We’re very excited that Verizon Games is one of a select group of online places where, as of today, you'll be able to find “Bejeweled 3,” the much-anticipated next edition in the “Bejeweled” series from Popcap.

This is a big deal for a lover of games. When we talk about games, there are a lot of ways to slice them, but one really useful way is: hardcore versus casual. You know how when people say games, the first thing that pops in your head is a game controller and something blowing up on a TV screen? That would be what we call hardcore. The other kind, the kind that men and women both play day in and day out, the kind that are easy to pick up and hard to master -- we call those casual. And in casual games, Bejeweled is the reigning champ.

Verizon set out a couple of years ago to offer as broad a selection of games as we could manage through the online PC platform. Today, Verizon Games boasts the world’s largest online games library, with more than 1,800 games representing every genre -- from kids’ games like “Clifford the Big Red Dog” and “Jumpstart” to casual games like “Poppit! To Go” and “Luxor” to hardcore games like the “Tomb Raider” series.


These aren’t demos or limited versions.  We stock our library with the full title, the kind that you’d purchase in a store or by downloading. If you subscribe, you get every game in the library and can play as long as you remain a member.

Suddenly, footsteps behind you. You try to turn around, but are strangely sluggish on your feet. You see an enemy rushing toward you, and as he starts to fire, everything goes wrong. His movements become jerky, and aiming your weapon is like moving through peanut butter. The image freezes, and by the time it’s back, you’re finished.

The gamers out there will no doubt be familiar with this frustrating scenario – sometimes your Internet connection simply can’t keep up with the action on screen. In games, this doesn’t just make for a less enjoyable experience, it can completely ruin your experience. That’s why one of the major benefits of FiOS Internet is having a pipe big enough to handle fast-paced action. Read more...
