Keep up-to-date with all the latest video game releases! For this week's special Kidzworld news, we talk about the new version of GameTap that runs right in your web browser.

GameTap is Back!

You may already know about GameTap, but if you don't, it's a service online that gives you access to a practically endless list of games, old and new, to play. For $10 a month, of 33% off for a year, you can download and play such a huge range of video games, your mind will likely boggle. Yes, yes, in fact I'm sure it will. From Tomb Raider to Civilization IV to Fable, Psychonauts, and Galaxian, it's insane how many games they host on this thing. Most of the games were released a while ago, but there are also some new series, like the Sam & Max adventure games, which are my personal favorite, from the same folks who made the Wallace & Gromit games.

Ever Wanted to Play Galaxian Forever?

There just aren't that many arcades any more. But if you've ever been to one with some of the classic games like Galaga, Pac-Man, Frogger, or Dig Dug, GameTap's got 'em all. The best part: You don't have to pony up the coins to play. You play them right in your browser with no issues, which is like classic gaming heaven. Even if you just want to see what Pong was like, you can give it a shot here. Don't expect Pong to be that much fun, though.


What to Watch Out For...

There are only a few issues that you need to make sure you're aware of: First of all, this is a subscription, not a single payment. You either have to keep paying $10 a month, about the same as the fee for a typical MMO like World of Warcraft, or pay a little more than the cost of a PS3/Xbox 360 game for a whole year. This means that the games you download aren't actually on your computer, they have to go through the internet. If you aren't subscribed anymore, you can't play any more. It's really cheap, but still, you have to stay subscribed. Also, you won't be able to play if your internet is down. This could be really frustrating for some people. If you don't have an internet connection, and hopefully a pretty fast internet, this service isn't really for you. Still, GameTap is an awesome way to play both the classics and some new hits.
