Unfinished business from my childhood… not only did I get the nostalgia factor, but also the satisfaction of finally seeing the story through to the end. 😀

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!

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.
