Nhex: Even using the free version with few parts, I’m surprised how fun it is. Damn you Maxis! I might have to get the full game after all… maybe. The online stuff seems incredibly well integrated.

BIG HOOS: It’s the greatest game ever gave.

Libcrypt: This is kinda fun… but it’s not a game! There’s nothing you can do with the guys once you make ’em besides stare at your kids. I suppose everyone who does this makes a guy with a fireball-shooting penis, eh?

Forksclovetofu: It’s like working with living Play-doh or sketching with a magic pen. Endlessly fascinating and innovative; I spent hours creating a zoo of lil’ buddies. God help me if they give you the option to physically produce these guys as sculptures or action figures; I’ll have to get another job to support my menagerie.

CraigG: I voted for this just because it’s the first Civ game I’ve played a lot since the original when I got it on my old Amiga 600. While I’d still rather play the original (and often still do), I can’t vote for that… so here’s a vote for a Civ IV expansion.

Will M: This game is pretty great, although it still has some issues IMO… namely, I don’t like aiming shots in ANY sports game with the movement stick.

GM: This is the first non-baseball sports game I’ve played in over a decade. Flicking the right stick is so much more satisfying then just mashing triangle, or whatever. This is a lot of fun, even though (for the most part) I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing.

Brilliam: The battles, while difficult, are not hair-pulling maddening meat grinders. Each is a well-thought out set piece, unlike the decidedly mediocre GameCube and especially dull Wii installment. While it might not stand quite up to the GBA incarnation, it is a genuinely great handheld turn-based strategy game.

Lamp: This is probably the hardest Fire Emblem game, though Sacred Stones is probably the best of the portable ones. I think I still have some disgustingly nerdy chart I made graphing leveling potential in order to choose the best class promotions.

Lamp: It looks pretty retarded but it also seems like a better version of Munchkin with more depth and hopefully just as much replayability. Only allowing four players is kind of a drag as we’re used to playing with as many as seven but OMG this is gonna be awesome.

Webinar: It’s funnnnnnnnnn

Tombot: I just know I will officially look like the biggest genius in town when I sit in front of my iMac with the big powered monitor speakers and plug my Nintendo into it with a dinky headphone cable so I can make loops with a stylus on a tiny touchscreen.

Jeff LeVine: I imported, fooled around with it for about an hour and then thought, “What the hell am I going to do with this thing?” It’s cool that they made a KORG you can mess around with on a DS, but it’s exactly as useful to me if I’d bought a real KORG… i.e. good for sitting in a corner collecting dust 😦
