Android Community Weekly Digest: Jun. 14, 2015

Another week has gone by and things have rather been silent in the Android world, save for a few wrinkles and moans of exasperation in some corners. Can you guess why? Yep, it was Apple's turn to take the stage but even Cupertino could not deny the presence of Android. Or could it? Regardless of intentions, Apple had two surprises for us this week. In the meantime, Sony seems to be flip-flopping a bit and while LG launched its much awaited and much hyped G4 flagship in the US, some mysterious things are happening with it on AT&T and T-Mobile. Weekly Android Community's Weekly Digest for June 8 to 14, 2015.

Elemental Wings takes flight to mix RPG, CCG, and shooters

If you're tired of the usual role-playing or card collecting games on Google Play Store, then Joycity's latest release might be worth a shot. Elemental Wings combines several genres into a single anime-styled game that might just have enough elements to keep it interesting. You have the character building of RPGs, the deck building of CCGs, the fast-paced action of a shooter, and the rare vertical scrolling of a flying game. All of that rolled into one free game, with IAP options sprinkled everywhere, of course.

YouTube Gaming is Google’s version of vicarious gaming

The social aspects of gaming have evolved quite strangely as Google itself recalls. It first started out with sharing controllers or keyboards at home, which later gave way to LAN parties and now online multiplayer, though controller sharing has also become virtual, like Sony's Share Play feature. The strange part comes from the new breed of social activity that has grown around gaming that doesn't involve playing the game at all. Let's Play videos, walkthroughs, speedruns, and the like. Google is now going to capitalize on that trend with YouTube Gaming, a corner of YouTube's world that's dedicated specifically to dethrone Twitch.

Cyanogen brings its game on with Playphone partnership

Cyanogen, Inc. is expanding its anti-Google Android army, this time with a rather unexpected addition. Most of its previous deals have been to replace core functionality offered by Google's apps and services. This time, however, its partnership with Playphone provides a rather niche feature that isn't easily found in default Android: a social gaming experience. Now owners of the relatively few Cyanogen OS devices can experience a slightly different gaming setup, connecting with both friends and strangers to discover new games and maybe new friends as well.
