It's called BloodStroke and sells for only $0.99 at this moment. Your character's name is Lotus, and she is a private security and combat specialist who has been betrayed by her employer. Here's a quote with a description,
We aren't sure if they just licensed his name to help sell the game, or if John Woo actually had much action in the development of this game, but it definitely looks like something that fits his style. Of course, this is the guy who brought us Face Off, Mission Impossible II and many more, so we wouldn't expect anything less with his name headlining it. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Here's a great follow-up story to the one we posted yesterday regarding the rumored Motorola Nexus 6. First, there is supposedly insider intel which supports the idea that Google considered this Motorola Nexus 6 as soon as they sold Motorola to Lenovo.
In fact, according to "people with knowledge of the matter" selling Moto to Lenovo was a huge boon for Google, especially to create a Motorola Nexus device. Google reportedly relishes the idea of pairing some of the core technologies found in Android L with the Active Display and Touchless control tech found in the Moto X.
Additionally, it appears that Google may have ditched their Android Silver plans altogether in favor of this newly refreshed Nexus program. Apparently, the fact that Google’s Chief Business Officer Nikesh Arora (the man who spear-headed Android Silver) has left the company was also a big determining factor in this decision.
Supposedly, Arora and several of the folks on his team had envisioned Android Silver as a replacement for the Nexus and GPe program. Now that he is gone and Motorola is no longer owned by Google, there's nothing stopping a resurgence in the Nexus line instead of shifting gears to the Android Silver program.
Along with this report comes industry speculation that might excite you. Several pundits have pointed out that it is entirely likely Google plans to keep the Nexus 5 along with this new Nexus 6. There's no reason they can't simply do a refresh each year with slightly improved specs to keep up with the advances in technology. This would go against Google's previous procedure of having only one new Nexus smartphone at a time, but the 5.9-inch size of the Moto Nexus 6 could drop it into its own "phablet" category altogether.
This basically means that Shamu probably does not herald the end of the 5-inch form factor. If all of this proves to be true, then we will have the Nexus 5, the Nexus 6, the Nexus 9 and maybe the Nexus 10 if they continue that tablet too.
In many ways this makes much more sense than creating an entirely new branding called Android Silver. The Nexus name is already a well established Google brand. Why fix it if it aint broke?
Finally, there's one other exciting thing about all of this speculation. If Shamu turns out to be true, and Google starts working with Motorola/Lenovo on Nexus products, it could position the new Motorola as the leading global challenger to Samsung and LG in the Android arena.

[Editor's Note: Oops. I forgot to post this here yesterday! Here it is and its follow up story will come soon.]
Definitely take this story with a heaping helping of salt, but the Holy Grail of Android smartphones might be upon us. The newest rumor is that Motorola is working on a 5.9-inch smartphone code-named Shamu, and that device will be the Google Nexus 6 smartphone.
According to this intel, Google felt it would never be viable for them to launch a Motorola Nexus device as long as they owned Motorola. This isn't meant to suggest that was the primary (or even secondary) reason they sold Motorola to Lenovo, it simply means that now they can entertain the possibility, and supposedly Motorola is high up on their list for the next Nexus phone.
On top of this information, we also have word that the phone will come with a fingerprint sensor and will likely launch in November.
We should remain skeptical for now, but feel free to do a secret happy dance when nobody is looking.

There's another cool innovation that the Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch will be known for. According to a Tech Crunch hands-off video (shown above) at Google I/O 2014, the new Moto 360 will be the first Android Wear smartwatch to include an ambient light sensor.
Of course the primary purpose of this is so you won't have to constantly fiddle with the brightness settings in different environments to be able to see your watch-face. The watch will automatically adjust that for you on the fly.
That's just one more way that Motorola is upping the ante and delivering a more premium smartwatch device than anything that has come before. It appears that Motorola isn't even bothering to compete with the current Android smartwatches. Instead they are going straight for the jugular of the as yet un-released, rumored Apple iWatch.
Smart move Moto! Enjoy the video above!

While Samsung's sales have been in a slump, LG seems to be one of the main benefactors as they have a few records of their own this quarter. LG sold 14.5 million handsets this last quarter. This was 20% more than last year and was their highest total ever. (More than one-third of those were LTE models.)
This put an end to three straight quarters of losses and effectively almost tripled their profits. This amounted to an operating profit of KRW 412 billion ($599 million).
According to LG, much of their success was due to the new LG G3 flagship. Kudos LG!

Amazon released their new Fire Phone, and most of the hard-core Android community voiced a collective "meh." Despite the "mediocre-ness" of the device, it does have some truly outstanding features. The main draw is the 3D movement afforded by the phone's six cameras.
The Fire Phone will hit store shelves on July 25th, and Amazon wanted to make sure we were aware that there will be some games available immediately at launch which will take advantage of these unique features. We aren't sure how the new movement capabilities of the device will play out in these games, but here's what Amazon revealed.
To-Fu Fury is a platform-style game whose main character is a ninja tofu. (Who comes up with this stuff?) Here's a video for that game:
The second game is called Saber’s Edge and involves more strategic play in a pirate themed setting. Here's a trailer for it:
Both games are already available for $1.99 on the Amazon Game Store: Amazon Games
