retaining the same difficulty, style, and tone as the rest of the franchise, dark soul iii continues from software’s medieval fantasy, action-rpg series.

dark souls iii is the conclusion of the trilogy – though interviews with director hidetaka miazaki (via vg247) have confirmed that this won’t mean the end of the franchise.

back to its roots

dark souls iii’s story revolves around the lord of cinder. this calls back to the first dark souls, once again picking up the theme of fire, darkness, and cycles.

this more explicit referencing of original dark souls lore could be hidetaka miazaki influence. the original game’s director has returned to co-directing this third installment. this will be good news for some fans, who cited his absence as a weakness for dark souls ii.

in keeping with this, dark souls iii maintains the franchise's signature fantasy style of desiccated beauty - a once gorgeous world now collapsing, and shrouded in shadow. this is clear from the outset, with every richly designed environment seeming to be overgrown and crumbling as embers float through the world and a dim, dying sun sets in the distance.

dark souls iii’s land of lothric is a more linear world than previous games. though there are some branches, the critical path through the story feels far more direct. there is a hub area, that is reminiscent of demon’s souls', but returning to it using the travel option at bonfires feels more like going back to the beginning rather than providing an exciting place to explore from.

once more into the darkness

in terms of gameplay, from software seems to have learned from the weapon system that it introduced in its playstation exclusive title, bloodborne. while the combat remains heavy and paced - with patience and defensive play still a virtue – dark souls iii feels faster.

it also introduces a new magic system that ties spells and miracles to a mana bar. this is consumed as you play, but can be topped up with a new ashen estus flask. this works identically to the health regenerating estus flask seen in previous games, but now you must decide the balance of uses you have in each. yes, you can trade health for mana, allowing magic users to play more aggressively.

the mana bar and ashen flask are also used by more melee focused fighters. new combat styles and stances are available for every weapon and consume mana to use. this adds more variety to fights, with substantive differences between weapons increasing tactical options.

for example, a light rapier’s unique stance allows for fast execution of multiple moves. by comparison, a great sword lets you shoulder charge, before launching opponents in to the air with a powerful upward swing.

burning bright

dark souls iii carries on the series lineage brilliantly. evolving the combat mechanics utilizing everything learned across its games, from software has created new dynamics within the familiar system that should force everyone think. combine this with a less obtuse story - that ties together threads that fans have been pondering for years - and you have a game that is perfect for veterans while also managing to be accessible for newcomers.

a free roaming pc game, the joy of creation reborn is not for the faint of heart because it will shock and scare even the toughest and most hardened of players. based on 'five night at freddy’s', the action takes place in a gloomy house at night when it is difficult to see everything that is going on.

immersive game play

reminiscent of the spookiest parts of a horror movie, where the central character explores an area where you know the outcome is not going to be great, the action in the joy of creation reborn is all displayed in the first person. the full screen is devoted to game play with only an overlay in the top left which displays the key stats of the level you happen to be on. the basic principle is to try to survive while being hunted down by an animatronic or other characters, but there are plenty of things to keep you occupied as the game play progresses.

the joy of creation reborn really makes you feel that you are being tracked down in an all-encompassing environment that is likely to put you on edge, if not downright scare you. with only a limited view, anything that you come across as you explore the gaming area seems as though it could be a threat. the idea of each location in the game is that it offers a new and different space to search through. and search through you must, because there are a number of objects to find to complete each game objective, or level. the game also offers a survival mode, where you simply try to hang on in the location for as long as you possibly can. the more you explore, the more there is to find and remember that not all of it is out there to shock you – although some certainly will.

graphics and technical information

the graphics of this game are simply superb. forget the average blocky graphics and animation of a typical download game – this is much more like watching a professionally made horror movie than playing a game. the thrills are enhanced by some incredibly spooky sounds and the customized music fof nathan hanover which fits in with the eerie atmosphere perfectly. due to the high demands of the graphics and sound, a decent computer is essential. you'll need to run windows 7 or higher and have a pc with a quad-core intel processor, or the amd equivalent, running at 2.5 ghz or greater. at least 4 gb of ram is recommended and your graphics card will, needless to say, have to be high quality.

