As wonderful as the Mac OS X operating system can be, sometimes installing Windows on an Apple computer or laptop is essential – especially if you are a gamer or simply want to experience the best of both worlds.
Taking a screenshot on a Mac keyboard though can become tricky if you are looking for the ‘Print Screen’ key, as usually it doesn’t exist on the Apple keyboard layout.
You may know of the Sam & Max characters from the more recent Telltale reincarnation, however for those who were enjoying point and click adventure games back in the early 90’s will remember the original video game featuring a six-foot upright dog wearing a very official looking suit and a bizarre looking behaviorally challenged rabbit.
So here it is at last, the Halo Reach Multiplayer Beta for the Xbox 360. I have been given a download code today so I can have a slightly earlier look at what is on offer from the masters of the Halo franchise and that is of course Bungie.
First of all you will need a copy of Halo O.D.S.T. to access this beta on May 3rd, so hopefully you haven’t traded yours in like a lot of people once you completed the single player campaign. The Halo: Reach Multiplayer Beta download is around 1.15GB, so grabbing a drink while you wait wouldn’t be a bad idea.
My first experience of Bejeweled 2 was on Xbox Live Arcade using of course the Xbox 360 console. With high definition graphics and fancier animations than the previous title that featured on the original Xbox, it was always on to a winner.
Bejeweled 2 is simply a puzzle game that if you are not careful will sap into your hours as any addictive game should. For anyone who has played the console version, the familiar graphics, music, sound effects and warping level completions remain and although of course not HD, look fantastically clear and colorful. More importantly though the transition to a portable device like the Apple iPhone has not lost its appeal, working perfectly on a touch screen and also featuring a landscape view. I prefer the portrait view as I find the iPhone easier to grip this way, however it is nice to have the choice.
