OnePlus has been making a big deal out of the fact that its newest phones support Fortnite at 90fps, and so the company sent me an OnePlus 8 to put the game through its paces, and then report on my findings. As a seasoned PC gamer who's been playing on a 144Hz monitor for the last few years, I've been eagerly awaiting the day I could explore a high-frame-rate Android game at Android Police, though in the back of my mind I was always worried that mobile wouldn't be able to keep up with demanding frame-rates when gaming. Once you start pushing for the best frame-rates possible, graphics will ultimately have to be toned down, which is precisely the case for Fortnite on the OnePlus 8.

Google's cloud gaming service, Stadia, begins trialing on November 19 — you'll need to buy a $130 Founder's Edition kit to get access — and is expected to expand to the general audience sometime in 2020. So far, 30 games have been announced for the early roster and we expect more of them to pop up as we go along this year. It can be a little hard to keep track of things, so we've got you covered with a handy list of all the titles that have been announced for Stadia.
Welcome to Friday, everyone. Typically the end of the week is the busiest time for sales, and today does not disappoint if you're looking for some quality games. First and foremost, Square Enix is offering Romancing SaGa 2 at a drastic discount, but if classic JRPGs aren't your thing, then perhaps you'll enjoy the fantastically evil puzzler Slayaway Camp. If you prefer action games, then Pixelbite's sci-fi wild west adventure Space Marshals may be more your speed. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 23 temporarily free and 58 on-sale apps and games for the end of the week.
Atari just announced the arrival of Beat Legend: AVICII, and it's described as a rhythm-action experience, so it's essentially a rhythm game. As you would expect, this release contains many of the top tracks from world-renowned DJ and producer Avicii (Tim Bergling), such as Without You, Wake Me Up, and Levels. Better yet, this is a premium release, which means you can purchase Beat Legend: AVICII from the Play Store for $2.99.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. I have a solid list of sales today, including a bunch of board game adaptations from Marmalade Game Studio. On top of this, the quirky arcade simulator Peace, Death is on sale today, along with Hangman Premium, and Beholder. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 30 temporarily free and 51 on-sale apps and games for the middle of the week.
Adult Swim has a followup to its three-year-old gacha game Pocket Mortys, but it's currently in testing, so it's only available in select regions on the Play Store despite just popping up. This game is titled Rick and Morty: Clone Rumble, and much like Pocket Mortys, you'll once again be tasked with collecting characters, but this time around, you'll get to collect a bunch of different personalities from the show (such as Mr. Poopybutthole), instead of cloned Mortys.
Just ahead of the Asus ROG Phone 3 announcement later today, Lenovo has unveiled a rival in the form of its first Legion-branded gaming smartphone. The two Snapdragon 865 Plus devices are set to go head-to-head for mobile gaming supremacy — Lenovo has a few neat tricks up its sleeve including 90W charging, a novel side-mounted pop-up camera, and a 144Hz display.
Almost a year ago, Nintendo released Mario Kart Tour on Android, and the game clearly wasn't ready for prime time since it was missing a boatload of features, such as multiplayer and landscape support. Over the last eleven months, Nintendo has slowly improved the game, adding in a much-requested multiplayer feature this past March. Yesterday, Nintendo tweeted that the mobile kart racer would receive a landscape mode whenever the next update for the game dropped, which landed early this morning as version 2.4.0.
Welcome to Monday, everyone. The beginning of the week typically starts off strong, and so I have a healthy roundup of sales to share today. The biggest standout is the sale for RPG Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, which is currently available for half off. If RPGs aren't your bag, then maybe the horror-adventure game DISTRAINT: Deluxe Edition is more your speed. If you're looking for something a little more casual, then perhaps the roguelike dungeon crawler Heroes of Loot is what you're looking for. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier. So without further ado, here are 29 temporarily free and 56 on-sale apps and games for the start of the week.
