Games.lol – The Best Way to Play Android Games on Windows PC

As gaming companies put their focus more on developing games for mobile devices like Android phones, there are now several great games available for smartphone devices. Some of these games can even compete against PC games when it comes to gameplay, overall experience, and graphics. But despite the improvements in mobile games, it still can’t compare with the overall experience that PC gaming offers. Playing games on PC is just slightly better because of several reasons. One reason is that games are much easier to control using the mouse and keyboard instead of touchscreen devices. Another reason is that the PC also has a bigger monitor, which enhances gamers’ experience and allows them to play certain games much better. This is why some people still prefer playing games on PC because o...

In-App Purchasing falters as Freemium In-App Advertising Rises

“This suggests that – as we have previously noted - the early days of life are absolutely vital when it comes to ‘converting’ Freemium players on mobile.

The Jamaica Gleaner now has Cloud Based Games on its website

Panem et circenses  (Bread and Circus Games) Juvenal, Satires, X It appears that The Jamaica Gleaner has finally decided to get its game head on as it’s slowly fading out of the Media Game. The Jamaica Gleaner apparently is getting into Games in modest way, launching Cloud Gaming Flash-based versions of popular The Jamaica Gleaner Newspaper Games, namely: Trivia Jumble Sudoku Crossword The Games are fairly simple and involving, especially the Crossword, which I use to play a lot in the past. The rest are also equally intriguing, albeit I’d prefer more Jamaican Trivia Questions than Americans ones, as I could barely last a minute in Trivia. Sudoku great and so is Jumble, just like in the newspaper. I especially love the fact that both the Crossword and th...

Android Market re-branded Google Play in a effort to better showcase digital content

Google has re-branded Android Market in it's latest effort to attract a bigger piece of the digital pie. With services like Google Music, Google Books etc it seemed that the big G was splinttered and unorganized agaist the likes of iTunes and Amazon who have more streamlined and accessible systems. Google Play is (hopefully) the fix for that and will cover Google's music, books, movies, apps and gaming offerings under one umbrella and recognizable name. Google is still playing catchup however but with Android devices being so popular all over the world it may be a stroke of genius. Starting today, Android Market, Google Music and the Google eBookstore will become part of Google Play. On your Android phone or tablet, we’ll be upgrading the Android Market app to the Google Play Store ...

Casual Games Coming to Google+

The Google+ train continues to roll with the announcement that casual games are coming to buzzing (no pun intended) social network. Casual games like Farmville are a big part of what makes Facebook so addictive and Google, not surprisingly, is wasting no time in introducing gaming to Google+. The implementation is promised to not be as chaotic as in Facebook as games will be confined to one universal tab when users can choose to access rather than beating back pigs and chickens from their profile pages. A phased rollout is underway as more and more users are reporting the appearance of a shiny new game tab on Google+. Below is an excerpt of what Google's Blog had to say about the addition of games to Google+: Today we’re adding games to Google+. With the Google+ project, we want to...
