You Must Build a Boat is a twist on match-three gaming with a dose of infinite runner. With a quest-style approach, colorful cast of characters, and definitive progression system, it continues to live on my phone.

If you visit Starbucks now, you might luck into a free copy. It’s the App Pick of the Week. For more on You Must Build a Boat, check out our previous coverage.

Alan Wake DLC Free On Xbox Live Marketplace

Alan Wake is currently available to play as a backward compatible game. If you never played it, I suggest you change that. If you’ve played it but never tackled the DLC, now is a very good time to give it a look.

The two DLC chapters, The Signal and The Writer, are both free to download. It’s not clear if this is a permanent price reduction or a limited offer, so best not to wait too long.

The DLC adds new gameplay mechanics and wraps up Alan’s story, at least for the time being. I’m not always sold on DLC’s narrative value, but I think in this case both additional chapters enhance the story.

You can grab the free DLC here and read our review of the original game for more info. The game itself is still priced at $ 19.99.

Forge Enables Free Livestreaming To YouTube & Twitch

Forge, a free PC gaming capture app, has announced livestreaming integration with YouTube and Twitch.

The app (available to download for free at forge.gg) already allows you to capture gaming footage on your PC and share it to Twitter or Facebook like the PS4 and Xbox One do. Now gamers can add livestreaming to their Forge arsenal (which can also be done to a user's Forge profile as well), and today's addition also includes the ability to alert your Twitter followers when you're live.

For more on Forge, check out Mike's hands-on impressions with the app during its beta.

 

Our Take
Does anyone have a preference between Forge and other capturing/livestreaming apps out there?
