"In other news, Gameloft, after reading Michael's article on game compatibility with the N7 and JB decided they did not want to be caught in his cross-hairs like EA and went ahead and updated their catalog."
This company ticks me off, they have no solidarity...
I want to play through NOVA 1,2, AND THEN 3, and yet they only have NOVA 2/3 on the play store and 1 is only on their own site, and even then its only for select older devices...
I would buy more games from this company if they got their heads outta their arses and got some consistency...
