Three for the Road: January 9th, 2011.

Three for the Road[ JAN . 09 . 2011 ]
 
 01.09.2011Welcome back! This week I'm trying out something a bit different.. at least as far as presentation goes. I've decided to replace the game thumbnail screenshots with youtube videos (at least, whenever possible). This way, you will be able to get more of an idea of how a game plays before you actually go to the trouble of downloading it.

And before the rash of "the video is too small!" comments hit.. remember you can tap the lower right corner of the video bar (box with four arrows) to zoom the video fullscreen.. then just hit [ESCAPE] once the video is done to return to the webpage.

Anyway, I'm interested to hear how you guys (and gals) feel about this format.. so leave a comment!

Three for the Road[ JAN . 02 . 2011 ]
 

Welcome back folks. I hope everyone had a great New Years! You may have noticed that we skipped last weeks Quick Peeks segment, and that's simply due to things being fairly hectic around here... Add to that, I'm also working on getting my Armchair Arcade Radio segment finished up.

Anyway, we've got a great selection of games lined up for today. First up is a remake of one of the first real-time 3D games for an 8-bit system. Second, a remake of an early split genre action game with a Halloween theme. Lastly, a curtain fire shoot'em with a resemblance to the great Touhou shooters by ZUN.

Welcome back to Three for the Road. So I've been sitting here this morning lounging to some Richard Cheese and trying to figure out what we should take a look at. So far we've covered quite a few platformers and shoot'em up's but we haven't checked out that many puzzlers...

So that's just what we're going to do this week.

Another week and another three great freeware games for you to check out. A couple of them are even cross platform, so you Mac and Linux folks can also have a go. This week I've included two great 2D platformers into the mix and the third game is an exceptional work of interactive fiction created by Christine Love which explores topics oft not explored in many games.

We are back with another edition of Three for the Road. I had a lot of fun cobbling this edition together this week. Instead of just reviewing indie and homebrew titles, I started to investigate some older software for computers and consoles. Many of these titles were once commercial but have since been religated to abandonware status due to their IP holder being a dissolved company.. or the author just not enforcing his/her copyright due to the age of the software and the inaccessibility of the parent platform. That said, they're easy to find with a simple Google search.

Anyway, let's get to the games...
