Android Oreo (Go Edition) officially launched for entry-level devices

Back at Google I/O in May, Google revealed a new configuration of Android it called "Android Go." Essentially, Android Go was billed as a new version of Android that has been optimized to play nice with entry-level devices, which tend to have tiny amounts of RAM and storage. Today Google is officially launching Android Go, though with a new name: Android Oreo (Go Edition).

Mega Man 11 revealed for late 2018 release

Mega Man 11 revealed for late 2018 release

It's been a long time since we've had a proper Mega Man game, but that's all going to change next year. During Capcom's 30th Anniversary livestream for the Mega Man series today, the company revealed Mega Man 11, continuing the mainline series that first started on the NES back in 1987. We had a feeling that Capcom was going to announce something during the livestream, and given the nature of the celebration, perhaps we should have assumed that Mega Man 11 was on the way.

Galaxy S9 key feature may come to a flip phone first

Galaxy S9 key feature may come to a flip phone first

Last week, Samsung revealed a new flip phone called the W2018. With dual displays, a Snapdragon 835, and 6GB of RAM, the phone is crazy enough as it is, but then we learned of the camera, which is definitely the star of the show. The camera is not only worthy of attention because of its f/1.5 aperture, but also due to the fact that the aperture is adjustable.

Monster Hunter: World PS4 beta kicks off this week

Monster Hunter: World PS4 beta kicks off this week

Among long time Monster Hunter fans, Monster Hunter: World is kind of a big deal. In recent years, the mainline Monster Hunter series has been limited to handhelds, and when it hasn't been, the games have been exclusive to Nintendo consoles, such as Monster Hunter Tri on the Wii. While the handheld Monster Hunter releases have been fine - great, even - they don't always capture the "wow" factor that a larger screen would give these massive monsters.

Galaxy S9 DeX dock gets a new name for an exciting feature

With 2018 quickly coming up, it's nearly time to start looking forward to the reveals of various spring flagship phones. One such phone is the Galaxy S9 (and its expected big brother, the Galaxy S9+), and recent rumors tell us that the launch of those phones could be coming as soon as January. They may not be alone, either, as we're now hearing that Samsung will have a new DeX dock to go along with them.

Facebook Messenger Kids goes heavy on parental controls for safe chatting

Facebook Messenger Kids goes heavy on parental controls for safe chatting

With more than 2 billion monthly users, Facebook can't exactly guarantee that it's going to be a safe place for kids. In fact, Facebook bars anyone younger than 13 from creating a profile, and has done so from the start. While that's probably for the best, Facebook still offers tools that are handy for keeping in touch - specifically Messenger - and now you have an new option if you'd like to let your child have a presence on Messenger while at the same time staying away from the larger Facebook ecosystem.

Mega Man 30th anniversary livestream kicks off tomorrow

Mega Man 30th anniversary livestream kicks off tomorrow

Mega Man has been with us longer than many gamers might realize. The Blue Bomber debuted in his first video game - the very first Mega Man for the NES - on December 17, 1987. That means Capcom's most-loved character is turning 30 years old this month, and to celebrate, the company is planning a special livestream that will look back at Mega Man's long history.

Sony’s PlayStation VR trial program proves an instant success

Just as we were getting ready to head into the weekend, Sony announced a new trial program for the PlayStation VR. Assuming you're selected to participate in the "Try PlayStation VR" program, Sony will send you a PlayStation VR headset and a copy of Skyrim VR to try in your own home for two weeks. As it turns out, that program was wildly successful with gamers from the moment it launched.

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon review: Second time’s a charm

A year ago, I reviewed Pokemon Sun and Moon and found that the changes they brought to the long-running (and in many ways stale) Pokemon series were great. After all, Pokemon is not usually a series that makes drastic changes from game to game. Though Pokemon Sun and Moon are completely different than Pokemon Red and Blue, that isn’t the result of some sweeping reinvention, but rather incremental changes that have been implemented over the course of the series. With Pokemon Sun and Moon, Game Freak rethought its approach and took more risks, and the results were very successful.

In just a few short days, Qualcomm is widely expected to unveil the Snapdragon 845 at its annual Snapdragon Technology Summit in Hawaii. Though we can already expect to see a number of flagship phones sporting the 845 before long, Qualcomm might have another customer looking at some different applications for the new SoC. As it turns out, it may not be long before we see Windows 10 devices using Snapdragon 845 processors.

SNES Classic in stock at ThinkGeek, but there’s a big catch

SNES Classic in stock at ThinkGeek, but there’s a big catch

Even though Nintendo promised to produce more SNES Classics than it did NES Classics, the retro mini-console has still be a difficult product to find. Seemingly sporadic restocks have sold out immediately across the board, making it nearly impossible to get one without lining up in front of a retail store and hoping you got there soon enough. What's an SNES Classic hunter supposed to do?
