There have been very few attempts to bring a Counter-Strike style game to mobile, and there are a few good reasons for that. However that was then, and this is now and we have a new attempt to bring a skill-based FPS game to mobile called Critical Ops which is now available for download as an Alpha version.

Released by Starpolygon, Geometry Bounce is a new puzzler that’s now available on Google Play. Like many other puzzlers, the goal of this game is one that is simple, yet challenging. Players will control a ball, and will need to get it to make contact with a pre-determined target in each stage.
Soon to be released by mi-clos studio (known for creating the Out There franchise), Sigma theory will be a futuristic spin on the Cold War. Players will assume the role of one who is the head of your nation’s intelligence agency, which is tasked with using a new breakthrough technology to dominate the globe.
Telltale has made some announcements on their Twitter regarding some of their current games in a sort of impromptu Q&A session on Twitter. Let’s begin with the endings. Telltale announced that the finale for both Tales from the Borderlands will likely arrive next month, and the finale for their Game of Thrones franchise will follow shortly thereafter.
Each week in Vainglory six heroes are swapped out with six new ones which are made available to play for free. This week’s rotation features Skaarf, Saw, Fortress, Glaive, Ringo, and Koshka, making for a rather well-rounded mix of characters for new players to try out.
While this isn’t really gaming related, we might as well cover the last piece of hardware Google announced today during their event, Chromecast Audio. This is actually a pretty neat idea that allows users to turn their current speakers at home into ‘smart speakers’ basically. The whole thing works almost the same as normal Chromecast, except it is for music.
During Google’s event this morning, the company announces two new Chromecast devices. One is an improved version of the current Chromecast, complete with a new spherical design. The other is an audio version of Chromecast for speakers, which is admittedly pretty neat in itself.
Google announced today a new device they have been working on called the Pixel C, which is a tablet and keyboard combination which runs Android Marshmallow. However, even though this is a combination of two items, they are sold individually. It is also a pretty big powerhouse in terms of specs.
Google has made two new Nexus devices official today during their Nexus event, the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. Both devices comes with a lot of similar hardware and features, but the Nexus 6P is bigger in size and features the first full metal body for a Nexus phone.
In pretty much 20 minutes from now Google will be going live with their Nexus event and, of course, they will also be live streaming the entire thing for anyone who can’t actually be there. So if you are looking for where to watch the Nexus event, you can do so here or pretty much every other tech website on the internet, or YouTube as well.
