Free Game of the Week - Sweet Revenge
Games: Posted: 24/10/04 12:31 Author: *End Is Forever* Comments: 4 Comments

Many moons ago, before I even sampled the delights of the Amiga 500+, I had one of those terrific Toshiba computers with games loaded by cassette player. Now, the graphics might have been consistently naff, but much fun was had by all.

Sweet Revenge takes me right back. Yes, it's not much to look at, but it's frustratingly addictive...

Free Game of the Week - Platypus
Games: Posted: 21/10/04 11:57 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 1 Comment

Sorry it's late.

I know many of you are instinctively wary of "please install our ActiveX control" games, but this seems safe enough. And it's a lot of fun, feels like an Amiga-era parallax scroller but done entirely in plasticine. Very cleverly done.

Good time to be an AMD fan. And rich.
Technoglow: Posted: 19/10/04 21:10 Author: Sir Penguin Comments: 10 Comments

I guess it's always a good time to be rich. Except when the poor people revolt. Unless you're getting rich by selling weapons to the poor people. Hmmm... Any of you losers dissatisfied with your government?

Anyway, AMD's coming out with the Athlon64 4000+, which apparently spanks anything by Intel in most benchmarks. Of course, it's ridiculously expensive at US$700-800. The Athlon FX-55 is available too, for even more money.

In related news, nVidia's announced the nForce4 chipset for Socket 939 (Sempron, Athlon64, and AthlonFX processors). It includes a load of brand new technology, including Windows Longhorn TCP Chimney support, hardware firewalling on the motherboard, and native SATA II (300 MB/s). It will also do PCI Express, something that isn't supported by current Socket 939 chipsets yet. Actual hardware should be available in a month or so. It, too, is guaranteed to cost hundreds of dollars, but it comes with the motherboard.

Free Game of the Week - Peasant's Quest
Games: Posted: 11/10/04 20:32 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 24 Comments

Yes! It's a complete mock-8-bit pseudographic adventure game. With strange humour. I hope they haven't replicated the "if you don't do things in the right order you lose without ever knowing it" puzzle types but it doesn't seem like it.

all sorts of new stuff although unless they sort out the rather ancient menu system I'm not sure I can be bothered...

Free Game of the Week - Text Express
Games: Posted: 3/10/04 20:07 Author: Scabrous Birdseed Comments: 50 Comments

It stuck me a couple of weeks ago that we haven't had a "Countdown"-style word descrambler on this feature yet. While there are probably better games in the genre out there, this is the only one I've seen with unrestricted regular-play features that doesn't require registration. It's quite fun, too.
