Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto: Online
Pretty much a year ago and a bit I was loading up Grand Theft Auto V onto my PS3 because that’s what you do when the latest and greatest game series is released… on the PS3 and Xbox 360 only. So basically I was downgrading controllability from my previous super-fun experience on PC with GTAIV and going to the archaic PS3 with it’s 10 year old hardware and… well it has a Blu-Ray player so that’s pretty good.
Happy New Year everyone! We at Kokstars are ringing in 2015 by sharing the games we are looking forward to with you.
Resident Evil: Revelations II
I never used to play horror games but I enjoy Resident Evil because we can play it co-op. Chronologically this game takes place between Resident Evil 5 and 6. I still won’t watch zombie movies (unless it’s like Zombieland) but now I like playing zombie games because at least you can kill them.
Coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015
Ok so now I’m up with my favourite five apps.
Where my family at?
1. Friend Locator by Life360 (or Family Locator)
It sounds a bit creepy, but with this app, you can keep track of others. The good thing is, however, that the other people need to first register, otherwise they cannot be tracked. They can then check in whenever they want and there are lots of settings that you can alter to make sure that your location is not constantly tracked. You can create ‘circles’ or groups of people who can all see each other and you can send messages to the other members as well. Another weird thing is that you can find any crimes/sexual criminals in the area – they show up as small dots. Interesting stuff and questionable, but still a useful app! You may want to turn off the email notifications though, as these can get a bit annoying.
Get it from the Play Store || Get it from the App Store
It’s Fridaaaaaaay! And what better way to celebrate than get all personal with the apps you love. I admit I don’t really pay much attention to the productivity stuff and mainly focus on a very select bunch of games and productivity killing apps to stave off boredom when you’ve nothing to do and a whole lot of time away from your Playstation/PC/desk/home etc. there are some interesting ones though so bear with me:
(If you are an iPhone user, some may still apply though I am an Android user so I don’t have limitations)
1. Album Art Grabber
I listen to a lot of music and having no album art is not fun, Album Art Grabber can go through your library and grab all the missing art or if you feel like it you can put your own images in. Continue reading
We’ve got a new series for you where we will tell you about our five favourite things. First up, it’s our five favourite apps, whether it’s for Android, iOS or Mac (or more than one). Enjoy!
Wunderlist is a very useful app that allows you to create and share lists, for example, shopping- or todo-lists. It works on Android, iOS and Mac. The best feature is, that everyone you share the list with can add items to it as well as “cross off” entries. Continue reading
Oh yes… it is indeed
For some time now Motorola has been tantalising tastebuds for smartwatch thoughts with their triumphant touting of the typical square form factor. Square smart watches are so passe, none of them appealed to me, I mean I was doing the square touch screen thingo on the wrist thing in 2010. I was the guy with the iPod Nano secured with a black metal bracelet that was both protector and watch band for the iPod, it was on my wrist and everything. I could tell I looked really cool with this touchscreen device on my wrist and everyone asked what it was. I was a man before my time.
Who doesn’t love a new gadget? Recently a friend of mine got me a good deal on a new electric toothbrush. Those things have become so advanced over the years!
Bye bye Oral B Vitality
I have been absent recently from the blog and for that I apologise up front. Honestly I love writing when something happens and recently not a lot has been going on… except that isn’t true because plenty has happened and I have just not been actively thinking on it. I purchased my first baby present for the new addition (due December) to my buddy’s new family. The gift in this case is in delivery mode from Apple and is a Withings Baby Monitor.
It plays lullabies and is a night light, room temperature and humidity sensor and a camera streaming to your iPhone or Android device.
I am a fan of immersion in gaming and movies and whatever else is an experience you can have without actually being in danger or within grasp of the elements etc. I wrote an article some while back about ASMR and how binaural ASMR recorded with 3D stereoscopic mics make for a surreal yet relaxing experience. Now to visuals, the battle for your loungeroom wall is an epic one and with the latest from the big brands vying to blow you away with their 4K resolutions on massive screens. Even though I am a fan of many inches… of screen real estate you still can’t sit that close to the screen and when you sit where you usually sit the whole affair is not much larger in perspective than my Macbook is sitting on my lap. This whole screen size thing is going to get silly, soon enough they’ll paint your wall with some liquid screen stuff hooked into a media controller and you will watch the wall. That or you will be able to purchase rolled up LED/LCD wallpaper that when applied to any surface or framed will be the screen. Basically really big TVs with virtually limitless possibilities with screen size and application.
