Welcome to Friday, everyone. The end of the work-week is finally here, which means it's time once again to check out all of the app and game sales currently available on the Google Play Store.

Mario Kart Tour online multiplayer beta invites everyone to play during its second lap (Update: Out now)

The much-anticipated release of Mario Kart Tour this September (after an extended period of testing) was a bit of a letdown. The game was riddled with excessive in-app-purchases, had a questionable loot box mechanism, and lacked a multiplayer component — arguably the selling point of the entire Mario Kart series. At the time, the in-game-menu said that multiplayer was "inbound", and we now know more details.

Microsoft’s xCloud game streaming beta comes to Canada on January 29 (Update)

Google hasn't announced Stadia in a vacuum; game streaming services have been in the works for years, with varying degrees of success. The technology to provide virtually lag-free, high-end graphics over miles of cables and Wi-Fi networks has only recently become robust enough. Thus, it comes as no surprise that Microsoft on Tuesday announced the public preview of its own remote gaming service xCloud, available starting next month.

Good ol' Tetris comes back officially to the Play Store, simpler and better than ever

Shortly after the disappearance of EA's Tetris titles on the Play Store, the new mobile Tetris license holder N3twork has published a classic alternative. In contrast to its Tetris Royale that adds a 100-player mode and daily challenges to the classic game, the brand-new Tetris is as barebones as it gets.

Grand Mountain Adventure’s huge snowboarding overhaul lands today (Update)

A year ago, I wrote about the preview build for Grand Mountain Adventure, a gorgeous skiing game that most definitely deserved the attention. In March of this year, the game was officially launched on the Google Play Store and has so far amassed over 300,000 downloads with a solid 4.4-star rating. Suffice to say it's a quality release, and over the previous weekend, one of the developers created a post on Reddit that outlined an upcoming update that will add in snowboarding, twin-tip skiing, and maybe even a few new mountains.

EA ending support for its Tetris games in April

Almost a decade ago (!) in 2011, EA released Tetris for mobile devices, following it with Tetris Blitz in 2013. Being the only way to play "official" Tetris on your phone, the two apps have been extremely popular for fans of the classic brick-stacker game. Unfortunately, EA is ending its run with Tetris and will be abandoning the games in April.

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is a new collection-based strategy RPG that's coming to Android this summer, and it's already available on the Play Store for pre-registration. Player's will take command of the Night's Watch to defend Westeros by collecting notable characters that will be useful in the game's strategic battles. The story takes place a few decades before the timeline of the books and TV show, which means this upcoming release will serve as a prequel of sorts.

G.I. Joe: War On Cobra is the latest collection-based strategy game to arrive on the Play Store (Update)

D3 Go! has announced today that its next mobile game is called G.I. Joe: War On Cobra, and it will be officially launched on Android on January 20th. The title is already available for pre-registration on the Play Store, and for the most part, it would seem that this will exist as a branded release that contains the same amalgamation of gameplay mobile gaming is best known for. So if you're looking to play yet another gacha game that's betting on '80s nostalgia to get people interested in a title built around the same shallow card-based strategy mechanics we've all experienced over and over again, I suppose G.I.
