Licensed games all-but-disappeared for a few years there, swept into the trash alongside a bevy of B-tier studios. But I guess they?re back?and way weirder this time around, too. Adaptations of both Planet of the Apes and Animal Farm were announced this week, and the Pillars of the Earth point-and-click hit Steam. I can only imagine Ken Kesey?s logging classicSometimes a Great Notion is next. Maybe Call of Duty: Catch-22?

That, plus Destiny briefly sort-of pops up on Steam, Total Warhammer II adds the ratlike Skaven, and Civilization gets adapted into board game form.

This is gaming news for August 14 to 18.

Note: The following is part of ourroundup of USB-C battery packs.Go there for details on how we tested this device.

Samsung may have earned the honor of being at the end of random battery jokes, and suggesting a battery pack from Samsung may seem unlikely. But just put the Note 7 debacle in a box?keep it there, just in case something else bad happens.

Now, look at the Fast Charge Portable Battery Pack 5100. This $59 pack has a 5100 mAh (19.38Wh) capacity, is slightly thicker than a Galaxy S8, and is easy on the eyes.
A carrying loop sticks out of the top, with a power button and a USB-C port for charging the pack found on one side. On the other side you?ll find a USB-A port, used to charge your phone.

Aukey 30000 PowerBank with Power Delivery review: A respectable upgrade

Note: The following is part of ourroundup of USB-C battery packs.Go there for details on how we tested this device.

The Aukey 30000 Power Bank was last year?s top pick, despite a couple of flaws. Its price point, combined with Quick Charge (QC) 3.0 and a handy flashlight (as gimmicky as it may sound) were enough to propel it to the top.

The current model (available for $80 on Amazon) adds Power Delivery (PD) charging, extending its compatibility to more devices, such as a MacBooks.

Elgato Stream Deck review: A streamer's best friend

Pro-grade equipment at a bargain price. That?s the reputation Elgato earned as first YouTube videos and then Twitch streaming took over video games. Straddling a line between hobbyist and professional-grade?a line that?s hard to walk competently, I might add?Elgato?s capture cards have become a mainstay of streamers at all levels.

The Stream Deck, Elgato?s latest piece of hardware, is something altogether different: A video switcher (or mixer), not a capture card. But aside from some early-days software issues, it?s poised to be just as important a piece of kit for a certain tier of creatives.

Power at your fingertips

Video switchers are a fairly standard (and boring) part of multi-camera broadcasts. If you?ve ever watched a sporting event or another live broadcast, chances are a switcher was employed?it allows a producer to switch between multiple camera feeds on the fly, rather than sticking a camera on a tripod and calling it a day. Usually it?s a big gray rectangle full of dials, levers, and color-coded buttons.

What to do when your laptop's touchpad stops working

When your laptop?s touchpad stops responding to your fingers, you?ve got a problem.Have you ever tried to use a Windows PC without a mouse, touchpad, or other pointing device? It?s all but impossible.

If the problem just started, reboot your computer and see if that fixes it. (Yes, I know that?s painfully obvious, but we all sometimes overlook the obvious.) If that doesn?t work, try these solutions.

First, make sure you haven?t accidentally disabled the touchpad. In all likelihood, there?s a key combination that will toggle the touchpad on and off. It usually involves holding down the Fn key (which is probably near the lower-left corner of the keyboard) while pressing another key.

How to change your email address without losing your friends

Think of all the places where your old email address resides, outside of your immediate control, waiting to give people plenty of false information. There are other people?s address books, old messages in people?s inboxes, websites that use your address as your logon name, and your business cards.

Changing your email address can be quite a chore.

1. Keep the old address for a little while

The first thing you need to do is check with your old mail provider and find out how long you can keep the old address and at what price. It?s probably worth the money to keep it for at least a few months.

2. Tell your contacts, but bcc: please

Then you need to tell everyone about the change. Using your new address, send an email to everyone in your address book?friends, relatives, and business associates. Address the message to yourself (again, with the new address), and BCC everyone else.
