Media: last chance to watch all South Park episodes for free, dozens of hit iTunes albums for $8 each, more

south-park-stream

Update (7/16 12:15pm): Amazon has a slew of digital albums for $5 each: Imagine Dragons, Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, Eminem, Drake, and more

Everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed kids have moved exclusively to Hulu as part of a blockbuster 3-year deal reportedly worth more than $80 million dollars.

Up until September 24th (the premier of Season 18), the entire back catalog of South Park episodes will continue to be available for free for Hulu members and at South Park Studios. After this date, only Hulu Plus members ($8/month) will have access to older episodes. However, both Hulu and South Park Studios will offer free next-day access to new episodes and a revolving selection of classics.

The bottom line is that if you don’t want to pay for a Hulu Plus membership or buy the Blu-rays/DVDs, then you only have until late September to get your fill of South Park for free.

OTTTD goes free on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch (Reg. $5)

OTTTD-July-Free Game of the Month-IGN-iOS-04

After a bit of a wait, IGN has now announced OTTTD as July’s Free Game of the Month. Available on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, free promotional codes are available now. Regularly priced at $4.99, the game has dropped to $2.99 on the App Store previously, but this marks this first time we have seen the iOS version go free.

OTTTD (or Over The Top Tower Defense) is not your average tower defense game. It blends elements of real time strategy games, tower defense and giant, flying, undead sharks. While described as “anything-goes TD game that doesn’t take itself seriously,” there is an intense and tactical blend of RD and RTS gameplay at its core.

With additional game modes on the way, there are already 20 story missions, a unique and meaningful tempa-death system and boss battles, as well as a character class and leveling system. You can check out some screenshots and the gameplay trailer below.
