Coupons Galore

October 23, 2010 Leave a comment

Coupon codes, much like their counterparts in newspapers and ads, allow for some pretty appealing discounts in day to day shopping. Their usage are also somewhat more convenient and environmentally friendly than traditional paper based cut-outs. And, with the help of sites such as RetailMeNot, you’ll be able to browse couple codes collected from over 65,000 electronic stores. Granted, many of them are in the U.S, but there is still a respectable collection of couple codes applicable for use in countries such as Canada. Even better, their databases are constantly updated by contributers who are really everyday people willing to share their findings, so you can be sure that what you’re getting works.

Blender

October 8, 2010 Leave a comment

Blender, an open-source 3D graphics program, constitutes a viable alternative to the likes of 3D Max and Maya. The fact that it’s free only extend its appeal to amateurs as well. In short, it is more than capable of filling in the basic roles that proprietary software accomplish, which spans from 3D modeling, texturing, simulation to that of CG effects creation and animation. But it doesn’t stop there, you may also use Blender to create 3D games or whole films from scratch if you’re feeling particularly adventurous. While it may not have the most intuitive user interface around (none does, really), by virtue of price and a relatively powerful feature-set, Blender easily trumps the competition in accessibility and general-purpose use. Though, before you do go experimenting in the dark, be warned that Blender is not (yet) suitable for professional use for its lack of adherence to proprietary and industry-standard formats, and the fact that it would take weeks or sometimes months before you can nail down the basics.

Morningstar

October 1, 2010 Leave a comment

Having played my fair share of puzzle games, it could be said that the genre is saturated if not outright hopeless in its chances to compete with the likes of Farmville and such. I won’t say that Morningstar is any different in terms of its appeal, just that it’s the rare gem of the bunch. That’s not too difficult of a feat to confirm as skillful mastery of artwork and soundtracks are demonstrated within seconds in its 3D-animated intro. By then, you’ve just barely scraped the surface of what’s to come, for its plot and gameplay is what bestows the hallmark signature of suspense and mystery to the atmosphere/mood of the game, which then translates into an ultimately rewarding experience for the players. And as far as the difficulty goes, it’s fairly challenging, but not too arduous to overcome, at least when one could just consult the walkthrough.
