Independent of Independence
Why go to all that trouble of celebrating when your favorite games will do it for you?

Who’s ready for the Independence Day weekend?! Yeah! Let’s load up the car, clean off the grill, stock up on snacks and drinks, schedule a party with all of our friends, make sure we’re ready to clean up afterwards, and… oh, screw it. This is too much work! Why do the holidays need to be such a hassle? Someone else can go to the effort of celebrating. I’m just going to get in some good quality gaming time!

So, join me, won’t you, for this week’s Trends with Benefits, our weekly brainteaser for Points of Interest readers! It’s a pain to try and fight traffic all the way across town for that Fourth of July BBQ, so why not just enjoy a fast-paced kart race on the comfort of your iPhone with Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing, recently released on iOS by our friends at SEGA? Put together your gaming holiday of choice below, and you’ll have a shot at receiving your own free download!
