Weekly Time Waster - ‘Star Trek Trexels II’

Written by Matt Fern

We've all wanted to control our own spaceships. Just admit it. Ever since we first voyaged into space, we’ve been all about imagining could possibly be out in the universe. All the way from the adventures of Captain Kirk and Spock in “Star Trek,” the survival of Ripley in “Alien”and the slick getaways of Han and Chewie in the Millennium Falcon. Well, you can finally get that chance to command a ship and crew in “Star Trek Trexels II.”

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Happy Glass’

Written by Matt Fern

I don't really know how I stumbled upon “Happy Glass.” It just kind of popped up as a “recommended game” in my app store. I don't know why it was recommended to me; I never really play games of this caliber, nor have I played anything close to it before. But it turns out that “Happy Glass” was SO out of the box as far as my gaming habits were concerned that it hooked me.

Weekly Time Waster - ‘Grand Prix Story 2’

Written by Matt Fern

One of my favorite cartoons as a kid was “Speed Racer.” It was funny and had so many cool moments; you always hoped that Speed was going to come out on top of every race. He had the coolest car and the coolest team to back him up. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a racing team to manage and build cool cars like Speed Racer’s?

Well, we’re in luck.

“Grand Prix Story 2” sees you as the coach of a racing team. You’re in charge of hiring and firing the drivers and mechanics, training them and using all your resources to develop the best cars you possibly can to compete against other racing teams around the world. The granddaddy of all the races your team competes in is the Grand Prix. As you win races, you get cash to help your team develop further. You can upgrade your racing team’s buildings and facilities to help your racing dynasty grow. You also will gain fans and sponsors, who give your team gifts and upgrades as you win.

You must think strategically, as the wrong car or driver for the wrong race will cost your team massively. You can’t win all races with a single car or driver. The racing part itself is mostly simulation, with you controlling just a few things with ease!

“Grand Prix Story 2” is a heck of a racing simulation game and it deserves a spot on your app list. “Grand Prix Story 2” is available for free on the Android and IOS stores.

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.
