It was not too long ago that Amazon went after the whole centralized game hub idea for things like leaderboards and achievements. Similar to the newly released Google Play Games service in some ways, Amazon's GameCircle doesn't have all the features that Google's service provides and until now the GameCircle service was completely limited to Amazon devices only and games purchased through Amazon's AppStore.
TwitchTV's application on Google Play will soon be getting an update that will allow you to follow your favorite streamers that you like to watch. It has been well stated that the application has been missing a few key features that users would have liked to have seen when it originally launched and hopefully this is the beginning of bringing some of those features to the app.
The next game to come out of the Mojang camp is a hybrid deck building strategy game called Scrolls.

Back in April Amazon announced that it had some pretty big plans for expanding their AppStore to more countries, 200 or so of them actually. Well it looks like those plans have finally come to life with the AppStore's new update to version 5.0. This expansion doesn't just means you can look at the AppStore in awe and wonder but actually take advantage of all the features it comes with.
A Kickstarter project is now up and running for a rather interesting, and conceptually amazing, application that will allow anyone using graph paper and a pencil to literally draw their own game.

Interesting news today as TwitchTV and Kabam have formed a partnership to bring Kabam game discovery and gameplay to the live game streaming service. This partnership integrates both of those factors not only into the web version of TwitchTV but also into the Android application as well.
Touch Pilot already has one of these apps available on Google Play which allows you to turn your Android tablet into a gaming control to use with your PC when playing flight games.

A source port of the Return to Castle Wolfenstein engine called RTCW4A has landed on Google Play and somehow slid under the radar for over a month without being seen.

Over the weekend the new Google Play APK was ripped apart by the folks over at Android Police and inside the APK's gooey innards were source files for the alleged Google Play Games service we have been talking about on and off for over two years. It looks like Google I/O 2013 will more than likely have an announcement announcing the official Google game center type of service we've all been wishing for.
TestFlight is an interesting service that has been in closed beta for a little while now. What this service does is provide Android developers an area that makes it much more easy to run any sort of public beta for their application or game that they may be working on. Instead of having to put the beta version of your game on Google Play, or provide a self-hosted or cloud-based download and having people manually install your beta, TestFlight allows people to download and install a beta version of your game off the internet and onto their device.
