I am a lot more excited for the release of the new Forza title than I thought I’d be. Ive recently been seeing more and more gameplay videos online and each one of them grabbed my attention more than the one before. I was a big fan of the Test Drive games, unlike quite a few people, because of it attention to detail with the vehicles, but with complete free-roam and huge open landscapes to explore with all different types of cars. I am also a fan of the utter amazing detail in the vehicles of Forza Motorsport 5, so you can imagine how I feel about Forza Horizon 2. Admittedly, I haven’t played the first title of Forza Horizon, but for good reason. I was a huge fan of Forza Motorsport from the second title, and I didn’t want to ruin my experience of the game by playing a spin-off that made it into a gimmick. Luckily the first game got a lot of good attention, but I always felt Forza could do better with the idea of a free-roam. This game seems to be ticking all of the right boxes for myself, hence I am very happy to see it coming to the next-gen consoles.
If anyone has followed along with the Resident Evil or ‘Biohazard’ franchise, then you will know that early releases of the game were a new type of scary, and that it used its scariness to entertain the audiences. Unfortunately, it has lately become a dying horror, as the late releases haven’t been living up to the Resident Evil reputation. The article linked below is on WIRED.com and has more info.
I think it’s safe to say I’m excited about the Apple Watch, the unveiling was definitely something to remember. The introduction video for the new smart watch was portrayed very well by Jony Ive. I just can’t wait for the release!
Wired has a lot more information on the device and here is the link to their page on it.
This is the intro vid for the watch.
Apple has kept shush about why apps are declined when trying to publish them to the App Store, so the fact they have release this info means developers can see why their apps are getting declined. I like how strict Apple are about the apps in the Store, the fact that they are means that a lower age group can enjoy the experience on their Apple devices without having to have too many restrictions by their parents/guardians. Another thing is that it means that people who are easily offended by inappropriate images, language, or actions, can browse the app store without fear that they may download something they are going to regret. The link below sheds more in-depth light on the subject.
This is just a short review on Apple’s new version of Mac OS X, 10.10. As some of you may or may not know, only one million people were able to have access to the Yosemite Beta. Luckily for myself, I was one of those one million. I have been testing various parts of the new-to-be-released version 10.10, and have only come across a few minor problems that I can fault the software for. To begin with, I will talk a little bit about the cons I have come across while using/testing the software, as anybody can expect, Yosemite is overall a little ‘glitchy’, and sometimes applications just crash. Although this can be frustrating, it is not very often at all, and I’m almost certain those kinks will be worked out before the release, hence the early release beta.
Apple has announced its much-rumoured 9 September event, at which it is expected the company will reveal a range of new products. Honestly for me, I can’t wait to feast my eyes on the new smart watch from Apple, as I am admittedly a proud supporter of the way the company goes about their products.
I believe if/when they release their smart watch, it will probably be my favourite smart watch to date, hence I haven’t took much interest in the current smart watches on the market. If I could give a personal opinion on which I would choose from other manufacturers, then I would have to say my subjective favourite at the moment is the ‘Moto 360‘, purely because of it’s design and intuitiveness. Moreover, in the upcoming event, Apple are almost certainly going to unveil the new iPhone 6 with 4.7 Inch display, but a strong rumour is lingering that the new ‘iWatch’ or ‘iTime’ may be unveiled along-side! Another fact about the event, is that it is going to be int he same, San Fransisco Venue, Apple used to launch the first ever Mac in 1984.

I have loved the Halo franchise for as long as I can remember, and to see this remastering of all the games that I grew up with, it’s safe to say, I’m hopeful. PAX 2014 showed just how amazing it may well be when it is released to the actual public. Here’s one of a few videos on what was shown. Enjoy!
