Hey you! Take a break from dragon slaying for a moment and install this live wallpaper.

Nvidia has created this Skyrim live wallpaper, in case you somehow forget during the day you would rather be at home parked in front of your computer.

This picture isn't entirely accurate, when you get it on a real device, there's snowfall and rolling fog. Other than that, there isn't much to it. The foreground and background are on different layers, so they scroll at different speeds when you switch screens.

The endless teasing continues.

Verizon has posted the Galaxy Nexus version of their hideous visual voice mail app, despite having no way to, you know, actually use it. You can pay $2.99 a month for the privilege of using ...this:

Why was this even made? Ice Cream Sandwich has APIs for integrated visual voicemail, carrier crapware like this is no longer needed. Get with the program, Verizon.

I'm sure those with cash to burn and a blind spot for aesthetics will appreciate this when it is finally able to be used, which right now is looking like sometime around 2054.

If there's one thing we love here at Android Police more than anything, it's puppies. That usually doesn't come into play here, though, so we often deal with our very close second favorite thing: Amazingly playable, gorgeously rendered, ingeniously designed games. I just so happen to have one of those right here.

Inertia Escape Velocity is a game in which you play a futuristic scavenger collecting what I can only assume are generic, mass produced future-machine parts.

Built using Unreal Engine 3, Da Vinci THD is the first full game to appear for Tegra 3 devices, and seems to be packing some serious online FPS gameplay. The game is set during the Renaissance, just after Da Vinci's death, when "heroes of [the] Renaissance" begin battling to capture a mysterious machine created by the famed inventor and artist. The real story, though, is Da Vinci's gameplay.

Players can explore beautifully crafted environments, and utilize powerful weapons while battling with (or against) other players online.

Those who just can't get enough /r/Android in their daily life have probably heard of an app called BaconReader - a Reddit client for Android devices. We spent some time with the alpha of the app back in April, and the app has came a long way since then. It's progressed so much, in fact, that it was recently acquired by OneLouder Apps, the dev team behind some awesome apps like FriendCaster, TweetCaster, and ChannelCaster.

Foxit Mobile PDF is available in the Android Market for $2.99, and it aims to make a more pleasurable experience of PDF viewing on mobile devices (because, let's face it, the current experience sucks).

Update 2: Looks like the kinks have been worked out, and it's now available on the Galaxy Tab 10.1.

We first told you about Zen Pinball THD back in May, and it finally landed in the Android Market just a bit ago. I got the opportunity to test out the APK a few weeks ago, and I can assure you, it was well worth the wait. This is probably the single best pinball game that I've played on any device - the graphics are great, the tables are fantastic, and the overall feel of the game is absolutely stellar.

To be a bit more specific, the app allows users to create shipping labels, access their FedEx address book, get rate quotes, receive shipping notifications, find FedEx locations, and provide mobile feedback to FedEx. Users can even nickname shipments and add notes, essentially covering all the bases when it comes to creating and managing shipments.

Looking to replace one more of your belongings with your Android device, Time Warner Cable has released an official app, aptly named TWC TV, which allows your Android tablet to become a remote control, and manage your DVR.

Besides controlling your television from anywhere in the house, TWC's app can show you an interactive programming guide (including listings for up to 7 days), view a filtered program guide (which can display favorite channels or HD channels), search for programming, or schedule upcoming DVR recordings.

HyperDevBox, the publisher of Spectral Souls, which previously wowed us with both the price sticker ($15) and the size of its creation (1GB) topped its own record today with the release of a new game. Generation Of Chaos, which the company dubbed the first massive strategy RPG for Android, nearly doubles the space requirements - you will need over 1.8GB to complete the installation process. That "massive" part gained a whole second meaning there, didn't it?
