AppDope: News, Reviews and lots of Free Stuff

A couple of weeks ago the virtual doors were opened on a new website called AppDope.  It's being brought to you by the fine folks who hosted the "12 Days Of Christmas Apps" giveaway last Decemeber, and it's full of news and reviews on the latest and greatest iDevice games, as well as upcoming products.  More importantly though, in keeping with their giving spirits, are the Friday MegaComps.  In order to participate you must register with the site and then actually sign up each week for the competition.  On Friday they'll randomly select winners from all those who have signed up, and each winner will receive a code for one of the games they have to give away for that week.  So what types of games might you expect?  Here's the list from Friday, February 12th 2010:
