I was as excited as a fat kid in a sweet shop when I got my Lego Technic Tow Truck.
As a kid I had loads of Lego. I used to build anything. I think I was about 9/10 when I got my first ever Lego technic set. I got a green dump truck. I was only young so don’t think I could build it that well. Now I look back to it was over 1500 pieces!
So, after reading a thread on a forum I go on where a lad got a Tower Bridge Lego set. This went on to loads of people going out and buying some amazing Lego models. I shopped around for a good few hours before I came to the decision that I wanted the Crane Truck (8258).
As some of you may know, i built a site http://xbonx.com which tracks gamertags. It creates game logs for every game you play and accounts achievements you earn.
Anyways, onto what i want to talk about.
I always wanted to integrate some xbox live stuff into my blog. A friend of mine @Cadab had already created a nice little xbox widget for his blog.
As you can see, he has a nice little widget which sits on his blogs sidebar and grabs the last 5 achievements which then link to a nice page which displays all his games from a database.
So, i wanted to create one for myself. I had all the data i needed already. xBonx was tracking all my gamerscore and achievements already so i could just select from the correct databases and supply my gamertag and boom, id have all the date.
Wordament is a boggle based game for your mobile device.
At current, the only supported platforms for Wordament is Windows Phone (WP), Windows 8 (Win8) and iPhone / iPads (iOS). You sign into the app using your Xbox Live gamertag. The game integrates with Xbox live, using your friends list to add them as ‘frenemies’ so you can see there scores inside the game.
No, I haven’t been secretly building a house before anyone pipes up.
There’s is nothing I like more than catching up on some of my favorite TV Shows. The way they drag you in and get you hooked, then leave you on a huge cliff hanger where you can’t wait to get your not fix of House MD, New Girl, The Walking Dead or Big Bang Theory.
About 6 months ago when I had pretty much rounded up all my TV shows that I had left to watch I found myself quite bored with nothing new coming out until September 12 when the new seasons of most shows restart. Continue reading →
I know i have not blogged in over 2 months and there isn’t really a reason why.
Nothing much has changed, i am now a year older since my last post, and i’m also running #Windows8 on my laptop.
Anyways, as you can probably guess from the title this blog post is going to be about Forza Horizon.
The demo for this has been in the xbox live market place since the 9th of October and then was released in europe on the 26th.
I bought this game yesterday (3rd, Nov) and i already think its amazing. Totally different from any other Forza game i have played before. The fact i can come on, and spend 10 minutes or 2 hours driving around the HUGE map and just exploring or doing the daft race here and there really excites me.
The photo mode, which ill be honest, ive never used on a Forza game before this one is amazing. I can spend ages just trying to find the right shot to snap.
Of course one of the key features of the game is the multiplayer. The fact i can sit with friends and drive around this huge map and have races in between ourselves is brilliant. The more the merrier in my opinion.
Ill leave you with one of my favorite images from the game so far.
