Important News Regarding Fable II

May 13, 2009

The last Fable II DLC, “Knothole Island”, had mixed reviews. A common complaint was that the expansion should not have been priced at 800 Microsoft points. Lionhead has now priced the new DLC, “See the Future”, at only 560 Microsoft points. It’s a shame you’ll still have to buy 1000 points to get it.

“See the Future” is available TODAY. For more info, visit its official site.

Also, Microsoft is holding a contest for a Fable Collector’s Edition Xbox 360 console signed by Peter Molyneax himself.

Lubic4sho and I have been slightly off the radar with Project Infinitum lately. There really isn’t one specific why reason we haven’t been doing so.

Anyways, I’d like to know what you guys want us to do. Whatever interests you, may it be Apple, Xbox, or Coffee, just let us know. 

Your comments really mean a lot to us, and can affect what we achieve in the long run. Please comment!

Software Review: Tweetie for Mac

April 25, 2009

After much anticipation, Tweetie for Mac is here. If you’re like me, the first thing you did on April 20th was download Tweetie. Influenced by Tweetie for the iPhone, which we gave a 5 star review to a few months back, the Mac version packs in a lot of great features as a desktop client. Now let’s jump in to the review!

As his name suggests, Danny MacAskill has some serious skill. The music adds a nice touch to the video, as well. But please, before you try any of the insane stunts he does, notice he wears a helmet. Safety first, kids.

Track your book collection online

Goodreads is by no means a new website, but it deserve a shout out. If you are interested at least a tiny bit in reading books, Goodreads is the perfect place organize everything.

In Goodreads, you have the ability to set up bookshelves according to books you’ve read, books you’re currently reading, and books you would like to read in the future. The site also allows you to create custom bookshelves. A typical custom bookshelf is the self-explanatory “wishlist”, but you really have the freedom to make whatever shelf you want.

There are also many accessory features such as groups and trivia. A feature that I find useful is the ability to update your progress in a book that you’re reading. It can sometimes function as a virtual bookmark.

Goodreads is essentially a social network for people who like books. After having used the site for months, I can firmly recommend it to anyone. Go check it out.

Fan of Radiohead?

If so, I’d first like to tell you that I think you have good taste in music. Secondly, there’s a website offering special editions of the band’s first three albums. They include the original album and a bonus disc, and some other special edition goodies. If you’d like to check them out, the site is called Radiohead Vault. The Vault links you to Amazon to make purchases. I myself am going to have to buy all of these sooner or later. 

 

App Preview: SoundFXs

April 13, 2009

Sound Effects for Your Life! This is the slogan for the unreleased app SoundFXs. We got a first hand look and now bring you a sneak peek at what to expect in this upcoming app. The app should hit the app store about a week from the date on this article, now lets jump in!

Let me give you the low down about this app real quick; when you first get the app it comes preloaded with over 50 sounds. The sounds are placed in four categories, which is represented by the tabs at the bottom of the app, the categories are:

  • General
  • Animals
  • Nature
  • People

This is what could make the app possibly be considered “Four apps in One.” Instead of going out and buying a app that pertains to the categories listed above, all you have to do is purchase this one and you’re pretty much set. General sounds include alarm, card shuffling, explosion, etc. Pretty much random sounds that are pretty cool to mix together, which brings me to mention this: unlike other sound apps, in SoundFXs you can play multiple sounds at once to create something creative and fun. Animals include a dog barking, a elephant, goat, etc. The funniest thing to do with this one is when someone is walking past your room, hit all the animal sounds at once and watch that person’s reaction! Nature includes sounds like wind, thunder, ocean, etc. People includes sounds like applause, farting, knocking, etc. The perfect thing to do with the “People” category is to tap all the sounds at once, the outcome is amazing!

The app packs a lot of fun and laughter(literally, laughter is one of the sounds). This app is great if you’re on a phone call and you want to play some sounds to freak out the person you are talking to, just hit the home button, open up the app, and just go crazy! Unlike other apps where you have to buy certain ones to get certain sounds, this conveniently packs together all the sounds one could need. You won’t be stuck with all these sounds forever, more sounds will be implemented come future free updates!

The app does have it’s bugs and the occasional  crash here and there, but updates will come and fix that. This app is great to play around with and gets some laughs from friends, but don’t expect to be using it 24/7, it’s simple and fun.

For 0.99 cents, this is a GREAT deal for an app that is basically “four apps in one!!”

3.5/5
