Introducing Boomerang Rentals - the best way to rent games
by Chris Hawke

Gaming is a brilliant hobby. Turns out, it's also expensive. Once you've bought the console of your choice, you then have to dish out £40 every time you want to play the latest release. Seeing as 2010 is lining up some of the most anticipated games in a while, it looks like your wallet is either going to bleed dry, or you'll have to miss out on the biggest games due to a tight budget. Or do you? You see, friends, there is an another option - and it looks pretty darn enticing.

The Gamer's Guide to Life Network is proud to announce a partnership with Boomerang Rentals - the best way to play every single new release while keeping your pocket full of cash. Quite simply, Boomerang sends you any of their 3,000+ video games on demand, via freepost, for you to play and enjoy for as long as you like. There are a total of 9 package options, ranging from 1 game at a time and 1 game a month, to the amazing 2 games a time, and as many games as you want per month. So, what's the catch? Turns out, there isn't one.

We all know you can pop down to your local rental store and pick up one of a small selection of games for around £5 a week. Expensive, time-consuming, and it's unlikely you'll fully finish a game in such a short time. Boomerang, on the other hand, can offer you a game a month for as long as you like for only £3.49 a month. That's less than a round of drinks, for a video game. Boomerang's most popular package allows 1 game at a time, and as many games as you like a month, for £9.99 a month.

To put that in perspective, take the next month or so of gaming. Red Dead Redemption, Split/Second: Velocity, Dead to Rights, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Neir, Super Street Fighter IV, Skate 3, Lost Planet 2, Modnation Racers, Blur, Alan Wake, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and more, for only £10. A quick calculation puts that at at least a £500 saving. Now that's a bargain.

And that's just the next month. Want to replay the old classic Shadow Of The Colossus? Finally want to see what all the fuss was with Batman: Arkham Asylum? Boomerang have those, and 3,000+ others just waiting for you to choose. You can even reserve games coming in the future. Plus, Boomerang have recently started selling games - want to keep GTA: Episodes From Liberty City for £24.50? Or maybe preorder Red Dead Redemption for a cool £33.99? They're even going to start selling PC games soon. Score!

Membership Packages range from £3.49 to £15.99 a month, and you can line up as many games as you want. STILL not convinced? Take the 21 day free trial to check out just a snippet of the awesomeness. With time, you can make savings of over £1000, and need never buy a video game again. Where to sign up? Just click the advert on this page. It's so worth it.
