    Nice article, definitely intrigued me.

    Reset Generation Hits Macs, Kongregate

    Even though it's a web-based game, it wasn't playable on Mac or Linux until now. Pretty good stuff, addictive game and pretty funny (though some of the characters were just so absurdly broad and stereotypical, the joke got old quickly, like the Pokemon girl, the ninja and the Sonic stand-in).

    PopCap Wins Big With Plants vs. Zombies

    I do wonder why PopCap allowed Steam to undercut their price by half ($10 vs. $20 that they offer on their site). It's mostly annoying because I want to purchase the Mac version.

    179: The Slot-1 Secret

    This may be true - but as with the Playstation 2's success, the overall success of the DS system has granted possibilities for more hardcore titles released due to the base numbers being large enough to support them. This year alone we've gotten big critically acclaimed genre titles...

    179: The Slot-1 Secret

    Interesting article. It's hard to get conclusive information on the rates and effects of DS flash cart piracy, but it is surprisingly widespread and easy. I'm quite saddened at the Contra IV numbers, it definitely deserved more success than that, despite being on the extreme side of hardcore...
