I’m not really a play games on my iPhone kind of guy, but Tiny Wings has me hooked. It’s definitely an addictive game. The first time I saw it, I thought, oh, this will be a great game for my 4 and 6 year old kids to play. It looks so easy, but in reality, it’s very difficult to master. The milestones you have to reach to level-up are very unusual and make playing the same levels over and over again fun. One in particular requires you to play the game upside down. Very creative on the developer’s part.
I’ve heard Tiny Wings referred to as the Angry Birds Killer. That’s obviously going way too far. It’s a great game, but head to head, it’s no Angry Birds and it doesn’t have the legs to keep going with new variants for seasons, holidays, etc.
Download it and try it out. I promise you, you won’t be able to put it down.
I have to confess that I haven’t been this obsessed with a new album in a long time. I have to post here, because I can’t confess to friends, or show the plays in my Last.FM stream or AIM status. So here it is: I LOVE Pink Friday. Nicki Minaj’s filthy dirty, grimey-ass cheeseball album. It is just so damn good. It’s virtually impossible not to like it.
Here is the Pink Friday Tracklist:
01 I’m The Best
02 Roman’s Revenge (Feat. Eminem)
03 Did It On’em
04 Right Thru Me
05 Fly (Feat. Rihanna)
06 Save Me
07 Moment 4 Life (Feat. Drake)
08 Check It Out (Feat. Will.I.Am)
09 Blazin (Feat. Kanye West)
10 Here I Am
11 Dear Old Nicki
12 Your Love
13 Last Chance (Feat. Natasha Bedingfield)
14 Massive Attack (Feat. Sean Garrett)
15 Hello Good Morning (Remix)
Not only is the production outstanding but there are also plenty of 80s samples and loops in the tracks.
Check It Out samples: Buggles – Video Killed The Radio Star
Blazin’ samples: Simple Minds – Don’t You (Forget About Me)
Your Love samples: Annie Lennox – No More I Love Yous
Dear Borders, I realize that you are kicking the bucket and that you are closing down stores all across the US, but sending me 20 emails a day about your sales and new releases and other non-sense is not going to make me shop there any more than I already do. Please chill on Spamming my inbox. I cannot take 1 in 5 emails a day being from you. Yes, I’m exagerrating somewhat, but on March 7, I did actually receive three different HTML emails. Ugh. Make it stop…
