Of burning blushes or of weeping water,<p>Who's heard of Star Wars? – Everyone? – Good. You'll also know that in a rather unexpected turn of events, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens made a sudden appearance on iOS last month. In a similar fashion, however, today out on Android with its first chapter absolutely free.</p><p>Lego games may not be the most innovative creatures but they're still fun through their repetition, and Lego Star Wars is no exception. Run around, smash things, collect things, get to the end of the level, progress – it's a formula that works.</p><p>Where the first chapter may be free on both platforms to lure in hopeful young minds, the subsequent chapters are not so be prepared to splash out about $7-$10 if you want to complete the game.</p><p>Grab Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens here on Android, or if you still haven't gotten the iOS version get it on iTunes here. </p>
<p>The maker of mobile benchmarking tool GameBench has used its software to pit iOS against Android in the one criterion that really matters: gaming performance.</p><p>The team compared Apple's iPhone 6 with three Android-powered devices: the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Nexus 6, and the HTC One M9, and measured their frame rates while playing a number of high-end games.</p><p>The GameBench tool runs in the background on each device, while testers play the same level on the same game, with the same graphical settings, for 15 minutes a pop.</p><p>The games tested included Asphalt 8, Dead Trigger 2, Modern Combat 5: Blackout, Marvel: Contest of Champions, GTA: San Andreas, and Monument Valley.</p><p>The team was looking at three specific factors surrounding frames per second: the median FPS, the minimum FPS, and FPS stability. In all three metrics, a higher score is better.</p><p>Each game perfomed quite differently with some running better on an Android and others on iOS. But when averaged across all the games, the iPhone 6 won in all three criteria.</p><p>The Apple device "tended to have the highest median frame rate (40fps) and the highest minimum frame rate (32fps)," says GameBench. "It was the only device in our ranking to maintain an average minimum frame rate above 30fps".</p><p>The iPhone 6 also had the greatest frame rate stability of all the test devices, with a rock solid 92 percent.</p><p>The Galaxy S6 wasn't too far behind, mind you, with a median of 36fps, a minimum of 29fps, and a stability of 84 percent. The other Android devices didn't perform so well, with more frequent drops below 30fps.</p><p>GameBench is aware that the tests aren't perfect. The Galaxy S6 has a much higher screen resolution than the iPhone 6, for example, meaning games need to push more pixels.</p><p>And the firm says a number of factors could be behind the Android downfall. "Poor gameplay can result from poor optimisation of the device, poor optimisation of the game or game engine, differences in screen resolution, RAM, or the design of the processor".</p><p>But whatever the case, iPhone users now have one more reason to be insufferably pleased with themselves.</p><p>You can get the full report on GameBench's blog.</p>
A CAT, hearing that the Birds in a certain aviary were ailing dressed himself up as a physician, and, taking his cane and a bag of instruments becoming his profession, went to call on them. He knocked at the door and inquired of the inmates how they all did, saying that if they were ill, he would be happy to prescribe for them and cure them. They replied, "We are all very well, and shall continue so, if you will only be good enough to go away, and leave us as we are."
Have emptied all their fountains in my well,<p>PUBG Mobile's Star Challenge came to a head over the weekend, and the event ended with a sizable announcement. Turns out Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake and PUBG Mobile will be having some sort of crossover event.</p><p>Little is currently known about what sort of form the event will take. At the very least, I reckon we'll start seeing Resi-themed in-game clothing and frying pans popping up pretty soon. The remake is set for release on January 25th, so I suppose we might not have to wait too long to find out.</p>
