MMOs are good. PC games are good. Paying around fifteen bucks for them monthly is not.
No one likes to pay for a game and then pay even more to play it each month. So we’ve compiled a short list of five of our favorite free-to-play MMOs, so that you can save your money to spend on something more important.
After many months of waiting, Valve has officially released the second to last of the “Meet the Team” videos. “Meet the Medic” is one of the longest “Meet the Team” videos and has been creating a buzz all over the internet. And rightfully so, gamers have been waiting for this to drop since May 2009 when “Meet the Spy” came out.
Also, in this update Valve has made TF2 free to play, with tiered Free and Premium accounts. If you have “ever spent money on TF2, you have a premium account. This includes purchasing the game before it was Free-to-Play, activating a retail version of the game, or making a purchase in the Mann Co. in-game store.” It seems like this was hinted at with new free games showing up on Steam last week; this will help keep TF2 one of the most popular war-themed hat simulators since 2007.

After seeing the demo that Epic Games previewed at the Apple Keynote, I was stunned how well it looked. Thanks to the kind people at Epic Games and Apple, you can follow the link to check it out on your iOS device (iPhone 3gs, 4, iPad, or iPod Touch 3). Link after the jump.
Hey, do you like free? Do you like Star Wars? Do you like scruffy lookin’ nurf herders? No, ok well thats just me. If you answered yes to the first two questions, you may be interested in knowing that Star Wars: The Clone Wars Adventures comes out September 15th.
The countdown on MekTek Studios’ website is counting down the hours to the release of the FULL MechWarrior 4 (plus all expansion packs) … FREE.
From a quote left by the forum admin:
“In honor of BattleTech’s 25th anniversary, Smith and Tinker has authorized MekTek.net and MekTek Studios to distribute MechWarrior 4 (along with its expansion packs) completely free. For years, MekTek.net has been the central point for online distribution of MechWarrior 4 expansion packs. Now they can provide the core game free to the fans as well. Keep an eye on BattleTech.com — the free download will be available soon!”
He also noted about the new franchise reboot coming as well:
“MechWarrior fans have been hoping, praying and anticipating a new game in the famed franchise ever since the last expansion pack for MechWarrior 4 was released in 2002. Now, seven years later, their prayers have been answered. IGN has the very first details about MechWarrior reboot that is currently in production at Smith and Tinker and Piranha games. Yes, that’s right, reboot. Instead of this game becoming MechWarrior 5, the developers have decided to completely re-launch the entire franchise, calling this new title MechWarrior.”

Dr. Pepper’s website will be hammered all day today due to the free soda promotion they are doing.
