5 Tabletop RPGs You Can Download for Free

Playing games on a computer or console is great fun, but these systems set the rules in code and often are designed to be played with just one person in a room. This makes the social aspect of gaming less important and leaves players at the mercy of the game’s rules. Tabletop role-playing games get around these problems by putting players around the same table. They’re great fun.

Are These The Birds You’re Looking For? The Angry Birds Star Wars Review [MUO Gaming]

In late 2009 Finnish developer Rovio did what every small development studio aspires to do – made it big with a simple yet addictive game. The recipe for success, or “milking it” was staring them in the face, and since then we’ve seen a total of 6 full-priced Angry Birds releases on iOS, Android and beyond. The latest is by far the franchise’s most adventurous yet – Angry Birds Star Wars, a controversial pairing for two immediately recognisable brands.

Tetris is fast approaching its 30th birthday, having originally been released in the USSR in 1984. What’s absolutely amazing is that Tetris has lost none of its appeal in those three decades, gaining new fans along the way and pleasing each generation in turn. It’s arguably now more popular than ever, with millions of copies of the game finding their way on to mobile phones in recent years. This popularity is mainly due to insane addictiveness.

Over the history of video games, there have been more consoles than most people think. People think about the dominance of Sega and Nintendo in the prime of video games, and of course the Atari VCS (aka Atari 2600) before that. In the modern era, gamers think about Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo as the big three. Of course, this is true today, but back in the day, all kinds of odd systems hit the market, some of which were from the big companies.

Tim did a great article last year reviewing some of the best emulators for handheld consoles, but of that group I think that VisualBoyAdvance really shines.

I’m a PC gamer. That’s not to say I don’t own consoles, of course, but my favorite and preferred platform is the PC. Games almost always look better and/or run smoother on a computer than they do on their console counterparts. They’re also less expensive. That’s not to say PC gaming is without issues. Many players don’t like it because it forces the user to sit at a cramped desk rather than lounging on a couch.

It’s difficult to remember a time when games consoles didn’t connect to the Internet.

At that stage in time PC gamers had been playing online for many years, and the Xbox wasn’t even the first console to feature Internet connectivity.