in summary

this game is really not one for children or people that don't enjoy the shock factor of horror and gore. however, for fans who want to act out their fantasies of entering into a movie-like environment, then it is hard to beat. whether you are avoiding a killer robot or searching for some much-needed light, the game is really easy into interface with. download it right now and discover just how chilling a free roaming game can actually be these days.

sketchup pro bucks the trend of expensive 3d modeling software such as 3dsmax and cinema4d and presents a free, easy to use alternative with which you can even post your creations onto google earth for the world to see. the latest version has been integrated with google maps too so that geo-tagging your creations is easier than ever.

this professional version of sketchup is aimed at professionals who need cad software that's high on power and features, and low on learning curves. it features some useful advantages over the basic version including ability to export to cad, add text and graphics to layouts and more advanced features.

there's a refreshing lack of technical jargon in sketchup pro and unfamiliar terms to beginners such as the 'extrude' tool have been renamed to the more obvious 'push/pull' for example. there are plenty of helpful hints and guides throughout too helping you get to grips with 'snapping' when you draw rectangles, circles and other shapes. sketchup pro intelligently predicts where you want endpoints to meet and snaps them shut for you, saving lots of time messing around.

sketchup pro doesn't lack in functionality though despite its ease of use and includes all the usual collection of drawing and filling tools you'd expect, neatly accessible in the toolbar across the top of the screen. instructor hints pop out on the right of the screen when it thinks you need them. other options can be accessed via the menu system, or you can choose to place extra palettes on the workspace to save wading through menus. of particular note is the 'materials' palette, which contains over 100 different preset swatches, such as vegetation, metal and glass. the shadow settings palette is also worth keeping to hand, as it allows you to apply realistic shadows via simple sliders.

the real fun however is when you export your sketchup pro drawings into google earth. you can send images of your 3d designs via email or upload them for free storage at google's 3d web warehouse. alternatively, you can geo-tag them in one-step using google maps which has now been integrated into sketchup pro. you receive a snapshot when you add a geo-location to your model which now includes 3d terrain data plus color aerial imagery.

there are some problems with sketchup pro however. most annoying is when trying to create domed surfaces because of the cumbersome nature of the extrude tool, although pushing and pulling straight lines is considerably easier. however, the ability to export to cad format means that anything you find tricky or difficult in sketchup pro, you can finish off in another application.

sketchup pro provides a refreshingly simple approach to 3d graphic design while providing the power and cad format export features that professionals need.

the uc browser for pc is one of the uc browser variants that were created especially for use on desktop computers. it doesn't require a lot of processing power, and it offers a smoother internet experience for people with a slow internet connection. this free browser for windows is ideally suited for people with low-powered desktop computers and/or people with a slower internet connection.

a web browser with enough built-in tools

the uc browser is not a new one; it has been kicking around on mobile devices for a while. that is why uc browser for pc has more tools and features than most other new browsers for pcs.
the most prominent feature is its ad-blocker, which is modern enough to fend off the newest advert types that other browsers allow to sneak through. it has a tabbed interface like many current web browsers, and it has a download manager that allows you to see what is downloading and how far the download has progressed.

since the browser was originally built for mobile devices, there is also a miniature mode that you may use either for your own convenience, or to replicate the experience you have when viewing with a mobile device. if you are accustomed to using google chrome, then the symbols you see running across the top of the browser will seem very familiar, such as the home symbol, or the three grey lines that indicate the options menu.

a streamlined program for limited web surfing

the browser loads web pages in a way that allows you to browse quickly if you have a slow internet connection. the notifications function needs a tweak, but understanding and accessing the tools is very simple and convenient--especially the download tool that starts automatically when you instigate a download.
it has a very similar interface to google chrome, except that the design has a chinese style, though all the text is in english. the tools do not require a lot of memory or processing power, which is why the tools appear and start working far quicker than with firefox.
one of the best usability features is the fact that you may open a number of different tabs without it slowing down your computer or causing a crash. for example, with internet explorer, if you open numerous videos in different tabs, then your browser slows down and/or crashes on slower computers--whereas with uc, the tabs will only load once you click on them.

