That Pokémon MOBA all your friends are playing on Switch lands on Android next month

That Pokémon MOBA all your friends are playing on Switch lands on Android next month

The last we heard about the mobile version of Pokémon UNITE was back in June when The Pokémon Company and TiMi Studio Group announced the MOBA would land sometime in September but failed to provide an actual date. This left both companies open to execute another announcement, which was made today during the latest Pokémon Presents. As of this morning, we now know Pokémon UNITE will be released on Android and iOS on September 22nd, and better yet, pre-registration is finally open on the Play Store, clearly illustrating the ramp-up to next month's launch.

Mega Man X blasts his way onto Android in the latest chapter of the classic platforming series

Mega Man X blasts his way onto Android in the latest chapter of the classic platforming series

We first learned about the existence of Mega Man X DiVe, thanks to a beta test back in 2019. Little was known about the game at the time, but this shooter was eventually released in Asia in 2020, revealing everything we needed to know about this free-to-play gacha game. Well, it would seem Mega Man X DiVe has been successful enough to warrant an English translation for the West, and so Mega Man X DiVe has been available in pre-registration since last month. Despite the fact the developer never bothered to offer a release date for the West, it would appear today is the day, though you'll have to wait until 10 AM EDT for the servers to go live.

10 of the best offline Android games to play when there's no internet

One of the more significant complaints about mobile games is that many can't be played offline. Not only is this detrimental to those who commute frequently, but it also means you can't play your games when your internet goes out. This is why I've rounded up 10 of my favorite titles to play when my home network goes down, all games that you can indeed play offline in 2021. So if you're looking for a console-quality game to sink your teeth into that doesn't rely on a constant internet connection, this is the roundup for you.

The latest attempt to build an Android gaming console has one big problem

The latest attempt to build an Android gaming console has one big problem

GPD has been making waves over the last few years manufacturing dedicated handheld gaming devices, and so it has made a name for itself with products like the GPD WIN. Typically these handhelds are Windows-based, but thanks to a recent channel addition on GPD's Discord, we now know the company has plans to release a new Android-based device called the GPD-XP. What's odd is that this handheld offers a screen that contains a pinhole camera in the lower-left corner along with curved screen corners, features that look more like leftovers of repurposed phone screens instead of something designed with handheld gaming in mind.

Chromebooks are getting better keyboard and mouse support in games with this new change

Chromebooks are getting better keyboard and mouse support in games with this new change

Many of us have been working from home for a long time now, and if you've got a stressful job, it's vital to take time relaxing and winding down after work. With the vast catalog of apps now available for Chromebooks thanks to the Play Store, it's easier than ever to get hooked on addictive games like PUBG or Among Us. But despite Google's efforts to optimize Android on Chrome OS, a lot of games are still incompatible with keyboard and mouse input — simply because the developers built them for phones and tablets. So if your Chromebook lacks a touchscreen, you've been out of luck.
