The iPhone 5″

leave a comment »

Nothing is more frustrating than healing on an iPhone. People with dainty fingers might be alright, but even my normal sized digits have trouble with the spell bar. The compact screen makes seeing the environment more difficult as well. There is simply less space between moving objects on the screen, so things tend to blend together more than they do on an iPad.

I thought that the iPad Mini would be fantastic for Order and Chaos. Sadly it doesn’t have a retina screen and it has an underpowered processor. Version two may be a much better option. Having not played O&C on a Mini, I may be way off here but I’m not about to drop $320 on one to test it out.

So with iPhones moving to a biannual release cycle, tech analysts have been speculating about what Apples new device will be. Marco Arment, creator of Instapaper and a smart guy when it comes to UI design, wrote about what he calls the iPhone Plus, a prediction about the next iteration of the iPhone but with a 5″ screen to (almost) match the Galaxy Note. The basis behind his prediction is simple, really:

There’s significant demand for larger-screened phones. As much as we make fun of the Galaxy Note, it sells surprisingly well, especially outside of the United States. Other large Android phones sell very well almost everywhere.

So what would it look like?

I would happily upgrade to a larger phone. It would be a worthy iPhone and iPad replacement and it would compliment my MacBook Air nicely. A larger screen may be more vulnerable and it wouldn’t fit in my jeans pocket very well, but I’ll be careful and I’m considering storing it somewhere else anyway.

This could be excellent news for iOS gamers.

Random Happenings in Awesome’s World of Haradon

leave a comment »

So I finally reached day 7 on Col.Awesome. The previous day was an [Essence of Eristar], so I was super stoked to see what day 7 would be. I mean, you know, they show you what it is, but I didn’t put two and two together that the duck was my actually prize. I thought that it was a placeholder. Sadly I was mistaken– I didn’t even get the [Duck Mask] but a 72-hour rental, [Duck Mask (Limited Time)]. Jokes on me.

Temp Duck Head

Gift for Day 7 — A 72-hour duck head. I am not 12; therefore, I was not impressed.

So after running RKL the other day, I took a stab at GSL with fellow guild mates Rolph, Drake.Raptor, and ^KALONJI^ (not even going to try to type that out, even being the UTF-8 ninja that I am). We dominated, probably thanks to Gameloft nerfing the $%!T out of it. Actually, both scorpions hit me as the spiney dude, Titehelm, died and I perished. I have no idea what the drop was. Anyway, after dominating Kha-Anata like Mike Tyson vs. Peter McNeeley, I consumed a cookie and morphed into the ghost of Anata. I snapped a screenshot on my lucky iPad and I shall share it with you:

Being Kha-Anata

After destroying Kha-Anata, I morphed into him out of respect and heckled my teammates. They didn’t really care.

I did two rounds of PVP at lunch with a friendly ranger named SkyRider! He did very well the first round and I died within 20 seconds. Second round was much better for me, racking up ~20k in damage. Thank you [Sunsaya Crossbow] (btw just noticed that one of my best Sunsaya pics is up on oac-head.com in the media section on the right. ZOMG I’m famous! 😉 ).

Domination Station

PVP went well on my second round in five months.

Next up: SPL. No pics sadly since I am a dumbass and forgot to take screenshots.

Heeeeeey yooooooouuuuuuuuu guuuyyyyyyyyyyyyys!

Aaaah yeeeeeeeeeeeeeah– OaCPlayer is back, baby! Actually I’ve been back for a week. All these new-to-me changes are crazy awesome, guys. I mean my sin build will surely benefit from my day 6 prize!

Essence of Eristar on Day 6

Anyway I’m excited to be back. I’m hoping to get some quality game time in over the next few weeks. I’m still on AF– Col.Awesome, Mage.Awesome, and Doc.Awesome– and I need to relearn every dungeon from RKL and up. Four months is a long time, but I’m hoping that it’s like riding a bike.

See you online.
