WWE 2K18 features Seth Rollins as its generational-shifting cover star

This is a generational shift for the franchise, as Seth Rollins represents a newer generation of WWE stars. Recent cover stars have included the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, John Cena, The Rock, and Brock Lesnar. These are all wrestlers that have a long history with the biggest “sports entertainment” company in the world, and they all started their careers with the WWE in the ’90s or early 2000s.

But Seth Rollins made his WWE debut in 2010. Since then, he has become a two-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

“As the WWE 2K18 cover Superstar and franchise ambassador, it is my incredible honor and mission to ensure this game will truly be like no one — a calling card perfect for everything I stand for — as it sets forth on its own unique path,” said Seth Rollins. “Following in the footsteps of other WWE 2K cover Superstars — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Brock Lesnar — I now carry the torch and proudly represent a new generation of WWE Superstars. I am the future, and the future can’t be stopped.”

2K has not announced a PC version of WWE 2K18 yet, but the latest entries have made that pilgrimage typically a few months after the console releases.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
