Award-winning indie darling GRIS now avilable on the Play Store (Updated)

Back in August of 2019, the gorgeous award-winning platformer GRIS was released on iOS, but at the time, there was no word if or when an Android port would arrive. As of this morning, the game has surprisingly popped up on the Play Store for pre-registration, though there is some text included in the listing that makes me question whether or not Devolver Digital is ready for a public reveal.

Rovio soft-launches Angry Birds Legends in select regions, a card-based RPG devoid of fun

For the last few years, Rovio has really been scraping the bottom of the barrel with its Angry Birds franchise. It would seem the dev has been slapping the property onto just about every casual gaming genre out there, from bubble poppers to match-3 titles, and then right back to bubble poppers, Rovio is clearly out of ideas. This is probably why the company is currently testing Angry Birds Legends in the UK, Sweden, and Finland as we speak. It's a card-based gacha RPG that stars Angry Birds characters, and since it's currently in testing in select regions, I've gone ahead and sideloaded the APK (v2.0.1) in order to take a closer look.

Welcome to Monday, everyone. It had looked like things were finally calming down last week, and then I was greeted with a wall of Android app sales this morning.

This is why I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold, to make discovery easier.

Nvidia GeForce Now gains 8 new titles as it switches to weekly new release schedule

Nvidia's game streaming service has been hit by an exodus of big studios like 2K Games, Bethesda, and Activision Blizzard, but GeForce Now seems to remain insanely popular nevertheless — due to rising demand, you currently can't sign up for it in Europe and some trail Pro accounts have been downgraded. That might be because despite the big studio losses, the game library on the service continues to grow. To make these new releases on the platform more predictable, Nvidia has announced that it wants to add most new games every Thursday going forward.
