Play Winnose, reunite a moai statue with his other half

Adult Swim always seems to publish games that have really strange setups, but are backed by solid gameplay mechanics and can easily eat up an afternoon or possibly even a work day. Winnose, developed by Todd Luke, appea...

Onimusha Soul coming to the PS3 in Japan

New Breath of Fire 6 screens show a sliver of promise

I like to be mister optimism when it comes to games...even games that are slated for mobile and browser based platforms. But I've had an extremely hard time believing that the sixth entry in the Breath of Fire series is going...

Evil Genius is back on Facebook of all places

I love me some Evil Genius. Enough that I'm willing to try Evil Genius Online, which is Rebellion's free-to-play approximation of the classic base-building game. It's playable now in open beta on Facebook and while it's got t...

McPixel developer's new web game is pure chaos
by Jordan Devore

"Your car is falling apart in the middle of the night in the middle of a highway. Make sure not to die. This is important. Control the car using hand."

This is Night Rider Turbo, the chaotic new game from McPixel creator Sos Sosowski. It's his contribution to the Charity Game Jam and it's worth a few minutes of your time, or possibly many, many more minutes depending on how determined you are to compete on the leaderboards. Some maniac managed to drive for 36.853 KM!

The slightest twitch of your hand usually results in a component of your car being ripped off, and that's when the insanity begins. Night Rider Turbo can be grasped quickly given its simple premise, but that's not to say it's easy. Quite the opposite. This represents everything I love about browser-based games, and the soundtrack is excellent (hit the radio to cycle the songs).

Google celebrates 50 years of Doctor Who with a mini-game photo
Google celebrates 50 years of Doctor Who with a mini-game
by Joshua Derocher

Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and Google is celebrating with an awesome little game. I suggest that you just go check it out, without reading my description of it.

If you must know what it is without clicking on it for yourself, it's an adorable set of puzzles staring Doctor Who. You get to pick any Doctor you want, and then you guide him on a pixellated adventure to find all six letters from the word "Google". The puzzles will have you timing your moves around Weeping Angels, Daleks, and Cybermen. If you mess up and die, you'll come back as the next regeneration of The Doctor.

If the doodle isn't available in your timezone yet, or if you aren't reading this on Friday, this link will take you right to the doodle's archive page.

Please fight in the comments about who is the best Doctor. Hint: Tom Baker is the best.

Cookie Clicker gets inside your psychological kitchen photo
Cookie Clicker gets inside your psychological kitchen
by Brett Makedonski

What's your CPS? That question is a litmus test, and if you have no idea what it means, good. You're safe. I envy you. I'm not as fortunate. I, like a whole bunch of other people, fell prey to the recent Internet phenomenon, Cookie Clicker, and things just aren't the same anymore. By the way, my CPS is 1.8 billion, as if any of it really matters.

CPS, or Cookies per Second for the uninitiated, is the statistic that's at the heart of Cookie Clicker. Ask anyone that plays, and they'll be able to ballpark their most recent figure. Their answer is unimportant. What is important is the fact that regardless of progression, their response will almost always come with a twinge of pride and accomplishment.

That's because we're not just baking cookies here; we're building empires. And if Cookie Clicker does one thing extremely well, it's giving the player a constant pat on the back, assuring them at every step of the way that their cookie kingdom is growing. Likewise, the next big breakthrough is always right around the corner. Always.
