A Million Ways to Die in the West has a fun little promo game out now. The point is to get as many sheep as you can to Albert Stark in Old Stump. It starts off like Oregon Trail but has aspects of other retro games like Frogger and Donkey Kong (dang tumbleweed killed Bob). You can find it here. Whether you think the movie is going to be good or bad, go ahead and give the game a try. You really have nothing to lose – except a bunch of sheep.

Final Fantasy VII Re-Release Hits PC Today

Want some more Cloud/Aeris/Tifa action? How about some more stereotypical “Angry Black Man” Barret?

Good news, PC owners… the digital re-release of Final Fantasy VII is live. Get it right here for just $10.

It’s an NES. And SNES. And N64. And Gameboy.