it is best used by people with slower computers or internet speeds

the uc browser for pc is an expanded version of the very popular uc browser for mobile devices. as a result, it is easier and quicker to use because everything you need is right there on the screen with less need to skip between one option and another.
in addition to it it is also better optimized for slower internet speeds, which is a carryover from the mobile version -since many mobile devices have slower internet speeds than most desktop computers.
even if you have a fast computer, the uc web browser is still a fine choice because it allows you to quickly browse the internet while still having numerous background processes underway.
if you are having problems with your current desktop browsers because they load or render too slowly, then the uc web browser is a must. if you have a slower computer and/or a slower internet connection and you are tired of looking at blank browsers while you wait for the pages to render, then uc is definitely the browser for you.

lichtspeer is a game of stunning aural power, from its marble-white protagonist with few features to the chalk-dust landscapes that you navigate. the central gameplay is throwing spears at enemies as you move right, like in a platformer. but the intricacies of combat and the way the world is laid out will form a game that's as much experience as it is tactical challenge. the only real issues are that it's over quickly, that it can be difficult to see what you're doing in some areas, and that a very talented player might figure things out too quickly!

creating new passwords every time i register for a online service is getting harder and harder. but before starting to use the same word everywhere and thus compromising my security, i'd rather use a password manager.

if you're in the same situation, acebit password depot is probably your best choice. this comprehensive manager can handle all the usernames and passwords for all kinds of services, from online banking to ftp servers, including forums, blogs, email addresses and just about any other place where you're requested a password.

all your passwords are stored in a single database that can be saved in various locations (local drive, usb device, internet server) and protected with a master password, a key file or both. you can organize your passwords in different categories and also assign an expiry date to them so that you're forced to change them on a regular basis.

in case you run out of ideas when coming up with new passwords, the program includes a password generator but i didn't find it that useful: it grabs characters from a matrix-like code stream and doesn’t really produce usable passwords.

acebit password depot still keeps an ace up its sleeve though: its seamless integration with your web browser, which enables you to manage passwords comfortably while you're browsing the internet without having to change from one application to another.

acebit password depot is as near to perfection as any password manager would like to reach: easy enough for the beginner and full of handy tools for expert users

blisk is a free web browser, at least in name. it's tailor-made to test the web readiness of websites, from their html coding to advanced applets inside of them. it offers several features useful for this purpose, such as automatically refreshing the displayed page when it's changed, and more powerful tools for web developers both new and old.

extremely refreshing

it's hard to overstate just how useful automatically refreshing the page is. blisk does this whenever a source file is changed, meaning that you can see the changes you make to a web page displayed in the browser in nearly real time. this saves a click and a couple seconds each time you use it, but working on a web page, that saved time adds up very quickly. it's particularly effective if you have more than one monitor. of course, blisk includes support for mobile websites, too: it would be a much weaker offering if it didn't. blisk's most advanced feature is probably the debugging devtools it provides, which debug websites in both desktop and mobile form.

work at a brisk pace

top that off with strong support for different languages and frameworks, and blisk is worth a try for any web developer who feels like their current testing methods aren't working as well as possible. the only caveats are that the browser itself is poor for hopping from page to page, and that using multiple 'devices' takes getting used to.

something for everyone

one of the best things about the software is its mass appeal. if you are a computer novice looking to fix something unfamiliar, a powerful search feature and expert help are available. on the other hand, if you are more comfortable with drivers, a database of over 8 million files is available for access. the software is simple to set up and operate with clear instructions, and while it may be only a very rare occasion in which you need it, the daily updates mean driver easy is always ready to go. the software does have a relatively high price but is decent value for money, meaning it may be best for those with a specific issue.

drivers as needed

driver easy is a solid piece of software, but it may be difficult to justify an annual license unless you have a large amount of issues or are a professional.

most of us who own an mp3 player or play digital music on a computer will admit that it’s possible to get a little precious over your audio collection. there’s something very satisfying about having a hoard of music with the correct track and album names for each song. not only does it look a lot cleaner in your player, but it makes it a darn sight easier to organize your collection and manage playlists. ensuring that all the tags in your audio files are correct can be a thankless task, but there’s plenty of software around that will make a much quicker job of it.

mp3tag is one of the better tag editors around, allowing you to edit the metadata (the information about a track’s name, size, album name, artwork, etc.) with a good degree of autonomy. the app lets you rename files based on this tag information, replace characters or words from tags and filenames, import/export tag information, and create playlists. it carries out its duties does the job very well too. for instance, the program has a much cleaner interface than many of its rivals and is smaller to boot, making it very quick and responsive.

