Gamestop Buys Kongregate

Kongregate Gamestop

Kongregate, a community with a firm back bone made up of thousands upon thousands of free games, is about to get even more backing thanks to its recent fusion with gaming giant Gamestop. But will this unlikely pairing hurt the Kongregate gaming community more than it will help? And what exactly does this mean for your beloved local Gamestop?

Kongregate (or Kong for short) averages over 10 million active users with more than 23 million hours of logged game time a month, and puts forward games provided by eager young developers. Indie developers are supported by Kong not only in having a platform to present their wares to such a large community, but also by given a share in ad and transaction revenue. The owners Jim and Emily Greer wholeheartedly support this community, and do their best to give developers and gamers the best possible community for them. They also believe that Gamestop wholeheartedly support the Kong community as well.

Jack White Bemoans Downloading

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News,

Jack White says illegal downloading is ruining “the romance” of music.

The Raconteurs, White Stripes and Dead Weather star - who has just launched his own online music service, The Vault - insists obtaining tracks without permission is ruining the music industry.

“A quick look at sales figures for albums will show anyone with a brain that there’s no doubt the world has collectively decided that there is nothing wrong with taking music for free and feeling no moral conundrum about it,” White said to the BBC Newsbeat.

“Download culture isn’t a very romantic experience for the fan regarding art, it cheapens it and makes it fast forwardable, and disposable, and a lot of times ignorable. That’s a shame for a lot of art and music that isn’t getting the chance that it would if people just left the needle on the record till the end of the side or what have you.”

Download: Ultimate 90s mix from DJ Spinbad

DJ SpinbadSay goodbye to the silly 80s revival, because it’s getting old. The early 90s has been represented and celebrated at raves, but we haven’t seen the music of the 90s make it’s big comeback yet. However, DJ Spinbad may be just the man who shines a light on the 90s, rekindling interest in the decade that began almost 20 years ago. He just put out a free 90s megamix that is pretty amazing. It features music from the decade, but also splices in TV and film audio bites as well, creating an amazing 80-minute mix that anyone alive in the 90s will enjoy. You can download the free MP3 at the link below.

QTrax Music Makes its Debut

QTrax logoQTrax appears to be available with 25 to 30 million copyrighted tracks for file sharing. The free service is funded with advertising revenue that the company shares with music labels and will operate without spyware and pop-up adware. Users can exchange and download tunes, hopefully without the hassle of sites such as Limewire. QTrax then counts the number of times each song is played to compensate both artists and rights owners. USA Today reported yesterday that the coming out party was delayed after it was found that the company hadn’t quite finalized all the details, but we managed to download the beta service this morning without a hitch. We have yet to put it to a test drive, however, but we noticed that 30,000 others were utilizing the service.
