With Bungie's leap to next-generation platforms and interstellar space closer to home, I wonder if E.T. is out there somewhere.

While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

So, I finally broke down and joined modern society and got in on this whole "smart phone" craze.

After removing a bunch of bloated junk that came with it, the screens are looking kinda bare. I was looking for some games and other type of stuff to put on there but after browsing the store it looks like a staggeringly vast amount of things that are just complete absolute shit.

Dozens of "runner" type games, clone after clone, games that I'm surprised have not been sued for copyright infringement (so many mario ripoffs) and so on. Just a lot of stuff that looks like it was slapped together in 5 mins to run commercials and sell gems/coins/jewels/testicles for RL money.

What are some decent games? I have a few criteria though..1,) the game cannot have "in-app" purchases that effect the game itself. Spending money to unlock cosmetic stuff I can ignore, Spending money to unlock levels I cannot. 2.) the game cannot have an excessive amount of ads that play. I can understand a totally free game have some ads now n then, but one that stops your game every 60 seconds is not ok.

Also, any other useful apps. Something for news maybe? Music? Just remember I'm domesticated now, so no fuck apps or whatever you kids use these days.

(p.s. it's an android phone)

Thanks!

MX Player is the best video player and even has hardware decoding.

I use Rocket Player for music.

The only games I play on my phone are emulated Nintendo games. I have like 6 different emulators though and not a specific one to suggest.
