Ohio Marching Band !

Ahhhh the good memories of life in America, I remember how much I enjoyed attending American Football games during my uni. days, even though Ohio State was the arch rival of my university I have to say I was extremely impressed with their marching band routine.

Also I had friends in the marching band so I know how much time commitment and hard work had to go on this routine just seeing it was impressive.

Tara’s Favorite App!

20120417-145502.jpg

I love singing songs to Tara and one of our favorite nursery songs is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. I found the cutest video on YouTube for the song with a baby owl and a star! She loves the video and interacts with it a lot. A few days ago I found out the makers of the video, Super Simple Learning, had an IPhone App so I immediately installed it.

The App includes the Music Video with the choice of an adult or a child’s voice ( I personally LOVE the child’s voice! Specially when he says li’lil star!!)
There’s also a story inspired by the song. You could either let the pre recorded voice read it, you could read it to your baby or, which I got so excited about, you could record your voice!! Perfect for busy mummies that want to read to their babies but don’t have the time (god bless you if your that type of mum! You are a superhero)

If you touch the characters in the story they move and make sounds! Great to teach babies how to interact.
The animation is wonderful and in high resolution and the voices chosen are excellent.

For older babies there is a counting stars game to help teach them about numbers. Tara now just likes touching them and smiles at the sounds they make :p

If you get a chance to download it let us know what you think.
This is the link to the App TwinkleTwinkle

God Bless the children of the world.

Halo 4 Trailer: E3 2011

It was to the shock and excitement of the crowd of the E3 Microsoft conference when Microsoft announced Halo 4. While many people who were following the hype before E3, knew that there was going to be a new Halo announced, it was common knowledge that this was going to be Halo HD Combat Evolved, or Halo Anniversary Edition. And while, this too was announced, Microsoft released another trailer, Halo 4.

The trailer below shows all that has been released to date on Halo 4. All we know is that it is not longer going to be developed by Bungie, but 343 Industries instead (which could be a huge disappointment to any HALO fan).

While the E3 Halo 4 trailer is short, it does tell us one thing, that the new trilogy of follow up games, will begin where Halo 3 left, and to the excitement of all Halo fans, will put the player back in the seat of Master Chief, the last remaining Spartan Super Soldiar.

While the latest Halo Game was released less that one year ago, this will be the first Halo game that has followed the story line of Master Chief since 2007, with most people believing that Halo would not re-visit him in any further games.

Halo is probably the best first person shooting out there in my view so I can’t wait for this one to be honest, was a bit disappointed to know that Bungie will no longer be doing this so let us see how it goes.

Tomb Raider Phenomenal Trailer!

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have revealed the “Turning Point” trailer for the upcoming Tomb Raider video game. The trailer says the game will be available in fall 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
Square Enix are one of the top gaming companies so I am pretty certain this game will be unmissable, especially the number of fans this game have racked in over the years. Check it out:

Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold.
