Everybody enjoys listening to music. However, what really determines your listening experience is how you decide to listen to your music. Many music lovers are moving their music to the cloud. While this is far more convenient compared to the traditional method of having a locally stored library, the quality of music is not always preserved.

Audiophiles such as myself typically use desktop players. Many desktop music players such as iTunes don’t always perform very well and don’t look too great either. If you happen to be on the lookout for a responsive, aesthetically pleasing, and free music player, Foobar2000 may be what you are looking for.

Is it worth checking out? Let’s take a look!

I’m an Apple user in every sense of the word. My computer’s a MacBook. My tablet’s an iPad. My phone’s an iPhone. I’m as immersed in Apple’s ecosystem as much as one could be but the recent launch of Windows 8 still very much piqued my attention. As I’m sure you’ve read, Windows 8 is a massive detour from the traditional desktop computer experience but this very example of innovation encouraged me to hand over my £25 and give Windows 8 a try.

This article isn’t actually a review, but rather my impressions with Windows 8 as someone who’s not properly used Windows in nearly two years and a comparison to my experiences with Windows 8. Let’s go Metro!

Long gone are the days when we physically had to flip through the pages to read the news. In this ADD infused age, who has the time to actually sit in a place and read what is going on? We have started to read 700 page novels in our laptops and tablets because it is convenient this way. So why not news?

Looking for a good news app, I came across Newser in the Windows Marketplace. Newser is one of those apps which gives you all the essential news from all around the world. The good thing is that the stories are not lengthy and you can actually read and parse something in less than a minute which is a boon to people who really don’t like to read much. All it takes is a decent internet connection and you can be well read and informed!

Superbrothers: Swords and Sworcery is an award winning game designed by Superbrothers and Capybara Games. Capybara Games is a relatively new studio, having started off in the mobile market back in 2005, and eventually making their way on to the likes of the XBox Live Arcade, Playstation Network, PC, OSX, Linux and the iOS mobile operating system.

Their most recent game before this one was a fairly small release of Critter Crunch back in in 2008. Capybara Games have had a long good grasp of the mobile operating system before they made their way to iOS, and from the success of this new game of theirs, they’ve come a long way.

Amazons Weekly Deals, out of the blue, had a Windows Phone for sale at £90. Conditioned through years of crapware, instantly I assumed something was wrong. I’d never seen Windows Phones go on sale for this low but at this low a price, I didn’t wish to miss out on this opportunity to test out the hardware. After researching the phone for around five minutes I decided it was worth a shot.

That’s when the ZTE Tania came into my life. Is it worth showing up in yours? Let’s find out!

Forensic analysis of a PC is a time consuming process as there are tons of data that has to be assimilated, dissected and analyzed. Not to mention organizing the information in the first place is a lot of hassle. Yes, there are applications that aid you, but the best ones are always expensive. Luckily, with OSForensics you might just have found a solution to your “investigation woes”.

OSForensics is a PC forensic analysis tool that lets you extract and analyze hidden information from a computer and manage all your forensic data. Though a number of similar open source software exist, few are loaded with as many features or work as efficiently as this app.

Well, it’s been great talking about these wonderful games that I got to play at the Eurogamer Expo, but it’s time to end. There have been so many fantastic games on show that honestly I think my wallet is going to be rather thin by the end of the next couple of months.

Last, but not least, we’ve still got a couple more games to get through. Hit the break to get started.

We all have played games that promise us open worlds and the freedom to pursue any mission in a variety of ways. Well, most of the time there are a couple of options given to the players under that banner, nothing more. False promises, I say. But then, there are those games, and there is Dishonored.

Dishonored is a game that has it all figured out right from the beginning. Be it the storyline, the characters, the artwork, the combat system or the missions, Dishonored comes across as an embellished title that leaves nothing to be desired. It burgeons towards the finale with a quick pace, leaving the gamers spellbound and completely entwined in the alleys of Dunwall and the life of Corvo Attano, the protagonist with supernatural abilities. So, are you ready to experience all of that and more? Well then, let me describe this beautiful journey to you!

Welcome back, it’s part four of Appstorm’s Eurogamer Expo roundup. The next two games will probably hold a special place in my heart.

I still remember fondly back in the late 90s when one day my dad once came home with two games: Theme Hospital and Simcity 2000. They were my world, and I still love them to this day. Now, more than a decade later, another two games are trying to steal my heart: Prison Architect and Simcity.

Hit the break to find out more about these wonderful games.

Welcome to the third part of the Eurogamer Expo round-up. Today we’ll be covering some delicious sequels. Unsurprisingly, there were a lot of sequels on show at the Eurogamer, but that’s what brings the crowds, of course. Apart from Dishonored and a couple of Indie Games I’ll be telling you about later on, it’s pretty much all sequels.

Hit the break to head in to the hot, dense jungles of our first game.
