[Deal Alert] League of Stickman is down to 10 cents or less worldwide

It's been a while since we've had a good Play Store deal worldwide. Lately, they've all been limited to a few European countries and Australia — not even the US or Canada could benefit from many of the 10 cents price drops we've been posting. But today's different.

League of Stickman, the combat adventure game that's become quite popular with its fast-paced fighting moves and beautiful immersive graphics is down on the Play Store to about 10 cents, worldwide. This is the paid version of the game, which normally costs $0.99, but also still comes with IAP, so keep that in mind.

[Update: Gameplay Video] Madfinger unveils Shadowgun Legends, an MMORPG shooter


Mobile gaming has been getting pretty intense in the last few years, due in no small part to increasingly powerful hardware available to shove into phones and tablets. Games like Clash of Clans and Hearthstone have served to push the mobile platform forward into general popularity, something that the rest of us gamers can appreciate. 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.

Latest Mr. Robot episode pokes fun at Android users, security issues

You may have heard of Mr. Robot, an award-winning show about a clinically-depressed cybersecurity engineer hired by "Mr. Robot" to join a group of hacktivists. The latest episode, "eps2.6_succ3ss0r.p12," opens with a discussion between a Nexus owner (Mobley) and an iPhone owner (Trenton). Take a look at the clip:

For context, the terminal window open on Trenton's screen is creating a custom MP4 file with the Stagefright vulnerability. When Mobley is tricked into visiting the page to prove his superiority as an Android user, the infected video file loads on his phone (despite his claims that Chrome on Android has "better HTML5 compliance").

Rescue strategy game EMERGENCY goes free on Android

EMERGENCY came to Android more than 3 years ago in March of 2013. Back then, the Xperia Z was the hottest phone on the block, the Galaxy S4 was starting its pre-orders, and Holo was the coolest design language we could imagine. But EMERGENCY was rather well received thanks to its replay value. With 13 disaster scenarios and 18 units under your command, you could manage your resources differently to try to save as much lives and fight as many terrorists as you could, and thus control the situation better and faster.

The game has seen several updates on Android since its release, though none in the past 8 or so months.

CrossOver for Android runs Windows programs on x86 Android tablets and Chromebooks

If you have ever used Linux, Mac, or another *nix operating system, you've probably heard of Wine. No, not the beverage - it's software that allows Windows programs to run on platforms that aren't Windows. Wine is one of my favorite open-source projects, under development since 1993 and having a massive community of developers and testers. Wine also maintains a database of compatible programs, which should give you an idea of the impressive compatibility.

CrossOver is essentially a commercial version of Wine, offering technical support and easier configuration of programs. Almost three years after development started on CrossOver for Android, CodeWeavers (the company responsible for CrossOver) is finally sharing a working preview on Google Play.

[Update: Now for phones and tablets] Riptide GP: Renegade brings premium jet ski racing to the SHIELD TV, phone and tablet release coming later

Vector Unit has cultivated a reputation as one of the most consistently solid developers on Android, so a new release from them is always a good thing. But when it's a new entry in the Riptide GP series, then it's time to call the boss and tell him you're (cough, cough) "sick." Riptide GP: Renegade is the third installment, and SHIELD Android TV owners can play it right now, only a few days after the PC and console release. A wider mobile release is coming later.

Instead, we've watched the tablet steadily drop down from its original price point of $599.99. Today you can get the device on sale for nearly half the cost at $349.99.

Night Mode Enabler is a simple app that brings back Night Mode and its tile to Android Nougat

The saga of Night Mode on Android is a bit of a dramatic story that started with a sneak peek in Android M, disappeared, returned again in N dev previews, only for our excitement to be short lived as we learned that it might not make it to the final release. And make it, it didn't. With the latest dev previews and Nougat's official release, the signs of Night Mode started disappearing one by one.

But there's hope after all. It seems that Night Mode is still hidden in the System UI Tuner, and all you need is an adb command to unleash it.

[Deal Alert] Up to 66% off many NVIDIA SHIELD titles like MGR: Revengeance and the new Q*Bert Rebooted

Back when I was a student, a long long time ago, "back to school" was end of September or even beginning of October. But summer school vacations here in Lebanon seem to be following the same pattern as the US recently: they're getting shorter and thus school is starting sooner.

I'm not sure why you'd celebrate "back to school" with game discounts though — isn't that counter-productive? Or maybe kids are going to be so taken by their studies that it'd be nice to give them a break on the cheap, especially when playing in the sun becomes less feasible as fall hits.

MIUI 8 Global stable ROM now available for supported devices

MIUI splits opinions among Android users - some say it's great, a welcome refinement of the platform, and some say it's a bit too close for comfort aesthetically to Apple's iOS. Whichever way you see it, you should know that MIUI 8 is now out, with the Global stable ROM available for download over on the MIUI forums for supported devices, which are listed below. The 8th version of the Chinese OS was announced back in May with the Mi Max, which David said was gigantic in his hands-on first impressions.

MIUI 8 seems like an evolution of the Android-based operating system, with new features such as 'scrolling screenshots' and an all-new gallery app.
