News for December 1st 2012

TestFreaks Data


Wow, it’s December already, thankfully I think I’m done shopping. I did all of mine online this year, not a thing purchased from an actual store. If you’re looking for some last minute gifts for the gamers in your life, be sure to check out the latest Humble Bundle ( there’s 11 days left and you can get seven decent THQ games and a few soundtracks for a very low price. What you pay for it of course is up to you, but remember it can go to charity so be generous at this time of the year. I was thinking about grabbing it for myself, but I already have four of the games and sadly they’re not giving separate keys for the games. I wanted to but it for the games I don’t have and then give the others I already have to my kids. Oh well.. check it out for yourself and get some games…
