A fresh version of Google Translate hit the Market today. Conversation mode (direct speech to speech translation) now works in 14 languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Polish, Russian and Turkish.  Also new is a personal dictionary, the ability to correct voice input before having it translated, and pinch zoom support for getting a close up of the translated text (Chinese symbols can get surprisingly complicated).

Online game rental service Gamefly pushed an update to its official app today which brings the same social experience to Android phones and tablets that iOS users have had since April of this year. The service allows you to create a profile and connect with other users for online gameplay (through XBox Live, PSN, or WII), follow other gamers to find out what they're playing, comment on others' posts, share content, and seamlessly integrate with Twitter or Facebook.

I want you to take a mental journey with me. Dig deep into your memory banks -- all the way back to 2001. You there? Great. Think, if you will, about the the state of video games. The Playstation 2 was the hottest console on the market (okay, that's debatable) and Grand Theft Auto III was the game to have. Kids loved it as much as parents, teachers, and other authority figures hated it, due to its (then) graphic nature.

Gameloft just pushed the third iteration of its Let's Golf HD series to the Android Market for the low price of free. For those uninitiated with Let's Golf, here's the nuts-and-bolts: you get to play golf in some outrageous places, like outer space or the Great Wall of China. Despite its cartoonish nature, it's quite graphically detailed -- everything from the green to the surrounding details is bright, vivid, and detailed.

It has been about five months since Glu Mobile dropped Contract Killer into the Market, bringing all sorts of awesome first person shooter action along with it. They're back with a new take on the title, throwing a more blood thirsty element to the mix: zombies.

This go around you play the role of Shooter, a killer on a mission to slay as many undead as possible. The gameplay is nearly identical to that of the original Contract Killer, but instead of knocking off people who are out to kill you, you're dropping those who are trying to eat you.

Duke Nukem 3D Home

OK, we don't have much that we can show you yet, but I think the title sends the message. Ass kicking. Bubble gum chewing. Balls of steel. That's right kids, Duke Nukem is headed to Android in all his state-of-the-art-in-1991 3D glory. Don't believe us? We have visual proof (and a press release!):

Duke Nukem 3D Fight Scene

Damn, you're ugly. Probably because you're from an iOS screenshot.

Of course, this port has been out for some time on iOS, but the developer behind it (MachineWorks Northwest) has been hard at work to get the title on Android.

Nothing excites me more than a new app for my poor, neglected tablet. Today, Astro is joining the party with version 3.0 of their venerable file manager. The new Astro sports a completely redesigned UI and icons, and drag and drop support. Look how pretty:

And it still works with all the cool Astro plug-ins, like Bluetooth and SMB networking. You know the drill, Astro is available in the Android Market.

You may remember Leisure Suit Larry - an "adventure game," following a middle-aged man in his pursuit of attractive women, navigating through pixelated environments featuring up to 16 colors.

Replay Games is working on reviving the risqué mid-80s hit, and bringing it to a variety of platforms, including Android.

Replay says that if all goes well with their initial remake, they will look into remaking the rest of the series as well, for a total of seven games, and potentially making direct ports of the originals as well.
