Imagine leading a team of highly trained special-ops on a mission to save the world from an evil villain bent on mass destruction. Now imagine those trained professionals have incredible super powers that make them unstoppable. What could possibly make that scenario more awesome? Super seals, that's what. Roll that all into one and you have the premise behind Seal Force, a unique line-drawing game by Nordisk Film Interactive unlike anything else I have ever come across.

I've had an odd interest in the undead for as long as I can remember, and I could make a hipster-esque statement and say that I thought zombies were badass long before anyone else did, but I won't go that far. I've been planning for some sort of zombie apocalypse for quite a while now, so if anything starts to go down, you'll probably be safe with me. Needless to say, I'm also in love with any sort of zombie game and when one comes my direction, it goes up against hard criticism.

Now ordering your Papa favorites is easier than ever, and with the new app you'll have access to everything that can be found on the actual website right at your fingertips.

Popular screen recording app, Screencast, has just received an update with some pretty sweet additions. Those of us who use this powerful app know how awesome it already is, but it just got better with a new time lapse recording feature. I'm sure some users have been waiting for this for some time now, and it sure is welcomed. It'll definitely add a whole new element to app and game demos.
