133

Great news for those who watch America’s favorite pastime, aka Major League Baseball (MLB), as their official app for the 2013 season is now available for free download.

Earlier this morning, we reported that Expansys Canada was selling the SIM unlocked Nokia Lumia 925 for CDN $714.56, which seemed a bit pricey for our tastes and evidently yours (Expansys has a mixed reputation, according to comments).

Nokia Lumia 625 up for preorder in Russia; asking for 11990 rubles, please

29

The Nokia Lumia 625 is the next device set to be released by Nokia in the coming weeks. First announced two-weeks ago, the new Lumia is being angled as a more premium entry-level device. Its secret is of course the 4.7-inch ClearBlack display and the slightly bumped specs from its tiny brother, the Lumia 620. For instance, it rocks a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, which may just make the difference for speed versus the previous 1.0 GHz models.

28

There's nothing worse than purchasing a Windows Phone, but not able to rock the night away with apps and games from the store.

Luckily there's light at the end of the tunnel as LiveSino reports that it's now possible to alter your region and then download content from the store that's not published for China.

Godville, a hassle free RPG game for Windows Phone 8

16

Godville may be one of the more unique games available for your Windows Phone 8 devices. It is labeled a Zero Player Game (ZPG) that has the elements of a Role Playing Game (RPG) but not the hassle of having to deal with waiting for other players to take a turn, manage level ups, and all the other work involved in playing such games.

With Godville you play the role of the local god and the hardest task is probably finding a name for your hero, who does all the heavy lifting.

Sure there are a few interactions you can have with your hero but for the most part, Godville is a sit back, relax and do very little type game. Godville is an acquired taste and it takes a little time to get a handle on, but if you give it a try Godville may surprise you.