if you find that you have a lot of different audio formats on your machine that you want to keep in check then mp3tag is perfect. it supports virtually every major audio file type, so you can edit tags for ogg, musepack, and aac/mp4, besides just mp3s.

perhaps the biggest boon though is the inclusion of a link-up with the online freedb database to import tags from the appropriate album, spelling a swift end to those mp3 albums you get with track names like ‘track01’, ‘track02’, ‘track03’, etc.) while the data returned from the freedb is sometimes erroneous, it’s generally pretty good (though probably not quite as quick as the import tool in tag&rename).

it’s fair to say that mp3tag is one of the clear leaders in its field, and considering it’s a freeware app, it’s well worth downloading if you want to clean- up your music collection. tag editing is very quick and once you’ve given your audio the mp3tag treatment, you should find it so much easier to organize your tracks.

with for honor, you are a viking invader in a hack and slash game. unlike many others, it is not a game where you slice through hundreds of enemies with ease (as you do with god of war). instead, you have to carefully chip away at your enemies until they die before having to move on to the next. it is similar to the early tenchu games with a hint of the ps2’s crouching tiger game.

a railroad hack and slash

watch the for honor trailers or the gameplay, and you will notice very quickly that the game is a railroad game. it is not railroading at the level of “temple run,” as there is a little wiggle room as you play, but mostly it is a case of following a single track with very little deviation or room to get lost. this is not a bad thing in this context, but it does damage the overall replayability of the game. the first level is probably the most railroaded; where you may get the feeling they are trying to train you up to play the rest of the game. for example, in one scene, the narrator tells you that you are supposed to slide down the big chain.

one of the best features of for honor is that when you are with other allies, you are not the only one that is swarmed. people seem to be doing their own thing on the battlefield, which is rather refreshing, especially if you are used to modern fps games. some may find the combat a little slow, but that it part and parcel of the fact you are controlling a heavyset man with a weighty weapon.

well rendered and expertly designed

the cut scene graphics are almost up to the standard of realistic cg movies, such as final fantasy rather than toy story. sadly, the voiceover is such a cliché that you may be tempted to skip the cut scene. it is the typical husky voice with “heard-it-all-before” tropes. they should have tried something new, such as samuel lj shouting about getting these m-f-ing vikings off this m-f-ing boat. nevertheless, once you have skipped the cut scenes, you will have to put up with the narrator’s annoying comments for a while.

the in-play graphics are very well lit, well designed and well rendered. you may become a little tired of the same brown colors reappearing again and again, but other games have done far worse with a far better palette. the character rendering is good, and it is easy to see what another character is gearing up to do, which means the blocking and dodging mechanisms work rather well and become an integral part of the gameplay experience.

the impact sounds are understated, but that is a good thing. games don’t always have to have marvel movie sound effects. it is good to be able to swing your axe and miss without having to hear a monstrous impact sounds.


there is plenty of room to improve your fighting skills. the fighting mechanics are not as complex as one may hope, but if you learn how to time your blocks, your movement, and your strikes, then it can make for a very interesting game. obviously, you may run in and smash your way through, but it will damage your gameplay experience and probably lead to you becoming bored.

as hack-and-slash games go, it doesn’t offer you anything that you haven’t seen before, but it does deviate from the more popular slash-the-swarm genre that has appeared. yes, occasionally you will be swarmed by enemies, but not nearly as much as you will with other games. this game is not about killing as many enemies as you can with one hit, it is about tactically removing enemies with clever strikes and sexy moves in order to defeat them one at a time.

sniper elite 4 is the fourth instalment in the sniper elite series of tactical shooter games. in this game, you play an american oss agent working together with the italian resistance during world war ii. you'll need tactical thinking, stealth and marksmanship to complete the game's challenging missions.

win battles with your brain

if you've played previous sniper elite games, you'll be familiar with the basics of sniper elite 4, but this entry in the series changes a few things. most notably, the maps are larger, with more vertical levels and more opportunity to roam around. you can climb and hang from ledges, giving you more freedom of movement. this makes the puzzle-like nature of the levels more challenging and entertaining, with more possible solutions. in addition to your trusty sniper rifle, you have a few other tools in your arsenal, including the ability to wire an enemy's corpse with a booby trap to take out his comrades. reconnaissance is as important as combat, and you'll want to spend some time at the beginning of each level using your binoculars to scout the area and identify the most important targets. taking out enemy officers first will make your task much easier.

