What I reckon: Rimworld

Great pioneers like Christopher Columbus and Elon Musk really don’t get enough credit for what they do. As it transpires, colonizing isn’t as much of a walk in the park as you’d think. There is a lot of walking involved, but it’s usually hauling stuff somewhere, chasing down tonight’s dinner or often just plain fleeing […]

What I reckon: Reigns

  This seemingly simple casual game is to strategy what Tinder is to dating. On the surface, it’s entirely binary and shallow. Trying to balance several factors and rule your kingdom as long as you can is as easy as swiping left or right. It’s frustrating, satisfying, confusing, entertaining and most importantly; an easy way […]

Original article publish on http://www.oldgrizzledgamers.com Stonehearth caught my eye when it first launched on Kickstarter five years ago. It caught my eye again last week, when Radiant Entertainment finally released their charming city-builder and a five year old switch flicked in my head.

Fair enough. Did that dream scenario also include daily visits from three strange adults who set you chores, such as building fences or catching […]

Old Soldier

If you haven’t watched the cinematic I’m about to discuss, then click here.   What does it all mean? In the wake of one of the most devastating and controversial events in the game’s 14 year history, this cinematic was exactly what the gaming community needed.

Hearthstone by the beach

It’s rare for me to enjoy so much something at which I am so dreadful As my friends and Twitter associates may know, I am on vacation in Turkey at the moment. So far I’ve spent 8 days here, 2300 miles from the comfort of my own home, my girlfriend, and my PC. Granted, it’s […]

Games Industry: Battle Royale

  It’s happening again. Just like when, many years ago, Call of Duty released a zombie game mode. Everybody cottoned on that this was an inherently brilliant idea that worked well in the game and as such, must immediately be implemented into every game ever made from then on. The format is simple, really. Zombies […]
