  1. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/brutal-legend?hmb_source=brutallegend_freegame&hmb_medium=banner Can't ever go wrong with a free game and BRÜTAL LEGEND has gotten positive reviews since its release back in 2009. But it's not going to be free for long. Current time is at little more than a day and 20 hours.
  2. Steamworld Dig is Origin's current On the House game: https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/steamworld/steamworld-dig/standard-edition Can't beat free, especially for a game like that. I mean, it would be better if it wasn't Origin, but it's still better than Uplay, so I guess there's that.
  3. We've had a thread for the other games, so why not this one? This month's free game for Ubisoft's 30th anniversary is Rayman Origins. You can grab it at the same link as the other games: https://club.ubi.com/#!/en-US/ubi30 This is pretty notable since it's a great game and a bit more recent than the previous two freebies. Of course it's also been in the $1 tier of a Humble Bundle or two, but still. If you somehow haven't played it or just need an excuse to play it again, add it to your Uplay account for free!
  4. It's a safe bet to say that even if you haven't played the popular party game, Cards Against Humanity, that you have at least heard of it. While a fun game to play with family and friends, those who might not have warm bodies to hang out with in the comfort of their own home have to miss out on the fun. Thanks to Cards Against Humanity being licensed under a Common Creative license, the ability to bring the game to PCs and mobile devices is possible. In fact, this weekend will see the launch of Cards Against Originality. Cards Against Originality is a web app that contains all the cards currently available in the Cards Against Humanity game. To play, all you need to do is visit the website and set up a game. Once set up, you will be given an URL link that you can message to your friends online. Cards Against Originality might not be the official app but in a day where toting around a full set of Cards Against Humanity cards or finding enough local people to play with, it definitely looks to give everyone a shot to show just how awful their card choices can be.

  5. On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me... a Steam Holiday Sale! And from then on, gamers everywhere have found themselves buying games that are simply too cheap to ignore. What about console gamers? Oh, there are deals across the PSN and XBLA marketplaces too! Case in point, Telltale Games is offering up The Wolf Among Us: Episode 1 for free. Yep, they did this before with The Walking Dead too! Right now there is only one episode of this series out which makes this a perfect time to get started. Doubly so if you're lucky enough to have a break from school, work, or other predicaments right now. Give it a look and see if playing the first episode makes you end up buying the entire series! Also, be sure to check out our review of the first episode right here.
  6. Whew! The Thanksgiving holiday is over, and with that our wallets have been emptied out from the plethora of sales Black Friday has brought it. Thankfully, these music artists aren't charging for their gift of music this month; quite a relief, considering there might not be any money for us left to give! These eleven albums this month will sate your hunger for a variety of types of game music, and of course they're all available at the click of the mouse. Go ahead and indulge in these sweet musical desserts! halc's NOSTALGIA canon: a video game music tribute Yes, this is in fact a tribute to video game music! halc is an artist well known for his "9bit" style, in which chiptune tracks are recorded in an emulator as opposed to the original hardware, allowing for additional effects not normally possible, and applies it to many old video game tracks. This nine track album features both tunes you'll instantly recognize and even a few you may not, and the unusual style alone is worth the download. Sample Tracks: halc stopped posting on his YouTube page, so go to Bandcamp. Download here Music from Dreaming Sarah Dreaming Sarah is an adventure game about a girl in a deep coma that's trying to wake up. It's actually not out yet; it won't be released until 2014, but there's a demo up that can give you an idea of what to expect from the game. This soundtrack has released early, though, and offers sixteen mellow tracks that fit the ambiance of a dream world quite nicely. Sample Tracks: The Violet Sky, Slow Motion Download here Mega Man XXV: The First This month, Shiryu honors Mega Man's 25th anniversary with a remix of the tracks from the first NES game. Most of the twelve tracks have a distinctly 'techno' feel to them, though they stick pretty close to the original Mega Man tracks. It's also a relatively short album, which makes it ideal for rounding out playlists. This is also supposedly the first in a series of Mega Man EPs from Shiryu, so keep your eyes peeled for more! Sample Tracks: Download here Damned Damned is a multiplayer horror game in which you and three other people are stuck in a hotel, and you have to try to find your way out while being haunted and chased by a gruesome monster. If that description doesn't sum it up, the original soundtrack is full of eerie, tense tracks. If horror soundtracks interest you, then the Damned OST will not be damned on your playlist. Sample Tracks: , Download here Sonic CD: Temporal Duality OCRemix's offering this month is actually a hefty compilation of remixes from Sonic CD. This underplayed Sonic iteration was known for its wonderful soundtrack (and also having different tracks for the Japanese/European and American versions), and this album does the soundtrack justice. This remix album spans four discs and contains forty-three high-quality tracks, so it's certainly worth the download. Sample Tracks: , Download here Bokida: Original Soundtrack from the Game There are a lot of indie soundtracks this month! Bokida is a bit of an odd game: You can make blocks and essentially make them tumble, but you can also explore the world and see what the game has to offer in its minimalistic direction. This game's OST is a little short at seven tracks, but they fit in with the unusual world of Bokida perfectly. Sample Tracks: Check the bandcamp page. Download here Lumen OST Lumen is another game about a girl trying to wake up, but this is simply from her dreams. This platformer-puzzler involves using a camera to your advantage in this strange dream world. The OST allow sounds very dreamlike and mellow, and this eight track album might suddenly sneak its way into your playlist. Sample Tracks: Check Bandcamp for this one, too. Download here SNES Generation This is certainly a unique album. You'd think that SNES Generation is a tribute to the 16-bit console and its games, but instead Alex Roe remixes tracks from modern games with their 16-bit 'counterparts' to make an interesting and well working mash-up of old and new. It's not just a 16-bit remix of the modern tracks, either, because the original soundsets from the 16-bit games are used, not just their hardware. If it sounds odd, it is, but it's done surprisingly well. Make sure to give the sample tracks a listen! Sample Tracks: , Download here Mega Man Remade Shiryu wasn't the only one celebrating Mega Man's 25th birthday with a remix album, as RushJet1 brings us another remix of the original game's tracks. This particular remix is