There wasn’t a lot of time for me last moth to write some posts, but here’s the next Time Wasters, just so I won’t mess with the tradition. I hope I can post some more Internetspotter-like posts this month.

The Time Wasters of March 2009:

Saints Row 2 (Paid Game for PC,  Xbox 360 and PS3)
Since Saints Row was a succesful game, there was a need for a Saints Row 2. This second part in the Saints Row  Is nearly a copy of the first part, but it has new missions, a little bit of extra territory and a few new options like better character customisation and a multiplayer mode for the story line. If you liked the first part, you will like this part without a doubt, but keep in mind that it’s a little buggy,

Nation States (Browser Based United Nations Simulation)
A game that’s fun for a while. You first create a nation, and every day you get some questions about problems in your country. Depending on the answers of your question, your state can change from a democracy to a communist dictatorship and vice versa. You can even apply for a spot in the Nation States United Nations  and make ‘virtual global’ decisions.

SWAT 2 (Flash Game)
Snipers and stickmen… what an ideal combination. The game is quite easy, and a bit bloody, but you’ll enjoy yourself for a couple of minutes. When you’ve cleared it, you can always play SWAT 1, and SWAT 3 seems t o be coming soon…

Runes of Magic (Free to play MMORPG)
There isn’t much to say about this game. It’s a poor working WoW clone (the game just stops at random moments), and a lot of ex-WoW players seem to play this game. I have to admit that the quests are a lot better than those of other free MMO’s, but it still isn’t something special. The only use of this game seems to be getting rid of your WoW addiction…

Blood Frontier(Open Source FPS)
Blood Frontier is one of the many open source FPS’s although it’s maybe the only one that’s suitable for a bigger audience. Things like finding online/network games and the controls are really easy and the graphics beat a lot of the other open source FPS’s. This with the Unreal Tournament (HEADSHOT!) like gameplay and the low specs make it a potential succes, and it’s still only in the beta phase. Very promising indeed.
