Oh... Sir! The Insult Simulator lets players destroy their opponents in the most British way possible

In 2013, the Daily Express ran an informal poll that determined Winston Churchill's famous response to a Parliament member, "Yes I am drunk, but in the morning I shall be sober and you will still be ugly," to be the best insult in history. That's certainly debatable, but it demonstrates that the Brits love a good jape, the more cutting the better. That attitude has been given life in Oh... Sir! The Insult Simulator, a turn-based combat game where insults are your weapons and words are your ammunition.

[Deal Alert] Ice Rage: Hockey is down to 0.10 in a few countries

Another week, another 10 cents deal alert. You should know the symphony by heart now, but in case you've never seen these deals before, here's the gist. Every week, one or two games or apps drop their prices on the Play Store to 10 cents, i.e. pocket change. The discount doesn't affect all countries and is usually limited to France, Italy, Spain, and Germany (EUR 0.10), Russia (RUB 10), the UK (GBP 0.10), and Australia (AUD 0.20). Sometimes, the deal is opened to more countries after a few days, including the US, Canada, India, etc... But other times, we're not that lucky.

Niantic updates Pokémon GO to v0.43.3 with minor tweaks and teases Halloween event

You might be tempted to fire up the game again soon. A new update is rolling out with some welcome improvements, and there's a special Halloween event coming up in a few days.

Solitaire: Decked Out is a delightfully designed, free, and ad-free take on the solitaire game

You would be hard-pressed to find a game as worn out as Solitaire. It's been the default time-waster of Windows users for decades and the topic of many an assistant and receptionist joke. But there's merit to be had in bringing a fresh coat of paint to a done, redone, and overdone concept. That's where Solitaire: Decked Out shines.

It's another take on Solitaire with the same Klondike rules you've grown to know, a 1 or 3-card draw, some achievements for a little bit of competition, pause and resume, unlimited hints and undos, an offline mode, and both landscape and portrait orientations.

While I personally don't play much Minecraft anymore, it remains one of the most popular games of all time. In fact, it's currently in second place for best-selling game of all time, only bowing to Tetris. Mojang has released yet another Minecraft: Pocket Edition update, titled "The Boss Update."

First up, this update brings official mod support to Pocket Edition in the form of 'Add-ons.' These Add-ons are essentially textures and JSON files, so developing them is extremely easy. You can even share the Add-ons you make with others.
