Lovely game

artisall | June 7, 2014 | Review of The Banner Saga: Deluxe

This game was refreshing. I wasn't sure what I was expecting when I booted it up, but I was pleasantly surprised to be surrounded in a rich world, full of color and life. The art style is right up my alley and the music sucks you right into the story. The writing is absolutely charming and anyone who likes this period in history and enjoys story driven well executed games, would be please by this title.

It's different than what we're used to, but definitely a welcomed change.

A game that stole 500 hours of my life

artisall | June 7, 2014 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim® Legendary Edition

And I don't regret a single minute of it. its been years since this title was released and I still come back every once and awhile to go spelunking in some cave or chase down some Daedra. With more and more mods releasing regularly, there are times I feel like it's a different game entirely. If you enjoy adventure, exploring and picking up everything (I think I have 400 tomatoes in Breezehome), then this is the title for you. No, Skyrim isn't perfect, no game is. I wish that the NPC reacted more to the world around them that I was supposedly 'changing', and the combat could definitely feel better, like I was actually hitting something, because as cool as I feel charging out into the wilderness, I don't feel very dangerous when I can't feel the power behind my swings or the impact from my fireballs.

All and all, a great game for those who want to loose hours exploring, looting and surrounding yourselves with companions who bug the ever loving crap out of you.
