I've had some requests for more news articles. Eh, VP isn't a news site, so that can be tricky. It's got be something new, good, and related. Being it's Christmas time (at my house anyway), I though I would get everybody some presents.
I had to figure something out. So, here you go. Here are a couple of games for you loyal VP fans. Naturally, they are all skinnable freeware games.
This one is a DX-Ball clone game... which is a breakout clone... which is pong on acid. Anyway, follow the bouncing ball, mash the bricks, and make you own levels. You can download or make your own skins. It's a fun game to mess around with, and has a kid mode that is great for little nephews and those who suck at video games. There also is a portable version for your flash drive.
Frets on Fire
In case you didn't guess this one is a clone of Guitar Hero. I haven't tried hooking up my PS2 controller adapter to it yet, but you know I'm gonna try.
Now not only is this one skinnable and portable, but you can get more songs for it too.

No not truly skinnable, but very original, there is also Jooleem
. It's yet another puzzle game, but not a clone of anything I've seen. A new puzzle game is always welcome in my book. The graphics are in separate files, but that just makes them easier to edit. Skinning support isn't official.
No, if that doesn't make it feel like Christmas, I've an extra bit of gaming goodness for you. Our friends at Shell Extension City
found a gem of an article about over 150 cool flash games
. My favs are Raiden X
& Winter Bells
. Not skinnable, but if you could embed one in your active desktop, that would so rock.
So, here's that news article you've all been wanting, and an early Merry Christmas
from all of us at VP.
