You know what games don't have enough of these days? Censored cartoon nudity. Everyone knows it's true. Particularly in the running games category. Sure, we've got secret agents, gingers escaping death, and Pixar heroines, yet all of them are decidedly clothed. Streaker! attempts to remedy this problematic conundrum. In this adventure, you're the other man fleeing the scene from a sordid affair. Did we mention this probably isn't for kids?
Amtrak, aiming to give you a "new way to take the train," released an official app to the Play Store recently.
The (logically named) Amtrak app allows passengers to plan their entire train excursion, from buying tickets (which can be displayed right on your device) to navigating to a nearby station, changing/upgrading seat selections, checking train schedules, and using an Amtrak Guest Rewards account.
"Optimized for Android," the app carries a holo-ish interface with swiping tabs, proper navigation and scrolling, and all the visual flair you may expect from an app in line with Android's design guidelines.
Flight simulator players are something of a different breed. Flight simulation games can require hours of attention to what, for many people, is an extremely tedious (boring), monotonous (boooooring) task. But, the best simulators on the market are so good (realistic) that you can actually use them as part of a professional flight simulator. X-Plane (for the desktop) is that good.
Now, the Android game is no substitute for getting your pilot's license, but Laminar Research, the company that makes the game, promises "85% of the accuracy" of the desktop version.
It's been 25 years since Jaws: The Revenge hit theaters. The movie is unbelievably terrible (if you don't believe me, just ask Rotten Tomatoes, where it's got a rare 0% rating), but surprisingly, a licensed game released two and a half decades later is actually pretty fun. In Jaws Revenge, you take on the role of the titular shark to merrily swim the coastal waters, eating swimmers, divers, fish, seagulls and whatever else you can find.
This edition focuses only on new games. The app roundup is coming up soon.

Clothes are a necessary part of life. It doesn't matter who you are - you have to wear something. Where you choose to buy those clothes, however, is up to you. You can pay full retail at... wherever, or you can choose to be frugal and hit the closeout sites and stores.
When it comes to picking up quality clothes on the cheap, few do it as well as Sierra Trading Post.
I'm not really a big car enthusiast, but there's just something that everyone can appreciate about drifting. Even in games, hitting the curve and sliding it through is a killer feeling, but it's one that even the best of racing games don't put a lot of focus on. That's where Drift Mania Championship 2 changes things - it's all about the drift, baby.
As you can see, not only does this game put you behind the wheel and let you slide all over the place, but it looks fantastic doing so.
Back for day three, Google's 25 Billion Downloads promotion continues to serve up some of Android's most popular apps on the cheap (some of them are actually pretty good this time, too). Check 'em out (link may not be up to date for everyone)
