This game was a staple my LAN parties till multiplayer stopped working in Windows 7. So many civilizations and so many ways to play this game made us always come back for more.

I remember a few games where we focused on strip mining the map, where we essentially harvested everything for fun. Sometimes we would "box in" the computers by buildings walls around them to completely encase them and then do whatever to harass them.

Keep hoping GoG can rerelease it with a modern build that fixes muiltiplayer.



With the Creation Kit coming out very soon, here's an idea for any modders.

I wish you could restore Helgen. It could be a nice little questline. Clear the bandits, gather the scattered survivors, bring different kinds of ore, ingots, and firewood, donate money to the restoration effort...

You could even use your connections to get business. The Arch Mage could use his connections at the college to get an alchemist shop in town, the leader of the Thieves Guild could get a fence and even some legit trade, you could get the Companions to provide muscle, either the Imperials or Stormcloaks to send guards, the Bards College could send word to all the bards in all the inns...

So in my second play through I'm changing up my play strategy a bit. Putting the sunflowers ahead of my peashooters as a natural defense in the beginning.

So in the first back 2 rows pea shooters, 2 two rows next sunflowers. Then(because it's still early game) mines and walnuts. I just unlocked the flytrap which is always fun :)

PvZ 2? Yes please.

This is getting a remake. I'm not sure how well it will hold up in the era of the Skate titles, but I'm looking forward to it.

This guy is amazing. He is constantly doing SM64 speedruns of different types. He recently broke the 120 star world record. If you like watching people play video games, this is quite entertaining.

If you have an Android phone, this is a great time sink. They've recently opened up microtransactions, which is annoying, but you can ignore them. It's very basic gameplay, you just tap and hold to dive, and you use that to control where and how you land and how far it makes you fly. Very addictive, very fun, very frustrating.

Yes, I actually own this game. All I can say is, watch the Angry Video Game Nerd review it. He's spot on.

If you haven't played this game, you're missing out. I'm not sure how well it holds up, though. Going back through my games to plug them all into the site made me really want to get a Windows 98 VM up and running to play a lot of these old games.

One thing you have to say about LucasArts, they have solid, polished games. The cinematic nature of this game was pretty much untouched at the time. Even with some glitchiness, the immersion was high, and the mechanics were great (again, for the time).


I downloaded the free version from iTunes because I saw it in the top 10 free section on the App Store. I saw Disney as the creator and almost didn't buy it because, lately, I don't really identify with Disney games or movies.

First off the game feels like a Disney cartoon. They really bring a strong Animation effort to the table on this game in the direction of Swampy the Aligator main character. The gist of the game is that Swampy likes to take baths and you need to allow the water to fill his tub. Totally down with the premise and its actually fun to help him out!

Just beat the main "meet swampy" intro thingy and I was impressed that the puzzles were so varied. When... Read All
