where are the good new games?

Is it just me or are we in a new game slump? Not that I'm going through DTs or anything (well not too bad, I can still type). It seems like pickings have been slim of late.

In the last 2 to 3 weeks. Before then, it seemed like there was either a new game or a major update in a variety of categories (shooters, TD, puzzles, etc.) that was coming out every week.

After Galaxy on Fire and Wolf3d, I honestly can't complain for a while. I have more than enough "great" games let alone good ones.

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

flight control was 3/6. let's golf was 3/15.

i'm talking about a weekly fix, i need it or i can't deal with the world as it's currently spinning type of problem here. i mean come on. how many new apps come into app store each week? is it too much to ask for a rippin' game each day, or each hour for that matter? i know, there is the issue of oh man i don't have room for that and what do you mean you spent the mortgage on idevice games, but those are just details that we need to work out.

Im good on games right now thanks to Sway and Galaxy on Fire until Legion of Amon, Zenonia, Touch K.O., and Star Defense to name a handful that look promising.
