Holiday weekends usually mean long car rides and time with your family. Distract the kids in the backseat and make music when you're hanging out and do both on the cheap with this week's holiday batch of deals.
There's never been a better time to be a Mac gamer. Over the last few years we've witnessed the birth of Mac games on Steam, the opening of Apple's Mac Store, and now, EA has rolled out the final version of its EA client to Mac OS X. All in all, Origin is a decent service with a lot of potential, assuming the library expands.
We got a big weekend's worth of deals here as we roll into the biggest shopping weekend of the new year -- President's Day? Apparently so, as lots of app developers are offering you cut rate deals on top shelf apps in a fit of patriotic pricing we're at a loss to explain. Don't question the deals, just take advantage of them. It's what Honest Abe would have wanted.
When the first Sims 3 expansion pack hit our desks, we figured it might be worth a look--y’know, maybe if our sock drawer had other plans that night. Good thing duty called--it turns out World Adventures is worth more than a look. In fact, we think any self-respecting Sims 3 fan should purchase it immediately.
We’re divided on The Sims 3. We partly see the dollhouse-style people
simulator as a fun way to vicariously experience parts of life that are
far removed from our everyday monotony--and monogamy. On this level,
The Sims excels. You can become a master thief, buy a mansion, or wreck
marriages without any real-world consequences.
