Revenge of the Sunfish

A good friend of mine showed me a YouTube video of this game being played. It is by far one of the most bizarre games ever created... and it intrigued me.

It's hard to tell what's happening in the game, as the levels are very inconsistent. Each level is in a sense, it's own mini game. Visuals, characters and gameplay drastically change. What I thought was pretty cool is how you progress through the game. You're given a certain amount of lives per each level, and depending if you pass of fail the level, you'll go to either Level A or B... and so forth.

It's not very easy too. You'll find yourself dying more often than... living. A lot of the levels just require you to get to the end without hitting any enemies, some are keyboard mashers, and other levels ask you stupid puzzling questions.

Psychedelic visuals, poor character animations, artwork that looks like it's been drawn by a 6 year old... Revenge of the Sunfish has it all. And it's only a puny 20 MB so even the most inferior systems can run this garbage.

You may get an error message about a missing dll file when trying to run the game. You can download it here:

Just put it in the same folder as the game's executable.

Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta

If you purchased Infamous 2 or you are a PS Plus member, you'll have exclusive access to the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta. If you don't have it now, it's too late, as the servers are being shut down July 14th for awhile until the full game is released November 1st this year.

There are 3 maps in the beta. The newest one being Yemen, which wasn't originally available at first, but updates are constantly being sent out. I find them a bit small in comparison to other multiplayer games, but not too small so that it's constant chaos (e.g Nuketown). And they're nicely done too. Lot's of tactical options for navigation.

I haven't played the Uncharted 2 multiplayer, but from what I've read, Uncharted 3 multiplayer is a step up. You have a new "kickbacks" feature, temporary enhancements to your gameplay, like spawning an RPG, speed boosts and cluster bombs.

The pace is very different from a regular FPS multiplayer, but it's a lot of fun. I like 3 team deathmatch, where you are paired up with a buddy and take on 2 other teams. And the controls are the same as the single player mode. You can scale up walls, climb ledges and monkey around.

Definitely something to check out, I can't wait for the full version :)
