Dark Souls III Gets Best RPG Award at Gamescom

Listen, listen, anyone who knows me knows I’m absolutely obsessed with all things Dark Souls, Demon Souls, and Bloodborne. These games are intense and I adore seeing how well received they are, proof that gamers don’t need to have their hands held through missions sometimes we want the gnitty gritty dark and games that make us wish we stayed home… Read More »

My Time With Daggerdale

As most of you are probably aware, Tuesday saw the release of Dungeons & Dragons Daggerdale for the Xbox 360′s Xbox Live Arcade and the PC.  In case you are unfamiliar, Daggerdale is a video game that is based on the Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition rules which you can either play alone or with up to three friends via Xbox Live.  Once…

NightSky Review

Once in a while you have a need for a game to entertain you for an hour or two. If I’m travelling and I have few hours extra time, I am usually too tired to focus on heavier games be it strategy or rpgs. I don’t know about you, but in my opinion, casual games

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes Review (PS3)

Here is another review about a game I’ve really enjoyed recently. Hours well spent compelled me also write few words about the game. Clash of Heroes tells the story of five heroes from five different areas of the same world, all coming together to fight the same overreaching demonic malevolent force. In short: the game

Magicka Review

It has been a good while since I last had the opportunity to review a game. Although Endless Bag of Games has mainly focused game reviews on console games, that doesn’t mean that it is going to stay that way: especially now that I have good new chair to rest my buttocks while enjoying PC

Mount & Blade: Fire and Sword Preview

I just had the chance to go up a few levels in the newest addition to the Mount & Blade franchise: Fire and Sword.  It was exactly what I was expecting and that’s a damned good thing! It works much like the original Mount & Blade games but with the addition of firearms.  This has been done…

PAX East in review – my side of the table

PAX East has come and gone.  Throughout the entire convention we only managed to get out one extremely small podcast .  Why?  Because we were having too damned much fun, that’s why!  Here’s our first in a series of PAX East related posts. Today I’m going to highlight my experiences at PAX East, touch on the games we played, the people…

PAX East!

That’s right folks, this coming Saturday, lost among the 60,000 other folks there, will be three representatives from Troll in the Corner! PAX East is nearly here, and we’re going to be there! Which means if you’re there, we’ll be there as well and since two of us live here, it’s here in our backyard! There! Myself, Tracy and Scott will all be present. Digitally …

Tales From Space: About a Blob Review

I like simple games. I like them because I don’t always have time to play about an hour or two, but enough still to play a little. These short moments require a special genre of games. Those kind of games you can just grab and play a while. Tales from Space: About a Blob is

Fallout: Nuka Break

Thought not technically the same sort of role playing game we tend to deal with here on Troll ITC, the Fallout series games are very near and dear to my heart.  Last night, while browsing, the web I stumbled on this awesome example of a fan film set in the Fallout universe and had to share it with the world. This clever and hilarious…

Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves Short Review

I know they released Little Big Planet 2 (review coming soon), but what I’ve learned so far, Little Big Planet 2 doesn’t offer (yet) any action with the Playstation Move controller. However, Media Molecule has put together Sackboy’s Prehistoric Moves which demonstrates the potential Move controller could have with the game. I tried this co-op

Play(er) Review: Dragon Age RPG

I have a tendency to spend a lot of time “behind the screen”.  I get the new games, I spend far too much of my free time reading them, and I come up with stories to play and run at the game table.  In the reviews I’ve done for this site, I have been opposite parties of intrepid adventurers, time travelers, and…

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II Review

It is not better yet it is not worse than its predecessor. It just provides decent enough experience for those who enjoyed the first one. That is Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II in a nutshell. Once again you find yourself in the boots of Starkiller, Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, even when the ending in

Games done right: Lessons from Force Unleashed

For starters, let me clarify that this blog post is about the original Force Unleashed, not the newly-released sequel. If it seems weird that I’m talking about a game that has been on the market for two years, you must be new to the blog. I never played Guitar Hero in any incarnation until about nine months ago . I’m still occasionally working on unlocking everything in the 2006 …

Rifts Lawsuit Settlement? Call Your Shot.

Good afternoon, dear Internet. It appears that it may be a great day for fans of Rifts, but we don’t yet know any details. It was reported today on the amazing livingdice.com that the Trion Worlds versus Palladium Books legal battle may have finally come to a close. If you’re just joining us and don’t want to go through the whole story as I lay it out…

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 Review

I am a big fan of Naruto anime, but I know many who would beat crap out me because of that. Nevertheless I do believe that even if you don’t like the series, you can still enjoy a lot from Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2. The game is absolutely beautiful and the fighting system is

Gaming to save the world

Jane McGonigal’s TED Talk about how online gaming can benefit the world. While the idea is a bit out there, it’s definitely interesting and many of the elements she talks about can also be applied to tabletop roleplaying games.

Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot DLC Review

The Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot DLC for Borderlands has been released a while ago, but since the fourth DLC is already in development, I decided to make a review for each DLC Borderlands already has. In short: Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot consist of three small 5 round tournaments and three large 20 round tournaments. Smaller
