FIFA 13 For iOS Review

As we know that the continuation of the FIFA series from EA Sport for iOS has been released last week. If you’ve played FIFA 12 previously, you would have been familiar with this game and already know how exciting this game. But I think both who have played the previous version and that has never been tried at all, obliged to have FIFA 13 For iOS because the sequel is equipped with new features that will make the gameplay more exciting and lead to addiction. What are the new features? When I see a game on the App Store, which I first spotlight is a screenshot, and then whether the games are universal or not(for iPhone & iPad), the name of the last game developers and game size itself. The difference is visible from the four categories that I mentioned just now between FIFA 12 and FIFA 13 for iOS. First, this latest sequel was made for both iPhone and iPad. Meanwhile, the second difference is that the total size game swelled to 1.35 GB. This size would bigger among other mobile games. In this review, I will not focus on how to play the game but will more specifically discuss what the differences are provided in FIFA 13 for iOS. If you’ve never played this game, do not worry because it provided a very comprehensive tutorial and can...

Nintendo 3DS XL Review

The Nintendo 3DS XL is on its way, in not even a year and a half after the Nintendo 3DS made its debut. Nintendo 3DS XL with larger screens and a similar resemblance to the Wii U gamepad thanks to redesigned menu buttons and curved corners. The advantage is such that the 3DS XL’s smaller lower screen is now bigger in size than the original 3DS’s larger upper screen. Nintendo says that it offers 90 percent more screen real estate overall. The new upper screen measures 10.6cm wide and the lower 8.4cm wide, each with a 6.3cm height (4.1in, 3.3in x 2.4in) as opposed to the original’s 7.7cm and 6.1cm by 4.6cm (3.0in, 2.4in x 1.8in). And also, there’s to be an improvement in battery life, with Nintendo proclaiming 3.5 to 6.5 hours’ worth of Nintendo 3DS XL game time, an improvement about 30 to 90 minutes. To accomodate the larger screen size, the  3DS XL necessarily gains a little weight, width and height. At 15.6cm x 9.3cm and 336g, it will be both taller and heavier than Sony’s rival PlayStation Vita, although not yet as wide. For the Price, the XL will go for ¥18,900 in Japan and $199 in the United States, with European retailers given more leeway to set a selling point. Though less than the Vita, it’s a touch more than the old 3DS, whose...
