Google is taking Ingress very seriously. In other news, we have an HTC One E9 leak and a new Final Fantasy game hitting the shelves.
Would you watch an Ingress TV show? If the latest report proves to be true, such content will actually come to existence. The Information reports Niantic Labs (Ingress developer team) has partnered with the Sean Deaniel Company, a popular producer that also worked on The Expanse.
The plan would be to pitch the show to TV and streaming networks like Netflix. Will they take it? Well, it certainly seems like an interesting concept. This will be no usual show; it will be an extension of the game. So much that the events in the show would actually affect Ingress players across the world.
Opinion: I am no fan of Ingress, but his actually sounds pretty darn cool! We will have to see how it evolves. For all we know it may never actually make it to our screens.
The HTC One M9 is one hell of a device, but it intense design and epic build quality may make the phone a bit too pricey for you. This is why HTC also has the One E series, which offers powerful smartphones with a more affordable construction. Today we are taking a look at the upcoming HTC One E9.
We have no idea what specs it will offer, but the HTC One E8 had powerful specs like a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 5-inch 1080p display and more. We can expect the One E9 to have similar power to the M9.
What we can tell is that the device is everything we can expect out of an HTC One E phone. It comes with a design that is similar to the flagship series, yet the plastic back really gives it a much cheaper look. It also does feature the BoomSound speakers, which is always a plus.
Opinion: I am all for making a more affordable version of the HTC One M9, but only if it’s really more affordable. Sometimes the price discounts are not enough to justify a cheaper, plastic build. We’ll just have to wait and see how HTC handles this.
Remember that game Square Enix was working on recently? Yes, I am talking about Final Fantasy: Record Keeper. This 8-bit-like game is meant to take you through all the main battles in every single Final Fantasy game. The idea would be to re-live these battles as you try to save the Final Fantasy universe.
Intrigued? The game is actually pretty awesome. I have spend some time with it and am already hooked. I will confess I am an avid Final Fantasy fan, though. You may as well check it out, as it is free to play. It does have in-app purchases, if you want to get a head start in the game.
Opinion: Be careful with the in-app purchases. I already spent about $9 trying to get a hold of Cloud’s Buster Sword. No more!
