Razer Phone gets $300 discount (guess what that means)

The Razer Phone was given a bit of a price-cut this week amid rumors of a new Razer handset coming to market soon. This price cut was significant as it was the first price adjustment the company gave the device since release. The next device, we can safely assume, was the Razer Phone 2, or whatever it'll end up being called as it's revealed before the end of this year.

Nintendo’s Dragalia Lost reveals action RPG gameplay for the first time

So far, Nintendo's attempts to break into mobile gaming have been centered around the company's existing franchises. Dragalia Lost, which was announced earlier this year, breaks that trend, as it'll be the first new IP Nintendo has created for mobile devices. Late last night, Nintendo detailed Dragalia Lost in a Direct presentation that was entirely dedicated to the game, and it seems to draw inspiration from a number of different titles.

Nintendo’s Dragalia Lost mobile game gets a release date and its own Direct

Nintendo has been focusing on the Switch a lot lately, so much so that you'd be forgiven if you forgot about the company's ongoing mobile strategy. Nintendo has already brought a number of its established franchises to mobile - Pokemon, Super Mario, Fire Emblem, and Animal Crossing, to be precise - but earlier this year, it announced its first original mobile game: Dragalia Lost. Today, Nintendo announced when Dragalia Lost will launch, and the game's release is coming up quickly.

Fortnite Installer for Android made our worst fears come true

Fortnite Installer for Android made our worst fears come true

It was really only a matter of time. Epic Games was, after all, tempting fate, not to mention hackers and criminals in its righteous zeal to open up the Android (but not iOS) app ecosystem. A bug in the Fortnite Installer for Android apparently left devices vulnerable to “man-in-the-disk” attacks for weeks, or at least until they update to the latest version of the installer. And while both sides are thankful for the other’s swift action, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney didn’t miss the opportunity to call out Google for not breaking its own vulnerability disclosure policies.

Fortnite Android performance issues addressed by Epic

Fortnite Android performance issues addressed by Epic

Fortnite's Android launch has been a little bit messy thus far. First, we learned that the game wouldn't be available on the Google Play Store, then it was the beta's brief-but-still-kinda-weird exclusivity period on Samsung devices. Now, it seems that a large number of players are experiencing poor performance, which is obviously a pretty frustrating development.

Fortnite Android modders beware: Epic can ban phones forever

Fortnite Android modders beware: Epic can ban phones forever

Epic Games’ decision to make Fortnite temporarily exclusive to the Galaxy Note 9 isn’t exactly news nor unpopular. Its decision to shun Google Play Store, however, is ruffling not a few feathers and worrying some about potential security problems. Epic, however, doesn’t concerned at all. In fact, it may have preferred this setup exactly because it would allow them to permaban any player using an unofficial or modded APK, no questions asked.

PUBG Lite gives mid-range Android phones their turn

Fortnite may have just launched on Android at long last, at least for Samsung Galaxy owners, but its biggest rival is set to one-up it yet again. PUBG, more formally known as PlayerUnknown’s BattleGround, actually came on mobile, both on Android and iOS, first and now it’s giving Android users with less capable phones a reprieve. That’s right, PUBG Lite is now available, at least in some regions, that will let fans enjoy their favorite battle royale game on the go, albeit in a much smaller scale.

Fortnite Beta on Android exclusive to Samsung Galaxy owners

Now that the Galaxy Note 9 cat is out of the bag, it’s time to let that other kitty out as well. Samsung’s Unpacked event is indeed kicking off Fortnite’s arrival on Android but it isn’t exactly as we expected it to be. Yes, it’s going to be exclusive to Samsung’s faithful Galaxy fans but not only for the Galaxy Note 9. It turns out, the period of exclusivity is actually only for Fortnite’s beta testing, giving Galaxy owners a foretaste of what’s to come.

Fortnite Mobile on Android: here is how it will play out

Just as battle royale games have left a deep mark in the PC gaming market, it is now also poised to change the face of mobile gaming, especially after the mobile launch of the two biggest titles in that genre. Well, one and a half. Fortnite is still due to launch on Android alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. But considering Android’s software ecosystem, it isn’t surprising that some very arduous developers have managed to get it running on the closest thing to a Galaxy Note 9: Samsung’s own Galaxy S9+.

Fortnite Android app downloads limited to this list of phones

It's pretty safe to say that Fortnite has enjoyed a successful mobile launch, but there's one major piece that's still missing: Android support. Android users have been waiting for months to hear when the game will be launching for their preferred platform, but there's reason to believe that we're closing in on release.
