We have dug up some additional details regarding the upcoming Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection from Voidpoint that will be landing onto Google Play sometime in Q1 2015. As we mentioned in our original article, Voidpoint hasn’t come up with a specific price point yet for the collection but we do now have confirmation that there will not, at all, be any IAPs. We did mention that the entire collection would be included in the launch but considering the amount of games in it, we wanted to make sure it would be available for one price.

It is that time of the week once again to take a look at some of the funny and cool things that we have found in our journey for the search for news this week. With the Super Bowl coming up, companies have already started posting their upcoming ads and while we’ve already seen the life-size Pac-Man game one, this week we have two more sent to us from Sprint and T-Mobile.
If you happen to be a part of the closed beta for the upcoming The Witcher Battle Arena game, then you may have already received this email moments ago. However, if you haven’t then let this serve as a sort of PSA regarding the closed beta and that it will be ending in a few days, November 24th, 2014 to be exact.
There is a lot of talk lately that Rovio is having a less then stellar time right now with revenue. Many sites including ours have reported on it and it is basically due to the fact that you can only do so much with a franchise like Angry Birds before it gets tired and old. The company has relied so heavily on that franchise that it is now seeing less money than it has in some time. Of course they are still making a lot of money, just not as much as they used to make.
More Hearthstone news today for all of you players out there but this time the news comes in the form of an update to the game itself. The new Maraad card back has been added to the game for those of you who collect them by ranking 20 or higher every month.
Yesterday was the day that Duke Nukem 3D was released onto PC back in 1996. That was 19 years ago and to celebrate this anniversary, Voidpoint will be bringing Duke Nukem 3D: Hail to the King Collection to Android this Spring. This is largely thanks to the fact that Voidpoint has acquired commercial rights to the original 1996 PC game Duke Nukem 3D, the expansions ‘Duke It Out in D.C,’ Duke Caribbean: Life’s a Beach,’ ‘Duke: Nuclear Winter’ as well as the N64’s original Duke Nukem 64 and PlayStation’s original Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown from 1997.
Usually when we do our Android Game Sales round-ups the mid-week one and the final Friday round-up are, for the most part, pretty different. However once in a rare while it actually ends up being mostly the same. This is actually the case with this week except there are a few changes.
Blizzard’s popular TCG called Hearthstone was finally released onto Android back in December 2014 along with the new Goblins vs Gnomes content update for the game on all platforms. For everyone who had been waiting for this game to arrive but happen to not own a tablet, launch day for Hearthstone was a bit of a bitter sweet time. It meant that the game is finally out but for tablets only, putting it one step closer to having the game optimized for Android phones but without a tablet (or supported phablet) you still have to wait.
