Humble Store Singleplayer Sale Delivers The Goods

Humble Store Singleplayer Sale

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably know by now about the Humble Bundle. While the Humble Bundle is most known for its limited-time, great-value namesake, they’ve also expanded into multiple bundles and even a web store. Currently, the Humble Store is running a deal on great singleplayer games, and I didn’t want My Dpad readers to miss out on this sale. The games on sale include: • Rogue Legacy • The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth • Prison Architect • A Bird Story • Sunless Sea • To…

Windscribe: The Best VPN With A Free Option

If you spend any amount of time on a computer (and if you play video games, you most likely do), you need a virtual private network (VPN).

Even people who are excited about trying D&D for the first time can burn out during the process of creating their character, and if you’re trying to introduce the game to a group of people it can be even worse.

Zevia Soda: Your New Healthy Gamer Fuel


If you spend any amount of time playing video games, you know how hard it can be to snack and drink. You usually have two choices: cheap, unhealthy snacks like chips and soda, or healthy but expensive snacks like almonds. When it comes to drinks specifically, if you want to save money you either have to stick to soda or exclusively drink water. Don’t get me wrong, drinking water is important and can be plenty satisfying, but sometimes you want just a bit more. If you used to drink a…

Amazon Trade-In Turns Your Browser Into Gamestop

Amazon Trade-In Features

Everyone knows the feeling of going to Gamestop with a handful of games and walking away with a shiny new quarter and not much else. If you drove or took the bus it actually cost more to get there than you came away with, making it feel like even more of a ripoff. The antidote to feeling this immediate regret? Amazon Trade-In. To be clear, I haven’t tried it myself, so I’m not saying you’ll necessarily be getting a better deal from Amazon than you would Gamestop. I’m just saying…

Stay Healthy While Gaming


If you play a lot of video games, you’ve probably heard (at some point or another) about some of the health risks associated with long periods of gaming. Some of these claims can be more dubious than others, but it makes sense that people who play a lot of video games can generally lead more sedentary lifestyles than others. After all, if one of your main hobbies involves sitting for long periods of time, a sedentary lifestyle could easily follow. Does this mean you should stop playing video games? Of…
