This week's Game Centered gives you a brief introduction to this latest installment in Gameloft's highly successful Modern Combat series.
It begins tonight. Superman, Batman, and Wonderwoman. The Hulk, Green Lantern, Thor, and Captain America. Not to mention various forms of Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Darth Vader. And those are just a few of the science-fiction-, fantasy- and manga-inspired characters that will descend on San Diego beginning on Wednesday, July 23, for Comic-Con.

If you haven't moved away from your native calendar app, now is the time.
Sunrise Calendar (free, Sunrise Atelier) is, in my opinion, the best native calendar app replacement out there. The design boasts beautiful, simple and modern design as well as a monthly view and daily view like the native iOS app. It also allows users to add Google, Facebook, and iCloud calendars with ease. Reminders can also be seen in the calendar view, if you wish. The latest update lets users add "interesting calendars," like sports schedules, moon phases, and holidays.
