Weekly Time Waster - ‘Hide Online’

Written by Matt Fern

One of my fondest memories as a young child was playing hide-and-seek around the neighborhood with my friends. We would hide in various places and one of us would try to find everybody. We'd hide anywhere. In the woods between houses, behind sheds; we probably made some people angry running through their yards!

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Westworld’

Written by Matt Fern

If you have HBO, you might have caught a few episodes of the TV show “Westworld”. This show is about a Wild West-style theme park where guests can pay to experience the old west in a controlled environment with lifelike androids populating the town. In this theme park, guests are allowed to follow their own personal narratives and dark desires without any penalty, as long as they don’t harm another human. They are allowed to murder, steal and even be friends with the theme park androids.

And now we have a game version!

Weekly Time Waster - ‘ARK: Survival Evolved’

Written by Matt Fern

We’ve all watched “Jurassic Park” and pictured ourselves trying to survive amongst the dinosaurs. Maybe you’ve even imagined yourself riding a dinosaur into the sunset, as a dinosaur would make the coolest pet that you could possibly have. Well, what if I told you that you could finally attempt to live that dream?

This week, we dive into the world of “ARK: Survival Evolved” to find out if you have what it takes to rule the dinosaurs.

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Silly Walks’

Written by Matt Fern

Here at The Maine Edge, we sure do dig the weird stuff. We find it and we soak it in and we write about it for your reading pleasure. Well, this week, I stumbled upon a time waster that fits in with our love of the weird.

We’ve all seen the Tom Hanks movie “Cast Away” at this point. Man survives a plane crash and wakes up on a desolate island. He has to survive whilst going crazy from being alone. None of us could ever imagine being in such a situation … but we could certainly play a video game about it!

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Jurassic World Alive’

Written by Matt Fern

With the new “Jurassic World” movie hitting screens worldwide, it was only fitting that a game based on the beloved movie franchise would pop up on my radar. Only it wasn't the type of game I was expecting.

It sure was a nice weekend. There was both lots of sun and warmth outside and lots of entertainment on television at night. Over the weekend, I found myself re-watching some of the “Band of Brothers” series. Afterwards, I felt the inclination to find a game that would let me be a WWII armchair general, or at least a war hero. In my search, I stumbled upon “Frontline Commando: D-Day.”

Maritime piracy has been around since the 1500s and it certainly has resulted some of the greatest stories we’ve ever been told. Tales such as that of the crazed Blackbeard and his band of bloodthirsty pirates, participating in ship-to-ship combat, stealing gold and other valuable items. Ships flying the “Jolly Roger” to strike fear in those they chose to prey upon. We’ve even procured the beloved “Pirates of the Caribbean” series from the roots of piracy and its many tales.

This week, we waste some time as pirates in “Pirate Tales: Battle for the Treasure.”

When people hear the words “Friday the 13th,” they think of two things.

The first could be the actual date itself and the stigma attached to it, where you avoid black cats and other various bad luck inducing events that can happen on that day. The other would be the hit horror series we have all come to love with our favorite big screen slasher Jason Voorhees.

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Fishing Strike’

Written by Matt Fern

Spring is here and so is fishing season. Some of us might not have had the time to venture out onto the glistening water to relax in a day of fishing just yet. In the meantime, I may have found an answer for those fishermen.
