These are the Free Games on Amazon Luna for Prime Members in May

Amazon is continuing it’s 3rd month of offering Prime members the ability to play select games for free through the Amazon Luna cloud gaming service. For the entire month of May, Prime members can play the motorcycle racing game Ride 4, the first-person sword slashing game Ghost Runner, the stunt driving game Monstor Truck Championship, and the classic arcade shooter Metal Slug 3. Amazon is also adding a few new games in May for those that are subscribed to the various Luna channels. Luna+ Channel subscribers can now play Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania, Retro Channel subscribers are gaining Capcom Arcade Stadium, and Family Channel can now play Get Packed. Remember, you can now use a smart phone as a virtual controler to play these Luna games if you don’t have a physical gamepad. It’s certainly not ideal, but good enough to at least see how good your connection to the service is before shelling out for something like the Luna Controller.

The exact dates for Prime Day 2022 have not yet been announced, but, whenever they are, you can surely expect to find the best deals on Amazon devices during the big sales event.

New promo code drops Fire TV Stick 4K Max to $34.99 for select customers — Lowest Price Ever

A few weeks ago, Amazon started a promotion where qualifying customers can get the Fire TV Stick 4K Max for $34.99 using promo code ADDFTV. That promotion is still active for those that qualify, but now Amazon has added a second promo code that gives the same discount for a different set of qualifying customers. If the first promo code didn’t work for you, try entering UP4KMAX at checkout to see if you qualify for the new promotion. Both codes will knock the Fire TV Stick 4K Max down to $34.99 if your Amazon account qualifies, which matches the lowest price it has ever been and is a great price for Amazon’s newest and most powerful Firestick.

Update

Thanks to a comment from paul123, HSN is selling the Fire TV Stick 4K Max for $34.99 with free shipping to everyone without any coupon code needed.

Fire TV updated with new Home Screen Navigation icons and menus

A new software update is currently rolling out to Fire TV Sticks, Fire TV Cubes, and Fire TV Smart TVs that changes the main navigation menu on the Fire TV home screen. Gone are the text navigation menu items, like “Home” and “Find,” that have been part of the Fire TV interface since the beginning. In their place are new icons without any text. However, the change isn’t simply a cosmetic update as the new icons come with revamped screens to go along with them. Read more ›

Latest Echo Dot model on sale for $27.99 which is the 2nd lowest price ever

Amazon has just put the 4th-gen Echo Dot on sale for $27.99. At 44% off the retail price of $49.99, this is the second lowest price that it has ever been. The only time it has ever been cheaper was Prime Day last year when it was $3 less. This current sale even beats out the Black Friday price, which was $2 more, so if you’ve been waiting for a good price to pick one up, now is definitely the time. It’s available at this price in Charcoal (black), Glacier (white), and Twilight (blue). Alternatively, you can get the Echo Dot w/ Clock for $39.99, which is just $5 more than the lowest price it has ever been. If you have a 1st or 2nd-gen Echo Dot, this latest model sounds significantly better and is worth the upgrade, especially if you use your Echo Dot for music. Compared to the 3rd-gen Echo Dot, the newer model sounds slightly better, mostly due to the speaker pointing slightly forward instead of straight up, but not different enough to upgrade for sound quality alone.

CNN+ to shut down one month after launch

CNN+, the paid streaming service from CNN that launched less than a month ago is already dead. The cable news network has announced that the service is shutting down on April 30th. CNN+ was meant to be a companion service to the CNN cable channel, as opposed to a replacement, like most channels that launch “+” services. That clearly didn’t go over well with consumers as estimates indicate the service received only 150,000 sign-ups and was seeing only 10,000 active daily users. CNN is giving employees, hired soley for the new service, pay and benefits for the next 90 days and at least six months’ severance.
