games not hard enough? Creepy atmosphere doesn't freak you out? Sprechen Sie Deutsches? If you answered yes so far you're probably feeling pretty smug, so Saw Das Spiel
chucks a ten minute time limit into the mix to try to cut you down to size. Good luck [thanks Incog Neato
The film causing me the most regret that I never get to the cinema is the imminent release of the Hitchhikers' Guide To The Galaxy (can I really
wait until this out on DVD?), so reading the guide to the guide
is like some kind of sick self torture really. Still worth it though. I flicked straight to the Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster section for some unknown reason that probably reveals something about me if only I could work out what that was.
BTW: Stephen Fry as the voice of the guide? It would have been an obvious choice if only I'd stopped to think about it.
I guess you have to know about Father Ted
to really appreciate Doogle
, Ireland's newest search engine, since it's extensive search over 12 web pages might be slightly limited if you were, say, trying to find something. Made me chuckle though.
I like to try and keep re-posts to a minimum, but I was very pleased to find a new working link for the geeks forever
video which I first saw ages ago
, so I've made an exception. All sing along now: "We're geeks forever, we're geeks together....". *joy*
The last of this week's point'n'click
is a dark adventure where the lack of new fangled things like flash mean that your first task is to pick your browser carefully. I got lots of broken links using Opera
, meaning I had to resort to *shudder* Internet Explorer. If that doesn't make a game creepy I don't know what does. It does mean though that the tab key cheat is rendered useless - so there'll be no cheating.
This Friday I'm mainly going nuts with Basement Jaxx
. What have you been listening to that will be helping you unwind from the working week today and become your Friday night theme tune? List your tracks in the comments
. Extra brownie points if you link to some audio so we can all share. Sample Jaxx Tracks here
. Over to you...
Creepy sound effects and spooky graphics make La Piedra De Anamara
a great game to play in the dark. Remember to bring your torch though. You'll need it to read your Spanish-English dictionary.
The twisted nature of point'n'click
games is revealed when you realise that you are relieved to be in a plane crash in the jungle
as it makes a nice change to being locked in a room (Mac on a desk, waste-paper basket with hidden secrets, key hidden somewhere thereabouts, etc, etc). Well it's nice to get out once in a while isn't it? Anyways stuff the gameplay, I love the jungle background graphics and audio on this one, enjoy.
BTW: One useful thing while I remember, this game seems to remember where you have got to, so if you don't want to complete it all in one go you can quit out without losing all of your progress so far.
I've forgotten for ages to post the latest episode of ninjai
, but the series is so long running now that a short delay isn't really a big deal. This episode is as good as the rest, and just as blood thirsty, but is obviously not the last installment as we were lead to believe (yeah!), is it the end of the line for the little bird though?
the little man out of prison. This seemed really easy up until the point where the dog caught me on my way out of the door. Bad fido. I'm not even 100% certain that 'YHJ
' is the name of this game by the way but it's the only writing I could find on the thing, and it would appear you don't need to give a monkeys about what it's called to play it, so whatever (and yes, I did say that in a winey voice and make a 'W' with my fingers).
Singing and guitar playing kittens give us 7 seconds of love
and it's all rathergood
. Go mental this Wednesday, you know you want to...
Okay so everyone in the UK is probably sick of Peter Kay miming to Tony Christie
singing Amarillo by now, and everyone outside the UK probably doesn't know what the heck is going on with this, but it still makes me smile and I still have to sing along (making most of the words up, of course) every time I hear it, so I'm posting it anyway. And, of course, you can still donate here
to comic relief
, a genius money raising British invention, which it's all in aid of.
