Chromecast support is becoming something of a fashion item: all the cool kids (or at least the cool media-focused Android apps) have it. The latest app to add support for Google's tiny streamer is Flixster, known for its up to date selection of movie trailers and tight integration with sister service Rotten Tomatoes. Notably, Flixster also supports the UltraViolet system, giving users an alternative to VUDU for their digital copy collection.
The Anomaly series has some of the most polished, high-quality games on any mobile platform, and the next entry looks like no exception. While Anomaly: Warzone Earth, Anomaly Korea, and Anomaly 2 were all "tower offense" games (where you control a convoy of tanks and other vehicles being attacked by turrets), Anomaly Defenders goes for the more conventional tower-based approach.
But there's still a twist: this time you're playing for the alien side, fighting back against fascist human invaders.
When a comic book movie hits theaters, you already know a movie tie-in game is on its way. The next Captain America film is scheduled to hit the big screen in roughly two months, so Gameloft and Marvel are teasing their upcoming game with a brief. While its existence hardly qualifies as news, its attractive art style and new gameplay mechanics may be reason to take notice.
The decision to use cel-shaded graphics is a fitting one.
The holidays are a very special time for PC gamers, when they must make lightning decisions based on very little information and/or impulse shopping. Of course I'm talking about the Steam sale, and as awesome as Steam is for cheap games, it's bloody terrible for streaming game videos. This being the case, it's a good thing that the long-overdue GameTrailers app has finally landed on Android, and you don't have to rely on Steam's awful embedded trailers.
Fans of classic beat-em-ups, it's time to get excited. while it's true that there are more than a few entries in this genre available on the Play Store already, almost all of them owe at least some inspiration to the great Double Dragon of arcade fame. DotEmu, no slouch when it comes to breathing new life into classics, is bringing all three of the original games to the Play Store sometime in the near future.
Game developers have launched players into the abyss of space since they first learned how to manipulate pixels, but very few titles offer us the chance to simulate life as a modern day astronaut. Sure, GRAVITY: DON'T LET GO is purely intended to draw interest in the upcoming film Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, but it still offers one of the relatively few chances to float around present day spacecraft that gamers have.
Paradox Interactive, a well-known game publisher and developer, today posted up a promo video for the upcoming ship battling game Leviathan: Warships. If you watch only one video today, let it be this one. Kittens and puppies can wait till tomorrow. I haven't had this much fun watching trailers ever since the unfortunate fireworks accident at the nearby trailer park.
Ultima has been around forever. So it's only appropriate that the series' new mobile push incorporate the fact in its title... even if it is a bit on the nose. Ultima Forever: Quest For The Avatar is an upcoming top-down dungeon crawler set in the familiar Ultima universe, complete with online play and a massive amount of game time. According to a Polygon interview with the game's producer, getting to level 15 will take 200 hours, while getting to the end with everything will take closer to 400.
There's little doubt that Pokémon is the very best at separating parents from money. Like no franchise ever was. Getting Nintendo to relinquish control of content, though, is a real test. It doesn't generally stream its show for free without good cause. Today, however, it's available across the land. The animated series can now be streamed to Android handsets far and wide.
Admittedly Pokémon licensing is something I don't understand, but it's pretty powerful that this app has free episodes inside.
