Did you enjoy Alien Hominid? Thank Adobe Flash. The Binding of Isaac? The original version ran like crap, but that was Flash, too. Flash eats battery life and makes computer fans run loud, but it’s been important to many developers, which is why they got scared for a while today.
The first Super Smash Flash was originally submitted to Newgrounds almost 8 years ago, in 2006. You can play its sequel right now, though it is still in development—in fact, it's getting a huge update very soon.

Super Mario Bros. Crossover, the flash game in which you play through the levels of Super Mario Bros. as Samus, Link, Ryu Hayabusa and other heroes from the Nintendo Entertainment System's glory days, is readying a 3.0 update with even more obscure nostalgia and retro goodness.
If you've ever had a nightmare about bombing in a musical performance onstage (and who hasn't?), then Drop A Beat, Giuseppe! is for you.
When NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre spoke at a press conference today, he lambasted video games as a medium that "sells and sows violence against its own people."

It's a tale as old as time. A man needs to go meet his lady. He sets off, usually to the right. There's a monster in the way. He jumps on it!
If your Science skill was too low, or if you just enjoyed the LSAT problem of trying to figure out how to brute force hack your way into a terminal in Fallout 3 then this flash game is for you. And look, no need to back out of the terminal before making your final attempt!
Neil A. Armstrong, first human to set foot on extraterrestrial soil, died today at age 82.
Why isn't Kurt Vonnegut's influence seen in more video games? I couldn't help but wonder that after playing through Vonneguts & Glory, a new (very short) browser game by Shaun Inman based on Kurt Vonnegut's classic novel Slaughterhouse-Five.
