Battlefront II, the new video game where you can play as Bossk before you spend a dozen hours unlocking Luke Skywalker, has a slavish dedication to fancy graphics and Star Wars action. Unlike its predecessor, it has a whole new Star Wars story to tell. But while it starts promisingly, it ends up being a far too…
While Reddit sometimes overstates its value as a space for authentic conversations online, the massive community-driven website has served as a kind of town hall where everyone from everyone from Elon Musk and Barack Obama to a dildo manufacturer have responded to questions from completely un-vetted strangers.…

Fight as boxing legends past and present in the newest Fight Night installation from EA, which has truly impressive graphics and squeezes an incredible amount of gesture control onto a 3.5" interface (swipe this way to throw an uppercut; swipe this way to throw a haymaker, etc.).

AHHHHHHH FIRE! Fire sale that is. EA's got tons of great games on sale in the U.S. App Store for just a buck. A buck! TouchArcade lists 'em all:
No offense, Plants vs. Zombies, but it might be time for a new tower defense game. If you're ready to get serious about your defending, then the expansive RTS-RPG-tower defense hybrid Legendary Wars might be the new king.
