What Works Best For The Ouya
Android gaming has its fair share of detractors, and the Ouya suffers from lack of superstar publishers. Yes, games such as Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog and Square Enix's Final Fantasy III may appeal to retro-gaming fans. But as PlayStation and Xbox all make pushes towards indie developers and allowing self-publishing through their consoles, there is mainly a wide spate of Android games pollinating the Ouya. While it doesn't have the robust library of Google Play or of an iOS, the Ouya provides gamers with a host of titles that they have never seen. Organ Trail, a mix of the retro game Oregon Trail and zombies, is an excitingly fun game that is a personal favorite of ours.
Adding Telltale Games' hugely popular The Walking Dead is an extra step in the right direction for the Ouya. By including 2012's Game of the Year and the 400 Days DLC, new players can enjoy a deeply rich and emotional storyline that has been celebrated across the board. As the marketplace continues to develop, this is the best thing that works for the Ouya. Through the controller, gamers can jump-in and out of the games with relative ease and even play local multiplayer. Streaming services such as Twitch allow gamers to keep an eye on the culture in real-time which is a boon for anyone who cannot hop on a plane and go to Cologne, Germany, for Gamescom.
