14 Nov 2020 5 minute read 0 comments bengy

  Costume Quest 2 is the second (surprise surprise....) installment of the Costume Quest game developed by the famed Double Fine Productions. Double Fine is best known for some pretty awesome story based games like Psychonauts, Broken Age and Mas...

Splinterlands Card Feature: Screaming Banshee

8 Nov 2020 3 minute read 2 comments bengy

  The Death splinter isn't really my favourite splinter to play due to the lack of a dedicated healer in my deck. The only self-healing monster in my deck is a little weak and underpowered compared to what I can field in the other splinters... and...

Thoughts about the newest Humble Drop and Historical Listing (up to October 2020)

4 Nov 2020 11 minute read 0 comments bengy

      Unsplash   The October Humble Bundle subscriber drop saw a nice big bag of games that I'm actually quite interested in and will likely claim the games for. Of course, being a legacy subscriber, I get to claim all the game keys! So, what I mean...

Spinterlands Card Feature: The Flesh Golem

19 Sep 2020 2 minute read 0 comments bengy

  The Earth Splinter is one of my favourite splinters... I have a nice selection of monsters to choose from, and I'm quite partial to the Flesh Golem tank from the Beta series of cards. A tank that has high health and self-healing... when combined w...

GOLD FOIL Mimosa Nightshade: SELL, BURN or HOLD?

13 Sep 2020 5 minute read 0 comments bengy

  Wow.... sometimes luck is really with you, and I got STUPID lucky this morning! I had some spare DEC from a couple of Splinterland card sales that had gone through overnight, and I generally use these proceeds to bolster up some of my cards. How...

Crusader Kings 3: FIRST IMPRESSIONS!

2 Sep 2020 3 minute read 0 comments bengy

  Paradox Interactive is most famed (as a developer, not publisher) for it's huge historical simulations (well, Stellaris is more like a future historical simulation!). These huge games make the Civilization series look and play like kiddie toys for...

Cinders: PC Game Review

27 Aug 2020 3 minute read 4 comments bengy

  Cinders is one of that strange breed of narrative heavy "games" known as Visual (Interactive) Novels. Unlike what passes for what is better known as games by the wider public (and the gaming community), the Visual Novel resembles it's namesake,...
