Infinity Blade to hit App Store on Dec 9th

Epic Games has announced that the long awaited iOS game Infinity Blade will be in the App Store on December 9th. The game will be available for the iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, as well as third- and fourth-generation iPod Touch devices at a cost of $5.99.

Infinity Blade will be the first full game to utilize Epic’s Unreal Engine 3. Epic Citadel, already available in the App Store, is a short demonstration level showing  the power of the Unreal Engine on iOS devices. If you haven't seen it, it is free and definitely worth a look. [iTunes Link]

Infinity Blade is an RPG (Role Playing Game). You are a Knight in a giant 3D Castle environment, in search of a God-King, battling various enemies to gain new weapons and powers in your quest.

So mark your calendar, this is one great looking game, my iPad is twitching with anticipation, who’s getting this one when it hits?

"Project" Magazine for iPad launching tomorrow [video]

Richard Branson's new digital magazine for the iPad, dubbed Project launches tomorrow:

Project is the very first international magazine created specifically for the iPad. It’s a magazine about design, entertainment, technology and entrepreneurs, and is edited by Anthony Noguera, former editor-in-chief of FHM.

The magazine will be purely digital, offering up content in a "living magazine" format that will be updated throughout the month, and plays to the iPad's strengths in delivering an intuitive and asthetically pleasing UI for a completely immersive user-experience unlike any other magazine available. The idea is for users to treat Project as a daily reading experience, instead of a 'read once then throw away' model carried by current magazine offerings.

The video below only shows the magazine's front cover, and we're not yet sure if this animated experience will extend to the actual pages and articles themselves. The app should be available in the App Store tomorrow.

With News Corp. prepping to launch a rumored iPad-only newspaper in the coming months, it will be interesting to see how quickly these new services gain initial adoption.

Any readers looking forward to this new magazine experience? Sound off in the comments below!

Rage HD for iPad- app review


YouTube Link

When I saw John Carmack show off Rage on the iPhone a few months back, I was rather excited. The promise of real console-like graphics were in our grasp. Then, the game finally came out and I was initially blown away, but then...

Rage HD on iPad is set in a post-apocalyptic future. Typical of these types of games where you play a contestant out to earn money by defeating mutants. The game is set in a first-person shooter (FPS) perspective, but it is on rails. This means the game "moves" for you and you are only allowed to maneuver the cursor on screen at any given time. This is okay, as the games visuals are amazing and this style of game worked really well for Doom Resurrection on iPhone.
