What are some good recommendations?
Is a galaxy SIII good for emulation?
I bought an xperia play when it was still new.
It's never broken so I've never replaced it, it has an extended battery too. Goes about a week between charges.
It plays anything up to gen 5.
along with jetpack joyride, tilt to live, emulators
Here's the deal /v/, I've got an LG G2 and I don't game much on it, not being too much a fan of mobile games other than emulators, and I don't feel like carrying a dualshock around with me. Nvidia's shield tablet comes out next week. I've got $350 to blow. Shield Tablet and controller or 3DS and games?

S3 should be fine as long as you have a controller.
You're outdated man. Newer devices can run Dreamcast and PSP at full speed
Final Fantasy III, maybe the best game on Android. They remade the entire game in 3D and it's awesome, really really fun.
Square-enix has released all the NES and SNES Final Fantasy (the VI is the last one), also Dragon Quest VIII and other games made for android.
Rockstar has released GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas, also Max Payne. But they're quite difficult to play with touch
Change graphics settings maybe. I can get both Mega Man games and the BlazBlue games to run at near full speed with only 1GB of RAM on a dual core device
>there will never be a Bad Piggies 2
The only good thing to come out of Angry Birds
it's this weird game when you drive around to real life landmarks or locations of interest and creepily sit there for like five minutes while you pretend to hack a "portal" there to control it for your given team.
>tfw got an iphone 4 (for free) to replace a broken xperia
Is there ANYTHING worth playing on an iphone?
Clash of Clans and Plants vs Zombies 2
The former's only P2W comes from building things faster. The latter has a few plants and bonuses inaccessible unless you buy them, but they're not necessary
I'm currently playing Chaos Unleashed on my Moto G. Looks like p2w and very repetitive but fun so far.
Assuming you can't get/don't want a controller, try DS instead. There are plenty of touch-based games that transitioned flawlessly to mobile. Animal Crossing, Brain Age, Nintendogs, WarioWare Touched, Kirby Canvas Curse, Elite Beat Agents, Yoshi Touch n Go, the list goes on
look at this qt 3.14
But of course, I prefer to emulate classics on my phone.
You can get the Moto G for less than $160. It's pretty much the best bang for your buck out there.
And it runs PSPPP nicely too.
I've been wanting to upgrade to the S5 just for the fuck of it, but I can't justify the purchase when this awesome little piece of hardware does everything I need.
This, Valkyrie Crusade and Devil Maker
Using that Sixaxis app on my G2 and a brand new Sixaxis controller i get about half a second input lag playing any game, PS1 emulated or native android. The controller is lag free when using it to navigate the phone.
>not just buying a cheap Chinese handheld for $99
>that horrible control setup
I don't own a PS3 controller nor a PS3
I've got a Nexus 5. All the games on the Android store look like shit. Pretty much every "free" title has hidden micropayment shit or needs access to your entire phone just to play a shitty Poker app.
Anyone have any good recommendation of free games that don't feel the need to access my emails/contacts/calls/sms?
Does anybody still play Sanic Dash? It's the last game I was playing on my tablet
>needs access to your entire phone just to play
What you scared of, white boiiii?
Go get Cytus and Deemo you nignogs
Best rhythm games on mobile.
Pic related, its favorite song
The games i have installed right now are
2 nice roguelikes
Its not a roguelike but its fun and simple. You need to pay to get past the 20th floor or so. You can replay it anyway.
>Love Live! School Idol Festival
That waifu rythm game /vg/ shits itself for. Its fun and you only need to pay if for some reason you want to play 100 songs in a row nonstop and try to top the global scoreboard. Which does nothing at all
I just installed Grabatron and Vector, gonna try those and report back
Oh and also i had Princess Punt installed but i just uninstalled it because meh, kinda grindy.
Enlightened brother. What a glorious time we live in to spread the knowledge of infinite human potential.
Don't buy a Samsung phone. They like to lock bootloaders now with the excuse of "now you don't need a high-security work phone" for people in Silicon Valley, even though the protection means diddly-dick now.
As a guy who's worked with the Android API, I have no idea how something this complex is even fucking possible. Shit broke on me when I tried to use things as simple as faders.
I wonder if mobiles will get 7th gen ports. Can they even run a 1:1 port of a 360/PS3 game? I remember hearing that the top of the lines smartphones are still behind old consoles, as the PS3 had 250~ gflops, and the S5 has 160~ gflops, something like that.
>not a single mention of badland
seriously get that shit, it's a great game and there's nothing that's locked behind a paywall. The worst you have to face is an ad every couple levels if you don't have adaway
I found this
I forgot how to add them but i remember something about turning on dev mode or something in the settings
>buying a cheap Chinese handheld for $99
>Not just buying a PSP-3000 for $99
They already have bub. Vitas power is comparable to a tegra 3, Nvidia shield came out last year and is tegra 4. Plus the fact every phone now has more than 1 gig of ram while the vita only has 512mb.
Technically speaking. But any emulators have to handle the hardware AND software, so the performance is cut drastically no matter how powerful it is. Also, how goes it with the back facing lock/power button? I imagine that takes some getting used to.
>Knights of Pen and Paper
>Real Racing 2
Pretty much the only games I constantly keep on my phone. I feel like ios had better games (When I had an itouch last year)
In short yes.
Current gen phones are easily more powerful than the vita, but it depends on how well the games and emulators are optimized for the phone. And of course how much work a dev wants to put into a $7 app
Does anyone have a working hack tool for Summon Masters?
I played a metric fuckton of Puzzles and Dragons, then backed out when I realized how much effort had to be put forward after Castle of Saten.
Seriously holy fuck that game requires so much.
>not playing the superior pac man PaD clone
