After Hours

GAMING: Greetings, Dr. Falken. Do You Want To Play a Game?

I've been reliving some of that cold war, 1980's, Red Dawn angst by watching Jericho on CBS, and I recently screened Wargames for my teenage son (who, quite to my surprise, enjoyed it immensely).  So imagine my post-apocalyptic joy when Macworld mentioned a game (PC only for now, but available for the Mac soon) called DEFCON: Everybody Dies.  It's the old Global Thermonuclear War game (which I sorely loved on my C64) on steroids.  The downloadable demo has both single player and online multiplayer modes.  I haven't fired it up yet only because I knew that if I did, this post would have been delayed...significantly.  

Just remember, in a game where everybody loses, it can still be fun to try and lose the least.
