I like playing good video games. I like them even more when they’re free. I recently stumbled across the Free Bundle it is a site that offers free indie video games. Most of the games are for Windows, but a few indie developers offer a Mac or Linux version. Who knows the developers maybe interested in making a Mac or Linux version if there is enough of a demand. The current bundle is listed for a certain amount of time but not to worry the site has links to old bundles. The download links are still active for games in the old bundles. Check out the games and support indie developers. The team at the Free Bundle welcomes suggestions if you know about a great game to be added to future bundles drop them a line.
Wakfu is a French strategic MMORPG/cartoon/comic book/manga worldwide multimedia experience and brand by Ankama Games. The cartoon, comics, and manga are in French, but the art speaks the universal language of color, beauty, and creativity. The art style for Wakfu and its predecessor Dofus is original and vivid. Here are 10 great examples of Wakfu art by several artists that have worked for Ankama: Continue reading
The Old Republic Cinematic Trailer
Finally a trailer with the force behind it. This trailer was made with the Star Wars fanboy/fangirl in mind as well as the video game geek. Video game geeks and sci fi geeks don’t always run in the same circles, but The Old Republic Cinematic Trailer appeals to both fractions. It also appeals to anyone that enjoyed the Star Wars series. There is a little something for everyone in this trailer. Continue reading
Far Cry 2– “Money, Diamonds, and Blood”
This is the coolest video game trailer of the Far Cry game series in my opinion. Warning I am a little bias. I enjoy movie openings in this format, so I enjoyed the trailer. Many first person shooter game trailers emphasis one thing, shooting. The trailer is all about the kill, but leaves out the characters. In some cases that is understandable because the plot (if there is a plot) is not important or is weak. However, the plot of Far Cry 2 is a good plot and the characters are interesting. The trailer is a great introduction to the game, characters, and scenery. This is another game trailer that left me wanting to see this game as a movie. The Far Cry series has some great trailers but Far Cry 2’s Money, Diamonds, and Blood trailer has the best lines of the series in my opinion. I love this line: “We take three forms of payment money, diamonds, or blood.” I am still waiting for the opportunity to use it in a conversation.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl
If you are a Nintendo fan then you have to like the Super Smash Bros. series. It’s Nintendo’s largest crossover game series. You get to play and battle legendary characters like Mario, Link, Samus, and Donkey Kong in the same game. The trailer for Super Smash Bros. Brawl was chosen because of the awesome introduction of the newcomers. One newcomer in particular brought the game to a new level. I am not talking about Zero Suit Samus, but she is awesome. Sonic is great but he’d lose to this character in a coolness contest. Wario doesn’t stand a chance he’s too full of hot air. The character I am talking about covered Super Smash Bros. Brawl in pure awesome sauce just with his presence. Watch the trailer and you’ll see what I mean. Continue reading
