Fans of TCGs (Trading Card Games) has a new title to dig their teeth into.

If there is one thing that makes Hockey more special over other sports out there, it is the ability to kick your opponents ass right on the ice should the need arise to do so.

There are some types games that are going to benefit more than others when it comes to the gaming controls the Xperia Play has to offer.

So far when it comes to Hockey games on Android, there are a few good ones out there including Hockey Nations 2010 from Distinctive Developments. Well now that it is 2011, it is time for the new version to be released and while the 2010 edition was complete, it was missing one thing that all Hockey games seem to be missing.
