Goofball Goals may not match the mighty FIFA for graphical fidelity or technical prowess, but as far as fun goes, it kicks it out the park. Everything about the game is so wrong that it’s so right, with players controlling like a herd of drunken ballerina sumo wrestlers, it’s probably the worst soccer game you’ll ever play, but ALSO the best. It’s just so much fun watching your players amble around the field, falling over each other, smashing scenery, trying to kick the ball and falling on their asses.
The combination of awkwardly animated ragdoll players and realistic physics is perfect, allowing for some truly hilarious moments. There are also mini-games and a Level editor which is great fun to play around with. You owe it to yourself to try Goofball Goals, it’s the best worst soccer game ever made.
Of Guards And Thieves (spotted by burningyesterday) is an excellent multi-player top-down stealth/action game with fast paced arcade gameplay, where you can either play as stealthy Thieves or powerful Guards.
Guards have to guard 6 objects scattered across the map, with only one being the real target for the thieves. The guards don’t know which one the real target is though, so either have to guard all 6, or try and figure out which one the thieves are after. Guards win if they protect the object for the duration of the match and the thieves win if they escape with it.
Guards cannot see in the Dark, so must use their flashlight and other artificial light sources (which can be turned on and off) to see. On the other hand Thieves have night-vision goggles, so can use the darkness to their advantage, sneaking through the shadows, they can’t match the guards in a straight-up fight though, so must be careful not to get spotted. It’s like a big game of hide-and seek, but with knives and assault rifles.
Although Of Guards and Thieves is in Beta, it’s already a highly polished, balanced, fully functioning game, there are always plenty of games to choose from on the servers, and there’s even a perks and upgrades system, with unlocks gained through XP.
Of Guards and Thieves is a fantastic use of asymmetric multiplayer mechanics, both sides are great fun to play. Playing as a thief proves that stealth is much more satisfying when playing against real people instead of AI, while playing as a guard makes you feel some empathy for all those guards you killed in Metal Gear Solid, it’s a hard job!
The Oscars are always full of class, elegance, and snazzy bouffants. But they’re also the ultimate opportunity for the internet to come out in force and poke fun at all the moments as they happen…
These aren’t just pictures.
They’re the pictures.

“This game needs online play, I don’t have friends who like to play games in person,” they say in the comments.
There is a new resurgence of local multiplayer games hitting the market, including games like the Sportsfriends bundle and Towerfall, and many of them offer no way to play online. If you want to have fun, you need to invite people over, or find a group of players and a place to meet. It may be time to buy an extra controller or two.
The problem is that many players simply don’t know other people who like to play video games, and that’s where the discussion ends. This isn’t a problem that should keep you from playing different games, we need to begin thinking about isolated players as a problem that needs solving.
