snowplough around the streets of Boston in this not at all seasonally themed game.
Google Suggest gives you a list of suggestions of what you might be searching for as you type and, critically, gives you a ranking by number of results so you can see what are the most 'popular' searches. A very nice idea but I find it a little bit clunky, it has to download extra info from the server as you go, so I don't know if it will ever go live as part of the main search function, but it's certainly a great option to have available.
point'n'click is the museum from the same nice people that brought you the office and the house. Right, I have some gaming to do now...
one, but two, tricky point'n'click games for you today - will you be puzzling all the way into the new year? So, what's the twist with My Diamond Baby? Well despite the fact that there's a link for an English version it isn't ready yet so you'll have to play it in Japanese. Fine if you're from that neck of the woods, or you're some kind of polyglot, but for the rest of us an evil extra level of difficulty. Fortunately the kindly Jayne has already found a walkthru over at the-geek.
Amoadv is a photo-realistic point'n'click game from Japan that has a reputation for being tricky to complete, so comments ahoy with all our efforts to complete it. Yes - that's right - I post games I haven't completed yet so I can cheat by reading your comments. My dirty secret is out (fortunately that's one of the less dirty one's - keep your mouth shut if you're reading Jules).
mentioned a while back that one of the projects I worked on was up for an award - well we were actually up for two awards. The project actually came second in one, but in the Information Management Awards which we attended en-masse we didn't get anywhere beyond being nominated. Still a good time was had by all as you can see from the pictures. Being a black-tie event we were, of course, all on our best behaviour.
Decemberween and I was meant go Decemberween shopping already... Take a break from your present buying fenzy with a toon or play with a nice relaxing snowglobe.
Modern cyber-crime knows no bounds.
Jump the snowman into the Mini. Simple-ish, but how could I resist the triple lure of Christmas related fun, gaming and Mini-ness?
