Where's Matt is a fun little point'n'click version of the classic Where's Wally?/Where's Waldo? games (I'm sure they must use other names in other territories as well and I apologize for omitting these). The idea of the game is to find NBC's Today (I have no idea) show host Matt Lauer (ditto) in the photos [subbed by Michael Merry]. PS. On a totally personal note I'm playing (well not such much playing) my own game (well not so much game) of Where's Matt? I'm looking for an old friend Matthew Webb I've lost contact with and if you are him, know him, or can give me some help finding him, it would be much appreciated - email me using the link in the bottom right hand corner of this page if you can help. Last time I was in touch with him he was working as a paramedic in Stoke-on-Trent, UK and I'd really like to track him down soon.
point'n'clicked your way through the idiot test(s) now try thinking more positively and try the Genius Test [subbed by ***].
Echizen (or so I'm told, I can't pretend to have worked this out for myself) is to collect all the ingredients to make soup for your mum using your point'n'click skills. Even if you're a master chef though you're going to struggle more than you would think if you don't understand Japanese [subbed by Melina & carm].
Na Mira Da Lei is a nice looking, nice sounding, seemingly simple crime scene investigation point'n'click game. Oh... but it's made somewhat harder if you don't understand Portuguese. Did I not mention it was in Portuguese? Ooops... [subbed by CrisMach]
EscapeDaHouse before your ears start to bleed from listening to that music loop. I know there's a mute icon, but it didn't seem to work no matter how many of my l33t point'n'click skills I unleashed upon it. Arrrrrggghhh.... [subbed by winniethepooh, crazylegs, GoGz, Ariadne & Kate ].
13 if you are counting, in the popular SSSG Series the Super Sneaky Spy Guy goes to the rescue. The point'n'click story so far: You were close to finding your wife Stacy when you were knocked unconscious. Now you find yourself in a strange dungeon who knows how long you were knocked out and Stacy could be anywhere by now! Use your skills to escape the dungeon and find Stacy [subbed by Self Defiant, winniethepooh, Boone, Helanren, Karzo, Jas, sopdox, Meme2, crazylegs, Lady Lark, suki, GoGz, Mad Dog, fatrnu, Anna, Ariadne, Nej, TexasHawkeye & Sophie].
Galves Adventure (V1) is a cute game by the legendary eyezmaze in which you play as little baby Galves, who through a series of point'n'click meetings with various animals must finally reach, and defeat, a lion. Add to that some cute graphics, cute music, a dose of hapland, a dash of snoozleberg, and you end up with one addicting game [subbed by kittycat_blue, winniethepooh, Sean, Ashley, bhavit, vgaforums, Reg, Anna, Laserleaser, Ariadne & Kate].
never-ending story of Wogger Mini reaches, and goes beyond, the meaning of life, the universe, and everything in Wogger Mini 42 & Wogger Mini 43 in this continuing point'n'click tale [subbed by some1, Lisa, Spanky McPipebomb, MTrouble, Teakay, sopdox, whitecrow, Saphyre, silke, Wenche Marie Fladeby, Line, U2isdebest, wakeboredb, Ems, surfie, hellek28, troy, muffin man, Videocrazy, Cruzinn, MsSpent Youth, U25150 & Kate].
point'n'click game of escape in Escape Game 3: the graphics have that pleasing Japanese edge, but unfortunately the text has that totally incomprehensible Japanese edge, but the site does promise an English version is on the way, I'm sure you're all too hard core to wait for that though...

Grand National (being raced tomorrow in honour of my birthday this year!) - the most famous UK horse race, and about the one event in the country that even non gamblers will have a punt on. The traditional (well ish) way most people bet is to have an office sweepstake with everyone randomly, or maybe not so randomly, picking a horse, placing a set bet, and then the winner takes the pot of money at the end. Simple. To make it even more simple though, and pleasingly geeky, Betfair's new sweepstake web site let's you organize your office sweepstake online without all of the crumpled newspapers, dodgy accounting and administration. Nice. You'll have to hurry though as the race is tomorrow, don't worry about being late to the game though as the runners were only announced yesterday meaning we're all in the same boat. Ever one not to take my own advice my office got all organized this year and we actually drew for our sweepstake yesterday evening (crumpled pieces of paper, etc), although nicely half our prize fund is going to charity (explaining the rather steep bet I was asked for). And which horse did I pick? Well I got "L'Ami", which, with current odds of 20-1, is by no means the worst horse in the race, but is still far from being a favourite. You can wish me luck for a birthday win though :) [subbed by advergamer].
Oh yes. My ultimate, and third and final, guilty pleasure for Musical Friday, this is My Definition Of A Boombastic Friday. You're at least tapping your toes, I know you are. Don't resist the urge. Give in, go for it. Dance around your work/school desk. Extra points if you don't tell your colleagues/classmates why you are doing it...
Second guilty musical pleasure for the day it's that song from Shrek that I love to sing along to... maybe it's not total musical quality, but it is perfect to get you into that Friday feeling... Actually, perhaps, the Graeme doth protest too much, as I also like "Walking On The Sun" by Smash Mouth as well. Dammit... my name is Graeme and I'm a Smash Mouth fan... (the first step is admitting it)...
