GameTap pulls one of its random Tuesday updates this week immediately causing us to become suspicious. There must be some dastardly trick in here somewhere for this April Fool's update to make sense?! Typically the Tuesday updates are only reserved for exclusive releases or holidays. We're pretty ...

GameTap adds one of the stranger Tycoon-esque games this week with Hot Dog King. It's not hard to guess the game is a hot dog store business sim, but the hook is that players hire big-breasted women to work the counter. The ladies are quite high maintenance, but they're also the main attraction of...

GameTap brings us into conflict and then denies our operations this week with Conflict: Denied Ops. Yup, still one of the most foolish game titles in the past year. Beyond that there's a puzzle game involving flowers and a hardcore naval strategy game. This week's odd offerings are diminished by l...

GameTap's additions this week take us from the depths of the Atlantic to the mountains of Nepal, but before we get to those games let's visit the local dive bar. This week's new game worth checking out is Fastlane Pinball, if only for the sake of comparison to all the other competent pinball games...

This week GameTap serves up a little bit of whimsy and some decent puzzle action. Granted, this week's addition of D.N.A. to the service can't hold a candle to the crackpipe of Peggle, but it's still a good casual fix. GameTap also serves up indie title Gumboy Crazy Adventures. Somewhere between K...

It's another one of those "let's talk about the free game" weeks, with the under-appreciated Rogue Trooper entering free game rotation at GameTap. It's not mind-bendingly awesome, but if you're looking for a competent third-person shooter to play it certainly fits the bill. In case any Mac owners ...

It's been quite the devil and angel week with the GameTap news.

As for new game releases this week the entire industry seems to be in a tryptophan induced coma and GameTap is no exception. It's a quiet week for anything new in general. The new titles this week on the service are probably titles that a majority of people haven't heard of before and it won't alt...
