Dungeon Situational – A PC Lair

With the approach of Matt Colville’s Strongholds and Followers, I feel inclined to offer my own idea of a singular base of operations in which players may stash their gear, return to repair their equipment, and to rest in relative safety. From here our players may roam out in pursuit of wealth and glory, to return again and tend their wounds, study, and reflect upon their journey. In time, it may become too small for their needs, and they may wish to move on, or they may instead choose to build and expand.

This article is rules-light, but still utilises Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition as a reference point. (more…)

Five Year Anniversary of Rogue Legacy

Five years ago, Rogue Legacy was just released. The game was amazing, if you ever played it back then. It didn’t change, for many years, before it finally came back in a fifth year anniversary update, surprising many people in the process – Me included. I mention quite frequently how I like to get a game to completion, then to go ahead and mark it as 100%. With the update, Rogue Legacy became one of the titles I was at 100% complete on, to nearly 100%. If you’ve never heard of Rogue Legacy before, read on for a bit of a summary of what the game’s about, as well as some information on the update.

The Road To 100%: Final Fantasy VIII

Last week, I wrote a review of the Square Enix classic – But those of you who’ve followed this website long enough will know full well that I love to completely beat a game, not just complete the story. Steam achievements are something I go absolutely nuts for, even though there’s barely any reason to do so. This time around, I decided to get my RPG game on, which considering the last big RPG I 100%’d was Skyrim, this would have been a doddle by contrast… Or… Would it?

Video Game Review: TANGLEWOOD – A Nostaglically Beautiful Puzzle/Platformer

Taking a page from the past in game development, studios, consisting of developer Matt Phillips, looked to bring us a that would have fit in with our titles from the past. This SEGA Megadrive inspired titled is a puzzle platformer which I recently got ahold of. The game looks and sounds good, but how well does it play? I look past the past and into what this title holds for gamers new and old alike. Join me as we stroll through a true retro gem – In 2018.

Video Game Review: Roller Coaster Tycoon Classic

I remember being a child, wanting to go to Thorpe Park and ended up going to a different theme park called Thorpe Park, due to. Instead of ending up in Surrey, we found ourselves in a place called Cleethorpe. From that day, I vowed to create the greatest theme parks in the world – But I was a bit too young, so I played Roller Coaster Tycoon! Now, with the power of smartphones, Roller Coaster Tycoon is on our phones and tables – And no, this isn’t some dumbed down wannabe either..!

Free Game Review: Path of Exile

Hack n Slash goodness in a game that vowed to be the next Diablo, a game that’s absolutely free to play. It can only be Path of Exile. Named 2013 PC Game of the Year by GameSpot and best PC role-playing game of 2013 by IGN, it’s had high praise indeed. Now that it’s 2017, does the game still stand, or is it falling apart? With microtransactions as the primary means of keeping the game alive, is it just floating by because of this, or is this a very solid game? Here’s our complete run down of this free-to-play extravaganza.

Video Game Review: Turmoil

There are few things in life more boring than the fluctuating market that is the oil industry. I mean seriously, prices go up, prices go down… And to make a full game out of that concept sounds like a dreadful idea. Or is it? Turmoil is a single-player oil extracting and selling game, which sees you buying the equipment to drill into and suck out all of the oil of a plot of land, then sell it on for a profit to Left Inc or Right Inc. Intrigued about selling oil? Then be prepared to check out Turmoil in this in depth review.

*No, this isn’t Turmoil from the ZX Spectrum.
