To celebrate the beginning of the pro cycling season (starting with the Tour Down Under in Australia) Recon, maker of HUD devices for athletes, is offering $100 off any of its HUD offerings.

Readers may remember Recon for Jet, the heads-up glasses that run Jelly Bean and compete against the still nascent Google Glass for the hearts and minds of athletes. The glasses debuted last Spring, with “Pilot Edition” units going up for pre-order last June.

Google Play Holiday Sales Round Up – NFS: Most Wanted, Jet Set Radio, and More

Google might have snubbed us officially when it comes to an app sale extravaganza like they have done in the past, but that doesn’t mean there are not plenty of winter sales going on over at Google Play.  Companies such as EA Games, SEGA, and other development teams are putting their apps on sale for [...]

Sega Slashes Prices of its Android and iOS Titles to Under $2

sega-logo

We all love shopping for apps on the respective app hubs. But big ticket developers don’t make it easy on us by charging a premium for their exclusive apps. Mostly ranging from $1.99 to $6.99 these apps don’t go easy on our wallets. And it seems like Sega understands that as the developing house has just announced the price reduction of 26 mobile titles. Most of these are iOS titles, with only five Android titles included in the promotion, and that is because there aren’t many titles on Android, but it should be a welcome addition nonetheless. Games like Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Ep 1, Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Ep 2 and Sonic CD are now selling for $0.99. Jet Set Radio and Total War Battles are priced at $1.99 on the Google Play Store. Japanese developers Sega are originally known for the popular Sonic the Hedgehog and Virtua Fighter series of games. Sega is a well-known name in the video game development as well as the console arena, in the works since the early 80s.

Sega also slashed the prices of 21 iOS titles, which is great news for iOS users. Even here, not all games are down to $0.99. Jet Set Radio, Crazy Taxi and Total War Battles will cost $1.99 while the rest of the 18 games will only cost $0.99 till the promotion lasts. The sheer number of iOS apps by Sega in comparison to Android apps is alarming. It is immediately clear that Sega has near to 4x more apps on the iTunes AppStore in comparison to the Google Play Store. However most of these games are merely small titles and don’t give too much work for the GPU. This promotion will last till January 3, so we recommend you get as many apps as possible while you can.

sega-games-promotion

App developers are taking to the holiday season to slash the prices of their titles. Not only does this increase the number of sales of the apps, but also makes the app more attractive to almost everybody out there. Plenty of users shy away from apps just because they’re paid and promotions like these go a long way in making them more approachable. Gameloft is known to carry out such promotions as it did last year. This year it has already announced promotions for iOS users although Android users are still waiting for the $0.99 apps to start rolling in. And mind you, these are popular apps like the Iron Man 2, NOVA 3 and the Dark Knight Rises, so it seems like Gameloft gives more bang to the buck compared to Sega.

Jet Set Radio Review: As Funky As Ever, But Controls Are A Grind

nexusae0_unnamed_thumb36Twelve years ago, Sega released a game for its brand-spanking new Dreamcast system that was so stunningly original its influences can still be seen today. Jet Set Radio (Jet Grind Radio for US gamers) became an instant sleeper hit, and has earned its cult classic status. The impressive, stylish visuals, unique gameplay and awesome music are still remember fondly by my generation. Now that Android hardware has caught up to and in many ways surpassed the old beige box, Sega has re-released Jet Set Radio for the mobile world. You can pick it up on the Google Play Store for $4.99.

Review: Jet Raiders is Beautiful Top-Down Flying Shooter

Jet Raiders  
Developer: Liberty Technologia Sp. z o.o.  
Price: $0.99   Download

The and iPad have opened up an entire new world for gaming over the past few years and as their processing power and graphics have improved so have the being developed for them. One such that shows off stellar graphics that really pop off the screen is Jet Raiders, a flying adventure through detailed and beautifully crafted levels.

Top-down shooters are a joy to me. I’ve always been a huge fan of of flying, shooting and blowing up things so naturally, I’m already a big fan of Jet Raiders and I don’t think I’ll be alone on this one.

You can always tell when the developers put a lot of time and effort into the game when all those little details such as shadows changing with light, the way objects explode or the ease of maneuverability make your gaming experience that much better. And sure, it’s just details, but in my opinion, there are a lot of games on the App Store that didn’t pay attention to the details and they are subpar, no matter how much potential they had.  (more…)

Raiden Legacy for Android brings four classic shoot ‘em up games for $5 [VIDEO]

This glorious hump day doesn’t just bring cause for celebration because it’s the middle of the week, folks. A new game has hit the Google Play Store that you old-school shoot ‘em up fans can probably appreciate. It’s called “Raiden Legacy” and it features four classic games from the Raiden IP, including Raiden, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2 and Raiden Fighters Jet.

