Gears of War is coming to Android with a Funko Pop! skin

The Gears of War franchise is coming to Android, but it's not going to offer what you would expect from the series. Over the weekend at E3 Microsoft announced Gears Pop!, and the game will combine Funko's cutesy Pop! vinyl figures with the Gears of War franchise in order to create something new and exciting for mobile.

Last October PlayRaven and CCP Games announced an official EVE Online mobile game. At the time it was known as Project Aurora. In April of this year, Kongregate made it known that they would publish the game and that it would be called EVE: War of Ascension. Last week it was released on the Play Store, but there is one little problem, it would seem very few Android users can actually install it.

So naturally, everyone thought the Alexa version of Skyrim Bethesda demoed in its E3 press event was a self-aware joke. Nope, it's completely real, and you can play it right now.
