Gameloft’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 swings onto the Play Store

Posted by wicked April - 18 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Spiderman 1

Gameloft is famous for releasing movie tie-in games for mobile devices, so of course they were tasked with bringing The Amazing Spider-Man 2 to the big small screen. The game features a sprawling open-world New York environment, filled with tons of events and missions to complete as Spider-Man. The game even features characters and villains from the Marvel comic book, going beyond what’s seen in the movies. The combat system is also fully fleshed out with tons of fluid animations and combos.

This looks to be one of the most technically impressive games that Gameloft has released, offering an experience that rivals a traditional console game. Mobile gaming may not ever overtake home console gaming, but it’s certainly getting close to giving gamers a similar experience across devices.

Hit the link for the download, priced at $4.99. You can check out the trailer and some screenshots below.

OUYA “Chupacabra” system update brings in XBMC audio passthrough and revamped pages

Posted by wicked April - 17 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Following its tradition of naming major system updates after mythical creatures, the OUYA team has announced the release of “Chupacabra”. And just like previous updates, this one drags in quite a huge amount of new features and fixes, including support for audio passthrough in XBMC, redesigned PLAY, DISCOVER, and Details pages, as well as better support for game controllers and media remotes.

Although OUYA is a gaming console, like other boxes of its kind, it can also serve its life as a media center. However, it did not yet support the much coveted audio passthrough feature via XBMC. That all changes in this release and this new feature is one of the major highlights of Chupacabra. OUYA now gains audio passthrough support for AC3, DTS, and AAS formats. Those who wish to use this new feature should ensure that they are running not only the latest OUYA firmware but also the update XBMC app as well.

Moving on to the user interface, OUYA has introduced yet another set of changes to how it presents content on your big screen. Just because you have a lot screen space doesn’t mean you need to litter it with every single piece of information. To that end, the DETAILS page for each game has considerably reduced its information density and is now easier to read. But it also adds some new types of information via a Developers section, so that users can get to better know the makers of their favorite game as well as other games made by them, in case they become interested.

ouya-chupacabra-2

The PLAY page has also seen a slight redesign to make it easier to find the games that matter to you. A new Favorites row has been added just below the old Recent Games section and two new ways to view games, Purchased and Recent Downloads, as been added at the very bottom. OUYA now also has a download manager that lets you prioritize your download queue on the fly. The video below summarizes the update changelog and gives a look at the new features in moving pictures format.

The Chupacabra update isn’t just for end users either. Also included in this round is the new developer policy foreshadowed last month. Starting this update, game developers will be free to choose whether they want to sell their wares upfront or stick to the old system that let them give out free demos for gamers to try before buying. All in all, this latest OTA update has something in store for both developers and gamers alike that will hopefully take small console gaming, and ultimately Android gaming, up a notch.

Humble Bumble 9 adds three new games

Posted by wicked April - 10 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

humble_bundle_9We like to talk about Humble Bumble a lot at TA, and for good reason. If you aren’t familiar, Humble Bumble lets you buy a group of games for a lower than average price, while helping developers and charity. Humble Bumble 9 already had six games, but if you pay more than the average, you’ll now get three additional titles: Savant: Ascent, Snyder Arcade, and The Shivah.

In Savant: Ascent, you go up a tower in search of a curious orb while battling enemies. Snyder Arcade is “serious old-school gaming,” as you blast objects in outer space in this shoot-em-up. The last game, The Shivah, you are a Jewish Rabbi trying to find the truth behind money left to him.

The current average price is $3.90, so if you pay more than that you’ll get all of the titles available. Download via the link below.

Gameloft optimizing games for Amazon’s Fire TV

Posted by wicked April - 5 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

Gameloft

As Amazon finally moves into the market of devices meant to help consumers get digital content displayed on their TVs with the release of their Fire TV device, one of the big factors that may influence their success will be apps, including games. We’ve already seen Google’s strategy with Chromecast play out as they slowly dribbled out the ability for services and apps to make use of the device. Amazon appears to have done more work to ensure content is ready with the shipment of the devices, but there is still room for more apps to join the party. One example is Gameloft, which has already started optimizing their titles for use on Fire TV.

Initially, Gameloft has made three titles ready for Fire TV – Asphalt 8: Airborne, Modern Combat 4, and Despicable Me: Minion Rush. Gameloft says they will be optimizing more titles in the future. The company thinks “Amazon’s broad consumer base” will help drive the reach of their titles on the platform and ultimately the success of Fire TV.

