December 13, 2009

Seriously! Go look! After a long 3 month downtime, the free rental site Demonoid.com is back up.

September 29, 2009

To play the game for free you need to either steal it or borrow it. Or you can play the free Episode 1 of Fable 2 that’s on the Xbox Live Marketplace right now.

Alright! Sorta free Fallout stuff!

September 16, 2009

Bethesda wants to thank all those Fallout 3 fans with something extra. On October 1st you will be able to download a free Fallout 3 Xbox Premium Theme. The catch? You need to have bought all 5 DLC packs by September 22nd in order to get it for free. If you haven’t yet and you want to get the theme, you can either buy them all up now or just pay the 240 microsoft points.

Which is a better deal, $50 of game content or about $3 worth of points? I’ve already bought all the DLC so free theme for me!

wii-internet-channel-1Remember when the Internet channel on the Nintendo Wii was a free trial? Then after that you had to pay 500 points, or $5, in order to keep it?

There was a price drop on the channel, a 500 point price drop! That’s right, you can now have the internet channel on your wii for frii…I mean free!

Wait, you paid for it? Don’t worry, you are getting a refund…sorta. Nintendo is giving people that paid for the internet channel a “free” Nintendo game from the Virtual Console.

The internet channel is officially free to U.S. residents today, the game deal doesn’t start until October and lasts until the end of the year.

How do you want your Mother 3 handbook?

July 10, 2009

You can head over now to fangamer.com’s fancy Mother 3 site to go pick up the even fancier Mother 3 handbook. These babies are flying off the shelves for 20 bucks a pop and they are also peddling a key chain courage badge that you can buy as a combo deal. But if you aren’t interested in an archaic form like paper you can pay 6 bucks and get the Hi-Rez downloadable version. Or, for the mega cheap gamer, you can view it online here! Either way they are really making sure that you are properly up to date on all the goin’s on in Mother 3.
