Entire library of SNK Playmore games marked down to 99 cents – includes all Metal Slugs, King of Fighters, and more Fri, 22 Aug 2014 21:27:57 +0000 King of Fighters Android

There’s probably no better way to relive gaming’s golden age on your Android device than with SNK Playmore’s titles on Google Play. You remember those days of plunking quarters down your favorite coin-op machine at your local pizzeria, only to realize you’ve spent a small fortune trying to make it to the 2nd level of Metal Slug.

SNK Playmore Google Play

Well, today, in celebration of King of Fighters’ 20th anniversary (technically this Monday, August 25th), SNK Playmore is marking down their entire game library to only $1. The game sale will run all the way until Tuesday, August 26th and includes the following titles:

  • Metal Slug 3
  • Metal Slug X
  • Metal Slug 2
  • Metal Slug 1
  • The King of Fighters ’98
  • The King of Fighters ’97
  • The King of Fighters-A 2012
  • Samurai Showdown II
  • Blazing Star

There’s some pretty good deals in here as a few of these titles were previously $3+. We’ve actually been waiting for a deal like this before picking up a few of our favorites and we’re sure many of you feel the same way. Now go and throw down a few more extra quarters. For old times’ sake.

Deal: has the refurbished 16GB Nexus 7 for $130 [Today Only!] Fri, 22 Aug 2014 12:48:46 +0000 New Nexus 7 hand wm

Looks like has a few more Nexus 7 units than they can carry. The company has yet again put the device on sale as their daily deal. You’ll get a refurbished version of the 16GB model for just $130. The tablet comes with the standard 90-day ASUS warranty so you shouldn’t have any qualms about its potential history.

The Nexus 7 2013 is sure to be outclassed by some very exciting tablets coming up at the end of this year, though without an accurate picture of what each manufacturer is working on (including HTC’s supposed 8-inch tablet for Google) $130 isn’t a bad price to upgrade your mobile life in the short term. The deal lasts today only, or until all stock is sold — whichever comes first. Oh, and there is a limit of 3 units per customer (which is actually on the high side, we imagine) so keep that in mind if you were looking to buy a boatload.

Unlock 6 amazing Sega games for only $3.79 in the latest Humble Bundle for Android (more coming soon) Wed, 20 Aug 2014 22:04:59 +0000 Humble Sega Bundle

As affordable as they are, Humble Bundle’s DRM-free game sales have a tendency of emptying our wallets. Not only because they typically offer the best games for Android, but because it’s all for a good cause as well. Today, the “Humble Sega Mobile Bundle” went live, offering up a curated list of some of Sega’s greatest.

For the first 3 titles – Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode I, ChuChu Rocket!, and Virtua Tennis Challenge — you can pay whatever you like. But if you’d like a little more bang for your buck, you can pay higher than the average (currently at $3.78) to pick up Sonic & SEGA All-Star Racing, Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II and Crazy Taxi. Because this is the Humble Bundle, additional Sega titles will be unlocked at a later date (keeping my fingers crossed for Jet Set Radio) which will then be added to your account at no extra charge.

There’s 2 ways you can go about doing this. The first is by heading to Humble Bundle’s site here and making a donation through PayPal. We’d recommend creating a quick account to keep track of all the titles in your little bundle (we’re sure you’ll be back for more later). After that, you can download the Humble Bundle Android app to view your new growing library of games, which will handle downloads and any updates that arrive later. You can find a brief video trailer down below and just after that, a link to the Humble Bundle app on Google Play. Cheers.