good things come to those who wait

if you think patience and planning are more fun than booting in the door and going in blasting, sniper elite 4 might be the shooter for you.

app features

way before whatsapp web came onto the market, telegram already offered a desktop version of its security-focused messaging app. it may be light on features compared to the likes of skype, but it's still years ahead of whatsapp, which is still yet to release a desktop client (as its founders like to point out).

send telegrams from any device

to start using telegram for desktop you must already have signed up for an account on the android, ios, or windows phone app. once you've verified your details via a mobile app you're ready to start chatting.

the app allows you to easily message your mobile contacts, send an unlimited number of audio and video files (in batches if you chose), as well as insert emoticons and stickers of famous world leaders including gandhi. telegram for desktop also integrates well with other social networking services (such as youtube, instagram, and twitter), showing previews of any content you have shared in the app, as well as making any instagram or twitter mentions in these previews clickable. however, voice and video calling is currently not available.

while your phone contacts are automatically synced to the desktop version, you can also search for additional people via their usernames. notification settings can also be edited for each individual contact - so you can effectively mute friends if they're sending you too many messages!

one of the strengths of telegram is its group chat feature. unlike other messaging apps, telegram can have more than one administrator. administrators can change the photo and name of the group, as well as add or delete members. the service also allows you to create groups of up to 1,000 people!

prioritizing speed and security

security has always been telegram's major point of differentiation and this is no different with the desktop version. the messages are encrypted in the cloud, but there is no secret chat (self-destructing, not stored on the company's servers, and can't be forwarded) option for the desktop version. in terms of security for accessing the desktop client, telegram for desktop includes two-factor authentication, so you can set up an additional step to stop unauthorized logins. from the program, you can also review all the places/devices where you are logged in and stop individual sessions.

with whatsapp having been acquired by facebook, there are fears about what will happen to users' data, which is where telegram hopes to gain ground with its promise never to sell user data.

speed is another major plus point for telegram. sending a batch of ten photos happened immediately, while audio and video is also very quick to upload and send.

while the desktop version may be lacking features of its mobile sisters (secret chats, voice messaging, and group chats), it's still a nifty messaging service. messages sync seamlessly across devices and once you've seen a message on one device, it's marked as read on the other, meaning you don't have to deal with multiple notifications.

whatsapp you say?

telegram is a credible alternative to whatsapp, especially given that the latter doesn't yet have a desktop client. with privacy and security being key for today's users, telegram has built a solid place for itself in the market. the desktop client isn't as fully featured as viber and skype, but if it's speed and security you're after, this is the app for you.

one of most common reasons for your pc slowing down is processes that are hogging your system and taking all your cpu.

process lasso aims to solve this problem by reducing the priority of those processes that are not important and returned to a responsive level. it also works with multiple processes that are causing a problem so it can deal with more than one program at once. if you think that process lasso is prioritising the wrong processes, then you can define default processes that you want to be controlled or kept an eye on.

process lasso also displays graphs and other graphical represeantations to show you which processes are requiring the most cpu usage. you can blacklist those processes that are showing rather high graph readings or that are clearly taking up more cpu usage than they deserve.

although process lasso requires no experience, it does offer advanced settings and twesking options to make sure that it only blocks those processes that are specified or targeted by yourself. fortunately, process lasso itself is very low on resources so it will not add to your cpu hogging problems.

process lasso is a very useful process monitor than will ensure your cpu only dedicates itself to those programs that really need it.

united airlines is a huge airline with a lot of clout, but regular mobile users will know that a big name company doesn’t always have a high quality app or even a great website. this airline app risks falling into that category- but when it works, it’s a great app with a lot of useful functionality. anything you could want related to your flight is somewhere inside, all for free.