You’re essentially getting 4 games for $5, and each one features that vertically-scrolling top-down  shooting action that used to frustrate the heck out of me in the arcades (yet still somehow compelled me to insert two more quarters every time).

Each game has three different modes to tailor to any playing style, including an Arcade Mode for those who want to go through the entire game limited by artificial “credits” and be forced to start over after losing all your lives, a mission mode for those who just want to jump to their favorite levels, and a training mode for people who suck (like me).

There are 15 different ships in all, and each one has its own characteristics, power-ups, attributes and more. You’ll have everything at your disposal, from your standard stream of rail gun bullets to nuclear charge shots that’ll allow you to clear the screen if thins get a bit too hot.

DotEmu has implemented two control schemes — fast touch and a classic scheme — for easy playing, and also allows you to put any necessary controls anywhere you want on the screen. An auto-fire mode will have your ships spraying bullets, lasers and bombs without much effort from you so you can instead focus on dodging those pesky fireballs.

Two difficulty modes will be available to you as DotEmu humorously gives us medium and hard mode — there’s nothing easy about these games, so keep that in mind before throwing down $5. It’s a constant test of your reflexes and peripheral vision, but it’s a fun experience to be had for just $5 if these sorts of games pique your interest. Go ahead and give it a try in the Google Play Store, and be sure to watch our hands-on video above to get an idea of what to expect.

[New Game] Raiden Legacy Blasts Its Way Into The Play Store

unnamedIf you’re old enough to remember a time when arcades blanketed the landscape, you probably also remember Raiden. This top-down scrolling shooter debuted in 1990 and attracted legions of fans. Now more than 20 years after it showed up in an arcade cabinet, you can play Raiden and its three sequels on your Android device courtesy of DotEmu.

This single download contains the original Raiden, Raiden Fighters, Raiden Fighters 2, and Raiden Fighters Jet. All these games follow the tried-and-true formula of shooting absolutely everything that appears on the screen. There are 15 ships to unlock and take into battle, each with unique weapons and abilities.

Jet Set Radio Hits the Play Store

We gave you the heads up a couple of weeks ago about the 12-year old game that was originally released on the ill-fated Sega Dreamcast. Today is the day to get your retro tag and grind on – jet set, in-line skate style on your Android device. Cell-shaded games were all the rage back in the late 90′s and early 00′s. Now, those feeling a little nostalgic can go back in time and enjoy a faithful port of this niche game.  

 

In the game itself, you use in-line skates to troll around town and mark or ‘tag’ your territory with graffiti all while performing flips and tricks.The game now features high-resolution graphics and has also been optimized for touch screens on our devices. The game will feature 10 playable characters and you’ll be able to rock out to the same in-game tracks as the original game. It will set you back 5 bucks, but the game is definitely different than others out there.

Android Community Nightly: November 29th, 2012

Welcome to the first of many Android Community Nightlies we’ll be enjoying together in the future. No, we aren’t talking about the latest CM or AOKP nightly ROM build either. Instead we’ll be focusing on one simple post each evening to let you catch up and enjoy all the Android news from the day. So with that we’ll jump right into today’s Android Community Nightly full of new games, Android 4.2.1 and more.

We’ll start with hardware and jump into the many different bits of software and game news that happened today. The Samsung Galaxy Note II from Verizon became available today in stores and online, then Samsung announced their Galaxy S Advance would be enjoying Android 4.1 Jelly Bean come January. Hopefully by January Samsung will have updated all their Galaxy S III, Note II’s, and many of their recent Galaxy Tablets too.

Then probably the most exciting and nostalgia filled news today was the release of Jet Set Radio for Android. Can you say awesomeeee! Following that we also received a price drop for the official Predators game for Android too — which is almost as awesome as Jet Set Radio. In other game news Angry Birds Star Wars received an update with the HOTH, 20 new levels, and Princess Leia even was included. Other software news includes YouTube adding more languages to their closed caption support, and Samsung’s remote app Peel getting an expansion.

Consumer reports came out with their report on carriers and networks today, and as usual Verizon took first place while AT&T is in dead last — again. I wonder if they should start docking Verizon points for being slow to release devices, and the worst when it comes to Android updates. In other news Google Play is slowly gaining ground on Apple’s App Store, and Amazon’s own 3rd party store received a quickie software update too.

In more Google and Jelly Bean news the folks from Mountain View released the Android 4.2.1 factory images for the Nexus 4, 7, and Galaxy Nexus — so that’s good news. Speaking of Google, Maps Navigation is now available in Mexico, and Google’s trying to develop software that will guess what you might search before you even search it — or think it — creepy right? That is some big brother stuff but at the same time I love where technology is headed. This is only the beginning!

To wrap things up this evening Zynga released a rather fun game called Clay Jam, Sharp is releasing their own 5-inch 1080p smartphone next month, and Google showed us an awesome company that made an app that does Instant Google Street View searches. For any and all Android news that you might have missed this afternoon, click any of the multiple links above to get your daily Android fix!

