The streaming market is about to get very crowded with heavy hitters like Apple and Disney preparing to throw their hat in the ring. Consumers already have a ton of choices with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and specialty services like HBO GO, WWE Network and CBS All Access. Users are going to have to decide what movies and television shows are worth watching and subscribe accordingly, and Warner Bros.' DC Universe should be a serious contender for fans of the superhero genre.
App of the Week
It was a lackluster week on the Apple App Store with mostly freemium titles being released. That doesn't mean there wasn't anything worth playing, just that there wasn't any title that stood out as the App of the Week. Here is a quick look at 5 games worth checking out during a slow week of releases.
Cure Hunters (Free) Side-scrolling, platform fans will want to check out Cure Hunters. A virus has infected most of earth's population and General "Vaccinez" has formed a squad of "Cure Hunters" to set out to find an antidote. You play as "Dr. Dellton" who has been ordered to clear an infected area. This roguelite platform title features simple onscreen controls with one button, fast-paced shooting. You can collect a variety of characters with unique guns as you blast fun looking pixel art aliens.
The PlayStation 4 has been updated to support remote play on iOS devices. This allows you to remotely play compatible PS4 games on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Games can be played over Wi-Fi using the on-screen buttons. Unfortunately you cannot use the DUALSHOCK 4 with remote play.
Distrust is a horror survival game inspired by the 1982 film The Thing. In the game players control a team called the Cheerdealers who are forced to stay in an Arctic base after their helicopter crashes. The goal of the game is to search for provisions and stay alive in freezing Arctic temperatures until you can escape.
This week we're checking out some of the best Apple App Store pre-orders and titles that could be potential future Apps of the Week. Apple introduced the ability to pre-order games in early 2018 to allow developers to create buzz for upcoming titles. Pre-orders also allow developers to offer discounts to those who purchase a game before its release. All pre-ordered games automatically download to a user's device within 24-hours of its official release date, and users get the lowest listed price up until at title's launch.
