And you thought you were the best at toilet humor: Codemasters has announced that it has signed “The Turds” – their first free casual game that resurrects the “cult character” brand.
The publisher has signed a deal that will see The Turds starring in a series of free web games developed by Pilot Interactive. So what exactly are The Turds?
The Turds are a collection of roguish comedic characters born from the best of toilet humour. The Turds satirise known characters from film, entertainment and sport, such as The Bogfather, Freddy Pooger, The Turdinator, Wayne Pooney, and characters from history, including Shat the Ripper, Brave Fart, and, of course, Adolf Sh*tler . Pacemaker UK’s range of The Turds figurines, posters, and soft toys has fast established a multi-million business with a loyal fan base that has been extended internationally.
Donkey Pong and The Adventures of Rimdiana Jones is now live for those who will not be offended by the following bits of text:
Donkey Pong And The Adventures Of Rimdiana Jones sees plopular action hero, Rimdiana Jones, and agent Marilyn Muckroe, on a search for the legendary fartifact, the Lost Arse. However, disaster strikes: Marilyn is captured by giant ape-sh*t, Donkey Pong, and is to be sacrificed to a mysterious giant turd, worshipped by the lost Pongo Tribe.
Can Rimdy get his gal back and find his Lost Arse? To rescue Marilyn Muckroe, help Rimdy jump, run, climb and smash his way to the top of each increasingly difficult level. Watch out for those evil Islanders and pray your nostrils don’t catch a blood curdling wiff of the mighty Pong!

From Gamespot comes word that Pheonix Wright will be heading back to stores. A Capcom representative spoke to Gamespot, saying that the company has shipped more units of the game which has earned the affection of many thanks to its original gameplay mechanics, among other things. First released for the DS in October, stores soon ran out of stock, forcing gamers to look for it on auction sites, with many copies going for as much as triple the $30 price tag.
According to the report, Capcom has re-issued the game due to high “demand” and that the courtroom title should now be back in stores, retailing at its original price point.
