Avoid the Rising Tide in 'Submerged - LaSol'

Spring's barely arrived, yet we're already looking ahead to summer and the prospect of lounging on the beach with a trashy paperback in hand. In the meantime, we've picked a few of our favorite nautically themed games to satisfy our longing for the sea. It's tough being the protagonist of 'Submerged - LaSol,' janitor Stan Winston. (Nice one, guys.) Sure, he gets to work on the man-made,...

A Brief, Claustrophobic Adventure in 'Beacon'

Harpoon Surfing and Other Nautical Nonsense in 'Fishbane'

'Fishbane' recounts the adventures of our titular hero, who must use an endless supply of harpoons to persevere through a series of puzzling...

Your New Addiction: 'GIRP'

We don't like this game at all. To make the beleaguered character climb out of what looks like a pretty nasty dungeon, you have to hit different letters (to move his hands) while pounding on the shift or CTRL keys just so (to flex his muscles, of course). To be frank, we hate 'GIRP.' Our puny hand-eye coordination is not up to the task of pressing multiple buttons at once to make the stupid guy...

Augusta National Designs 'Masters' Game, Still Not Sure About the Whole Women Thing

Augusta National, home to the prestigious Masters golf tournament, will finally allow women...to play its new video game. That's right -- the stodgiest country club known (exclusively) to man is releasing its own video game, in an apparent attempt to leapfrog the 20th century, and dive head-first into the 21st. 'Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2012: The Masters,' unveiled today, has reportedly been in...

Blast a Hole Through a Balloon Dog in 'Jeff Koons Must Die'

Are you just sick to death of the assembly line production of big-name modern art? Does the fact that Jeff Koons employs an army of assistants to construct "his" work make you want to obliterate a Balloon Dog with a rocket launcher? Artist Hunter Jonakin understands how you feel. His 'Jeff Koons Must Die!!!' arcade cabinet lets the player wander a 3-D gallery space and destroy any of the...

Dive Into the Depths With 'Beneath the Waves'

'The Journey Home' Revels in the Joys of Nintendo Hard Gaming

We've been feeling homesick, with nothing but these games to soothe our longing. Our picks this week will leave you yearning for a mom-cooked meal, or joyously reliving the day you left the nest. Thank God our daily commute has never, ever been as rough as the one portrayed in 'The Journey Home.' If it were, we'd never leave home in the first place. (Not that we really do anyway. Ah, the...

Voice-Controlled Game 'Pah!' Guarantees You'll Be the Most Obnoxious Subway Rider

Aahhhh. Pah! Pah! Aaahhhh. What's that you ask? Oh, nothing -- just the dulcet tones of the most annoying video game ever created. A tall claim, what with all the Zynga choices out there, but we really do think this one's got it in the bag. This Lucky7 Labs iPhone game is voice-controlled; "aah" moves the ship, while "pah!" fires away. Multiply that by an entire subway car full of players,...

Classic Arcade Deaths Compiled in Amazing Video

There isn't much to say about this clip from BoingBoing. It's simply a compilation of classic death animations from timeless games like 'PacMan,' 'Robocop,' 'Joust,' and 'Mortal Kombat.' All of that senseless violence is then overlaid with a chiptune rendition of Tears for Fears' 'Mad World.' Perfect....

'Get Home' Merges Music, Gaming, and a Message

We've been feeling homesick, with nothing but these games to soothe our longing. Our picks this week will leave you yearning for a mom-cooked meal, or joyously reliving the day you left the nest.

While the game fits the song's lyrics more aptly than its indie pop...

Nintendo 3DS: Not a Gaming Revolution, Still Makes Hands Happy

The best way for me to start off my hands-on with the Nintendo 3DS is to be completely honest about my relationship with the Nintendo DS; I love the little split-screened device. I have a white Lite from 2007, and have never found the need to upgrade. That was until the E3 Expo last year, when Nintendo trotted out these little guys to a crowd practically electrified with excitement. But the 3-D...

TriForce Won't Let the Police Stand Between Him and a New 3DS

Isaiah 'TriForce' Johnson recently ran into some trouble with New York City police, who didn't much care for the way he was standing outside a local Best Buy. Little did they know, though, that TriForce was just lining up to get his hands on the new Nintendo 3DS, which launches on Sunday. Then again, the cops probably had no way of knowing that, since TriForce was the only person in line....
