Seems pretty cool. *downloading*
Do you guys/gals know any more freeware games that are worth trying?

An nds title : 999 - 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
I was not a fan of visual novels, but the NDS kinda changed me - I loved the Ace Attorney series and Last Window, but this games is the shit. I always get bored of games that have you complete the game multiple times to get the "true ending", but this actually had me experiencing all 5-6 endings! Every time you start the game again you get something different, new puzzles and dialogues based on your choices. Of course, I needed a guide on what choices to follow in order to have all the endings, but the first three were just achieved by doing different choices every time. The story and the puzzles is really what keeps this game going. I even learned of things I totaly ignored that existed, like prosopagnosia (inability to recognize human faces). What I really didn't like was the actual ending, but sincerly, it doesn't matter. This game had me wondering hundreds of questions every time I got an ending, and the puzzles are just great.
What I really hated is the inability to skip puzzler you have already solved in previous gameplays, but you can still skip known dialogues... most of them. The adventure genre is still alive, and we owe that to japan. Arigatou, Nippon!
8/10

If you play the sequel, Virtues Last Reward, be warned theres a save-game breaking bug in it.

The only thing they've ever updated/patched is mario kart 7. Even though Rayman 3D would need it.

I think its upto the developers to issue a patch.
http://kotaku.com/5983443/four-month...ve+erasing-bug

To be honest, I am skeptical they are putting much effort into it.
At the very least a patch could simply be made that refuses to save in that area.

I tried this with an emulator... unfortunately, the rom was in japanese and I could not appreciate it fully (and I got bored with that damn room you start in because I was stuck). Did you find an english version ?

staying on topic, there are more bugs nowedays than there have been. The whole "Download add-ons and patches from the internet" concept has killed beta testing. Take skyrim for exemple, a game with so many bugs would have never made it to the market in the 90's or early 2000s.

SGK - Try CoolRom

A new beginning - final cut
I was about to give it a 8/10. A nice old-styled point n click adventures, one of those they don't make that often anymore. Well fuck it, my savegames are corrupted and I can't find any on the internet! I'm at chapter 8 and I'm too lazy to replay this game. I'll never see the ending I guess.

If you're into point and click adventures and you have an Android device or a n Iphone don't miss yesterday by pendulo studios, the creators of the runaway series. Guess what? There's a button to show you all the objects u can interact with! +1 to Pandulo for not turning their new work into another "search the hidden item" game!

Not really sure there is any similar games to world of goo. Its gameplay is pretty unique. Closest you will get gameplay wise is some of those bridge-building / engineering games.
Naturally they lack the quirky humor.

Style wise the nearest you will get is the follow-up by some of the same people. But the gameplay of that is utterly different...if you can call it gameplay at all. Little Inferno.....seems to be just chucking objects at a fire.

I am trying to think of other games but its tough.
Maybe some Knytt Storys modules (Dont Eat The Mushroom!), mostly for the humour.
