Welcome to a new series of posts we will be doing every week called Tegra Twosdays. While we will still post on any other day that has news regarding Tegra 2 stuff, Tegra Twosdays will be dedicated to all things Tegra and Android. As more devices and games come out, there will be multiple posts on Tuesday.
About two weeks ago we reported on Plants vs Zombies and the fact that PopCap Games came out to say it would be made available by the end of May. We have heard it before though so imagine our surprise when we looked today on Amazon and sure enough, there it is!
The other day Madfinger Games, developers of the awesome action game Samurai II: Vengeance, announced their upcoming title for dual and quad-core Android devices called Shadowgun. Since then many media sites have been labeling it as one of the most graphically impressive games for Android.
Yongzh, the developer of the most popular emulators on the Android Market, has be completely shut down. The hints that this was going to happen have been coming over the course of the past couple of month with the odd emulator being pulled here and there. Now, a total crackdown has happened.
Glu, as of late, have been very busy developing and releasing new games for a variety of platforms including Android. Recently they just released Contract Killer and Big Time Gangster, both of which follow the Freemium business model. Now Glu is getting set to release two more titles this Summer.
Computex 2011 is currently underway over in Taiwan and one of the little gems of awesomeness that has come out of Computex already is in regards to nVidia showing off some serious eye candy on their upcoming quad-core chipset, codenamed Kal-El. The game is called Glowball and it does, indeed, shine.
Over the course of the next couple of weeks we will be giving away 600,000 gold in Pocket Legends. It was 700,000 but last night we picked the first winner in our massive gold giveaway. Going by the name of Duffn of Twitter or more importantly Bianefreca in-game, they have won 100,000 gold!
Well here is something that should have happened possibly a year ago but better late than never right? It looks like a company by the name of Envisions is going to try and use Android to dig a bit deeper into their market share in the world of console gaming. This unit will be named the EVO 2.
Sometime we witness growth so great that we end up going “WTF” when reading the news. Well this is one of those cases where the numbers are just so massive that believing it at first can be difficult. Today, OpenFeint is reporting such a scenario with their member growth.
Sony Ericsson for awhile had some great promo videos for the Xperia Play. Everything some twisted looking sweatshop thumb surgery to Kristen Schaal going slightly nuts or speaking as the voice of Satan when the video is played backward. Now we get to see the outtakes that happened while filming those.
