Casino Royale Strategy Game looks great, you play against a real life opponent (yes you lazylacers can play against each other...), I'm a big Bond fan, and I'm really looking forward to the new film that this game is promoting, yet still I couldn't get into this. I think it just moves too slowly, especially while your opponent takes their move, but I'm guessing there must be an element of this in all strategy games. Anyway it may not be for me, but it certainly does look like a fine a game if you like this sort of thing, so I think it deserves a link so you can try it and see if you like it. The idea of Lazylacers playing each other kind of appeals too. Within the game you play as an an MI6 team leader (you control a whole team of operatives), and your goal is to find the briefcase of terrorist funds, hidden somewhere within an airport, before Le Chiffre's henchmen do. Then it's a simple matter of escaping the airport with the briefcase! [subbed by Andy from Encino].
Boris And Bianca is (or should that be are grammar-girl?) not so much a point'n'click game as an interactive fairytale, at least that's how it bills itself, but there's definitely some point'n'clickery in there, along with some slightly surreal stop-frame animation and weird music. All in all rather an odd, but enjoyable, thing for a Friday. Beware the rather long load times though [subbed by Na].
Stella Household Challenge is a weird little point'n'click game/toy promoting some show I can't comment on as we don't get it over here (well I haven't seen it anyway). Anyway the aim of the game is to complete houshold chores using your point'n'click skills. The more I think about it, the more I think this may be some sort of conspiracy Jennifer is involved in to get me to do more housework. Anyway, I can't believe I'm saying this, but now housework is fun [subbed by MsInterpret].
dictionary.com says it is)! Bill Clinton imparts some interesting views/news and gets mad all at the same time. Which does the US media concentrate on? I think you can guess correctly. The Daily Show does the business once again, doing an excellent job of pointing out the foibles of the media circus. This is my favourite TV show at the moment (we only get it with a day's delay here), even if there is a new series of Spooks on now.
Part 2 of CDX is out now for you to point'n'click your way through, but as before it's only open to us Brits, possibly being restricted on IP address rather than by drinking and sporting habits, whatever I might say. We pay over 130 quid a year for this btw via the TV license, which is how the BBC is funded, although having said that I'm hoping that when the heat dies down on this game it's re-opened to all, as it was when it was first released [subbed by Nick S The Hamster].
My second link for musical Friday (woohoo Friday!), this is my absolute favourite track du jour, America by Razorlight. I've loved this for a while (off the album), but I understand this is the latest single release (at least in the UK). Enjoy.
Buried Treasure, even with the language I don't understand (Chinese?), is the load time. It takes ages. Anyway, once you start playing there are some keys to find, a door to unlock, all using your trusty point'n'click skills, a surreal frog hopping game that's seems to have no connection to anything else, and the ultimate reward, a chest full of treasure - which in this case seems to be a link to a Chinese (?) web site offering cruises, or possibly gambling, or possibly gambling on cruises. I didn't quite work that bit out [subbed by f00 via nordinho].
Virtual Curry's Haunted Castle is a short point'n'click game where you have to find, and destroy, Count Vlad (some sort of vampire dude) in his castle. Very easy, and very short, but don't be fooled into thinking you have finished if you get to the stage I have in my screenshot above - you're only done when the skeletons dance, you'll see what I mean [subbed anonymously].
point'n'click version of Cluedo seems to be the game everybody is talking about. Well it's the one they're all emailing me about anyway. Looks good, I'll have to check it out when I get a chance, unfortunately I need to get on with some work now... [subbed by msmagrat, Melis, winniethepooh, Mantari, f00, charlie, jamez & dee].
Black Room 2 is the point'n'click game for you. Graeme's mental note: do not run this through google translator to produce a dodgy translation thus destroying any impression I may have created that I can speak Spanish [subbed anonymously].
