First Shot: Crackdown 2

Crackdown 2 - 2.2.png

My favorite part of the first Crackdown was jumping from building to building, collecting agility orbs that let me jump higher and higher.  I was some sort of frog-themed superhero—frogman, perhaps—who could leap out of the sky, punch a dude, and then spring away again into aerial oblivion, arms cartwheeling in glee.  “Oh god,” the gang-members would say, “it’s frogman, defender of no one in particular, puncher of dudes.”

First Shot: Singularity

Singularity is a sci-fi shooter that’s part Bioshock, part Call of Duty 4, and part Dead Space, but it’s missing the pieces that made each of those games special. Plus it has Nolan North.

Neptune's Pride is Consuming My Mind

The ships.  There are a lot of them.

Neptune’s Pride is a long-form browser-based space-battle strategy game.  In it, between 4 and 12 players fight to control at least half of the stars on the map.  Everything happens in real time, and everything moves very slowly.  It takes many hours to travel even to neighboring star systems.  Entire games can take many weeks.  The game is awesome.
