Bioshock 2

Fallout 3: The Pitt Review
The download might be a little short for your money, depending on your tastes and how much bang you expect for your buck, but the quests are fun and The Pitt matches that feeling of despair that Fallout 3 does so well.

iDT has released the Champcar Challenge 00-04 mod for rFactor, a conversion of their Champcar mods for F1 Challenge.The mod includes five seasons of Champ Car racing from 2000 through 2004.

The official Ferrari racing game lets you drive the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano, the Ferrari 612 Scaglietti and Ferrari 430 at Mugello, one of the company’s trademark tracks. The game is not supposed to be a real simulation but more of a driving game, if you enjoy Ferraris and titles like GRID or Gran Turismo it’s worth to be checked out for sure– VirtualR.net

Balance of Power: 21st Century
Balance of Power: 21st Century places you in charge of the US straight after the 9/11 bombings and asks you to make numerous decisions about the welfare of the world. It’s a storybook style game where all goings-on happen in text form. Every decision you make has a consequence and it’s up to you to decide how to play – either be an evil dictator and scare every other leader into submission, or be kind and generous and win their approval.-Indiegames

A Crow in Hell 2
A Crow in Hell 2 is basically a follow-up to the similarly-titled release from late last year, where once again players are asked to guide a black bird from one room to another while avoiding contact with walls, ceilings, floors, and a variety of traps strategically placed to impede your progress.-Indiegames

Gen
Gen is all about guiding a bunch of spheres to a bigger sphere using the mouse as an ‘attractor mechanism’. The balls of light will follow the mouse pointer in a swooping sort of way, so it’s your job to make sure they don’t swing about too much and destroy themselves on deadly surroundings.-Indiegames

Monochro Observer:
The Black and White Puzzle Game

Monochro Observer is a tragic, lovely little puzzle game about two people from opposite sides of the visual spectrum, learning to work together towards a common goal, to finally taste the forbidden love that sparks between the deepest shadow and the shiniest, twinkliest, luminescent-i-est-iest light.– Jayisgames

A puzzle platformer.

Redstar Fall

The latest entry into the world of physics-based stacking / unstacking games is Redstar Fall a fun little gem from Zedarus at Armor Games. The goal of Redstar Fall is to, well, make the red star fall. To the bottom platform, that is, without letting it fall off into the bottomless chasm that waits below.– Jayisgames

The Great Attic Escape

Another great escape the room game from Mateusz Skutnik and Pastel Games.

Puzzle Dungeon
Puzzle Dungeon is a funny little adventure game from eyehook, the creator of Color Box. The title conjures up any number of different genres; perhaps a match-3 game like Puzzle Quest, or an RPG, or even a hidden-object adventure. As you will quickly find out, Puzzle Dungeon is none of the above. It is a simple, casual roguelike, the descendant of classics such as ADOM and NetHack.– Jayisgames
