If a dictionary entry for the phrase "long, strange road" existed, it likely would feature an image from Myst Online. The fantasy MMORPG began its checkered life as the multiplayer component of 2003's Uru: Ages Beyond Mist before being scrapped and subsequently revived by GameTap in 2007. Cyan...

Three years later, GameTap opened up servers for the game -- but a lack of subscribers led to them b...

So what is love? That's certainly the metaphysical question of the ages, isn't it? Is it simply an attraction to another gender, or is it a deep bond between two people that goes beyond mere friendship, and more into the realm of headbanging, suit and sunglasses wearing pride? Do I have the author...

In lieu of an upgradeable demo (they're not allowed on the App Store) the original Myst's iPhone and iPod Touch incarnation now has a "free version." Myst FREE is a glorified demo that allows players to explore Myst Island, but entering any of the "Ages" will require a full download and $5 charge -...

The classic brain bender Myst has arrived for iPhone and iPod Touch, notes WhatTheyPlay.

Seeing as we're fast approaching Halloween, I thought it would be appropriate to try to find a "scary" game to examine for Bury the Shovelware. I could have easily gone the "it's so bad, it's SCARY" route, but I thought it would be nice to avoid lame sarcasm. I spent most of this week's Top 5 gush...
