A couple of people pointed out this advent calendar of code, which I guess counts as today's "Flash Timewaster", which is a term I haven't used in so long it has become outdated in the meantime. :) Collect stars by solving puzzles. Two puzzles will be made available on each day in the Advent calendar; the second puzzle is unlocked when you complete the first. Each puzzle grants one star. Good luck!
Anyway, this month's Retro Let's Play is Parasite Eve from 1998. Parasite Eve is a 1998 action role-playing horror video game developed and published by Square. The game is a sequel to the novel Parasite Eve, written by Hideaki Sena; it is also the first game in the Parasite Eve video game series. The story follows New York City police officer Aya Brea over a six-day span in 1997 as she attempts to stop the Eve, a woman who plans to destroy the human race through spontaneous human combustion. Players explore levels set in areas of New York while utilizing a pausable real-time combat system along with several role-playing game elements.

But if you prefer your games zoomy rather than spooky, this month's Retro Racing game is Star Wars Episode 1 Racer from 1999. Star Wars Episode I: Racer is a 1999 racing video game based on the podracing sequence featured in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. The game features all of the racers and race course on Tatooine featured in The Phantom Menace. It also adds several new courses, some on Tatooine, others on various planets. Several single player modes, including a tournament mode, are available for play. It also features multiplayer, the format of which varies by platform. Jake Lloyd and Lewis MacLeod, who portrayed Anakin Skywalker and Sebulba in The Phantom Menace, reprise their roles in the game.
