SwitchArcade Round-Up: ‘Monster Harvest’, ‘KeyWe’, ‘Lamentum’, Plus Today’s Other New Releases and the Latest Sales

Hello gentle readers, and welcome to the SwitchArcade Round-Up for August 31st, 2021. Today’s article is mostly dedicated to summarizing the new releases of the day. There are a larger number than usual for a Tuesday, and at least a few of them are worth thinking about. Besides that, we’ve got the lists of incoming and expiring sales for you to mull over. That’s about it. I meant to have another review ready today, but I feel asleep a little early last night so it will have to wait. Anyway, let’s get to what we’ve got! New Releases Monster Harvest ($19.99) It feels like this game has been on the cusp of release for a long time now, but it’s finally here. The idea here is to take a heaping tablespoon of Stardew Valley and mix in a little Pokemon-style monster collecting. There is a season-change system, a town with people and creatures to build relationships with, a crafting system with lots of items to make, and some dungeons to explore. I’ll have a review of this one soon if you need more to go on. Rustler ($29.99) This game has a really cool premise but its execution is a bit wanting, unfortunately. The idea here is basically medieval-era top-down GTA. The game jokingly refers to itself as Grand Theft Horse, even. It jokingly does a lot of things,...

Only 18% of US Android users would even consider iPhone 13, says report

Credit: Robert Triggs / Android Authority An Android loyalty survey points to only 18.3% of United States Android users being interested in the next iPhone. This number is actually down by a whopping 14.8% from this time last year. The lack of features Android users care about is cited as the main reason for the dismal interest. The next slate of iPhones — tentatively known as the iPhone 13 series — is coming up quickly, likely launching in September. As with every year, this gets some folks wondering: how many Android users are planning to jump ship? According to a new survey from SellCell, not too many. The used technology service asked over 5,000 Android users based in the United States if they were interested in the iPhone 13. A whopping 81.7% said “Nah.” See also: The best Android phones you can get right now That leaves just 18.3% who are even considering ending their Android loyalty streak. Interestingly, SellCell conducted a similar survey last year that found nearly 33% of Android users were considering an iPhone. That’s a drop of nearly 15% in just one year.
