Dark Souls III is slated for release onto PC and console this month and fans of the franchise are chomping at the bit for it to arrive. I should know because I am one of them.

If for some reason you didn’t snag a Shield Android TV during Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or for Christmas, then you still have an opportunity to grab one on sale from Gamestop for a limited time. Their sale features the unit itself, along with the free remote promotion, and a free game as well.
So this week GameStop will be hosting their yearly expo showcasing all sorts of gaming related goodness. We like to think of it as a sort of mini E3 each year, which is basically is. So what can you expect to see from the GameStop Expo this year?
Black Friday is almost upon us (November 29th, 2013 for those of you who may have forgotten) and as always this means people are out hunting for all the best deals that they can find. When it comes to Android products, there’s a plethora of deals to be had not only on Black Friday but on Thanksgiving Thursday, Cyber Monday and over the weekend as well.
It seems like OUYA news always comes in clumps lately and today is no different as we have a few bits of information regarding the Android powered console to go over.

The Wikipad Android gaming tablet that was supposed to be released this week has been delayed until further notice. For those of you who had been planning to go to your local GameStop and pick one of them up, you are going to have to wait a bit longer.

It provides a full set of gaming controls so you can play games using actual physical controls.
Way back in April of 2011 we talked about GameStop who had been developing their own rumored game streaming service called Spawn, the software of which they purchased from another company called Spawn Labs. Now, after all this time, it looks like the service will finally become a reality next year and will be available for tablets, TVs and PCs.
GameStop has been selling a bit of a selection of Android tablets for a little while now and it appears that they are planning to add one more tablet to that list. The Nexus 7 tablet (16GB model) will be added to their catalog of Android tablets available for purchase and GameStop has already begun taking pre-orders.
GameStop has expanded into the mobile market even further by announcing the availability of Android tablets in more than 1,600 of its stores across the United States. There are a handful of tablet models right now, which should be enough to prevent GameStop customers from getting overwhelmed. You can also purchase the tablets online with free shipping.
