Need for Speed VR for Google Daydream is now live

Google trotted out a number of new Daydream titles the other day, one of which was supposed to be Need for Speed VR. However, the actual release of the game lagged behind all the others. Now, it's available, and the price is a little lower than what Google originally quoted. It's not cheap, but for $15 it's probably the most ambitious Daydream game yet.

Pokémon GO players have been salivating at the notion of gen 2 monsters showing up in the game, but the holiday update isn't quite so grand. Okay, it's a lot less grand. There are a handful new Pokémon, which can only be hatched from eggs. Oh, and Pikachu has a new hat.

My Horse Prince is a weird dating simulator about an anime girl and the horse-boy she loves

The dating simulator genre has some strange entries - which is to be expected, since it has a lot of DNA from the anime-inspired visual novel. For example, earlier this year we covered Hatoful Boyfriend, in which a human high school girl is courted by various pigeons. But My Horse Prince probably takes the cake: it tells the story of a girl who loves a horse. And not in that generically feminine, "I want a pony for Christmas" kind of way - she really loves him. Also, he has a human teenager's face for some reason.

Yeah, this is one of those games.

Rockstar's Bully: Anniversary Edition now available for Android, costs $6.99 on the Play Store

Rockstar's 'Bully' was originally released in 2006 for the PlayStation 2, centered around 15 year-old Jimmy Hopkins as he tries to rise through the ranks of the corrupt Bullworth Academy prep school. It generally received good reviews, and two years later, the Scholarship Edition was released for the Wii, Xbox 360, and PC.

Ten years after the game's original release, Rockstar has partnered with War Drum Studios to release Bully: Anniversary Edition for Android and iOS. War Drum Studios has been responsible for every Rockstar mobile port, including the Grand Theft Auto titles, so you know this isn't a shoddy re-release.
