Talisman Review

Talisman is a board game that most “serious” board gamers either seem to love or hate. Its polarizing nature is due to its combination of traditional RPG elements such as character stats and hit points, mixed with random elements such as rolling dice to move and drawing cards for encounters.  (more…)

Trilobyte Games Currently Crowdfunding Another Sequel to The 7th Guest

7th-guest-mini.jpg

For gamers of a certain age, CD-Rom games like Myst and The 7th Guest were revolutionary. Instead of loading up your PC game with a half-dozen floppy disks, you only needed one shiny disc containing hours of full-motion video and dozens of pre-rendered backgrounds. Following up on their announcement in March, Trilobyte has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the necessary funds for a new 7th Guest game.  (more…)

If you are a person who demands graphics in your games, you can move along, because there’s nothing for you in A Dark Room. But if you can put that little issue aside, you just might fall in love with this town-building-sim-meets-RPG that has been stripped down to its bare essentials. Who needs graphics anyway? (more…)

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft Review

Does any company have a better grasp on what makes a game triple-A than Blizzard? The company responsible for Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo, three genre-defining blockbuster franchises, has decided to step into the collectible card game genre with Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Although this is Blizzard’s first attempt at an online card game, it shouldn’t be a surprise that it’s packed with detail and play-tested to perfection.  (more…)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Review

Is there anything in gaming that feels more exhilarating than web-swinging through the streets of New York as Spider-Man? It doesn’t really matter how many times it’s been done before, it just never gets old. In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, you take control of the webslinger in his efforts to stop a gang war led by Electro and his team of supervillains, including the Green Goblin, Venom, and Kraven the Hunter.
