One of the most celebrated announcements at this year’s E3 was that of a remake of a two-decade-old RPG. People are still crazy about Final Fantasy 7, which is why it didn’t come as such a major shock when Square Enix suddenly released the PS1 classic on the App Store this week after years of clamoring from fans.

For my money, the best thing that came out of Marvel this year (with the exception of the stellar Secret Wars comics) was the first season of Daredevil on Netflix. It brought us down to the street level of the Marvel Cinematic Universe without losing sight of what made the movies so appealing in the first place. More →
Fans of The Walking Dead are going to have to wait a couple more months for the sixth season of the gruesome drama, but this weekend marks the beginning of a new show set inside the same universe. Fear the Walking Dead is a spinoff of the original show, set in Los Angeles before events of The Walking Dead.
The first episode premieres on Sunday, but you can watch the opening scene right now. More →
Have you ever received that dreaded text message from your wireless provider that you’ve reached 90% of your data cap before the end of the month? It’s a weird feeling, being scolded by your smartphone, but it’s certainly better than the alternative of the providers just collecting their overage fees at the end of the month.
Still, wouldn’t it be nice to have more control over the data you use when you’re away from a Wi-Fi connection?
It appears that Apple isn’t the only technology company hosting a massive hardware launch event this fall. On Thursday, Chinese Windows blog WPDang revealed that Microsoft will hold a press conference in October during which the company will announce its upcoming slate of devices, including the Surface Pro 4, the Band 2 and two new Lumia phones.

Over the past few months, Grand Theft Auto 5 has established itself as an endless well of entertainment. We’ve seen recreations of our favorite TV shows and movies, the most ridiculous pile-up in recorded (video game) history, and now one user has decided to share what all those security cameras around Los Santos are really capturing.
As mobile app stores have become increasingly crowded, it’s been more and more difficult for developers to grab the attention of smartphone and tablet owners. A game really has to stand out to give curious shoppers a reason to download, even if the game’s free, but developer Hipster Whale blew away everyone’s expectations with the release of Crossy Road late last year.

We’ve spent five seasons exploring the land of Westeros with our favorite (and least favorite) characters on Game of Thrones, but what would it be like to actually visit George R.R. Martin’s fictional world? One fan got to find out when he was cast as an extra for the infamous Purple Wedding scene in season four. More →
As we’ve discussed countless times over the course of this console generation, the PlayStation 4 is the clear winner in terms of international sales. Sony took advantage of Microsoft’s stumbles and appealed to a larger audience than it ever had it the past. At last count, Sony had sold over 25 million units… but Microsoft still hasn’t grown concerned. More →
I love going to the movies. When I was younger, I used to go to the nearest theater at least twice a month, being sure to stay current on the latest blockbusters. As ticket prices have gone up and the barrier to entry for streaming a movie online has decreased dramatically, my habits have changed, and now I’m lucky if I make it to the theater five times in a year.
Last week, Samsung took the stage in New York to officially unveil the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 edge+ phablets, once again boosting its lineup of flagship devices. As we stated in our hands-on previews for both devices, Samsung has once again built two incredibly functional and stylish phones, but we’re not sure if that’ll be enough to bring consumers out in droves.
Samsung is just as concerned about the sales of its mobile devices as we are, so in order to try and sway potential upgraders, the company has released a series of hands-on videos featuring both of the new phones. More →
Other than one surprisingly spectacular failure, it’s been a pretty great summer for movies. Age of Ultron put an explosive bow on the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mad Max: Fury Road revitalized a franchise and Inside Out made us believe in Pixar magic again.
But now it’s time to look ahead to the fall, when some of the most anticipated movies of the decade are scheduled to hit theaters. More →
I’ve gone back and forth on the upcoming PlayStation 4 exclusive adventure horror game Until Dawn, but after spending a few hours with a preview code last month, I think I’m more excited than I am skeptical for the retail release. It’s a pitch perfect teen horror story, chock full of all the tropes you’d expect from a summer movie, but it’s genuinely scary as well. More →
