Transformers Fall of Cybertron Revealed

This is something that I've been waiting for. Transformers: Fall of Cybertron has been finally revealed. Made by the same studio High Moon Studio, it is the sequel to the last year game, Transformers: War for Cybertron. I really enjoyed the first game and have been anticipating its sequel.  The reveal is by Game Informer magazine which will feature 12 pages of exclusive details on High Moon's new project, including extensive story and gameplay explanations, concept art, and dozens of screenshots in the magazine's November issue.

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron continues the story of the Autobots and the Decepticons and their bitter civil war, but changes and improves upon so many of the fundamental ideas that the developer considers the game a natural successor rather than a true sequel.

Crysis Launches on Xbox 360 & PS3

Crytek and EA have officially launched the original PC hit Crysis for both Xbox 360 and PS3. It is now available via the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network for about $23.12 or 1600 Microsoft Points.
"We're really excited to bring the legendary Crysis to gamers who weren't able to experience it the first time around," said Cevat Yerli, Chief Executive Officer of Crytek. "The CryENGINE 3 has allowed us to remaster the single-player campaign and make significant advancements to the gameplay. We've added a new lighting system, some advanced rendering techniques and most importantly, we've optimized the Nanosuit controls to utilize its full potential on a gamepad. We really hope that gamers will enjoy playing the game as much as we've enjoyed developing it."

In 2007, Crysis made a huge impact on the gaming industry with its next-generation technology, jaw-dropping visuals and ground-breaking gameplay. The multi-awards winning game has set a new benchmark for PC games for years. Back then, people who are going to buy a new PC would ask, "Can it run Crysis?" as the hardware requirements for the game is very steep. Today, it is no longer a luxury as it is now available in consoles (though it would never surpass the quality of the PC version).

Steve Jobs: Ex-Apple CEO Dies

This is quite surprising to some. But this is something that others have expected. Ex-Apple CEO, Steve Jobs has died. The mastermind behind Apple's iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes was 56 when he died. Neither Jobs' family nor Apple revealed where Jobs died or from what cause, though in recent years he had fought a form of pancreatic cancer and had a liver transplant.

The homepage of Apple's website switched to a full-page image of Jobs with the text, "Steve Jobs 1955-2011." Clicking on the image revealed additional text, credited in a separate memo to Apple employees to current Apple CEO Tim Cook.
"Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being," the text read. "Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple."

I have never been a fan of Apple as I never bought any of Apple products. However, Steve Jobs inventions made healthy competitions in the technology industry which led to product innovations that we bought today. Thank you, Steve Jobs.

Apple iPhone 4S Unveiled

The next iteration of Apple smartphone is finally unveiled! Dubbed the iPhone 4S, it is an incremental upgrade to iPhone 4 rather than complete overhaul of its predecessor. Still retaining the same design and dimension, the notable difference is you will now get more processing power as it sports a dual-core CPU, improved graphics processor, a better camera and speedier data network.

The Apple iPhone 4S is equipped with the A5 chipset, the same SoC (System-on-Chip) that was found in iPad 2. The SoC has a dual-core Cortex-A9 CPU and PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, which is a pretty powerful combo. The smartphone also improves on the network data speeds of its predecessor. The HSDPA speed now is 14.4 Mbps compared to iPhone 4's 7.2Mbps. The iPhone 4S also now supports both GSM and CDMA networks which make it a true world phone. In the camera department side, it now features a 8MP snapper rather than the 5MP of iPhone 4. Besides, video recording has been upgraded from 720p to 1080p (full HD).

The iPhone 4S will come in two color options - black and white. There are three storage options - 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. In the US, the phone will start to be on sale on October 14. The first wave of the new iPhone will be coming to Canada, Australia, UK, France, Germany, and Japan, while 63 other countries will join before the end of the year.
