Monday Madness?

This is going to be a big madness. Due to recent excitement, we’ve got to catch up three weeks worth.

GAME: Gamers With Jobs featured a game a while back called Ether Cannon. It’s Asteroids with pretty visuals, concussion visuals.

PICS: Ever heard of the website PostSecret? Gamers With Jobs (again) started the same thing with games. The Teamfortress 2 pyro is my favorite. Post 1. Post 2.

GAME: Luminara, a much better take on Asteroids—much better. Now with trippy visuals, excellent controls, and a catchy soundtrack.

GAME: Do you like the Civilization games? Then you’ll love this FREE, dumbed-down, web-based version. Call it Ikariam. I’ll be sharing the server I’m on eventually.

PICS: Somebody took some screencaps of Metroid Prime 3 and made them 3D. I’ve got some glasses and I’ll admit: awesome. Thanks, Kotaku.

GAME: Audiosurf has recently added some new features. Why do I keep coming back to this game? Oh, yeah, because of allowing me to use my own songs. I don’t have to pay for each and every new song. Zing?

VIDEO: I usually cannot stand watching sportcasters, but somebody at TNT is teh phunny.

GAME: Zombies. That’s all I’m going to say. The Last Stand gets a sequel.

GAME: 1up has the first footage of Gears of War 2. Can you say $60 expansion pack? Sure you can.

GAME: Make your own Ouendan (Elite Beat Agents) clone for the PC. They’ve got video. N-E-A-T.

PICS: Warning! LEGO! I have two excellent posts. These guys have skills we should all have: the Germinated Ruby and the works of Izzo.

Well, the post was not as large as I thought after I weeded out some links I’d like to dedicate time for their own posts.


  1. After finally acquiring Gears of War I am totally at a loss as to what all the fuss is about with the sequel. It has got to be one of the most boring “action” games I have ever played.

    Still trying to get into it, but not sure I can see myself finishing it.

  2. Oh, you too?

    However, it’s a pretty good co-op game.

  3. Those LEGO posts take me back to my basement when I was ten years old. Those are awesome. Not too sure about that Ouedan PC game, though. It works perfectly on the DS.

    @Jason – Gears was a decent game that everyone creamed over and people figured that if everyone else liked it, they might as well like it, too. But, like Nat says, co-op is a blast.

    And the over-the-top testosterone fest is still fun to laugh at.

  4. I can see the co-op being worthwhile. I had actually purchased Rainbow 6 Vegas 2 (Dallas 3) and while it is less reliant on the cover mechanic as Gears is, there was a lot of potential for co-op in the game mechanic. I only played it a couple of times on-line, but I had a lot of fun with it.

    Maybe it’s time to get involved with Gears and Beers over at Gamers with jobs. I’ve just been hesitant since I have yet to finish the 2nd mission.
