Gaming on Android devices, both smartphones and tablets and whatever else you can run Android on. Also discussion about controllers, cases and whatever other peripheral devices you have hooked up.
But mostly discussions and updates about awesome new games. As most of us have been gamers in the Golden Age Before F2P mobile games, we tend to focus our attention on games that you can just buy and play or titles that don't punish you for not spending money. Obviously there's lots of great games, but here's a list of relatively old games that will run on just about any low to midrange phone:
Another Case Solved. It's a match 3-or-more puzzler much of the time, but there's objectives within that, and the main cases have other game elements as well. Free with in-app purchases, but that's just for more candy, the premium currency that you can earn in the game.
Both the Kingdom Rush games (first one, second one) are great if you like tower defense. Some IAP but I doubt I spent more than $10-15 for the both of them. Galaxy on Fire 2 is pretty fun. It's basically an Elite space ship style game. I think I spent 5$ on it so far and I'm not seeing anything where I'm going to have to fork over a bunch of money any time soon. Plants vs. Zombie 2 is free and they just added stuff. The IAP is pretty optional if you're good at the game. Major Mayhem is a good little rails style shooter. Don't think I have spent anything on it TBH. Reaper was some good fun. It's a premium title but IIRC it's pretty cheap. Sort of a sidescroller RPG. Kind of hard to explain though.
A significant number of awesome games debuted Android ports in Humble Android Bundles; it's worth keeping an eye on them.
Also, also! I paid my $10 and am downloading the beta of Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition onto my Nexus 7 AT THIS VERY MOMENT. The developer says to wait for a few more updates before trying a full playthrough, but one guy says he did a speed run of the main quest without any show-stopping issues. Excitement!
Perhaps we could generate a new list? And: where do you get your Android gaming news from? I just follow reddit.com/r/AndroidGaming and there's always a few recommendations in my friendly local gaming magazine.
