Right around the end of last month, we found a new social game by Disney, and to be completely honest, I didn't think it would be that spectacular. This game, of course, is Pirates of the Caribbean: Master of the Seas. Not only is it extremely popular, but it is also oddly addictive. Something about games like this really draw people in and keeps them coming back for more.

First Things First

First off, it should be noted that Master of the Seas is more closely related to the social games you'd find on Facebook than anything else.

With just weeks remaining until Super Bowl XLVI, EA decided to bring out the head coach in all of us by dropping the price of Madden NFL 12 in the Android Market to just $0.99 for a "limited time."

The game is sure to please even the most hardcore of football fans, offering features like sharp, realistic gameplay and clean graphics; a full roster of NFL teams to choose from, and multiple modes of gameplay.

Nvidia's CES press conference featured a few people playing Shadowgun together, which was a little puzzling, because currently that's impossible. It turns out they were showing off a new version: Shadowgun: Deadzone. The cool new thing about Deadzone, if you haven't guessed by now, is multiplayer support.

Deadzone is bringing all kinds of bells and whistles to the Shadowgun series. It supports 8 player online multiplayer, gamepads, and voice chat.

For those unwilling to sacrifice the latest hardware (and software) for the rather dated Sony Xperia Play's convenient physical game controls, Gametel has introduced a Bluetooth controller with a familiar button layout that will accommodate just about any Android-powered phone. Even better, the Bluetooth controller has its own battery, charged via micro USB.

Gametel says that the controller is already compatible with over 200 games, and phones powered by Ice Cream Sandwich can make effective use of built-in controller APIs.

Adreno Graphics, a division within Qualcomm, has just released Snapdragon GameCommand, a new game management and discovery app. Originally, GameCommand was supposed to be released on January 10th at CES, but it looks like someone pulled the trigger early.

Update by Artem: This app is much like NVIDIA's Tegra Zone, and while the content it features isn't exclusive to Snapdragons, it looks like it does require a device with one.
