Behold Studios new sci-fi RPG 'Galaxy of Pen & Paper' launches onto the Play Store

Behold Studios has just released Galaxy of Pen & Paper onto the Play Store. It costs $4.99, and there are no advertisements or in-app purchases. While many may remember the fiasco that Paradox Interactive created when converting Knights of Pen & Paper 2 to a free-to-play game, I would like to make it clear that Galaxy of Pen & Paper is being handled by the original developer of the series. That is right, Behold Studios is back behind the reins and have adamantly stated that Galaxy of Pen & Paper will stay a premium priced game.

It's been a busy year for Samsung's mobile payments system. While the Korean company has continued to add new regions, it has also introduced PayPal integration and Visa Checkout compatibility in the US. Samsung has also made the service available for more of its budget handsets in the form of a stripped down version called Samsung Pay Mini, where before it could only be used on high-end Galaxy phones.

WhatsApp beta adds launcher app shortcuts, though they're pretty useless

It took nearly a year, but WhatsApp has just added launcher app shortcuts on Android Nougat (or Marshmallow if you use a compatible launcher like Nova and Action). Thing is, the functions that WhatsApp decided to elevate to shortcut status are... kind of useless.

You get a shortcut to launch the Camera, because WhatsApp is all about the new Status feature even though out of my 500+ contacts, I only see 12 new status shares every day. You also get a shortcut to launch a new chat, because apparently you're more likely to talk to new people than to those you already have active conversations with (well, unless you delete all your chats every day like a maniac...

LG's mobile unit loses $117 Million in Q2 2017, blames it on poor LG G6 sales

LG has announced its second-quarter results for the 2017 and things don't look too good for the mobile division, yet again. While both the Home Appliance & Air Solution unit and the Home Entertainment unit have brought in profits ($412.5M and $303.8M, respectively), thanks to strong sales of fridges, washing machines, and OLED TVs, the Mobile Communications division continues to bleed billions of Korean won.

According to LG, the mobile unit had $2.39B in revenue, but the operating margin was again a loss of $117.27M. That's slightly less than last year's Q2 where the unit lost $132M largely due to the G5's mitigated reception.
