The Samsung Galaxy Fold features one of the largest displays ever on a smartphone. How does that translate for gaming? In this video I play various mobile games on the Samsung Galaxy Fold including PUBG (Player Unknown Battleground). The Galaxy Fold hardware can handle any mobile title but how does the unusual aspect ratio deal with the wide variety of mobile android games?

Two weeks have passed since The Witness was made free to download for Epic Games Store members, which means the latest PC game giveaway is now here. Next up is Transistor, the acclaimed science-fiction action RPG from Supergiant Games, who also made Bastion and Pyre. From now through May 2, you can download Transistor for free from the Epic Games Store, and it’ll be yours to keep. If you don’t already have an Epic Games account, it’s free to create one, and it’s well worth your time, as these free PC game giveaways are happening every two weeks this year to celebrate the Epic Store’s first 12 months in business.
Transistor tells the story of a famous singer named Red who is attacked by a robotic force known as The Process. After escaping, Red stumbles across a glowing sword called the Transistor, and wielding its power, she resolves to hunt down the sinister group controlling The Process and save the city of Cloudbank from invasion. The battles involve turn-based strategy, and like most RPGs, Red earns experience points that allow her to unlock new powers. In GameSpot’s Transistor review, critic Carolyn Petit praised the game for its unique, compelling narrative, empowering combat, and overall superb visuals and musical score.
“Transistor asks you to trust in it, to come along on the journey even though you have no idea where you’re going,” wrote Petit. “And it rewards your trust, weaving a beautiful and unconventional sci-fi tale with a human heart, and empowering you with a wonderfully flexible combat system that fuses real-time and turn-based action to create something that feels unique.”
On May 2, Transistor will be replaced by Epic’s next free PC game, World of Goo, a puzzle game that involves building with globs of goo.
Fortnite Season 8 is now in its eighth week, which means there are new challenges to be completed. You can see a full list of the Season 8, Week 8 challenges here, and you’ll no doubt notice that there are a few tricky ones among them. One of those asks players to “search the treasure map signpost found in Paradise Palms.”
This is a multi-stage challenge and has two parts. Naturally, treasure hunts can lead to a lot of head-scratching and aimless wandering, but we’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen. To save you time and effort, we’ve completed the challenge and put together a guide that shows you exactly where you need to go and what you need to do.
To complete this challenge, you’ll need to first head to Paradise Palms–obviously. More specifically, you’ll need to head to the center of the area and find the little alley there. Stick to the rooftops and you’ll spot the map signpost on a wall below you. For part two of the challenge, you’ll need to follow the map to find the Battle Star. It actually leads you to Frosty Flights, specifically at the end of the runway. Once you’ve made it there, the challenge should complete.
Take a look at the map below for more details on where you can find the Battle Star.

Signpost Treasure Map: This is located at the center of Paradise Palms in an alley behind the building there.
Treasure Map Battle Star Location: Frosty Flights at the end of the runway.
If you still need a hand completing challenges, make sure to check out our complete Fortnite Season 8 challenge guide. We’ve been keeping that up to date with guides on the difficult challenges on a week-by-week basis. Season 8 is going to start to wind down soon, so if you want to unlock all the cosmetics, that companion piece will be very useful.
In other Fortnite news, a new LTM oriented around dogfighting has been added to the game. Patch 8.40 introduced Air Royale, which lets players “pilot the X-4 Stormwing in this Limited-Time Mode as you fight to become the last plane flying! Complete free Challenges to unlock brand-new Wraps as you rule the skies.”
Epic has also thrown the Food Fight LTM back into the mix, but this time it’s in the form of a variant called Deep Fried. There are a number of other tweaks and changes to the game, and you can see it all in the Fortnite update 8.40 patch notes.
Coming to Amazon Prime Video on July 26 is the latest comic book adaptation, The Boys. Amazon recently revealed the first trailer for the upcoming show, and it is most certainly not safe for work. Seriously, watch this on your own time.
Based on the Dynamite comic of the same name, the series follows a world where superheroes have become celebrities, and a group titled The Boys are tasked with covering up said heroes’ screw-ups when they abuse their powers. Check out the first trailer for the series below.
The Boys are made up of Hughie (Jack Quaid), Billy Butcher (Karl Urban), Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso), Frenchie (Tomer Capon), and The Female (Karen Fukuhara). Additionally, Simon Pegg guest stars as Hughie’s father. There are also the featured superheroes on this series, The Supes of the Seven, which consists of Homelander (Antony Starr), Starlight (Erin Moriarty), Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott), A-Train (Jessie T. Usher), The Deep (Chace Crawford), and Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell).
The original comic series, which also was for a more adult audience, debuted in 2006 under the Wildstorm banner–before moving to Dynamite six months later. It was created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson, and the series was known for its over-the-top moments.
GameSpot spoke with Simon Pegg back at New York Comic-Con about his role and the adaptation as a whole. “They showed me the stuff that they’d already shot that was surprising and shocking, but for all the right reasons,” he said. “I think Garth almost and Darick together, obviously because Darick Robertson was drawing it, together they were trying to almost dare somebody to adapt it. It was almost the unadaptable comic book, even more so than Preacher I think.”
One of the best qualities in Japanese Horror is the use of atmosphere; infusing environments with a sense of dread that instills players with fear and anxiety. Bloody Disgusting looks at some of the more interesting examples of it in video game form.
The Indie Game Website writes: “Bullet hell games are always difficult to evaluate. They are designed to leave players overwhelmed by a barrage of projectiles and hazards, daring us to find some semblance of order and pattern in their maximalism. Hell is Other Demons, though, offsets the pandemonium of the genre with a tangible sense of style. Playing Hell is Other Demons is like discovering a dusty old arcade cabinet that tempts you with a fluorescent hue before hooking you with its devilish mechanics.”
