Centralized software purchasing is a hot topic these days. It all began with the iOS App Store. About six months ago, Apple announced that it was going to launch an App Store for desktop computers, following in the footsteps of Ubuntu's Software Center. Leaked screenshots from Windows 8 show that Microsoft is working on an app store too.
Remember a few weeks ago when we told you about the six independent iPhone game developers that were teaming up to raise money for charity ? They each put their games on sale, dropped the price down to the sweet $0.99 price tag, and pledged to give 1/3rd of their of their sales (after Apple's cut) t [...]
Earlier this year we wrote up a review of Solipskier on the iPhone and iPad, and followed that up with some detailed sales stats the developers provided.
We don't write about iPhone games on the site too often, but this one hits a bit closer to home than most others in the App Store. This one was put together by a very talented group of game developers I know, and they've come up with something that's both fun and addicting.
Good educational games for kids can be hard to come by, and finding ones that are targeted towards a specific age group are even more rare. The website CyberKidzGames.com, however, does just that. All of their online games are broken down by ages ranging from 4 to 11, and from there they are all categorized.
Have a few minutes to spare for a quick online game? OMGPOP has over ten different multiplayer games (and counting) that have one thing in common: they're excellent at getting your productivity down a notch! And thanks to the site's obligatory social networking features, it's really easy to challenge your friends to a Bomberman game over the internet.
This is by no means "news," just an interesting topic of conversation sent in as a tip. Some of you may know a few Guitar Hero addicts or maybe you are one yourself, but do you think it's a little excessive if a high school student drops-out so that he can concentrate more on the game?
The OpenOffice.org team makes a great productivity suite, but the developers behind the famed open source project have also tucked away a few enjoyable Easter Eggs. Several of them are your typical run-of-the-mill Easter Eggs that show the credits, but one in particular is a lot of fun.
Last week rumors started to fly that Microsoft was planning to drop the price of the Xbox 360 pretty significantly. We questioned it because in July, Microsoft already did some price dropping with their 20GB Xbox 360 - dropping it from $350 down to $300.
Scrabble is one of those classic board games that many of you have probably played at one point or another. I remember multiple occasions playing the game growing up and always being frustrated when I got the letters Q and Z. Times have changed and not everybody is interested in sitting down to play an "old-fashioned" game board.
In just two days on Wednesday May 21st, the highly anticipated Wii Fit, an exercise game for Nintendo's Wii will launch in the U.S. Looking over the ads that came in Sunday's newspaper, you can just tell that this is going to be a big title for Nintendo. Best Buy dedicated the whole back page of their ad to the game which will be sold with the Balance Board peripheral for $89.99.
It's once again Friday, so we decided to have some fun. What better way than to take a break and play a game or two? One of our readers, Radu (thanks Radu!) recently sent us a tip to checkout www.friv.com which has over 200 games available for your enjoyment.
Geeks are sometimes given the stereotype as being big spenders on gadgetry, from computers to video game systems. You, yourself, may be a spender. While some do always have to have the latest and greatest of anything electronic, not all geeks are frequently forking out the cash.
It's hard to imagine life without a computer, isn't it? We use computers for so many things these days, and most of us have our computers running 7 days a week, and nearly 365 days a year. What would happen if you turned off your computer for a whole day? Would you be able to survive for 24 hours without going through withdrawal? Let's find out!
It's pretty crazy the things geeks can come up with when they get an idea. A group of undergraduate students over at Texas A&M have obviously been playing too much Guitar Hero, and decided that they could make a robot to conquer the game for them. After much thought they have named their dubious creation Slashbot.
Here at CyberNet we love playing ourselves a good game of Lemmings. I'm sure most of you already know about the web-based version which includes many of the original levels. If you've finished all of those before then maybe it is time to move onto something bigger and better... Lemmins (download mirror)!
If you're bored and looking for something to do that will keep your brain active, look no further than USAToday.com! We're not talking about keeping your brain active by reading the paper, we're talking about having fun while completing puzzles. Most newspapers include a crossword puzzle and a Sudoku puzzle, however USA Today has a few others that they publish daily.
I really believe that the Xbox 360 is such a strong gaming system because of the community that is built around the Xbox LIVE service. It gives you the opportunity to play games online with or against millions of other people. But understandably people have found ways to circumvent the system to collect an unreasonable number of achievements.
