Steam for Mac is Released; Portal is Free!

May 12, 2010

No offense Valve, but I think everyone who wants portal... probably has it.

The cake is a lie.

I’m sorry, I had to. Now, to business.

In celebration of the release of Steam for Mac, Portal is being made available for FREE to everyone using steam, wether they are using a PC or a Mac. This is probably to build interest in the game before the release of the sequel, which Valve is putting a lot of money behind.


Steam for Mac is Coming… Tomorrow!

May 11, 2010

That’s right ladies and gents, the day we’ve all been waiting for. Valve is releasing the Mac version of Steam tomorrow, along with launch titles such as Portal and Torchlight. Every Wednesday after that, new games will be released for Mac. Portal 2 will be the first time Valve releases a game for PC, Mac, and XBox 360 simultaneously. After that, every game Valve develops will launch on these three platforms at the same time, so Mac gamers will be playing a new Valve game on the same day that PC gamers do!

Friends, this action by Valve will single-handedly overturn the misconception that “Macs don’t play games.” PC gamers win: they can switch to Mac. Mac gamers win: we get more games. Linux users lose. Everybody wins!


Google Chrome OS: Concerns and Answers

July 9, 2009

Google Chrome OSAlright, I thought I was gonna dump this blog out of loss of interest, but after Google announced their own operating system for netbooks, I had to chime in.

The first thing that I want to point out is that now is not the time for people to be freaking out on either side of the spectrum. I’m all for getting excited, but this product is still a year away at least, and until we actually see a release candidate, there’s no way to know what the specific strengths and weaknesses this OS will have.

With that in mind, I’ve been hearing different concerns regarding wether Google Chrome OS will be a viable alternative to Windows 7 or not, and I’d like to respond to each in turn.

Make Money and Get Free Stuff

March 2, 2009

This really is pretty cool. Hopefully you have been familiar enough with my site up until now to know that I’m not BS’ing here. I found an awesome site that will let you make money and get free gaming/computer stuff at the same time in exchange for mindless clicking. Here’s how it works:

  1. Advertisers make ads with forms to fill out.
  2. Filling out the forms gives the referrer money.
  3. This site refers you to the ads.
  4. They get money.
  5. They buy you free stuff with it.

The awesome thing is this: the site knows that the advertisers are all scumbags, so they give you tips on filling out the forms. If you get a form filler you can fill out about 30 forms per hour or so. Each one gets you a certain number of points, which you then use to get games, consoles, computer equipment, cell phones, and more.

On top of all that, you also can get money, and here’s how: you get a referral link that you can give to your friends, and if they sign up, you automatically get 20% of whatever they get each time they fill out an offer, but in actual cash. It doesn’t subtract from what they get (they won’t even know it is happening), it just means you get free cash automatically. Get some really active friends on there and you can get tons of $$$!

Anyway, it is a good idea to use a referral link to sign up, because then people can benefit even more from this, and hopefully someone will return the favor and use your link when they sign up. With that in mind, take a look at the site and if you decide that getting free stuff isn’t so bad then totally sign up.

P.S. I will leave comments unmoderated on this post so you can all see the feedback (that way you know I’m not scamming you or anything).
