Minecraft Pocket Edition getting update full of cool things this week

Developer Mojang has announced an update to Minecraft: Pocket Edition on all mobile platforms, Android included, will be submitted to the app stores for Google, Apple and Microsoft this week. Mojang is highlighting a new “skins” feature, probably because it includes an in-app purchase option, but there are a bunch of other wacky updates and new features included.

Skins for Minecraft: Pocket Edition will be the way players can change the appearance of their character. The skins do not provide any special abilities or affect game play in any. They are just for looks.

For those ready to get a new look right away, Minecraft will offer bundles of paid skins for about $1 per pack of around 20 skins. The first two that will be available include City Folk and Town Folk. Those interested in spending a little time instead of money on new skins can look for them on the Internet and upload them to Minecraft: Pocket Edition or create their own using the Minecraft: Skin Studio.

For users interested in other aspects of the game, Mojang has a slew of new stuff being added. Boats will now support two passengers so players can take their pets along, stuff like snowballs and eggs can be thrown from boats, and players will now be able to fish, even for edible clownfish.

Lots of new creatures are being added to the game, including chicken jockeys, baby zombies, bats, cave spiders, spider jockeys, and squids. Mojang also fixed some issues like chickens walking on water and animals breeding without touching along with general bug fixes.

Indefinite: Interrogation Game offers unique spin on concentration genre

Posted by wicked May - 23 - 2015 - Saturday Comments Off

incident_game_icon

A new game from developer BrandLibel offers a unique twist on the concentration game genre. Incorporating hints of dystopian fiction titles like The Hunger Games or The Maze Runner, Indefinite: Interrogation Game places the player in the role of a detainee being interrogated about their involvement in a catastrophic global event called “The Incident.”

The game presents the player with over 30 unique questions and 100 possible answers. As selections are made with a timer running, the player needs to remember their answers as similar questions will roll back around. If later answers don’t match earlier answers, players will find they come under increasing suspicion from their interrogator.

At the end of the game, players get a report on what their likely role was in The Incident, a summary that is similar to the results one gets when taking social media quizzes.

Incident is free, but does offer in-app purchases to help bribe the interrogator to improve your position or get rid of ads.

19 Sega games have been pulled from mobile app stores

Posted by wicked May - 20 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

SEGA logoWe knew Sega was planning on pulling several of its games from mobile app stores, although the company didn’t give any indication of which games were getting brushed under the rug. Thanks to some keen observers at PocketGamer, though, we have a list of exactly which 19 games are MIA from the Play Store.

Looks like Sonic the Hedgehog is safe, but the following 19 games are no longer available for sale:

  • After Burner Climax
  • Jet Set Radio
  • Super Monkey Ball 1 & 2
  • Super Monkey Ball Adventure
  • Super Monkey Ball Tip’n’Tilt 1 &2
  • Super Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll
  • Super Monkey Ball Banana Splitz
  • Altered Beast
  • Ecco the Dolphin
  • Golden Axe 1, 2 & 3
  • Phantasy Star 2
  • Streets of Rage 1 & 3
  • Space Harrier 2
  • Virtua Fighter 2

Sega hasn’t issued an official statement about these games, but they did say earlier that the games might be brought back if they were updated and brought up to “Sega’s standards.” If you’ve already downloaded the apps, you’re in the clear, as they won’t be untied from your account. There’s just no guarantee that they’re going to work well on newer devices.

Hopefully Sega either puts the resources into updating these older titles, or they use their condensed catalog as an opportunity to avoid being in this situation in the future.

[Deal] Amazon has 38 paid apps and games for FREE ($110 value) through May 16

Posted by wicked May - 14 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Amazon_App_Sale_Banner

Amazon is at it again with another Android app and game sale. Amazon always has at least one free app of the day, but today they are bundling 38 apps and games. All of these titles are absolutely Free and will stay that way through May 16.

Some of the more notables are Photo Studio Pro (normally $3.99), Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 (normally $2.99), Game Of Thrones – A Telltale Games Series (normally $4.99), and Fleksy Keyboard (normally $1.99).

Remember, downloading from the Amazon App Store means you’re tied to Amazon for future updates. This means that you have to keep the Amazon App Store app on your device. Titles that you download and install for Free are transferable to any other phone or tablet as long as you download and install the Amazon App Store on each device and log into your Amazon account. I still recommend using the Google Play Store for all your app and gaming needs since updates will be quicker and the overall process is so much easier. On the other hand, there is a considerable amount of savings here, so I don’t blame you if you want to go this route. Plus, if you have a Fire tablet or phone, you don’t have to worry about a thing since it’s the only means of downloading apps.

You can hit up the link below to see the full list of apps and games.

NVIDIA’s GRID game streaming service now outputs full 1080p HD in 60 fps

Posted by wicked May - 13 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

nvidia_shieldNVIDIA has just announced a new milestone for their GRID streaming service; full HD game streaming at 60 frames per second. The latest SHIELD Hub beta incorporates the higher resolution feature, and it’s expected to roll out to all devices by the end of May.

This bumps the streaming resolution up from 720p to a full 1080p, marking the first time we’ve seen this from a game streaming service. Streaming interactive content, like video games, has always been a little more tricky than beaming HD movies and TV shows, but NVIDIA has been hard at work making it a reality. There are 35 games in the library of GRID games including the likes of Batman Arkham Origins, Devil May Cry 4, and the newest Dirt 3, and it’s available exclusively on NVIDIA’s SHIELD devices.

Have any of you had any experience with one of NVIDIA’s handheld Android gaming machines?

Rovio’s Angry Birds franchise sorties onto Samsung’s Gear VR headset

Posted by wicked May - 13 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off

Rovio_Android_Birds Gear VR

There’s a pretty good chance that you’ve probably played at least one game in the Angry Birds franchise, whether it was on your smartphone, tablet, Roku, Xbox, Playstation, smart TV, I could go on, but I’m sure you get the picture already. Angry Birds is available on almost any platform you could wish. Never one to stand still, Rovio has shown off an Angry Birds demo on Samsung’s Gear VR headset at the Rock in Rio festival that was recently held in Las Vegas.

It seems that this time, instead of shooting your birds off a catapult to smash those dastardly piggies, the game consists of guiding your favourite birdies through floating rings along a chosen path with lots of 3D special effects using one’s head as the steering mechanism. It’s unknown as yet whether this Gear VR compatible game will be released on a wider scale or if it is merely for demonstrative purposes.

Possible NVIDIA SHIELD Portable successor receives certification overseas

Posted by wicked May - 12 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

nvidia_shield_2_rra

An unnamed device from NVIDIA received certification in South Korea just yesterday. The device is believed to be the successor to the company’s SHIELD Portable that was released in 2013.

Specifications were not included with the certification but the next handheld gaming console from NVIDIA is almost guaranteed to have the upcoming Tegra X1 processor and integration with the GRID game streaming service. The company recently removed itself from the modem business; therefore, NVIDIA will be loading its own hardware with in-house processors to showcase potential.

Pricing will be important as the original SHIELD Portable was priced rather high at $299 and received little attention from gamers. What price point would you like to see an NVIDIA Portable successor hit? Let us know in the comments.
