Funny News: Online game subscriptions up 43 percent in 2005

March 11, 2006: Online game subscriptions up 43 percent in 2005

World of Warcraft's popularity helps boost MMO and casual gaming to a $2 billion international payday; console games to take 29 percent of OL market by 2011.
Whatever you think of World of Warcraft, there's no denying that it has reshaped the gaming landscape. As of last month, Blizzard Entertainment's massively multiplayer online role-playing game had over 6 million subscribers, making the population of its virtual world larger than many European countries.

The latest evidence of WOW's influence comes in the form of a report from DFC Intelligence. The San Diego-based game-industry research company has just issued a report which says that "subscription revenue from online games was $2 billion in 2005." WOW came out in November 2004 and has been among the top three games in DFC-rival NPD Group's weekly PC-bestseller list since it hit the market.

Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess reviewed FunnyGames, November 27, 2006
Way back in 1987, a fat little boy (or possibly an elf) in a floppy green hat picked up his wooden sword, and went off to save Princess Zelda. It was an enormous, revolutionary game that created the Action/RPG genre all by itself. I was only a lad myself at the time, but if I had been a video game critic back then I would have given it an...

...You must solve lots of classic Zelda style puzzles, lighting torches to open doors, burning spider webs that block your path, blowing up boulders with your bombs, shooting out the right bits with your bow, and using your chain shot to reach areas you couldn't before. Sound familiar? That's because it is, but it's still good fun, and Twilight Princess Zelda maintains a respectable level of challenge, without ever being frustrating or getting you lost...

Switchball Review FunnyGames, November 29, 2007
The holiday rush means that a lot of games fall by the wayside in favor of more glitzy, big budget affairs. It's a shame, cause a lot of these games are developed by small studios that really don't have a sliver of the marketing might of a big house...and yet, oftentimes their games are just as good if not better! Take for example Switchball, an XBLA game developed by Atomic Elbow.

Switchball has you controlling a marble, rolling it over obstacles to reach a gyrocopter finish line. It's very much in the spirit of Marble Madness, albeit with a focus on puzzle solving rather than racing to the bottom and...
