Netmarble's turn-based gacha RPG 'Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie' is here

Netmarble doesn't have the greatest reputation. Thanks to its heavy-handed use of free-to-play mechanics and plenty of expensive in-app purchases, a lot of shade gets thrown its way, and deservedly so. That's why the release of its latest gacha RPG is a bit of a rare occurrence, it's actually not that bad. After a lengthy soft-launch period Phantomgate: The Last Valkyrie is finally available on the Google Play Store, and despite the expected downsides of a title like this, there's a lot of fun to be had. So if you are a fan of 2D platforming and classic turn-based RPG battles, you're going to want to give this a gander.

LG V30 starts shipping in South Korea, more markets to follow in the coming days/weeks

After being announced at IFA at the end of last month, LG's newest and hottest flagship is finally making its way to markets around the world. As always, LG is starting the release of the V30 in its home turf of South Korea but is promising that it will come to North America, Europe, and other markets "in the days and weeks to come."

That's vague, sure, but it's the same refrain we hear with each LG device release. If you were expecting more exact dates and price details, you'll have to wait.

Verizon slaps a 'V' on the end of the LG Stylo 2, sells it for $240

The Galaxy Note 7 may have left us too soon, but LG wants you to remember that it also offers stylus-equipped Android phones! Granted, the G3 Stylus and G Stylo weren't exactly in the same super-premium league as the Notes, but they had big screens and pointy sticks, and that's what counts. The LG Stylo 2 wasn't blessed with a G, and perhaps that's why it hasn't come to any American carriers. Spotting a hole where a superfluous letter needed to go, Verizon decided to slap a "V" on the end. So now we have the Verizon LG Stylo 2 V, coming to a retailer near you on October 20th.
