Interesting news today regarding OnLive, the once popular gaming-on-demand service that has had its fair share of troubles since the beginning of last year. Apparently the company, along with all of its assets, have been acquired by Sony and because of that operations will be ceasing in the coming months.
When the flurry of Android-based micro-consoles were being developed and hitting the market, Mad Catz’s MOJO was the leader of the pack and still is considering there hasn’t been any real micro-consoles coming out since then. The Obox from Snail Games isn’t really a micro-console and it isn’t even out yet so that doesn’t really count.
The classic arcade game Gauntlet has arrived onto OnLive but in its new revamped form which is the same game recently released for PC (available on Steam). If you happen to own a MOJO game console from Mad Catz, or any other Android console that features OnLive on it, you can also play this game on it as well.
In the world on micro-console the MOJO from Mad Catz is currently reigning supreme, at least in terms of quality. The Ouya, however, announced that it will be invading other Android devices and consoles with its Ouya Everywhere program and thanks to a new OTA update with the MOJO, Ouya Everywhere is now available on the console.
Last week we launched what we are calling the #GimmieMojo giveaway where we teamed up with Mad Catz to giveaway a MOJO Android game console to one lucky winner while a second winner would be taking home a F.R.E.Q.m gaming headset that features Mad Catz’s mobile GameSmart technology.
We haven’t ran a giveaway in quite some time, mostly due to being too busy expanding everything here at DroidGamers. With that said, it is about time to start getting back into giving away goodies to all our readers, especially with E3 2014 right around the corner, and to start things off right we are teaming up with Mad Catz to give away one Mojo game console to a lucky winner and another winner will get a F.R.E.Q.m headset.
OnLive hasn’t been in the news lately after the cloud-based game streaming company had all the financial troubles one could ever possibly not want. It seems that things might be picking up a bit for OnLive though as Mad Catz has announced the availability and optimization for OnLive for the Android-powered console of theirs called the MOJO.
As many of you may have noticed DroidGamers was down for roughly 34 hours starting Monday morning and ending with us coming back online late yesterday afternoon. Many of you are probably wondering what the hell happened but rest assured it was nothing bad, more like bad timing as we are preparing to open up the Mecha store.
A developer going by the name of Tricore has released a video showing how to achieve remote multi-touch using your Android devices and the Mad Catz MOJO game console. This is done through the use of tweaking a few settings on the Mad Catz MOJO console (rooted I believe) and Tricore’s keymapper which is apparently still in development.
We were one of the first sites to receive a Mad Catz Android-powered MOJO game console and since we received it we have been working on a review for this console, tossing everything at it that we could. We wanted to do an extensive review of this console, mainly because this one held the most promise of bringing the micro-console industry in Android to a new level. So how did the MOJO console fare against our rigorous review methods? Read on to find out traveler.
