August Releases

August is a slower month than normal for releases but here is what I am looking forward to this month.

Video Games
Coming out of beta on the 8th of the month is LawBreakers releasing on PC and Playstation 4. From the few matches I have played during the beta, it brings an interesting take on first person shooter games, in a genre currently being dominated by Overwatch.
Later on in the month on the 15th, releases Sonic Mania. Sonic Mania will be a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. A week later, released Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. The Uncharted series, is one of the first games I purchased when I started gaming on the Playstation consoles, so I will be continuing the story line with this game.
Normally, I don’t get excited about the new Madden NFL football games but with the introduction of a story mode, I will definitely be taking a spin at that mode to test it out.
At the end of the month on the 29th, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle comes out. Having never played a game in the Rabbids franchise, when I first saw this game at E3 I was definitely intrigued by its concept.

Take a look back at what released in July.

Project Euler

Project Euler is a series of math/programming related challenges. To aid in my programming ability and logical thinking, I have decided to try completing these questions.

By no means, are my solutions the best way to answer the questions. I am just completing them my own way to challenge myself and to work out the solutions the best I can. Later on, I may revisit some of the older problems with a better method in my eyes.

Below is a picture from their site of the up to date number of solved challenges.

Long Game Savings – App Review

Recently I have been trying a variety of different savings applications to see the different types of apps and what their strengths and weaknesses are. Right now the application I am using is called Long Game Savings. According to their website, over half of Americans play the lottery and 40% of Americans have no savings, so they created an application to combine both to help Americans save more money.

The only negative I have currently found is the interest rate compared to other savings account. The rate is only 0.1% interest. But when they combined the concept of being able to win money is intriguing.

There are 2 types of currency with this app, the first being real money that you transfer in from your checking account and the other currency being coins. Currently the app is free to use and you use the coin currency to try to win money. You gain coins by saving money and can win up to a million dollars.

Give it a try and let me know your thoughts.
