Oh man I'm hungry. I'm so hungry that I'm grumpy and my eyebrows reflect this. I thought I was supposed to photosynthesize, what the hell. I bet I'll find some food if I just walk to the left for a while.
Who's that chubby guy in the overalls? Maybe he knows where... why is he jumpin- OH GOD MY SKULL!
Oh my God I'm disappearing! This is the end!
What is this place? The ground looks a little different and there are unmanned cannons firing all over the place. I should get out of here by walking to the left. I bet I'll find some food there.
No, I bumped into a wall and now I'm walking to my right. Damnit.
Great, here comes that jerk again. Only he looks different somehow.
Hey buddy, thanks for crushing my head before! Real nice! You toss pizzas with those feet?
Did you just throw something at me? What the hell? It's a good thing you can't aim for shit, otherwise I'd come over there and - OH GOD I'M BURNING!
Where am I now? This cave is cold and dark. I bet there'll be an exit to the left.
Titan Quest 1.08
Coming a mere week after the game's retail release, Titan Quest's version 1.08 patch tweaks various gameplay elements and addresses several show-stopping bugs that were rendering the game unplayable for many users.
Terra Wars: NY Invasion
All those in favor of generic lizard men and texture art circa 1998, please vote by dancing in a rust factory's Chair Room.
I haven't had this much fun with portals and gravity since GravPortalCon '05, and I haven't had this much fun with a shooter since the last mediocre shooter I played. 7/10
Glory Of The Roman Empire
Rome wasn't built in a day, but apparently the whole empire was built in 30 simplistic missions that presented no difficulty and left the planner feeling thoroughly underwhelmed. 6/10
Finally, a mech game for people who hate substantial single player campaigns and love spending more time screaming at squadmates than screaming at their own families. 7/10
Lord Of The Rings: The Battle For Middle-Earth II
An RTS that actually works reasonably well using a gamepad, making it official that the only PC genre which can't be done more profitably on a console is now "Illegally downloaded hentai game that actually turns out to be a virus". 8/10
How can you possibly refuse to buy the arcade classic Frogger in HD (with the game itself occupying a tiny space in the center of the screen) for only $5 if you've got a gun to your head and the man holding it will kill you and your family if you don't buy the game? 6/10
Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
