Uh-oh. Know what day today is? Yeah... *gulp*
Well I for one won't let superstition get the best of me. In fact, it's scientifically proven that getting games for free is the best way to change bad luck into good. Lucky (ha-ha!) thing I just so happen to have a list of a few of these zero-cost gems right here. Be sure to check them all out right after the break.
(NOTE: Free games are most certainly not scientifically proven to fix bad luck. However, they will kill time while sitting in the emergency room after that "unfortunate incident" with the cat and the Thighmaster.)
Hero Academy - Okay, yes, I did indeed just review this game but so what? It's free and it just came out. It fits the criteria. That, and it's freaking fantastic. The unassuming little turn-based strategy title did get an Editor's Choice Award, after all...
Urban Crime - It looks like Gameloft went and took the open-world crime caper stylings of their supremely popular Gangstar series and turned it into a multiplayer game. Players can fight rivals, conquer territories, build their character and partake in an "endless" number of missions. I think we all know what we should do about this. (PROTIP: we should all download and play the crap out of it, that's what we should do about it)
Run Like Hell! ICE COLD - Runners almost always make for a good time when stuck in some sort of dull situation in which a very small portable gaming device would come in handy. The original was no exception, and it even managed to stand-out a bit from the crowd thanks to the colorful visuals and rather bizarre concept. What with the cannibals and all. Now the very same idea (being chased by not nice things) has been combined with the main reason everyone played that slaloming classic, SkiFree (c'mon, we all know it's true): the yeti. Yes. Yes, this will do nicely...
Mobster Wars 3D - The one thing that's always been painfully absent from that other mob-themed online game has been true and proper visual representation. Sure it has stuff to look at, but there's no context to it. Everything just sort of sits there lifelessly on a checklist. Now we have a game that does the genre proud, and has nifty graphics to ogle while playing it. Make sure not to fuhgetuhbout this one. Sorry, I had to.
