Remember Cartoon Wars? Well, all the murderous stickman-fighting action you can handle is back in Gamevil's latest title: Cartoon Wars 2: Heroes.

As the self-proclaimed "most complete defense and real-time strategy game of the Cartoon Wars series," CW2 picks up where the original left off, and even adds a handful of features, including new heroes. In CW2 you can develop your stickman hero from six upgradeable characters, learning new skills as you level up.

HTC-One-S-Final

If you want the best phone that T-Mobile has to offer, then you undoubtedly want the HTC One S (our review). And if you want the HTC One S, then you probably want to get it while spending as little money as possible. Good news! If you pick the beasty up from Wirefly over the weekend and use the coupon code HTCONES25, then you'll get it for $125, which is a damn good price for this device (yes, I made a rhyme; no, I didn't do it on purpose).

Sony was among one of the first manufacturers to be completely transparent about bringing Ice Cream Sandwich to its devices. Throughout the process, the company has posted numerous entries on its blog regarding the process, where they were at with various devices, and even offered up downloads of the beta product for advanced users and developers to test out.

With the most recent post, however, comes a bit of bad news: the Xperia Play has been dropped from Sony's ICS upgrade path.

Today, we move yet another teeny tiny step forward to the truly digital future of television. Xfinity has launched the XFINITY TV Player which, aside from a name that's needlessly yelling, gives Comcast/Xfinity subscribers access to a host of television and movies on their Android 2.3+ devices. Both phones and tablets are supported.

The app supports Streampix, so for those of you who sprung for the extra $5/month service, this will give you access to that content, consolidated with all of the other available content on the service, including XFINITY On Demand.

Last Updated: June 5th, 2012

While giving the AT&T HTC One X's firmware a look over, I ran across a a vulnerability that would allow us to gain root access. It turned out not to be all that useful at the time, as another root was released the same day. With the latest 1.85 firmware leak, the previously published root has been fixed, making the one I found earlier useful once again.

Update: AT&T disabled the app installation features of Ready2Go thereby breaking this root process.

The Zeemote is a plucky little device that keeps popping up around these parts. Normally $30, the Bluetooth controller pairs with any Android device to give physical controls to games that would otherwise be touchscreen-only. We gave away a thousand of them, and when I reviewed the little guy, I said it would be great, if it were just a bit cheaper. Well, for this weekend, it is. Use coupon code "JS1MDE12" (no quotes), and the company will knock 50% off the controller, bringing it down to a much more palatable $15.

UDS, the company that brought us Capta (which we loved) and now working on Vavo, has a limited quantity of pads made of what I called "magic alien goo" - a key ingredient used in its products. It's sort of a weird material made in part with polyurethane (PU), which is both sticky and not sticky at the same time - but in exactly the right ways.

I have been playing with a PU pad for the last month or so, and it's now become my trusty gym companion.

Tegra3-23

There's no denying that the Tegra 3-powered HTC One X is one of the hottest phones on the market right now, and NVIDIA general manager Mike Rayfield told analysts this afternoon to look for twenty-nine more to be available before the end of the year. We know that LG's Optimus 4x HD will be one of those, but past that, the sky's the limit. We do know, however that about half of the bunch are slated to be sub-$300 (off-contract) devices that will hit the budget crowd; yeah, we're talking about quad-core budget phones.

Update: You can use this method to unlock the bootloader on version 1.85 if you root using the new exploit found by jcase.

After HTC basically pointed the finger at AT&T for the bootloader situation on the American version of the One X (which is technically the One XL), many an enthusiast voiced their disapproval.
