Madfinger Games has released some cracking in-game footage of its forthcoming iOS game Samurai II: Vengeance, the sequel to Samurai: Way of the Warrior. Samurai: Way of the Warrior was featured by Apple as one of 2009s best games, and now Madfinger Games is aiming to top that with the release of the sequel on October 21st. The stylized manga graphics and gory gameplay of the original were popular with both critics and fans alike, and judging by the in-game footage shown here, the sequel brings fans very much more of the same. Madfinger spent over a year working on the development of Samurai II, and you can see the result of that work in the videos below, with non-stop action running at 60 frames per second, and vibrantly optimised for the Retina display and iPad screen.
Madfinger says that it has also taken on board the views of fans when it came to improving gameplay in Samurai II, introducing a new virtual d-pad, dynamic camera, environmental puzzles, traps and lots of deadly new enemies. The all-new story sees Daisuke undertaking a quest for vengeance against his nemesis, Orochi, across war-torn countryside, visiting many different locations including a seaside village, a flying fortress and the legendary Isle of the Dead. The footage is looking fantastic, cant wait for the finished game.

iCarbons.com was nice enough to send some extra iCarbons for my iPod Touch 4G. I have been having problems keeping the chrome back scratch-less so I decided to go with iCarbons since I don't like fat cases on a thin device. I believe that if a device was built to be small and tiny like the iPod Touch 4th Generation, it should stay that way. A bulky case just won't cut it. With these iCarbons I can continue have the great feel while still protecting my iPod.
These are great products and stick on there for a good amount of time. You shouldn't have too much trouble putting them on. You can purchase these over at iCarbons.com

Whats that old saying about making lemonade after life hands you a big fat lemon? Well according to a story on TechCrunch, thats exactly what a group called Atomic Tom did when their instruments were stolen. Sans instruments, they decided to hold a concert on the New York subway, on the B train over the Manhattan Bridge and into Brooklyn, to be precise, using just their iPhones. Naturally, the band filmed the result, and put it up on their YouTube channel. And although this does sound like something Apple might organise as a cool publicity stunt, TechCrunch reckons its actually genuine and Apple didnt know anything about it (although TC isnt buying the stolen instruments part of the story!) When TechCrunch first broke the story, they said that the video only had approximately 300 views. As of today, it has over 132,000! Check it out, it really is pretty amazing stuff!
