic Arts seems to be one of the most disliked game developers on any platform, so it doesn't take much for the internet to rise up in anger against them. The release of Real Racing 3 with its heavy in-app purchases was reason enough to hurl some vitriol at EA. However, the game is free to try and there are a ton of officially licensed cars to drive. So is it really that bad?

There are a lot of Android users that don't much care for buying paid apps. This is doubly true since the old 24-hour return windows was replaced with a comparatively small 15-minute one. A company called Mobiroo seems to think it has the solution: subscribe to an all-you-can-download service for paid apps. It's a little bit like Netflix for apps, and it only costs $2.49 per-month. Of course, that's only a good deal if the service offers apps you actually want.

Everyone's favorite game studio, Electronic Arts, has released the third incarnation of its "hyper-realistic" racing series. Real Racing 3 is in the Play Store, but appears to be available only in certain countries right now. The North American listing isn't working for us, but the international version appears to be functional for at least some folks. Although, considering the bizarre new in-app purchase upsell, maybe you're not missing much.

The Real Racing series makes its name by licensing dozens of authentic cars.

Sometimes game development just doesn't go as planned. New challenges appear, deadlines are pushed back, and entire projects can end up scrapped. In the case of Protoxide: Death Race, it seemed for a long time like it was dead in the water. Now all of a sudden this title has appeared in the Play Store after about a year and a half of waiting. But if you're in the mood for heavily armed hovercraft, look no further.

I'll be honest: I have no idea what's going on in this game. Towelfight 2: The Monocle of Destiny appears to be a pretty basic twin-stick shooter, right up until you notice that your wizened player character is shooting homicidal, spherical animals out of his eye. These critters have powers of their own, including lasers, chainsaws, and explosions. And when you kill enemies, they burst into Batman-style sound effects, which for some reason include "dirigible" and "maple syrup." Also, there's a dog, and you can play fetch with him.

Yeah, high-resolution textures, 3D shaders, dynamic lighting, and all sorts of other stuff are standard in mobile games these days. Infinite is a little bit different, though. This title invites you to journey through a geometric galaxy and build solar systems with dead-simple controls.

Infinite is an arcade-style game with a little dash of physics and a smidgen of style. You have to pick up bits of matter floating around the various stars in your galaxy to build up enough mass to drop a planet.

The Worms games are fabulous turn-based combat experiences that consumed many hours of my formative years. The original Worms was ported to Android a few years ago, but it was riddled with bugs and has since been abandoned by publisher EA. Here's hoping that Worms 2: Armageddon is delivered in better shape when it hits the Play Store this spring.

For the uninitiated, in Worms games you control a team of anthropomorphic worms with the singular goal of eliminating the other team.
