Noooo! they're coming, the universe is about to end, the robots with the evil bolling balls of doom, their bats from hell and their constant focus on sport, fairplay, and the extermination of all sentient life forms!
In the little time we have left before the cricket robots arrive however, here's some updates all reflective of mechanical nasty things that go clunk in the night!
First off something new for fans of first person shooters. Our forum's very own Skylord brings us a first beata version of humans vs robots, a game in which you play as a human, and there is a bunch of robots, and they don't really get on very well.
The game is free to download and try out, and involves multiplayer cooperation against swarms of enemy robots. For moree info and to leave any feedback see This here topic

But what if you just want to get away from those nasty cricket robots as quickly as possible? Well I suggest getting into your car and driving, and hay you know you might be able to drive over the edge of the universe.
For your driving pleasure here is Mine racer, first game from new developer 2mb. The game is an action paked arcade style driving game in which your goal is to survive as long as possible picking up the most coins as you race around in your high powered vehicle.
The game is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, and costs five usd, that's roughly four euroes or three British pounds.
You can go and grab Mine racer Here on the 2mb website and feel free to deposit any thoughts in This here topic
Last up before the final Over is something many people have been wanting for a long while. Echo quadrent is a turn based space exploration, colonization and trading stratogy game available for Windows by new developer Freeman 69.
Purchice fleets from cargo ships to drednaughts, colonize new worlds, accept cargo contracts and contend with strange aliens in a randomly generated set of star systems, though be ware of space pirates (who are nearly as nasty as Cricket robots).
Now since methinks one of those evil cricket robots is stepping up to the bat I'd better run, after all I've got a reservation for the Restaurant at the end of the universe and it looks like that won't be too long away, so goodb ------
