Do you want to bust through doors, fire dozens of machine guns, and kill all the baddies? Then This War of Mine isn't what you're looking for. War heroes aren't just the fighters, they're also the survivors who find themselves thrown into a bleak world and have to scrape for meat, find a shelter, protect each other, and just try to get through each day unharmed and alive. That's the aspect of war that This War of Mine taps into, and it does so with surprising depth and sensibility for a "game". Our own Michael was very impressed when he reviewed it. Read More
You may think you have enough Bluetooth speakers, but then you find yourself in a room or a location where you don't have one handy and you start wishing you did. Maybe you placed one in the living room and bedroom, but what about the garden, kitchen, shower, or your gadget bag? Well, it's high time you filled up those silent speakerless spaces with music and podcasts and all the noise and sound that your phone can stream. Best of all? It won't cost you a lot.
At $39.99, AmazonBasics has a very decent deal on its Bluetooth unit with 2 internal 3W speakers, MicroUSB charging, and 15 hours of battery life on streaming. Read More
To celebrate the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox consoles, Square Enix is discounting its Lara Croft GO game by 60% on the Play Store. It's a flash sale though, so you might want to hurry and grab it if the game seemed appealing to you or if you liked its spiritual predecessor Hitman GO.
Lara Croft GO is a turn-based puzzle adventure, where you play your turn moving your character along predefined paths, then wait for your opponents to make their move. There isn't a lot of urgency in the game, so you can take your time exploring the 75 different levels and figuring out the best way to finish them, all while listening to a nice soundtrack and enjoying the smooth animations and low-poly-like designs.

Deep Dungeon of Doom usually costs $3.99. That's not a bad price to pay for a fun side-scrolling dungeon crawler with different protagonists — crusader, witch, and mercenary — and plenty of levels that throw you back to the good'ol times of gaming with 8-bit graphics and nostalgic sound effects. It's even much more acceptable after the game was updated to remove all in-app purchases. Now all gold has to be earned in order to buy upgrades and all revive tokens have to be won fair and square.

Starting on October 28th, YouTube Red will let folks in the US start watching all the movie trailers, phone reviews, music videos, epic fails, adorable babies, cat clips, and rants they've been consuming for years, sans ads. In exchange, viewers hand over $9.99 a month instead, or $15 if they have a Play Music family plan.
Unless, it turns out, you're one of the early Play Music subscribers. Google is sending out emails to folks who hopped on board in the early summer of 2013 to inform them that when they are transferred to YouTube Red, they will get to keep their discounted $7.99 rate. Read More
Qualcomm has just announced its Quick Charge 3.0 technology, but it will take a while to make its way into new phones and accessories. However, we're starting to see the commoditization of Quick Charge 2.0 accessories, like these 2 Tronsmart chargers for example that are getting their prices slashed in about half. Read More
Looking for some cheap games? Then Electronic Arts and its mobile subsidiary Chillingo would like to offer you a selection for just a dime a piece (assuming you live in the US, Canada, Mexico, and a few other places). None of the games are particularly new with the exception of Power Ping Pong (which is pretty great) and the horror adventure game In Fear I Trust (which was just published), but most of them cost $4-5 at their regular prices.

Remember the exorbitant amount of casheesh that Samsung wanted for its Galaxy S6 Edge less than half a year ago? Yeah, that's no more. As is the case with most flagships, if you're patient enough to wait for prices to drop, they inevitably will and to a point where you could actually consider forking that much money for them.
A few weeks ago, we spotted the 32GB S6 Edge down at $499, and now we're seeing the 64GB version at an equally awesome discount. How awesome? $549.99. That's how much the eBay seller wants for the G925F model, which is the international unlocked variant of the phone. Read More
A couple of months ago, we shared with you a deal on Intocircuit's 11200mAh battery, which at the time was down to $13.49 after a coupon code on Amazon. Today, we have another external battery from the company, except it's the next generation one with better specs, more power, and a relatively great price of $14.99 after applying a $15 coupon code.
This dual-USB 13000mAh battery has SmartID technology, which allows it to detect the type of device connected to each of its two ports and channel the most efficient amount of power to it. It can go as high as 2.4A on each port, for a total of 4.8A. Read More
Are you in the market for an external battery pack? No? About to be tempted anyway? I thought so. Read More
