Now Android fans can play one of the greatest computer games ever on their tablets

Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition Android

Old-school RPG fans still get nostalgic when you bring up Baldur’s Gate, the classic Bioware D&D-based adventure that set the standard for computer RPGs when it was released all the way back in 1998. In fact, the Balur’s Gate series’s popularity has been so enduring that studio Beamdog has overhauled it with improved graphics and features while also adding touch controls to make it easy to play on tablets. Although Beamdog released its Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for the iPad a while ago, the studio has finally gotten around to porting it to Android, and it’s now available on the Google Play store for $ 9.99. Although the iPad version of the overhauled Baldur’s Gate received mixed marks for its buggy controls, early reviews of the game over at Google Play are pretty strong, as it’s currently averaging a score of 4.5 stars based on 72 reviews.

Android Phishing Apps Security Flaw

Security firm FireEye has discovered a major security flaw in Google’s mobile operating system, ComputerWorld reports, which could allow an attacker to modify the behavior of an app icon in the launcher in order to send users to a malicious site that would collect personal data. It’s not clear whether any apps in the Google Play Store, or anywhere else, have already used this particular security issue to steal data from users. Google has apparently acknowledged the problem and already released a patch to OEM partners, though it will be a while until the fix hits affected Android devices.
