Google Photos may revive monthly print subscription experiment with a new lower price

Earlier this year, Google Photos was spotted testing a subscription that would send users prints of their photos every month.

Hot Wheels Unlimited is a shallow racing game that has the nerve to ask for a subscription

Hot Wheels Unlimited is a shallow racing game that has the nerve to ask for a subscription

At first blush, I thought Hot Wheels Unlimited looked like an enjoyable children's game where kids can create courses to race on with their favorite Hot Wheel vehicles.

Mario Kart Tour finally arrives on Android, and it’s easily the worst game in the series

At the tail end of August we learned that Mario Kart Tour would land on Android on September 25th, and early this morning, the racer was officially released on the Play Store. Now, the thing to remember is that this is a game that has been delayed more than a few times, with announced dates coming and going, and now that I've played the end product, it's clear why. At its core, Mario Kart Tour is yet another bland gacha game with a famous brand slapped on top, but things get much worse than this, so strap in, because this ride's about to get very bumpy.