chiptune-based, meaning it expands a good deal on the original tracks while still keeping in the same spirit. This twenty-four track album is pretty much a must have for chiptune fans... and the sample tracks are even playthroughs of the game with the remixed music in the background! That's pretty neat. Sample Tracks: , Download here POKEP POKEP is an odd thing. This eight track album remixes various Pokemon tracks from various titles, but it was originally just one track by Grimecraft alone. POKEP has since turned into a mixtape of sorts with various artists, and more or less turned into an album of its own. Sample Tracks: , Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! Time's End: Majora's Mask Remixed Thanks a bunch to Ciel for pointing out this album last month! In December of 2012, Theophany brought out Time's End, a remix album of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Thing is, this is more than just a simple album filled with conservatively remixed tracks; every one of this album's ten tracks is lovingly and fantastically remixed to a melancholy and epic high. There should be no reason to not download this fantastic album. Sample Tracks: Download here That's all the free albums for this month! Who knows whether musicians will be even more generous in the holiday month of December, or if they'll be too busy with family to compose some new music... we shall see! Which album is your favorite? Any free album recommendations? Let me know in the comments below!

Button 3) Redeem code through Steam to download the preview! 4) Play and Enjoy! Just a quick info - the game will work onlty for a certain period of time and will be deleted from your Steam account after that.
  10. Here we are, moving steadily closer to the end of the year. The weather's getting colder, and everyone's preparing for the holiday rushes brought on by the new generation of gaming and the general December holiday happenings. While most of us are desperately trying to work through our backlogs, musicians instead hit their computers and instruments, pumping out a ton of free gaming music for us to listen to while fighting the holiday shopping crowds. Scroll on down for eleven completely free albums to add to your MP3 player of choice! Hardcore Adventure Box: World 1 Hardcore Adventure Box is a metal tribute to an event well beloved by Guild Wars 2 players, the Super Adventure Box, and this is the first of four planned albums based off it. The Super Adventure Box had an 8-bit inspired soundtrack, so this remix is a definite upgrade of sorts to the original tracks. Some people may prefer the original, but there's no denying this has a charm of its own. Sample Tracks: You have to check the Bandcamp page! Download here BadAss Boss Themes: Volume II The first of OCRemix's offerings this month is a compilation of heavy metal remixes of boss battle themes. Much like the the first BadAss album, it's all metal all the time, and it may not be to everyone's tastes. However, those that do love heavy metal will find a high-quality gaming album download. Sample Tracks: Download here Haunted House Despite it being the month of Halloween, this album is the only release this month that is even somewhat themed after the holiday. Haunted House is a remake of the thirteenth game of the Touhou series, Touhou Shinreibyou: Ten Desires. The bullet hell series isn't as well known for its soundtrack, but the tracks represented in Haunted House are solid, and remixed in a techno/dance style that's refreshing. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Super Guitar Bros. Super Guitar Bros. is a simple album with a simple premise: Two guys on guitar playing video game music. Given that so many gaming remixes nowadays are high-energy, rockin' or techno filled remixes, the simplicity of just the two playing guitars and nothing else makes for a different type of album to listen to. Sample Tracks: , Download here "Survaillant" Soundtrack [survaillant] is a horror game made in 48 hours for the Asylum Game Jam--since it's free, you can check it out here. The game itself is actually praised for its soundtrack, especially since it was also compiled in 48 hours, and the four track album is available for free as well. So, give the game a try then download the music! Sample Tracks: Check it out within the game! Download here The Hedgehog Initiative: Genesis Oh my... that's quite the album cover. Anyway, The Hedgehog Intiative: Genesis is the first of Belchism's guitar tributes to the blue hedgehog. This first album offers eight guitar covers from the Sonic games of the Genesis era. Unlike Super Guitar Bros., though, these are electric guitar covers, so expect a more 'rock' feeling vibe from these remixes. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Mega Man 3 - Turn of Events Remastered This Mega Man 3 tribute album by Hyde209 was originally created about a year ago. Since then, the musician has gone over all the tracks and remastered them, giving an overall better album in the process. This remixed album takes practically every track from Mega Man 3 and remixes them with a fair amount of techno and rock. If you're looking for more Mega Man tracks to round out your gaming music collection, you can't really go wrong with this somewhat conservative remix. Sample Tracks: The remastered songs are only available on Bandcamp. Download here Free Stuff: Volume 1 The title of this album couldn't align with this article more if it wanted to! Free Stuff Volume 1 is a 10 track album containing, you guessed it, free gaming music. These remixes tend to be a bit more conservative than others on this list, but the tracks are still of good quality, and worth the download. Sample Tracks: Just... check the Bandcamp page. YouTube's scary. Download here Bionic Commando ReMixed: OK, We'll Groove OCRemix is actually bringing us two albums this month, this second one being a 13 track album of remixes from the original Bionic Commando. The series may not have been doing well in recent years, but the original game's soundtrack is still solid, and the various remixers have been giving that soundtrack some loving. Sample Tracks: Gridlock, Download here Asteroid Smash Asteroid Smash is a neat little iPad game that features 4-player multiplayer... on one iPad. It's a very action packed retro-styled game, and the seven track soundtrack also reflects this overall style. These high energy chip tracks are a nice fit with the frantic game. Sample Tracks: Trailer Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! 2012 VGMC Recordings This month's oldie is actually a very short album--only three tracks! However, I'm sure you have enough albums to listen to for this month, and I don't want to give you a reason to miss out on some awesome work by the Video Game Music Choir! Their name gives away what's unique about them: They're a choir designed around singing video game tracks to the world! That might sound a little odd (since most gaming songs don't really have lyrics), but they do it well, and this album is a perfect sampler of their work. Sample Tracks: Check their YouTube page Download here That's it for October! This month we've gotten a nice spread of genres and games represented, with something even the pickiest audiophile can enjoy. As for next month... will artists be too busy to pump out more free albums for us, or will the season of giving inspire them to make even more? We'll see in November! Which album is your favorite this month? Let me know in the comments below!
