Let’s be honest – things generally don’t go very smoothly for the humans living within the Fallout universe’s underground vaults. Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter for iPhone and iPad gives us the opportunity to try our hand at doing better, to (hopefully) provide a better life for the citizens of the post-apocalypse. Balancing the need to produce food, water, and power – all while fending off radroaches, raiders, and other dangers is a good challenge… at first. But oddly, once you succeed the fun fades away because of the lack of a planned-out endgame.
What could possibly go wrong when putting us in charge of a vault? In Fallout Shelter’s earliest (and most fun) moments, it turns out the answer is pretty much everything. The core gameplay loop is easy to understand – as new citizens are born or recruited into your vault, you must dig into a mountain to construct Living Quarters for them to sleep, as well as Water Treatment Plants and Cafeterias to produce their food and water, and Power Plants to keep all these factories operating.

With E3 done and dusted for another year, what better way to celebrate than a sultry reading of that Buffy fan fiction that Lucy wrote as a teenager we mentioned was dug up recently? We did mention that, right? That Lucy once wrote some slightly steamy Buffy fan fiction? We, she did. And now Cam’s going to read it. Incidentally, we also talk about a whole mess of games.
It’s here, ladies and gentlemen. After a few files got leaked last night, TaiG has come back today with the official version of its jailbreak tool for iOS 8.3. The tool, which is dubbed as version 2.1.2, is for Windows only and features proper Cydia Substrate support. It also fixes the problems with iTunes, where the tool would get stuck at 20% or 60%. … Read the rest of this post here
One of the first things that I do on a new OS X install is adjust the trackpad and mouse settings to my liking. I absolutely love using things like tap to click and the three finger drag gesture.
Imagine my horror when I could no longer find the three finger drag gesture as an option in System Preferences. It’s simply no longer in the place where it usually is: System Preferences > Trackpad. Well as it turns out, things aren’t so grim as they at first seemed.
Apple moved the three finger drag gesture option to another location, although the move doesn’t make a lot of sense if you ask me. In this post, I’ll show you how to enable the three finger drag gesture on OS X El Capitan…. Read the rest of this post here
So yeah… Since last week’s episode aired, Hannibal has been freaking cancelled by NBC. And sure, there’s a chance it could be saved by another outlet, but nothing is certain. And it’s really depressing to think that Hannibal might not be back for another season, considering how wonderful it is. But in the meantime, we still have 10 more episodes of Season 3! So let’s try and push aside our feelings about the show’s uncertain future (I know, I know…) and focus on what we’re getting… because we’re getting some great stuff!
Captain America: Civil War is currently in production, with Marvel planning a May 6, 2016, release for the third film in the Star-Spangled Avenger’s series. And while Civil War is the next movie in the Cap saga, it is also so full of other heroes (and some villains) that it almost feels like another Avengers film altogether.
It all started with the reveal that Robert Downey, Jr. himself would return once more as Iron Man, which is pretty much an essential aspect of the Civil War storyline. The comics saga on which the film is based pits Cap versus his friend and fellow Avenger Iron Man when the two can’t agree on how the heroes of the world should respond to a government push to register super-powered beings. Factions are formed among your favorite characters, and a war begins…
It’s hard not to be endeared by a family dog movie like Max, about a military dog who forms an unbreakable bond with the younger brother (Josh Wiggins) of his fallen handler Kyle (The Flash’s Robbie Amell). Directed by Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans), the film mimics similar movies that have come before — Old Yeller, Lassie, Beethoven, Air Bud, etc. — much to a fault. However, Max’s defining quality, the military backstory, gives it some added depth — even if those parts also become tedious at times.
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Max is Max himself (played by several Belgian Malinois). Even with co-stars Thomas Haden Church and Lauren Graham (who play the bereaved parents) in the movie, it’s the dogs who give the most convincing performance here — and that’s not a slight against the human actors; I genuinely mean the dogs give great performances.
