particularly given the presence of the massive Notre-Dame Cathedral, which Ubisoft spent a year crafting to resemble the real thing. The city of love won&#39;t be so welcoming as the French Revolution rages on, but that ought to make for a great action-game setting.</p> <p>This time around, you&#39;ll take the role of Arno Dorian, an Assassin whose adoptive father was an enemy Templar. His love interest? Also a Templar, named Elise &ndash; so expect some tricky business there.</p> <p>Like his series predecessors, Arno is skilled in both combat and speedy navigation, but has been described by Ubisoft as &quot;more ruthless&quot;. His Phantom Blade modifies the usual hidden blade with a throwing ability, plus Arno wields a French cutlass and a multi-barrel pistol. In sum? Expect plenty of conflict around ol&#39; Paris.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/25-best-fps-games-ever/news">The 30 best first-person shooter games ever</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/esHd9JlpR2Q" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-05.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-03.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Live together, die alone </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>For the past few entries, <em>Assassin&#39;s Creed</em> has split its gameplay between the standard single-player campaign and a separate online multiplayer mode. And that&#39;s been a largely successful approach &ndash; sometimes more on the competitive end than the narrative adventure side of things.</p> <p>But as its title implies, <em>Unity</em> is all about teamwork, and not in some walled-off side mode &ndash; it&#39;s within the campaign. Granted, the four-player online co-op doesn&#39;t extend throughout the entire campaign, but numerous missions allow you to link up with others and execute grand assaults and assassinations, with each player taking on a unique skill that benefits the team. The fluid, complex E3 demo was enough to convince us of its potential brilliance.</p> <p>Alas, the trade-off here is that <em>Unity</em> will be the first core series entry in five years without a competitive multiplayer component. Still, that seems a fair omission, and since Ubisoft is always working on multiple entries at once across its numerous studios, that&#39;ll give them time to shake things up for next year&#39;s inevitable release.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/20-most-exciting-games-left-2014/feature">The 20 most exciting games still to come in 2014</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed: Unity" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-unity-06.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Back to basics </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Unity</em> looks really fabulous in the demos, but we&#39;ll see if it actually runs that well on an <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/microsoft/microsoft-xbox-one/review" target="_blank">Xbox One</a> or <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/playstation-4/review" target="_blank">PlayStation 4</a> &ndash; considering what happened with <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/playstation-4/watchdogs-preview/review" target="_blank">Watch_Dogs</a> between its first demo and eventual release, we&#39;ll have to play this one to believe it. But alongside the promised new-gen visual upgrade comes tweaks to the core fundamentals of the series.</p> <p>For example, the parkour and climbing action features new &quot;Parkour Up&quot; and &quot;Parkour Down&quot; input options, which allow you to better navigate the terrain and chain together really fluid, tricky commands &ndash; such as leaping downwards, swinging from a post for a moment, and then grabbing on to a ledge on a perpendicular wall.</p> <p>On the stealth side of things, you&#39;ll be able to take cover throughout the world rather than relying on groups of gypsies or sitting on benches; you can now crouch to hide behind objects and slip into alleys to try to disappear.

Multiplayer has also been cut from this entry, but here&#39;s hoping the campaign proves essential enough for even day-one <em>Unity</em> buyers to go back and fire up a last-gen console to dig into.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/microsoft/gamescom-2014/gamescom-2014-ultimate-roundup/feature" target="_blank">Gamescom 2014: the ultimate trailer and news round-up</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/R6M_jpmLydw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Assassin&#039;s Creed Rogue" alt="Assassin&#039;s Creed Rogue" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/assassins-creed-rogue-01.jpg?1408503969" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-4"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Vive la révolution! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><em>Assassin&#39;s Creed Unity</em> launches worldwide for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on 28 October, and what we&#39;ve seen thus far has truly impressed throughout.</p> <p>The series has had a real up-and-down trajectory in recent years, with <em>Revelations</em> and <em>Assassin&#39;s Creed III</em> both underwhelming, but <em>Black Flag</em> representing a nice twist.