  11. September has finally ended! All in all it was a relatively slow month, as gamers rev up for October's incredible amount of releases and November's introduction of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to the market. It'll at least be one of the busiest holiday seasons in a while! Unfortunately, September was a bit slow on the side of free gaming albums as well... perhaps all the composers are getting ready for the busy holiday season, as well? Of course, quantity doesn't always equal quality, and this month's selection is certainly full of quality. Let's check out the six new (and one old) albums released this past month. Donkey Kong 64 Official Soundtrack A few months back, Grant Kirkhope released free verions of many of of his past Nintendo 64 soundtracks, including the Banjo-Kazooie games and Perfect Dark. However, one particular album was not released to the public from free during that wonderful month... until now. This month Kirkhope released the official soundtrack of Donkey Kong 64 for free. That's right, you can finally legally own the DK Rap (and seventeen other tracks) for free. What are you waiting for? Go and download it! Sample Tracks: , Download here Mega Man XA Mega Man XA is sort of hard to describe. It's a compilation of various remixes done in the style of the original Mega Man X. However, the artist makes it seem as though it's the soundtrack to a fan re-imagining of the original Mega Man X... which it still may very well be, but not being able to find any more information implies otherwise. Either way, the music is a bit of a 're-telling' of X's original game in musical terms, and some of the tracks chosen for remixing are very interesting to hear in this new style. Sample Tracks: For this album, you'll have to check its Bandcamp page. Download here Be Agressive! A Gunstar Heroes Tribute This month's OCRemix offering will be a treat to Treasure game fans. Be Aggressive! is a twenty-four remix tribute to Gunstar Heroes, Treasure's beloved Genesis title. This remix project covers pretty much every track from the game, and of course is up to the high quality the site is known for. Also the website for the album is fantastic looking! Sample Tracks: , Download here Divekick Soundtrack Just like the game itself, this free Divekick soundtrack is very minimal. It contains all the tracks from the game, but it has no formatting or album cover (that picture I used is from VGMdb). Oh, and make sure to scroll to the bottom of the download link to grab the tracks--it's all very understated, so you can miss it if you're not looking. Sample Tracks: You'll have to download this album. Download here Naya's Quest Soundtrack Naya's Quest is a free browser game by Terry Cavanagh, which you can check out here. It's actually a rather interesting title that everyone should give a try, but it's hard to explain in earnest without spoiling it. Anyway, the game's soundtrack is also naturally available for free, and the few tracks played throughout the title are ambient and somewhat lonely sounding, which fits the game very well. Sample Tracks: Check the bandcamp page for the tracks. Download here Famicom Memoria XXX Shiryu's offering to the free gaming album world this month is in celebration of the Famicom's 30th anniversary. As we all know, this console was a big step for the gaming industry, and had a bunch of iconic games, and these are represented in the Famicom Memoria XXX. You'll find remixes to Super Mario, Punch-Out!!, and other 8-bit classics here. Also, while this album is available on Bandcamp, you would have to pay for it, while the links on Shiryu's site are always free. Sample Tracks: Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! Mighty Switch Force Official Soundtrack Many people interested in video game and chiptune music probably know Jake 'Virt' Kaufman by now. He's likely most well known for the various tracks he creates for WayForward's titles--the most recently of which being his remixed tracked for DuckTales Remastered. However, his older soundtracks are just as great... and his release of the Mighty Switch Force! soundtrack is certainly worth a listen. This album features all of the tracks from the 3DS game, and are as quirky and upbeat as the game itself is. Any fan of the artist or the game deserve to give this album a download! Sample Tracks: , Download here That ends this month's offerings of free gaming albums. Perhaps next month we'll get a deluge of free music with the flood of hit games coming out? What's your favorite album this month? Any that I missed? Let me know in the comments below!
  12. http://www.desura.com/games/pixel-dungeons Pixel Dungeons is a super fun Co-op Dungeon Crawler RPG made by Yohan Games. Invite 2-4 of your friends and play multiplayer! You can find over 15 weapons and 10 monsters! (in the beta). This game will have weekly updates! This game is currently on: Beta 1.1: Linux Feature will be added as soon as possible! This is free if anyone is interested, plus we can always have a pixel dungeon night if people want.
