On November 2nd, Disney releases Wreck-it Ralph, a film with a star studded-voice cast and a unique setting taking place across multiple video game worlds. It's also destined to make you feel old. Gaming's hit a bit of a watershed moment, we can now look back on its history of multiple decades and view it in the same kind of nostalgia glasses that were once reserved to TVLand reruns of I Love Lucy and Leave it to Beaver.
Remember Carmageddon, the late-90s, ultraviolent, mow-down-pedestrians driving game? It came out today for iPad and iPhone, thanks to Kickstarter, and it's free for the first day. Which, like I said, is today. So you should go download it. Today.
After a short hiatus, Free App Friday has returned to fulfill wishes. Each week we've promised to bring you something you never knew you needed, but could no longer live without. We bring you an app that could only be unlocked to its true potential with the power of iOS 6. This is Walgreens.
I've always been an iCal power user, though I have rued the amount of effort it takes to try to add links to properly curated calendars for things like sports events of television shows. I'd love to be able to just subscribe to a feed that tells me when the Giants are playing a home game, or when New Girl premieres on Fox, without having to add every event manually.
Rumors! Rumors! Nothing but rumors half the time! Well, we've got a few of those and plenty of other news. Just wait until next week, though, as September officiallykicks off "Overheated Speculation Month" for Apple watchers. Meanwhile, here's a few overheated news stories from this week that are raising up some dog day like weather around these parts.
Summer is quickly coming to an end, but that doesn't mean the music stops there. Apple just launched the iTunes Festival app for iPhone and iPad. The event will feature a month of live music that you can stream via AirPlay and your Apple TV, or to watch later and rock out to with headphones.
The 30 nights of live music begins tomorrow at London's Roundhouse venue and will feature acts like P!NK, Muse, Hot Chip, Deadmau5, David Guetta, Usher, Jack White, Norah Joan, Alicia Keys, Ellie Goulding, The Killers, and everyone's new favorite boy band, One Direction. You can check up the entire line up at the official site.
An editor's pick on this week's App Store, and a permanent staple on my iPad's home screen, the Cartoon Network iPad app is sure to delight anyone with a kid's sense of humor. Yes, even though I have been known to dabble in British comedy, there is nothing more amusing than anthropomorphized characters making their way through shenanigans in a 12 minutes.
For me, high school consisted of using my MacBook Pro in class to play one game, and one game only: Pocket Tanks! I don't remember a single day in the second half of my high school career that I didn't play this. So, imagine my delight, when it showed up in the iTunes App Store.
