Recon Instruments Announces A 'Smart Mask' For Paintball Based On Its Android Heads-Up Display

Part of the attraction of things like laser tag and paintball is that they bring the team-based combat that's become so popular in online shooters into the real world. After some notable success with its embedded heads-up display for snowboarders, Recon Instruments (recently acquired by Intel) is bringing a modified version of the Android-based system to the enthusiast paintball market. The Empire EVS "smart mask" includes a tiny Google Glass-style display in the visor that relays various bits of battlefield information to the player.

Ubisoft Publishes WWI Drama Game Valiant Hearts: The Great War For Android And Android TV

Valiant Hearts isn't your usual war game. You won't be blasting through thousands of bad guys like BJ Blazkowitz, you won't be commanding an entire army like an over-the-top Command & Conquer general. Valiant Hearts is incredibly story focused, as it considers itself more of a playable comic book than a video game. It's also about World War I, which hasn't exactly been a popular subject for video games.

This trailer is for the PC and console version, but the mobile version looks very similar.

In the various episodes of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, you'll follow the stories of a German family living in France as the war begins, after which the father is deported and drafted into the German army.

BombSquad Lets 8 Friends Blow Each Other Up In A Gorgeous Multiplayer Mini-Game Collection That Requires Every Gamepad In The House

BombSquad's premise revolves around sticking a large number of friends together in one match and having them blow one another up across numerous battlefields and various mini-games. The title contains a multitude of weapons such as your standard Bomberman-variety circular bomb, sticky ones that adhere themselves to opponents, ice bombs, land mines, TNT, and... boxing gloves. Okay, everything can't explode, but in the end, BombSquad sounds like a blast (pause for groans).

Visually, BombSquad is a treat, but that and the intriguing concept aren't the primary reasons to check out the game. No, that would be the excellent multiplayer options. The game supports up to eight people playing locally at once.

[New App] EA Posts Need For Speed Network Companion App On The Play Store

EA just loves its companion apps, and despite the fact that this one is two behind the release of 2013's Need For Speed Rivals, I'm sure that at least a few racing game fans will appreciate it. Need For Speed Network is a combination social network and second screen app for the aforesaid game, and it's compatible with PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC versions.

Breach And Clear Review: A Thinking Man's Shooter

Turn-based gaming is making a bit of a comeback these days, but such titles can easily end up painfully tedious or just not compelling. Breach and Clear is a top-down shooter that seems to aim for a middle ground. You have to carefully position units, leverage special tactics, and keep track of enemies. However, some of the busywork is taken out of your hands. This game has the potential to scratch a tactical itch in a big way.

Guns And Gameplay

Breach and Clear doesn't bother with an elaborate story, which is fine by me. Your goal in each level is simple – shoot the bad guys.
