‘Vainglory’ opens Autumn 2015 season, improves Android app

Posted by wicked October - 1 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off


The multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game Vainglory is launching their 2015 Autumn season of play. With the latest update to the game, taking it to version 1.9, Vainglory will now use a seasonal structure. During the seasons, players will have to do their best to rise up in rank and rack up achievements before the season ends, which is slated to be sometime in early January for the new season. As part of the latest update, developer Super Evil Megacorp put a lot of attention into the Android app version to help expand the audience.

According to Super Evil Megacorp, hardware requirements for Vainglory have been drastically reduced. Users will only need 1GB of memory in their device, down from 2GB, and the title will now run on Android devices with at least a dual-core processor instead of a quad-core. This should open gameplay up to a lot of new devices.

Across all platforms, users will find they have access to a new hero, Phinn, some limited-time seasonal skins and map, and a new Petal with new abilities. Android players will find they can get a free Taka during the month of October. Vainglory also gets support for Guilds which are designed to help players find like-minded gamers to join with in the game. Teams have also been added, with support for up to six members on a team.

You can check out some screenshots and a short video showing gameplay below. If Vainglory looks like a title you might be interested in, use the Play Store link to get it installed on your device.

‘Need for Speed: No Limits’ is now available in the Play Store

Posted by wicked September - 30 - 2015 - Wednesday Comments Off


It’s September 30, and that means it’s not only the day after Google unleashed a whole host of new devices and services (which you can catch up on right here), but it’s also the day where you can finally download the new Need for Speed racing game.

Need_For_Speed_No_Limits (7)
Need_For_Speed_No_Limits (6)

If you pre-registered for the game, you’ll receive 50,000 credits as well as a couple of crates and cars, and you should have received a notification informing you that the game is ready to be installed. Be warned, it’s a 775MB download, so make sure you are connected to WiFi if you have a data cap, and EA says the game requires a constant data connection during use.

While Need for Speed: No Limits is free to download, as you can see from the screenshots above, as expected, there are plenty of in-app purchases available. So if you are installing it on your child’s device, make sure to secure your payment methods by setting the Play Store to ask for a password for every transaction, if not going so far as to completely disable them. The IAP’s range from £1.49 to a whopping £79.99, so it’s definitely worth keeping an eye on. Available IAPs include buying gold, cars, and crates of premium parts for the car.

At the start of the game, you are given 10 units of fuel, with every race you enter using a certain number of units. While in the beginning of the game, the fuel gets topped up with comparative ease, you can bet that the further you get in the game, the harder it will be to keep your tank topped up. Between dodging the cops, setting hot laps or beating rivals, its great fun while the fuel lasts.

As for the game, well, anyone who played Need for Speed: Most Wanted on their device will be familiar with the controls. Tap on the left or right of the display to steer, swipe up to activate the Nitro boost. It really is that simple. You can also set the steering to control the car by tilting the device in the appropriate direction or by swiping left and right.

Despite the fact it is laden with IAPs, after having played for around 30 mins (purely in the name of research, you understand), I’ve found Need for Speed: No Limits to be a fun installment in the venerable Need for Speed franchise. That said, I haven’t really progressed to the point where frustration will set in because EA want to force people to buy IAPs.

It should also be pointed out that there are some early complaints of less than stunning graphics, which is surprising considering that this game took so long to be released. YMMV.

‘Need for Speed: No Limits’ finally has a definitive release date

Posted by wicked September - 28 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off


The wait for Need for Speed: No Limits has been lengthy to say the least. Electronic Arts released the mobile game’s first trailer at the start of the year and named Spring 2015 as a ballpark release date. However, that did not pan out and the game is still not available on Android devices. Who knows what happened, but EA is now ready to tell you that Need for Speed: No Limits will be live in the Play Store this week.


The game will be available on September 30, but you can pre-register for the game right now to receive free exclusive content.

Just don’t expect to refuel your vehicle for free in the game. Need for Speed: No Limits is all about in-app purchases.

Official trailer for the upcoming ‘Angry Birds’ movie is here

Posted by wicked September - 24 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off


Sony and Rovio Entertainment are getting ready to release the official Angry Birds movie inspired by the widely popular Angry Birds game. Today, the companies released the official teaser trailer for the upcoming movie.

The movie will obviously be aimed at a younger crowd and will hit theaters next Summer. The upcoming movie will feature Jason Sudeiks, Josh Gad, Maya Rudolph, Danny McBride, Kate McKinnon, Tony Hale, Keegan-Michael Key, Bill Hader, Peter Dinklage and many more.

Judging from the trailer, the red colored bird is the main character and will be played by Jason Sudeiks. He has anger issues and is taking anger management classes in hope to get better. A pig disrupts the red bird as well as his neighbors. When he gets mad or really upset he’s known to blow up.

Hopefully the movie won’t be as bad as the trailer, but if you’re into it, you can watch the trailer in the embedded video down below.
