New Samsung phone ditches plastic, adds mobile pay
NEW YORK - Samsung, locked in a tight race with Apple to be the world’s biggest smartphone maker, has unveiled an important new phone that ditches its signature plastic design for more stylish metal and glass.
The South Korean phone manufacturer also unveiled a premium model with a display that curves around the left and right edges so that information can be glanced at on the side. The Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will both include technology for mobile payments, though Samsung isn’t unveiling a service to rival the iPhone’s Apple Pay until this summer.
Time Waster - ‘The Enchanted Cave 2’
If mini-RPGs are your thing, then this game is your thing. This game is a dungeon crawl of epic proportions. You play a curious hero who has heard about an enchanted cave filled with treasure. You can enter, but the only way to leave is by finding a set of enchanted wings – which is actually very easy.
What isn’t so easy is knowing when to use them. When you start, you’re a green stick. You don’t have much in the way of health or gear, both of which change as you make your way deeper into the dungeon. You’ll probably find your wings on the second or third tier. The trick is, when you use your wings you lose all your gear that isn’t an “artifact” (artifacts are highlighted in gold). So if you had a really spiffy sword of fire, you lose it.

Modern games that should be arcade classics
There was once a time when gaming was done inside of arcades, and multiplayer meant getting face-to-face with both your compatriots and enemies alike, dumping pounds of quarters into machines in a bid to put your initials at the top of the leaderboards. Even though arcades have died and taken their place in our memories, the spirit of those games carries on today and inspires an entirely new generation of developers. Here are a few games that could easily have had cabinets in a Dave & Buster’s in the ’80s and ’90s:
