We dont usually post stuff about new games because we just cant keep up and don’t have to play them anyway. But this one deserves a big fat badass WELCOME.
The Secret of Monkey Island has been released in the iTunes store for $8. It is about 400MB so be ready to either doc to sync or find a super fast wifi connection. It is expected that it will work on both the iPod Touch and is confirmed on the iPhone. Apparently the voices have been re-recorded and the graphics updated but you can swipe your finger at any time to get the full retro experience.
You know how you remember something that was so badass back in the day, like a movie for example, then you try to re-experience it today and you wonder what the heck you were thinking? Well so far, that isnt the case with Monkey Island. It is fun all over again.
Not so much badass but just dang hilarious! Apple is being sued by Gregory McKenna of Beverly Hills California. The 124 page complaint is being filed against Apple, F.B.I., St. Louise County Police Department, and an auto mechanic.
McKenna alleges that Apple conspired with the Mafia to implant receivers into his iPods that allowed for the Italian Mafia to send him death threats through the device. One of which was an iPod Shuffle purchased on eBay and the other a iPod Mini purchased at the Apple Store.
The complaint continues to describe how in 2008 a member of the Mafia played the phrase “I’m going to kill him” in unison with a song playing on the iPod Mini. A more threatening message was supposedly played across multiple systems including iPods, an iBook G4, PowerBook G4, and three cars, including his mothers. The message was apparently in some Mafia modified lyrics to “Still Tippin” by Mike Jones, "Tippin’ on four fours, wrapped in four vogues, HERPES. Tippin’ on four fours, wrapped in four vogues. Tippin’ on four fours, wrapped in four vogues, AHH." All the Mafia wanted was for him to model for them!
Sounds to me like a good episode for Laptop Hunters. Buy a PC man!
Now how will this integrate with your iTunes? Probably another paid update… Or you can hack it.
