stupid web games

For some reason lately I’ve found myself spending an inordinate amount of time playing stupid web games. Since I’ve challenged myself to actually BLOG shit instead of thinking of things that would make excellent blog posts and then going to sleep… It’s meaningless, it’s talking to hear myself talk, yadda yadda yadda. It’s my house, suck it up.

Sudoku Combat – Nearly every morning I start with one of those wacky Sudoku things. I’m sure there’s 101 places to play them online, but this is the first elegant one I’ve found. I am really not good at them, honestly. I keep at it because it’s the good kind of frustrating and I hold out hope that I may actually improve my brain somehow. My best efforts are 5 minutes, fyi…

Motherload – This game is incredibly addictive. I’m still trying to figure out a proper strategy but I can tell you that you shouldn’t go below 1000′ with the first 2 tiers of fuel tanks.

Clash N Slash – From the same MiniClip site as Motherload. I just played this for the first time yesterday and it seemed fun. YMMV.

N – I am ninja? I’ve unlocked the first 20 levels or so…of like 1059102. If you watch the teaser screens it gets about 50 times more complex than the toughest level I’ve cleared. Incredibly well done game.

Stick Arena – Like all online FPS games it’s more fun with friends. 4 or 5 people in a private arena > pug.

Andre’s NES emulator – Java base NESticle. With exception of the crazy imports just about everything you could want to play is available. My only complaint is that the game window is a 2″ x 2″ square on a 1680×1050 widescreen 🙁

DHTML Lemmings – uh… do I need to ‘splain this one?

Raiden-X – Courtesy of digg. I’ve actually just deleted this one and had to page through digg to find the URL again. Once you’ve finished it without dying (on hard, no less) it’s not that entertaining. Be that as it may, I still played a lot of this one. The save feature is a welcome addition to any gamelet.

That should keep any bored nerd busy until the next staff meeting. Enjoy.
