Windows Vista screencast: Bundled Games

One of the key selling points of Windows Vista and the likely cause of the next economic depression is the freshly updated bundled games. Apart from the new cinematic-quality card appearances and WETA-rendered table backgrounds, the most exciting addition to the Windows gaming experience is the end-game animation. Just playing the games out of curiosity was totally worth it. Imagine how rewarding it would be if you were a professional player.

I made three screencasts of the two most popular Windows games: Solitaire, Spider Solitaire as well as everyone’s upcoming favorite, Purple Place. The speed of the video during my intense play session has been sped up to maintain your sanity and hide my n00bish gaming skills.

  1. Wow, everything looks great. Alas, I am saddened by Steve Irwin’s as well. I saw that post-it on your desktop. In fact, I was still sleeping when my twin-brother who-looks-nothing-like-me came into my room, and he said “Crikey bro!” I was like, oooo-kaaay. Then he said Steve died, and I promptly turned on my computer and saw it all over the internet. Man, that seriously is a bummer. :( Anyways, Solitaire in Vista looks very sharp! I like the new look of the royal cards.
