Enjoy Summer With Some ePets In Epic Pets 3D

Posted on July 11, 2013 by Les Major

It’s a long summer, and the next Pokémon release is a few months away. So why not take a vacation with a different game in Epic Pets 3D, a new Pokémon-like indie pet game by Quick Fix Inc?

I hadn’t heard about Epic Pets 3D yet until today, but thanks to a friend I’ve been checking it out and it definitely looks like a lot of fun! Indie games are definitely making a surge these days into beautiful titles and Epic Pets 3D has a clean art style to it! With over 300 five star reviews on Google Play already and new updates on the way including new ePets, it looks like the game has a promising future.

Best of all, the game is free to your Android device on Google Play and Kindle Fire with just some ad support, but it looks like you can even purchase a remove for that in the in-game store. Read on for the trailer.Read More


The 2013 Steam Summer Sale Has Begun!

Posted on July 11, 2013 by Les Major

It’s official! After a heavy load of visitors brought the store to a halt, it’s now somewhat working with occasional heavy load messages. Today’s big sale? Bioshock Infinite at 50% off! Scribblenauts Unlimited, which we’ve reviewed and we’re very much fans of is on for a meer $4.99! Current flash sales include Counter Strike: Global Offense for just over $5, Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition for $8.99 (A fantastic game if you haven’t already gotten into it), GRID 2 and Skyrim: Legendary Edition top out the current sales featured every eight hours.

Things do seem a bit rough, even for the wishlist page, so at current time you may want to specifically go to the Steam page of games you’re curious about to confirm if they’re on sale or not. I know I’m eagerly checking my list.

Steam has also introduced a large focus on the recent addition of trading cards to the site. They’re virtual cards that apparently can be crafted into Steam badges. These in turn give you marketable items such as emoticons, profile backgrounds, and coupons. Cards can even be dropped in games such as Borderlands 2 it seems.
