If you’re looking for a way to snag some sweet deals and support RPad.TV then kindly hit the banner above for Amazon’s “Countdown to Black Friday” deals.

Anyway, good luck with your deal hunting!

Win a KRE-O Star Trek USS Enterprise Construction Set

My buddy at CuteMonster is having a contest for the super-cool KRE-O Strek Trek USS Enterprise Construction Set. Since many of you are Star Trek nerds and you should all be LEGO nerds, this is something you should enter. (And yes, I know this is a KRE-O toy and not a LEGO toy, but I’m using LEGO the same way many people use Coke as a general term for soda.) This Star Trek toy is totally cool! I’d love to win one for the price of free. I wonder if you can buy extra packs of red-shirted Starfleet officers to use as fodder….

Four Free iOS Games For the Holidays

Are you looking to buy yourself a Christmas (the commercial holiday, not the religious one) present, but are short on cash? If so, then you’ll be happy to learn that there are four iOS games that are free for a limited time. The first chapter of Walking Dead: The Game is sure to scare you, as well as vex you with some tough decisions. Avengers Initiative is a fun brawler that stars Captain American and The Incredible Hulk. ARC Squadron is a space shooter that boasts some really impressive graphics. Last, but probably the most appropriate for this time of the year, is Santa Rockstar, which is a Rock Band-style game featuring Kris Kringle.

Check out the iTunes descriptions to see how long these games will be free for (or just download them now). If you happen to pick up any of these freebies, please let me know what you think of them in the comments section.
