Orcs Must Die 2 is pretty much everything I wanted in Orcs Must Die. Namely, a game as good as Toy Soldiers: Cold War. To see all that stuff in motion reminds me of a carwash. But for orcs. And … Continue reading
Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time is the official North American debut of a game previously available only in Japan as Growlanser IV: Over Reloaded. That was ten years ago, and on the Playstation 2. In case you’re curious why the subtitle … Continue reading
Orcs Must Die got a lot of things right when it came to crushing, folding, spindling, and mutilating orcs. But it had stuff missing that kept it from being a great game. For instance, co-op multiplayer, a survival mode, and … Continue reading
In the summer “comedy” The Watch, a band of misfits takes on an alien invasion at a Costco. No matter who wins, we lose. Speaking of watches, this week’s 3×3 considers the best countdown timers in movies.

I’ve never played Small World, a fantasy boardgame published by Days of Wonder, the creators of gateway boardgame Ticket to Ride, the frustratingly frivolous Memoir ’44, and the oddly complex add-on boondoggle Battlelore. Days of Wonder does their thing pretty … Continue reading
I usually handle the editorial content around my house, but in some cases, I have to call in an expert like Murray. Although he’s orange and adorable, he’s also a professional mouse killer. This is his review of Game for … Continue reading
I’ve been playing Secret World steadily for three weeks, hoping Funcom and Electronic Arts will fix it “any day now”. Today, I’m done. Over the weekend, three things convinced me to throw in the towel. 1) A quest called The … Continue reading
