 Top Gun, a new aerial combat shooter based on the hit Movie was recently released by Paramount Digital Entertainment (developer Freeverse). This is just my first impressions of the game, and you can get it now for a $1.99, and I think it's worth the 2 bucks. I'll circle round to do a full review later, but it's pretty cool.

Use free FStream player for internet radio

image

I've been tweaking on Ubuntu lately, trying to get a radio tuner device called a Radio Shark functional in Linux on my laptop. I finally have a pretty good solution, but wanted to be able to stream the output on my home network. I thought what better portable player than my wifi-equipped Touch. One problem, I needed a player to see the SHOUTcast stream that could also play OGG. The free FStream player nicely saved the day.

Bring Authentic WWII Action to your iPhone or Touch with Brothers In Arms!

image

 This game has been out for awhile, but I have been so engrossed playing it, I’m just getting round to posting on it. I often find games that have 1-2 star ratings that are decent, and games with 5 star ratings that disappoint, so I think ratings are a bit, ahem, overrated. Reducing an in-depth review to a single score is self-defeating in my opinion, because many people will consider only the rating (I do the same thing).



Hellfire Review

Hellfire by Astraware and Pazzazz games will take you back to the cold war era, when the U.S.A. and U.S.S.R. were locked into an escalation of military might. The top helicopter gunships of the day were the Mi-24 Hind (Soviet) and AH-64 Apache (American), and just about anyone from that era is familiar with the ferocious firepower of these helicopters. The Hind has a longer history and more varied operational capability than the AH-64, so it's not exactly a fair comparison.
