If ever there was an entry point to IGN Assemble!, it’s this episode. Coinciding with the relaunch of the DC Universe, the crew talks about Justice League #1, Flashpoint #5, Uncanny X-Force, Secret Avengers, and the end of The Incredible Hulks. Even better, we rebrand this episode Secret Assemble in light of the totally sweet artwork that Assemble devotee Boy Akkerman sent in…

Interested in being the master of a whole world — or being a total slave to the rules of one? Two games newly added to GOG’s DRM-free lineup will let you experience both. Populous lets you build a world and a civilization, and then … you know, unleash natural disasters upon it.

Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar puts you in the role of a hero who must save the land of Britannia while adhering strictly to eight virtues. Thrift isn’t one of those virtues, but it’s still something you can practice with this game, as GOG is giving it away for free! If you want to pay for some Ultimas, the first three are also up.

JoystiqPopulous and Ultima IV hit GOG — and Ultima’s free originally appeared on Joystiq on Thu, 01 Sep 2011 22:00:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

It may not be Wednesday, or even Sunday, but that hasn’t stopped Zynga from updating FarmVille this evening with the launch of the third animal breeding building in what will eventually be a series of six. This newest building is the Zoo, and while that may sound a lot like a Wildlife Habitat, this Zoo instead allows you to store and breed some animals that you’d expect to see in Zoos, like Elephants, Bears, Penguins, Lions, Kangaroos and more. If anything about that list is exciting, it’s that we’ll finally be able to store those massive Elephants and reclaim all of that space on our land!

The Zoo must be built from scratch, just like the others, but you very well may have these items in your inventory already, as they’ve been used in other building projects before:

  • 10 Wrenches
  • 10 Pipes
  • 10 Shrubs

Once that’s done, you’ll have a new building that can store up to 20 of the above animals (again, there are 12 pages of available animals to store; this was just a slight preview), and you’ll even be given a free Elephant upon completion.

From here, the Zoo works similarly to the other breeding habitats that have been released previously, in that you’ll be able to collect from the Zoo once daily for a chance at either Animal Feed or a Rare / Common Mystery Baby. These babies come in round baby baskets, with yellow standing for common babies and blue standing for rare babies. Again, as usual, the common babies take just 10 Animal Feed to grow into adulthood, while rare babies take 30 Animal Feed.

Of course, there are also some goals available to complete along with this new building, and we’ll make sure to give you a guide to finishing those goals as soon as possible.

What do you think of the Zoo building? Were you hoping for the Aviary first, or are you happy to finally have a place to store bigger animals like Penguins and Elephants? Sound off in the comments.

I’ve been a fan of Mortal Kombat from the very second my mom told me I couldn’t play it (lol it’s my job now). Spike pits, decapitations, and Shaolin monks transforming into cheetahs define my ’90s fighting game experience. So ask me to pay $10 for some old school Mortal Kombat and I’m down for it, even if it’s a reminder that these games are cheap, frustrating, and dated…

Despite the omission of DeathSpank’s name from the title, The Baconing is very much a typical DeathSpank game. Besides the thong-wearing hero with a funny name, the action-adventure hybrid maintains the old formula of hack n’ slash combat paired with puzzles and quests. This familiarity is both a go…
