Five awesome indie games for the price of... whatever you want.Five awesome indie games for the price of... whatever you want.

Well, this is pretty neat treat for a Monday; you can net yourself five great indie games at whatever price you want and proceeds go to charity (and the devs). I've been hearing great things about these games so this is pretty much a no-brainer for me. And yes, you should pay more than a penny for these.  Thanks to Ant for the heads up.

Google intends to open its TV platform, which is based on its Android operating system for smartphones, to software developers. The company hopes the move will spur the same outpouring of creativity that consumers have seen in applications for cellphones.

Microsoft pulls the curtain back on Internet Explorer 9.Microsoft pulls the curtain back on Internet Explorer 9.

The good news is that there will be better support for web standards and a brand new JavaScript engine that promises to improve overall speed and page loading times. Bad news is that it's still Internet Explorer. You can take an early version of IE9 for a test drive on the other side of the click.

Steam distribution service for gaming officially coming to the Mac platform.Steam distribution service for gaming officially coming to the Mac platform.

After some very well placed teasers last week, Valve has predictably pulled the curtain bac k on Steam for Mac gamers. Aside from the distribution platform, there will also be Mac-native versions of several their popular games coming in the very near future (next month) as well.

There are currently over a thousand games on the Steam distribution system that Mac users may get access to sooner than later. Now you just need to find yourself a Mac with a decent enough graphics card to play some of these fine games (sadly, my wimpy MacBook Intel GMA card will most likely not cut it).

Ten amazing viewing platforms from all over the world for you to gawk at.Ten amazing viewing platforms from all over the world for you to gawk at.

One of these years I'll get around to doing some form of a vacation/family trip that includes a 'skywalk' of some kind on the itinerary. My choices here seem to be limited to the Grand Canyon, Wisconsin, and Chicago. I'll let you all know how I make out.

LucasArts pulls the curtain back on new puzzle game.LucasArts pulls the curtain back on new puzzle game.

An interesting looking puzzle/platformer coming to XBLA and PC this October. Have a look at some gameplay footage that was recently posted. It's so nice to see LucasArts churning out games that are not entirely Star Wars related.
