The Best of Big Download: May 11-17

May 18, 2009

With E3 now just two weeks away the rumors and the announcements will be coming in quickly. Big Download is on top of things on the PC gaming side and we will have extensive coverage of the show. But until then we will have some pre-E3 features alongside our regular news and feature coverage. Let’s look at the past seven days on the site.

Exclusive features

  • Countdown to E3 2009: We begin our series of pre-E3 features this week with an overall primer to the show and our wish list of first person shooter games we would like to see at E3.
  • First anniversary contests: You still have time to win one of 10 $25 game codes from Nexon America in celebration of Big Download’s first anniversary.
  • Mac Monday: Our weekly Macintosh feature reviews the Popcap tower defense game Plants Vs Zombies.
  • Boot Disk: Our retro games feature is about the Interplay 3D FPS Descent.
  • Big Ideas: Our weekly game theme column looks at why non-gamers still see games as juvenile and even harmful
  • Freeware Friday: Our weekly free game column takes a look at the free engineering-based game Infiniminer.
