Following the success of their previous projects Epoch and Epoch 2, Uppercut Games recently unveiled their next game in development entitled Submerged. In the Epoch series, the environment was a post-apocalyptic world where only robots survived to fight a war that never ends. In Submerged, the environment is literally overflowing with action, adventure and a compelling narrative. From the brief synopsis of the game, it appears the storyline will have as much heart as it does action and lush visuals.
For the past few years there has always been at least one attempt by some company to bring glasses-free 3D gaming to Android. When the concept originally came to light a few years ago, a few companies threw their hands into it with Android devices but almost all of them left everyone wanting and the glasses-free 3D part of it was lackluster at best. This year we have a new attempt to bring glasses-free 3D gaming to Android with a device called The W 3D.

Today the Samsung Gead VR headset has gotten three additional games and applications added for it on the Oculus Rift store. To be more specific, there is one new game and two new applications, both of which are something you'll want to download for your headset.
Star Wars The Force Awakens is less than a year away. However when it comes to Android games, Star Wars has been in full force, pardon the pun. 2014 saw multiple game releases along with some game removals. On the cusp of a new generation of Star Wars, we should take a look at what we have been given this year, so we can reflect, and better ourselves as Star Wars enthusiasts.
A new aerial combat game Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders from Atypical Games has flown its way onto Google Play. Is this part of the Sky Gamblers franchise that has been published by Bandai Namco up until now? It appears to be and this is actually Atypical Games' second title in this franchise to be released, the first being Sky Gamblers: Cold War (iOS only right now).