  13. Hi Everyone, Next Thursday, we'll be releasing our shooter, Crazy Chicken: Pirates on iPhone & iPad and to help celebrate the game's arrival we are giving away 10 iOS game codes on our Facebook and Twitter pages before the game's actual release (Sep 26)! If you have Facebook, then head to our Facebook page, like our competition post and tell us who your favorite pirate is to place your name in the draw! If you have Twitter, then head to our Twitter page and re-tweet our latest tweet about the competition! It is that simple! Winners will be announced on Sep 24!
  14. Now this is a shocker. Despite the fact that many people are returning to the routine of school and real life, having had their summers and vacations, it seemed that now musicians decided to break their dry spell of free gaming albums now. What caused this to happen? Maybe artists wanted to get their projects completed before the fall came? Maybe they were thinking, in a tiny part of their minds, that we desperately needed new music to help us survive the oncoming winter? ...Heck, I'm not one to complain. Let's get right to the good stuff: The free albums! If you're looking for even more free music, you can check out some of my past round-ups. Pokemon: The Eevee EP After finally finishing and releasing their massive Final Fantasy VI album, OCRemix decided to scale it down a bit for their next release. The Eevee EP focuses on, you guessed it, Eevee and all of its evolutions. The soundtrack takes nine tracks and remixes them in a style representative of of Eeveelution's type. The EP is only nine tracks, but is well worth the download. Sample Tracks: , Download here Anodyne Remix Album Anodyne is an indie title that looks a bit like a Zelda game, but carries the much deeper theme of exploring the sub-conscious. As such, the game is well-known for having a great and fitting soundtrack. Unfortunately... the OST is not free (it's $2.50 on Bandcamp), but this remix album is free for all to download. These remixes are not of low quality either--they may not be the original tracks, but they are very much worth the clicks and bandwidth! Sample Tracks: Download here Heaven Variant Emergency Soundtrack Heaven Variant was to be a pretty neat shump... unfortunately the game was cancelled. It's a shame, since it seemed like it was going well and had a great soundtrack. Well... we may not get the game, but at least the soundtrack is available for free! You can get the .AAC version of the soundtrack for free, but if you want .MP3s, you'll have to give at least fifty cents to the artist on the bandcamp page. Sample Tracks: (the official names are not on Youtube) Download here Mars: War Logs Original Soundtrack You may have heard of Mars: War Logs; Harrison Lee did review it, after all. Well now, you can download the indie sci-fi RPG soundtrack for free. This game features rather somber, more post-apocalyptic tracks as opposed to more typical upbeat sounds, so it may be a nice OST to round out your gaming music collection. Sample Tracks: , Download here Charlie Murder the Soundtrack Charlie Murder, riding on the current beat-'em-up fad, recently came out to downloadable platforms. One of the interesting things about this title was the soundtrack, actually--hardcore rocking tracks written by the game's (fictional) band, Charlie Murder. Being able to get the whole soundtrack for free as a pretty neat gesture from the developers. Download it and rock out! Sample Tracks: , Death By EverythingDownload here Remember Me Music Contest - Best Of Back in July, Capcom held a remix contest for Remember Me, the winner getting a bunch of cool stuff for their awesome remixed track. However, not only the musician won out in the end... we got some awesome music produced for the event, as well! Capcom compiled what they thought was the best of the large amount of submissions and distributed it for free. Sample Tracks: Give the download page a look! Download here Pause Ahead OST Side A Pause Ahead is an odd little game. Made by the same guy that make the hard-yet-excellent Tower of Heaven, Pause Ahead is another very difficult platformer with a very interesting twist. As such, the soundtrack holds a bit of adrenaline to it, and its 8-bit feel is very nice and nostalgic. Side A only contains five tracks, but... Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Pause Ahead OST Side B ...We got Side B of the game's tracks as well! Side B has the game's other five tracks. Considering the game's size, that's still a goo amount of tracks! Also, if you want, you can try Pause Ahead for free right here. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing! Have you heard of Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing!? The game made a bit of a splash at the Something Awful GameDev Challenge VII, and with good reason... those instead of explaining it, it's just far better to give it a try! The soundtrack is... well, it isn't too great to be honest, but it's for a typing game, and it's free, so here we have it! Sample Tracks: Wouldn't it be better to experience these moving tracks in-game? Download here Icarus Proudbottom & The Curse of the Chocolate Fountain Fun fact: Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing! was not the first game in the Icarus Proudbottom series. First came... well, this game... that mainly involves the main character trying to stop his explosive (and momentum gaining) diarrhea. So yeah, it's a game. And this is the soundtrack to that game. Give it a download... if you dare. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Knytt Underground The Knytt series is one of those series that the indie 'hipsters' know about--it's not quite mainstream, but somewhat popular nevertheless. Knytt Underground is the newest entry to that series, and its now free soundtrack is pretty massive. This album is a huge six 'discs' long, packed full of ambient tracks that are relatively chill in nature. Even if you don't plan on picking up the game, this OST's worth downloading. Sample Tracks: Amazing Sandwiches, Fire Resistance is Awkward for Obvious Reasons Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! Ao Vivo Em Conserva Gameboys is a Brazilian band that, of course, plays remixed gaming tracks. In February 2012, they did a pretty big live performance... and this album is the result of that show. Since it was a live event, the sound may not have the same quality as some of the other albums listed, but the tracks themselves are solid, and feature some neat remixes of both popular tracks and some you may have forgotten about. Sample Tracks: It was a live event... give it a download! Download here Whew, that's quite a bit of music there! I have to wonder what next month will bring... maybe our gaming music playlists will grow as large and as full as this holiday season is planning to be for the rest of gaming? We'll have to see! What's your favorite album this month? Any albums I missed? Let me know in the comments below!

