Zelda: Twilight Princess

About a year ago, I stopped playing Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (the GameCube version). I had already logged about 200 hours (I know, I'm slow). That was enough.

Later, we got our Wii so I occupied myself playing Super Mario Galaxy and Super Paper Mario on the Wii. Yes, I'm definitely into the Nintendo franchise titles, like Zelda and Mario, but I digree.

Point being, I picked up playing Twilight Princess the other night, and I'm almost through. I now need to face Ganondorf, or Ganon, or whoever he is, and that should be it. Point being (again with that phrase), I like good games and Twilight Princess is an excellent video game. Perhaps one of the best of the Zelda series, and they have all been exemplary games for their times.

Yet, games are not confined to platforms like Nintendo or Playstation (although we do have a decent collection of platform video games for X-Box, Nintendo, Sony Playstation and others). They're also available, in great fecundity, for your computer. And Software Supply Group has added a bunch of great game titles just recently.

For example: Atari Anniversary Edition. I love the classics. This incredible compilation features 12 of the most popular games from the first video arcades, and an assortment of new features to go along with them. Enjoy the classic style gaming thrills of Asteroids and Asteroids Deluxe. Blast away in Centipede, Millipede and Gravitar. Use your reflexes and aiming skills in Battlezone, Crystal Castles, Super Breakout, Missile Command, Tempest and Warlords. It even includes Pong, the first commercially-released video game ever. How cool is that?

But we have plenty of other titles. Like Secret Agent Barbie. And Seven Kingdoms II. Even The DaVinci Code, from Take 2 Interactive. And The Grand Theft Auto Classic Collection.

We've also added a number of Entertainment Software Titles, a wide selection of Educational Titles, Graphics Software and more.

Well, that's it for now. More later!

More Nostalgia: The Atari 52000

Do you remember the Atari 5200? I do.

And I even remember that Activision Pitfall commercial with Jack Black. Oh, yes. I do.

Yes, I'm a very nostalgic guy. That's why I love the fact we still sell Microsoft Windows NT, and for only $19.95. And we've got Microsoft Windows 95 for $17.49 and the Windows 95 Upgrade back for only $2.92! At that price, you could buy a dozen and still have change left over for coffee!

We still carry the Microsoft Office 2000 products. And Microsoft Office XP 2002. And more. It's cool. Some come on buy, and pick up your little bit of Microsoft History from Software Supply Group today.

Twoogie Let's You Twitter, Doogie Howser Style

Yes, it's true. You can finally Twitter like Doogie Howser with Twoogie, a Twitter Interface that makes everything like you're typing into Doogie Howser's PS/2. Go to Twoogie.Com to experience it, right now. 

Takes me even further back, to 1983, when I used to watch Whiz Kids on CBS. Man, I loved that show.

In other news, SnaggStuff is a great place to get deals. There's a new deal every day at 11:11 CST (approximately), and it's always a good one. I'd showcase one, but it'll be a new deal tomorrow. So . . . bookmark SnaggStuff.com and snag yourself a deal.

Windows 7 Beta Download Is Now (or Was) Available

Windows 7 Beta has been made available, with only 2.5 million download slots. The way I read it, that's only for today, and on Friday everybody can download it. But I'm not sure.

What I am sure about is that you having to be upgrading Windows Vista SP1 to install the Beta. If you aren't, no dice. So, go buy an inexpensive copy of Windows Vista real quick, and you'll be set.

When the Windows 7 Download is available, you should be able to get it here.

There is a Windows 7 Review from Computer World here.

Windows Seven is Closer, But Not Yet Here

Since last time I talked about Windows 7, Microsoft has put up a preview page (or, at least, I can find it now).

Will it be better than Windows Vista? Sure. Will it solve all the security problems and viruses and bot-nets in the world? No. But, the fact is, you could do something about now, whether you're using Windows Vista, Windows XP, or something even older (though, unless it's Windows 2000, you really shouldn't be).

But, no matter what, you've still need virus protection. Thank goodness we happen to have a great Internet Security Suite, AVG 8.0 Internet Security (OEM) for only $15.55. As of this posting. Yay for us! And lucky for you, if you don't already have an Anti-Virus Suite.

It's historically been less bloated and more efficient than Symantec Nortion 2009 Internet Security (which we have for only $19.95, if you want that) and 10 bucks cheaper than Kaspersky 2009 AntiVirus 3 User Full Version OEM.
