Review: The Bard’s Tale II – The Destiny Knight

Recently, I shared a review for the legendary CRPG The Bard’s Tale. In that review, I discussed how the game took the classic grid-based dungeon crawler formula and continued to evolve the genre by introducing colorful graphics and sound. Since that review was posted, I’ve spent the last month playing through the sequel and now, having finally completed the game,...

Requested Review: Waifu Uncovered

This is something I don’t do often. But today I’m going to provide a review at the request of a developer. Recently, I was contacted by One Hand Free Studios to post an honest review for their new game Waifu Uncovered. As a general rule, I tend to shy away from developer-requested reviews because I want to avoid any potential...

Review: Halo: Combat Evolved

This is a post that has been a long time coming. Back in October I reached the next phase of my backlog gaming reviews with a review of Luigi’s Mansion for the Nintendo Game Cube. That post marked my first step into the sixth-generation of video gaming. But instead of jumping right in to another game from the same era,...

Review: Shenmue III

How is everyone holding up? I hope all of my readers are fighting against this Covid-19 crisis by staying healthy and staying home. We are certainly living through an unprecedented event and during times like these it’s often hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. For me, I’ve been hiding out in my Hermit Grotto plowing...

Review: Doom 64

This is a review I didn’t think I’d ever get the chance to write. But thanks to the recent release of Doom Eternal, Id Software has re-released the most elusive entry in the Doom franchise; Doom 64. As many of you know, Doom is one of my favorite retro PC games. I spent countless hours of my youth playing Doom...

Review: The Bard’s Tale – Tales of the Unknown

It’s no secret that I’m a lifelong fan of RPGs (CRPGs in particular). And yes, when I say “lifelong”, I mean it. The very first PC game I ever played was Castle Adventure – an unusual ASCII-art game from the MS DOS era. Despite it’s simplicity, that game kindled a firestorm of obsession that still rages to this day. These days,...

Review: Tekken 3

Here we are! The final review in my Arcade Fighter mini-series. From this point forward, I’ll be reviewing games from the genre as a natural part of my backlog play-through. The game I’ll be reviewing today is none other than Tekken 3. I’ve already shared my thoughts on the first two games in the Tekken series and both titles scored...

Review: Mortal Kombat 4

We’re almost there! I’m winding down my Arcade Fighter mini-series this week. What a trip it’s been! I started this project back in June with a review of the very first Street Fighter game. From there, I’ve covered a number of other arcade fighters in detail. Included in that list have been titles from the Mortal Kombat series. So far,...

Review: Street Fighter III

To start, I want to apologize for my nearly month-long absence. As some of my dedicated readers might know (and more than a few pointed out), this site has recently suffered from a number of performance issues. So to ensure the best experience for my readers, I decided to put everything on hold and focus on identifying the root of...
