Star Wars Angry Birds Hoth update lands tomorrow

A few years back, it seemed that every Star Wars game had the infamous Hoth level. Hoth showed up so many times in video games that critics and fans alike began to grow tired of it quickly, so these days, we don't see the old ice planet show up as often. That's all set to change tomorrow, when Rovio releases the first update for Angry Birds Star Wars.

Green Throttle Games introduces the Atlas controller

As if one Android gaming controller today wasn't enough, Green Throttle Games has revealed its new Atlas controller. Like the other Android controllers before it, the Atlas looks to solve the problem of touchscreen controls in mobile gaming, but there are a few little quirks that make the Atlas stand out. For one, Green Throttle Games is actually making some first-party titles that will be compatible with the Atlas, so there will be at least a few Atlas-enhanced games ready to go from the start.

MOGA Android gaming controller lands at AT&T

Officially called the MOGA Mobile Gaming System, it's available at a ton of AT&T stores across the nation today.

Activision Anthology arrives on Android with 45 classics in tow

Ready for some nostalgia? Hopefully you are, because Activision has just unleashed the Activision Anthology on the Google Play Store. The anthology features 45 classic Activision games, and though the app is free, you're going to have to shell out cash for most of the titles Activision is touting in this release.

OUYA will offer rooting instructions to consumers

The OUYA team has a lot of promises to fulfill once they actually deliver the console, one of the big ones being the promise that OUYA will be the first completely open console. Previously, OUYA developers were given the option of receiving a rooted console (when it eventually releases, that is), but the OUYA team has just sent out an update saying they'll be providing instructions for rooting to everyone. This means that consumers will be able to root their machines at their leisure, with OUYA also offering "builds and instructions" to get consoles back to their "unrooted" factory settings.

Android Community Weekly: July 22nd, 2012

This past week was a pretty good one if you're a Nexus S owner, but not so good if you've been trying to get your hands on the Google Nexus 7. Google began sending out Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates to Nexus S phones on select carriers Friday night, but unfortunately earlier in the week the company announced that it was having some trouble keeping 16GB Nexus 7 tablets in stock. As a result, the 16GB Nexus 7s now have an estimated delivery time of 3-4 weeks when shipping from the Google Play Store, so unless you're okay with picking up an 8GB model instead, you might be left waiting for a Nexus 7.
