Overlooked Gems and V-Day Feb. 14th, 2011 @ 03:01 PM Reply

The Smithsonian American Art Museum will be having an exhibition called The Art of Video Games from March 16-September 30th. Alien Hominid is one of three nominees to be showcased under the Gamecube category in Era 5. Go vote for it to be showcased in the museum, that would be NEAT! If we make it, a DC NG Meetup might be in order.

BIG NEWS: GAME JAM 3 has been announced for February 18th-20th. See AustinBreed's post for more info.

On Friday we spent a few hours going through submissions from the previous week. Here are the ones I jotted down in my notes during the broadcast:

There was one submission we didn't watch due to not wanting to get kicked off Ustream, but I followed up on it and it was a good thing we didn't watch it.

Jonas Brothers Immolation and Ultimate Death Trap got front page spots for the weekend and we also stumbled across two old GameJacket games that no longer worked, so we got those cleaned out of the system. GO TEAM.

Oh and HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Show your love by favoriting some people today.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

FYI, all GameJacket games are broken as the company (or whatever) does not longer exist.

I can't believe they don't have anything from the Devil May Cry series in the PS2 section.

Also voted, hope you win.

That sucks so much. I was trying to play a game hosted by GameJacket the other day and wondered why it wasn't working.

Well, now I know why.

With the new layout we hope to go balls out with stuff... Also have a FUN idea for V-Day next year so fingers crossed on that one.

I tried to vote for Alien Hominid, but the site would not load the page after I click the era.

So many flashes. I'll never get around to all of them. An okay Valentine's day but I spent most of my day away from newgrounds so I might of missed some of the good stuff.

Voted for AH!

I think that it's a travesty, considering that there are Windows / DOS games there that people can play equally well on a console and some of the console games are point and click. The team of experts that put this together should be rounded up and shot.
