You can meet a lot of girls online. Tiger Woods has been with a lot of girls. Does it not make sense that Tiger Woods golf would be online? In all seriousness PGA Tour 11 online looks fantastic and plays beautifully online even on lower end PCs.

EA is pushing forward with adding more of its sports titles into the online realm and by online I mean fully online play though the website. Console fans don’t fret because it will still be released for all consoles and even the iPhone.

With EA and Tiburons free preview you can get a firsthand look at the game and invite others to join through facebook. During the free preview open beta, players will also be able to enjoy the following new features:

Facebook Connect – Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online connects to Facebook, allowing players to invite their friends to become fans, thus earning additional in-game experience. Players are also able to publish their accomplishments to Facebook.

Golfer Progression – Players will begin their career as a beginner and by earning experience points, will climb the ranks toward becoming a golf legend.

The Cut Line – As an extra challenge, each day a target score will appear that becomes the goal for each golfer. If the user meets, or scores under the target, additional in-game experience is rewarded.

Fans, Favorites & Sponsorships – Each player will be able to acquire fans within Tiger Woods PGA TOUR Online. The more fans a player has, the more experience points are rewarded. Sponsor your friends and earn in-game money if they make the Cut Line.

Realistic Wind – Experience dynamic wind that calculates the direction and speed throughout the round, making the game more realistic and challenging.

Pro Shop – Purchase upgraded equipment with in-game earnings to help improve your customized golfer and impress friends.

Let me tell you this is one of the best golf or any sports games for that matter that I have played online. As I said even if your broadband isn’t at the highest and your PC at its most powerful you will be able to run this game well using only your browser.

When you load up for the first time it is a bit slow, but after that the game flies as if you were playing it on your favorite console. Honestly you have to check this out for yourself even if you aren’t a golf fan.

What is Allods Online?

Allods Online is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game, set in the fantasy space opera universe of Sarnaut.

It is the fourth opus of the Rage of Mages series which started in the mid-90s, conquering the minds of millions of gamers around the world, and covers over 12 years of storyline in the making.

You can choose to enter the deep storyline, puzzling out relationships between the two factions at war, races and characters, and plumbing the depths of the mysteries at work in this unique setting. Or you can focus on developing your character, maximising his abilities, crafting, getting very rare items and enchanting them via the runes system to become the best in both duels and space Astral battle ship confrontations.

Throughout the game, you will discover and fight your way in dungeons, castles and temples as a raid or as a group.

At high level, you can build your own Astral space ship and take off to explore the Astral with your party, looking for adventures, raids or if you want, become a pirate and board other ships to steal their loot. You will also discover many unique encounters such as Astral demons, ship versus ship battles, boarding other ships or even just annoying them during your journeys in the Astral.

The guild system greatly increases your opportunities and enhances your game experience in co-operative game play through specific raid encounters, some even being contested.

Whether you enjoy solo questing and discovering a world with lots of player versus environment content, or bashing other players with the player versus player mechanisms (and of course the ship versus ship in the Astral space), Allods Online is a lot of fun for all kinds of players. You can always stand aside all battles and just meet your friends in game and chitchat about whatever you like.

Allods Online no subscription fees and you can play as long as you wish. All you need is a gPotato.eu account.

Q. What is Mortal Online?

A: Mortal Online is a first-person MMORPG in an open player-controlled fantasy game world for the PC. Player versus Player (PvP), or rather Player to Player interaction plays an important part in Mortal Online as trading, learning, combat, rumors and alliances are largely dependent on communication between players.

Our approach to character creation, character progress and skills are to get away from hours and hours of pointless grinding and quickly immerse you into the community – once there, your real journey begins.
