Legend of Grimrock 2 - A lever

The first Legend of Grimrock was awesome. I’ve seen a lot of people say it’s too easy to cheese it by running circles around the enemies. Those people missed the point and didn’t realize that’s how the game was made intentionally. They wanted a Might and Magic clone. Legend of Grimrock is an Eye of the Beholder type of game. It’s a different genre. Those people are wrong.

Instead of dragging this out, talking about how this element of the game is better or worse, let’s just skip right to the chase. I’ll play for about 15 minutes and describe everything that happened.

Heroes of Might and Magic - The Victory Screen

I’ll be honest. I’ve kind off been cheating lately, playing several different games but not really sticking through the end of any of them. Sure, The Darkest Dungeon is early access so I guess it’s OK I’m not going through that one all the way, but i started the Witcher 2 months ago and left it about half-way through. I also have a game of Crusader Kings II running, with a draft for a posting only half-written. This one, I really wanted to give an hones try, though. It’s Might and Magic, after all.

Ipega 9023

I bought an iPega 9023. There’s plenty of fish in the sea when it comes to bluetooth gamepad attachments for mobile devices, but to my knowledge, this is the only one out there that is able to attach itself to an 8″ tablet or a tabled-sized (7″ or more) device in general. Since I haven’t been playing anything specific lately, I’d like to instead share my experience and  possibly provide some tips on how to use this device. If it matters, the tablet I’m using it on is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 (SM-T315).Continue reading

Kingdom Rush : Frontiers - 01 Main Menu

A few months ago, I played through the campaign of the original Kingdom Rush on my tablet. It went by relatively quick, so instead of writing a single opinion post about it, I wanted to write a series of guides on how to get three stars on at least some of the levels. As apparent by the lack of such posts on this blog, that turned out to be a great idea.

Sarcasm aside, Kingdom Rush was a fun game, so I bought Kingdom Rush: Frontiers as well and played through it recently. I also got much further in the starts department, but I still don’t have a guide ready. What I do have is a bit of an overview of the game and I really want to write this down before I start with the third game in the series – Kingdom Rush: Origins.Continue reading

Final Fantasy XIII - Snow

Final Fantasy is one of the few defining game franchises for me as a gamer. As a kid, I didn’t look far past the usual platformers, fighting or racing games, but at one point after getting the PlayStation, I got talked into buying Final Fantasy VII. Since then, I’ve played through most of the series and enjoyed each and every game I tried. This is a single post instead of a series, but I have now completed Final Fantasy XIII as well. Did I enjoy it? Sort of, maybe, but I’m not really sure.Continue reading

Sproggiwood - New enemies

The purists might jump on the title like a pack of hyenas, so I’ll put a disclaimer right here and now – some might not consider Sproggiwood a roguelike. I do, but some might not. Most will consider it a fun game to play, though.I know I do, so I’ll do my usual “what is this game about” thing. I was going to do it earlier, before the game was released, but I couldn’t find the time, so let’s do it now that it’s out.Continue reading
