“Mispelled” – A New and Ironic Game for Your Apple Watch

“Mispelled” – A New and Ironic Game for Your Apple Watch

mispelled app

I’m always looking for ways to entertain myself.  More specifically, when I don’t have any other option.  Like, if I’m waiting at the dentist or for a doctor’s appointment.  Sure, I could read one of the germ infested magazines.  I can browse Twitter or Instagram (which is what I usually do), but sometimes I just get bored of that.  And I’ve been looking for some kind game that I doesn’t require a lot of time or skill.  Something that I can open once a week, or less often and be able to pick up where I left of.  So I was pretty excited when I saw the game “Mispelled”.    What is even more cool about the game is that it’s available exclusively on your Apple Watch.

Yes, you download the app to your phone, but you can’t play it on your phone.  You have to play it on your watch.  I wrote a piece last week around the idea of smart watch etiquette.  And whether or not it’s rude to check your watch when you receive a notification.  Smart watch games elevate this idea, because you’re not necessarily checking that your friend has messaged you, but rather you’re playing a game. Fortunately, this game doesn’t require constant action, but it does require you to answer a puzzle in a short amount of time.

I love the concept of this game.  Which is to figure out what the word is that is misspelled.  … Read the rest

Fans Outraged by CD Projekt Red Trademarking “Cyberpunk”

Fans Outraged by CD Projekt Red Trademarking “Cyberpunk”

I have been known to blow things out of proportion on occasion.  For those of you who know me, you can attest to this.  But as I read an article today, I started to wonder if I, the over reactor is under reacting to something?  Or do I just not get what all the fuss is about?  According to Gizmodo, the makers of The Witchers franchise started a process for trademarking the word “cyberpunk”.  Fans seemed to lose their cool with this one, and accused CD Projekt Red of doing this for nefarious reasons.  Umm… what claim do they have to back that up?  There are trademark rules, and anyone can attempt to trade mark a word or phrase, so long as it falls into those rules.  Further, who cares?  I mean, does the trade marking of a word impact the fans that much?

I guess maybe the first issue, for me, is that I legitimately don’t support anything with such passion.  So don’t take my comments as negative.  I am simply trying to understand this.  Also, I’ve been trying to be less reactive to situations.  As I said, I have a tendency to blow things out of proportion.  So I totally get where the fans are coming from, but at the same time, we need to look at it from the big picture. The article goes on to further say that you can’t trademark the word “cyberpunk” because it would be like trademarking “romantic comedy”.  … Read the rest

With over 1.5 billion downloads, the Angry Birds franchise certainly needs no introduction. The only question that remains is: How many of you are going to download Angry Birds 2?

Angry Birds 2 is out! It should really be called Angry Bird 11. The Angry Bird games is the latest in a what seems to be an endless flow of apps. Rovio has survived in the mobile game space since the company released Angry Birds. That is a very hard feat to do achieve. Just as Zynga. Angry Birds has had different interpretations of the game almost like every year. They have had Star Wars, Transformers and there is even a Mario Kart version. This is finally the first sequel to the original people have been waiting for. Rovio hasn’t made a sequel for the original title that launched all the way back in 2009. You’re still throwing birds at pigs but there are so much more. The gameplay has been tweaked with new multi-stage levels. You now have spells and big Boss battles with pigs. Rovio is hoping that this Angry Birds 2 will recapture the first game’s great success.
