- Looks like it's Sunday night, and I have a whole bunch of completely random links to hand out, some of which you may even be interested in:

- Fun-Motion has been clever enough to point out Flash game Double Wires, and Matthew Wegner explains it's "...a small Flash game by d_of_i, a Japanese developer best known for his Falling Sands game (as well as Cat Sledding and some other physics games and experiments). Despite its small scope and limited production value, I think Double Wires does some things very well."

- Brandon has been doing some really fun updates at Insert Credit recently, and I had to motion at an edible retro treat: "Can't get enough NES chocolate? Didn't win the cart? That same fellow mailed me to say he has a new product up, though this one's a bit more mass-produced. This time it's a NES controller-shaped chocolate bar, of which he has 50 for $15 each." Only the auction already ended, and only 1 was bought? DOH!

- Posty at Shoot The Core has done a brief PC dojin shooter-related update to note that Freams / sectionS "have released the full version of Overray for download, again on Vector. It's nice to see doujin developers continue to support older games and share them when their time in the sun has passed." Oh wait, The2Bears has pictures, too, and it looks great in a side-scrolling Gradius/R-Type-y fashion.

- I already knew about the PSP version of Sid Meier's Pirates!, but the QT3 folks have been kind enough to notice that it's only $19.99 at EB Games - only one review so far, but the Xbox version was lots of fun, so it should be similar japes. Personally, I'm looking forward to Sid Meier's Penguins!

- A random and very justified complaint from a GSW confidant. Hey, Capcom, why didn't you proofread Phoenix Wright: Justice For All for DS properly? Our anonyfriend notes of the icky typos: "The worst one I remember was a dialogue window that said: "Hmm, where there any other clues you could gleam from this piece of evidence?" But also: "This is the only place that the snow has been trounced upon." And: "For someone who's father was just murdered, she seems awfully perky..." Uhm, YUCK.

- Over at Wired News' Game|Life blog, Chris Baker has mentioned the Mindcandy Amiga DVD, something which I have been remiss in doing (partly cos it's only a little bit game-related!) "I'm really happy that a collective of crackers and geeks have transferred some of the most amazing Amiga demos to DVD. The Mindcandy disc features 30 great examples of chiptune techno and lo-res 3D grafx that transport me back to the olden days... this disc also has a documentary about a demo festival in Germany from as recently as 2003, plus commentary tracks on each demo from geek luminaries like GameSetWatch guru and pal of the WiredGameblog Simon Carless." I really wish I'd done more commentaries (ran out of time!), but the disc is awesome, and game folks like Remedy (Max Payne) and Io Interactive (Hitman) cut their teeth on these kind of demos, so buy the disc and check them out if you have a chance.
