2K's New Shooter Battleborn Comes To Android As A Disappointing 2D 'Clicker' Game

Right now mega-publisher 2K is in full promotion mode trying to get people to play Battleborn. It's a brand new shooter from (at least some of) the makers of the hugely popular Borderlands, and it attempts to blend conventional pew-pew gameplay with the variety and marketability of the MOBA genre. As part of this push the company has published Battleborn Tap, a mobile game that is neither a MOBA nor a shooter. Instead, it's underwhelming.

The Play Store Now Shows Delta Update Size When An App Update Is Available

Google added support for delta app updates ages ago to save you from re-downloading an entire app every time there's an update. That's all well and good, but the process hasn't been very transparent. Now, it looks like the Play Store has started showing the size of an update rather than the full app size.

Miitomo Crosses 10 Million Users, Nintendo Announces 10 Day Promo And Two New Mobile Games

During its earning call last night, Nintendo announced that Miitomo has had 10 million users since its release in March, with 20 million 'Miifotos' created and 300 million conversations started. To celebrate reaching the 10 million mark, the company has announced a 10-day promotional period, lasting from April 29 till May 8. There's no word on what this will involve, but I wouldn't be surprised if users can win exclusive, limited-edition clothes for their Mii, or something of that ilk.

The Japanese game company also announced two new mobile games to build on the success of Miitomo. One game is based on the Fire Emblem series, while the other is based on Animal Crossing. Nintendo has not provided names for these games just yet, but says they are planned for release this fall. According to Nintendo's PR release, the Fire Emblem game will be 'more accessible' than the franchise's games for dedicated gaming consoles, while the Animal Crossing game will link in to games on Nintendo's game consoles, such as the Wii or the 3DS.

Minecraft isn't the first game you think about when you hear the word "immersion." No, it's the first one you think of when you hear "surprisingly popular," or "construction-based," or "Notch made more money than Solomon's divorce lawyer." But even so, it's been tied to the new virtual reality trend more than once, most notably thanks to new owner Microsoft's HoloLens platform. That said, a little platform competition isn't going to keep them from making ungodly amounts of money, so check out Minecraft for Samsung's Gear VR headsets.

Federal Judge Finds Amazon Was At Fault When It Billed Parents For In-App Purchases Made By Kids

Here's a bit of a blast from the past. A federal judge has decided that Amazon was in the wrong when it billed parents for in-app purchases made by their kids on its Appstore platform. Both Apple and Google settled this case with the Federal Trade Commission two years ago, but Amazon wanted its day in court. It didn't go so well.
