500 Word Game Reviews: Lands of Lore – The Throne of Chaos

June 16, 2018

Despite loving older games, and playing mostly older games, I’ve just noticed that for some reason all the reviews I’ve posted here have been for games from the 21st Century, aside from The Longest Journey which just about creeps into nostalgia territory with its November 1999 release date… Time to fix that!

A very new game, by my standards at least. And apparently there’s a sequel on the way, too!

Still alive!

March 17, 2018

It’s been a few weeks since I posted here, my apologies! I was at an anime convention (Minamicon) last weekend, and was busy preparing for said convention the week before. I’ve fallen behind significantly on my weekly anime, so have spent all my evenings catching up on that. And I’ve been really busy at work on top it all off.

500 Word Game Reviews: Avernum 3

February 24, 2018

Another cross-post from TSR forums~

Avernum 3 (2002) – RPG, PC.

Note: this is a remake of the 1997 game Exile III (available free here), and has itself gotten a remake just last month in Avernum 3: Ruined World (available on Steam at a reasonable price).

500 Word Game Reviews: Cthulhu Saves the World

January 14, 2018

As part of my goal to spend more time on PC gaming this year, I’m writing short reviews for The Student Room forum. Emphasis on short, approx. 500 words, because I tend to ramble otherwise!

I thought I might cross-post some of those on here in case they’re of interest to people, but I won’t do it for every single review, and I certainly don’t want it to be the only content I post on this blog all year. It is a useful thing to be able to fall back on when I’m too busy to write something new though, as I am this weekend. 😛 Anyhow, as mentioned in the title, my first review is for:

Cthulhu Saves the World (2010) – RPG, PC.
