Firefly Games Inc. has released DreamWorks Universe of Legends. At its core, it is yet another lazy hero collection game starring many of the famous characters found in DreamWorks Animation's films, with a few base-building aspects thrown into the mix to round the whole thing out. Of course, a hero collection game wouldn't be complete without simplistic battles that require little to no input from the user. Sadly this is all par for the course in a game filled with in-app purchases that are squarely targeted at children, though I suppose Dreamworks doesn't care where the money comes from as long as it keeps filling their coffers.

When you think of powerful phones, it's natural to imagine a phone with the pixel-pushing power to handle tasks like Daydream VR or some graphically intensive game. The Cat S41 has an entirely different type of power, however. The comparatively massive 5000 mAh battery can be used to charge phones with batteries that just can't handle the rugged use cases of the rugged users of rugged phones. Read More
Chances are that you've already read about Google's comments on the Pixel 2 XL's display, namely the burn-in and color vividness issues. But in that initial post, the blue tint that many Pixel 2 XL screens are being plagued with was not mentioned. Seang Chau, VP of engineering at Google, is saying that this blue shift is normal. However, owners are not taking to this response too kindly. Read More
Back in August I wrote a post about some of Asmodee Digital's upcoming game releases that were announced at Gen Con. Well, it would appear that they have released some more details about these titles this week for Spiel Essen 2017. Anyone familiar with Asmodee Digital will know that they are one of the largest digital board game developers and publishers out there today. So it is no surprise to see that they have a ton of new games planned for release this year and the next. Read More
IT: Escape from Pennywise VR is a new Daydream virtual reality experience that directly ties into the newest movie adaptation of Stephen King's IT. But that's not all. This appears to be Warner Bros. second VR experience for IT, where the first episode IT: FLOAT - A Cinematic VR Experience was released for free on a few different video VR streaming services back in August. Why these releases are not both on Android I am unsure, but I suppose it is a way to monetize what started out as a free promotional tool since IT: Escape from Pennywise VR is priced at $0.99.

Back in April Rocketcat Games announced that Death Road to Canada was finally coming to Android. After a 6-month wait, it would appear that it's officially landed on the Play Store with a price tag of $9.99, a whole $5 cheaper than its PC counterpart. You can expect all of the same pixel-based zombie killing gameplay where you are tasked with managing a car full of jerks as they venture forward to the zombie-free Great White North. Read More
Here we see the wild NETGEAR Nighthawk router in its natural habitat - the beautiful forests of the northwestern United States. He's a massive beast, towering over the other woodland animals, but he's a gentle giant. You can see him hunting for fish in the local river - truly one of the most majestic inhabitants of the forest.
Oh wait, that's not a real picture? Wow AT&T, way to be deceitful with the product pictures. Anyways, the apparently not-massive NETGEAR Nighthawk mobile hotspot was announced today by AT&T. Read More
This is a guest post from developer Carlos Lopez, also known as ShortFuse. He’s the developer of SuperOneClick and Fusion.
As detailed in my recent color explainer, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a default method of displaying colors in a limited color space. Google’s software doesn’t include an option to force a wide gamut, so I created an app that does it. You can download the new Oreo Colorizer right now, and you don’t even need to root your phone.
