Review

Alcohol consumption has gone *down*? Talk about unintended consequences.
Making an accurate simulation of a democracy in action is damned hard to do -- just ask a political pollster. So when you're looking at any video game political sim, the first question to ask yourself is:...

Review: Fallen Lords

White enemies are high priority targets, mostly because of their offensive hairstyles.
Groundling Games are about as indie as it gets: they advertise that they met in college playing D&D, an endearing background that any nerd can respect.

The ultimate MacGyvering: Mac in the game has a copy of the game.
MacGyver makes for a solid role-model. I say this as someone who a) has never watched an episode of the series, or even a clip of the undoubtedly explosion-filled introduction, b) probably never...

Elementary, my dear W-wait a minute, not another ?#!!@ tile rotation!
Many years ago, prior to having played Twilight Struggle, Mr. Jack was the greatest 2-player game I’d ever played. It had everything: hidden roles, deduction, different character powers and a 30-minute play time.

Monster mash.
The most over-the-top thing about Over the Top Tower Defense is the unwieldy abbreviation it's swinging around as its name. Yes, there are steampunk crustaceans and floating eyeballs here, true enough, and an overzealous inter-dimensional military contractor putting mercenaries to work in the field...

“I’m the best at what I do. So… you guys need any help smashing these barrels?"
Do you remember “Days of Future Past”? The classic X-Men comic book arc in which everyone’s favorite mutants ran slowly from left to right as they destroyed random warehouse supplies?...

Review: Dream Quest

23 May 2014 0
  • iOS

Dream Quest is the opposite of Warhammer Quest. Owen wrote of Warhammer Quest, "There’s little in this game that you haven’t seen elsewhere, but you’ve rarely seen that stuff assembled into such an elegant, sophisticated package." Dream Quest takes some of gaming's hottest and most novel elements and joins them...
