Razer products ready to enhance Android gaming, now on pre-order

Posted by wicked April - 24 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

Some of you into Android gaming may have been disappointed that the Razer Forge TV was pulled back out after having gone up for pre-order earlier this April. We already got our hands on what we believe could level up Android living room gaming. It’s not the first gaming product from Razer as we’ve seen several devices and apps from the brand in the past already. But good news from the company, the Forge TV is now back for pre-order and is available in a special bundle.

The Razer Forge TV is an Android TV device that was first introduced at the CES 2015 together with the Razer Serval which is also now ready for pre-order from Amazon and manufacturer’s website. The special Razer Forge TV Bundle is available for only $149.99. This promo includes both the $99 Forge TV and the $79 Serval. The bundle is a good deal already since you can get a $30 discount compared to when buying the two items separately.

To review, the Razer Forge TV is not an actual TV/display but a microconsole that is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB of built-in memory, HDMI, WiFi, USB 3.0, and Gigabit Ethernet. It’s something like a Nexus player but this one is focused on gaming. It runs the Android TV platform but it also features ‘Cortex: Stream’. It can be accessed and controlled from a smartphone or tablet via a compatible Android app.

As for the controller, Razer has got the Serval. It’s a gamepad that connects via Bluetooth. The Serval is just like any other controller complete with the joystick, buttons, triggers, shoulder buttons, etc. The controller can even be used for PC gaming or even act as a Bluetooth controller for your Android smartphone. There’s a clip on the gamepad that holds your phone in place. Sorry, but you can’t use this with a bigger-sized tablet.

Razer Forge TV will start shipping on April 29 while the Razer Serval and the Forge TV-Serval Bundle will be ready on May 5.

Mortal Kombat X makes its way to the Google Play Store

Posted by wicked April - 23 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Warner Bros International has just released Mortal Kombat X on the Google Play Store, after launching the game on iOS recently. It was soft launched on Android a week ago with only a handful of countries getting access to the game, but that seems to have changed now, at least to some extent.

The game is a typical one-on-one fighting game and works quite similar to Injustice: Gods Among Us. Your characters can be developed over time with more energy and moves, so it’s a game which will keep you hooked for long.

The app is a free download, but you have the ability to progress further in the game using in-app purchases. Head over to the link below for more details.

Humble_Tin_Man_Mobile_Bundle_01

Gamers listen up because Humble Bundle has a new mobile bundle that might be one of their best ever. They teamed up with Tin Man games for a chance at not only an amazing deal on 10 games, but a chance to grab some merchandise as well.

This bundle works like any other bundle in that you can pay what you want and receive a few games. Those games include An Assassin in Orlandes, Siege of the Necromancer, Slaves of Rema, and Judge Dredd: Countdown Sector 106. But you know there’s always more right? Just pay more than the average price ($6.19 at the time of this post), and receive 4 more games: Sultans of Rema, Fighting Fantasy: Caverns of the Snow Witch, Curse of the Assassin, and Trial of the Clone.

The deals don’t stop there because you can pay another $9 and receive Fighting Fantasy: Starship Traveller and Ryan North’s To Be Or Not To Be in addition to the eight games I already mentioned.

Humble Bundle is still not done as you can add another $35 and receive a Humble Tin Man Bundle Shirt ‘n’ Button. The t-shirt was designed by Adam Works. Lastly, if you’re one of the first 1,000 customers, you will also get a limited edition Pinny Arcade Tin Man Pin.

This bundle will be available until May 4, 2015 at 11:00 am, and you know they will likely add another 2 or 3 games to the mix for those that pay over the average price. So what are you waiting for? Hit the source link to get your game on.

Dead Trigger 2 players can win prizes by creating their own animated storylines

Posted by wicked April - 20 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Dead Trigger 2 Zombie Date

Dead Trigger 2 has been around for a fair amount of time now, receiving new content such as the Valentine’s Day update to help keep it fresh. In case you were getting antsy for even more, Madfinger Games has teamed up with Plotagon and come up with a way for users to create new animated storylines using the existing characters.

To start off, Madfinger Games and Plotagon are holding a competition where users will be able to turn their stories into animated content, with every week having a different theme. This week’s theme is Zombie Date. You can use the scenes, sounds and characters to make your very own story come to life.

Needless to say, prizes are on offer, with the winner receiving a Golden AK47 as well as all Plotagon content which adds up to around $130. Second prize consists of 2,500 DT2 in-game currency plus all available Plotagon content while 3rd place gets 1,000 in-game currency as well as all available Plotagon content. All you have to do is download Plotagon, and create a video based on the week’s theme. Then, name your creation, publish it and get your friends to like and share it as well. The winner will be decided according to how many votes it receives at Plotagon’s website.

There is a small catch here, in that the Plotagon software is only available for iOS, PC, and Mac operating systems. Boo! But as an Android user you should not be deterred by this blatant discrimination, you should rather concentrate on the big picture of killing zombies, getting your creation published and laying your hands on a prize. You can download the relevant software by clicking the source link below. If you choose to participate in the competition, don’t forget to come back and let us know all about it and good luck!

What happens when Amazon Game Studios works on a project with Human Head Studios? The new horror survival game Lost Within. The two worked on the game set inside an abandoned asylum that just so happens to be occupied by the Inhabitants, a group tortured and left behind only for players to fight and escape from. Players must navigate through the asylum and collect materials for weapons and health. Lost Within is a first-person game and that means players can expect a truly immersive experience that may or may not keep them up at night.

Hit the break for the launch trailer.

Lost Within is priced at $6.99. While that is a bit higher than other games, the trailer shows that Amazon Game Studios has nailed it in the quality department. The $7 seems worth it.

‘Postal’ admitted to Amazon Appstore, continues to be blocked from Google Play

Posted by wicked April - 10 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

postal_android_game_banner

This week, the game Postal was blocked from being distributed through the Amazon Appstore and Google Play. Why? The game, which is part of a series launched in 1997, features graphic content. Being blocked from the Amazon Appstore and Google Play is quite an issue considering the amount of users accessible through those digital storefronts.

Running with Scissors, the developer behind Postal, was served with notices from Amazon and Google that the game is too violent and thus does not meet their guidelines. Amazon’s rejection notice was not detailed, but Google specifically claimed that the game is “gratuitously violent.” Running with Scissors’ Mike Jaret-Schachter took to Twitter to voice his disappointment with the decision. He specifically noted games like Grand Theft Auto III being available to consumers.

Fortunately, Amazon did acknowledge that Postal should have a place in the Appstore and it is now available. Google, though, has not commented on the matter and Postal remains blocked from the Play Store.
