Samsung Gear VR demo units starting to arrive at Best Buy stores

Posted by wicked October - 1 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Samsung_gear_vr_best_buy_display

The Gear VR just might be the next big thing, but unless consumers can try it out, they will never understand the full potential of the device. That’s why Samsung will provide demo units to Best Buy stores for consumers to experience the world of virtual reality themselves.

It’s being reported that Best Buy stores in southern California have already received devices. Only one problem though. You can’t actually demo it yet. The reason is because the Gear VR is only compatible with the Galaxy Note 4. You will get a chance to demo the VR, but you will have to wait until stores start receiving Galaxy Note 4 units.

Let us know in the comments if any of your local stores have VR units on display.

star wars galactic defenseStar Wars: Galactic Defense will be coming to Android later this year, combining the Star Wars prequels with classic tower defense gameplay. The game looks entertaining enough, although it’s probably not going to be a revolutionary genre-bending game. The developer has opened early registration for gameplay information and will be giving away some free in-game items for signing up. All you need is an email address to do, and you’ll be among the first to know when the app hits the Play Store.

If Star Wars and tower defense games are two of your hobbies, you can check out some screenshots and footage of the game below.

Humble Bundle: PC and Android 11 for games at home and on the go

Posted by wicked September - 23 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

humble_bundle_11_logo

Humble Bundle has a new package of titles ready to be scooped up by interested buyers that includes titles for both computers and and Android mobile devices. Humble Bundle: PC and Android 11 already includes ten games capable of running on several platforms including Windows, OS X and Linux. Users who use Steam can also access some of the titles through that platform.

Humble Bundle has changed things up a bit with this latest bundle, introducing a third tier for purchases. There is the normal tier where buyers choose what they are willing to pay and get at least the basic titles, four in this case, that are included in the bundle. By paying more than the average price at the time the order is placed, buyers can get access to an additional four titles and potentially more if additional titles are added. That is also standard operating procedure for Humble Bundle. For this bundle, they have also included a new tier that includes two titles if you pay at least $11.

The titles in this bundle currently include:

Basic tier:

  • Thomas Was Alone
  • Bridge Constructor Playground
  • Cubemen
  • Cubemen 2

Above Average tier:

  • Small World 2
  • Blackwell 1: Legacy
  • Blackwell 2: Unbound
  • Blackwell 3: Convergance

$11 tier:

  • Surgeon Simulator
  • Anomaly Defenders

Surgeon Simulator is currently listed in the Play store for $5.99 while Anomaly Defenders goes for $3.99, so opting for the top tier is like buying those two titles and then getting the rest for about a dollar. If you are interested in grabbing this deal, hit the source link after the video below.

Non-Sony Android devices get access to Sony PS4 Remote Play thanks to new port

Posted by wicked September - 23 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

xda_ps4_remote_play_port

When Sony announced their new Xperia Z3 smartphones during IFA 2014, one of the new features included was PS4 Remote Play. This new feature meant owners of the new devices could use their Sony smartphones as a second screen for the their Sony PS4 gaming platform. Even better than that, users could continue to play PS4 titles remotely on their mobile device. This was some great news for gamers who had PlayStation 4 devices if they were going to invest in a new Sony smartphone. Unfortunately, a Sony spokesperson said the company had “no intent to bring remote play to any device other than Xperia” meaning a lot of PlayStation 4 owners would miss out on the feature. That may have changed now thanks to a new port developed by XDA member XperiaPlaystation who has figured out how to get it working with a much larger population of Android devices.

According to XperiaPlaystation, the ported app should work with Android devices running at least Android 4.0 or newer. Users do have to install CWM (ClockWorkMod) Recovery, then flash a ZIP file, follow a couple other steps to clean up the device, and then install the APK file. Oddly enough, owners of a Sony Xperia Z1 have an additional step related to changing their build.prop in order to get the ported app to work.

If you have a PlayStation 4 and want to give the PS4 Remote Play app a try and you are willing to do some work on your device, hit the source link below for more detailed instructions and links to the appropriate files.
