Welcome to Full Depth, your number one source for only best of video games.
Diversity in gaming!
The Bug is an animated short film created by Vimeo user Yongsub Song for the Computer Art MFA School of Visual Art. The whole concept of the video is, if video game characters have their own will, what would they be like and how would they react? Even though the plot is hard to follow, the whole concept is very interesting, showcasing a sleek-looking setting and uniquely designed characters.
Most of us find ourselves bored out of our minds at least during one point of our lives, and find ourselves looking for something online that interests us and keeps our minds working.

You can search for music, funny videos, movie trailers, and everything you could possibly think of on these video websites:
Netflix (available to you if you are currently using their service)
Tangle.com (formerly known as Godtube)
Game websites with games that you can play:
Libregamewiki (see post)
Technology websites that you cannot miss out on, especially, if you are either a nerd or a geek:

Giveaway of the Day (daily free software that normally costs money)
Evil Mad Scientist
FreeRice (see post)
