It features many of the themes on which Sanders has focused while earning a reputation as one of the most outspoken liberals [...] Continue Reading…

Defending national champion Ohio State will open its 2015 slate against the only team it lost to last season: Virginia Tech.
The Buckeyes hosted the Hokies in Week 2 last season and lost a 35–21 stunner. But this year, Virginia Tech gets Ohio State at home and will be gunning for another upset.

The Seahawks have a couple of position battles to look out for in this one, including who will serve as Marshawn Lynch’s backup in Robert Turbin’s absence.Tags: 2015, Game, Live, Raiders, Schedule, Seahawks', Stream, Time, Watch

Zach Gage is consistently one of the most elegant designers of our time. This week, we can say he’s done a meaningful refresh on computer Solitaire (one of the most-played video games of all time, thanks to the iconic Windows bundle), and not really be exaggerating.Tags: Game, Mobile, Sage, Solitaire, week
Recently-released iOS game Sage Solitaire is part Solitaire, part poker, in its way: You have 3 rows of 3 cards each (so nine piles) to clear from top to bottom, and you do this by building “hands”, like pairs or straight flushes.

Riot Games may not have found their Next Big Thing to succeed the wildly popular League of Legends, but they have put out a fun little mobile game that die-hard Summoners and the uninitiated might enjoy.

Along the way you battle other Champions as you gain coin to unlock items and other power ups.

Parents are dropping a serious amount of cash to keep their kids’ tablets and smartphones filled with games.
Spending on games for children makes up 7.8 percent of the worldwide mobile gaming market, according to industry intelligence firm SuperData Research. That’s $ 1.9 billion spent on apps like Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Crossy Road, and Animal Jam. But that money is not necessarily coming from the same kinds of free-to-play games that dominate in other sectors. Instead, premium-priced games with upfront costs make up a respectable ratio of the total revenue.
Developers that want to capture some of that spending, which is [...] Continue Reading…
