Drive various Trains and Travel from one Place to Another

By Daren Garius

On Friday, August 22, 2014

It is safe to say that Train Simulator 2014 is one of the best simulations in its franchise or maybe in its category. I find its graphics very realistic as well as the sound of the train engine. Plus, the scenery is just beautiful. If you are a newbie to this game, no need to worry. The game provides a tutorial at the beginning that will help you learn and understand and the different aspects of this driving game. Also, I find its interface simple and straightforward. In addition, there are lots of different trains that you can choose. Moreover, I like that they enhanced the Career mode. It is more challenging and you can also pick extended scenarios. On the other hand, I think the only flaw of this game is that there are only three routes available. Nonetheless, this game is very entertaining and exciting especially for train enthusiasts. All in all, Train Simulator 2014 is a remarkable simulation game that provides a realistic and exhilarating gaming experience.

Pros

  • It has a realistic gameplay
  • Lot of trains to choose from

Cons

  • Only three routes are available

REVIEW

This is an software that I have used since vi think I was like in grade 10 though it was kept on being upgraded and now this is the latest version which is version 12 and all that it is formed to do is to burn music files but now the only limitation is that the music must be in mp3 format and also the software can also be used to view movies and also videos that is if a user has inserted a disk on the dvd rom in the computer so as to watch it so you can use the windows media player or also the vlc media player.

FEATURES

The features of this include

Used for burning up music in its mp3 form

The interface is quite flexible and also very easy to use

No graphics are there

There is a menu tool for users to get to use it easily

CONCLUSION

I think so far so good they should only upgrade the interface

Pros

  • The software is very simple to use
  • One can also burn music

Cons

  • the interface is very outdated

Play your songs and videos through streaming from your car to your home through media player application

By Beatrice Tan

On Friday, August 22, 2014

How can you resist using a built in media player application tool with lots of skins and supports tons of file formats? Because of my busy day schedule work schedule and my graduate studies at night, I find it difficult to look for media player application that is open source and versatile with other platforms and supports multi formats.

I tried using this built in media player application with my Windows Operating System which allows me to open MP3s, MP4s, and Flip Videos. Next amazing feature of this tool is the remote media streaming which allows me to play MP3s and MP4 streams at my desktop computers or mobile devices from other location like audio player inside the car. Another fascinating features are the smarter DVD playback, Jump Lists and song previews for 15 seconds.

The bottom line is that this media player application has evolved through time. It has now new features that you will surely enjoy like what I did. I am a real fan of this remote media streaming and smarter DVD playback. I will definitely continue to explore this tool to maximize its features.

Pros

  • An extensible and rock-solid application
  • It has great psycho acoustic effects

Cons

  • It has weak playback control on some file types
  • It does not handle photos
