This was a triumph… Steam for Mac! Free Portal!

May 12, 2010

Steam for Mac

… I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.  It’s hard to overstate my satisfaction…

Valve’s digital game distribution platform Steam, first available to PC users in 2004, was finally released for Mac operating system today.  I’m not a huge fan of digital distribution and despise digital rights management, preferring to actually own my content instead of lease it, but it’s great to see some gaming love go to Mac users.  As a bonus, signing up for Steam is free AND right now you can download the awesome Portal for FREE!  That’s right, my previous Game of the Year pick is FREE until May 24th.  Have your cake and eat it too!  No lie!

Free Books: Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson

December 6, 2009

This weekend I was listening to the Sword and Laser podcast’s interview with Brandon Sanderson, who is the author chosen to finish the Wheel of Time series off after the death of WoT author Robert Jordan.  I read and enjoyed the first two WoT books this year, and am going to continue to work on the series next year, so the interview was of interest to me.  During it, he mentioned that he had a new novel that was released this year called Warbreaker that is available to download for free on his website.  The hardcover lists on Amazon for $18.45 and the Kindle edition for $9.99, so this is a great deal.  It’s got 4.5/5 stars out of 153 customer reviews on Amazon, so it looks like it’s a good book.

I downloaded the Mobipocket version on my Kindle and it works great.  If you’re looking for a good free read, give it a shot.

Free Doctor Who: The Mists of Time

August 20, 2009

If you’ve never tried any of the Doctor Who audio series from Big Finish before, you’ve been missing out on some good stuff.  Now’s your chance to give it a try – for free!  The 19 August issue of Doctor Who Magazine (Issue #411) has a link and code to Big Finish Productions website.  According to the site:

There’s a brand new audio adventure that readers can download for free that’s exclusive to Doctor Who Magazine! The story forms part of the Companion Chronicles series, in which the Doctor’s friends and allies recount previously untold adventures.

The Mists of Time features the Third Doctor and his companion, Jo Grant. When Jo finds herself on a distant planet in the far future, she’s greeted by an archaeologist, Calder, who is marooned on the deserted world. With no memory of how she arrived, Calder reminds her that they’ve met before – and she starts to recall a tale of ghosts and murders and a terrible Time Lord secret…

The Mists of Time stars Katy Manning as Jo Grant and Andrew Whipp as Calder.

The story is full length, clocking in at 1:27:43.  Follow the link and enter code 01795 to download.  While there, check out their other special DWM exclusive offers, as well as the rest of their audios.