Of course, while sight seems so intrinsic to the experience of watching something on a screen for stimuli, a new mobile game is part of an emerging genre catering to the visually challenged.</p> <p>&ldquo;Blind Legend&rdquo; is told from the point of view of a blind protagonist and also presents players with one of the big intricacies of being blind &ndash; relying almost completely on sound to navigate the world.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Imagination is the best worldbuilder </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p dir="ltr" id="docs-internal-guid-82d9b5eb-ed29-32f3-f304-eaa931a226ac">To create the game, Dowino studios of France uses a technique called binaural recording which uses a dummy fitted with tiny condenser microphones that mimic the way humans naturally hear sound. Every scene in the game is recorded binaurally for an accurate and purportedly immersive aural experience &ndash; hugely important when audio is supposed to be the main sense used.</p> <p dir="ltr">The game follows a knight who has lost his eyesight and must venture into the forest to rescue his wife from violent kidnappers. Along the way, he is guided by his daughter. But the point of view is maintained throughout &ndash; the screen is completely dark during the entire game while you use finger swipes to swing a sword or move your feet.</p> <p dir="ltr">And as expected, the superb audio is your main source of information regarding your surroundings. Nordine Ghachi, one of the men behind the game, says &ldquo;You should definitely wear headphones to get the full benefits. You can hear what&#39;s happening all around you. The noises of the forest, the birds flying above and the river flowing. You hear these sounds, and that information helps the gamer locate themselves in that environment.&rdquo;</p> <p dir="ltr">Dowino Studios used a crowdfunding campaign to raise over 40,000 euros to launch production of the game, which is currently being beta tested. The game should be available via the App Store sometime next year.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>READ MORE</strong>: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/25-best-iphone-and-ipad-games-you-can-play-right-now/feature">The 25 best iPhone and iPad games you can play right now</a></p> <p dir="ltr">[Source: <a href="http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28757186" target="_blank">BBC</a><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/ios/ios-games">]</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/Tk2z7WwjZeM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/blind-legend-takes-video-out-videogames/news#comments Apps and Games iOS games Tue, 19 Aug 2014 07:32:27 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1445270 at http://www.stuff.tv Twitter still trying to be Facebook, angers users by tweeting their Favourites http://www.stuff.tv/my/twitter/twitter-still-trying-be-facebook-angers-users-tweeting-their-favourites/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sponsored tweets are one thing but cluttered feeds?

The app pulls it from information like when you saved the contact, how often and when you contact them, maybe even where you saved them. It can also supplant contact information from your email and social media accounts &ndash; even if they weren&#39;t explicitly saved in your address book, which is something already done in Motorola phones.</p> <p>The open beta for the app rolled out in January and intentionally pulled a diverse group of testers: from Fortune 100 recipients to celebrities to high school students. The full list comprises of over 20,000 people from all over the globe. Humin CEO and co-founder Ankur Jain calls these early users &ldquo;influencers&rdquo; and hunted for the demographics specifically for their enormous and unwieldy contact lists.</p> <p>Through their feedback, the app comes with some very fine-tuned search options. For example, &ldquo;works at Google&rdquo; or &ldquo;met last weekend&rdquo; significantly helps to make sense of the massive list of people in their contact list to find exactly who they are thinking of.</p> <p>The most common feedback, according to Jain, is why this hasn&#39;t been done earlier. He explains the idea is intuitive and quite natural to think about, the reason it&#39;s taken this long is simply because technology&#39;s only recently evolved enough to solve this issue.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/30-best-free-apps-android/feature">30 best free Android apps</a></p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://mashable.com/2014/08/14/humin-app-launch" target="_blank">Mashable</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Humin app optimises your contacts" alt="Humin app optimises your contacts" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/humin02.jpg?1408147858" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/humin-app-optimises-your-contacts/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/humin-app-optimises-your-contacts/news#comments Apps and Games iOS apps Fri, 15 Aug 2014 07:26:57 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1444910 at http://www.stuff.tv Indie game Caffeine is a coffee lover's waking nightmare http://www.stuff.tv/my/indie-game-coffee-lovers-waking-nightmare/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Game posits a future where we really have run out of coffee and need to run to the next galaxy for it </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Indie game is a coffee lover&#039;s waking nightmare" alt="Indie game is a coffee lover&#039;s waking nightmare" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/caffeine.jpg?1408147570" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Dylan Browne probably knows too well the desperation of someone deprived of coffee.

