Google is said to be building an Android-powered game console in part as a preemptive strike against Apple, reports The Wall Street Journal. Additionally, an Android wristwatch and revamped Nexus Q media-streaming device are rumored to be in the works. Sources say that at least one of these three will be available later this fall.

The latest version of Android -- reportedly "better tailored" to lower-cost smartphones -- is also expected to arrive in fall. The publication's sources say Google has been watching the Android-based Ouya console which, yikes, poor Ouya if this ends up coming to fruition. Unfortunately for them, this is one of those rumors that sounds totally believable.

Dragon Quest II is now available on your phone, (not you, Windows Phone users) something that would have surely been unthinkable when the classic role-playing game first debuted over two decades ago.

Review: Neverending Nightmares

Mental illness is terrifying. Depression is a soul vampire that will suck the light right out of you. Obsessive compulsive disorder does not make you a supernaturally great detective like it does in the movies. It makes you p...more
