If you’ve ever been into card games and have some time to kill take a look at Kongai from Kongregate (an online gaming service). Kongai is collectible – but you get given a new card for winning matches and/or by completing challenges on other games on Kongregate. There are only 50 or so cards - most of which are characters. You take 3 characters into battle and then use a scissors, paper, rock combat system to render your opponents characters to dust.

Girlfriend Team Fortress 2 is a completely entertaining video montage from a guy who recorded his girlfriends first foray into the world of online first person shooters.
Basically I recorded my girlfriend (who I would not call a gamer) playing Team Fortress 2 for the first time.
It’s quiet an interesting experiment, to see how her skills improve as she gets over the initial learning curve and how she doesn’t have any of the ground work that most gamers have in knowing the general rule sets and principles of games.

All your tower defense style games in one handy location and updated regularly. You can play all the games direct from the site as well as see the most popular or newest additions. Ezo isn’t going to win any awards for site design but as always, content is king.
I have been playing a lot of Gem Tower Defense recently. It plays a like your normal Tower Defense game using different quality gems as your towers. The main differentiator is that you can collect patterns of gems to combine into Specialty Towers. Unfortunately the version available via TowserDefense.net has the combinations on a different page so you are better off to play it at it’s home address where you can get them on the same screen at least. I hope they do a wide version (like I’ve stitched in my screen shot) to save on scrolling while you are learning the Gem Combos

No seriously. Use your ‘gravity well’ to fling out balls of energy at the never ending horde of tanks that are trying to drive past. The realistic physics model allows you to crash the tanks into each other, and the walls, creating chain reactions of collisions. As you advance levels you get points to develop your defensive arsenal including the acquisition of god like smiting powers! The fun will never end.
About time as I was looking for something to replace Tower Defense! You can play in your browser but I recommend downloading and running it standalone – even then it is pretty intensive, so if it lags, get yourself a new computer.

Here is a slightly different of the desktop tower defense game I posted a few weeks back. This one has an extra tower, and a different enemy unit – otherwise it’s the same tower defense goodness.

They’re slow but they’re relentless. We can all use a bit of light relief, and putting virtual bullets into virtual zombies seems as good a method as any for taking five. There are a bunch of different weapons and power ups. Watch out for the barrels and other exploding stuff that you can deploy – they seem to kill me much more often than the zombies do!

Ah it’s is the end of a mad week at work. Why the hell did I make a switch from operations to project work I ask you?
To help you keep your sanity have a go at this browser based strategy game. You have to try to prevent the critters getting across the screen to the exits by building a maze of towers to well, defend.

Well the posts from me have been flying thin and slow. I have been having my head filled at work so all I end up doing is coming home and unfilling it. I used this shockwave flash game to help me over the weekend. I hope it helps you unwind as well. My record is 191 feet. Post your scores in the comments. Peace. Out

Here are a couple of good flash animations depicting the animation and animator duking it out. Clever and funny stuff. Have a look before they become ‘so last month’.
update: redirected the linkage to new sites as Atom films dumped their animations. You can now watch these clips in all their glory

Came across a great flash game that has managed to entertain me well this weekend. You play a super flexible stick figure who can throw two sticky wires to pull yourself through a scrolling maze of platforms. It is pretty addictive so you’ve been warned.

Hilarious stuff the US govt produces from their propaganda machine. From the school of thought that brought you “unspecified security threats” and “terror alert orange” there is a great fun website designed to give
you prepardness information for survivng in the dangerous times you a sense of fear and make you easier to control.
Trouble is it is just too funny to be taken seriously.
