The weather is cooling down, which means more time to play your favorite games! Google is making it easier than ever to download as many mobile games as you want, and somebody at GameStop may be in trouble, because their Black Friday ad has leaked. Also, we have new mobile games for you to check out!
Google Play Update
Have you been enjoying Google Play lately? Well, so have we, and of course, they’ve recently updated it to make it even easier to use.
While we love mobile gaming as much as the next person, most people only keep a phone for the length of their contract, upgrading as quickly as possible. So, you end up having to rebuy and download games every two years or so. Which isn’t cool.
Google is fixing that issue, synchronizing game saves across devices so you can play your favorites on any Android device. In addition to this, they now allow you to save bigger games in the cloud, up to 256KB per game and 1MB per user.
So, in theory, you can transfer your games to the cloud and then just put it on your new phone. Pretty cool, eh?
GameStop Black Friday
Black Friday is right around the corner, and luckily for us it seems that GameStop’s ad has been leaked (keep in mind that these haven’t actually been verified by GameStop, so things could change or be completely different). So what can you expect this holiday season?

Speaking of deals on games, Humble Bundle has one heck of a set-up going on right now, and to top it off, the proceeds benefit charity!
The set is called Humble Bundle with Android 7, and features not only six Android games, but also the desktop version of each (for Windows, Mac or Linux). These include:
- Anodyne, a puzzle game
- Greed Corp, real-time strategy game
- Incredipede, a puzzle game
- Ticket to Ride, a board game
- The Bard’s Tale, role-playing
- Worms 2: Armageddon, tactical artillery
So how much will the bundle cost you? That’s the amazing part – as it’s for charity, Humble Bundle is running a “choose your own price” offer, with the minimum being just $1. This gets you the first four games, but if you pay just a penny more than the average purchase price (which is about $6.14 at the time of this posting) you get all six after you download the Humble Bundle app. For more information and to get in on this amazing deal, head on over to Humble Bundle.