features and functions

the united airlines app has been updated recently, providing several new features. starting with the obvious, you can book your flights on this app, which you should find easier than using the website. this app lets you keep up with your flight status with constant updates, something which is increasingly common now but was unheard of just a few years ago. get started by signing in to your mileageplus account and the appropriate options will appear. you can then use your phone as a boarding pass, a very efficient way to go, especially for frequent flyers. check in, choose alternate flight options and upgrade your seating all from your mobile device. you can even view maps of airports, vital when you’re in a new place and your flight is about to leave! on the opposite side, when you’re early and have time to kill, you can play sudoku games.

but is it smooth flying?

the united airlines app has had an overhaul in usability and access, largely improving things. the app has a clean, tile-based navigation menu and is easy on the eye, with good font sizes and clear labelling. the addition of a widget mode goes some way to providing more function and usability too. the other main navigation aid is the travel card system, which arranges features onto tabbed cards. pick a card that suits you and you’ll find the options listed on it. when you log in with your mileageplus account, the app generates cards that meet your needs, a great way to speed up navigation and make the app user-friendly. the app is meant to be compatible with tablets too, however, a lot of users have been struggling with crashes and incompatibilities, on tablet and mobile. of course, all apps go through these development hiccups.

a powerful app with teething problems

despite a few issues with compatibility, which are bound to be rectified in time, the united airlines app is very flexible and powerful. anything you could want is built into the app, making it simple and quick to book flights, check in and find your way around without needing lots of pieces of paper. little touches like the sudoku add value to the app and you will keep finding extra options like this if you search around. overall, this app is easy to use and a standard, capable companion to the airline website.

genesis alpha one allows you to create a base in space where humans have to live, work, fight and love. during your base building adventure, you will be invaded by strange alien beings that need to be removed with extreme prejudice. it is a survival game, a base building game and a shooting game all in one. the fps feature favors new players, and the cloning feature is something that may interest long-term players.

the game revolves around base building

when playing genesis alpha one, you will spend most of your time building your base and maintaining it. the aim is to provide your human colony with all they need to survive. that is where the survival aspect comes into it because just a little mismanagement and poor planning will leave your colony without the basics it needs to survive. you will then start to discover that whole hosts of aliens have found their way onto your space station, from small parasitic aliens to larger and more aggressive monsters. the base building graphics are sophisticated without being overstated, and the first-person shooting graphics are gritty and dirty, a little like the earlier aliens and alien vs. predator games from the late 00s.

a base builder with a mix of other games

primarily, genesis alpha one is a game for people who enjoy base building games. the stakes are rather low with regards to it being a survival game because you have to mess up pretty badly and pretty consistently in order to wipe out your colony. the first-person shooting aspect is a very nice twist and it adds an extra dimension of fun into the game. it is a nice idea that has been reasonably well executed.

there are hundreds of emoji keyboard apps out there, letting you add more variety to your emoji icons when you text or use other messenger apps. finding one which suits you can be tricky, or even just finding one that’s not like the others. fortunately, free apps like bitmoji for chrome are on the case! this app allows you to create an avatar and build your emojis from it, so they’ll be unique to you. this simple and clever idea really makes your gmail messages personal.

why this chrome extension for gmail over all the rest?

bitmoji for chrome has the edge on many emoji apps because of its uniqueness. rather than trying to compete in number of emojis -where admittedly this app falls way short- it focuses on giving you different, personalized emojis. the concept is surprisingly simple; the app lets you build an avatar from a series of face shapes, body types, hair and clothing. then that avatar is posed in various ways to create the emojis, with each one starring you (or whoever you create). that way, you get to inject yourself into your gmail emails. the app’s icons are fairly varied, from a flirty kiss to fist-bump for respect. the number of attributes that let you personalize your avatar increase the variety further, so you can change up your hair or clothes if you get bored. you can have fun making the wildest or ugliest version of yourself!

a clever way to create variety

while bitmoji for chrome could stand to have more stickers, there’s still a lot of variety here thanks to the personalized nature of the avatars. this clever idea lets you become the star of your own emojis and the added function of 2-person emojis is great fun with friends. though this extension is simple and won’t add a huge amount of icons to your collection, they are of high quality and feel unique and interesting.

the warlock of firetop mountain game allows you to create your own journey and adventure while battling with an rpg game mechanic. fight with turn-based combat and choose the direction your story goes. fight your way into zagor's lair with the hero of your choice, and make choices that will affect how the game turns out.

