iTunes 10.7 Announced

Apple announced more than just iPhone 5 today, they also revealed the new iTunes. Apple will soon release a completely redesigned media player, a revamped iTines store, and improved iCloud features.

Some of the improvements made to iTunes are minimal, like the ability to sort your music in more intuitive ways. Other changes you'll notice immediately, like the iTunes store. The entire store has been redesigned for Mac, PC, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, so no matter which device you're on, you'll have the same experience.

The iTunes store will also be adding a preview history option. iCloud will store your preview history across devices, making it easier than ever to find what you've already previewed. Other new features to iCloud will allow you to save, and via the iCloud, pick up where you left off on another device.

iTunes 10.7 will be released soon!

Welcome to G4's Knuckle Up, where we bring you a byte-sized view of our five favorite mobile games every week. The phone and tablet space is filled with incredible games that will keep you busy for minutes, hours, or even days -- we'll let you know what we're playing and why we're playing it. Here are our top five games this week:

GAME OF THE WEEK

BASTION

iOS ($4.99)

“Wow.” -- That’s the first word out of our mouths after booting up the iOS port of Bastion on our iPads, and it’s well deserved. If you’re not already familiar with Bastion, it’s the first game from developer Supergiant Games, and it’s been showered in awards and accolades across multiple platforms (XBLA, Steam, Linux, Mac App Store, and even the Chrome Web Store). Now, it’s been brought to the iPad, and it’s just as transcendent.

We don’t want to give too much story away, so we’ll just say this: You’re a kid who’s world is shattered, and you’ll have to work alongside a mysterious stranger to help rebuild it. It’s simple, yet effective, and the interactive dialogue between you and the stranger as “The Kid” progresses through each level is masterful. Oh, and the voiceover for the stranger is downright incredible -- no joke -- and takes Bastion to another level of perfection. He’ll speak reactively as The Kid wanders through the world, offering exhibition and comments that set the mood of the world.

Bastion’s combat system and control schemes have been revamped for the iOS port; they’re very well done, offering a fluid and fun gameplay experience. There are also plenty of upgrades available for different types of weaponry, and any combination of items are viable in combat. Bastion is one of the best games we’ve ever had the pleasure of playing on iOS, so if you’re on the fence about picking it up, we’re telling you to take the leap. You won’t be sorry.

iPhone 5 Pictures Leaked? Apple's New Taller, Slimmer iDevice

Leaked images and video of the iPhone 5 have hit the net. We're not able to confirm whether or not the images are real, but they look pretty authentic. The video, from Chinese tech site Vgooo.com, shows the relative size of the new phone compared to an iPhone 4s, as well as an attempt to boot the new phone, but a warning that the device is not associated with a registered developer account keeps it from starting up.



Apple is holding an event in San Francisco next week on September 12 where they'll announce the iPhone 5 and all of its features. We'll have to wait until then to see how legit this footage is. If it does turn out to be real, what do you think of the look of the skinny iPhone 5?

Apple Tablet Mockup

GAME OF THE WEEK

THE WORLD ENDS WITH YOU: SOLO REMIX

iOS (iPhone Only $17.99, iPad Only $19.99)

Another game making its way to mobile, The World Ends With You: Solo Remix (TWEWY) is the latest in a series of ports from Square-Enix, and it’s fantastically done. When Neku finds himself in Shibuya (an ultra hip sector of Tokyo famous for its fashion and nightlife) without any memory of how he arrived there, he comes to realize he’s been recruited to play the Reaper’s Game... and failure will result in “erasure.”

For those not familiar with TWEWY, there’s a lot going on, mechanics-wise. Pins act as your attacks, and you’ll use them to swipe and tap your way to victory in battles. Neku’s joined early in the game by a perky girl named Shiki who also provides attacks (with a nifty new Sync system that allows you to alternate attacks, build up a meter to 100%, and then unleash screenwide destruction on your foes.

The artwork and soundtrack alone make TWEWY one of the most compelling and deep titles on the App Store, and the gameplay compliments a touch screen perfectly. Some may balk at the price tag, or the iPhone edition’s incompatibility with the iPad (no scaling up allowed), but TWEWY is worth picking one device to play it on, and sticking with it to the end.

