Sega has released its anticipated new Crazy Taxi: City Rush game today for iOS. Unlike its predecessor which goes for $4.99, the new Crazy Taxi game is free-to-play.

This is the first title in the series that was specifically designed for mobile from the ground up and promises an enhanced take on what made the original so addictive. Players get “one-touch, intuitive controls” that allow you to “speed, drift, whip around corners, weave through traffic, up ramps and into the air. The crazier you drive the higher your rewards.”

The original title was ported to mobile devices in 2012 and has received 4 stars from 7121 Ratings. The creator of the original Dreamcast Crazy Taxi game, Kenji Kanno, is back at the helm on City Rush alongside Hardlight Studios who were previously responsible for Sonic Dash and Sonic Jump.

Assassin's Creed Pirates-Android-sale-01

Ubisoft is offering Assassin’s Creed Pirates for almost FREE right now on Google Play. You can pick up the game for just $0.10 down from the usual $6, beating the lowest we’ve seen it go for on Android.

Following the story Alonzo Batilla, “a young and ambitious captain,” players will engage in intense naval combat with more than 50 story missions spread across a “vast array of islands” in the Caribbean. You can also expect more on the struggle between templars and Assassin’s from the main console series as well as some notable faces from last year’s Black Flag including Blackbeard, Sam Bellamy and Ben Hornigold. The game also features much of the ship/crew customization and leveling aspects along with an impressive weather system for a mobile title.

The game has picked up mostly positive reviews and has scored big with Android users at 4 stars from 25,515 ratings. Be sure to check our daily roundups for all the best deals in gaming and head below for AC Pirates Naval Combat trailer.

Amazon launches a new custom 3D printing storefront

Amazon 3D Printer Store 02Amazon has launched a new custom 3D Printing Store. While the online retail giant has sold a number of affordable 3D printers for some time now, the new storefront offers a selection of customizable 3D printed items to choose from including phone cases, wallets, home decor items, toys, jewelry, bobble-heads and more.

The amount of customization available varies depending on the item. You’ll see everything from basic color selections to deeper choices like size and texture options as well as custom text and item specific tweaks.

While there are some stock goods that don’t have any customization available, on items like the $30 Bobble-head dolls from Mixee Labs, Amazon has provided a mini editor with everything from hair, eye and face selections as well as outfits with custom text and more. With something like the $60 custom 3D printed cuff links, buyers can choose any 3 letter monogram, the color and material as well as the shape.

We have seen more home 3D printers approaching affordable prices like the upcoming New Matter MOD-t (which is currently up for preorder at $249), but the new 3D Printer Store offers a nice option for those who haven’t dived into the 3D printer space yet. Most of the highly rated and best selling home 3D printers will still run you anywhere from $499 to over $1000.

The stylus is designed to look and feel like a traditional carpenter’s pencil, with flat-sided design intended to be comfortable to hold and assist with accurate lines. The exterior is real wood (walnut from sustainable forests), and there are no buttons.

Currently, the Pencil is only compatible with Paper by FiftyThree for iPad, Noteshelf and Procreate, however it was recently announced that more apps will soon be enabled to utilize the stylus.

Jump into the world of LED light bulbs for less than $5 a pop with Ikea Ledare

At this point it’s extremely clear that LED bulbs should be in every light fixture in your house. They last longer (tens of thousands of hours) and use less power (up to 85%) than their incandescent counterparts. The clear environmental benefits coupled with the fact that LED prices have fallen off a cliff recently, have led to a worldwide phase-out of incandescent bulbs. In fact, you can regularly pick up a Philips LED bulb for under $10 a piece, but Ikea has shaken up the budget LED space by introducing its Ledare bulbs for just $4.95 each.

Ledare bulbs can’t be controlled by your iPhone like Philips Hue products or double as a JBL Bluetooth speaker, but they do pack the basic benefits of LED bulbs at bargain pricing. Read more
