Remember Meteos? The vertical block sliding? The fast, frantic action, and the maddening tick-tock of the clock at the top of your screen? The sweeping, dramatic story of taking your alien ship into the heart of madness and bombarding it with pretty squares and blocks? The others don't understand....

Odin Sphere (PS2) Vanillaware's side-scrolling action RPG caught me completely off guard when it came out, but I fell instantly in love with the game's style. Practically everything about Odin Sphere is unique: the circular levels; the gigantic, beautifully-drawn sprites; the bizarre food-crafti...

Sure enough, we informed you last week that we would be taking this week's Game Night off because of the holiday. And, we put up the poll for determining this upcoming session's game. We just wanted to remind all of you who might have missed it by including that same poll below. So, vote for next ...

Even with some of us being very late (see: the author of this post), we still managed to get our game on. Races were had in Mario Kart DS and we tasted the utterly horrible, yet very familiar, taste of defeat. Oh well, there is always next week to reclaim our honor as kinda OK at games. Oh, wait, ...

Sadly, I was unable to partake in the festivities last night. No worries, we've been doing this Game Night thing for quite awhile now. So, you can bet next week I'll be there, with several bells on. In the meantime, why don't we figure out what our theme game for next week will be by voting below....

This week has been a close race in determining what our theme game will be for tonight. And, if you're a regular here at Game Night, you're likely already forming a picture of what games are running at the top of the pack. So, let's not waste time. Head past the break and get all of the details yo...

Last night's Game Night was kind of a bust, we must admit. There wasn't that great a turnout and connection problems plagued the participants. But, hey, that's life; we can't control everything. But, there's always next week to look forward to. And, it's also time to reset the poll, so let's get t...

Sound the trumpets, for it is the time of celebration. With it being Thursday and all, we've got conquest on our mind. We're sure you are thinking the same, as you walk through today in a mindless trance. Your thoughts are elsewhere, focused on a single goal: trashing the competition at Game Night...

Even though it is Friday and a cause for celebration, a part of us still weeps for the passing of Game Night. For an hour, it made us feel alive and now we have to return back to our mundane lives, the thought of conquest during Game Night still fresh on our mind. Oh well, there's always next week...

As the work week nears its end, Game Night presents itself. Like a small rodent ducking its head out from a hole in the ground, it quickly scans the surrounding landscape for predators. Oh, but it doesn't know about us, as we spring from behind it, grip it and wrestle it to the ground. We have con...

Last night's session was, again, hindered by Nintendo's servers. For some reason, everyone reported lag across the board. That isn't to say we weren't able to get our game on, though. Oh well, can't win 'em all, eh? Hit up the poll to vote for next week's theme game and we'll see you there! ...

When we woke this morning, it was very reminiscent of Christmas mornings as a child, as we sprung out of bed and ran out to the living room with a large smile on our face. We knew this day of all days would ensure that we got to at least play one game, no matter how busy we are. Are you ready to t...

As far as Game Nights go, last night's was one of the best. We had a great turn-out, with plenty of people in the chat, conversing and gaming. It was fun, to say the least, and we want it to get even funner better. So, make sure you hit up the poll below to vote on next week's theme game and tell ...

Welcome to Thursday, folks, and welcome to our weekly Game Night session. See, we get together once a week and throw down in some Wi-Fi games. If you have any Wi-Fi games, you should stop by our chat and play, as we can almost guarantee someone else will be trying to play that game, too. Where sho...

Nintendo's Wi-Fi Connect service just wouldn't cut us a break last night, as several people in the room experienced problems trying to connect in Mario Kart DS. But, we are determined to enjoy our Game Night every week, crappy service be damned. So, hit up the poll below and vote for next week's t...

For some reason, the iced tea in our glass tastes sweeter, the air seems crisper and we're in a wonderful mood. We wonder why that is? Oh, right, it's Thursday. That means we get to play some games with you all tonight! Awesome!...

Planet Puzzle League has never had the popularity of Tetris, but it's no less addictive with its block-sliding formula. If you're a fan of Tetris Attack, Panel de Pon, or polished puzzle titles in general, you need to have a copy of this game. Amazon, seeking to right the wrongs of our video gami...

Did you folks have fun at Game Night yesterday? We sure did, as not only did we manage to get some Tetris DS in, but also a rather lengthy match of Metroid Prime Hunters. As far as Game Nights go, it was one of the better ones. Yet, there were still some people who just couldn't get in on the acti...

Relax, the weekend is almost here. And that means that Game Night is almost here, as well. I've been looking forward to this, having had to miss last week's session, so I hope you're prepared to attend. If you are, head past the post break for all of the details. If you aren't, then beg for forgive...

Sadly, personal obligations kept me from attending Game Night yesterday. This will not be the case next week, so I anxiously await that day. Until then, let's all sit back, relax, and prepare to enjoy the weekend. And, before you go and enjoy the upcoming days off from responsibility (for most of y...
