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.

Charge 13 gadgets at once with this $8 USB Hub Thu, 14 Aug 2014 15:03:34 +0000 13-port usb hub

Gadget lovers will understand the frustration: you go to plug in a gadget to charge or transfer data only to realize that you’ve suddenly run out of USB ports. Before you know it you’re swapping chords and chargers left, right, and upside down until your whole life is a tangled mess. Why not eliminate that pain altogether?

Amazon’s latest round of GoldBox Lightning Deals puts a 13-port USB hub on sale for just $8.75. It’s a simple little brick that can plug into any standard USB 2.0 port, and should you find the need to charge your gadgets without a computer you can pick up a 3.5mm DC cable to use with a wall outlet. The device also has its own dedicated on/off switch in case you want to cut or conserve power without having to unplug everything.

Unfortunately this doesn’t support USB 3.0 speeds, but at such a steal of a price we don’t have much room to complain. The swath of good reviews for the device don’t hurt, either. The lightning deal only lasts for about 5 hours (from the time of this posting) or until all stock is sold so you’ll have to move fast or miss out (buy it here!). Let us know if you’ll be “in for 1″ in the comments below!

Deal: Grab the Amazon Fire TV for $15 off Wed, 13 Aug 2014 18:59:49 +0000 amazonfiretvhomescreen

Amazon Fire TV gives you quick and easy access to Amazon’s ecosystem or music, movies and TV shows, as well as multimedia apps from various third party sources and games from the Amazon Appstore.

Amazon’s prideful accomplishment comes from the second screen experience that can be had with an accompanying Amazon Kindle Fire tablet, a feature that gives you more info on the movies and TV show you’re viewing without having to do much work to dig it up yourself.

For hardware, the device features a quad-core chipset, 2GB of RAM, dual-band WiFi, HDMI-out, support for Dolby Digital Plus surround sound and more. Add a $40 gaming controller and you’ve got yourself a pretty slick piece of kit that can keep you entertained for quite a while.

Our favorite car mount is now 52% off on Amazon but for today only [DEALS] Mon, 11 Aug 2014 22:30:26 +0000 nGroove groovin

It’s been a good couple of years ago since we last told you guys about the Mountek nGroove CD slot car mount for smartphones and phablets. Finding a good, solid car mount is thing to do these days, but we fell in love with Mountek’s design which puts to use that old CD slot gathering dust inside your car. Over years, the car mount has gotten more than enough good use and we find it’s one of the best purchases we’ve made through the years. We absolutely love it.

Normally priced at $25, Mountek’s nGroove CD slot car mounts are the subject of today’s Amazon Gold Box deal. The 24 hour deal sees both the nGroove Grip (picture above) and nGroove Snap (magnetic) discounted a full 36% and 52%, respectively. That’s an insane deal for a product we gave a glowing review back in 2012.

In fact, you can find our review should you still find yourself a little wary of making an impulse buy and while a CD slot design probably isn’t for everyone, it definitely comes in handy should you find yourself streaming all your music from your Android device (I mean, who uses CDs anymore?).

The deal wont last long and is only valid until the end of today. So, if you’ve been looking for a solid car mount (one that wont obstruct your view), links to purchase the Mountek nGroove on Amazon can be found below. Cheers!

Mountek nGroove CD slot car mount ($16)

Mountek nGroove Snap 2 CD slot car mount ($19)

Head to Google Play right here to start browsing.

Moto X $299 back to school sale is extended through tomorrow Wed, 06 Aug 2014 14:52:40 +0000 Motorola Moto X Boot animation DSC00738

Quick heads-up for those of you who weren’t able to get in on the latest Moto X deal that went up last week — you now have until tomorrow to grab an off-contract customized Moto X for as little as $299. That amount will get you the 16GB option. The 32GB version is going for $325, while the 64GB option runs you $375.

Those aren’t bad prices for a phone that can still hold its own to this day. Despite launching with seemingly underpowered internals for its time, the Moto X has proven that you don’t need the most expensive processor and the highest of resolutions to provide a great user experience.

The device’s value-adding features and its lack of a distracting user interface are just two of the many reasons why it’s such a hit. Of course, folks who are more concerned with getting the latest and greatest will want to wait until later this summer to see what Motorola’s planning to do for a sequel, but if you find this price too good to pass up you’ll want to take advantage right now. Head to Moto Maker to get started customizing yours.