  16. Have you been checking out Steam Greenlight regularly since it first opened up? If not, you've been missing out on voting for some very promising looking independent games. If you have, then chances are you came across Reprisal sometime in the last month. This RTS title is inspired by the likes of Populous and looks incredibly attractive with nice pixel design. Unlike some games on Kickstarter or Greenlight that are far from finished, the product is done and simply hoping to get enough votes to land on the Steam Store. You can vote for it here, if you like, and then check out the game's homepage. Why vote? Aside from potentially helping Reprisal into the spotlight you can also pick up the game for free for today only. No, it won't come with a Steam key since it's not even on Steam yet, but you can get a complete download for Windows, Mac, or Linux. Here's the trailer so you can see if this is the kind of game you're interested in upvoting on Greenlight:
  17. If you've ever played Dorito's Crash Course then you basically know what to expect with a sequel. The advergame really has no relation to Doritos other than as its sponsor. Players must dodge obstacles in a variety of levels akin to the show Wipeout or its Japanese counterparts. Players can even hit up Dorito's Crash Course 2 for some multiplayer. Both offline and online multiplayer are included although the online community for this game may not be bustling for long. Beyond that, there are some avatar items to unlock which will likely help advertise Doritos to your friends. Why would anyone buy this game? Unless they are a diehard junk food fan it seems unlikely which is why Dorito's Crash Course 2 is entirely free. The original is also free so pick them up together if you are ever really bored. What is your favorite/least favorite advergame (games promoting a specific company/service)?
  18. I know you've been counting the days until the end of the month. "I need my fix!", you proclaimed loudly at the Game Podunk homepage. "Where is it!? It's been a whole month already!" Well, worry no more. I've come to help you. It's hard waiting a whole month for your monthly music fix, but don't worry... you've made it. That's right, April is over, and that means twelve new albums (and one old) to download and get your music mojo on! April had two particular themes going on, actually: Love for Sonic and awesome mainstream composers giving their hit tracks out for free. Even so, though, it's a great month to be a gaming music fan! If you need even more gaming music, check out these posts for releases earlier in the year. Now grab your headphones and click away! Banjo Kazooie Complete Game Soundtrack Grant Kirkhope is a generous man. Over the past month, he has released three of his albums from Rare games into the wild, free for everyone to download. This is the first. The Banjo Kazooie soundtrack gives us 17 tracks of the iconic music. It may have been a while since you've played the game, but this album might give you the urge to give the N64 game another go! Download here Sample Tracks: , Banjo Tooie CD Soundtrack The second of Kirkhope's gifts to us this month is, unsurprisingly, the soundtrack to Banjo Tooie. Being Banjo-Kazooie's sequel, we can expect more of great sounds from the original in this 14 track compilation. It's almost as if Kirkhope wants us to delve into these classics again! Download here Sample Tracks: Perfect Dark Dual CD Soundtrack The final of Kirkhope's releases April comes to us on the final day... it's almost like a farewell to a month of fantastic music releases! These Perfect Dark tracks, while no longer on a CD, are sure to give fans another great Rare-flavored nostalgia trip. Download here Sample Tracks: , The Sonic Stadium Music Adventure 2012 Of all the Sonic album you're about the see, this one is the most massive. The year-long efforts of a entire community of Sega fans, The Sonic Stadium Music Adventure 2012 is a gigantic album that is essentially the group's love letter to the company. While the 157 tracks are mostly Sonic remixes, other Sega franchises are represented as well, such as Ristar and NiGHTS. If you're looking for only one album this month (why would you?), this is the best bang for your download. Download here Sample Tracks: , Sonic Classic 2: Original Soundtrack Before we get started, it's worth noting that Sonic Classic 2 isn't the name of the album: It's the name of a Sonic fan game. As you might expect from the name, Sonic Classic 2 is more in the vein of the classic Genesis games, and this 32 track album helps reflect that image. For those aching for some classic Sonic sounds that are, at the same time, new and unique, look no further than this album. Download here Sample Tracks: , Blue Skies, Green Hills Musicians sure have a love for Sonic this month, don't they? This 10 track tribute album takes tracks from Sonic games across many years, and the remixes are made by a variety of artists... heck, there's even a hip-hop track in there! If you're looking for some Sonic remixes that are a little more offbeat, give this a listen. Download here Sample Tracks: Second Adventure, Everything Was Green Biohazard EP Don't get too excited, Resident Evil fans; this isn't a remix of tracks from the survivor horror series... rather, it's (yet another) Sonic album! This four track album is a bit... weird, though. While the first two tracks are DjjD's original works, the second two are remixes of the Chemical Plant music from Sonic 2. Very short, but sweet. Download here Sample Tracks: Check the download page! Mayhem Triple Official Soundtrack Mayhem Triple is an odd game... apparently one about bunny invaders. I'm not quite sure what to think of the game itself... but the soundtrack is top notch. Mr. Podunkian (Editor's note: Hey, nice name!) said that he was inspired musically by another game of a similar vein: Earth Defense Force 2017. If that isn't making you frantically clicking the download link, I'm not sure what will. Download here Sample Tracks: The blog post has playable links to all the tracks; check the download link! The Adventures of Dash Advance Preview EP The Adventures of Dash isn't quite out yet, but Danny Baranowsky (well known for his work on