New Baldur’s Gate game teased by Beamdog

I can still vividly remember the day I picked up Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn in a thrift store. My dad and I always searched the books, CDs, and computer games for hidden gems. This time he had found one, and handed me the taped up case. I looked over the art on the more »

I love being horrible at Veigues Tactical Gladiator

You probably have no idea what the hell Veigues Tactical Gladiator is. If you do, congratulations! You’re one of the twelve people that had a TurboGrafix 16.

You could argue about the Wii U’s success of lack thereof until you’re rolling on the ground, gasping for air, but you can’t argue how stacked the console’s library became in 2014.

Still, it’s a solid enough console, and there is plenty of fun to more »

I say unfortunately because the wasn’t really the full, robust version that the PS3 and the Xbox 360 got. There was a lot of content I more »
