My flatmate got a wii on monday with NSMB. I'd played it on a girlfriend's DS a while back, and it was excellent. The Wii version is similarly 101 shades of brilliance. But, yes, co-op is lacking in, well, cooperative play...

I remember being blown away by AvP back in the day...

Ten years later it pops up on Steam, ugh, game hasn't aged too well. :(

I don't know if someone has posted this before, but the IGF 2010 finalists have been decided.

Feud, thanks for reminding me. I've wanted to replay it for quite a while. Pity the steam version doesn't support multiplayer. That could be fun.

Yep. Page 70 ;) Done so on the day of the announcement.

You need to check back more often :P

Decided to buy The Darkness as it was 8 euros second-hand in the local shop. Also got Worms on PSN (it might not be the kind of game you'd want to play on the PS3 of all things but it plays surprisingly well and the party value is worth the 10 bucks). I have some credit left and am now torn between Pixeljunk Shooter and Bionic Commando Rearmed. Any advice?

Pixel Junk Shooter is great fun, especially if you have a friend to play with. I played through the whole thing with my brother co-op and it's both tense and easy to play at the same time. Heartily recommended. Be warned that it is short though.

Haven't played BCR. Oh, and yes Flower is awesome.


As a side note I am leaning towards getting Solium Infernum but the price tag sadly puts it beyond impulse buy. Anyway played it, have it, would be interested in playing it with me?

Colour me tempted, but yeah, the price for that kind of game is a tad high. Maybe we should do an IV demo game?

Heh, when I got back I read from where I last was. Or so I thought.
Apparently started from page 71 when I should have started from page 69. :P

:( Apparently the demo only has hotseat multiplayer, no play by email.

Tell me if/when you do. I'll probably get in when I have spare time but since I have The Void to finish now, school coming back in tens days and Mass Effect 2 also coming out then it will probably be when I have someone to play with.

Also.
