    Featured Facebook Game of the Week – Zombie Lane

    Oh my, zombies just keep on coming in all shapes and forms. In Zombie Lane, the main objective is to fight zombies and keep them out of the neighborhood… which needs to be continually rebuilt from the damage they do. This game has a lot going on, which I thought initially would discourage me from returning to it, but the hints, easy start, and tutorial aspects help quite a bit without constantly interfering. I love the customizable avatar, for some reason, that is usually pretty important to me.

    First Look: Resistance 3

    Yesterday we were treated to our first look at Insomniac’s Resistance 3. It was very interesting to see how they are moving the franchise forward. Resistance 3 follows Joseph Capelli’s journey. Since killing Nathan Hale, he has lived in hiding with his wife and kid and basically tries to survive from the Chimera invasions. In the demo, we were shown some new abilities the Chimera (and other baddies) now have. A cloaking device helps the Chimera keep hidden while sniping you from afar. First Person Shooter fans (particularly sniper experts) will love the challenge this presents. I already know this will be problematic for me. Visually, you can see where the chimera is by following the red laser site. Follow the site and send a stream of bullets at it. But as our guide showed us (someone that actually worked on the level) that doesn’t make it easy. He died

    Search the Gardens of Time on Facebook

    It’s spring… a perfect time to think about gardens. But these Gardens of Time are much more than your backyard variety gardens. These are extravagant gardens you can build using artifacts bought with money made by completing quests and finding lost objects throughout different scenes in time, helping the Time Society to solve mysteries and correct the course of history. “Gardens of Time redefines the previously solitary experience of downloadable hidden object games by adding a variety of social features so players can share the excitement and challenge with their friends,” said Playdom’s Senior Producer for Gardens of Time, John Hsu. “We want to give players the opportunity to collaborate, compete, and show off their achievements.” Gardens of Time allows Hidden Object lovers the opportunity to share and collaborate with their friends, or soon to be friends. The content is free to play (always a favorite), and, though the game
