I’ve just finished writing a post about one Kickstarter campaign and even while the virtual blog ink is still drying I got told of another one. This time it is for a new RPG game called Dungeon of Elements, developed by Frogdice Games. Dungeon of Elements looks to be the answer to the question “What do you get if you cross Tetris with a fantasy RPG. The blocks that fall seem to be your method of attacking the monsters within the Tetris grid. Read more

There could be many reasons why you like Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, the beautiful graphics the in-depth stories, the non-linear gameplay, the near infinite ways that you can create and evolve your character, the list is long. Don’t get me wrong all those things are good, and you wouldn’t have a game without them, but to me the best bit about Skyrim, is that due to a very active modding community the world is constantly changing. If there’s something you don’t like about Skyrim and want to change it, then you can by way of the Skyrim Workshop.
Mods range from slight tweaks to the inclusion of new factions, quests, dungeons, even whole cities. As they say, the only limit is the imagination of the modding community. If you haven’t added any mods to your game of Skyrim yet then you really are missing out on some nice extra content.
I’ve gone through the list of mods that I use in my Skyrim, and picked out ten of them that I would never start a game without. Now, before we get to the list of mods, it is worth making it clear that this is in no way an exhaustive list. It couldn’t be further from one, there are now thousands upon thousands of mods in the workshop.
Crafting is the bit of each new MMO that I am screaming for somebody to get right. In most cases crafting boils down to little more than pointlessly grinding materials to make endless amounts of the same item that you can do little else with other than sell to a vendor for a nominal amount of money.
I’ve recently been playing Guild Wars 2 and that crafting system seems a little different. Don’t get me wrong, you still have to grind for your materials as with all the other MMO crafting systems and there is still that element of repetition in there, but among all that there a few differences which, for me lift their system out of the crafting dirge.

One of the nicest side effects of me writing this blog is that I sometimes get e-mails quite out of the blue telling me about new games, sometimes even asking me to try them for free. One of these emails came through a couple of days ago from the guys and gals behind a new mouse fighting RPG game called Tunnel Tail.
According to the email, I received…
“Tunnel Tail takes the player underground where mouse tribes struggle with the dark forces of the Lumini who seek to destroy both the mouse and human worlds. The player is the last hope the mice have to finally win their freedom.”
So all of that plus the added incentive of being able to download the entire game for free, without having to put up with ads. So ‘Sure, why not’ I thought as I popped over to the App store and downloaded it. Read more
You may remember that a couple of weeks ago I let you in on a few details about the pet system in Arcane Legends. You can read about it here. Well those nice chaps and chapettes at Spacetime Studios have now sorted out a nice cinematic trailer for us as well. Nice people.
The trailer shows the three classes in Arcane Legends, Warrior, Sorcerer and Rogue taking on and defeating a bandit who has, for reasons only known to himself captured a young woman and held her in an overhead cage.
I’ve started a new character on Skyrim. My khajjit thief-archer was a lot of fun to play but I needed to experience a more direct approach to the combat in Skyrim for my next character. Initially, I had trouble deciding on whether I should play an Orc warrior, clad in heavy armour or an uber-mage High elf. Then it hit me, why not do both (nearly)… a battlemage… I should make a battlemage.
Now for those not familiar with the term, a battlemage is a character that is effective in melee combat and magic, and even better they can wear heavy armour. Many other games don’t make this way of playing easy for you. You can be trapped in one of several set play styles, mage, archer, and warrior for example, but Skyrim’s levelling system allows you to mix and match the skills needed to create a battlemage.

There have been rumours of an Elder Scrolls MMO flying around for some time now. Rumours that have been met with equal amounts of cynicism and curiosity. Well, these rumours have now been confirmed. The Elder Scrolls Online is being developed by Zenimax Online Studios and is to be released in 2013 sometime, though I suspect this to be towards the end of 2013.
The Elder Scrolls Online is set a millennium before the events of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, a time when the evil Daedric Prince Molag Bal tries to suck all of Tamriel into some demonic world.
Skyrim has captured my attention once more and so too has the large amount of Skyrim queries bringing all you lovely people to my little old blog.
Well I hate to see people leaving unfulfilled, so I have answered another of the ten most popular queries that wave wiggled their way to me.
I was asked to let you all know that Blue Mammoth have released a browser-based MMO called Dungeon Blitz. This post here, in fact, but it would be rather amiss of me if I didn’t play it and let you know what I think about it, which is exactly what I did. My gaming time is becoming more scarce and much more precious, so is it good enough to make me want to find some time for it?
Blue Mammoth has just released a new MMO called Dungeon Blitz. After working on larger games such as Star Trek Online and Champions Online, the chaps from Blue Mammoth set their sights on their own project. Dungeon Blitz is a side-scrolling MMO that relies on a simple point and click interface. The game can be played solo, but they claim the game is much for fun when you group.
I will be reviewing this game properly once I’ve had a good go at it, but in the mean time please read the release from Blue Mammoth below, watch the Dungeon Blitz trailer or click the links to go straight to their site and play it.
