Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review

By tracy
Foldable phones have come a long way in a single generation, and there’s no better example than the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. Where Samsung’s first-generation foldable phone was delayed due to reliability issues and came with a pair of compromised displays, the Fold 2 feels like a ruggedly solid device that’s a truly all-screen experience both inside and out.However, folding phones are still a premium experience and the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with an astronomical $2000 price tag. As cool as a phone that transforms into a tablet is, some apps don’t display properly on foldable devices, not to mention Android still doesn’t look great on a big screen device.

If you’re still willing to take the plunge on cutting edge technology, the Fold 2 has the best displays, speakers, and performance of any foldable device today. It’s the only foldable phone I can truly see myself actually using right now.

Ubisoft May Have Changed Gods & Monsters’ Name After a Trademark Dispute With Monster Energy

By tracy
It looks like Ubisoft changed the name of Gods & Monsters to Immortals Fenyx Rising due to a trademark dispute with Monster Energy.As detailed in this video from Hoeg Law, the Gods & Monsters trademark faced an opposition filing from the Monster Energy Company in April of 2020, which may have forced Ubisoft’s hand, necessitating the name change to Immortals Fenyx Rising.You can see the full timeline of Gods & Monsters attempted patent registration over on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website. Ubisoft applied for the patent back in June of 2019, and did not face any issues until January of this year, when Monster Energy applied to oppose the trademark under a belief that its brand would be damaged due to the “likelihood of confusion” between the two entities.

In the notice of opposition the energy drink brand cites its ties to the games industry through sponsorship of professional gamers and esports organizations in support of its many claims. What’s interesting is that in Ubisoft’s May 2020 answer to Monster Energy’s notice of opposition, they deny almost all of the claims. Yet ahead of September’s Ubisoft Forward, the game’s name was officially changed from

Star Renegades Review – Pixel Paradise Lost

By tracy

In Star Renegades, only you can save the future from an evil empire. However, your scrappy crew of futuristic space raiders is destined to face insurmountable odds. The solution to staring down endless deaths in the face of super soldiers and murderous mechs? Travel from dimension to dimension to find the reality where you can finally set things right. 

Star Renegades is a turn-based, roguelike, sci-fi experience where your goal is to liberate planets and eventually take the battle to an enemy mothership. You deal with party wipes often and get sent back to the start, but you can keep some powerful unlocks and new characters to bring along on the journey. A new run often feels like a fresh start, pushing closer to a classical roguelike instead of the permanent boosts and comfort of the new-age roguelite. Star Renegades is tough, and can even seem blatantly unfair at times with surprise bosses and one-shot kills, but the pixelated and picturesque jaunts are worth taking again and again, even in the face of your inevitable demise. 

Crafting your crew for each adventure is fun. Pick from an assortment of deadly but vulnerable backline shooters and snipers, frontline tanks and brawlers,
