There are very few games that I’ve spent as much time on or enjoyed quite as much as Teeny Titans [$ 3.99] from Cartoon Network and Grumpyface Studios. I was absolutely obsessed with Teeny Titans for weeks after it came out, and then once I beat every mission and upgraded every character, I started all over again. The game was THAT fun. In fact, if not for the phenomenal Crashlands [$ 6.99] being released the same year, Teeny Titans was in heavy consideration for our Game of the Year 2016 award. So you can probably imagine the delight that is literally coursing through my veins right now due to Cartoon Network and Grumpyface announcing a Teeny Titans sequel called Teen Titans GO Figure! Get it? Go figure? Because you collect figures in the game! I love it! Check out this awesome trailer.
As you can see, it looks like all of the great parts of Teeny Titans are making a return in the sequel alongside some fun new stuff like the ability to change your figures’ outfits. It’ll also feature a brand new story which is inspired by the upcoming feature film Teen Titans GO! to the Movies which is coming out in July. Fans of the first Teeny Titans will remember that the story and humor in the game was one of its best features, and it looks like we’ll be in store for plenty more of that with Teen Titans GO Figure! I am absurdly excited for Teen Titans GO Figure!, and while it’s slated for a vague summer release once a more specific launch date is revealed we’ll let you know. Until then, feel free to discuss this one in our forums.
Google’s Pixel phones have all been high-end models, but the company may soon switch things up with a mid-range model.
Google plans to roll out its products in India, and that may include a new mid-range Pixel smartphone. That’s according to four sources speaking to the Economic Times, who add that this mid-range device would be made especially for price-sensitive markets like India.
Google is reportedly aiming to launch devices like the Google Home and Google Home Mini at the end of April with prices of Rs 9,999 and Rs 4,999, respectively. The mid-range Pixel device is expected to arrive sometime around July or August.
Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are great smartphones, but because they’re premium models with high-end specs, they’re rather pricey. A mid-range Pixel could help get Google’s smartphones into the hands on consumers that can’t want to or don’t want to spend the money for a flagship-tier model and get them into the Google ecosystem.
Would you be interested a more affordable, mid-range Google Pixel smartphone?
Whether you’re selling phones or powering the platforms behind them, there’s little that’s more exciting for a company seeking out growth opportunities than a rapidly expanding market. As other markets around the globe see slumping projections or sales threatening to plateau, India’s doing gangbusters, and last year sales of smartphones were up 14 percent. This growth hasn’t gone unnoticed, and today we’re checking out some signs of Google’s increasing interest in India, including rumors of a possible new Pixel phone targeting India and other “price-sensitive” markets.

Hello Games, the developer behind space exploration title No Man’s Sky, announced today that the game’s largest update ever will arrive later this summer alongside a launch on the Xbox One. Details about the update, which the company is referring to as No Man’s Sky NEXT, are scarce. It will be free, like previous updates such as last year’s Atlas Rises, which introduced planetary quick-travel, land vehicles, and base building. But beyond that, we don’t know what the update will involve.
“We called this update NEXT, because it’s an important next step on a longer journey for us and the community,” writes Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray. “We’ve been working our socks off on this and it’s by far our biggest update so far. It will be…

Vivid Games is here at GDC 2018 and they have quite a full lineup of new mobile games launching in the next several months. They stopped by our meeting area to show off three of them, and funnily enough all three games have been in soft launch so it’s possible you’re familiar with them in some capacity already. First up is Space Pioneer, which we looked at last July when it went by the name Outer Pioneer. It’s an isometric shooter with a really cool art style and TONS of stuff to loot and upgrade. That one will be launching globally in May. Then we check out Metal Fist which is a platformer/fighting game hybrid that’s just a little bit like something like Super Smash Bros. The cool cast of characters and the interactive environments are the star here, and you can look for this one to officially launch in June. Finally we saw Gravity Rider which is a Trials-esque side-scrolling motorbike game that uses some really cool shifting camera perspectives and is filled with physics-based stunt fun. That one will launch in August, and you can see all three in action in the following hands-on video from GDC 2018.
