Skyborn

Skyborn is a recent release from Dancing Dragon games, currently available on BigFish. It utilizes the tried-and-true RPGMaker engine, but offers a lot of new twists on the old standby. While it isn't an Aveyond game, Skyborn ranks just below the all-time greatest RPGMaker series in writing and fun...

Aveyond 4 in development

I don't have any actual info on the development process. I just wanted to let fans know that the final (?) stage in this charming series is finally in development. SUPPOSEDLY, if you still have "The Darkthrop Prophecy" on your PC, you will retain all the items you already have. http://www....

Re: Game of Thrones RPG

Not sure how it could be getting terrible reviews since it hasn't even been released yet. Shipping dates right now are 5/15/2012. Maybe you're thinking of the Game of Thrones: Genesis which was released in 2011 and definitely did not impress anyone. It's an RTS game, not an RPG. Unfortunately Cynan...

Re: Game of Thrones RPG

I was kind of excited about this game, being an avid fan of the books. But it's getting terrible reviews.

Re: Portal 2

BJ you make me want to go back and persevere with the original. I'm afraid I gave up somewhere in the middle. Could never get through one level as hard as I tried. But maybe will try once again. :) Loved it up until that point. There is one room at about the midpoint of the game that is near-imposs...

Portal 2

I'm currently playing Portal 2 (having surprisingly enjoyed the first one, despite it being a FPS at heart) and this new iteration is even better than the original. The quirky sense of humor that made the original such a delight has been cranked up to 11 in the sequel. I'm probably less than a third...

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales--A Review

Now that I think about it, I think we had the subtitles turned off. Possibly.

Re: The Book of Unwritten Tales--A Review

The puzzling in BoUT is fairly easy, about on the level of Syberia . While we did hit a walkthrough a couple of times, in every instance it was because we hadn't looked at an item enough times or gone back to talk to someone about a change in circumstances. In this respect, it is unusual for me to b...

The Book of Unwritten Tales--A Review

Typically, I begin a review with a little background about the game, discussing its pedigree and resume. I'm going to eschew that here and start with this: BUY THIS GAME! The Book of Unwritten Tales (henceforth abbreviated BoUT) is a classic point-and-click fantasy adventure game, harkening back to ...

It still makes me laugh, and I've seen it dozens of times. It was from a series of shorts called "8-Bit Theater" by a group knows as the Dead Alewives or something like that. They put out several D&D/Final Fantasy bits.

Re: Microsoft Virtual PC 2007

Here's some additional info: I installed Win98SE on my virtual machine, as that allows me to play any old game that isn't DOS-only. (I have DosBox for those.) Perhaps the most important requisite is that you must NOT ONLY have an installation disk (or ISO of such a disk) for your "guest" O...
