Did you say, free?

The last computer game I seriously played was the Sims 3 - about two years ago. This Thursday, that may change. Since most of my gaming experience has been on consoles, I've never been too interested in MMO's. But this is one I will definitely try.

Today, IGN reported Star Wars: The Old Republic will offer new users a free trial starting Thursday, March 15 and ending Monday, March 19. The trial gives users the opportunity to try out the eight available classes and explore their Orgin world and Capital world. PVP Warzone will also be available along with The Esseles and Black Talon flashpoints, IGN reported.  

As a Star Wars geek, I am incredibly excited. I've heard great things about this game, and it'll be my first MMO. I think this would be a great way to get started, and if I don't like it, I can at least say I've tried. Let me know if you plan on taking part in this trial!

Yours truly,

Since I got my iPhone last August, I have been on the hunt for ways to make the little machine reflect me and my interests. I have over 600 pictures and five pages of apps. The memory on the little poor device is almost bloated with the 572 songs and three movies I have on it. However, I keep pushing it's limits.

I love the Simpsons. Especially the games. I remember countless hours I spent as Lisa, running around Springfield in The Simpsons Arcade Game, Road Rage, Hit and Run and the recent The Simpsons Game.

Now, EA has cranked out another Simpsons game to occupy the time I don't have. This time it's free and for the iPhone - sorry Android users. 

The Simpsons: Tapped Out is the newest addition to the Simpsons game collection and it is wonderful! I've only begun the tutorial, but I'm already in love with the plot and the gameplay. In this game, Springfield is wiped out by a nuclear explosion, thanks to Homer. He is the only person left in what used to be Springfield. It has become a large field of grass with scattered products of nuclear waste. It is your job to rebuild the iconic town. With a simple tap and a bit of money, you have ability to place buildings, foliage and decor wherever you desire.

The controls  can be a little tricky at times. Tapping something once doesn't always complete the action desired. Precision is key, and when the target is only a few pixels big, it can be a little tedious. Despite this hiccup, the game has already become addicting. So much for doing my Japanese homework.

If you download this game, what do you think? Let me know in the comment section below!
