Later this month, 2K Games and 2K Marin will be releasing their highly anticipated new XCOM game The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. I recently visited the 2K Marin studios in San Francisco for a closer look at the game.

One thing that intrigued me was that it seemed that 99% of all music videos submitted, seemed to come straight from Jamaica, such is the passion of Ugandans brought up on dancehall music. With full patois accents and dancehall dance moves, it was like judging a Caribbean set of acts, as opposed to African. It reminded me of the early UK urban music scene.

Mario & Luigi Dream Team Bros. walks the tightrope between core and family gamers with finely tuned game-play and accessible controls. Although, as the family testing the game suggested, the amount of reading rules out pre-school gamers (even with its PEGI 3 rating), other family members will enjoy the story and progression.
The sun is shining, and the weather is sweet. A wise man once noted how it made him want to move his dancing feet- so we've taken it upon ourselves to put together a bunch of brilliant new artists for you to have a summery groove to this week.
Push alerts are an essential tool for many news organizations to keep readers using their mobile apps regularly. There's a huge opportunity to use push alerts on the desktop too, and incoming updates from Apple and Google will make these notifications even more powerful.
When it comes to genre-bending music and the all-round experience of a musical rollercoaster, no album is truer to sticking to this notion than Fires In The Park by Benin City.
