The Vault When you want serious casual gaming, you want something with chutzpah. You need to harness the power of anger and boulder tossing and hamburger grilling and car repair and taking out the garbage. You need something manly, and thus have we provided you with three ultra-manly games from our well-stocked archives. What's more manly than fishing? Explodey science? Robots? Nothing, we tell you. Nothing!

There's also crazy RPG running game and a game with cherries and a guy with really long legs. And if you thought "hey, I know what long legs are!", you're probably wrong, because this guy's legs are really long.

Weekend Download If you were given an apple, an orange, a bag full of thumb tacks, and a yearly subscription to I Just Made This Name Up magazine, could you turn it into a game? Maybe by rolling the fruit along the ground to see how many tacks you could collect before hitting the magazine fort? Fortunately, you don't have to be that creative to enjoy the fruits of other folk's creativity, as this weekend's collection of freeware games nicely illustrates!

The Vault It's a three letter genre you either love or love to hate. The RPG is one of the oldest types of games around, and has grown considerably from its early days at the hands of Miyamoto or Garriott. This week's Vault serves up three different examples of the genre that serve to remind us that there a million ways to incorporate it, but there hasn't been a decent Final Fantasy since Terra and Kefka. Yes, I went there.

The 99 Percent Bundle Bundling up indie games is what all the cool kids are doing these days, as is pricing them "pay what you want" while donating portions of the proceeds to charity. But here's something refreshingly different: The 99 Percent Bundle. This totally free collection of indie games aims to highlight some of the lesser-known developers out there, the people who continue to make the games they love and release them for free. It's sort of the indies of the indie community, and it's the perfect way to discover new titles you might have missed over the last few months.

Weekend Download As much as designers and players would love it to be true, games don't appear out of magical elf dust. They take hours, weeks, months and years to create, stitching together every line of code and every piece of artwork. To that end, many programmers and studios have taken to releasing alpha and beta games to drum up support, snagging players early to help with feedback and bug reports while the developer gets to continue drinking coffee and coding. Everybody wins, and we get more games, better games, and games at a more rapid pace!

The Vault Cats, gems, robots, and dwarves. What do they have in common? They're all starring in this week's installment of The Vault that celebrates some of our favourite Metroidvania style games! Running, jumping, exploring, tracking down new items and power ups... it's everything we love, and here are three of the games that have done it the best.

Mobile Monday Still not sure iOS devices are a serious gaming platform? Game designers sure think they are, and the result is more and more big games making their way to the touch screen. Minecraft is a fine example of this, and this week, it's making its iOS debut with a highly playable portable version of the desktop game!

The Vault Sometimes you'll play a game so memorable it'll stay with you for days. Other times it's the game's soundtrack that stays with you. In this week's Vault, we visit a rhythm game, a platformer, and a balance puzzler, all of which have some pretty intense earworms for audio. Prepare to get some catchy music stuck in your head.

The Vault It's Tuesday, which means another trip down to the JIG archive vault to dig up a few games from years ago that our newer visitors should not miss out on. This week I've picked out a few quirky little puzzle games that will thrill and delight you. No, really. Just give them a try and you'll see...

Mobile Monday Mobile games are strange, aren't they? On the one hand, they shouldn't be so complicated you can't get into them while, ahem, occupying the lavatory. On the other, they need to have enough complexity to keep you from doing your homework the night before it's due. There's no right or wrong solution, just a collection of gameplay concepts that either works or doesn't quite work. We're proud to report that every game we feature on Mobile Monday works quite well, the end result being lots of late homework assignments but no time wasted in the loo.

Weekend Download This week's games were presented before a panel of elite judges prior to publication. They were coffee tasting judges, but you gotta figure their impeccable sense of taste transfers from beverages to games, right? After rigorous screening, the scientifically-verified result is as such: three out of four coffee tasters think the games below are definitely very very fun! The fourth judge thinks they're "rather" fun, but that doesn't make for a very interesting pull quote...

Mobile Monday Back in 1991, when the original Another World was released, if you had told players they would be able to hold the game in their hands and play it with enhanced visuals using a full touch screen device, they would have laughed. Laughed in an "OMG THAT'LL BE AWESOME I LOVE THE FUTURE" kind of way. And now, with the iOS release of Another World, the prediction made by that creepy time traveler we met 20 years ago has come true!
