In keeping Greywolfe's theme of games played in childhood that surprise us now, I decided to revisit Namco's 1992 Super Nintendo title, Wings 2: Aces High. By the way this was sold in Europe as Blazing Skies, in case it looks familiar but the name doesn't quite fit for you. I was twelve years old…Read more You Sheep!
Hearthstone's solo adventures are always a pleasant change of pace. Instead of beating up on other people, we're beating up on imaginary bosses. These bosses are generally thematically linked through some crumbs of story that get doled out as each wing of the adventure unlocks. In the case of League of Explorers, the story's wrapped…Read more You Sheep!
I've been playing video games for a very, very long time at this point. The first couple of times I stood in front of anything that resembled a game was back in 1979 or 1980. I don't recall which one it was now - might have been Asteroids. Might have been Space Invaders. All I…Read more You Sheep!

Hard West is a turn based squad tactical strategy game that's been compared to titles like X-COM Enemy Uknown and Jagged Alliance. Stay with me for my thoughts, and as always click an image to see it full size. Upon firing this game up for the first time and seeing the title screen and menus…Read more You Sheep!
Your eyes are fine, that is in fact what the title says and yes I mean it. Don’t get me wrong, my heart sank when I heard the news about The Rift's price the other week. However, after some time reflecting on the product we’re getting and what it is both used for and stands for, I started to think differently.
I knew I didn't like Order of the Phoenix very much when Harry turned into a whiny, insufferable guy who felt sorry for himself for the first hundred pages of that book. It felt needless. On the one hand, there was a reason for it [the events from Goblet of Fire lead to Harry's chrysalis…Read more You Sheep!
