Ubisoft's Horse Haven World Adventure Is The Unholy Intersection Of Free-To-Play Games And Screaming Otherworldly Terror

Ubisoft seems to have an odd fixation with horse-themed mobile games. The publisher made an Android version of the inexplicably popular Howrse, a sort of equestrian-themed adaptation of free PC RPGs like Ragnarok Online. Now Ubi has created its own horsy mobile game, the innocuously-titled Horse Haven World Adventure.

It's terrifying. Completely, utterly terrifying. If H.P. Lovecraft and H.R. Geiger had some kind of genetically engineered offspring with too many initials, it would not come close to approaching the horror that lies beneath Horse Haven World Adventure.

Twitter Launches Periscope, A Live-Streaming App That It Bought For Around $100 Million—But The Android Version Will Have To Wait

Periscope was born in February of 2014, and before launching a product, it attracted the attention of a number of investors. Then Twitter bought it for something resembling $100 million. The deal closed early this year, and now the two are ready to introduce Periscope to the public.

Unfortunately, the Android version will have to wait. This is an iOS-only launch.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Up For Pre-Order March 27th In The US, Available In Stores April 10th

Samsung has announced official US availability dates for the Galaxy S6, and they might sound rather familiar. Just like the HTC One M9, you can pre-order the new Galaxy tomorrow (March 27th) and pick one up on April 10th. The exact details will vary by carrier, but already both AT&T and T-Mobile have announced pre-orders for tomorrow. Other carriers haven't announced official details yet, but I expect it won't be long.

Root Method Now Available For Verizon's Motorola DROID Turbo - With Some Big Drawbacks

Pity the poor Verizon customer, whose options for user-moddable Android phones are more limited than any other US carrier. It's particularly cruel, then, that Verizon tends to get some awesome Motorola exclusives in the DROID line. 2014's entry is the DROID Turbo, which is basically the Nexus 6 crammed down into the 5.2-inch body of the second-gen Moto X, plus the usual DROID Kevlar styling and an enormous 3900mAh battery. Oh, and a locked bootloader that makes root and custom ROMs difficult.
