Omegathon V lineup has been revealed and it feels surprisingly casual. There's no Doom or Quake title like we've seen in every previous Omegathon. Also new: starting the first round with a non-board game (Jenga has been pushed to round 5). Here's the list:
- Round 1: Peggle
- Round 2: Boom Blox
- Round 3: Pictionary
- Round 4: Rock Band (Our guess is Rock Band 2)
- Round 5: Jenga
- Final Round: *** TOP SECRET ***
While last year's Omegathon skipped the previous tradition of using a classic retro title (Pong, Combat, Tengen Tetris), every year has featured an id Software shooter. With Rage, Doom 4 and the new Wolfenstein looking unlikely, we're trying to think of another potential, unreleased FPS that could top last year's surprise Halo 3 inclusion. If Tycho and Gabe are looking to make our heads explode, maybe they can get Duke Nukem Forever. We won't find out until minutes before the final round on Sunday, August 31 at 4:30 PM PT.
In the meantime, check out the list of past Omegathon lineups, and feel free to make your own and play along at home.
