And I should stress that you actually DRAW the map, using your stylus. It's probably the closest to the old days of mapping dungeons with graph paper that you are ever likely to find.

I have a hunch that these are not units, but are the dwarven equivalents of the first aid tent, catapult, and ballista.

I am very critical about this game, but yet I've been playing it a lot more than most of my other games, even ones that I think were much better thought out. Ultimately there is just something about…

I liked Disgaea alot, but Phantom Brave just didn't do it for me. It didn't have the humor of their original game, and while some of the mechanics were original, they didn't really excite me that…

I'm not sure if it's "the best", but I really enjoyed the combat system in Lord of Xulima. I loved how they managed to make a sword really different from a hammer or an axe. And I remember some…

The DMG contains several sets of optional rules to create more realistic healing if your so inclined. At the end of the day though hit point loss has always been abstract. Your character never breaks…

Fifth edition should be a good edition to make a D&D game from. It's probably the least controversial of all the editions, which isn't to say that everyone loves it, but it received much less hate…

Personally I enjoyed the review, especially since this a game I was very curious about. I don't think that the fact that the game was made in Korea should have any relevence to whether it is reviewed…

I think there are aspects of modern games that are dumbed down, and aspects which are much more complex. It really depends on what area you are talking about. The idea of having to read the manual in…

Playing hard right from the start can be a little tricky, although it is quite doable with a little strategy and caution. If you mindlessly click you will probably die. After you find a few drops…

You definitely don't need to gear up before playing on higher difficulties in the campaign. If you play the whole thing on normal there will definitely be no challenge, it's the equivelent to playing…

I hated the killer stacks in Civ 4, but then managing giant armies could be a pain in Civ 5, and the AI could not handle it. In sounds like Civ 6 is trying for some degree of middle ground at least,…

I'm going to guess that the main plot will involve a battle against some kind of even darker evil force that is trying to destroy/undermine the empire. That way both good and evil characters will…

I think it's fair to say that you don't have to play the 100+ hours that would be required to finish DD to write a review. On the other hand, 5 hours of playtime would be way too little, there are…

I'm kind of surprised that they would change it into an action game if their goal was to win fans back to the series. This is definitely the biggest departure that I've seen from previous games. It…

Backstabbing is definitely easier. I was horrible at in previous DS games, but now even my heavily armored herald wielding a battleaxe regularly gets backstabs off.

I don't think I've ever…

It's a bad game, but it's really not grindy. There aren't even any random encounters for most of the game. The reason most people don't like it is either because of the combat where you can't control…

Yeah the issue is not that the game is unplayable with K&M. I played through both games without a controller, although you did lose some functionality in DS2, but it was not a huge deal. The issue is…

The "story" was a big part of what made the game for me, but it's not like it's a gripping plot full of twists and turns or anything like that. It's just that it's a fairly unique setting where your…
