Pokemon Go Is Available Now On Android

Pokemon-GO (1)

Previously Pokemon Go was in closed beta, but that my friends is finally over. Pokemon Go has finally been released on the Google Play Store for Android users, and has been released on the App store in Australia and New Zealand (at least for right now) on iOS, no word yet on when they are releasing in other territories yet.

Pokemon Go is an AR (Augmented Reality) game that allows players to see and trap Pokemon by using the app and camera when they are out and walking around so that they can battle them later. If this sounds like something up your alley, then take a look at the video below and go download the app!

Apple Announces New iPhone 5s and 5c

iphone5s5c

This morning Apple announced the next batch of new iPhones, the new iPhone 5s and 5c. The 5c is a new version of the iPhone 5 that has better battery life, a new plastic outer body and comes in a range of different colours. Nothing too exciting here but the iPhone 5c makes for an excellent entry level smart phone with pricing on 2 year contracts starting at $99.

The real exciting news from the event though was the announcement of the iPhone 5c. New features begin with a new A7 processor, M7 motion coprocessor, a fingerprint identity sensor called Touch ID, new iSight 8MP camera with a larger sensor for improved photo quality, new HD face time camera, better battery and pre-loaded with iOS 7. Unfortunately though the 5s shares the same form factor and screen size as its predecessor. I was really looking forward to an iPhone 6 with a new design and larger screen. That said though if your in the market for a new iPhone the 5s looks to be a pretty impressive device.

Both the iPhone 5c and 5s will be available on September 20th, for existing iPhone 5 and 4s owners iOS 7 will be available September 18th.

Clickl the links these links for more information on the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5C, what did you think about todays announcements?

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Hearthstone Heroes of Warcraft

Blizzard Entertainment’s Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a free-to-play strategy card game for Windows, Macintosh, and iPad. Designed to be deceptively simple and epically engaging for players of all backgrounds, Hearthstone features quick and lively duels that evoke the spirit of a friendly match played beside a crackling tavern fire.

Each player’s card deck centers around a hero representing one of nine iconic Warcraft classes, customized with a set of minions, spells, and/or weapons based on individual strategy and available cards. Players will be able to hone their skills in practice matches against the computer, and when they’re ready for the challenge, they can take on their Battle.net friends and other players in friendly duels. To further develop their decks, players will be able to acquire cards by crafting them and by winning or purchasing new card packs. With hundreds of unique cards to choose from, the potential card combinations and possible strategies are endless!

Game Modes

Play Mode: Duel opponents online to boost your medal ranking and earn packs of cards. Whether you’re a grizzled veteran, curious newcomer, or fall somewhere in between, our matchmaking system will pit you against worthy competition.

The Forge: Put your skills to the test in this mode where deck-building is half the fun. You’ll be presented with a series of card choices from which you must forge your deck, and then you’ll bring that deck into battle against other duelists. In addition to having a chance to win card packs as prizes if you duel well, all participants will keep the cards they selected for their Forge deck.

Practice Mode: Hone your skills and test out new deck ideas against basic or expert AI opponents, and unlock eight playable heroes in the process.

Key Features

Collection Manager: Peruse your ever-expanding card collection and build a variety of custom decks to suit all kinds of strategies. If you’re new to deck-building, you can also get guided help here on how to fill out your deck for competitive play.

Crafting: Disenchant those extra cards in your collection to receive arcane dust, the building block used to construct Hearthstone cards. You can then use this dust to craft the cards needed to complete one or more of your decks or your overall collection.

Friendly Duels: Want to challenge your buddy to a quick match (or just show off your shiny new cards)? Hearthstone is connected to Battle.net, so you’ll be able to fire up a game with a friend right from your friends list.
