Sid Meier's Civilization series has been a mainstay on PCs since the first game's release in 1991, though developer Firaxis has occasionally dabbled in console and mobile titles.

EVE Echoes has been a long time coming, thanks to COVID, but we are finally nearing the official release. This title will exist as a mobile version of the mainline sandbox MMO, and we've known since July that the game would be officially launched on the Play Store on August 13th. Lo and behold EVE Echoes is available for download a day early, you simply won't be able to play until tomorrow (8/13) when the game's servers go live at 4:00 AM EST.
Welcome to Wednesday, everyone. After a strong start to the week things have calmed down, but I still have a few noteworthy sales to share with everyone today. First and foremost, Root Explorer is on sale today, which is a fantastic file explorer for root users.

It would also appear that TAITO is offering a bunch of sales on its arcade games, such as Space Invaders and Raystorm. As always, I've highlighted all of the interesting titles in bold to make discovery easier.
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note20 Ultra is premium as all get-out, packing the beefiest specs money can buy in 2020, including a Snapdragon 865+, 12 gigs of RAM, and a 6.9-inch 120Hz display. That spread is particularly good for gaming, but not every game can take full advantage of the giant display's high refresh rate. But a bunch can! Here's a handy searchable list of high refresh rate games you can try on the Note20 Ultra.
Last week, we reported Microsoft's game streaming service xCloud would launch on September 15 and that it would initially require an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription.

Google has stayed quiet about bringing its Stadia game streaming platform to iOS, even though the game library application has been available on the App Store for a while now.
