Blizzard has been blowing GPAs, sinking careers, and ruining marriages with World of Warcraft for over a decade now. It's an enviable achievement. Though the biggest MMO game in the world has declined in recent years, the latest expansion hopes to add enough new and interesting content to bring old players back and maybe even snag a few new ones. One of the biggest new features is support for an official companion app, so addicts no longer need to rely on a PC to get their WoW fix. Read More

Less than two weeks after the Pokémon Appraisal feature was added to the (declining in popularity) Pokémon GO, the Pokémon GO Development Team has announced a new upcoming feature—Buddy Pokémon. This addition will also enable players to earn more rewards. Read More
It's been a while since we've had a good Play Store deal worldwide. Lately, they've all been limited to a few European countries and Australia — not even the US or Canada could benefit from many of the 10 cents price drops we've been posting. But today's different.
League of Stickman, the combat adventure game that's become quite popular with its fast-paced fighting moves and beautiful immersive graphics is down on the Play Store to about 10 cents, worldwide. This is the paid version of the game, which normally costs $0.99, but also still comes with IAP, so keep that in mind. Read More
USA Network's Mr. Robot is all the rage among tech fans, and not just because it's probably the most faithful depiction of real-world hackers ever to hit primetime. The drama surrounding a gigantic, omnipresent, all-knowing international tech company that has access to every part of the digital world has some disturbing parallels in real life. (Cough, cough.) If you can't wait for the next episode to land in your Android TV queue, there's a new game on the Play Store to check out... and it's made by TellTale, fan-favorite developers of story-focused adventure games.

The Tony Hawk series might be the King of skateboarding games, but that doesn't mean there can't be other viable contenders for the title. True Skate, currently available for $0.10 in many countries (but not in the US), is one such game, and by the looks of it does a damn good job.
True Skate is the official 'Street League Skateboarding' video game, which a bit of Googling tells me is an international competitive skateboarding series. For True Skate to have these credentials is a pretty big indicator of its quality (or at least potential quality) and should inspire confidence if you are a skateboarding fan. Read More
10 cents can go a long way these days on the Play Store. In recent times, you've been able to grab some cool games and apps for this sum — maybe a bit more or a bit less depending on your country — but the discounts have been heavily skewing toward select regions: UK, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Australia, Russia, and sometimes the US and Canada and a few other countries joined in on the fun.
This deal though seems to be better in every way. One, it appears to be worldwide: I've checked dozens of countries around the world and they're all showing the game as discounted. Read More
It's monday already and even though the week has barely started, the stress of work and life might already be taking a toll on you. If you're looking for a way to unwind, there's a sweet and beautiful zen puzzler waiting for you in the Play Store and at a super cheap price too. After all, I wouldn't dare stress you further by making you pay a lot of money.
Zenge, which is only a couple of months old, tells the story of a lonely journeyman Eon through different puzzles that you have to put together piece by piece and in the correct order. Read More
What if virtual reality was just reality, with a small asterisk? What if you could strap on your VR headset, regardless of the brand or technology behind it, and see the same thing that's in front of you... but mirrored? Or upside down? Or delayed by 2 seconds? Ha, what a novel idea!
VR Party Game does just that. It's a Cardboard app/game that transmits your smartphone's rear camera view onto the screen, but applies one of three special effects to confuse you. It can delay the view by 2 seconds, mirror it, or flip it upside down. The idea is to use it as a party game with friends, asking each other to complete a few tasks while wearing the Cardboard headset. Read More
Match-three games are inherently derivative at this point - there's only so much spin you can put on a genre so played-out that even your grandma is probably getting a bit bored swapping kitty cats for lollipops in a landscape best described as the pink-and-yellow paletted fever dream of a six-year-old. But if you're looking for yet another match-three indulgence that sits in at least one of the more desirable mid-outer circles of hell, you might enjoy the latest take on the genre from one of its earliest innovators, Pop Cap, in the form of Bejeweled Stars.
Bejeweled Stars is, essentially, insane. Read More
Toby: The Secret Mine is a relatively new indie game inspired by Limbo. The similarity is immediately apparent. Both are 2D platformers. Both embrace heavy use of silhouettes.
But as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and we welcome more admirers making their way into the Play Store. Read More
