Since Fuego’s River Adventure became the first hands-free game to be release for the iPad 2 a few months back, a number of motion controlled games have made their way into the App Store. One of the latest is BitGym’s Fit Freeway, a racing game that’s designed to be played while you’re working out on an exercise bike or elliptical.

Soul Calibre, the iconic weapon-based fighter that first released for the arcades and Sega Dreamcast in the late 90′s, will be making its way to iOS on Jan 19th. The port will feature all 19 of the original fighters, and will include arcade battle, time attack, survival, practice and museum modes. While the launch price is currently unknown, Soul Calibre will be a universal app and require an iPhone 4/4S, iPad 2 and iPod Touch 4G to run the visually impressive game. And coinciding with Namco Bandai’s iOS release, Soul Calibre 5 is set to make its Xbox 360 and PS3 debut next month, on Feb 3rd. Check out the official trailer and more screenshots after the break.

RedSn0w, the popular jailbreaking tool has been updated to version 0.9.10b4 and now includes the long awaited fix for iBooks not being able to run on jailbroken iOS 5.0.1 devices.
If you’ve previously jailbroken your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch using redsn0w, all you need to do is re-jailbreak it using 0.9.10b4, but do remember to uncheck the “Install Cydia” option beforehand. Conversely, you can run the latest version of the Corona package (1.0.4) on Cydia in order to use iBooks once again.

Just a few weeks ago, the untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.0.1 was released thanks to the efforts of hacker pod2g. Sadly for iPhone 4S and iPad 2 users, it only supported A4 iDevices (iPhone 4, iPad 1 etc). Well pod2g has posted another video (made by Chronic dev team member Dustin Howett) of a jailbroken iPhone 4S rebooting without having to tether to a computer. While no date has been given of its public release, pod2g did say “Only a few to wait now”. Could mean a few days or maybe even weeks, but at least we now know that the wait shouldn’t be that much longer.

The War Of The Worlds is one of those properties that in my opinion has never really been used to its full potential, except for possibly the radio broadcast that scared a nation in 1938. I must admit that I never would have dreamed of anyone turning the saga into a musical, however, let alone making a mini-game extravaganza out of said musical. Sadly, the concept is much better than the execution and little things like interface inconsistencies and constant crashing make the game not very much fun to play. Boring mini-games don't help either.
