The need now list: Star Wars in HD, 'True Detective' season 2 and more
Our list this week features Star Wars films, robots, and a preview of the second season of “True Detective.” What’s not to love?
The Robot Factory, Universal game
Your kids should enjoy The Robot Factory ($2.99), the first app in a new series from award-winning studio Tinybop: Digital Toys. The app features “exoskeletons, zephyr mechanisms, hydrostatic tentacles, ungulate feet, machinos locomotors, solartronics, archytas wings, G-Force mixers, monster feet, megascopes, hooks, pincers, magnets, and more!”
“True Detective,” season two
It won’t have Academy Award-winner Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson on board. Nonetheless, the second season of HBO’s “True Detective” looks like another winner.
Featuring Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell, and Rachel McAdams, the new season kicks off on June 21.
