Recently Google added the ability to stream app and game demos from Google Play that developers can use to show off a game or app online via a browser. Now Google is taking advantage of this feature themselves by offering up that feature within Google Ads themselves.
With Tegra 4 products launching in the near future and the fact we already know about Tegra 5 chipsets (codenamed Logan) already in development, it is interesting to see a demo video of Battlefield 3 running on an early Tegra 5 chipset even though Tegra 4 devices haven’t even hit store shelves for consumers yet.
For those of you who are more about having a compact, more portable, Android console instead of OUYA are probably more interested in PlayJam’s GameStick which did pretty damn good on Kickstarter and has since progressed nicely including a new design for their controller. We’ve seen plenty of pictures and video of GameStick and now anyone attending GDC 2013 next week will be able to check GameStick out in person as well.
Back during GDC 2012 we filmed and tested a bunch of demos that ARM has running at their booth which was to show off the Mali chip. Recently they released a video showing off Timbuktu, a racing game with some pretty nice eye candy. Today they have released a slew of videos showing off the Mali chip once again.
Our friends over at AndroidNZ have put together quite the thorough video showing off all the connectivity features that you can do with the new Samsung Galaxy S III phone. While some of it is pretty standard, when it comes to gaming they also show off connecting an Xbox controller, PS3 controller and running FPSe, a bluetooth keyboard and more.
We don’t know whether this makes us happy to see a game with graphics like this and such unique gameplay that could be possible or sad that we may never get to actually play this game but one thing we do know is this: This is one wild looking parkour game for Android.
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.
One of the big things we are looking forward to is hitting up the Sony Ericsson event at E3 this year where Mojang and friends will be demonstrating and announcing (officially) Minecraft for the Xperia Play. This will be temporarily exclusive to the Xperia Play for a short period of time.
Unigine is a 3D game engine that, up until recently, was strictly for Windows/Linux/PS3. Now it supports Android game development with future mobile platforms to be supported in the future. It is nice to see a game engine jump onto Android first when regarding mobile game development, then other platforms later.
