Review: Warlords photo
Review: Warlords
by Ian Bonds

In the '80s, if you had three friends over who all wanted to play Atari with you, there was really only one game you would reach for.

Warlords was the go-to game for multiplayer combat, and it was also the source for many frustrated arm punches and the first cases of thrown paddle controllers among buddies who lost the round. And while it has already received a 3D update (on Xbox Live Arcade in 2008), Atari is taking yet another crack at rehashing this classic title.

Have they found the right balance between old-school gameplay and new-school play mechanics?

Complete GOG survey and get Realms of Arkania for free photo
Complete GOG survey and get Realms of Arkania for free
by Joshua Derocher

GOG.com is doing their annual customer survey, and if you want to take part in it, you can get a free copy of Realms of Arkania 1+2. That's actually two games, so it's worth five minutes of your time. They are also guaranteeing lifelong happiness if you complete the survey, which might not be completely true. It certainly won't make your life worse, anyway.

Realms of Arkania is a classic role-playing game that I never got around to playing. I remember it being a thing back when I had an Amiga, but this was before I played role-playing games. Now I am intrigued by it and I want to check it out. The comments on GOG about the game make it seem complicated and incredibly hardcore. Just my kind of game. And I can get it for free!
