[New App] ROCCAT's Power-Grid App Gives PC Gamers Remote Control Of Their Rigs Via Android, Open Beta Starts Tomorrow

The latest gaming rigs are powerful enough to run circles around the upcoming generation of gaming consoles, but unless a PC gamer is willing to run a title in windowed-mode, invest in a second display, or become an alt-tab ninja, getting absorbed in a game can mean tuning everything else out. Keyboard and mouse developer ROCCAT's Power-Grid app offers gamers a way to stay immersed with much less effort. This free offering turns your Android device into a customizable remote for your PC, giving you the means to monitor system stats, play music, follow social media, and more without having to interrupt the game.

[New Game] Namco Takes Air Combat Intergalactic With Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy

Namco-Bandai released Sky Gamblers: Rise Of Glory more than a year ago, and the WWI 3D air combat game was well-received. The sequel takes the setting to the near future with a mix of modern fighter jets and alien invaders. Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy is definitely one of the most graphically-intensive entries in the admittedly small niche, and the loose arcade style is well-suited to touch controls.

The game isn't quite as sci-fi as the trailer on the Play Store suggests: when Air Supremacy launched on iOS 18 months ago (sigh), its primary campaign had you facing off against conventional air and ground targets.

More Twitter Beta App Tweaks: Consolidated Tweet Buttons And A Lot Of Crashing

Twitter has been steadily tweaking their beta release channel for the Android app, and the latest update removes one of the most poorly-received features from the last beta version. The translucent tri-button array at the bottom of the screen (post a photo from storage, take a photo, or a simple textual tweet) has been removed, and is now replaced with a single, consolidated button.
