The same team that developed "BioShock" is back with another survival horror game. Called "Perception," the game recently placed a pitch on the crowdfunding site Kickstarter to fund the game's development. The game is considered a "true" horror game in the sense that it does not have the player rely on weapons, but it lets the player make use of his or her innate skills in survival.
"Perception" falls into that category nicely because the game provides an additional challenge to the player. In the game, the player plays blind, without the use of his or her eyesight. A player needs to go through the game only through the use of echolocation, which makes it additionally difficult to determine who is friend or foe.
Based on the game's trailer on the Kickstarter site, the lack of sight makes the game extra horrifying. Although it may seem at first that echolocation is difficult to implement in a game like this, the trailer proves that it can be done. more >>
While Japanese consumers enjoy Sony's latest flagship phone, the Xperia Z4, the rest of the world will receive a humbler version of the unit -- the Xperia Z3+.

Last month, the Japanese electronics company released the Xperia Z4 locally, exclusive for mobile users in the country. Yesterday, another version was launched for an international audience, albeit renamed the Z3+, with a scheduled release date in June. more >>
The newest iteration of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 9, is expected to unveiled in next week's Worldwide Developers Conference, the company's annual conference to be held in San Francisco. Codenamed "Monarch," iOS 9 will be announced at the conference and if Apple follows its usual software update schedule, will be publicly revealed in September.
A report in Tech Times presents a list of features that can be expected in the new OS. The list includes a new typeface for the OS, introduction of a new Smart Home app, optimization for older devices and stricter anti-jailbreaking measures. The report also notes that the new OS will be focusing more on "quality and stability" rather than introducing a slew of new features.
The typeface of the new OS will reportedly be changed from the existing Helvetica Neue, which has been in use since iOS 7, to the San Francisco font, which is what the Apple Watch is currently using. This is an apparent move to integrate the look of its newest product line with its existing product lines. more >>
A new character in "Mortal Kombat X," Tanya, will be arriving via its own DLC in early June, according to the game's creator, Ed Boon. Boon recently took to Twitter to share the good news to "Mortal Kombat" fans, who have been all but quiet about wanting to see new characters they can play in the game.
Responding to a fan's earlier tweet, Boon shared a picture of the upcoming character, accompanied with a rhyme to boot: "She's koming soon, In early June, Or my name ain't Boon." Tanya is a character that was introduced in "Mortal Kombat IV." She is coming back again to "Mortal Kombat X." Although Boon did not specify a date, his announcement at least gives the game's fan some idea on the release window of the DLC.
The character of Tanya, according to a report in Cinema Blend, is a worshipper of Shinook, but is said to have been allied with other bad guys in the series. In "Mortal Kombat X," she is allied with Mileena. Her skills are in acrobatic fighting and she can use fire magic to make her blows even more lethal. In some games, she has the power to be invisible. And like other characters in the game, she comes in three variations that players can choose from: Kobu Jutsu, Dragon Naginata and Pyromancer. more >>
