That link doesn't work.... maybe CAG is mangling it for referrer purposes.

In any event, its also freely available from SCUMMVM's website, which wouldn't require a GOG account.

Anyone have any opinions about the X-Wing trench run game from THQ? $4.99 seems a bit steep, even to a Star Wars fanatic like myself.

I'm not sure how many of you were still interested after the whole MILF thing, but knowing CAG, I'm sure it's a lot of you.

I bit on enigmo 2. I've only played it for a little while so far but I loved it. Definite recommend at $.99. Anyone have any opinions on pangea's other games?

BeejiveIM is $6.99 this week, down from $9.99. Lowest price it's been according to apptism. I remember when it was called Jivetalk and people were paying $50 on blackerry haha. BB app prices were out of line before the app store came around, still might be actually.

BeeJiveIM is not great. That said, I use it daily and it's sadly probably still the best option for AIM on the iPhone... BeeJive's biggest problem is that it's slow to launch and hop into a conversation if the conversation is long (has been open for a week or so). It also mangles http/s URLs if they have @s in them, which is pretty much every flickr link you'll find.

I hear the newest version of the official AIM client sucks less than it once did, but I can't vouch for that.

Have never spent more than .99 for an app but I might bite on Beejive today. I am scared of breaking the .99 mark because I am afraid I won't be able to stop buying apps anymore

I only use AIM and AIM's free iphone app works decently.

Doom Resurrection, the on rails Doom shooter, has dropped to $2.99 temporarily.

Picked up Beneath a Steel Sky, that 8-bit thing, MGS Touch and Dungeon Hunter.
Basically, I'm a sucker for everything mentioned here that's not a tower-defense game (never tried 'em, I'll wait for Zombies/Plants).

My action/scifi novel, Still Man Fights, is available in paperback and e-book form at Amazon.com.

My new travelogue, Japan Chronicles: of Rock Gods and J-Pop Idols, is also on Amazon.com.

There are a lot of quality apps beyond the 99¢ realm. Beejive is one of them.

I bought it at $9.99 back when push notifications were first being implemented, and I find that it is an app that I feel I have used enough to have been "paid for." I can't seem to say that about many of my 99¢ purchases.

Has anyone used a Gen 1 iPod Touch and then a current gen iPod Touch and could comment on the wifi speed? Are app purchases and updates any faster? I have a airport extreme 802.11n network. The touch works fine but updates can be sluggish at times.

yeah the iphone style for this site is disgustingly gimped

Really? because it's one of only a couple forums that I find are actually legible on mobile safari. Even going landscape, the text is too small on other sites.

The layout is fine, its the functionality that's gimped. No User CP, no way to see subscribed threads, etc etc. For basic viewing of recent threads, it does the job but it certainly leaves something to be desired in terms of site navigation.

yeah, go to xsellize's forum and check it out on the iphone..it is done pretty well


I got Monopoly and like it a LOT..it is done really well.

Havent played enough of Ice Age to properly say whether it is worth a purchase or not.

Cabby is pretty decent but the controls take a sec to get used too and it is too easy to crash.

Implode is very fun. Like it a lot.

Montezuma 2 is like bejeweled on speed with tons of power ups .. loving it

Got Beejive and I cannot believe how good it is, really worth the $6.99 I paid for it. I know there are a lot of great apps that cost more than .99 but I just didn't want to cross that line. Now that I have it's going to be hard to stop myself from buying some of these more "expensive" apps on impulse...

Only problem with Beejive is that I not infrequently get logged off of one of my Yahoo Messenger accounts and then I can't log back in within Beejive - I have to go to the website and log in to fix it. Also there are some quirky things about creating contacts for some services. In some cases it doesn't work like you expect. Otherwise, though, a very nice app and definitely worth the $10 I paid for it... if you use IM services. One especially nice feature is that they provide free hosting for pictures and videos so you can IM videos and photos to people by just sending them a link. I took advantage of that pretty extensively on a vacation this past summer.

Star Rangers is on sale - 40% off to $2.99. Their LITE version came through the store today as well. Fans of Star Raiders will recognize this one - great 3D space shooter/strategy game. http://appshopper.co...es/star-rangers
It's a pretty new, undiscovered gem.

Doom is definately worth it for that price, that's what I got it at awhile back ... there's just never enough horror games are there?

Is anyone else having issues with Garters & Ghouls? It just keeps crashing on me, usually when I go into a shop but not everytime. I like the game do far other than that and the fact that you lose your weapon when you walk over a different one. One other minor grip is that she doesn't face the direction you're walking when you're not shooting, but most of these style of games do that ... and yes they all bug the crap outta me. :lol:
