Armmogeddon: The Patent Of Doom

Here's a story that hit during our week off - it's one you probably already know about, but as it's potentially something that's very bad news for PC gaming, it's only fair and right to give you fine folks a convenient place to discuss it. Massively (thanks, Larington) has one of the better summations and explorations of what's going, as they seem to have clever…

We Are Spies, We Will Thrill You: Gravity Bone

Poisoned Sponge urged me to play this. I now urge you to do likewise. It's from Blendogames (aka Brandon Chung), built on the Quake-2 derived KMQuake2 engine and is intellectually a cross between Hitman, No-one Lives Forever and Team Fortress 2, with a big splash of arthouse gibber. It's also the wittiest game I've played since... World of Goo? Yeah, sounds right. And best of…
