Some days it's tough to settle on a single deal. Hence the creation of "three-deal Thursdays." And sometimes "five-deal Fridays." But Wednesdays? Never. That's because there's no number that starts with W -- and I'm all about the alliteration. (You didn't realize you were dealing with a grammar nerd, did you?)
Anyway, today I've got three pretty sweet deals, including a couple items I've never featured before. Hit the comments and let me know what you think of them.1. A sexy all-in-one desktop

Hardest Game Ever 2 for Android and iOS is a pack of several reaction- and time-based mini-challenges in the form of wacky, everyday activities. Such activities range from scooping ice cream to running to the bathroom without falling to your death.
Each play per mini-game requires a "star," the game's own currency. Think of it as an arcade credit. And yes, the game immediately starts to reek of a freemium model, but to its credit it's actually quite fun.
The challenges aren't all that difficult at first, but the games start to become exponentially harder … Read more
Jim Rash and Nat Faxon have the creative synergy that collaborators kill for. Although Rash is famous for his Dean Pelton role on NBC's "Community" and Faxon, for starring on Fox's "Ben and Kate" as well as film roles in "Zookeeper," "Bad Teacher," and "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story," when the two work together, it's Oscar-worthy. The two won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for co-writing "The Descendants," in 2012.
Thankfully, the duo have joined forces once again, this time to write … Read more

If you're among those fans, or you just like a good high-speed race against the clock, you'll be glad to know Colin McRae Rally is now available for iOS.
