continually limited Android support, but that doesn't mean we don't enjoy their games. If you share our compulsion for the classics of 2D gaming, you can now run arcade games designed for the CP System 2 with CPSEmu, another project from the developers behind the Neo Geo emulator NeoDroid. It works like any standard Android emulator, which means you won't be seeing it on the Android Market any time soon. Download it from this XDA thread.

Android Humble Bundle, raising almost $800,000 for developers and charities like the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Child's Play. To celebrate, the organizers have thrown in a fifth game, Toki Tori, an updated version of Two Tribes' classic puzzle/platformer. New purchasers can access Toki Tori after paying, and those who have already bought the bundle can download the new game via their unique link. To get the bonus game World of Goo you still need to pay more than the average, now sitting at $6.12.

Yesterday they noted that their free game had been magically posted to the Android Market for all to download. And pay for. To someone else. Naturally, they felt a little betrayed.
mobile Steam app was released last week for iOS and Android. (At least until they tried to log in and found out they weren't part of the inner Beta circle.) But now it seems that dozens of unofficial Steam apps, including the pretty awesome application from IBF Programs featured on Android Community a month ago. There's no word from Google or Valve, the creators and administrators of Steam, but it's a good bet that the publisher and retailer has at least some say in the proceedings.

a job listing on Microsoft's website pointed towards a possible Xbox Live app for Android devices. That's looking more and more likely: a Microsoft spokesperson recently indicated that the company was looking to expand the social and remote features of the Xbox 360 with more mobile platforms. That would be a major boon to those who use a combination of Microsoft hardware on the console gaming side of things and Android (or iOS) on mobile - and given the high sales of both, that's a large section of that particular Venn diagram.
