Namco-Bandai Distributing Games through Facebook.

1 min read


Facebook is the bane of the corporate world. It unnecessarily uses ridiculous amounts of bandwidth, and wastes many paid for man-hours. All so you can “poke” somebody you haven’t spoken to in years. Namco-Bandai are vying for a few of those wasted hours – they’re releasing two of their beloved classics on the web-based platform.

Both Pac-Man and Dig-Dug will be available for download through the platform. While not directly playable through facebook, the downloaded games will do stat-tracking and publish your achievements within the games to your Facebook status. the first two levels of each game will be free – but should you wish to continue playing you’ll have to pony up $9.99.

Would any of YOU pay 96.5114819 South African Rands to play either of those?

It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