the Super Meat Boy soundtrack) decided to share some of the music from this game ahead of time! The music seems to encompass a happy, cheerful game... and carries Baranowsky's awesome and unique signature. What a great way to build hype for the game! Download here Sample Tracks: Check the download link! Complete Composer Edition of Kameo: Elements of Power While Kirk Granthope shared three albums of his work this month, he wasn't the only mainstream artist to share his work for free this month. Ex-Rare composer Steve Burke also shared one of his works this month--the complete edition to the Xbox game Kameo: Elements of Power. Yet another generous gift from a more mainstream musician! Download here Sample Tracks: The file names are a little funky, so I had trouble finding the right matchups. Give it a download! Mystery Gift: An Original Pokemon Tribute This album isn't a remix or re-imagining of some of Pokemon's tracks; rather, it's a tribute to the series using original tracks they convey what the musician feels about the series at hand. Sounds a bit like musical art interpretation, right? Anyway, this eight track album certainly sounds like it came out out of a Pokemon game... any Pokemon fan should give it a download. Download here Sample Tracks: Another bandcamp album, another time to tell you to click the download link! Fire Emblem: War Memories Shiryu pumps out a gaming album almost every month... a very impressive feat seeing as he's only one man! This month he gives us a massive tribute to the Fire Emblem series. Shiryu covers tracks in both the newer and older games, and is a great listen for any Fire Emblem fan. It's also worth noting that this album's pretty big--spanning all the games, it round out at 30 tracks. That's a lot of listening potential! Download here Sample Tracks: Oldie But Still a Freebie The Legend of Zelda: The Essence of Lime This month's oldie as actually quite old, at least by internet standards; this Oracles of Ages remix album came out way back in June of 2010. This project had one goal in mind: Showing the world how awesome the Game Boy Color game's music was, and doing so with imaginings by various artists for many of Oracle of Ages' tracks. This shows in the 42 tracks that The Essence of Lime spans. Whether you played the original game or not, this is worth a listen just by the quality of the tracks alone. Download here Sample Tracks: That's all for April's musical offerings. Despite the general overload of Sonic, there's quite a bit of variety (and nostalgia!) hidden away in these albums. There's something for most fans to find here. Which albums are your favorite? Any singles you want to share? Let me know in the comments below!
  19. What's that? You say that mobile gaming isn't legit? You say that it's full of shovelware that isn't worth anyone's time? How wrong you are, and I'm about to show you why. Mobile gaming has become the new casual gaming market. Like the Wii was in the past, those just looking for a quick gaming fix or something that isn't overly complicated have found a place to find those games. While most mobile games don't cater to the hardcore, elite crowds, there's still plenty of fun to be had in many iOS or Android games. Best of all, a lot of these games are either very cheap or free... so what's the harm in trying them out? Let's check out ten very different, very free iOS games you should download today... maybe it'll change your mind about mobile gaming. Punch Quest If there's one genre mobile gaming is well known for, it's the 'runner' genre. The runner games basically have a character running non-stop, and the player has to jump or otherwise evade the obstacles in the character's way. Punch Quest is a runner game, but it's also so much more. Your character punches through the opposition, and you can even learn combos from points you earn to effectively take down different baddies. With that and branching levels, Punch Quest has a lot of depth for a game of its genre. Battle Cats I can use one word to describe Battle Cats: Japanese. You take a team of cats (such as Sumo Cat, Panties Cat, or Bahamut Cat), and go over to various stages around the game world. This is a tower defense game, with our kittens fighting against seals, kangaroos, and other wildlife, but there's no fear of winning when you have a cat made of lady legs. No, I didn't mistype that. Bejeweled Blitz Bejeweled is an old puzzle match-3 series, but Bejeweled Blitz brings a new element to the series' table... and that is a time limit. In this mobile and Facebook game, you have a mere sixty seconds to get the highest score possible, and with the Facebook interactivity, you can easily see how well your friends did, too. There's also a slew of neat special powers you can use, too. Mix it all together, and Bejeweled Blitz goes great on the iOS. Lost Treasures of Infocom Classic games always have an audience on a mobile device (just look at Square's multiple ports), but what about text-based adventure games? Well, The Lost Treasures of Infocom has a bunch of good old text adventures to play on your shiny new-age Apple device... and the best part is that it's all free! With a total of 20 games, including five Zork games, this compilation is bound to entertain you for a while. Pixel People Simulation games go quite well on a mobile device... especially one as well-thought out and deep as Pixel People. Being the survivors of some kind of world destroying event, your little guys are forced to rebuild and jump start society. One of the interesting aspects is that you can unlock new classes of people by accomplishing certain tasks, giving you a reason to try different strategies and combinations for your new city. It may be a bit difficult to swallow for genre newbies, but Pixel People has quite a bit going for it for the simulation fan. Draw Something! Sometimes, when you have a neat touch screen, all you want to do is doodle a few things. Thankfully, there's just the free game for you! Draw Something! is essentially a mobile version of the board game Pictionary, and it's nothing short of amazingly fun to see what people think of. With added Facebook integration to challenge friends and share pictures, it seems to be a great evolution to