JAZZ: Trump's Journey for iPhone and iPad – A Stylish Romp through the Golden Age of Jazz

By Bulent Yusuf on at

We've always believed in the potential of video games. As a medium, there's no limit to the kinds of stories it can tell or the emotions it can explore. That said, it's still a surprise to play something like JAZZ: Trump's Journey. On the one hand it's just a platform adventure. On the other, it's a loose retelling of the early life of Louis Armstrong, the great jazz musician, Hollywood star, and sometime civil rights activist. And it's utterly amazing.

HMV Saved By Music and Film Industry

By Sam Gibbs on at

It looks like HMV might survive as the only UK high street media retailer left standing. It’s struck a deal with suppliers including Universal Music, to effectively share the burden by getting the suppliers to shoulder the risk for stock; a bit like a jeweller does.

Looks like we’re in for a stormy solar Saturday, as the sun has erupted in our direction again. It shot out an M3.2-class solar flare towards our humble little planet (as you can see above). The resulting stream of charged particles should crash into Earth’s magnetic field on Saturday, and could cause the odd blackout, pretty lights, and conspiracy theorists to go nuts, again.

This Chain Surfing Dog Balances Better Than I Do

By Sam Gibbs on at

Dogs, they’re not quite the internet sensation that Cats are, and I think that’s a tad unfair. They can do awesome things too, just like this incredible balancing act. Hell, I’ve tried that many a time over the years and always landed flat on my face.

Resident Evil 6 Launching on November 20th

By Gary Cutlack on at

Capcom has released the first official trailer for Resident Evil 6, attaching a November 20th release date to its latest zombie-packed sequel. It'll arrive first on Xbox 360 and PS3, before appearing later on PC. The plot's something about zombies, as you might be expecting, only triggered by "bio-terrorism" attacks on the US and Hong Kong this time. [YouTube]
