As Owen Good often reminds us, not every Gaming App of the Day is a good one. For every Bad Piggies, The Room or Bar Story 2 there are a dozen NFL Pro 2013s, and he seems to wind up playing them all.

Oftentimes we'll play gaming apps for our daily spotlight based on our own personal preferences. We'll see something that catches our eyes (like fishhooks) and we'll dive right in. Sometimes, however, we are assigned them, as I kind of did with Owen this week. I mean, he's our sports guy! It's a sports game!

I'm so sorry, Owen.

If it helps, there are at least three picks on this week's list that are spectacular! The Room is one of the best puzzle adventure games I've played in forever, Bad Piggies has those pigs in it, and Kirk's pick has anime people mixing drinks in a bar!

That's what you should do. Go to a bar. Bring your iPhone.

If you have a suggestion for an app for the iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Phone 7 that you'd like to see highlighted, let us know.

A Sexy, Soapy iPhone Game That Also Teaches You To Make Drinks

Bartenders get all the good stories. People often go to bars simply to talk-we need a drink sometimes, to get away from it all, and we hope to find a bartender who will listen long enough to let us get it off our chest. More »

Like the Saints' Bounty System, NFL Pro 2013 is Also a Pay-for-Performance Scandal

Unfortunately, this is not one of those App of the Day writeups where the selection is meritorious and the title is an honor. I'm here to dispense consumer advice about NFL Pro 2013, which provides a lot of enticement given the fact it's free and it has NFL licensing. My advice is to walk around NFL Pro 2013 like it was a swamp. More »

Yet again , this gaming website refuses to show ANDROID apps.

There is A HUGE SALE in the Play Store. HUGE!!!... yet there is what one post mentioning it on Kotaku.com? and its not even to say there is a sale , but rather some game is only 25 cents. Lame Kotaku.

I demand some Android love.. i understand the iphone also needs apps , but include the android apps as well. Which i note bad piggies is fully free on the play store but costs 99 cents on the itunes store.
