Free Alien Swarm PC game from Valve
Alien Swarm is a game release from a group of talented designers at Valve. Available free of charge, the game thrusts players into an epic bug hunt featuring a unique blend of co-op play and squad-level tactics. With your friends, form a squad of four distinct IAF Marine classes.
My husband and I downloaded this game and had quite a bit of fun with it for a while. Our older kids also downloaded Alien Swarm for their computers. If you like PC games, you should check this one out.

Free iPad Game for Cats
Check out this free iPad Game for Cats by Hiccup. We have 5 cats and they all enjoy it. I have even seen all of them gathered around the iPad on the floor taking turns chasing the laser. Buttons, my son’s 9 month old kitten, absolutely loves it! In fact, if I take out my iPad for my own use, he immediately jumps in my lap and tries to play it. He acts like it’s his toy and becomes very excited. His antics over this game are absolutely hilarious. Buttons will paw at it and jump in the air for half an hour at a time. Kittens need to be entertained or they become bored. While fun, you may not have time to play with them when they want to play. This makes for a bored cat who can become destructive.
When Buttons seems like he is looking for trouble, I just break out my iPad and turn on Game for Cats. It’s entertaining for him and me. The free version of the game comes with a laser pointer that the cat can bat around on the screen. When they tag it, it makes a jingle bell like sound and scores points for the cat. Obviously, the cat doesn’t care about the score, but it’s fun to compare your cat’s score with your friends’ cats’ scores. Game for Cats has an option to boast about how good your cat is by sharing on Facebook.
Game for Cats also offers an upgrade to get a butterfly and a mouse screen. However, those are not free. The upgrade is only $1.99, so that’s not too bad, but the basic version is free to use forever. My cats played with the laser for months before I decided to get the mouse and butterfly versions. Buttons just enjoyed the laser so much, I wanted to see what he would do with the mouse. He adores it, as well, and actually looks for the mouse under the iPad when the mouse runs off the screen.
Buttons enjoys this game so much and gets completely carried away. For that reason, I don’t suggest this game to anyone that doesn’t have the new iPad with the glass. My iPad 3 has the gorilla glass and has never been scratched, but previous versions may be prone to claw scratches due to the design of screen.
Oh! It’s also a distraction for teenage girls, apparently. My son’s friend found the game and played it herself for an hour. LOL.

CollageIt Free Photo Collage software
Check out this free photo collage software I found from CollageIt. I used it to make this simple collage from photos of our recent Disney trip. The top left is from Magic Kingdom. My son relaxing in the hotel on the bottom left and the image on the right was the view from our hotel room.
This program is great for sharing your photos from your iPad and iPod. CollageIt is so easy to use, too! Import photos from your camera roll or photo albums and select the template you want desire. They have a Mosaic, Grid, Centered or Manual template. Then just save it to your device. You can also share it to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Flickr with just the click of the button. You can also send the files via email. All of the templates allow for customization as well. You can change the widths, heights, borders, colors and choose whether you want your collage to have a solid or gradient background. If you are really into customization, the Manual template allows you to start from scratch and build your very own collage.
You can use anywhere from 1 to 9 photos in your collage.
I think I am going to make a collage of all the free samples I have received next! LOL.