See you tomorrow!

Jet Set Radio now available on Google Play Store

Those looking for some good old retro gaming will be pleased to know that Jet Set Radio has officially gone live on the Google Play Store. Players have been looking forward to this port for quite some time, with Sega announcing the Android version way back in July. It’s here at last, and it’s got a fresh coat of high resolution paint to boot.


If you owned the short-lived Sega Dreamcast, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve already played Jet Set Radio. Known as Jet Grind Radio in the US, the game quickly became one of the most popular titles ever released for Sega’s ill-fated console. Now Jet Set Radio is getting another chance at life, giving both longtime fans and newcomers to the game a new way to experience the fan favorite.

This isn’t just a straight port, though, as Sega has made a number of improvements to the original game. Not only have the visuals been given a bump up in resolution, but Sega has also added some new functionality exclusive to mobile devices. Using the camera on your handset, you can take pictures and then place them in the game as graffiti. Sega also says that 29 of the original 30 songs are still present in this new version of Jet Set Radio, so if you were a big fan of the music, then you’ll be happy to know that most of the songs are still present in this release.

Jet Set Radio requires that you’re running Android 2.2 or above and will set you back $4.99. Just one warning, though: the total size of the game comes in at 587MB, so it’ll be taking up a significant amount of space – something to keep in mind if your phone only has 8GB of internal storage and you’re not using a microSD card. You can find Jet Set Radio on the Google Play Store right this minute [download link], and be sure to let us know if you’re picking it up!

Sega’s Jet Set Radio is a half-gigabyte, $4.99, and available now

Jet Set Radio

I'm not normally one to worry about the size of Android applications these days. Twenty megabytes? Download without thinking. Fifty? Sure. Why not?

Sega's much-anticipated Jet Set Radio, however, clocks in at a whopping 587 megabytes. Not exactly a record or anything, but this sucker's big. Took about 8 minutes from download to first push. 

This game is worth the $4.99, though. If you're into the skate culture at all, you'll find something here. The premise, if you're new to the game, is that you're a "Rudie" in Tokyo-To, with magnetically-driven in-line skates. They're powered by some sort of "netrium" battery — and you're powered by Jet Set Radio, "a pirate radio station manned by the DJ Professor K that plays nothing by non-stop hardcore music." And you skate around, tagging stuff and giving the finger to the man — all that jazz.

Gameplay is pretty good. You get the feel of the on-screen joystick easily enough (and I've never been a big fan of those). The four-button layout is simple, and the tutorials get you going. The graffiti tagging gets a little more intricate as time goes on, so pay attention to that.

Hit the download link above to give it a go (again, remember, it's $5, so keep in mind that 15-minute refund window if this isn't your thing), and we've got promo video after the break.

Feed your nostalgia with today’s release of Jet Set Radio for Android

Sega gave us a pretty early heads up that it was coming, but the wait is over and you spray-painting bladers can get to town. I’m talking about none other than the re-release of Jet Set Radio for Android. This Dreamcast original was one of Sega’s finest titles back when the console was still relevant, and while the series proved thin for sequels many still stand by its fun music-pumped gameplay.

The overall goal is to claim areas of Tokyo-to by tagging them as any hoodlum would, all the while treating the world as your skate park as you grind on railings, steps and do more tricks with the inline skates sitting on your feet. You can tag areas with many of the game’s presets, or create your own if you want to express yourself even more freely.

You can also recruit more than 10 different members to your gang and have them tag it up with their own style. Police don’t take kindly to any of this, though, so you’ll also be looking to evade them as you make your presence known to your rivals.

Sega says 29 out of the original 30 tracks are still in the game, though they weren’t interested in telling us which track was left out. We’re sure licensing issues are to blame, but 29 out of 30 is still great and it will do well to help restore fond memories of sweeter gaming days.

The $5 asking price is not unreasonable for a decent port so we’re sure a few of you diehards won’t have a problem with getting it from the Google Play Store. Let us know how it’s treating you if you decide to strap the blades on.

SEGA classic Jet Set Radio hits Android

One of those momentous lifetime events has just happened. Game publisher SEGA has launched Jet Set Radio for Android. That’s one of the all-time most culty of cult titles from the amazing old Dreamcast console, now playable on the average mobile telephone. Incredible.

Android Jet Set Radio comes with an asking price of £2.99 attached to it, which is substantially less than the £69.99 we paid for an imported copy of the Japanese version a little more than 10 years ago. Here’s PROGRESS in action on Android:

jet-set-radio-android-1

jet-set-radio-android-2

The Android version of JSR has even been updated a little, with SEGA’s coders adding in camera support for importing your own shots, plus touchscreen controls for the graffiti drawing parts of the game.

