IFTTT Introduces New Integration With The Nest Thermostat And Protect

Nest Labs only released its Developer Program just yesterday, which opened up its hardware to third-party developers, and IFTTT has already introduced new channels and recipes for use with the company's thermostat and smoke alarm. This integration will allow users to tie their devices to over 100 other products or services. Now you can have your thermostat turn on your fan shortly after sunrise, for example, or let your lights inform your Nest devices that you've turned them off and left the house.

Plants Vs Zombies 2 Dark Ages Update Delivers Nocturnal Plants, A Medieval Theme, And A Whole New World

Plants vs Zombies 2 launched last year with three worlds, and an update followed months later that added a fourth one with a sci-fi theme. Now Electronic Arts has rolled out another expansion of content that introduces more plants, zombies, and stages to occupy players' time. And this one is decidedly darker.

The biggest change, as the 'Dark Ages' name would suggest, is the addition of nocturnal stages. Sun power won't fall from the sky, and rather than sunflowers, players will need sun shrooms to harness light in the dark of night.

[New Game] SNK Wants You To Dance To The Beat-Down In Rhythm Of Fighters

I don't think I've seen such a strange combination of traditional 2D fighting games and music-rhythm gameplay since the vastly underrated Slap-Happy Rhythm Busters. In The Rhythm of Fighters, you take SNK-Playmore's classic cast of King of Fighters characters (and a few others) and have them beat the crap out of each other. But instead of over-the-top button combinations and super moves, this game tasks you with tapping and sliding in time with the chiptune music, which will correspond with your fighter's moves.
