Gibs: The Sims 2 is free right now

EA is giving The Sims 2 away for free, until 31 July 2014 10h00 PDT (that’s 19h00 for us GMT+2 people), to drum up anticipation for the impending launch of The Sims 4 (I/we/the internet/everyone figures, but EA says it’s “because you’re a passionate The Sims 2 player”). Even better, the edition being given away is the Ultimate Collection, which is The Sims 2 base game plus ALL THE THINGS (eight expansions, ten stuff packs, the whole shebang). So if it’s still before the cut-off time and you haven’t already done so and you like free things, you’d best open Origin up (app or website), keep reading to take advantage.

Gibs: The Curse of Naxxramas has dropped

Following my earlier post about the Hearthstone expansion, Curse of Naxxramas, the title of this one also pretty much says all it needs to. Especially if you read that earlier post. If you didn’t read the earlier post, this next sentence might be handy: the first wing of Curse of Naxxramas, called The Arachnid Quarter, will be free for the first month following the expansion’s dropping (ie. for a month from RIET NAOW LIKE WHILE I’M TYPING OR MAYBE FROM YESTERDAY ‘CAUSE THAT’S WHEN THE AMERICA-LAND VERSION DROPPED). So, there you are then.

Gibs: Stay a while and listen to (watch) Tek Syndicate

On one of my YouTube adventures (binges) I happened upon a video by Tek Syndicate. Well, actually, I ignored it there in the “recommended” section for a few days and finally let my curiosity out to click on it, but anyway… That indulgence in curiosity has steadily led to Tek Syndicate becoming one of my favourite places on the internet, with their technology and internet news, hardware reviews, and general cool. The Tek, their “main” video series, has become something that I eagerly look forward to watching every week and the other review, news, and gaming videos are almost always informative and interesting (and always entertaining). So, you should watch them (whoever you are), to know more things and stuff.

But that’s not all! Here’s the bit where I reveal an ulterior motive to this post… They’re (well, Logan is) giving away a car (Logan’s car), along with a sweet, new gaming PC that I’d be mighty proud to own (wanna know who Logan is? Watch The Tek! :P). So, y’know, watch The Tek (and everything else Tek Syndicate does), enter the car competition by referring my entry to give me more entries when you make entries (yeah, yeah, I’m in ol’ RSA and not really eligible but whatever, shut up; if you’re in Yankee Land or Canada make friends here, if I win maybe I could ask Logan to drive to you instead of getting him and car stuffed into a container for shipping), and just be a better human Tek. Being. Teing. Err…
