Westworld mobile game first look

You may not be able to be a guest in Westworld, but you can be something better: an employee!

I would have a difficult time finding someone that hasn’t at least heard of the HBO series Westworld, which takes place in a dystopian universe where a giant amusement park filled with truly humanistic androids are the play things of the truly inhuman humans.

Galaxy S9, plus.

It’s easy to imagine that companies like LG, Huawei, Sony and others were more than a little relieved when Samsung didn’t announce the Galaxy S8 at last year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The mobile- and cellular-focused show has taken over from January’s CES as the place hardware vendors launch their early-year flagships, and there was plenty to get excited about in 2017.

This year, there’s still a lot to look forward to, but some  [Read More…]
