It is a very well-known fact that the Gaming section on the Android Market hardly contains quality’ games. Yes, there are some quality games for Android like Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja but that’s about it. Gameloft does offer some brilliant gaming titles for Android like Dungeon Hunter, Lets Golf HD and H.A.W.X etc. but sadly the company does not list its games on the Android Market. The company sells its games via its own store which is very very bad.
However, all this is soon going to change as EA has started releasing some quality’ games into the Android Market. Today, the company released the Need For Speed: Shift game into the Android Market for only $4.99. Earlier, NFS: Shift was available exclusively for a few Android handsets. EA also plans on bringing more high quality 3D games into the Android Market next year including NFL Madden 2011.
Here is a video of NFS: Shift in action on the Samsung Galaxy S -:

Talking about Gameloft, the company has also released a brand new quality’ game for Android handsets Spider-man: Total Mayhem HD. Users can download the game from the Gameloft store for $4.99. However, looking at the pathetic state of the Gameloft store I would recommend users to stay away from purchasing this game.
Finally, Mac users will get the taste of the Dragon Age Origins Expansion, Awakening. The expansion is released and is available for purchase for Mac.
The expansion Awakening is a 12 hours journey from the Wardens Keep to the boss in the end called Mother. The entire journey will take place in Amaranthine, you will not come in Ferelden. New and powerful enemies will make the fights more exciting, especially the talking Darkspawn. Only one character from Origins will come with you in this journey and rest all will be new.
Bioware announced that they will be releasing the Witch Hunt DLC for Dragon Age Origins. This DLC is supposed to be the conclusion of the Dragon Age Origins storyline.
All the fans of Dragon Age Origins wanted to know what happened to Morrigan (the beautiful mage) in the end of the game. This DLC will reveal all the secrets or more than what you bargained for, as said by Bioware.
According to me, this could be the best DLC of Dragon Age Origins because even after ten months since I started playing this game, I still wonder if the secret of Morrigan could be revealed. The key features in this DLC are:
1) Confront Morrigan in this dramatic conclusion to the Origins storyline
2) Earn powerful rewards that transfer into your Awakening and Origins campaign
3) Import your character from Origins or Awakening or create a new, high-level hero!
The Witch Hunt DLC will be released on 7 September 2010 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. It will cost $7.
I am wondering what will happen in this DLC. If you have played Dragon Age Origins then do comment what you think will happen.
Dragon Age Origins from Bioware was one heck of a super duper RPG. It was crowned as one of the best RPGs till now. Personally, I found it so exciting that I completed that game 10 times. As a Dragon Age fan, I was badly waiting for a glimpse of the upcoming Dragon Age 2. Finally, Bioware has released a cinematic trailer of Dragon Age 2.
The story seems to be completely new and it has no relation between Dragon Age Origins. In the video you can see new weapons, powers and enemies. The game will be releasing on 8 March 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox platforms. You can also preorder it now. Here is the trailer, enjoy!
The second edition of the popular game Battlefield, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 will start retailing on March 2. However, if you cannot wait to get your hands on the game, here is your chance to get a great deal on the PC version of the game.
Barnes & Nobles is selling pre-orders of the PC version of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for $19.95 with shipping extra. This is by far the best deal on the game. Amazon is selling a copy of Battlefield 2 PC game for $49.99, so that is a cool $30 savings on this popular FPS game.
