Console makers typically create games that are exclusive to their platforms. This is done so that it will entice gamers to choose their platform when trying to decide between consoles. For example, Sony has God of War, Nintendo has The Legend of Zelda, and Microsoft has its Forza racing franchise.
The Forza series has typically been only available on Microsoft’s Xbox platform, but it seems that the company has decided to open it up to more platforms by launching a new title in the Forza series. Dubbed “Forza Street”, this is a free-to-play title that has been announced for iOS and Android devices along with Windows 10.
Many are no doubt already missing Google’s Inbox by Gmail platform, the email platform from Google that was smart enough to label, organize, and sort your emails without any input from your end. It also came with other nifty features like the ability to snooze emails so that you could get to them at a later date without forgetting about it.
However, there is some good news because the developers behind the Spark email app have announced that the app is now launching on Android. Spark was previously only available on iOS devices, but it looks like it is now finding its way to Android handsets where some of the features of the app should offer up an Inbox-like experience for Android users.
Kingdom Hearts fans have had a very long wait for the latest title in the franchise and as they now rejoice, Sony is celebrating that achievement with a limited edition Series A Walkman. Those of you who have been around long enough know that the Walkman isn’t a new product. It’s actually one of Sony’s most iconic cassette players and was first released in 1979. This particular one doesn’t require cassettes, though, it can hold plenty of songs in its 16GB of internal storage.
The limited edition NW-A55 Series A Sony Walkman is a digital model with a unique Kingdom Hearts 3 design. The game’s main protagonist Sora is featured front and center in this design. Sony isn’t just coming out with a limited edition Walkman to celebrate the launch of Kingdom Hearts 3.
On January 15, former Momoiro Clover Z member Ariyasu Momoka updated her Twitter account announcing that she has launched an independent agency and will be resuming her activities.
It's almost been a year since Ariyasu graduated from Momoclo. In a handwritten message, she declared, "I, Ariyasu Momoka, will be starting my activities to convey my expressions through music and photography."
It was last year that Nikon announced the launch of their new Nikon Z full-frame mirrorless cameras, the company’s “serious” attempt at trying their hand at mirrorless cameras. However as is the case with new mounts and cameras, the availability of lenses are limited, but Nikon is hoping to make up for it.
The company has announced their latest Z-mount lens in the form of the 14-30mm f/4 S zoom lens. GIven that the widest is at 14mm, this could easily double up as a wide-angle lens, plus the f/4 aperture does make it pretty ideal for landscape photography. Its max zoom of 30mm also could potentially make it a pretty good distance for street photography, although at f/4 some might find it a bit slow, plus the bokeh at f/4 isn’t particularly ideal for portraits.
Wakatsuki Yumi, who just graduated from Nogizaka46 this month, has launched an Instagram account (@yumi_wakatsuki_official).
In her post, she uploaded a photo of herself eating cake with her eyes closed, and wrote in hashtags, "Thanks for waiting. What, you weren't waiting? Wakatsuki Yumi graduates and looks to the future." She then revealed in her second post that she started Instagram because she wants to notify her fans of her work.
Time really does fly. It has been five years since the PlayStation 4 was released. It’s one of the most successful consoles that Sony has ever made. It has sold more than 86.1 million hardware units in these past five years. The company has launched a new Black Ops 4 bundle to celebrate the fifth anniversary of its gaming juggernaut.
The Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 PS4 bundle has been launched by Sony to celebrate this occasion. Don’t expect any cosmetic changes for the console in this bundle. It looks like any other PlayStation 4 console would. It comes in the most common PlayStation 4 color that’s a favorite of the PlayStation faithful as well.
In some countries, certain websites are blocked for various reasons. However an easy way to bypass these restrictions would be to change your DNS, and Google’s DNS is one of the free options out there. Now earlier this year Cloudflare launched their own resolver that anyone can use for free, and now it looks like that DNS resolver has since been turned into an app.
Dubbed 18.104.22.168, the app doesn’t do anything different if you were to change your DNS manually. However given that changing your DNS isn’t exactly something that everyone knows how to do, the app simplifies the entire process by basically turning it into a toggle where you can choose to turn it on or off.
