FilePlanet has free games

FilePlanet.com has a free games page on their site where they have free games listed. Free and paying FilePlanet.com members can download any game listed on that page for free. I just checked out the page and the game Far Cry is available to download for free. Although the game is ad-supported, I think it's a good opportunity to get a good game for free.

Google Pack now offers free office software

Google is now offering users to download the free office software suite, StarOffice. This is good news for computer users who can't afford Microsoft Office and need an alternative.

From an InformationWeek.com article:
"StarOffice includes word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, graphics, and database applications, along with a library of images and 3D effects. Normally available for $70, StarOffice is free with Google Pack.

Google has long avoided positioning its online productivity applications as Microsoft Office competitors, preferring instead to emphasize Google Docs & Spreadsheets programs as tools for collaboration. The addition of StarOffice to Google Pack shows Google confronting Microsoft more directly than its rhetoric suggests."

I personally use OpenOffice for office software but I may try StarOffice for a lap top I have or for maybe something else.

Play old Nintendo games online

Well I was searching to see if you could play old Nintendo games online and I found two sites so far. Both sites let you play old Nintendo games online for free. I tried playing Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, Metal Gear, Super Mario Bros., and Super Mario Bros. 3. They were all fun playing and brought back some old memories of when my brother and I use to play Nintendo together. The two sites I visited were EveryVideoGame.com and Excessively.net. If you're a video game nut as myself and/or like the old games that are no longer released, make sure to check out those sites.

GTA fans will not be happy because Grand Theft Auto IV will be delayed until 2008. Here's a quote from GameSpot.com:
"Take-Two Interactive stunned the game industry by announcing it was delaying Grand Theft Auto IV to the second quarter of its 2008 fiscal year, which begins on February 1, 2008. Published by Take-Two subsidiary Rockstar Games, the crime-action title had been slated to ship for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in North America on October 16, 2007."
