Scratch that, I caved and picked up Angry Birds

I couldn't help myself. It was just sitting there, staring at me from the Mac App Store. I've only played a few levels thus far, but already I can see why everyone's atwitter about it.

Still, I'd love to give that lonely little app a bit of company on my rather deserted desktop by buying, sooner rather than later, a Mac port of Game Dev Story, too. 

Speaking of Game Dev Story, I just read that developer Kairosoft recently announced that Game Dev Story 2 will come to the States eventually--although fans shouldn't expect it to appear on any of Apple's App Stores anytime soon. (Read about it here.) Oh, and apparently the company also is prepping a similar title that places players in the shoes of a game store manager. (Read about that game here.)

Finally, another game I'd love to see on the Mac App Store is Electro Master. I have no idea how it plays, but I don't really care because: 1) it has a blocky, retro look and 2) it includes fruit! (See the grapes in the screenshot above.)

I saw the screen shot and thought, "I want it! I don't care what it is!"

That's how you know the screen cap is good!

Ha! I'm glad you like the looks of it, too :)
