Arnold Schwarzenegger is no stranger to the mobile gaming scene. Two years ago he starred in a Super Bowl commercial for the now popular strategy game Mobile Strike. Schwarzenegger also had his likeness appear in a Glu developed movie tie-in game. Disappointingly, these experiences must have been just the taste he needed of our sweet, sweet in-app purchase fueled market, as there is now a new mobile game bearing his likeness. It is titled Terminator Genisys: Future War, and it is the latest stab at cashing in on the Terminator franchise. Read More
Terminator Genisys: Revolution is coming to theaters July 1st, but what caught our attention about this movie was the ability to pre-register the accompanying Android game in the Play Store. If you did so, then you may have already received a notification informing you of what I'm about to say—Terminator Genisys: Revolution (the game) is now available for download.
This is a game by Glu Mobile, which could be enough to put you on edge. There will be in-app purchases. There will be in-game currency. At some point, the publisher hopes you will spend money on its free game.
But we've gotten used to the song and dance by this point. Read More
If you're looking forward to the next Terminator game, get in line – literally. The Play Store now allows customers to Pre-register for certain apps and games. The first title to receive this honor is Terminator Genisys: Revolution by Glu Mobile. No price or release date is listed on the app page, but the game will probably become available around the same time as the movie, which hits theaters on July 1st.
First seen in a teardown of the Play Store, Google is now allowing select publishers to put their apps and games for "pre-registration" before they are ready for sale. Read More
A pair of images circulated around the tech blogosphere this morning, showing what are purported to be the first glimpses of Motorola's now legendary Olympus, aka "Terminator", device. The Tegra 2 handset appears to take plenty of design cues from the newly-reviewed Defy, matching the rugged phone's rounded corners and flush capacitive buttons.
This is quite the departure from the unashamedly square design of Motorola's previous Droid iterations, but bears striking resemblance to a certain Nexus S. Both also share an uncanny likeness with the iPhone 4, but the less said about that the better.
The Olympus differs from the Defy with its shortened volume keys and protuberant sides
From the image it can be inferred that the device is probably in the 4" range, has a front-facing camera, and a fairly slim looking waist-line. Read More
Was John Connor right? Are robots going to be our downfall? Terminators? Androids? Andronators?
At Google's Developer Show in Tokyo, something that might just be one of the coolest Android creations ever was demonstrated - a real, moving Google Android logo. Built and developed by the Japanese company, RT the Android was shown to be able to walk, open its mouth, and wave its arms. Best of all, the Android is controlled entirely from an Android OS handset. Unfortunately for all of us, no information was given about these going up for sale any time soon, even on a miniature scale. Read More
