While I like Washing Machine’s interface and the ability to focus in the various types of items you may want to investigate for cleaning up, I found the lack of detail about what you might be doing potentially dangerous—you really do not want to delete files you need, nor do you want to make the wrong choice and delete the wrong one of multiple files.
It was probably inevitable that The Walking Dead would start to feel familiar. Season one had some amazing twists, both in terms of unexpected violence and consequences, but in season 2, the fabric is starting to wear. Clem will have to fight zombies in a quick-paced action scene. Someone will make a horrible choice, leaving Clem to deal with the fallout where it’s impossible to make everyone happy. These same scenarios worked brilliantly in season one, so what’s changed?
You’ve all seen the animated GIFs on the various entertainment news sites, right? Those looping animations of bizarre facial reactions or of dancers falling down for our entertainment? They can be quite comical and they can be quite annoying, but either way, they’re now very easy to make with apps such as PicGIF from Pearl Mountain Technology.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified has three new DLC packs that expand upon special agent William Carter and his team’s original mission—to survive, adapt, and overcome the enemy threat. The three DLC packs—Hangar 6 R&D, CodeBreakers and Light Plasma Pistol—cost under $10 total, and the original game is currently $10 off in the Mac App Store.
Shadowrun: Dragonfall—a major expansion for the magic-meets-cyberpunk tactical RPG mashup Shadowrun Returns—has launched for Windows, OS X, and Linux. Featuring a 12+ hour campaign set in the city of Berlin, Shadowrun: Dragonfall also contains a multitude of new features and enhancements for the core Shadowrun Returns game.
Not all Mac games are created equally. There are multiple ways to get a game to the Mac when it was originally released for another platform, and how it is done makes a pretty big difference in how the game performs. To help us understand this, Jon Carr of the GameAgent Blog called class to session in Mac Gaming 101.
If you have a Mac (or a PC, I suppose) and would like to set sail on an epic adventure, look no further than GOG’s weekend promo. They’ve got 21 classic adventure games on sale for 70% off, 12 of which are Mac compatible. In addition, Waking Mars is now available at a special anniversary price of $1.99.
According to Infinite Monkeys Entertainment (I guess they’re still working on their Hamlet game?), the attraction between knights and grails is “… a force of attraction so powerful that valiant champions will gladly impale themselves upon pits of spikes so their brethren may cross, or fling themselves into saw blades to activate switches.” But hey, Life Goes On, right?
Adobe’s Photoshop Elements has been the benchmark application by which consumer (ie: relatively affordable) image editing apps are judged for 18 years. First introduced as Photoshop LE in 1996, Photoshop Elements 12 is still the image editor to have if you’re only having one in the sub-$100 class.
Adobe created a program that—for $9.99 per month (based on a years contract)—provides users with access to Photoshop, Lightroom, Adobe Bridge, 20 GB of Cloud Storage, and a Behance ProSite. This is a truly spectacular deal, but there is a catch; you have to sign up before March 31st. That’s it.
Mariner Software was established in 1990, and I’ve been using at least one of their programs—Mariner Write—for nearly that long. The company is now celebrating its 24th anniversary, and is doing so by offering 50% off its desktop products through their eStore, including Paperless, MacGourmet Deluxe and MacJournal.
FileMaker Pro—the database application that has a user base ranging from individuals through corporations—has released FMPro 13. While there are the expected improvements to the application, this new release provides a whole new level of opportunities. Part of that includes a new release of FileMaker Go for iPhone, iTouch, and iPad to work with the new features of FMPro 13.
