Phoenix Wright: Spirit of Justice lands on Google Play like a solid gold gavel

thumbnail

Order in the court! Phoenix Wright: Spirit of Justice has landed on Google Play. Unfortunately, you’ll have to earn as much as a barrister to buy it. Objection! Okay, objection sustained. Spirit of Justice costs £18.99, which may be eye-wateringly steep for an Android game but it’s a fair price for a full-length title in the awesome Phoenix Wright series. That sum buys you all five chapters, plus the special episode featuring Larry Butt, and costume add-ons. Otherwise you’re getting everything you’d expect from Capcom’s long-running courtroom sim: melodramatic ...

Animal Crossing for mobile will be out this December, predicts analyst

thumbnail

For what it’s worth, which is pretty much nothing, an analyst has predicted that Animal Crossing will be out on mobile this December. Animal Crossing for mobile has been in the works since last year, when Shigeru Miyamoto crossed his own person Rubicon by announcing several Nintendo IPs for mobile. It has seen delays, however, and at this point nobody really know what’s happening with it. Nobody, that is, except Macquarie Capital Securities analyst David Gibson, who believes Animal Crossing will come to mobile as soon as ...

SHIELD TV 16GB With SHIELD Remote Bundle Price Cut to $179

thumbnail

Launched earlier this year with a price of $199, the SHIELD TV from NVIDIA has just received a price cut, now listed at $179 on NVIDIA’s website. NVIDIA says this price will also be reflected at retailers soon and we can’t help but assume this is a move directed at Apple’s launch of the Apple TV 4K ($199). This $179 option is a 16GB unit with SHIELD Remote, but do note, it comes with no SHIELD Controller. That’s an add-on you can purchase for the same ...

OnePlus Moves Launcher, Weather, Gallery Apps to Google Play for Quicker Updates

thumbnail

One of the most important moves in Android history, I think, was the moment where Google started separating a whole bunch of core apps from the system and added them to Google Play (or Android Market at the time). This move essentially allowed for faster updates to Android in general, but it also helped updates to apps like Gmail arrive quicker as Google introduced major improvements early on. Fast forward to today and other manufacturers have done the same with many of their own custom ...

Amazon is working on a pair of Alexa-enabled ‘smart glasses’ and a home security camera

In the battle to become our smart assistant of choice, Amazon's Alexa is currently losing out in one key area: mobile. Apple's iPhones have Siri, and Android phones have the Google Assistant, but with the failure of the Fire phone, Alexa isn't the convenient choice on any smartphone. According to a report in the Financial Times, Amazon plans to address this issue by launching a pair 'smart glasses' that can interact with Alexa. The project is certainly reminiscent of Google Glass. In fact, Amazon hired ...

This new Middle Earth: Shadow of War mobile trailer explains the updated Nemesis system

thumbnail

2014’s console and PC game Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor was great, thanks in part to its innovative Nemesis system, which saw you taking on orc commanders who belonged to a military hierarchy. Win and another orc would rise through the ranks to replace them. Lose and they’d grow more powerful. The Nemesis system didn’t have anything other than a cosmetic influence on your overall progress through the game, but it infused the big set-piece battles with extra tension. Guess what. The sequel, Shadow of War, is ...
