I wish someone would air the entire Black Adder series; it's been so long since I've seen any of the episodes. Sure, I could buy the DVD box set, but that's a lot of money, money I need to buy the Farscape box sets.

I believe it was a failure. I had huge hopes for the game, but as the development cycle moved ahead, it became clear that while the concept was good, the design was going to be awful. And the demo only confirmed this. So I never bought the game, and now I see it everywhere used or already in the bar...

Arcanum

I picked up a copy of Arcanum while braving the seething morass that was a Boxing Day mall. After reading the manual and loading up the game only to realise that the manual really provided little useful information, I have some questions. Mainly about character development. I find games that advocat...

Lionheart was never meant to be anything significant for BIS, but it's unfortunately the last title associated with them. When Lionheart was announced, the core BIS people were hard at work on Baldur's Gate III (Jefferson), which was to be The Big Title. If anything, Lionheart was an ill omen of thi...

Thanks much, Ewen. It's good to be here.

Icewind Dale 2 should have had a story worthy of the improved gameplay. Icewind Dale 1 had a great story and was a good length, but was hampered by the old standard IE AD&D interface, whereas IWD2 had fantastic gameplay but a short and overall lacking story.
