Forza Street first look: A generic racer by any other name (Update: Out now)

Forza Street first look: A generic racer by any other name (Update: Out now)

Samsung held its annual Unpacked event yesterday, revealing a plethora of products, such as the new S20 line of phones. In an effort to make these phones look appealing to gamers, Samsung also announced that Microsoft's racer Forza Street will come to the Galaxy Store this spring as a free-to-play release. Of course, the game is already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store, and seeing that I'm an extremely impatient person, I've sideloaded the APK (V29.0.9) to take the title for a spin to see exactly what it has to offer.

How to get 30 free classic Gameloft games for Android in a single app

How to get 30 free classic Gameloft games for Android in a single app

If you've been nostalgic for a round of Block Breaker Deluxe or a trip to the world of Gangstars 2, you're in luck: everyone's sometimes-favorite mobile game developer finally heard you. Gameloft's roots, creating quality clones that aren't filled with in-app purchases, were long a reason for the popularity of the company's titles, and its newest release fully embraces that beloved (if slightly cringe-y) tradition. In celebration of twenty years in the industry (and some questionable lifting of ideas), Gameloft has released a game collection app called Gameloft Classics: 20 Years. It brings with it a total of 30 classic games, but be warned, these titles are from the flip phone era, and so the titles currently available only cover Gameloft's earliest releases.

Mario Kart Tour's online multiplayer will officially land on March 8 (Update: Out now)

Mario Kart Tour's online multiplayer will officially land on March 8 (Update: Out now)

It's official, Nintendo has tweeted the arrival date for Mario Kart Tour's long-awaited addition of online multiplayer. Back when the game first landed on Android in September of 2019, it was clear the lack of a true online multiplayer mode held the game back. Two months later, Nintendo released a limited online multiplayer beta for subscription members to test, and then a second beta took place at the end of this past January, and this one was open to the public. Well, now that fans and the general public alike have adequately tested the upcoming multiplayer mode, it's now clear that we can expect the official arrival of Mario Kart Tour's online multiplayer on March 8th.

Plants vs. Zombies 3 leaves pre-alpha testing, enters soft launch in select territories

Plants vs. Zombies 3 leaves pre-alpha testing, enters soft launch in select territories

Electronic Arts recently revealed that Plants vs. Zombies 3 has finally left its pre-alpha testing phase and has now entered into a soft-launch release cycle for select territories, and the Philippines is the first country to gain access. More countries will be added to the soft launch list in the future, though EA is still tight-lipped about any sort of expected time frame, and so the development of Plants vs. Zombies 3 will continue to trudge along during this technical testing phase.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is available for download a day early, but you can't play it yet (Update: Out now)

Square Enix has revealed this morning that its mobile RPG Dragon Quest of the Stars is officially available on the Google Play Store for pre-download. We last heard about Dragon Quest of the Stars back in January when Square announced that the title was available for pre-registration and that it would be officially released on February 25th. Well, clearly today isn't the 25th, but you can indeed install Dragon Quest of the Stars a day early if you'd like to prepare for tomorrow's release.

Shadowgun War Games shoots its way onto the Play Store, still feels like a beta

Shadowgun War Games shoots its way onto the Play Store, still feels like a beta

Back in November of 2019, Madfinger's competitive first-person shooter Shadowgun War Games arrived on the Play Store for pre-registration. At the tail end of January, we learned the game would be officially released on February 12th, though it would appear Madfinger hit a few snags yesterday, and so the game was released late in the day, which is probably why the official PR didn't go out until this morning. Still, Shadowgun War Games is now officially available for all to enjoy, though it currently feels unfinished despite the presence of multiple subscription passes.

Cookies Must Die is a free-to-play platformer that's actually worth playing

Cookies Must Die is a free-to-play platformer that's actually worth playing

Cookies Must Die is the latest release from Rebel Twins, the creators of Daddy Was A Thief, Aliens Drive Me Crazy, and most notably, Dragon Hills. As expected, Cookies Must Die offers a zany story, beautiful 2D art, and quality controls, though this is a free-to-play release, so the title's monetization isn't the best, but it is at least reasonably tolerable thanks to title's polished gameplay.

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall hands on: Yet another F2P strategy game ruined by greedy monetization

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall hands on: Yet another F2P strategy game ruined by greedy monetization

Game of Thrones Beyond the Wall is an upcoming mobile strategy game that clearly contains a Game of Thrones skin, and it recently entered into a beta testing phase in Australia and New Zealand. Luckily, this beta also appears to be accessible to the US, so I've installed the game so that I can go hands-on with the title to report on exactly what it has to offer.

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Dragon Quest of the Stars is coming to the West (Update: Pre-reg now available, official release Feb. 25)

Square Enix just announced that its free-to-play role-playing game Dragon Quest of the Stars will come to the West in early 2020. On top of this announcement, the developer has stated that starting today mobile gamers in select regions can register to participate in a closed beta test for the Android version of the game. Supposedly this is a "critically acclaimed" title in Japan that's racked up over 20-million installs, though, from the looks of it, the game is a casual RPG with a popular brand slapped on top.
