This week, Steam has added two new free-to-play games to its library: Realm of the Mad God and Fallen Earth.
Realm of the Mad God is described as a "cooperative MMO bullet hell shooter," and features permanent death, class quests, and achievements. Fallen Earth is a post-apocalyptic third person shooter, previously pay-to-play, set in the Grand-Canyon. Returning veterans through steam will get 3 days of Commander Premium and a Hermit Crab pet.
ArenaNet is now taking signups for the public beta of Guild Wars 2. Until 6PM GMT this Friday, you can head over to the game's mainpage and register for the trial, which will earn you a placement in one of the game's upcoming beta events.
ArenaNet had initially teased beta signups for its friends in the press, but says it'll “aggressively ramp up the size of our beta test events” come March and April – which is where you come in, provided you're not reading this any more and have already rushed to enter your details at the game's page. Most sites previewed the game late last year and... well, let's just say that as your friend and blogger in these matters, I am confident recommending one more time that you consider just signing up for the beta.
Peter Molyneux debuted his virtual boy, Milo, a couple of E3s ago when Kinect was called Natal, and though he's talked about it, he's never shown us more... until now. We were starting to wonder - it wouldn't be the first time Molyneux's over-hyped an idea he later abandoned.
After a decade of wayward spin-offs and convoluted sequels, it looks like the once world-famous Mortal Kombat brand is about to make a serious comeback. Gone are the silly character designs and borderline cartoonish fatalities – this is ultra violence at its peak, a no-compromises bloodbath of limbs, organs and bones. And all this before I even touched the controller.
Yes, it’s a 2D fighter that ostensibly looks and plays like the original three games. But it’s not business as usual – the moves flow into each other much more naturally and allow for a bit of creativity when it comes to juggles and fake-out moves. If you played MK II or MK3, you’ll probably get the hang of it right away, even though some of the classic moves have changed button inputs. Noth

Users can explore the world of Neopia with their Neopets and interact with each other through the NeoBoards, NeoMail, and guilds.
The main goal in Moshi Monsters is to keep your monster well fed and entertained. There are several indicators to track your monster’s status; Mood, Health, and Happiness.

I put online browser-based games together, compared with each other, to find I missed the coverage of a couple of highly rated and prized free browser games. While taking all rpg game or mmorpg of themes and genres，and strategy game as well account, I am still unable to review and play all of games listed on the webgame portal, but I have to part reluctantly with what one rocks but buries!

Being a team player in co-op blows. Reviving fallen partners, sharing your ammo with them, watching their back like a creepy online stalker. Balls to that, we say. That's why we're unofficially starting a official campaign to teach and celebrate the ways of acting like a douche in co-op. Follow these steps wise readers, and soon you too can be ruining everyone's fun and being that guy. Dicks of co-op: we salute your despicable, titanic testes.

May almighty Jebus look down upon and protect Mr. and Mrs. Leeroy Jenkins senior, for they are responsible for spawning the greatest gamer in the history of humanity.

MMOs. They're all about crap, F-key combat and spending three weeks making a pair of socks, aren't they? Not so, actually. Massively multiplayer, connected gaming holds the potential for so much more than the generic, life-sucking dragon-troubling that we've all seen far too much of by now.
With MMOFPS Huxley on the way, MAG announced at E3 and online cops and robbers sim APB coming too, we're finally starting to see the true variety of fun that the MMO approach can bring about. Inspired by said games, we've had a look at which existing franchises would benefit from a massive number of multiple players and detailed our plans for exactly how we'd make them work. Read on, and get those credit cards ready for your inevitable subscriptions. We'll keep them reasonable, honestly we will.
Whether it’s from a friend, parent, or well-meaning but obviously disinterested grandparent, we’ve all been asked some variation of the question: “What’s that you’re doing there?” Our first instinct is to continue our near-comatose screen gazing until the threat moves on, but every once in a while we’re forced to answer the dreaded follow-up question: “Why’s it fun?” That’s when the nightmare begins.
If you’re lucky, you’re playing a game like Portal or Super Mario Galaxy – both of which have been scientifically proven to be instantaneously fun for all people. No explanation required. But what happens when you’re rearranging furniture in Animal Crossing, or – worse yet -- doing anything in WarioWare? That’s when it hits you: You really have no idea why you enjoy this game so much. You’ve formed a parasitic bond with your game console over the past 80 hours, but your brain blue scr
