It’s official: The Mac App Store is here, and with it has come a whole host of games for the Mac connoisseur. In the flurry of opening day, one game stood out to us as something that would be fun to try out, yet casual enough to pick up and play any time.

It’s called Garage Inc., and it’s the story of a nice guy in Chicago who decides he wants to open an automotive repair business. But then the mob gets involved and, well, we’ll tell you the rest after the break!

Today we’ll be offering a quick overview of a new iPhone app, Balloons, that caught my eye as a really interesting form of social interaction. Balloons allows you to take a photo or write a message, attach it to a virtual balloon, then send it off around the world. It can then be “caught” by someone in a completely different part of the globe.

When caught, you can add extra content to a message and send it back off into the sky! It’s a fascinating concept, and a particularly unique way of interacting with other iPhone users around the world.

Big air, big mountains, and lots of snow, are some of the things that Shaun White loves. Thanks to Ubisoft, he is happy to share them with us. Shaun has proven time and time again his skills on the slopes and now his red-haired fame has gotten him to make his first attempt at videogames ala Tony Hawk. In Shaun White Snowboarding, Ubisoft has crafted a well-balanced blend of both realistic and arcade styles of gameplay in a free-roam atmosphere. While seemingly a strange mix, the end result gives a rather decent experience – especially if you are an extreme sports fan.

Like many recent extreme sport games you start out as a rookie and work your way up to soon become a glorified champ; don’t get scared of the huge masses of snow though, Shaun has your back at all times. At the very beginning of the game, Shaun becomes your mentor as he pledges to unleash your inner snowboarding beast. To successfully complete Shaun’s course, you must collected several coins scattered across all four mountains, and complete different sets of challenges. Once you’ve tackled those slopes and collected the precious coins, you will face the “Flying Tomato” himself.
