Google Chrome: It sits on my desktop, leering with its Hal 9000 eye, and asking in a creepily monotone voice, "Why won't you play with me
Dave Jesse?" After several months of treating it like my unwanted stepchild, while Firefox got all the attention/spyware, I decided to take the youngin' for a ride on what my computer illiterate uncle still calls the information superhighway. "I wanna go to the Chrome Web Store!" chirped the little one upon loading, and so we set off in search of this potential Mecca. That is when I came across a little title called Realm of the Mad God, a wonderfully simple (or simply wonderful) top-down MMO from Wild Shadow Studios. Hopping on the retro bandwagon, graphics are bare bones: 8-bit sprites trot along 8-bit landscapes, shooting 8-bit bolts of "something" at 8-bit enemies. The game plays like a twin stick shooter, adapted for keyboard and mouse: your standard "WSAD" controls movement, and you simply click the whatever direction you'd like to shoot. There are a variety of character classes, which are unlocked as your level up - for example, building your wizard to level 5 unlocks the priest class - but your free account is given a mere one character slot. More can be unlocked with gold that, as one might expect, must be purchased - capitalist devils. As you traverse the pixel-scape, you'll battle swarms of enemies and bosses (sort of) for experience and gear, all the while making improvised teams with fellow players, in the interest of felling a particularly bothersome baddy. It's a bit like your WoW "PUG," but for people with crippling ADD.
I highly encourage giving the game a shot. It's free, it's simple, and most importantly, it's quite a bit of fun. Realm of the Mad God: Because you didn't need that weekend anyway.
