Weekly Contest: Thumbwalking?

Jun 08: 

After admitting my own idiocy last week for walking around while using a BlackBerry, it occurred to me that we need some kind of snappy catch-phrase for it, like the BlackBerry prayer, BlackBerry shuffle, or the BlackBerry zombie. Let’s get those creative juices flowing, lads, because the one who can nail the phrase that fits will get a copy of Magmic’s brand new, critically acclaimed Miner 2049er. I’m still chewing through the game myself, and it’s pretty sweet. Review to come this afternoon.

LAST WEEK’S WINNER is Jeff, for taking the long view that the iPhone is still going to be around and new in 90 days. Jeff will be winning Magmic’s Deer Hunter 2, appropriately enough, since like the patient hunter, he will strike his prey only when the moment is right. … Man, ninjas who hunted deer would be awesome.

While we’ve got some lifelong gamers swooning with nostalgia over the release of Magmic’s Miner 2049er, I was born a year after this one came out, so unless anyone’s got the gonads to bust my chops for not playing the original on a Commodore while in the womb, you’ll to have to forgive my lack of fuzzy-wuzziness.

I still liked it, though, don’t worry. More after the jump.
