Angry Birds Go Will Be Stuffed With In-App Purchases, Some As High As $100 - Gamers Cry Fowl

The Angry Birds franchise has thus far been on the lighter side of the free-to-play model - the original game launched free and ad-supported on Android, and later versions added small charges for HD versions and a few in-app bonuses like the Mighty Eagle. But it looks like Rovio is pulling out all the stops when it comes to the upcoming kart racer, Angry Birds Go. Pocket Gamer reports that gamers in New Zealand (where the game is getting an early launch on iOS) are finding it positively stuffed with in-app purchases.

[New Game] Gameloft's GT Racing 2 Is Now Available On The Play Store, Because Sony Won't Make Gran Turismo For Android

Gameloft introduced us to GT Racing 2 two months ago with a strange focus on Mercedes-Benz cars, but now the full game is available with a full complement of manufacturers. GT Racing 2 is a free download in the Play Store for devices running Android 2.3 or higher. You'll need just under a gigabyte of free storage to download it (not to mention a decent connection).

GT Racing is Gameloft's take on a racing simulator, a la Gran Turismo or Forza, as opposed to the more cartoony style of Asphalt.

Angry Birds Go Kart Racer Is A Go For December 11th, And The First Gameplay Video Actually Looks Pretty Good

There comes a point in the life of every great gaming franchise where all original gameplay ideas have been exhausted. And right after that point, the developers give up and make a kart racer. For Rovio's omnipresent Angry Birds, the game is Angry Birds Go, a racing game that travels down the same well-trodden path as Mario Kart and a million also-rans. It comes out December 11th.

As cynical as that opening statement is, I have to admit that Angry Birds Go looks like a pretty amazing kart racer.

[New Game] Ubisoft Releases MotoHeroz, A Side Scrolling Racing Platformer Inspired By The Popular WiiWare Original

MotoHeroz first launched as a WiiWare title back in 2011, and it would remain one of the best releases available for the platform. The game is ultimately the product of a side scrolling platformer that bred with a racing game, and the result is a challenging title that combines the look of the former with the physics of the latter. In the end, MotoHeroz is a ride worth taking, and now you can find the keys sitting in the Play Store.

[New Game] Asphalt 8 Launches In Google Play, Brings Fast Cars And In-App Purchases

The newest incarnation of Gameloft's racing franchise, Asphalt 8: Airborne has hit Google Play. In addition to the standard race mechanics, this title will encourage players to pull off high-speed aerial stunts. Yeah, it is not a terribly realistic racing game.

Gameloft is really piling on the pretty with this one. The environments are huge, and there are more reflections and lighting effects than you can shake a gear shift at.

Carmageddon Review: Good Old-Fashioned Mindless Mayhem, But Not For The Faint Of Heart

I was seven years old when Carmageddon first hit store shelves in 1997. Even if the game hadn't been widely banned and censored around the world, I still wouldn't have gotten my hands on it. The off-the-wall violence and bloodshed would have been a bit too much for my parents to permit me to play with good conscience. While leagues of long-time fans poured money into the Kickstarter campaign that allowed Stainless Games to port the game to Android in the first place, I am visiting the game for the first time.

[New Game] The Makers Of Reckless Racing Do Their Best Wipeout Impression With Repulze

The old F-Zero and Wipeout series were some of the fastest, prettiest games of their respective times, so it's no surprise that the niche of "hovercraft racer" has made such a disproportionate impact on the racing genre. PixelBite is no stranger to racing themselves, having developed the Reckless series for Android and iOS. Their latest and most ambitious game is Repulze, a hovercraft racer that pushes the boundaries of both speed and graphics on Android.
