The best game EVER … is now free. Till May 24th.

Seriously, run – don’t walk – and download Portal for free.

It’s the game that burns twice as bright but half as long as most games. It’s the game that gives a 3D shine to essentially a fiendishly clever mind-blowing puzzle game. It’s got more character than most Hollywood films, it brizzles with tension, and it’s more hilarious than Matrix: Revolutions.

Go. Download. It. Now.

Awomo – you fail!

Awomo – you fail!

I spotted a BBC News article on Awomo, a new UK-based games company that was offering streaming downloads of games – and offering Tomb Raider: Legend for free during its beta period. So I thought I’d try it out.

It took me a while to download the required program, then six minutes to download the essential game files, and I thought I was ready to go. Unfortunately, trying to launch the game launched a flurry of pop-up warnings.

The laughingly-called support part of the website said that if there were any problems, you should try and visit the Awomo fourms, which is fair enough. But I couldn’t spot the answer to my problem on the forum, so I thought I ought to try and ask a seperate question.

Only to find that you can’t post on said forum without registering, and the administrators have disabled registration.

Thus, we have a new online games company which is so unkeen to hear from its customers that it won’t let them post to the forum in any way, shape or form. Odd, that.