Does the ability to access leading game titles, like those from Gameloft, have an impact on your interest in a device like the Amazon Fire TV?

Phonejoy game controller finally ships to backers

Posted by wicked March - 27 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

After more than a year of waiting, Kickstarter supporters who pledged their money will start to receive their Phonejoy game controller. This controller promises to bring button-mashing enjoyment to your Android device, no matter their size.

Phonejoy took to Kickstarter in late December 2012 to try to get funds to bring this multi-purpose wireless controller to life. It was met with some amount of success, ending up with almost $20,000 more than their $50,000 goal. Now those who have been patiently waiting for the fruits of their money will finally get a chance to enjoy the gaming goodness brought by this controller.

Unlike majority of game controllers for smartphones, the Phonejoy was designed from the very beginning to be compatible with as many devices as possible. Using a unique sliding mechanism, the controller can adjust to fit not just Android smartphones but even, say, an iPhone. And it’s not just smartphones either. Even a Nexus 7 tablet can fit, although in an slightly awkward portrait orientation. That same sliding mechanism also allows the Phonejoy game controller to collapse into a neat little package that is no larger, but definitely fatter, than your wallet for maximum portability.

The game controller connects to devices via Bluetooth and is advertised to cover a distance of 30 feet. While that may be useless for mobile devices, since you’ll be attaching them to the controller anyway, it does make the controller usable for even PC gaming. Those who missed out on backing this product will just have to wait when the Phonejoy game controller goes on retail for a price of $69.90.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes companion app sneaks into Android

Posted by wicked March - 21 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Your favorite AAA game might be on a console or PC, but that doesn’t mean your mobile device needs to feel left out. With this companion app for Konami’s recently released Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, your smartphone or tablet can join in on the fun and even take a more active role in the game.

The use of mobile devices as secondary screens to augment the gaming experience is starting to catch on, and in that sense this companion app is no different. The app turns your device into a second screen with iDroid mode, displaying in-game maps on the device itself. Whether this actually makes things easier or more distracting is something for gamers to decide. The app also features a Cassette Tapes mode that users listen to in-game music and tapes. However, this mode will only be unlocked once players finish the game at least once with the device connected in iDroid mode.

The app does have other uses even outside the game itself. For one, it will update users on the latest news about the game under the Data Portal mode. The Mother Base mode is equally interesting as it is a stand-alone mode that can be played independently or connected with the game. It features a sort of training ground for your forces. When tied in with the game, you can unlock special troops and weapons using this mode.

The Metal Gear Solid V: GZ companion app is available for free on Google Play Store from the link below. However, it does have some hard requirements, aside from Android 4.0 and higher. An Internet connection is required in order to link your device with your MGSV:GZ game in iDroid mode. Xbox 360 users will also be required to have Microsoft Smart Glass installed on their devices as well.

ZTE9 unveils FunBox home entertainment console

Posted by wicked March - 20 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

Expanding beyond the confines of the usual smartphones and tablets, ZTE has announced its first foray into the gaming industry. But more than just simply a gaming console, the ZTE9 FunBox offers an all around connected experience for the family to enjoy in the living room.

The FunBox is the brainchild of ZTE9 Limited, which is what ZTE is calling its partnership with The9, one of China’s more popular game companies. Together they have brought forth a device that would sing to the hearts of Android gamers. After all, it boasts of an NVIDIA Tegra 4 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a Bluetooth controller, and a variety of connectivity options like WiFi and USB. This puts the colorful box right up there, and probably higher, than similar Android gaming consoles being offered today.

But gaming isn’t the only purpose the FunBox has in life. Being an Android device, the possibilities are almost endless. Hook it up to a TV, preferably a smart one, and you double the fun. ZTE claims that the FunBox can be used for making video calls, provided the smart TV is well-equipped. It might be a strange setup, but it could be useful for family or group gatherings. Of course, online video streaming will also be another source of entertainment.

ZTE9 has not yet revealed how much the FunBox will cost, but it says that online sales will start next month on retailer JD.com’s website. This makes the console available only in China, with no word yet on international markets. Customers will be able to select from 12 color options but ZTE hopes that the buyers will be able to choose personalized casings for the FunBox in the future.
