Flight simulator players are something of a different breed. Flight simulation games can require hours of attention to what, for many people, is an extremely tedious (boring), monotonous (boooooring) task. But, the best simulators on the market are so good (realistic) that you can actually use them as part of a professional flight simulator. X-Plane (for the desktop) is that good.

Now, the Android game is no substitute for getting your pilot's license, but Laminar Research, the company that makes the game, promises "85% of the accuracy" of the desktop version.

It's been 25 years since Jaws: The Revenge hit theaters. The movie is unbelievably terrible (if you don't believe me, just ask Rotten Tomatoes, where it's got a rare 0% rating), but surprisingly, a licensed game released two and a half decades later is actually pretty fun. In Jaws Revenge, you take on the role of the titular shark to merrily swim the coastal waters, eating swimmers, divers, fish, seagulls and whatever else you can find.

Clothes are a necessary part of life. It doesn't matter who you are - you have to wear something. Where you choose to buy those clothes, however, is up to you. You can pay full retail at... wherever, or you can choose to be frugal and hit the closeout sites and stores.

When it comes to picking up quality clothes on the cheap, few do it as well as Sierra Trading Post.

I'm not really a big car enthusiast, but there's just something that everyone can appreciate about drifting. Even in games, hitting the curve and sliding it through is a killer feeling, but it's one that even the best of racing games don't put a lot of focus on. That's where Drift Mania Championship 2 changes things - it's all about the drift, baby.

As you can see, not only does this game put you behind the wheel and let you slide all over the place, but it looks fantastic doing so.

I just want to put this on the table: I don't like football. It's not that I don't understand it - I just find it boring. And silly. I tried to get into it once, and that just wasn't happening. But, I also realize that many of you lovely folks do like football. So this is for you. Well, kind of.

The NFL pushed a pretty major update to its "NFL '12" app last night that brings some pretty nice features for anyone who uses the app:

What's in this version:

- All new Thursday Night Football Xtra companion experience
- Completely redesigned Videos section (Android tablet only)
- Access to the NFL.com/Live look-in show for TNF (Android tablet only)
- Ability to share all your favorite News
- Added more stats
- Bug fixes

So, what's the problem?

Kairosoft can take 16-bit graphics and a few scripts and turn them into fun over and over again without fail. This time the Japanese mobile game developer has strayed a bit from its typical approach, though, by combining its world builder-style titles with a Pokemon-esque RPG element. Yeah, it's weird.

Google Maps is awesome. You know why it's awesome? Because of stuff like this. On the Lat Long Blog today, Google announced that it has implemented new 45-degree flyover imagery in 51 cities (such as below) around the world - 37 in the US, 14 abroad.

PIZZA

Satellite imagery has also been updated. 17 cities have refreshed space-based shots, along with 112 various regions in a whole bunch 'o countries. So, today's probably a prime opportunity to go around gloating to those friends of yours who are, shall we say, less geographically fortunate.
