Carmageddon was a smash-hit in the late 90's (mostly because of its extensive banning and censoring around the world), though my introduction to the game, sadly, was the god-awful Nintendo 64 port released in 2000. But now, a day earlier than promised, Carmageddon has debuted on Android as a result of the Kickstarter campaign. Update: The game actually went live on time - Australian time.

And, as promised by that campaign, the game is absolutely 100% free for the next 24 hours.

To be perfectly honest, I'm not much of an e-mag guy. I tried Google Currents for a while, but never quite saw the utility of it, and so quickly transitioned back to my beloved Feedly and Google Reader. That's not to say I haven't realized the limitations of RSS many times, though, especially as certain websites I follow look to integrate more multimedia into articles. (Having to use Chrome to listen to audio or video in a weird custom player is really frustrating.) And concededly, apps like Currents look a thousand times better than feeds, which are traditionally text-heavy.

Back in February, TestFlight announced that it would be bringing its services to Android in the form of a private beta, having already served over 300,000 apps on iOS. Today, though, TestFlight has announced that it is ready to lift the private beta, opening beta Android compatibility to all users. TestFlight says that during its 45-day beta period, 5000 developers uploaded over 4500 apps.

The service, for those unfamiliar, is a widely popular beta testing platform, allowing developers to quickly and smoothly deploy beta apps to select users.

We first caught a glimpse of Gameloft's Team Fortress 2 clone Blitz Brigade back in late January. If you've been chomping at the bit to get in on the action since then, the day has finally arrived: BB is now live in the Play Store.

The game was only published this morning, but it already has an unprecedented 450+ (mostly positive) ratings in the store – a true testament to the excitement surrounding the title.

We've come across a pretty decent bundle of apps and games with less-than-normal price tags today. Since you probably already understand what this post is all about, let's cut the fluff and get right into it, shall we?

Update: We've been adding new sales since the post went up towards the bottom of the post.

As always, we'll update if we find more, so check back if you like to save money.

When it comes to Twitter clients on Android, Falcon Pro is hard to beat. It's fast, functional, and dang pretty to look at. Aside from that, though, it's also very well-supported, as the dev is constantly adding new features or fixing bugs.

Today's update is no different, as it brings a handful of new customizations to the client, including a "sexy" new font and the option to move the action bar to the bottom:

#v1.9 - 09/05/2013
- New : sexy font (still Roboto based)
- New : position holding in Lists
- New : load up to 1000 tweets / refresh
- New : option to set the action bar on the bottom.

Guys, stop talking about the Ouya for a second. Bluestacks has a different console it would like you to pay attention to: GamePop. The company that has previously worked on interoperability between Android software and other platforms, is now launching a console of its own. The hardware—including a console and physical controller—will be entirely free for people who pre-order. The catch? You have to pay for a subscription to play games.

I may have just heard about focus- and relaxation-inducing music site Focus@Will, but that hasn't stopped me from already falling in love with it. For much of my stare-at-a-screen-all-day career, I've actually wanted a service like this, and even have a few stations on Pandora and Spotify that almost mimic the service. Now that I've found F@W, though, those stations are essentially defunct.

What is Focus@Will?

That's probably the biggest question on your mind right now.

Leisure Suit Larry fans, get ready to once again return to Lefty's Bar. Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded, a remake of the original game in the series, is easing its way into the Play Store on May 31st. Replay Games has completed the HD makeover using the funds from its successful 2012 Kickstarter campaign, which exceeded their original $500,000 goal by over $150,000.

For those of you who have never met Larry Laffer before, he's a 40 year-old virgin "still untouched by human hands," as the game puts it.

As the start of Google I/O 2013 grows achingly close, Mountain View has seen fit to grace us with a pretty significant update of the official Google I/O app for this year's conference. For anyone attending the event, this app is going to be their golden ticket. The app should work on most Android form-factors (2.3 Gingerbread or higher), with a killer card-based UI that's consistent with Google's new design aesthetic.
