Yesterday, Dong Nguyen, creator of the bewildering smash hit Flappy Bird, announced via Twitter that he would be taking Flappy Bird down a day later.

300: Rise of an Empire - Seize Your Glory confuses what goes in a name and what should be a tagline. Shortening this down to 300: Rise of an Empire, the name of the upcoming film it's based on, would make perfect sense, but no. Instead, we get this. Read More
