Dangerous Golf brings powerups and destruction to the game

Dangerous Golf brings powerups and destruction to the game

I have a strange relationship with golf. I've played a few games with friends over the years. It's enjoyable, but not something I go out of my way to do. Putt-putt, on the other hand, is something that I could do all day long. My relationship with video game versions of golf are similar. I can enjoy serious ones with friends, but give me something a little more silly, and I'll probably enjoy it a lot more. Which is exactly why I'm looking forward to Dangerous Golf.

Lyft and other to use Waze SDK for better navigation

If you do a lot of driving, then chances are that you've heard of (and used) an app called Waze. For those not familiar, Waze is a navigation app that updates you on traffic conditions in real-time. Knowing that there's been a wreck, or that a particular route is congested can help you avoid those roads and get to your destination quicker. Well now companies like Lyft are taking advantage of Waze's offerings.

Uber will use phone sensors to confirm passenger complaints

I had my first experience with Uber earlier this month at CES.

Mod turns Jedi Academy into a 1v1 Star Wars fighting game

Back in 1997, we were graced with one of the weirdest additions to the Star Wars franchise. No, I'm not talking about Sy Snootles getting a CGI makeover. Rather, I'm talking about the release of Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi for the original Playstation. It was a bizzare fighting game that frankly, was pretty terrible, with its only redeeming quality being that it was something new with Star Wars on it.

Study finds that Facebook friends really couldn’t care less about you

Thanks to the miracle that is Facebook, we've got more friends, and we're more easily connected to them than ever. We see their constant updates and achievements, and we support them by hitting that little “like” button that lets them know that we care just enough to do the bare minimum. Oh, and according to a recent study, roughly 97% of your Facebook friends couldn't care less about you.

Mighty No. 9 gets Mighty Delay No. 3

Mighty No. 9 gets Mighty Delay No. 3

If you've been looking for another game with the same sort of feel as Mega Man, then you'd probably be happy to hear about Mighty No. 9. The “spiritual successor” to Mega Man raised over $4 million on Kickstarter back in 2013, and had some lofty goals. Unfortunately you'd also be disappointed to hear that the game is being delayed for the third time.
