Imagine being put at the helm of a gargantuan Federation ship, zooming from base to base, relying on your allies as you gun down a Romulan fleet before laying siege to their luminescent base. Sounds fun, right? Well, Star Trek D-A-C didn’t get the memo, or at least it didn’t get the budget to pull “fun” off. D-A-C stands for Deathmatch, Assault, and Conquest, the three main modes. And if that name seems weak, just try playing this unimpressive game.
After a decade at sea, the quirky pirate Guybrush Threepwood has found his way to shore in Tales of Monkey Island, the latest installment in a highly stylized point-and-click adventure series that’s much loved for its zany banter. This episodic romp begins in the middle of its story as Guybrush accidentally resurrects his arch-nemesis, loses his wife, curses his hand, and releases a malicious pox across the oceans.
When the first Sims 3 expansion pack hit our desks, we figured it might be worth a look--y’know, maybe if our sock drawer had other plans that night.

Firemint's Real Racing was already one of the most buzzed-about iPhone apps, but the extra screen real estate and speedier processor gives Real Racing HD for the iPad much more room to shine, resulting in a true showcase title for Apple's new tablet.
Of all the colorful plush creations Chicago-based toy designer Shawnimals has released into the world -- including large mustaches (with their own smaller mustaches) and pork buns, each with eyes and a mouth -- its Ninjatown line of colorful ninjas has garnered the most attention, even resulting in a well-received Nintendo DS strategy game from mobile developer Venan. With the Venan Arcade publishing brand now established, the two companies have crossed paths to create an all-new Ninjatown experience for the iPhone, titled Ninjatown: Trees of Doom!
