A wing of the United States Military is sponsoring a game about a gung-ho alpha male's possible degeneration into an animal ruled by bloodlust and carnal rage.

And another game about a globally life-threatening conspiracy perpetrated by an inept U.S. Armed Forces.

ADDENDUM: As it turns out, The Suffering has been free for a while now, supported by in-game ads.  I don't know about the others but I'm going to hazard a guess that "Sponsored by the U.S. Air Force" means they just bought all the existing adspace for recruitment pitches and are now pimping the games a bit to increase exposure.  Well that mystery turned out to be rather boring.

So there is an article about this "Runes of Magic" thing, a free MMO that might not suck. I think I should list it here so one of you guys can evaluate for me.

Even if it's okay, sooner or later you will hit the everpresent free-to-play advancement wall, and it will not be good.

I downloaded it and am letting it update. You want to know how it updates? You'd assume it would just look at what version I have, compare it to the latest, and then go "oh hey, you need the latest version, here you go". It doesn't do that. Instead, it looks at what version you have, then looks for every update after that one, and then updates to all of them in sequence. So what should have been just one fairly large download has instead effectively been broken up into several downloads of varying sizes, some of them substantially large, all of them take extra time to unpack themselves and patch whatever, and to top it off it looks like several of them effect THE SAME GODDAMN FUCKING FILES, which means a number of these are pointless.

I'm willing to give the actual game the benefit of the doubt for now, but this is not a good sign.

I started running the Runes of Magic downloader program yesterday afternoon and it's still running - with no break - and is at 2.5 gigs out of 3.6. At its fastest, it was downloading at about 50 kb/s. Right now it's going at about 0.1 kb/s.

I really want to reboot my computer but I'm worried that it will start all the way over. Not that I would bother trying to re-download the entire fucking thing.

I ended up rebooting anyway and it continued as normal. Faster, even.

Took me two days, but I finally got everything downloaded and installed. Gonna check it out soon.

Edit: First impressions... not that great. I'm not a huge MMO player or anything, but the first area was crowded and laggy. If I find time later on I'll check it out and see if it picks up once things actually start moving along.

I downloaded a game called "castlevania quest" a long time ago, it was like Castlevania 2 graphics on a more traditional level-based  game and it was cool. I found the guys webpage and he seems to have some new stuff including a weird 3D game.

The 3D game is fucking weird

Not actually an advertising pyramid scheme.

That game wins every award ever created or will be created in the future.   :jizz:

Glum Buster.  4 years in the making apparently, all done in Game Maker.  Fun game, gorgeous pixel art.  WARNING: If you hate Knytt you'll probably hate this.

Wizards of the Coast are giving away D&D 4E quick-start rules and the first published adventure. Worth a look if you're not already in on fourth edition or D&D generally.

Isn't that like the second screen?

Shoot the darkbads, then form a triangle around them with the right mouse button.  That's how you get through most of the game I bothered to play.
