Review: Icewind Dale (Enhanced Edition)

Can you believe it has been six years since I reviewed the first three “Infinity Engine” games; Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, and Planescape Torment? It doesn’t seem that long ago. For the longest time, these titles were mostly forgotten by everyone except for CRPG enthusiasts. Then, earlier this year the third entry in the Baldur’s Gate saga was released…...

Review: Mafia (Definitive Edition)

For my readers who follow my backlog reviews, I need to apologize. As you may suspect, my attention has recently been distracted by a handful of new blockbuster games and this has derailed my progress when it comes to grinding out older titles. But fear not!

Review: Diablo IV

Rarely do I stop working my way through my backlog to play a new release. However, there are certain franchises that I simply cannot resist. Diablo is one of those.

This is one that I’ve never played before and one that was not originally on my list. As I said above, about a year ago I asked...

Review: Bloodstained – Curse of the Moon 2

By now, everyone has heard of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. I posted a review for the modern day Castlevania clone a little over a year ago. And despite a somewhat rough launch, the game was largely successful. Like many, I fully expected that sooner of later we’d receive news of a Bloodstained sequel. Much to my surprise, the developers...

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...
