Destiny 2 players on Stadia get a brief glimpse of the game's future

Destiny 2 players on Stadia get a brief glimpse of the game's future

One of the more persistent problems with Stadia is that, due to a relatively low amount of players versus established platforms like Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, its multiplayer games can sometimes feel a little empty. Destiny 2 will fix that problem sometime this fall ... or right the hell now, because the developers accidentally turned on crossplay a little early.

PUBG Mobile's 1.4 update guest stars Godzilla and King Kong (APK Download)

PUBG Mobile's 1.4 update guest stars Godzilla and King Kong (APK Download)

In a typical battle royale, the goal is to be the last one standing among a hundred combatants. When one of those combatants is a 300-foot tall radioactive lizard, you're going to need a little more than an UZI to take it down. The next update to Player Unknown's Battlegrounds introduces a crossover with Godzilla vs Kong, with Legendary's giant monsters set to duke it out on the mobile maps starting later this week.

Google is going to replace Google Discover on tablets with a new interface

We all know that Android tablets aren't exactly the industry benchmark, and Google has mostly stopped creating first-party products for this market. But the company still hasn't given up on tablets. It has just announced an "Entertainment Space" that should make Android tablets vastly better at giving you access to your streaming services, ebooks, and games — right on the leftmost panel of your homescreen.

PlayStation app now lets you delete files and games from your PS5 without touching it

Last year, Sony redesigned its PlayStation App in the light of the PS5 release and promised a slew of new features once the console was more widely available. Some of these are now starting to come to people as part of PlayStation App version 21.4. The release lets you manage your PS5 storage right from the app, allowing you to remove titles you no longer play without even fully turning on your console.

EA tests the limits of good taste, purchases Glu Mobile for $2.1 billion

EA tests the limits of good taste, purchases Glu Mobile for $2.1 billion

Perhaps Electronic Arts figured it was about time to start milking the cash cow that is mobile gaming: it has announced its intent to buy publisher Glu Mobile, known for its freemium all-encompassing titles like "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood," "Cooking Dash," and 2013's "Frontline Commando: D-Day," for $2.1 billion — a 36% premium on its market capitalization up to today.

Android 12's hidden 'game dashboard' just got some new features, but you still can't use it

Android 12's hidden 'game dashboard' just got some new features, but you still can't use it

Pixels on Android 12 look set to pick up a game-oriented dashboard, similar to what other Android phones offer. The feature — alternately called a "Game Mode" or "game dashboard" — leaked prior to Android 12's previews and was spotted semi-working but hidden later in development. In the latest DP3, it looks like it's still "hidden," but it has picked up some new features, including a "game optimization" setting to adjust performance level. The existing toggles in the menu can be moved to a floating overlay, and the FPS counter works separately from the display's refresh rate.

Sign up for Ubisoft+ through Stadia to get access to 20 games

Not everyone is a fan of monthly subscription services, but in some cases, they can end up being cheaper than buying everything you want individually. Ubisoft+ is a subscription that includes most of the titles published by the French game company of the same name, and Google has announced you can now sign up for the service right through Stadia.

Discord ends $10 billion plus sale talks with Microsoft

Discord ends $10 billion plus sale talks with Microsoft

When the news broke that Discord talked to Microsoft regarding a $10 billion plus sale, people were quickly worried it might pan out like the Redmond Skype acquisition back in 2011. The communication platform gradually turned into a bloated, buggy piece of software that's next to impossible to shut down on Windows. It looks like Discord may not have to face that fate, after all. The gaming focused chat startup halted talks with Microsoft and other interested parties.

Lenovo's new gaming phone has leaked and it looks weird as hell

Lenovo's new gaming phone has leaked and it looks weird as hell

One of the oddly enduring trends of the last few years is "gaming phones," designs that have been tweaked (sometimes dramatically) for mobile gaming performance. Lenovo made one with its Legion gaming brand last year, and according to a leak posted to Antutu's Weibo account, it's back with another design. This one's outlandish, even for a gaming phone.

The latest Pixel 5 update contains a surprise performance boost

The latest Pixel 5 update contains a surprise performance boost

The Google Pixel 5 (and 4a 5G) with its mid-tier Snapdragon 765G was not made to please mobile gamers — something we even mentioned in our review. While that notion is not changing completely, the April Pixel update seems to have brought a sizable improvement in GPU performance, as noted by several users.
