GetJar Gold!

Many of you like me are Android users and you love to download apps but you don't like paying for them. GetJar Gold similar to Amazon's Free App of the Day is a program to get paid apps legally for free! They update GetJar Gold on a weekly basis adding new paid apps to the list. I've gotten so many paid apps for free between GetJar and Amazon that I almost never have to pay for any of my apps. If your like me you should check it out!

Native Client comes to Chrome!

Recently Google had a press release about Native Client (NaCl). Basically the idea behind it is you can run native code (C, C++, or C#) inside of chrome so you don't have to learn a new programming language and can even port existing programs to NaCl. This allows you to install a small extension into Chrome and then play games and use programs that you would other wise need admin privileges to install onto a computer. So far I have played three different games that have been ported to Chrome and can be found in the Chrome Web Store. My favorite so far is call Bastion it's quite an amazing game I highly recommend you check it out. I look forward to when I can install all my games this way it's a lot less hassle for me to do it this way and there is no limit on what an NaCl game can do. There are quite a few major game companies and partners that are working on products for NaCl including Square Enix, Unity Technologies, and Bungie. Anyways I posted some links below!

So many F2P Games! Why not Ultima Online?

So I've had a lot of fun and excitement lately. First they made World of Warcraft free to play till your level 20. Now Everquest II is free to play and I'm like that's awesome I've always wanted to play that but it's so much a month. Last night I was so excited to find that Lineage II one of my favorite games is now free to play as well. There is a new amazing Age of Empires Online also free to play. Than I found out about a new free to play Command and Conquer game. So many free to play games! So my question is why can't Ultima Online switch to the free to play model that would be amazing. Heck I would pay $50 for the game it's self if there wasn't any monthly fees. Ultima Online was the first to do it good and still does it the best except for the dated graphics there really isn't anything you can't do in UO. The game is now 14 years old and you can Build a house, tame a dragon, be a spellweaving ninja pirate, bake a pizza you name it! I hope someday soon I have my wish and I can play UO for free without paying $15 a month that I don't have. I put some links below have fun playing games for FREE!

TripleTown Review

I'm not super big on browser based games or the type of genre Facebook originally seemed to have created. But I found this new game on Google+ it's a very unique little puzzle game I seem to keep going back to when I'm bored. The game is a puzzle game where you randomly get items to place into your little town and when you combined the items you create new plants or buildings in your town. As you play the game you learn how it works and you begin to build up your little town and have it last longer each time. The most dreaded items to get are the bears and ninja bears. Bears can be combined to create churches I found it fun to get as many bears as possible in a confined area and take them out all at once! Ninja bears on the other hand mostly get in the way teleporting around each time you place a new item blocking your way. If you ever get bored and want a unique new game to play I highly recommend this one to kill some time. The only thing I dislike about the game is after a while when you run out of moves you either have to wait a couple days to get more moves or pay actual money to buy them. Have fun building your town!

Increased Traffic :)

This month we had over 700 Views which makes me happy! This next month I want to get over 1,000 views and get more followers on my Google+ Page for the blog. I'm going to make more of an effort to post more often and post things that you guys want to see. Please post any suggestions or ideas to help me out! In the future once I get enough posts my self I plan on getting some more authors (not paid or anything just for fun unless we actually started getting ad money which so far we haven't had any). Also eventually I plan on getting a domain name for the blog next year! Anyways I appreciate everyone that commented and viewed the blog thanks a lot!
