May 12, 2019

It’s been a while since I last discussed what I’m reading in any depth – five years, to be exact! So as a change from gaming and anime posts, here’s a few of the titles in my current manga lineup:

500 Word Game Reviews: Legend of Grimrock

April 28, 2019

As a fan of old grid-based RPGs like Lands of Lore (which I’ve reviewed previously!) and Stonekeep, I was curious whether a more recent take on the genre would still capture that old-school feel. And so:

500 Word Game Reviews – Elder Sign: Omens

March 16, 2019

This month’s game was SUPPOSED to be Realms of the Haunting, but the 1996 DOS game turned out to be too spooky for me! Couldn’t even make it past the first few rooms, didn’t even run into any enemies, it just freaked me out too much from the get go. 😮

So while I get settled into playing some tame city builder instead, here’s an old review which I haven’t posted here yet. Horror-themed board game conversions, I can just about handle. 😛

Winter 2019 Mid-Season Rankings

500 Word Game Reviews: Age of Wonders II

February 24, 2019

Not all turn-based strategy games can be Heroes of Might and Magic III, but it doesn’t hurt to occasionally look at some of the other franchises which were around at the same time. 🙂
