The user interface for TrueLove will be familiar to you if you played MilkoGame the other day as this point'n'click game is from the same designers, and the graphic style is not too different either, which is no bad thing imho. The question on everyone's lips though, is can you find your true love? I've personally been trying to suceed at this game for almost a couple of decades now without much luck, so I'll be interested to see your hints in the comments ;o) Better still if one of the lazylaces ladeez could give me a walkthru... [thanks debbie].

Sherlock was described to me as a point'n'click game, but it's really nothing more than a flash version of the old 'spot the difference' game. However the basic point'n'click cheat does work with it, you know - that key, which means that if you really drag it out all 5 levels can be done in about 30 seconds. A discussion about how lame this is will ensue in the comments I'm sure...

Puki - The Swarm
Fight your way through the swarm of puki (they're albino vampire baby freaks don't you know?) in this stylish little shoot 'em up. Shame to break up those minimalist lines with great big pools of blood, but what can you do?

Tango Drop Box
I've been happily using Filezilla for some time now when I need FTP access to look after lazylaces, which I'm still likely to do, but I've just started using Tango Drop Box for some of the more frequent tasks like uploading images to illustrate posts. It's simplicity itself. Create a drop box icon on your desktop and map it to a specific folder on your FTP site - then to upload files to that location you just drag'n'drop them onto the icon. It makes my image uploads a sinch. The software is free to use, but you'll need the .net framework installed - if you're up to date with your Windows updates you should have this aleady though [via Red Ferret]

Escape The Garage
It might be a garage rather than a room, the computer might not be a Mac (or look like one at least), but the point'n'clicker in you will still get the idea: must escape confined space by over using mouse type device....clickerty click [ta Incog Neato].

Red Devil 2
Red Devil 2 might swap the use of a mouse for having to press the cursor and space keys but it's still got point'n'click written all over it (albeit figuratively). Shiny disco balls to you all (arrrrgh that song).

A new perspective on Sony's PSP? Hang on! I'd like a chance to get used to the regular perspective first. An advertising campaign many months away for us in the UK, so here's a sneak preview which you will have probably forgotten by the time it's on television.

Side Note: The music is Take Me Out by Franz Ferdinand in case you didn't know (I headed straight off to download it).

Ten By Ten News
The top 100 current words in the news but in flash navigable picture format. Count the number of pope related items [via ritilan].

Saw Das Spiel
Regular point'n'click 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].

Hitchhikers' Guide Guide
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.

Geeks Forever (Again)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*
