Today, Tuesday 22nd of July, 2014, the lads behind the long awaited Forza Horizon sequel have released a partial car list!
They sent out a picture that is posted above, and this is only a fraction of it. There still is over 100 different cars that we still have to fall in love with.
The cars that particularly attract me the most, I must say, are quite a few. As some of you may know, I'm a car fanatic, and I especially like the older ones over the new cars.
As some of you may know by now, EA and Maxis have released a new Gameplay video a couple days ago, and it contains one big surprise; though you may not like the kind of surprise the developers have decided to give us. During this walkthrough video, we see a "The Sims 4 Premium" advertisement.
According to a British retailer, the much awaited Next Gen version of the famous Grand Theft Auto 5 game will be released on November 14th, 2014.
As many of you may know by now, Android 5.0 L will be released later this year for the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10.. But what exactly should we expect from this new update?
The lads behind Android did not reveal the Sweet name just yet, nor is the version number official yet, but considering the endless amounts of changes on the famous phone OS, you should expect it to be Android 5.0. And what will the name be? Many voices seem to be pointing at the name Lollipop, considering Google's alphabetical patterns on naming their OS.
This new update will most likely be one of of the biggest in Google's mobile platform since its debut. The new "Material Design" philosophy is drastically changing Android's face for the better. The interface of the lockscreen has been fiddled with as well, now allowing users to interact with notifications. Furthermore, the notifications are prioritized based on the frequency you interact with them!
The notification bar went through a makeover as well. Besides the new color scheme, the notification bar no longer shows a "Quick Settings" button. In order to access the Quick Settings, you now have to pull down once to show the notifications bar, then pull down once more to access the toggles. Here, you'll be able to finde the usual toggles for WiFi, Mobile Network, Bluetooth, Airplane Mode, Do Not Disturb Mode, Sound, Rotation Lock, and Location. You will also be able to control your screen's brightness with a slider. The Auto-Brightness is now gone, and has been replaced by an "Adaptive Brightness" function.
The Settings menu of Android 5.0 L has also recieved a new interface and it now allows the users to search for certain settings within the Settings themselves. The status bar behaves differently in the new Android release: it stays transparent in Home and Lockscreens, but it's also capable of changing color to match the action bar of the running app on the screen.
The multitasking has also been improved upon and it has recieved a new look as well. recent apps are now shown as cards stacked one over another, while apps like chrome can show more than one card. That's not necessarily good news, because if you have multiple tabs opened in Chrome, the multitasking might get over-crowded.
But the real question now is: when can the public get Android L? So far, the Mountain View-based company has released two major updates per year: one in early summer and one in mid-fall. However, Google switched the cards on us this year. They officially previewed Android L at the latest Google I/O, and made the Developer Preview available for Nexus 5 and Nexus 7, most likely followed by the release of the final version sometime this fall, making the company stick to their usual late-October schedule.
As always, the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 will be the first few devices to recieve this new update. Next in line are probably going to be the Google Play Experience smartphones and tablets and, if Motorola sticks to their good habit, so will the Moto X and their next-gen Flagship. HTC officially revealed that they are planning to offer the Android L within 90 days after they recieve the final code from Google. Samsung, LG, and Sony will probably bring the new update on their smartphones late 2014 or early 2015.
Forza Horizon 2 is coming soon, and the news about it are HOT!
Supposedly, this installment of the Horizon series will deliver a *MASSIVE* world that could bring huge improvements to the gameplay new features, and 100 or more HOURS of gameplay!