The Walking Dead: Episode Three Out Now On PSN And XBLA

Good news, zombie fans: the third episode of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead series, titled Long Road Ahead, is out today and will be available for download on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade (via IGN). You can nab it on PSN for $4.99, or as part of a $19.99 Season Pass, or on XBLA for 400 MS points.

PC/Mac users don't have to wait much longer; the next episode will be released as an update for the $24.99 game starting tomorrow, August 29, 2012. You can get it straight from Telltale's store, or from Steam, Origin, Amazon, GameStop, or GameFly. The iOS version of the game, which lags behind the other platforms by one episode, will also see the release of episode two (Starved for Help) starting tomorrow, $4.99 for the lone episode or $14.99 for the full season.

The World Ends With You Solo Remix Is Out For iOS

The recently discovered timer connected to the Nintendo DS RPG, The World Ends With You, ticked down to zero over the weekend, revealing a new "Solo Remix" version of the game for iOS platforms. The previously rumored mobile version of the game is out right now, for $17.99 on your iPhone and $19.99 on your iPad, via Apple's App Store.

An official website lays out the new features added in The World Ends With You: Solo Remix, with the biggest attractions being Retina Display-friendly HD graphics and a soundtrack highlighted by new songs and remixes. There's quite a bit more too, though much of it will likely only make sense to those who know the game. The question is: are you willing to spend $20 on an iOS app? For reference, that's around the same price that DS versions of the game currently sell at.

Apple iPhone

The verdict in the infringement lawsuit between tech giants Apple and Samsung has been reached. The California jury found that Samsung devices infringed on Apple patents, including multi-touch gestures, scroll, zooming and other navigation features.

The damages: $1,051,855,000.

Samsung's counter-claim that Apple infringed on Samsung's technology were all denied, so no damages will be awarded to Samsung from Apple.

GAME OF THE WEEK

HORN

iOS ($6.99) | Android (Aug 2012)

We’ll be honest, we were a bit nervous when we heard Phosphor Games was announced as a Zynga Partner for Mobile for their newest title, Horn. Fortunately, it seems Zynga hasn’t interfered with the development of the game itself, and is lending its big name to help Phosphor keep themselves near the top of the App Store for a sustained period of time. But let’s get to the game, shall we?

Horn is the story of a boy named... well, Horn. One day, he wakes up to his world completely changed: his town is in ruins, there are some colossus-like beings wandering about, and he has no idea what’s happened. Of course, the best adventures begin thusly, and Horn sets out to make things right and get everything back to normal. The very first thing you’ll notice are the environments. In fact, you’ll keep noticing them; Horn has a visual quality reminiscent of Fable, and you’ll never cease to be amazed at the beauty packed into every detail. Everywhere you look, Horn is lovely. The voice acting is fantastic too, with some talented folks giving life to each entity you come across (Gourd’s is particularly great).

The combat mechanics are solid, with an Infinity Blade-esque feel to them. Unfortunately, the controls can be a bit unwieldy, with a “tap on a spot to move to it” scheme that’s mediocre at best and frustrating at worst, so we’re hoping Phosphor adds in a virtual d-pad to help ease the pain of invisible walls. Overall though, it’s a minor annoyance that tends to fade into the background once you get the hang of it, and it shouldn’t keep anyone interested from picking it up.

World Ends With You Countdown Clock

I hate countdown clocks.They create a sense of hype, excitement and anticipation that too often disappoints when the reveal comes. Like Square Enix's recent The World Ends With You-related timer. When it appeared, people were of course looking forward to the reveal of a sequel to the game. Well sorry. It looks like it's for an iPhone port.

There's nothing wrong with an iPhone port of The World Ends With You. That's a pretty cool idea, actually... but is it a cool enough idea to put a week-long countdown clock? I think not.

The below "leaked" iPhone 5 video from Adam Thinks shows off Apple's new phone. It explains how the iPhone 5 is the perfect device to take pictures of your food, as well as the perfect device to momentarily fool your fake friends into thinking you have a fulfilling inner life and aren't a hopeless shambling husk, waiting with a mixture of fear and resignation until your days in this vale of tears come to a merciful end.
