I finally put up a video of my Android game, Aliens are Jerks. The sound isn’t that great, thanks to the fact that it records sound from the game using the external microphone – which results in really low quality audio recording. Ah well. Check it out in the Android store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.atomicboy.aliensarejerks
Yesterday, I published my first smartphone app. It’s for Android phones only and it’s free (no payment, no ads). You can take a look here.
I’ve been using Chrome for a few years now. One thing about Chrome is that they display the eight most visited websites on the front page. That’s nice, but: I’d like more than eight websites, and I’d like to control which websites appear on the list. I finally a chrome-plugin that would let me do that. It’s called Speed Dial, and it’s free, so I’m happy.
(Note: There is one problem I have with Speed Dial though: you can’t remove an existing bookmark from your bookmark list. A workaround is to go into Chrome, go to extensions, turn off Speed Dial, edit your bookmarks, then turn Speed Dial back on.)
Mark Morgan put together a free hi-quality version of the soundtracks to Fallout 1 & 2:
Mark Morgan’s “Vault Archives” is remastered and mixed full-bandwidth soundtrack from old-classic “Fallout” games (24 tracks).
I think he copied the original music and recorded it in much higher quality. For anyone who spent way too much time playing the Fallout series (like I did), this will bring back some memories. You can download it here or here, and listen to a few tracks using the embedded player here.

Ha. What a funny game concept. Go and play Cream Wolf at Adult Swim.
Pretty clever mashup. One word of advice: if you get caught at the very end of the level, you only need to build the outline.
Google recently added a new feature to search. They teamed-up with a few other companies to place music in their search results. As far as I can tell, they provide four full tracks and links where you can buy their music. Pretty cool stuff, and a good way to check-out music by bands if you don’t know much about them. Here’s an example:
A demo of Empires of Steel is now available. You can download it here.
Free Flash-based versions of Doom, Hexen, and Heretic. Play them here. (Hmm, reminds me of college.)
