3 New Spinners were added to Ballistick this week, alongside the first ever player-created maps. Congratulations go to ,.syco., for his map "Pyramid", chicken for the map "Mansion", and to codyshadow for "Spacetrain" (each of these players also received an exclusive Builder Spinner to honor their contribution). You can check out the new maps by selecting the "Featured Maps" checkbox on game creation.

With so many great custom maps coming out of the woodwork, these maps won't be the last featured - will your map be next?

Holy Sausages! Meatboy swings into action! Meatboy is a rare platformer, well done. Jump your fleshy body up walls, between buzz saws and through the salt factory.

Thanks for all the Stick Arena Ballistick support we've received so far, I hope everyone who's in the beta is enjoying the new features. Bug reports keep rolling in and the game grows closer to a full release every day. To see the trailer or learn about the beta (and how you can help) visit the Stick Arena Ballistick info page.

September 24, 2008

XGen's latest feature: Momentum Missile Mayhem. Say that five times fast, then go play the game because this tongue-twisting physics-based defense game is actually a joy to see in motion.

Nintendo gets cheeky in this clever little ad they put together on YouTube for Wario Land: Shake It! I won't spoil it so go be entertained by this little gem of viral marketing.

Can't lift a paintbrush? Hate getting dirty with clay? Then maybe you can flex your artistic muscle in your local word processor instead.

September 8, 2008

Just in case the last war was a little too epic, here's the counterpoint: Rapid Wars is an homage to the venerable Geometry Wars and offers some quick pick up action and a few challenging achievements.

Warning - Science Content: Wired brings you the Top 10 Amazing Physics Videos available on the net. Superconductors, Tesla Coils, Ferrous liquids and an in-garage demonstration of how to make a real-life music visualization using flaming propane! Geek fun!

Is it just me, or should someone make a video game based in the Japanese Sewers? These pictures are amazing, Gordon Freeman would feel right at home.

It has come, there is no denying it: The Epic War is upon us. Quick strategy and careful planning will lead your armies to victory.

Braid was released a few weeks ago on XBox Live Arcade, and since then it has enthralled people with genuinely unique gameplay, original design and deep atmosphere. A platformer-puzzler with time-bending twists, it's incredibly fresh feeling and fun. The developers have also generously elected to provide the game's assets for anyone to play around with. Kudos, Braid, for keeping the independent games scene alive and well.

No longer do we, gamers of the world, have to suffer from maltreatment by the hands of the greedy gaming corporations. The Gamer's Bill of Rights has been drafted and holds with it supreme authority, ensuring quality and fair treatment for the gaming brethren... Not really. None of that is true. But it's interesting anyways.
