Mobbler and Mobiles in mind

A while ago a wrote briefly in a post that I had acquired a new phone, the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. I’m still using it and it’s still a good phone. I can watch films, listen to music, play games and of course I get access to the Ovi Store. At first Ovi really got hammered by the press, specifically over obvious comparisons with the iPhone and it’s store. To be honest, yes, the first few apps to appear where few and far between and not necessarily all that good. With a chance to find it’s feet though,  I feel they’re now catching up and more importantly you don’t have to pay for all of them! Over the next few months I will be posting about some of the most useful apps I’ve found and prove you don’t have to spend money to gain new functionality – nor do you need anything with a fruit for a logo…

So, to start these posts off I will begin with Mobbler: a scrobbling application for your nokia phone which also functions as an internet radio using the great free service from last.fm.

BB Legendary Edition: Eleven days to go, days to go, days to go…

In under a week now the highly anticipated Blood Bowl Legendary edition is released – I cannot wait! Having spent the last year brutalising a variety of fantasy creatures in the most chaotic and fun version of American Football I have ever played, not only do I want more teams to choose from I want more options for causing havoc. BB LE promises all that and more and I hope to sacred Nuffle they deliver.

What’s prompted me especially to post about this is that all BB players of the current game get a 30% discount off the price of the digital edition. Nothing to be sniffed at and a pleasant bonus for all the hard work I’ve put in this year playing the game!

With eleven new teams and more work on sharpening up the old ones; a larger bank of inanities for the commentators to spout mid-match (I hope!) as well as more rules and tweaks to spice up the game I really can’t wait to hit the astrogranite. Check out the latest HD trailer to wet your appetite.
