YouTube Gaming is now available

Posted by wicked August - 27 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Android Apps_Google_YouTube Gaming_Screenshots_082615_15Google officially launched YouTube Gaming today, a new service for easy live-streaming games while chatting with your friends simultaneously. The app is live on Google Play now, in addition it’s also available online at the source link. 

YouTube gaming is a new service that has over 25,000 dedicated game pages and will support endless videos and live-streams. The app includes built in reminders that can alert users when a live-stream is taking place on their smartphone or tablet. Users can also stay up to date by adding their favorite games to a collection of their own. With YouTube Gaming, Google is making search very easy. For example, users can type in ‘war’ and get all games with the word ‘war’ in it. It won’t include all the other junk such as song titles a user won’t want and is guided specifically at gamers. It includes recommended content and a design language which is far superior when compared to competitors. Most importantly, the service runs very smooth without any lag and keeps advertisements to a minimum.

Google is hoping its new service will break apart the monopoly ‘Twitch’ has had for years. It’s very easy to set up and can be directly linked with the already widely popular ‘YouTube’ application. Google’s YouTube Gaming service can bring a ton of opportunities to gamers and could potentially leave competitors worried about their future.

Acer Predator gaming tablet on way to market as production commences

Posted by wicked August - 21 - 2015 - Friday Comments Off

acer_predator_8_tablet

With the tablet market cooling off so much recently, companies are starting to look for niches where special purpose tablets may make sense. One of those companies is Acer which announced plans to produce a tablet device that targets gamers. The only device on the market now that really focuses on the gaming market is the NVIDIA Shield. Acer hopes to capitalize on interest from gamers with the Acer Predator 8 tablet.

The Predator will be an 8-inch tablet based on an Intel Atom processor running at 1.6GHz, although it will have boost capabilities of up to 2.4GHz used to power the Android operating system and hopefully whatever games are thrown at it. Acer is also mixing in dual force feedback mechanicals and a quad-speaker setup.

A release date has not been announced, but it is expected to occur before the end of 2015, especially now that Acer has moved the device into actual production.

New ‘Play-Doh Jam’ game hits the Play Store with simple, addictive gameplay

Posted by wicked August - 20 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

play doh jamA new Play-Doh Jam game has been released onto mobile app stores from Backflip Studios (with Hasbro’s licensing, of course) that aims to offer a simple experience with Play-Doh balls. There’s really not much you can do with Play-Doh in the context of a game besides rolling it up into a ball and crashing into stuff, anyway.

The game is extremely simple, and all you have to do is guide your ball of clay across obstacles from your finger. The more things you roll over, the bigger your Play-Doh ball will grow. There are different monsters in the game, as well as tons of items, and a few different stages to play on, so there’s a decent amount of content to keep you or your kid engaged for a while. 

The app is free with some in-app purchases, so if you’re looking for a time waster or a bit of nostalgia, it’s probably worth checking out.

As previously promised by Bethesda Game Studios, Fallout Shelter is now available in the Google Play Store after being released for iOS only at E3. Fallout Shelter is a tie-in app created by Bethesda Game Studios to help fans pass the time while they wait for the release of Fallout 4.

In the game, which will work on smartphones and tablets, the player is in charge of a “Vault” where survivors in the post-apocalyptic world take refuge from the dangers of the surface. Players are responsible for managing resources, handling crises, and keeping the residents healthy and happy. Players will also find they occasionally have to send some of the survivors from their vault out into the world into to gather supplies and defend the Vault from raiders.

Bethesda Game Studios used a 1950’s cartoon style for the games graphics. Fallout Shelter is free, but offers in-app purchases to help you keep your Vault going. You can grab Fallout Shelter from the Play Store using the link below.

Google’s Niantic Labs will become it’s own company

Posted by wicked August - 13 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

ingress_app_iconWith Google being newly owned by Alphabet, many previously Google owned companies are being broken up and becoming their own company. One of those divisions that will now be it’s own independent company is Niantic Labs.

Niantic Labs is responsible for the very popular game Ingress.

“Niantic Labs is becoming an independent company. We’ll be taking our unique blend of exploration and fun to even bigger audiences with some amazing new partners joining Google as collaborators and backers. Niantic will be building on the success of +Ingress, which has been downloaded more than 12M times, has attracted more than 250,000 people to live events around the world, and has inspired users to collectively walk the distance from the earth to the sun while playing, exploring and discovering.”

You would assume Niantic Labs would become the “N” in the new Alphabet company, but Google will still remain a backer, along with upcoming partners. Niantic Labs sent an email to users stating that Google will start to send users data over to Niantic Labs on September 11, but users can opt out if they want to.
