Larian’s Divinity: Original Sin is billed as an epic RPG with tactical turn-based combat, support for co-op play, a classless character system and rich crafting. That’s the vision anyway, and the game has gone from a successful Kickstarter campaign that was funded just last April to arriving on Steam as […]

The Level-5/Studio Ghibli collaboration Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, has been out for a week as of today. It’s been my main gaming focus since it arrived last Tuesday evening and I thought it was time to share some thoughts. I’ll try to avoid any major spoilers […]

Tonight’s plans got somewhat derailed by a bunch of excitement in the G+ community, and then I had to d/l a new patch for BG:EE, so I didn’t start playing until nearly 11. Traellan’s new friends want him to travel to some gods-forsaken place to investigate the metal shortage but […]

Beamdog sent over a patch to the PC version of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition tonight. Unfortunately the client doesn’t give you much info, but over in the forums are some patch notes. Looks like it’s almost all bug fixes, but while I was there I noticed a warning: Intel Integrated […]

I have a confession to make. I never played much of Baldur’s Gate when it came because I, uh, didn’t like it very much. ~ducks the incoming volley of rotten vegetables~ Honestly it was so long ago that I don’t even remember why I didn’t like it. I just know […]

One of the more charged terms in the lexicon of gamers is GRINDING. MMO players almost universally hate grinding, though there’s a certain breed of single-player RPG gamer that enjoys it. But what exactly IS grinding? I think it means different things to different people and I think that leads […]

I’m a supporter of inXile Entertainment’s Kickstarter fund to get Wasteland 2 made. I remember Interplay when Brian Fargo was running the show. I remember playing games like The Bard’s Tale and Stonekeep and yes, Wasteland. I contributed $75 — more than I’d pay for a finished game — because […]

Atlus sent out a marketing email announcing new price cuts on a bunch of their PSP games. These are all on PSN and (I’m taking Atlus’s word on this part) they’re all Vita-compatible. Title Reduced Price  Old Price Persona $19.99 $39.99 Persona 2:Innocent Sin $29.99 $39.99 Persona 3 Portable $19.99 […]

If you know me at all, you probably don’t even remotely think of me as a role-player. I never sat around a table playing D&D, and in MMOs I’m pretty quiet as a general rule. I tend to keep to my own company, in games and in ‘real life’ as […]