We doubt it’ll be as much fun on a touchscreen, but it’s still got to be better than most of the stuff out there. Get it here.

[New Game] Sega’s Jet Set Radio Lands On Android With Original Music And New Mobile Controls

unnamedIf you’ve ever enjoyed a game with cartoony cell-shaded visuals, graffiti, and an incredible attention to licensed music, you’ve got Sega’s Jet Set Radio (Jet Grind Radio in the original Dreamcast US version) to thank. There are more than a few gamers who keep the ol’ beige box plugged in just for this little gem. But now they don’t have to: Jet Set Radio is available for Android today, and it’s just five bones in the Google Play Store.

For those of you who were too young to remember the Dreamcast, Jet Set/Grind Radio loosely fits into the action genre. Your cartoon character rollerblades around a futuristic Tokyo, hitting assigned spots with graffiti, grinding on rails and other environmental areas, and avoiding or defeating the local cops.

Samsung Movies UK coming to an end, final screening on December 15th

DNP Samsung Movies UK closing its doors on December 15th

After over a three year run,the Acetrax-powered Samsung Movies is about to fade to black. We received an email advising UK subscribers that the service will no longer be available as of December 15th and that its website would drift into oblivion. It’s uncertain if this will affect customers in other European territories, but Acetrax references its plans to offer extended service for those looking to continue after Samsung Movies officially meets its maker. In addition to deep-sixing the service, the gloomy message advises that support has ended for the Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S, Wave, S8300 Tocco Ultra Edition, S7350 Classico, M7600 Beat DJ, i8910 HD and Jet. Check out a snapshot of the customer email after the break.

Sega Confirms Release Date For Jet Set Radio

Jet Set Radio, the 12-year-old Sega Dreamcast title, has seen numerous adaptations on several platforms. Today we learned Sega plans to release the Android, PlayStation Vita and iOS versions later this month. Vita users will get fist crack at it on November 20th. Android and iOS users will have to wait a little longer for a November 29th release. Not quite the summer release Sega had promised back in July, but if it’s the faithful port of the original Dreamcast, I doubt too many people will mind.

Hit the break for the game trailer.

SEGA’s Jet Set Radio coming to Android on November 29th

Jet Set Radio

Some of you weren't even alive when Jet Set Radio was released for the SEGA Dreamcast in June of 2000. That being said, if you've played Borderlands (or other cel-shaded graphics games) you can thank JSR for being one the pioneers of that style. Anyway, the game has been re-released in HD for Xbox Live, the Playstation Network, Windows, and like we reported earlier, is coming to Android. Granted, November 29th isn't exactly "this summer" like the original press release stated, but better late than never right?

While currently there has been no mention of price for Android (or iOS) it's currently $9.99 on Steam, so it's pretty safe to say it shouldn't cost more than that. If you'd like to check out more screenshots, head on over to their Flickr gallery.

Sega’s Jet Set Radio finally gets an official release date for Android

This image has no alt text

Released back in 2000 for the Sega Dreamcast, Jet Set Radio has long held the top spot as one of my top 10 favorite video games of all time. Yes, it’s that good. To say I was ecstatic when the HD remake was finally released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles a few weeks ago is an understatement. But, as so often is the case with console titles, my busy “on-the-go” lifestyle doesn’t afford me the luxury of sitting on my couch for more than 10 minutes at a time.

You can imagine my excitement when I learned that the Sega/Smilebit classic would also be making its way to Android and although we didn’t have an actual release date back when we first told you guys about it (summer has long come and gone), today we finally have a firm date to peg on the title. Mark your calenders for November 29th and get ready to skate, grind, and graffiti your way across a cel shaded Tokyo. This has got to be one of the best years ever for Android gamers. Now where’s Crazy Taxi?

Expendable: Rearmed, The Classic Dreamcast "Shoot Everything" Game Is Now On The Play Store For $3

expendabletinyIf there’s one thing that our phones and tablets do really well, it’s play games from the 90s. And if there’s one thing that games from the 90s do really well, it’s make crap explode. Expendable: Rearmed (which has nothing to do with Sylvester Stallone) is a third-person shooter set in the distant future where your clone army is being marched in, one at a time, to kill everyone and blow up everything. Things used to be so much simpler, didn’t they?

The game actually looks pretty dang similar to the N64 niche classic Jet Force Gemini. Expendable: Rearmed (a remake  Millenium Solider: Expendable) promises a complete lack of loading times, a host of new achievements, global leaderboards, and every action hero’s two favorite words: “weapons galore.”

Expendable is available on the Play Store for $2.99.

Whether it's a passenger jet, a small aircraft or a state of the art fighter jet there is a load of fun to be had with X-Plane 9.

With a selection of different viewing options you really can tailor the app to suit your needs. Take my word for it – you need X-Plane 9 on your Android phone or tablet.  Features of the app include:
