5 Minute Mmorpg: Hurry Up and Get It Over With
If you don’t have the time, patience (or money) to commit to games like World of Warcraft, you might want to check out this game… 5 Minute MMORPG works exactly as advertised. The browser-based Flash game lets you go online against other live players (okay, 10 simultaneous players isn’t really massive), and play as one of over 30 different characters.

Cream Fox: the Creepiest Game You’Ll Play Today
While the one-line description of Pixeljam’s Cream Wolf is “You drive an ice cream truck,” there’s something far more insidious going on in this quirky retro-style Flash game.

Desktop Connect Vnc App: and Just Like That, Flash on the iPad!

Desktop Connect Vnc App: and Just Like That, Flash on the iPad!
If you ask me, the perfect tablet would be a combination of the iPad and the JooJoo; i.e. an iPad with a camera, support for Flash and a USB port. Fortunately for (future) iPad owners, the Desktop Connect app by Antecea takes care of two of those missing features.

I’ve been a cubicle dweller several times, although all of them short-lived. Corporate vets may be more amused at Thup Games’ HRmageddon, a Flash game which puts the gore in merger. What? Anyway. HRmageddon’s “story” starts when your company, Gray Solutions, merges with Beige Dynamics.

Christopher Hyde of Critical Distance was dissatisfied with a lot of the so-called “AAA games” released last year, on account of them being too expensive and …too long? While Hyde didn’t point out any specific games, and his problem with their length is puzzling to say the least,  his disappointment has led him to point out 99 free and “pretty darned spectacular” games that can be found on the Internet.

Everyday the Same Dream Offers a Glimpse of the Past, the Present, and Most Likely the Future as Well
No one wants monotony. And if the monotonous thing happens to be necessary to survive, then you come to hate it even more. Because if you could escape it altogether anytime you wanted you wouldn’t have any reason to hate it.
