Multiple mobile analytics firms have weighed in on the state of Pokémon Go, and the news could be better. Usage is down from its peak in mid-July, which you'd expect for any product that explodes like Pokémon Go. However, the trend continues to be downward for Niantic as daily active users, downloads, and time spent in the app continue to decline. Read More
How good are your Pokémon? Would you like an appraisal by an expert? Well, we don't have any of those. The best you'll get are some vague statements about stats from your virtual team leader in the new Pokémon Go update. Niantic totally promises it's working on more things, though. Read More
The weekend is upon us, and I'm sure you have all sorts of plans out in the real world with people. You would never just loaf around on the couch and play games on your phone all weekend. Hypothetically, if you were to do that, you'd be interested in the sales we've rounded up here. Maybe you should look... in case all those big plans fall through. Read More
Many years ago, people would pour quarters into arcade machines to play Q*bert. You are much more lucky—you can get Q*bert Rebooted for SHIELD at the low price of $5.99 and it's yours forever. This is a special edition title with improved visuals, but it's only for SHIELD devices. Read More
Following a surprisingly fun couple of mobile titles, Deus Ex GO takes Square Enix's formula for adapting its popular AAA series to handheld devices and brings it to the delightful Deus Ex Universe. This turn-based “point-and-click” style board game shares precious little with its cyberpunk dystopian source material (which happens to be one of my favorite franchises). However, that is not to say it is a bad thing, as the fanboy in me screams to claim. It is actually a fun, rewarding, and decidedly challenging experience that fits in nicely with the Deus Ex library.
Deus Ex GO, much like Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO before it, reminds me of some of the classic point-and-click PC titles that I grew up playing. You, the player, have a top-down isometric view of the game “board” which contains various pre-determined paths. Read More
Adam Jensen, cyborg protagonist of the well-received Deus Ex: Human Revolution and its upcoming sequel Mankind Divided, didn't ask for this. It's something he likes to remind everyone right before he hacks through a locked door, sneaks behind a cybernetic guard, and impales him with an augmented blade-limb. And we didn't ask for Deus Ex GO, a turn-based, board game-style reinterpretation of the series for mobile phones and tablets... but we're glad it's here anyway. Read More
USA Network's Mr. Robot is all the rage among tech fans, and not just because it's probably the most faithful depiction of real-world hackers ever to hit primetime. The drama surrounding a gigantic, omnipresent, all-knowing international tech company that has access to every part of the digital world has some disturbing parallels in real life. (Cough, cough.) If you can't wait for the next episode to land in your Android TV queue, there's a new game on the Play Store to check out... and it's made by TellTale, fan-favorite developers of story-focused adventure games.

The Tony Hawk series might be the King of skateboarding games, but that doesn't mean there can't be other viable contenders for the title. True Skate, currently available for $0.10 in many countries (but not in the US), is one such game, and by the looks of it does a damn good job.
True Skate is the official 'Street League Skateboarding' video game, which a bit of Googling tells me is an international competitive skateboarding series. For True Skate to have these credentials is a pretty big indicator of its quality (or at least potential quality) and should inspire confidence if you are a skateboarding fan. Read More
