    One More Step

    10 February, 2013 • 0 Comments

    I think I was quite spoiled, when it comes to adventure games. My love for the genre was kindled by playing some very good games at an early, formative age. Though the exact order is somewhat muddled now by the mists of time, I recall playing Pyramid: Challenge of the Pharaoh’s Dream in primary school,...

    Dream(fall) Come True

    12 November, 2012 • 3 Comments

    I apologise for that title. You will recall that my favourite game is Riven. The Myst games in general dominate my toplist, but in the second spot, breathing Riven in the neck, is The Longest Journey. I love The Longest Journey. It has its flaws, but I am willing to completely ignore them, because...

    I’m having a bit of D&D withdrawal. It’s been a good while now since last I played the game, and a few months since I even wrote something about my world to release some of the steam. Today, I finally watched this year’s Acquisitions Incorporated episode, and many laughs were had. I also recently...

    Five of a Thing: D&D Monsters

    16 April, 2012 • 4 Comments

    One of the things I like about D&D is the ridiculous number of monsters it has accumulated. There are whole pages dedicated to some of the sillier critters the game has now left behind. There are still some really weird ones in the mix, but I think most of them have some cool feature...