another instant classic rpg by steve jackson

if you have played other steve jackson story games, then you will know what to expect. the warlock of firetop mountain places you in a small tabletop environment where the terrain generates as you move from one location to another. the graphics are initially simple, but the textures, 3d objects, and lighting is very sophisticated, which results in a very atmospheric game. the game involves lots of reading because text panels spawn whenever you interact with objects, and you have to read the story as you go. as the text-based story is generated, you are expected to choose an option to progress the game. they have added xbox controller compatibility, which means you can play the game on your pc with an xbox controller. it is 100 times better with the controller.

it feels like you are playing dungeons and dragons with friends

if you have ever played dungeons and dragons, you will feel quite nostalgic when you play the warlock of firetop mountain. for example, one line says, ?you open a door to find a large room with two orcs.? if you are a fan of text driven games, or games by steve jackson, then you will not be disappointed. the combat doesn?t feel as complete as previous steve jackson games, but the story will more than make up for the lack of sizzle when you engage in the game?s turn-based combat.

each game of lego worlds starts in a randomly generated environment. for now there are no concrete objectives, but that doesn’t stop you being able to find lego pieces and using them to build prefabricated designs like medieval castles, spaceships, and the like. basically, bringing your toys to life in its virtual world.

you are driven to explore each environment thanks to the variety of each virtual lego world. being adventurous has its rewards, because each virtual world hides multiple coin filled chests - coins that allow you to buy more things to construct.

beautiful blocks

in some boxes you can also find weapons. what for? well, lego worlds is full of characters and animals of all kinds: vampires, horses, pigs, zombies... some of which you can probably see are going to be more friendly than others.

graphically, lego worlds is notably more detailed than default minecraft. effects such as reflections, lights, and shadows fill each area, and look great. plus there is a day/night cycle; fun, if only because sunrise and sunset look fantastic.

currently lego worlds is very incomplete. you can explore, build, drive, ride animals, and unlock more structures. but there is still much to do before it’s finished - with multiplayer, more environments, the ability to share your creations online, better tools, and character customization still all needed.

a work in progress

is lego worlds worth a download at the moment? it depends. if the concept of lego minecraft appeals then certainly - but keep in mind that you are paying for a demo. if you are after a full a full game, you should wait a little longer.

comodo dragon is a powerful browser that's based on chromium, the source code for google chrome. it's fast, dynamic and has plenty of features for making online browsing more secure. 



first priority: online security


comodo dragon is more than just a simple "copy" of chrome. it comes with several very useful features and plenty of security options. during installation, for example, the program gives you the option to add comodo securedns, which guarantees safe web browsing and restricts access to high-risk sites.

the browser includes the webinspector online service, a tool that verifies a websites security, and privdog, which blocks ads, cookies, trackers and third-party widgets.

in addition, comodo dragon also comes with a media downloader to download online videos for free, and a feature to instantly share web content to your facebook, twitter and linkedin accounts.

it's also got some interesting features for searching online and sharing content. you can highlight text and then drag and drop it in the address bar to run a search on google, google images, google translate, youtube, or wikipedia. you can also share links and content on facebook, twitter, pinterest, google plus, or linkedin by simply dragging and dropping them in the browser's left margin.

like google chrome, comodo dragon creates a separate process for each open tab, includes a bookmark manager, and has a home page with previews of your most visited sites, as well as the option to create private browsing sessions. comodo dragon also supports the same installable extensions as chrome. 


elegant design


in terms of it's use, comodo dragon isn't much different from chrome. the design is simple and elegant with a predominance of dark tones. on the other hand, it does seem more rigid than google's browser.

the tools menu is located on the left (not on the right like in chrome). next to the address bar, you can find buttons for privdog, webinspector, share and media downloader. 



like chrome, but more


the developer's slogan makes it clear: "a safer and faster version of chrome." and so far, comodo dragon has kept its promise.

the browser is fast, but more importantly, it's very careful when it comes to privacy and network security. the preinstalled plugins are very effective, and comodo securedns is incredibly useful for blocking sites with a high risk of malware and other online threats.

the comodo dragon browser is ideal if you're looking for something a bit more advanced than google chrome in terms of features. it's perfect for anyone who wants more security when surfing online.
