Google’s Chrome 69 hides a disturbing twist: if you log into Gmail or another Google service, Chrome seems to automatically log you into the browser as well. Theoretically, that means that you will automatically begin sharing data with Google, like it or not.The confusion comes from a new way in which Google shows your “logged in” status. Previously, if you were signed in to Chrome, an icon would appear in the upper right-hand corner, indicating that you were signed in and sharing data. The same icon now appears if you’re logged into a Google service like Google.com or Gmail, but…

Konami has officially announced Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood exclusively for PlayStation 4, launching this October. Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night & Rondo of Blood has been announced for PS4 with an October 26 release date. We first got wind of the game last week, when an ESRB listing was spotted for the title in Korea. Just a few days ago, it was rated for the west, but we still hadn’t had official confirmation from Konami. The trailer has since dropped on YouTube and the company’s Twitter account.

Last year I called Elgato’s Stream Deck “a valuable tool in anyone’s streaming kit.” Long known for affordable capture equipment, Elgato had entered another important hardware niche and created an inexpensive video switcher—one that was only the size of a card deck. With multiple customizable buttons, you could manage all facets of your streaming process without every leaving your primary screen.But maybe even a card deck is too large, and maybe the Stream Deck’s 15 OLED buttons were overkill, because now Elgato’s returned with the Stream Deck Mini—a smaller, scaled-back, and even cheaper version (at $99.95 on Amazon) of the…

If you’ve made it this far, it’s already too late. The phenomenon known as Bowsette is dominating the internet and there’s no turning back from the character created through a cruel morphing of Peach and Bowser. Seriously, the Bowsette hybrid has gone on to inspire countless amounts of fan art, cosplay, and even a custom amiibo in just a matter of days. Most depict Bowsette as Peach donned with black apparel, spikes, two horns, and a strange affect that makes it hard to look away. What makes this lunacy even more absurd is the fact that Bowsette is actually Bowser…
