What Android gaming really needs

What Android gaming really needs

Razer has just unveiled its much anticipated first smartphone, a device it bills to be made by gamers for gamers. While the street creds of the Razer Phone, as far as specs go, is undoubtedly the smartphone equivalent of a top-tier gaming PC, at the end of the day, it is pretty much just that: a top-tier smartphone. Its mere existence necessarily raises the question of what a gaming smartphone really is. But perhaps the deeper question that needs to be asked is whether it is what Android gamers and Android gaming needs today. Sadly, it really isn’t and Android gaming needs more than just a self-proclaimed “for gamers” smartphone in order to thrive.

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp puts a campsite on your phone

Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp puts a campsite on your phone

Although not as revered as franchises like Super Mario (already there) and Zelda (coming next!), Nintendo’s Animal Crossing has easily endeared itself to gamers for its Sims-like open-ended time-sink and its favorable furries. It’s less intense, almost relaxing gameplay almost makes for a perfect fit for mobile gaming. As luck would have it, Nintendo thinks so as well.

Monument Valley 2 finally lands on Android next month

The original Monument Valley was one of those mobile games that stands out in a sea of free-to-play cash grabs.

AT&T’s Threat Defender is a mobile game no one asked for

Sometimes companies and even governments release their own online or mobile games, and though the reasons vary, they're usually not that great. AT&T's own mobile game, Threat Defender, is no different.

RuneScape mobile client: Gamers finally know when to expect it

Developer Jagex has finally realized this, announcing that it will soon be releasing a mobile client for RuneScape.
