The professional network on Facebook moves into the open World wide web with “about” pages for users.
One of the most attractive aspects a videogame can offer is escapism. Offering the opportunity to experience things that you just can’t get in real life helps to satisfy that whiny inner child’s vivid imagination.
You would be forgiven for thinking that we, as a society, were past the days of random franchises getting kart racers. Activision has announced DreamWorks Super Star Kartz for enough systems to blot out the sun: DS, 3DS, Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. I mean, if you’re going to do it, might as well go all out and throw in a “z.”
Included in this game is four-person splitscreen multiplayer and 14 characters from Shrek, Madagascar, How to Train Your Dragon, and Monsters vs. Aliens. For those of you with kids — I’m sorry.
Admittedly now might not be the best time to stock up on older titles (regardless of how cheap they are), with the year’s biggest games on the near horizon. Even still, Amazon’s got some deals that might interest you, starting with a $50 store credit for buys of the Xbox 360 4GB console with Kinect bundle.
Likely more relevant to the majority of you is another one of those “buy one game, get one for 50% off” offers. The selection is mostly stuff you’d expect to see, though this might be a good chance to get in on the Nintendo Selects series since they’re already affordable at $19.99 a piece.
