WildTangent was a PC/web game company founded in 1998 by Alex St. John and Jeremy Kenyon. The company is well known for its PC web/online games that were pre-installed for PC users who own HP, Dell, Toshiba, Gateway, Samsung, Acer, and Sony VAIO, like Polar Bowler, Final Drive Nitro, Blasterball series, and the Fate series.
WildTangent used to develop their own original games, sometimes to advertise various companies, TV, and movies. Most of the WildTangent titles were discontinued and have become lost or missing. The reason they discontinued their games is unknown. However, they were criticized because their games contain spyware, the company no longer distributes or develops Web Driver.
In order to play WildTangent games, the user would have to install WildTangent Web Driver and Microsoft Java Virtual Machine. Java would need to be uninstalled or disabled in case it blocked these games from running. The antivirus software would have to be disabled in case it blocked them from running as well.
WildTangent owns Genesis3D game engine, but the company do not handle responsibilities for Genesis3D games. In 1999, WildTangent and Eclipse Entertainment negotiated a deal where WildTangent purchased most of the Genesis3D assets to create their Web Driver.WildTangent then acquired Eclipse Entertainment in January 2002.
From 2006, the company offer anybody to buy WildCoins for any games, until 2020 when WildCoins have been discontinued, as the company are focused on adding new features and improving the overall experience.
Somewhere in 2008, WildTangent released WildTangent Orb console, a new PC service aimed to give a game console experience. Orb will act as a portal for "console games," defined here as games designed for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and let you download and play games in its entirety or in play sessions, which will cost you via tokens or free through watching advertisements.WildTangent Orb have been since discontinued.
In February 2013, WildTangent have launched it's mobile service.The company used to developed their own original mobile games and used to be available on App Store (for iOS) and Google Play (for Android), but has been since removed and no longer available to purchase.
Most discontinued WildTangent games are no longer available for purchase, but some can still be downloaded from other distributors or somewhere else, CD that has some games, or anybody who has the game backed up. The list of games that are lost and found can be viewed below. And the list of games and other demos as separate list can be viewed below as well.A MEGA folder of the currently found old WildTangent games and other stuff is available here for download.
As of present day, 25 of their original games currently available to purchase and 12 original web games still available to play on WildTangent website. Bringing the total of only 37 WildTangent original games still supported, as of now.
Both WildTangent published games Lumines (developed by Q Entertainment) and Crazy Sapper 3D (developed by Aratog Games) still available to purchase, therefore doesn't count as WildTangent original games as they first released both games.
The only retail WildTangent games available to purchase somewhere else was Fate, Fate: Undiscovered Realms, Fate: The Traitor Soul, Fate: The Cursed King, Penguins!, Polar Bowler (PC version), Polar Bowler (Nintendo DS version), Polar Golfer, Polar Golfer: Pineapple Cup, Polar Pool, Polar Tubing, Tornado Jockey, Lilo & Stitch Pinball, and Xbox Music Mixer (for Xbox), but were rare to find. The rest of some WildTangent games available on CD from various distributors but not all of it, they were very rare to find nowadays.
WildTangent occasionally discontinue games if older games that simply won't work on newer operating systems in order to provide the best gaming experience possible. If some of former current supported games were no longer available to download and purchase anymore, then they be listed as discontinued list.
Some of the games that uses WildTangent Web Driver run separately from WildTangent, it is unknown whether WildTangent develop or did not develop those games for other companies, no information have been confirmed, here's the list:
Regular gems come in different grades, which determine their value and how much they will increase a stat. The grades, in order of increasing value are: cracked, normal (e.g. a normal agate is simply called an agate ), superior, perfect and divine. Divine gems are also considered Artifacts and are exceedingly rare.
It is pretty much certain that if you continue to use P2P programs, you will get infected.Online Gaming Warning!Online gaming sites are a security risk which can make your computer susceptible to a large number of malware infections, remote attacks, exposure of personal information, and identity theft. They can lead to other sites containing malware which you can inadvertently download without knowledge. Users visiting such sites may see innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. Gaming sites can put you at risk to fraud, phishing and theft of personal data. Even if the gaming site is a clean site, there is always the potential of some type of malware making its way there and then onto your system. In some instances an infection may have caused so much damage to your system that it cannot be successfully cleaned or repaired. In those cases, recovery is not possible and the only option is to reformat/reinstall the OS.More specifically, I noticed you had WildTangent on your computer.WildTangent Program WarningWild Tangent is a video game software company specializing in online games. It has even made a partnership with AOL to include itself as part of the AOL Instant Messenger for their AIM games section. The WildTangent Web Driver is their technology that allows you to play 3D games over the Internet. Although its not technically considered spyware it does have built in components to update itself and gather information about the computer system including:
Which one is best, is certainly debatable. It really depends on which software works best for you and your habits. You are completely fine keeping either one. Personally, I like MSE because it's quite user friendly, and doesn't take up a lot of resources to run. I see you have some games installed, so a low resource AV protection is probably best for you (and that's the reason I suggested to uninstall the other).
In several of the cases listed here, the game's developers released the source code expressly to prevent their work from becoming abandonware. Such source code is often released under varying (free and non-free, commercial and non-commercial) software licenses to the games' communities or the public; artwork and data are often released under a different license than the source code, as the copyright situation is different or more complicated. The source code may be pushed by the developers to public repositories (e.g. SourceForge or GitHub), or given to selected game community members, or sold with the game, or become available by other means. The game may be written in an interpreted language such as BASIC or Python, and distributed as raw source code without being compiled; early software was often distributed in text form, as in the book BASIC Computer Games. In some cases when a game's source code is not available by other means, the game's community "reconstructs" source code from compiled binary files through time-demanding reverse engineering techniques.
Once games, or software in general, become an obsolete product for a company, the tools and source code required to re-create the game are often lost or even actively destroyed and deleted. For instance, with the closure of Atari in Sunnyvale, California in 1996, the original source codes of several milestones of video game history such as Asteroids and Centipede were all thrown out as trash.

Durability: Most laptops these days are made of plastic, but HP seemed fit to also make the audio-jack ring out of cheap plastic. After a not-so-careful insertion, the ring cracked, meaning no headphone will stay in properly. 2b1af7f3a8
