CCleaner v5.0 with a new look, new tools and a price discount

The new version of CCleaner v5.0 is out with some new tools and a new look. I’m all for the new tools, cleaning power and performance increase, but can we please stop following the Microsoft design of making apps look like Windows 8. The Metro UI looks like the vomitous mass from a 5 year old with a box 5 colored crayons. It’s a hideous UI and people really need to stop cloning it.

But that aside, the new version of CCleaner 5 is out and soon there will be a new Defraggler. I wouldn’t be surprised if Speccy and Recuva also got a new release, even if it is for the UI.

With the releases come a new coupon. If you want to buy the whole suite of tools, you can get CCleaner Professional Plus, which is what I have. It’s the tools bundled together at a discount price and you can use coupon code NOV14 to drop the price even more. You can pick up all the tools for $31.96. That’s a good deal for 4 system tools.

Black Friday Deals for O&O Software Products. 50% Off Entire Catalog

The Black Friday Specials are coming in faster than I can read/delete them. A couple of good ones caught my eye like the entire O&O Software catalog on sale for 50% Off. That is a pretty sweet deal considering it covers O&O Defrag, O&O DiskImage, O&O SafeErase and others. These guys make some really good software not only to keep your system running smoothly, but to resurrect it from the dead if something goes wrong. O&O DiskImage is a personal favorite of mine to take snapshots of the entire drive so all I have to do is boot from the Recovery CD and restore the image. I’ve actually had to do this more than once and it’s incredibly easy to use and restored all my files perfectly. I currently have DiskImage cloning the drive in my main machine and putting the image file on a data disk.

Click the link below and add whatever items you want to the cart, each will get the sale price.

You can also still get the Autumn Bundle which includes:

O&O CleverCache
O&O AutoBackup
O&O MediaRecovery
O&O SafeErase

If you don’t need all those or already have some, go for the mix and match option.

Stardock Discount Code – 50% Off – STARDOCK50

Here’s a little Thanksgiving treat for you. Stardock is offering a pretty hefty 50% off coupon good for ALL their products. This can be used for games, individual products as well as renewals and themes. This can be used to get an ObjectDesktop subscription or it can be used to get cool programs like WindowsBlinds or Start8, programs that are really a must have to fix the hideous UI elements of the Metro UI in Windows 8.

Just add the items to your cart and use STARDOCK50 as the coupon code. You’re good to go.

I have Windowblinds and Start8 on my laptop for Windows 8 and it covers up that terrible UI and gives you something much better to work with. Too bad Microsoft doesn’t just stuff Windowblinds in the OS, it would make things a lot easier on all of us.

SpinTire for Sale on Steam – 40% Off

image Here’s something for the holidays (yes, Halloween is a holiday!) SpinTires is on sale at Steam for 40% Off. This brings the price down to $17.99 from the regular $30. That’s not too shabby.

If you haven’t seen SpinTires, it’s an offroad adventure full of heavy duty military trucks converted to the logging business. The goal is to explore the map, carry out tasks (such as loading lumber) and not get stuck. The getting stuck part is probably the hardest to avoid.

Now, before we get too far, this is indeed a slow paced game. This isn’t racing. Not only is the top speed a mere crawl since you’re in an 8 wheeled transport rig, but the terrain is insanely difficult, full of trees, rivers and mud that will try to swallow you whole. The countryside will blur by at a blistering 8-10mph if you’re lucky. But that’s not the point.

It’s all about exploring the landscape and testing your mettle as a driver and the power of your rig. Did you pick the right truck for the job? Do you have enough fuel? Do you even know where you’re going? Expect some long hours behind the wheel where you put in a slow, but deliberate pace.

I’m not sure this qualifies as a casual game, but that’s in the eye of the beholder. I missed getting this on Kickstarter, but the Tech Demo was loads of fun. I haven’t bought the full version yet, but with this sale, I think that’s about to change. If you’re looking for some offroad fun and challenges, SpinTires might be just what you’re looking for.

More Steam Early Access Titles – The Forest and Killing Floor

My list of Early Access games just keeps growing and growing. I just added The Forest to my collection. I’m not normally one to play these survival style games, but this looks quite appealing and certainly fits with the Halloween season. The reviews also make it seem quite humorous and bawdy so I’m willing to give it a try. Plus, I like supporting Early Access projects.

Another Halloween themed title made it into my cart as well – The Killing Floor – Complete Bundle. Now this just looks nut. It looks like all out carnage and mayhem with a ton of DLC to add to the experience. The whole bundle is mere pennies on the dollar so it’s a really good purchase. I’m actually quite terrible at this style of game as well so I have no illusions that I will be dead time and time again. But it’s all about the experience isn’t it?

And finally, a silly little title called Count of Monster Disco. It’s from Train Simulator and just looks so damn silly. It’s a Halloween themed train so I couldn’t pass it up. There are plenty of haunted stories involving trains so this could be fun. And it was only a couple of dollars so what could possibly go wrong?

I’m still working my way through Zombie Driver, but man cannot live on zombie carnage alone. I’ll have to get these titles installed and see how I fair. I’m going to go out on a limb and say I end up dead.

But these are all on sale for a limited time so move quick if you want them.
