While wondering around one of our local game stores (Vintage Stock) with my family, I saw a game that hadn’t heard of before. I picked it up to read the summary on the case and was given a vague description of an island rather than an idea of the game play. I pulled out my […]
Way back in 1991, I played an RPG game called Legend Quest at an arcade in Kansas City. I had long been a gamer and spent many an hour trying to own the top scores for games like Pac-Man, Asteroids, 1942, Double-Dragon, and Out-Run, but this game was very different from those. You stood on […]
When a group thinks they can go without a support player; it is fairly amusing to be on the opposing team in an overpowered “bow before my might” sort of way.
Bethesda graced all of the PC virtual reality adopters with one of the best RPG games every created. Skyrim arrived on the PC in all its VR glory on April 2nd. I had pre-ordered it and took the day off from my day job for the occasion. We patiently checked Steam every 5 minutes after […]
