Threes! Trailer

The gameplay involves combining numbered block to form ever increasing multiples of 3. The concept is pretty simple and straight, but it becomes quite challenging because of some rules. In the game you are require to combine numbers to form a multiple of three, but not all numbers can be combined. The real challenging part is that only same numbers can be combined, like 3 and 3 can be combined to form 6 which then can only be combined with another 6 to form 36, and so on. Only number 1 and 2 are exempted from this rule, as 1 and 2 can be combined to form 3.

With each slide the number on the board increases and your goal is to keep forming multiples of three so the board does not get full. If the board gets full, it is game over for you.

Threes! is indeed a tiny game with big challenge.

Fans of Fallout all around the world have been eagerly waiting to hear any official words on the next entry in the Fallout series. We have been hearing rumors and seeing hoaxes about Fallout 4 for quite some time, but we have yet to see something official.

This might not be something concrete, but still it is enough to give us some hope. An IMDB listing labeled “Fallout: Shadows of Boston” has recently surfaced with the release date being some time in 2017. There is nothing to confirm the authenticity of this listing, but there is also no evidence of it being false.

Also, according to the recently leaked documents, it was reported that the location of Fallout 4 will be Boston. Therefore, this IMDB listing could really be the Fallout 4 we all have longed for. Just as a reminder, there is still no official confirmation of the existence of Fallout 4.

Update: The IMDB listing page has been taken down. Does this count as a confirmation?

An image of a new HTC phone has recently surface on twitter in a tweet by Russian site HTCFamily.ru.

This new HTC phone, code named HTC M8, could be the successor to the HTC One since its casing is similar to HTC One.

Things that differentiate it from HTC One are two camera lenses with dual flash on the back.

The Russian site HTCfamily.ru also posted some schematic of the front of HTC M8 that tells that it might not have any physical buttons that we usually see in any smartphone for power on and off.

With Samsung preparing for Galaxy S5 and Apple possibly preparing for next iPhone, it completely makes sense for HTC to be working on their next flagship as well.
