As you may have noticed lately, we have picked back up some of the series we had running here on the site last year but stopped doing closer to the end of 2014.

We also used to do a round-up of Android games on sale every Wednesday and Friday which we are starting back up due to popular demand.

Recently we posted about the new Need For Speed game heading our way called Need For Speed: No Limits. While the game looks pretty good and everyone is surely resigned to the fact that there will be IAPs in it, since this is EA after all, what may turn a lot of people off from the game before it is even released is the fact that players will have to buy gas.
