Just wanted to get a couple of free PC games/services out there. I've pretty much been playing all of these while my 360s gone.
Note: All the downloadable games here are under a 1 gig download
Kongregate is a site with tons of web-based games. Its not your normal game site where everything is just a Galaga knockoff though. There are tons of intresting games like a 2D flash version of Portal and Desktop Tower Defense 1.5 (I'm a sucker for a good tower defense game, and this is one of the best out there). Many of the games have achievements built in, the servers have a chat-system that allows you tot chat with someone no matter what game they're playing, and Kongregate also has friendslist capabilities. If anyone wants to add my my user name is GalvanizedNails.
Free Colonization, or FreeCol for short, is a fan-made remake of the popular Civ spin-off Sid Meires Colonization. Your goal here is to first, come over to the New World and establish a successful group of colonies, and then one you are self-suffiecent and have a nice sized military built up, declare independence from your home country. The gameplay is micromanage heavy, so Civ fans will feel right at home. The only thing I could ask for in this is a better in-game tutorial, and I recomend you actually read the instruction files that come with the download. Of all the games here, this one is my personal favorite, and has the most depth for a free game I've seen in a while.
This game comes to you from the folks that made Puzzle Quest (original PSP and DS versions, not the many, many ports) and it just screams potential. Warlords Online is a browser based game where you choose from one of many races (elves, goblins, generic fantasy etc.) and then earn gold through a simple puzzle game. Sounds stupid right? Well, not really since that gold can be used to purchase different kinds troops like dragons, calvary, and archers. Those troops can then be taken to an overworld map where they can be used in chance-based battles to take over chunks of territory for your race. Its alot cooler than it sounds, just play it. Even though the concept is great, some players have found out glitches that let them take over most of the territorys on the map far too quickly, and territorys can change hands far to quickly no matter how many troops you assign to defend them. Like I said, it screams potential and is one of the coolest ideas I've seen in a while.
Heres a quickie, theres not much to write about it. Found at www.wayoftheninja.org N is a platformer with tons of levls and a awesome level editor.
