While the concept of being able to watch the Entertainment and Sports Network on your mobile device might not necessarily be new, one could only watch an "ESPN-lite" of sorts with "ESPN Mobile TV." However, sports junkies can now watch the gang from Bristol on the iPhone with the new WatchESPN app. But as with most wonderful things, there is a catch. You have to be a Time Warner Cable, Bright House, or Verizon FiOS customer.
The Gangstar series was one of the App Store's earliest gaming hits. It was essentially the progenitor of Gameloft's highly successful me-too let's-copy-this-popular-game approach to iPhone design. Regardless of where its inspiration came from, it's still a very high quality 3D action series. Now we have word that Gangstar: Miami Vindication is on sale for a puny 99 cent sale.
You can imagine our incredible sadness upon hearing the news that this game would not, in fact, feature Kevin Costner as a playable character. Also, apparently the 90s were too long ago for them to include Whitney Houston as one of the celebrities your burly avatar must protect. No, this game has nothing to do with the film of the same name, but The Bodyguard still looks very entertaining nonetheless.
Retro gaming enthusiasts have a whole lot to be pleased about today. Atari just announced that they are releasing an enormous hub app for dozens of the best retro classics of all time. If your Atari has fallen into disrepair or you simply can't be bothered to lug around that giant piece of wood and plastic anymore you might want to consider dropping a measly $14.99 on this compilation. Or you can selectively go through and buy packs of 4 games for 99 cents.
You've probably never heard of Perfect Cell, but it's a very interesting game that's worth giving some attention. It's a game about an alien organism - which is described as neither bad, nor good...just perfect - that crash lands on Earth and is being held captive deep below the ocean. From there you need to use your creepy alien powers to break out of your prison. Maybe it's not quite as simple a concept as Angry Birds' "pigs-stole-my-eggs" plotline, but it's fun nonetheless.
We’ve discussed LogMeIn Ignition before, and it’s a great application for connecting to your Mac remotely through the service’s paid iPhone and iPad application. While the price is justified if you're often finding yourself remotely connecting to your computer and don't want to deal with a VNC or server client, those of you looking for a free solution may feel left out of the loop. Fear not -- there's a free VNC solution that is just as powerful as LogMeIn, and if you're finding that you only need remote access once in awhile, read on to find out how to set it up.
You may remember PopCap games as the developer and publisher behind such classics as Peggle, Plants vs. Zombies, and Bejeweled. Today, the company has unveiled its new label 4th & Battery, which will reportedly carry a new, edgier tone than PopCap has previously been known for. They also announced the first game that will debut from the label. It's called Unpleasant Horse, and you play as, drumroll please...an unpleasant horse.
Are vampires still all the rage in 2011? They were huge in 2010, but we may not be up-to-date on our teenie-bop-sensations. Chillingo's new hack-n-slash tower defense game may star vampire as villains, but they're quick to add that they're nothing like the ones we've been seeing on the silver screen these past couple of years.
We often like to poke fun at some of the corny fantasy game names that pop up on the app store, but High Flier Death Defyier is essentially the antithesis of that. Not only does it sport a fantastic title, but it's also a very entertaining-looking new concept on iOS. Imagine the popular Glyder series then remove the wimpy hang glider and replace it with a jet pack...and brawn.
LogMeIn Ignition could be considered one of the best remote desktop viewing applications currently available for the Mac and iOS, and it just got better with an update allowing remote file transfers from your computers over Wi-Fi or 3G. This functionality was added to the application a few weeks ago, along with a major user interface overhaul. If you’re new to retrieving files with LogMeIn Ignition, read on to find out about all of the new features this service currently provides.
