Sword of Xolan oozes with old-school, pixel art style

There won't be an end to game developers releasing pixel-art platformer games simply because old geeks love them.

Casio finally entering the smartwatch market early next year

The smartwatch industry isn't just the domain of OEMs as more and more traditional watchmakers are joining the fray. We've seen Tag Heuer, Montblanc, and others coming up with their own wearables the past few months (although IWC has stated they won't be entering this field anytime soon).

Android top in the US but not Europe; Galaxy S6 sales boost Samsung

We've been wondering if the good reviews of Samsung's new flagship, the Galaxy S6 will translate to sales to help boost the previous smartphone champs. The number (at least from Kantar) are in, and it looks like they have indeed helped the OEM regain top spot in the US, becoming the third best-selling smartphone in the country, just after the iPhone 6 and Samsung's previous flagship, the Galaxy S5. Android has also continued to regain the top spot in the US when it comes to sales, but in Europe's big five, it's still a no go.
