Rated 14+, Privates, is a Zombie Cow Studios shooter game developed and released last August 2010. In the game, you lead a bunch of marines down, er, private parts to eradicate traces of sexual diseases. If you find battling chlamydia and herpes down the fallopian tube as interesting, then read on. The game is an unusual take on biology class, that's for sure. The game was rumored to be released on Xbox Live Indiegames, however, a spokesperson for Xbox has confirmed that they haven't received the submission yet. If reports online are to be believed about the content, he added, that it would probably not make the guidelines they have for sexual and explicit content in their games. Well, Xbox or no Xbox, at least you can enjoy this game for free download. Happy hunting!
Relative newcomers, Absent Feet, has come out with their 5 track short album, Soonrise, through Jamendo. The album is filled with pop rock tracks that resound with slightly alternative pop vocals.

Definitely an album that won't disappoint pop rockers out there.

Attack of the Paper Zombies might seem like just another zombie game (and yes, the basic premise of kill-all-zombies is there) but it features pretty unique graphics and a nice system. Developed by IndieBird (Alex Vostrov), the game is quite simple but very entertaining to play. The game is an RTS game that sees you leading a band of space marines that have to fight off hordes of space zombies. It features graphics made to look like highschool scribble on graph paper; giving off that nice old school or classroom vibe to it. Despite its simplicity, Attack of the Paper Zombies is a fun game that'll find you blasting your way through thousands of red dot zombies in space as you try and reclaim their hive.

Spanish singer and songwriter, Maria Rodes, has released her latest album, Sin Tecnica. Now, I know that you might not want to listen to an album where English isn't the main language, but trust me, this is a worthy album. Maria Rodes creates folkpop indie acoustic tracks with a slightly alternative edge. Her voice is beautiful and her compositions and melodies are very pretty. Her tracks masquerade in simplicity yet are very rich and diverse.
