Last week we learned that along with the new Superman movie, Warner Brothers would also be releasing a game to go alongside the new release for Android. If you aren’t a movie aficionado, Superman: Man of Steel hit theaters today in the USA, or late last night for those hitting the midnight showing. And for you fans, the game did too. Just as expected. Man of Steel the game has flown onto the Google Play Store as of late last night, and will bring all those superhero powers to our Android devices. We saw the teaser trailer earlier this month, but the game is now available for all those interested, but it will cost you. As you can see from the video below, as well as the pictures from the Play Store, this looks like another swipe and slash style Infinity Blade title. This means you’ll be swiping on screen, tapping for throwing punches and more in a simple turn-by-turn combat style. The graphics look fairly decent, as does the gameplay, and it could be worth enjoying over the weekend. The title will loosely follow the movie, so you might not want to play until after you’ve seen the film. Unless you enjoy spoilers. You’ll be able to fight bosses, earn power-ups, and collect 6 different Superman suits along the way. For more details or to give this new movie-inspired mediocre looking game a try hit the link below. It will run you $ 4.99 so let us know below if it is any good.

To overgeneralize, in foreign policy I consider Susan Rice and Samantha Power to be "liberal interventionists." What is American power for, if it is not to do good in the world? (Rice at center, Power at left in Reuters photo.) In the same broad strokes, I consider Barack Obama to be a "liberal non-interventionist," or more simply still a "realist." How long will American power last, if we are not very careful about how we use it? If Dwight Eisenhower were alive, this would be the category for him. (And, as the Eisenhower comparison probably reveals, this is the outlook I am most comfortable with.) Obama's main deviation from this pattern was his approval in 2009 of the temporary troop surge in Afghanistan. But he made this decision only a few months into his term, and the evidence suggests that he later regretted buying the arguments/promises/fantasies from Generals Petraeus and McChrystal that with more time, troops, and money the Afghanistan war could be won. The liberal-realist president has now elevated two prominent exponents of a liberal-interventionist view different from his own. Does this suggest a change in overall Administration policy? I doubt it (despite an argument that it might, from Fred Kaplan ). The available evidence also suggests that — ever more so the deeper he goes into his service — Obama knows and trusts his own judgment, even to a fault. So you can argue that it's a positive sign that a president is c

Let me preface by saying that I am almost 31 years old and I am still a fan of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and have been since the day they premiered in America. I’m not ashamed to admit it. Notice I said the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers , not just Power Rangers . I prefer the originals (US originals, I haven’t seen much of the Japanese originals to properly judge). I haven’t been a fan of most of the other variations starting with Lost Galaxy . Although I wasn’t a big fan of Turbo because they replaced Rocky with a little kid (that little twerp pissed me off to no avail), but In Space wasn’t too awful. Tommy was always my favorite character, so after he left it pretty much stopped caring. With every new series, the luster of the show faded more and more. It became quite uninteresting. Maybe it was because I was growing older and the show was geared more towards the younger generations, or maybe it had something to do with the fact that I felt like each new series was just a regurgitated version of the original. Just a copy of a copy of copy (and so on), each one weaker than the last. It could have something to do with the acting getting worse each time. I’m not saying that the original series was worthy of an Emmy or anything, but the acting in it was 10 times better than any in the later incarnations. I’ve seen part of an episode of the new Power Rangers Samurai and it wasn’t half bad. I can’t say that it’s anything fantas

Kyle Orland UPDATE: The original version of this story misstated the 300,000-server capacity for Xbox One's cloud computing architecture as 30,000 servers. Ars regrets the error. While Tuesday's Xbox One presentation answered some questions about Microsoft's upcoming system, it left just as many or more unsettled. Luckily, Ars got a chance to sit down with General Manager of Redmond Game Studios

In a free society the government is transparent and citizens have privacy – in America the situation is reversed. The government is allowed to invoke secrecy whenever it likes as the citizenry gradually lose all their privacy. And now a government task force spearheaded by the FBI wants to take what remains of privacy in America. Upset by technological innovation and people doing things they can’t easily spy on, the FBI wants broader authority to force companies like Facebook and Google to give them user information. A government task force is preparing legislation that would pressure companies such as Facebook and Google to enable law enforcement officials to intercept online communications as they occur, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. Driven by FBI concerns that it is unable to tap the Internet communications of terrorists and other criminals, the task force’s proposal would penalize companies that failed to heed wiretap orders — court authorizations for the government to intercept suspects’ communications. Right, it’s all about criminals and terrorists. You know like the Boston Bombers which were already on the watch list but the FBI dropped the ball. It couldn’t be that the FBI actually wants to monitor political dissenters. Oh wait, yes that is why. Under the draft proposal, a court could levy a series of escalating fines, starting at tens of thousands of dollars, on firms that fail

Channeling the old-school energy of legendary acts like Cro-Mags, Nuclear Assault and Leeway through modern thrash warfare, Texas crossover battalion POWER TRIP has wrapped up production on their debut LP for Southern Lord and today distributes the details on the beast that is Manifest Decimation . Amidst massive touring over the past five years, and having unloaded a cache of demos, splits and D.I.Y. releases along the way, the high-powered metallic punk/hardcore attack of Dallas-based POWER TRIP caught the attention of Southern Lord, who brought the crew on-board for the release of their first full-length. Recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Argyle, Texas, and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon’s Gate in Philadelphia, the eight tracks on Manifest Decimation hurtle the band’s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with thirty-five minutes of crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite. The intense album layout was created by Italian artist Paolo “Madman” Girardi, completing this vile package for delivery via Southern Lord on June 11th, 2013. The opening and title track Manifest Decimation has been let off the chain today via Pitchfork – FREE THE BEAST HERE . Manifest Decimation Track Listing: 1. Manifest Decimation 2. Heretic’s Fork 3.

(Reuters) – Secretary of State John Kerry warned North Korea on Friday it would be a “huge mistake” to launch a medium-range missile and said the United States would never accept the reclusive country as a nuclear power. Addressing reporters after talks with South Korea’s president and leaders of the 28,000-strong U.S. military contingent in the country, Kerry also said it was up to China , North Korea’s sole major ally, to “put some teeth” in efforts to press Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear ambitions. Kerry, like other U.S. officials, played down an assessment from the Pentagon’s intelligence agency that the North already had a nuclear missile capacity.

Home Appliance:Kitakyushu Mayor Kenji Kitahashi (left) and Yoshiharu Yomamoto, Honda Motor Co. senior managing officer and director, demonstrate the carmaker's home power supply system based on fuel-cell cars Tuesdayin the city./Kyodo Kyodo, JIJI-Japan Times KITAKYUSHU – Honda Motor Co. on Tuesday began testing a system to supply electricity to single-family homes from fuel-cell vehicles. Honda will continue testing the system, designed to examine how much power such a system could provide, by supplying electricity to a single-family house once a week between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in Kitakyushu. The experiment is expected to last two years until the end of fiscal 2014. The maximum power output of the fuel-cell vehicle used in the experiment is 9 kw, covering six days of power used in an average household, according to Honda and the city of Kitakyushu. A fuel-cell car is powered by electricity produced by combining hydrogen and oxygen and has a greater power capacity than an electric vehicle. It takes only three or four minutes to fill a fuel-cell vehicle with liquid hydrogen, less time than it takes to charge an electric vehicle. Fuel-cell vehicles are attracting attention as a power source in the event of an emergency.