The station is just one of many created so that corporations can mine minerals to create synthetic caffeine. So you find yourself wandering the station to find out just what&#39;s going on.</p> <p>The game is being developed in Unreal Engine 4, which &quot;allows for a very high visual fidelity&quot;. Meaning it&#39;ll have decent graphics for a one-man indie game.</p> <p>What Browne promises is the game will eventually make its way to the PS4, support Occulus Rift as well as be released on Windows, Mac and Linux versions. Pretty ambitious for a solo game studio and from the video demo of the game, it looks pretty polished.</p> <p>To know what you&#39;re getting there&#39;s actually an option to download Windows and Linux demos so you can decide for yourself if it&#39;s worth backing.</p> <p>Browne&#39;s campaign is asking only US$5000 and for the minimum sum of US$15 you&#39;ll get yourself a copy of the game when it releases some time next year. A good bet for people into survival games or think US$15 isn&#39;t too much for a game with an interesting enough premise.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/sg/stuffs-200-greatest-games-all-time/feature">Stuff&#39;s 200 greatest games of all time</a></p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.cnet.com/news/sci-fi-survival-horror-explores-the-dangers-of-caffeine/">CNet</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/v_PJ78kKSQM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/indie-game-coffee-lovers-waking-nightmare/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/indie-game-coffee-lovers-waking-nightmare/news#comments Apps and Games Fri, 15 Aug 2014 06:57:34 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1444907 at http://www.stuff.tv New tweak in Uber app makes it easier for drivers to bring you to your destination http://www.stuff.tv/my/uber-tweaks-app-offer-seamless-end-end-service/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Its newly integrated turn-by-turn navigation saves precious seconds of your time </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="567" height="425" title="Uber tweaks app to offer seamless end-to-end service" alt="Uber tweaks app to offer seamless end-to-end service" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/uber%2001_0.jpg?1408068635" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>For many cosmopolitan urban dwellers, Uber has filled a huge void &ndash; car service may be unreliable and cabs and public transportation will always remain overly noisy, cramped and otherwise disruptive. But the company is taking steps to make the experience even better.</p> <p>Wednesday marked a new day for Uber regulars as the company rolled out two rather significant features to its apps &ndash; one for the driver and one for the rider.</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/erna-mahyuni" title="View user profile.">Erna Mahyuni</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Cheaper, faster, better? </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Guess what, the second feature directly complements the first. Passengers can now enter their destination directly into the app, which we suppose is what helps the app supply and retrieve the directions to feed the driver later. But that&rsquo;s the back-end. On the front-end, the two combined means your car comes to pick you up and you&rsquo;re immediately whisked off to your destination as soon as you close the door.</p> <p>Uber also assures us that the destination entered is kept away from the driver&rsquo;s side, to ensure fares can&rsquo;t be cherrypicked. Drivers are only informed of the passenger&rsquo;s destination at pick-up.</p> <p>Uber started as a niche venture in San Francisco, bringing comfortable, personalized, on-demand car service. It has expanded its business to over 40 countries around the world including cities in the UK, South Africa, India, Malaysia and Singapore. The company has also introduced UberX in certain countries &ndash; a venture to bring the Uber experience at cheaper prices.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://Uber tweaks app to offer seamless end-to-end service" target="_blank">Uber</a>]</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Uber tweaks app to offer seamless end-to-end service" alt="Uber tweaks app to offer seamless end-to-end service" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/uber%2002.jpg?1408068635" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/uber-tweaks-app-offer-seamless-end-end-service/news" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/uber-tweaks-app-offer-seamless-end-end-service/news#comments Apps and Games Windows Phone apps Thu, 14 Aug 2014 07:40:53 +0000 Erna Mahyuni 1444817 at http://www.stuff.tv HTC rolling out apps to all Android phones http://www.stuff.tv/my/htc-rolling-out-apps-all-android-phones/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> You&#039;ll now be able to download the likes of the Zoe video creator app even if you use a rival Android phone </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="What HTC Zoe would look like on a Samsung Galaxy S5" alt="What HTC Zoe would look like on a Samsung Galaxy S5" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/htc-zoe-on-samsung-galaxy-s5.jpg?1408083546" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>HTC&#39;s Sense Android skin&nbsp;is one of the best out there, and now some of its features are set to make their way over to other Android phones.</p> <p>The Taiwanese manufacturer has set up a new business unit, HTC Creative Labs, to develop apps for Android phones &ndash;

The streets will also be wider, to make it more fun to drive around in Batman&rsquo;s tank dragster, while extra effort is also going into making Gotham feel more alive and real - you&rsquo;ll be able to see into buildings through windows and hear noise from the street when indoors.</p> <p>Also, each of Gotham&rsquo;s neighbourhoods are set to have a distinctive look, which should help make it easier to navigate than the samey Arkham City. And while the Scarecrow&rsquo;s Halloween bomb threat has cleared out the civilians, there will be loads of crims around; Rocksteady is promising four times as many thugs as in <em>Arkham City</em> and crowds of as many as 50 people, which you&#39;ll be able to scatter by charging towards them in your Batmobile.

