Hoping to take full advantage of what we have available now, developer Madfinger Games has released a teaser trailer for their upcoming addition to the Shadowgun franchise: Shadowgun Legends.

For those of you who never played the original game, it is a third-person shooter set in a dystopian future where corporations rule in place of governments.

Apps Sales For January 31, 2013: Shadowgun, Samurai II, Reddit News, And More

When it comes to buying apps, I try to wait until a sale comes along. I usually end up buying things on a whim most of the time anyway, but I try to wait – especially for games and such that may be outside of who much I'm willing to spend on one app. If you're also the type who waits for a good sale to roll around, some pretty decent price drops just hit the Play Store sales floor.

A nice variety of apps there: a couple games, a reddit browser, a barcode scanner/organizer, and a fitness tracker.

[Game Review] Dead Trigger: The Most Fun I've Ever Had Playing An Android Game

Once in a while, an Angry Birds or Temple Run comes along in the mobile gaming sphere. Games that are able to hook you with their simple but endlessly entertaining mechanics, and an ability to immediately "dive in" to the game at any time, even if for just 5 minutes (or 3 hours).
