    It's a great day for BlackBerry users, as their beloved BBM proprietary messaging service has finally gone cross-platform.

    New Tetris Mobile Game Takes a Page From Pokemon, Looks Awesome

    It almost goes without saying now that the two most addictive things to come out of portable gaming are the brick-racking frenzy of Tetris, and the monster-collecting of Pokemon. So it seems odd that it's taken this long for a developer to mash these ideas up, but that's just what EA's done with recently announced game Tetris Monsters.

    Holy Smokes, Firefly Online Teased at SDCC

    Browncoats rejoice: Fox is bringing Firefly back. But not, you know, as a Netflix exclusive series or something like that. Nope, they've decided to release Firefly Online -- technically they're calling it a "multi-user social role playing game" rather than an MMO -- for mobile devices. No word if Joss Whedon is involved in any way, but anything that's actually official is kind of a welcome gift at this point. The bottom line to all this is that I want my digital Nathan Fillion, and I want him now.

    Walking Dead: 400 Days Launch Trailer Brings the Zombies [Video]

    Let's face it -- we don't generally expect video game adaptations to live up to the works that inspired them. It's just not the way the world works, generally. So it was a happy surprise last year when Telltale Games released a take on the Walking Dead series that stands right up alongside the comics and AMC series that inspired it. Since then, players have been waiting with bated breath for the promised second season of the episodic title. To tide us over until then, Telltale and Skybound Entertainment have released new DLC that will bridge the gap between Seasons 1 and 2: 400 Days. And since you're getting new DLC, you're getting a trailer for it, because what's new content without a preview?

Well, not anymore -- now there's a feature in iOS that allows children under the age of 13 to use a protected form of the app called "Snapkidz," so your kid can take stupid pictures to their heart's content!