The new gadgets are still under warps, but there will definitely be a souped-up grapnel gun that&#39;ll allow you to make mid-air U-turns.

Look out for a full review when the game launches sometime in 2015.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/first-play-child-light/feature" target="_blank">First play: Child Of Light</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/pO2_iUkojCY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-review-rating"><legend>Review Rating</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-review-score"> <div class="field-label">Score:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 0 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-preview"> <div class="field-label">Preview:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Preview </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-carousel-item"><legend>Carousel Extras</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-title"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Batman: Arkham Knight preview </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-carousel-item-standfirst"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item standfirst:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> A sneak peek at the Caped Crusader&#039;s new toys </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-carousel-image-small"> <div class="field-label">Carousel item small image:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_carousel_image_small" width="450" height="340" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Arkham-Knight-game-review-playstation-4-xbox-one-002_0.jpg?1407987749" /> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <p><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/playstation-4/batman-arkham-knight/review" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.stuff.tv/my/playstation-4/batman-arkham-knight/review#comments Apps and Games Console games Gaming PlayStation 4 Xbox One Mon, 04 Aug 2014 20:06:00 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1435241 at http://www.stuff.tv App of the week: Cinamatic http://www.stuff.tv/my/app-week-cinamatic/review <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The original Hipstamatic experience comes to video </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="604" height="453" title="Just a regular young professional&#039;s desk " alt="App of the week: Cinamatic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/Cinamatic_0.jpg?1407201076" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/peterawlins" title="View user profile.">Peter Rawlins</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>Remember Hipstamatic, the app that invented square photos with filters long before another snap-obsessed social network?

Sound familiar? OK it&#39;s a lot like Vine and Video on Instagram.

Sound simple? That&rsquo;s because it is.&nbsp;</p> <p>One advantage over Vine, though, is that it autofocuses well. This means that you don&rsquo;t need to keep tapping on the screen to get the camera to focus - Vine, on the other hand, can get seriously frustrating when one six second video takes five attempts to get right.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>READ MORE</strong>:<strong> <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/icheapskate-25-best-free-apps-iphone-and-ipad/feature">iCheapskate - the best free iPhone and iPad apps&nbsp;</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Surf&#039;s up " alt="App of the week: Cinamatic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Whats%20New.jpg?1407201076" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> FILTERS </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Built into the app are a variety of free filters - seven to be precise - from &lsquo;Darwin&rsquo; which gives an effect like an old school projector filter, to &rsquo;Bennett&rsquo; which creates saturated colors and has a blurred vignette effect.</p> <p>If you don&rsquo;t like those available, you can buy more in the &lsquo;Cinamatic Shop&rsquo; with previews to make sure you like what you are buying.</p> <p>If you want even more filter control, you can pay &pound;1.49 to get the &lsquo;Pro&rsquo; features, which allow you to edit the contrast, saturation, and brightness levels.&nbsp;And if you&rsquo;re prepared to cough up that extra money, you can also add music, edit clips (such as combining multiple clips into one and rearranging the clips you&rsquo;ve shot), as well as importing videos from your camera roll.</p> <p>The option to edit the clip later could be very handy especially if you start filming spur of the moment.

Instead, the app is designed to help you create good-looking videos, which you can then easily upload to Instagram, Vine, or Facebook at the click of a button, once you have finished editing them.&nbsp;</p> <p>The company took three years to create the app, because, as Hipstamatic founder Lucas Buick says, &quot;color grading footage isn&#39;t enough&quot;. This means that the processing engine creates custom effects for each clip, depending on the length and material filmed, which its rivals don&#39;t.</p> <p>The questions is: are loyal Instagrammers going to download a new app over using the recently introduced filter? It&rsquo;s a similar story with Vine.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re using the app for Vine, Cinamatic isn&#39;t going to get round the strict six second rule. If you do try to upload videos that are longer then this, you&#39;re warned that the video will be trimmed to the first &lsquo;6.5&rsquo; seconds. A better option would be to let you choose which six seconds of your clip you want to upload.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:</strong> <strong><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/vine/review">Vine review</a>&nbsp;</strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Easy sharing " alt="App of the week: Cinamatic" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/Social%20Networking.jpg?1407201076" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> CINAMATIC Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>With a simple, effective design, Cinamatic offers a free way to record and tweak your smartphone videos which end up looking rather good. &nbsp;</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re prepared to pay US$1.99 (RM6) for the &lsquo;Pro&rsquo; features then this app really stands out from the rest and it&#39;s a quicker way to shoot Vines than the official app itself.
