For those who loved Skyrates
, here comes another casual, online community game from the brain-trust at the Carnegie Mellon University school of game design. Choose your instrument, join a band, and play old-school mini-games to build up your skills. Or choose track B to start your own band, recruit new members, and manage your gigs and travel. (And BTW, Skyrates
has now rebooted from the beginning, with a new map and much more fun stuff implemented.)

Instead of yet another social networking site, why not try an anti-social
networking site? Presenting Spatula of Death
, where the goal is enmity, not community. Smite your
enemies or watch other people smite theirs, and you'll get to watch a poor stuffed monkey get whapped on the head with a spatula over a live web feed. Rate other users' smites, and have your own smites rated, earning Douchebag Points (TM) for the most cutting remarks and cruel behavior. The site was created as a thesis presentation for Tisch ITP at NYU; watch the creator discuss it

- a retro-arcade-style shooter for Mac OS X. The author's page
describes how it was written in 3 weeks for a contest - it's entertained me for considerably longer than that.

- Inspired by the well-beloved Avalon Hill board game Acquire

It's Flash Friday, but surprisingly no one's mentioned this yet. Since you seem to be fans of Orisinal's work
, I thought it prudent to point out that he's put up a new game just in time for the holidays.
So, let's go play some Winterbells
, shall we?

.) Kiss your precious, fleeting motes of productivity goodbye, cube-farmers!

"The streets of 2030's New York remain the only venues not under the thumb of the monolithic corporations. Manhattan’s three major hacker gangs have developed black-market technology that enables them to jack into the phone network though the payphone nodes, and redirect the payment deposited into that phone into their own coffers." The premise of a new cyberpunk novel? Nope. A new street game
you can play with your friends

of the best places in the United States assume their expert can choose the absolute best place to live, or to work, or to raise a family—for everyone. Wouldn't a better way to find great places to live in America
be based on your
unique priorities and preferences?
