In the wake of a world where Flappy Bird is no longer downloadable (See ‘Flappy Bird’ Taken Down…), a few smart people decided to do some Flappy Bird Sales by selling their phones with the app pre-installed which is now worth more than $10,000 on eBay according to these listings:
In the aftermath of ‘Flappy Bird’ success, creator Dong Nguyen has had it with all the attention that he’s been getting the past week. This is what Nguyen had to say after the huge backlash:
So what’s the story behind this franchise? Well, we all know what happened to the return of the king of FPS in the 2011 Duke Nukem Forever. Indeed, the king made a comeback but now as much as fans hoped for a more spectacular one. Gearbox’s intentions were obviously on the good side but not so much on the side of the consumer including critics. So is a new Duke Nukem game coming? Yes…but once again not the way you expected.

A Battlefield 4 patch update has been released today weighing at around 993MB for the PlayStation 4 Console. The patch makes significant changes to all DMR weapons.
DMR Balance Tweaks
- Increased the damage of all DMRs across all ranges. Specifically, damage has been increased at long ranges to allow three-hit kills against unarmored opponents. Additionally, reduced the penalty to accuracy for sustained DMR fire, allowing more rapid follow up shots in combat.

We will continue to monitor the effectiveness of DMRs in combat, and determine if additional action is needed to make DMRs a viable mid to long range weapon.