a fun (previously paper and pen) game. Tiny Tower You may have already heard of Tiny Tower, the simulation game involving building a tower for people to live and work in. However, it's a great game that mobile gamers need to be reminded of. The simple addiction of building your tower, gathering new residents, and slowly creating a self-sufficient society in just one building creates a sense fun and accomplishment that few games can give. Also, Tiny Tower is not quite as in-depth and complicated as Pixel People above, making it better for those that are just getting into the mobile simulation genre. Knights of Pen & Paper When I spoke of 'pen and paper' earlier, I didn't mean in the Dungeons & Dragons sense, but that is what I mean now. Knights of Pen & Paper is a (recently made free) RPG that is pretty much a stylized D&D game made mobile. You go on quests, fight bandits and go in sewers, roll dice, and even play as the Dungeon Master from time to time. It's a boon for D&D fans that want to play in between their real-life sessions. Angry Birds What? You thought Angry Birds cost money? It did. However, the developers very recently put the original up in the App Store for free... probably since practically everyone already owns a copy anyway. For those that don't, though, Angry Birds offers a fun puzzle experience involving round little birds beating up round little pigs. It may sound silly, but there's a reason everyone owns it! Ice Cream Jump Ice Cream Jump is a cute and endearing game. It's also a re-skinning of the equally free Happy Poo Jump, but I prefer playing as an ice cream scoop than a pile of poop, so there you have it. Anyway, Ice Cream Jump is what you would expect from the title: Have your sweet buddy jump upwards from platform to platform, gathering coins and avoiding flies and trying to get the highest score possible. It's fun for short bursts, making it a great mobile game to play while in transit or just waiting for something to happen. Doubt the power of the Apple now? Ten games, all free, and they cater to various and wide audiences alike. Go ahead and give them a download... you might be surprised by how much you enjoy them! So... which of the games listed above did you like most? Any mobile or iOS games you recommend, free or otherwise? Let me know in the comments below! Also, a big shout-out to Elizabeth for helping me find some of the picks above! Thank you!
  20. There's this interesting shooter/pinball mashup available on Desura for free right now, so I thought I'd let you all know! Hyperspace Pinball is free from now until April 22nd so you've got a while to pick it up if interested. Here's a trailer:
  21. So, you love video game music. Who doesn't? It's especially great when you can get it for free! Imagine, being able to own some of your favorite gaming tunes, remixes, and interpretations legally for free... sounds awesome, doesn't it? However, where can you find these generous offerings by talented musicians with the Internet being so vast? Right here, of course! Every month I'll go over all the free gaming albums released, giving you an easy way to click, download, and listen to some great music! This month is especially full of some varied and great music... so let's get started. Corporeal This first album is a set of four tracks from the game Sound Shapes. The game was originally released last year for the Vita and PlayStation 3, and is a platformer with a strong focus on its audio and how you can interact with it. That said, Jim Guthrie states on the Bandcamp page that, "These mixes are merely suggested servings and if you'd like to remix then please pickup Sound Shapes for PS3 or PS Vita." However, these mixes sound good enough to me! Sample Tracks: You'll have to check the download link! Download Here Holy Whiplash - A Castlevania Tribute There's something I really like about The Plasmas. Perhaps it's their rock tributes of some awesome tracks... or maybe it's just that they give their (what must be time-consuming) music away for free. Whatever it is, Holy Whiplash is a great compilation of remixed Castlevania tracks. Castlevania just always sounds... right in a rock genre form, so this eighteen track album is sure to strike the right chord. Sample Tracks: , Download Here Milky Way Wishes: A Kirby Super Star Tribute About once a month, OCRemix releases an official album featuring a bunch of remixes based on a certain game or series. They skipped February, but this month we get a nice, meaty album based off of Kirby Super Star. I always found Kirby music whimsical and fun to listen too, and this album doesn't fail to deliver awesome and varied remixes to the SNES game's soundtrack. If you like Kirby, OCRemix, or both, give it a download! Sample Tracks: , Download Here Boy Without a Fairy There's nothing wrong with hip-hop. Just look at Boy Without a Fairy, Dr. Awkward's lyrical tribute to The Ocarina of Time. This album mixes some of Ocarina of Time's most memorable tracks with some nerdcore rap flavor, making for an odd, but intriguing tribute. Sample Track: Download Here Assassin's Creed III: The Tyranny of King Washington - Music from the Video Game Whew, that's a long title! It's also one that makes my job easy, since there's no question as to what this album is about. It may not be the entirety of Assassin's Creed III's soundtrack, but it's always nice to have some of it! The Facebook for Assassin's Creed III in Spain posted the link to this DLC soundtrack... but they ended up getting the link wrong, so it had to be modified slightly to work, which I've included here. Sample Tracks: , Download Here Ledjent of Zelda Two Legend of Zelda tracks in one month? We're being spoiled! Anyway, if you look at Ledjent of Zelda's album cover, you can probably figure out what this is: A metal cover of some of The Legend of Zelda's tracks. There are only four tracks, but they are long and rockin' the whole time. If you like metal, Mega Beardo's offering is for you. Sample Tracks: The bandcamp page is the only place with the complete tracks. Download Here Deus Ex: Sonic Augmentation I've never played the Deus Ex games, so I never knew they really have a soundtrack people would want to remix. However, some musicians over at