Humble Bundle 2 Launched, 4 Indie Games, Pay What you Like

Humble Bundle 2 Launched, 4 Indie Games, Pay What you Like

For me, gaming has changed a lot in past years. While I was always a fan of great freeware and indie games, I never found them to be my main source of entertainment. With publishers and game developers like Electronic Arts or Activision Blizzard concentrating on releasing one sequel of a successful series after another, I started to move away from buying a lot of full priced games, as games became repetitive and boring.I was able to do that mainly because independent games became more professional,...

GeneRally Arcade Racer [Game Saturday]

GeneRally Arcade Racer [Game Saturday]

Remember Super Cars on the Commodore Amiga or Death Rally on the PC? Micro racing simulations that were lots of fun to play, especially if a multiplayer option was available. GeneRally is a freeware game that’s focusing on the racing, and not on extras, power boosts or even shooting. While that may make the game look like its less fun to play than its more action-orientated counterparts, it is something that racing fans still might want to try out.The less than 2 Megabyte download...

First the release of Dear Esther which some says is a master piece, and others boring as hell, then Journey for the Playstation 3, and now Hubris. Hubris, unlike the other two games mentioned here, is a freeware game that you can download and play if you have access to a Windows PC.

Dig-N-Rig [Game Saturday]

Dig-N-Rig [Game Saturday]

Dig-N-Rig has a few similarities to the smash hit Terraria that has been available on Steam for some time now. It is not a clone though, and since it is free, I thought it would be a good idea to review it on today’s Game Saturday.The game is a 2D mining simulation that puts the player in control of a mining robot whose task it is to reach the center of the earth.In order to do that, minerals need to be farmed and invested into upgrades.The game plays in a window on the desktop (Windows...

Save Game Backup, Easily Backup Game Saves

Save Game Backup, Easily Backup Game Saves

A corrupt, deleted or overwritten save game may frustrate a player that much, that it’s game over for that game, literally. I have experienced my share of games who corrupted save games (often shortly after release, fixed with patches) either because of a bad design, bugs or the fact that patches would render save games from previous game versions incompatible. The motivation to start the game anew usually went down the drain after this, and the consequence was a half-finished game...

Forced Real Name Posting Coming To Blizzard Forums

Trolling seems to be a huge problem on Blizzard forums at websites like battle.net or worldofwarcraft.com as the company has just announced plans to switch to Real ID posting on the forums. Real ID has been introduced as a feature a while ago to make connections with other players on battle.net easier. It basically displays the real name of other players in friend lists. Players are then able to see not only the real name of Real ID friends but also the names of their Real ID friends. The...

Those saves are then stored mostly in the My Documents folder and to a lesser extent in the program’s game directory. These saves can be backed up manually by simply copying the relevant files to another location. This requires some research to find out how the save games are named by the game. Backing up game saves can be important before moving to...
