Steam Link for Android hands-on: A nearly effortless game-streaming solution

A few days ago, Valve released the beta version of the Steam Link app for Android. This means that you can play your Steam library right on your phone, and it's pretty great. Though it's by no means a new concept – we've seen it before with Sony and Nvidia devices – it doesn't require either a PlayStation or a GeForce graphics card. All you need is a Steam library and your phone on the same network, plus a controller, and you're good to go.

Google unveils Earth VR, opening the world to virtual reality, only on Vive for now

Let's be real here: we live on a beautiful planet. While some of our fascinations lie in what is beyond our rock in space, I think that we should take the time to appreciate what we're standing on. It is quite impossible that any one person can see all that this world has to offer, which is why Google Earth is so cool. Today marks the next step for exploring our homeworld by adding the virtual reality element with the appropriately named Earth VR.

Remember that scene from every action movie ever, where the headstrong but academically challenged hero has to be walked through an on-the-job lesson in bomb defusal by the specialist on the other end of the radio/phone/hyperspace ansible connection? Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is basically that experience, set up for two players (the on-the-job hero and remote specialist), and designed to create the maximum amount of tension possible. It debuted on Steam last year, but now it's available on the Play Store for early Daydream VR users.

You can't swing a dead cat on the Play Store without hitting half a dozen point-and-click adventure games. That's not a bad thing, of course: between the relative ease of porting old adventure games to the platform and the way touchscreen controls are eminently suited to the genre, it's hardly surprising that they're getting a renaissance in the mobile age. The latest original adventure game to make its way to Android from Steam is Randal's Monday, a crass sci-fi romp that's heavy on humor and even heavier on pop culture.

CrossOver Preview runs Windows apps on Android and Chromebooks, even Photoshop

Last week, CodeWeavers announced that after three years of development, a preview version of CrossOver for Android would be released. Why was I so excited? Because CrossOver allows you to run Windows programs on Mac and Linux, and they brought their expertise over to Android. After trying out the Preview version for a week (which you can sign up for here), I'm extremely impressed by its capabilities, despite some major limitations.
