The Games Flood

We seem to be in the middle of a games flood, after quite a while with very little worth having we've got something like 5 or so titles all hitting at once. Why they couldn't space this out so people had a chance to appreciate one before the next came out I don't know. So anyway let's take a look at the first three of the deluge of new gaming gems to purchase for most gaming platforms.

World of Goo

Some years ago I spotted a site called experimental gameplay (the site still exists in roughly the same form thought it is now open to others http://www.experimentalgameplay.com), it was a student project from some people at the Entertainment Technology Center at Carnegie Mellon University. They produced small prototype games in a short space of time that toyed with different types of gameplay.

Dear Customer We couldn't be bothered to read your support request have a standard form reply not related to your issue

I've been trying out Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning (or WAR as I believe the preferred T.L.A. would have it) it's fun enough tho at the moment I don't know if I would pay to play it once my free trail runs out.

Time for an upgrade

I've been looking at replacing my machine for a while now as it's been showing signs of slow agonising death for quite some time. When it gets to the point that texture and vertex corruption in games are a good day it's time to take the thing out to the back yard and shoot it.

Comics/Graphic Novels

I finished reading Alan Moores Watchmen last night and I enjoyed it a great deal. I've never really been someone that was into comics much, when I was small I read thing like The Dandy and The Beano but when I got to my teens I stopped reading comics since most of the ones I had any contact with were for small kids.
