HandyGames has announced today that its tactical spinoff title Rebel Cops is coming to Android sometime in the future. This is the same developer behind the games This Is the Police and its sequel, and while Rebel Cops has been available on Steam since September, it's nice to know a mobile version is in the works. Potential players should expect 15-hours of playtime in this turn-based strategy game, and of course, the gameplay and UI have been optimized for mobile play.
It's always nice to see a well-reviewed console-quality game make its way to Android. This time around, Door Kickers: Action Squad is coming to the Play Store, and you can pre-register for the retro side-scroller right now to be notified when it's available for download.
Slowly but surely, Google is filling in the content gaps in its Stadia game-streaming platform. Last year's release of GRID was a nice addition for fans of racing games, and now Stadia will soon have a few more racing titles: MotoGP20 and Monster Jam Steel Titans.
More people than ever before are stuck at home, which is why we've been highlighting services that offer free movies and TV shows, like Pluto TV and Sling. You may already be familiar with Plex, a service that lets you stream content from your own PC to other devices, but did you know Plex has thousands of TV shows and movies you can watch for free?
While many people seem to have developed an aversion to Stadia, I personally still absolutely love Google's vision for cloud gaming. Sure, a lot of promised features haven't made it into the product yet, but it's slowly coming together. I'm surprised again and again how well it performs, just like others on the Android Police team. If you're not already heavily invested in Xbox, PlayStation, or PC and/or are willing to give a new cloud gaming platform a go, Stadia could be interesting for you. Today only, you can also save $30 on the Premiere Edition of the service, costing you just $99 instead of the usual $129.
The Doom series is among the best-known video games in the world, so it's great to see that Google managed to secure the rights for the latest title in the installment — in fact, this is the game Stadia has been hyping even before the service itself launched. Today, Doom Eternal has finally landed on the platform, along with being released on most other common consoles and stores.
The main promise of Google's Stadia streaming platform is that it's not bound by the limitations of fixed hardware: it can scale to accommodate the demands of the game, instead of the other way around. However, it seems one of 2020's biggest titles will push Stadia to its limits: Doom Eternal.
Stadia has, even its most ardent supporters will tell you, a games problem. It launched with just a handful of titles, and there's been a drip feed of additional releases ever since. Google has pledged to bring more than 120 titles to the platform in 2020, and while a few have been announced, we still have no idea what most of those games are going to be. So here, we've gathered 15 of the games we'd like most like to see on Stadia this year and beyond.
Countless companies have fallen in pursuit of building the perfect cloud gaming service, making the idea seem more like a distant dream than a feasible reality. However, as advancements in connectivity and processing power have reached new heights, the cloud gaming segment may finally be ready for prime time — at least that's what Google and Microsoft are promising. We pitted early iterations of Stadia and Project xCloud against one another to see how they measure up on the way to the cloud gaming revolution.
