Ever since Paradox Interactive declared its intention of bringing some of its big strategy games, such as Crusader Kings and Stellaris, over to mobile, I've been wishing for one thing; a Crusader Kings mobile game where I can play out all those complicated and often hilarious storylines that have made the game so famous. Well, although I
Pokemon GO [Free] fever has been spreading like wildfire all across the globe for the past couple of weeks, and now The Hollywood Reporter is, er, reporting that Legendary Pictures have just landed the rights to Pokemon and plan on making a live-action movie out of the popular IP. Legendary is no stranger to being

According to obscure holiday-collecting web sites, today is nap day. Some guy on Blogspot calling the day nap day is more than good enough for me, and really, it should be good enough for you. Anyway, assuming you're not taking this opportunity to go take a nap right now, there's a ton of new iOS
