Android Marketplace Gets Gooey

Indeed, guys and gals of the USS Internet, prep your favorite Google-certified WonderThing and saddle up, because the acclaimed World of Goo is now available on the Android Marketplace. What's better than a puzzle-themed, hallucinogenic brain-wrong of the first order? As it happens, the answer is a heavily discounted one. Until December 5th, World of Goo can be snatched up for $2.99, 40% off the normal price. IndyGames helpfully mentions that, due to the array of Android devices, one would be wise to check the free demo for compatibility issues before purchasing the full game. Still, they note that according to the devblog, "the game will run on most phones with Android 2.2 or newer and on all tablets." I've spent a few hours with World of Goo, and thus can attest to its addictive, hypnotic charm. It's fun, visually interesting, and an all around enjoyable experience, assuming that unlike me, such games don't run the risk of "devouring your free time."

As a closing thought, to all my fellow Android users - former actually, given that my lovely tablet died a rather undignified death some months ago - It's about d*mn time we got our due. Yeah, these Apple kids think they've got it made with their iThings, slavishly prostrating themselves before the "Genius Bar" to guide their path to artificial happiness. However, we've got something they don't: dignity. So I say we make ourselves know, and yell from the rooftops in one, united voice: "No, I will not bow at the altar of Apple - towering like a monolith before its flock, all bleating like so many sheep - that lumbering, multinational corporation. United in purpose and exercising our God-given free will, we make a stand her and now, and pledge our support to the other multinational corporation!"

To arms! (or something)

*sigh* Yeah, looked over the article and did indeed find some typos -- think i got everything (just have a couple minutes before catching the bus). Apologies, I'm usually quite OCD about this kind of stuff.

Chu Chu Rocket of Dreamcast fame is on the market for 99 cents. You guys report on that yet? Its an amazing port with 3D graphics. I was convinced it would be the gba version, but no, its the full game. It looks fantastic on my Galaxy Tab to boot and runs on my phone perfectly! Try it. Maybe Sega will give us Sonic the Hedgehog next if people buy Chu Chu Rocket.

Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted to say that I have truly enjoyed browsing your blog posts.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
