Tizen is the OS that Samsung and Intel have been working in recent months. Based on the code of MeeGo, Tizen is the big bet of Samsung to launch competitive smart mobile without relying on developers like Google or Microsoft.

 

Samsung has managed to become the leading manufacturer in the market of smartphones around the world. The company has seen several of its Android phones became the most popular in the world and its progression has been spectacular.

 

However, since Google bought the manufacturer Motorola, analysts and experts stressed that Samsung took precautions and develop its own system.

 

The South Korean company tried his luck with Bada, its own system, but does not seem to have had the desired success. For this reason, Samsung has partnered with Intel to take advantage of the work done with Meego – at its fruit of the Alliance of the manufacturer of processors with Nokia – and thus develop Tizen, an advanced system that can compete with the market leaders.

 

In this way, Tizen is destined to be an alternative to Android, iOS and Windows Phone. After months of work, the development of Tizen seems to be very advanced and the company already confirm that the first mobile will arrive this year.

 

According to Bloomberg, Samsung official sources have confirmed that the first Tizen sold this 2013. At the moment there is no data on devices, specifications or distribution plans. However, the fact that has been confirmed that the first Tizen are close invites to think that Samsung will present developed handsets at the Mobile World Congress. The fair of Barcelona could be the starting point of the Tizen catalogue, which will try to gain a foothold in the thriving market for ‘smartphones’.

Total War: Rome II

An immense strategic Empire
Total War seal again approaching the ancient Rome to offer us his vision of the Empire. Do achieved its highly anticipated sequel live up to the one of the benchmarks of the strategy in the 21st century? The challenge was difficult, and perhaps not reached its brutal level of excellence, but Creative Assembly has been able to Jell an extraordinary game that ranks among the great RTS of the year.
Creative Assembly is one of the most respected studies of the world of video games, something that transcends and goes far beyond the particular genre that have become famous. To open a hole in the Olympus of the developers need to stop seal, and the British team achieved growing strategy of an amazing quality video games since the launch of the first Total War there by the distant year 2000. The best of this extensive success story? Probably there will be few people who differ in that is the third: the original Rome. With that one, the study was able to settle the bases of the series for the future in a way that is so short that he has allowed him to live since then, almost 10 years later, with a franchise that just has incorporated some elements with Bill drops on a general picture that has almost no observed changes.
Growing franchise team has dealt with different eras of the most disparate, have added much color to giant fresco of the historic wars of humanity who have been dealing with, but also played some second parts such as Medieval or Shogun, fueling the hopes of fans to regain the glorious Roman Empire for the brand. In the summer of 2012 the big news was made official, and since then the last few months have been an undeniable career go knowing news and count the days for the sale of awaited return implementation. The impressive and decadent yoke of his legions, and the fascinating Europe and North Africa at the time fit as ring finger with the gaming experience Total War.
Total War: Rome II
With the final game already in our hands the sensations are as positive as expected, although it is also true that we expected more news. The continuous slope of Shogun II made sense from the corporate point of view by the releases of annual character of the series, but between him and Rome II there are two years of time: more leeway to bet on “signings” playable in nature. Aside from some conservative component, which obviously does not make the game less fun, we talk about a more direct than its predecessors title, one that offers less intermediate steps in the strategic part in shaping our troops or to manage our land, and that encourages us to more quickly reach the part that really wallows: the battles. This second raid of the saga in ancient Rome is, as the reader will have already deduced, less revolutionary than the original, but still among the releases of impressive quality that us has been providing the strategy genre in recent times.

This is only the beginning of a franchise that collectors will go crazy.

For a time it gave the sense that Disney would abandon the creation of video games that were not typical for children based on their films, when he began to dismiss people from Disney Interactive, closed Junction Point (the study of Warren Spector, who apparently did not get the sales targets and popularize the figure of Oswald rabbit) and especially after ordering the closure of the LucasArts video games division.

The news coming from a possible game competition of Skylanders left no clear if he was a toast to the Sun, or a last attempt of the company in the interactive entertainment. But Disney does not stitch without thread and if something knows to handle the marketing. Now we have seen that what happened is that the company was focusing their efforts on a large interactive project.
Disney Infinity has a huge sales potential; Drag the child audience with stories of the characters, collectors and aficionados to Princesses and worlds with the figures used by the game, and players in general with the incentive of creativity. The Wall Street Journal has published that the company has invested 100 million dollars in the franchise (Disney has already said that it intends to launch an Infinity per year,) which shows how hard you opted for it.
It is an excellent premise that takes ideas seen in other games and the power even with all the strength of the Disney universe, although there are some seams that need a better shot to bring it to reality and is necessary to make tweaks to make it a totally rewarding experience.
