[Update: Winners] We Have 25 Codes For Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance For SHIELD Android TV To Give Away Courtesy of NVIDIA

When it comes to iconic video games, there are few that stand out more than the Metal Gear series. I was instantly hooked when I first played Metal Gear Solid, and have been a huge fan of the franchise since. While Solid Snake is basically the character who makes the whole thing, I learned to appreciate and even like Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty (after my initial irritation that the game wasn't playable as Snake). It took me a while to get there, but I finally did.

I was happy to see him get his own game as a cyborg ninja in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, though I never actually got around to playing that title on a traditional console.

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy, An Innovative PS2-Era Adventure Game, Gets A Remastered Release On The Play Store

Back in 2005, video games really wanted to be movies. "Cinematic" was the buzzword of the day, though it usually translated to "a whole lot of cutscenes." Games still haven't quite gotten over their movie crush, but one of the distinct styles of games to emerge from that era was the narrative-focused 3D adventure. These games mixed the traditional inventory puzzles and story-focused dialogue of adventure games with big-budget production and quick-time controls. The works of director David Cage, including games like Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, are the primary examples of the genre.

Google Play Games Logo Appears In Play Store Listings To Indicate Supported Games

The adoption of Google's Play Games collection of APIs and tools has been rapid, and very welcome among Android gamers - it's one of the first things that gets requested when a new title on the Play Store omits it. Now it's a little easier to tell which games support Play Games tools and which ones don't, without having to download them first. Users, including those of us here at Android Police, are starting to see a Play Games logo appear prominently in the Play Store app description of those apps that support the system.

[Bad News Everyone] Futurama: Game Of Drones Is The Worst Kind Of Licensed Mobile Game

Here at Android Police, we monitor a truly insane amount of sites and developers to bring you the latest apps and games fresh from the Play Store. And in serving that duty, sometimes we come across games that don't deserve any attention. More often than not, in fact, and some of the most depressing are games that exploit a beloved TV, movie, or video game license and use it to try and sling the same homogenized crap as ten thousand copycat game developers looking for a quick buck. A lot of these seem to be Candy Crush or Bejeweled clones: we passed over Pac-Man Puzzle Tour just yesterday (Artem literally wrote "ughhhhhh" in the office chat), and Star Trek: Wrath of Gems is such a shameless cash-grab that it makes trekkies spit out their Romulan ale.

Interdimensional First-Person Puzzler 'Parallax' Is Now Available For SHIELD Devices

NVIDIA continues to hog some of the most distinctive games on Android for itself with the release of Parallax for SHIELD devices. It's a little like Portal, but when you go through a "portal" you're in a different dimension where black is white (literally). There are 32 levels of this, and it looks very neat.

TellTale Begins Its Walking Dead: Michonne Mini-Series With Episode 1, Now In The Play Store For $5

Confession: I haven't touched The Walking Dead franchise since the end of season one of the TV show - there's only so much zombie stuff I can handle. But even so, I know that Michonne (pronounced "Miss-shown") is a fan-favorite badass in both the comic books and the show. TellTale Games, always eager to please with its growing collection of licensed episodic adventure games, is giving those fans what they want with a Michonne mini-series. Episode one is available right now in the Play Store.

Michonne is a kick-ass lady who strides through the undead landscape crushing zombie skulls beneath her feet.

Riot Games Releases League Friends, An Official Messaging App For The Mega-Popular League Of Legends PC Game

If you don't know what League of Legends is, then you don't spend enough time on Twitch (which is to say that you spend an entirely appropriate amount of time on Twitch). It's one of the biggest games in the ballooning "MOBA" genre, a combination of multiplayer team-based combat and top-down RPG sensibilities that's thrived on a PC-exclusive, free-to-play model. Thanks to League of Legends' highly competitive and social setup, it's become one of the spectacle events around the new boom in professional-level video game competition.

That being the case, it's easy to see why some of the most obsessive players might want to keep track of their league and other game friends for every second of the day.

French Media Company Vivendi Attempts Hostile Takeover Of Prolific Mobile Publisher Gameloft

Gameloft has been one of the most consistent (if not one of the most respected) game developers since the beginning of the mobile gaming boom, though the company began on consoles. Vivendi, an enormous French media empire with interests in music, movies, video games, and pretty much every other entertainment industry, is attempting a hostile stock takeover of Gameloft, according to Bloomberg. The larger company has already purchased over 30% of Gameloft's stock, and is now offering 6 euros a share for the remaining amount.

Gameloft began humbly, founded in Paris by former executives of Ubisoft. Gameloft was one of the only companies that made high-end games for the old iOS and Windows Mobile platforms.
