Frozen Synapse Prime Brings Deep Tactical Gameplay From The PS Vita To Android

Tactical military strategy and RPGs make a natural fit for mobile platforms, especially tablets, thanks to a top-down battlefield and gameplay that's helped along by precision movement. Android already has a small but impressive collection of tactical strategy options, including notable PC/console games like XCOM and more niche options like Ambition of the Slimes.

Crescent Moon's Sci-Fi Shooter EXILES Graduates From The Humble Bundle To The Play Store, Available Now For $7

Slowly, ever so slowly, mobile platforms are approaching "console quality" for high-end games. Given that this is a pretty nebulous term in and of itself, I'd say that in fact developers' skills in adapting the big-screen experience to touchscreen controls and using the limited resources available on mobile hardware to the fullest are much more important than any graphical upgrade. But enough rambling: EXILES, a new 3D sci-fi shooter from publisher Crescent Moon Games, is now on the Play Store.

The Rufus Cuff Is A Wrist Communicator From The Future That Looks Like Something From The Past

The Rufus Cuff isn't some dinky little bracelet with a tiny processor and a fuzzy LCD watch face, claiming that it's somehow "smart." This Android-powered accessory has higher ambitions. The mere act of strapping it on will take wearers one step closer to becoming a Power Ranger or the pilot of their own Enterprise class starship. Owning one won't make you cool, it will make you powerful.

This cuff still pairs up with your Android device like those other smartwatches out there, but it comes with an LCD screen large enough to handle plenty of tasks on its own.

Out There Review: I've Never Been So Happy To Be So Perilously Close To Death

If there's one thing I can say for Out There, it's that this title does not sugar coat the harsh reality of space. Things go wrong that are totally out of your control, and sometimes that means you're going to die. If that was literally the only thing I had to say, this game would be pretty lame. In fact, there's a lot going on in Out There. This is a sci-fi choose-your-own-adventure game that doesn't fall back on laser blasters and explosions to create tension – it's all about survival.

[New Game] Line Of Defense Tactics, A Real-Time Strategy Game Spawned From An MMO, Launches For Android And Other Platforms

If we've learned anything from World of Warcraft, it's that strategy games and MMOs go hand in hand. Blizzard's role-playing game has been consuming lives for over a decade now, but it began as an RTS that was arguably every bit as engrossing. Line of Defense is taking a different approach. This MMO has now spawned a tactics game available for Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, and, yes, Android - all on the same day.

Amazon Is Preparing Flying 'Prime Air' Drones To Deliver Packages In 30 Minutes Or Less

We almost certainly won't have hoverboards or flying DeLoreans in 2015, but Amazon is aiming to give us the next best thing: crazy-fast package delivery via flying drones. Yes, people, welcome to the future. Though there are obvious hurdles to overcome before these autonomous delivery robots become a reality, Amazon hopes that one day, "Prime Air vehicles will be as normal as seeing mail trucks on the road today."

Eccentric Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced the Prime Air plans on the December 1st episode of 60 Minutes.

[New Game] Spaceteam: The Multiplayer Star Trek Shouting Simulator Endorsed By His HOLOness Matias Duarte

Remember that one Star Trek space battle scene? You know, the one where the captain is wiggling around in his chair while the camera shakes, and all the bridge officers are shouting things at him? "Hull breaches on decks five through eight!" "Reversing the shield polarity, sir!" "We're running low on self-sealing stem bolts!" You know.... every Star Trek space battle scene? Now there's an Android game that captures the feel of a space battle from the perspective of the shouting bridge crew.
