Nexus 7 review for gamers

Posted by Dan Mousavi On August - 31 - 2012

Google finally released the Nexus 7 here in Germany and now a lot of people ask me if I can recommend it as an android gaming device. So let’s take a look under the hood of the newest device from Google. I ordered the 8GB version, because I thought that would suffice since it’s enough on my phone. Boy was I wrong, since I always used big SD cards I never realized how much space the additional data that is outsourced there takes up. In reality the 8GB version gives you 5.5 GB to install stuff and if you hit 500MB you get a warning that some services won’t sync anymore. So you have 5GB and the limit for games on the Android market is 2GB, go figure. You can’t install more than 2 or 3 big games on the device and since you will probably want to play high end Tegra games on it, you will uninstall and reinstall the games a lot. I doubt that even the 16GB Version would be big enough for daily usage for me, but at least you could install a handful of different games on it. I’ll also do this review before I root the device, because that is how most users will use their device. Root would bring additional features like the ability to use Joypads per Bluetooth or screen recording, but it can’t fix some hardware problems on the device.

CAVE is bringing their shoot’em ups to Android

Posted by Dan Mousavi On October - 21 - 2011

One of the first things I wished for on Androidpimps was that CAVE would port their famous shoot’em ups over to Android.
I received a mail that CAVE is starting to release their games today for Android. At first these games will launch in Japan and Korea and a international version will follow soon. Here is a announcement trailer for the first two Android Games ESPGALUDA II and Dodonpachi Resurrection, as well as the links to the asian third party appstore that is already hosting them. The game will also launch on G-gee, Android Market, AU One Market and will work with Android 2.1 devices. A new rendering skip feature was implemented, to keep the game running smoothly on as much devices as possible.

ABOUT THE RENDERING SKIP FEATURE
In order to reduce CPU load which occurs due to device
differences, this function automatically adjusts the timing
and frequency of screen rendering.
Turning this setting ON in the options will allow players to
enjoy these shooters at the best settings for their device
CPU.