OCRemix decided to show me what's up. Yes, that's right, another OCRemix project! Anyway, this four track album gives you some great remixes... if you can figure out how to download it! Sample Tracks: Go to the Facebook pages for the previews! Download Here - Okay, this one's complicated. First, you need a Facebook account. When you can get to the page, you have to right click the cart icon on each track individually and select 'Save Link As...' to get the tracks. Mega Man X - The Grand Maverick Remix Battle 2012 Did you know that the tracks from the Mega Man X series can be mashed well together? Neither did I, but DarkSworde and the OCRemix forum force show us what's up. In actuality, this isn't the first time this mash-up remix battle has been done, either; this was also done back in 2010, and included in OCRemix's Mega Man X tribute album. This fifty-three track album includes all of the entries, from first to last place, so you'll have a lot of interesting mash-ups to listen to! Sample Tracks: , Download Here AlterEgo DreamWalker OST AlterEgo: DreamWalker is the sequel to the mobile game AlterEgo, which in turn is inspired by the 1986 game called Alter Ego. Whew! Anyway, the newer games sport a retro aesthetic and neat gameplay mechanics... but how does that reflect on the soundtrack? It has a neat chiptune sound, but still modernized and great sounding. Even if you don't plan on playing the game, give the OST a listen! Sample Track: Download Here Ahoge Chanbara Original Soundtrack Sometimes, when looking through gaming soundtracks, you can learn of a game that you've never heard of before... and that ended up being the case with me and Ahoge Chanbara. It's a very... Japanese mobile release, involving cute chibi girls beating each other up with their crazy hair styles. You can even earn points and upgrade to more powerful, eccentric hair styles. Seriously... and this is the game's soundtrack. It's cutesy and fitting for the game, so go ahead and give a listen. Sample Tracks: Sorry, you'll have to go to the Bandcamp page. Download Here Remixing With the Stars: Season 1 What's this? Not one, not two, not even three... but FOUR OCRemix related releases in one month? This is crazy! Anyway, MindWanderer's Remixing With the Stars is a very interesting concept for the OCRemix forums. Basically, new remixers could team up with OCR veterans to remix gaming tracks, learning from their mentors and eventually ending in a 'season finale' where the newbies would remix a previous track all by themselves and show off what they learned. This album is the accumulation of all of the first season, so it's full of some new faces and remixes! Sample Tracks: Download only; no samples, sorry! Download Here Mass Effectively While he can't keep up with the output of a huge group of remixers, Shiryu puts out albums about as often as OCRemix puts out official albums... that's quite a feat considering he's one man! This month Shiryu created a tribute album to the Mass Effect series. Shiryu has a bit of an odd musical style at times, but if you love Mass Effect odds are you'll love this offering. Sample Track: Download Here Oldie But Still a Freebie! NES Jams That's right! From now on, not only will I go over all the free releases of the month, but I also will be highlighting an older free album to show off. Why? Because even though they aren't the newest releases, they still deserve some love! NES Jams is a very interesting album. Creator Shnabubula mixes NES tracks with the piano, and it works to amazing results. These eleven tracks are all top notch creations, masterfully and lovingly melding the two very different sounds together. If you don't download this now, you're missing out! Sample Tracks: Temple (Zelda 2), Gemini Man Download Here That's all for this month... thirteen great albums that vary from retro to rocking. The best part? There will be more come the end of April! If you need more, though, you can always check out my earlier entry, and I'll see you next month! Which albums do you like best? Any I missed? Let me know in the comments below!

    The Free Bundle 5 Includes Six Games

    Who needs all those totally expensive Humble, Gala, and Royale bundles when you can have games for free? As is now becoming the norm, the Cabrera Brothers have just launched their fifth Free Bundle to the masses. Unfortunately, there's no Steam keys to be given out but if you need those that's why other bundles exist. Here are the six free games: Alter Ego (Windows/Linux/ZX Spectrum/NES) The Battle of Wesnoth (Windows/Mac/Linux) Burn & Turn (Windows/Mac/Linux) Slaves of Rema (Windows/Mac) Super Smash Land (Windows) The Witch's House (Windows) While most of these games could be found for free to begin with, Slaves of Rema is actually a game that usually costs $6. It's nice to see developers give away a game for free, even for a limited time frame. The next Free Bundle is set to launch in 17 days, so download these freebies at your leisure.
  24. http://www.popcap.com/promos/pax-east-2013 All you have to do is put in your email, and they'll send you a download link and a code to register. This game is also compatible for Mac. $9.99 at the Steam store. I tried this game and I thought it was fun. Nothing great but still enjoyable for me.
  25. Interested in getting some free Microsoft points? Well Coinstar can hook you up with their new cash out options that include Microsoft points codes. All you need to do to get your free $10 certificate is find a Coinstar in your local Kroger and cash out $30 worth of Microsoft points at the machine. After you cash it out the machine will print out a $10 code that can be used to purchase Xbox Live time or for just more points. Cashing out a Microsoft Points card at your local Coinstar will apparently automatically remove the usual fee of 10%, so if you're looking for a good deal on points then look no further than Coinstar while the deal is still active. Remember, it has to be a Coinstar located at a Kroger supermarket. This deal apparently won't work with just any old Coinstar machine. If you want to read more about their current promotion before you run down to the store with $30 in quarters then be sure to check the link below. Coinstar Promotions
