YASWTORBP

Just like everyone else I spent my weekend playing in the Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta. Or well, the part of my weekend that I could reasonably spend on gaming anyway. Time enough, it turns out, to get a Jedi Sentinel to level 18 and not much else. Unlike so many of you, I […]

Skyrim Impressions

I got to play a little bit of Skyrim this weekend. Not as much as I’d have liked, but enough to get a first impression. Reviewers all over the internet are either hyping the game to no end, condemning it as a shoddy console port, or both. I’m certainly not far enough into the game […]

In Which I Don’t Talk about WoW

I’ve picked up two (more or less turn-based) strategy games recently – Heroes of Might and Magic VI and Europa Universalis III. Alright, I have owned EU forever but never managed to get past the hurdle of “oh my god, so many numbers”. Now that I’ve had someone to explain the game to me (which […]

This first episode of a Fallout web-series looks quite promising indeed:

Indie Spotlight: Dungeons of Dredmor

Inconsequentia, Goddess of Sidequests tasked me with slaying the Drinker of Mechanisms the other day. I fought my way through a slew of Diggles and Deths [sic] more by courtesy of my sparkly vampire powers than my rusty sword but then I succumbed to the powers of said Drinker of Mechanisms.

Terraria

Normally I wait until I have played through a game and then give you guys a ten good things / ten bad things post pair. You know the drill. Terraria is different, though, in multiple ways. For one, I don’t think the game can actually be finished. For another, my good/bad format wouldn’t really cut […]

Ten Good Things About Dragon Age 2

My last post on the topic of Dragon Age 2 was rather negative, not surprisingly so I suppose, given that that is the structure of my review format. Today’s post will be all upsides – 10 to be specific. As always, these come in no particular order and claim neither to be complete nor to […]

Ten Bad Things About Dragon Age 2

I’m a huge fan of the original Dragon Age and despite the somewhat “meh” review I gave its expansion Awakening, I’ve had Dragon Age 2 on preorder for months and was very excited to get to play it. It took me two weeks to get through – with work and Rift cutting into my free […]

Darkspore Beta Impressions

Back in july, calling them out for naming a game after the failure that was Spore. I now had the pleasure to take part in two beta weekends of Darkspore (technically three, but I was out of town for one) and must say the game isn’t as bad as the Heritage suggests.
