The Galaxy S5 has been making the rounds since its global launch a week ago. It's already available at the major US carriers, and now it's trickling down to the smaller options out there. Today the device has come to MetroPCS, a prepaid service owned by T-Mobile, where it's available for $649 without an annual contract. The site shows the phone as currently available in-stores, but the online inventory should appear at some point.
The Moto G was already an affordable handset when the GSM version became available in the US for just $179.99 early last month. Then a Verizon version appeared in some Best Buy stores for $80 less. Now the carrier is officially launching the Moto G for the same low price, selling it both online and in its stores for just $99.99.
People love real-time strategy games. They're immensely immersive, as it's almost a necessity to create elaborate worlds in order to conjure up enough units to make the game worth playing. WarCraft's universe was captivating enough to spawn an MMORPG that has since enthralled millions of players worldwide. Some long-time gamers may scoff at the idea of mentioning Clash of Clans in the same breath as such a proven franchise, but with leagues of players using mobile devices and a free-to-play model, it somewhat embodies what a modern day take on the real-time strategy genre would be, and now the smash hit title has made its way over to Android.
Caesar's dead, and now Gameloft's calling on gamers to form alliances and go to war over who should rule in his place. Sure, Caesar's death could cause some of us to question whether someone other than a general should have a shot at governance, but now's not the time for such hesitation. This is the time for Total Conquest.
Total Conquest is a top-down strategy game that centers around building a province and defending it from attack with towers, traps, walls, and soldiers.
No one likes to be last. The LG G2 was originally slated to become available online from T-Mobile on September 18th, nearly a week after competitors Verizon Wireless and AT&T were to start offering the handset. AT&T already jumped the gun when they started offering sales online a week ago, and now T-Mobile is offering the G2 at the same time as everyone else, at least online.
Unlike AT&T and Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile offers the G2 for $99.99 upfront.
To say that Koreans get into video games more than most of us would be an understatement. Sure, we may stay up til midnight to play a sweet new game, but these guys build friggin' stadiums to play them in. Starcraft isn't the only game that's taken off in Korea, though. Ragnarok Online has been a huge MMORPG in the country that spread worldwide and is now landing on Android.
Bringing what it calls the first multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game for mobile consoles to Android, Gameloft today released Heroes of Order and Chaos to the Play Store.
The game, a spinoff of the original Order and Chaos, takes place in a "unique fantasy setting" where players will join a battle that's been raging for centuries. It pits teams of three or five players against each other in one of two maps (depending on your party size), combining non-stop arena combat with RPG elements.
Following yesterday's price drop at GameStop, it looks like the Nexus 7 is slashing prices everywhere. Staples, Sam's Club, Office Depot, Wal-Mart, and a few other places all list the tablet at $199 (or a rough foreign equivalent). What's a little more rare is the 32GB Nexus 7 going up for sale in a few locations, though it's unclear how approved that is. Sam's Club has it up for order here, and PC Advisor is reporting that at least one user was able to buy the slate from PC World by asking for it, though it wasn't on display.
We've been following the 32GB Nexus 7 meticulously over the past few weeks, and we're pretty sure it's going to be announced soon, possibly alongside a 3G variant of Google's hit 7" tablet. Of course, one of the most significant aspects of the 32GB N7's story is that it's expected to ring in at a $249 price-point, with the 16GB variant dropping down to $199.
We saw some proof of that earlier today at certain Office Depot locations, but now we have one more drop in the bucket – the 16GB Nexus 7 has gotten a price slash on GameStop's website, down to – you guessed it – $199.
For the uninitiated, 2Checkout is a web-based storefront service that allows users to both create an online checkout system for their products as well as handle merchant services like credit card payments.
