A bizarre Chinese app has taken the Internet by storm this week

Every month or so, an app comes along that captures the imagination of the Internet. We saw it with Words with Friends, Draw Something and Flappy Bird, but nothing had caused quite as big a stir as any of those apps in a while.

At least, that was the case until everyone stumbled across the free Chinese app My Idol earlier this week. More →

You can now make money by modding your favorite PC games

The modding community has been growing steadily ever since the dawn of PC gaming, but only in recent years has the idea of paying for user-created content become a reality.

Valve has been leading the charge with the Steam Workshop, giving Team Fortress 2 and Dota 2 modders the opportunity to share their creations with a large audience, but starting this week, modders will be able to start setting their own prices for those creations and selling them directly to consumers.

Watch the first gameplay trailer for Mad Max, from the developer of Just Cause 2

There’s only one game development team working on two games that I can’t wait to play this fall: Avalanche Studios. You might remember Avalanche Studios from the fantastically chaotic Just Cause 2 way back in 2010, but the developers have been hard at work on both that game’s follow-up and another, even more intriguing project over the last five years.

Double your Galaxy S6’s battery life with this cheap case from Amazon

Double your Galaxy S6’s battery life with this cheap case from Amazon

When we reviewed the Galaxy S6 last month, we found the battery life to be about on par with most of the other flagship devices that have launched this generation. The fast-charging adapter certainly helps alleviate this issue if you happen to be near a wall outlet, but what if you’re on the move all day and need your phone to last, no matter how much stress you put it through?

For those days, you probably wouldn’t mind having a battery case to back you up, and as luck would have it, Amazon has a great one on sale right now. More →

MLB 15 The Show Review

MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

MLB 15 The Show review: Infield fly

When I elected to review MLB 14 The Show last year, I thought I might be in over my head. I hadn’t played any of the recent entries in the series and I didn’t think I would fare especially well within the game, regardless of how well put together it was. Thankfully, my worries were misplaced, and I found myself immersed in a sports game for the first time in years.

I was hoping to have a similar experience with MLB 15 The Show, but after spending hours with San Diego Studio’s sequel, I have begun to see through the veneer of the improved visuals and have found a game that feels more like a step backwards than a home run.

Along with Inglourious Basterds, Legally Blonde and Fruitvale Station, Netflix will also bring original series Grace & Frankie and a stand-up special from Jen Kirkman to its streaming service next month. More →
