REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

PREVIEWS Pillars of Eternity Preview
For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Amazon Reportedly Releasing Android-Based Console Later This Year

Posted on Friday, August 9 @ 07:40:29 Eastern by Alex_Osborn

An Android-based gaming console is allegedly in the works over at Amazon, with an expected November 2013 release.

According to Game Informer, inside sources have leaked Amazon's plan to launch an Ouya competitor of sorts later this year. Word has it that it will be available for purchase in time for Black Friday, which is November 29th. 

In addition, the current library of Android games available on Amazon's marketplace will be ready to go with the gaming device. As you might expect, sources also say the console will have a unique controller of its own. Let's just hope it is leagues better than the Ouya game pad.

Do you think this is a wise move by Amazon? Is a dedicated Android gaming console really necessary? Let us know in the comments below, and remember, none of this has been confirmed, so we need to treat this all as rumor for the time being.
