Great Little War Game

Klikki here, reporting from Riga. Great Little War Game –  The name kind of says it all. It’s a shade of Great, certainly Little, really a number of unrelated battles more than a War, but definitely a Game! But for about $5 who’s nit-picking? Great Little War Game (GLWG) is a fun turned based strategy game from Rubicon. It’s easy to learn and not overly challenging. But the graphics are nice and the feel and humor of the game is a step above your average “made-for-mobile” game. Playing involves moving your cute little soldiers around the small little maps...

Pokémon Go and the Dead Body

Gamesters, I have not played the new Pokémon Go game yet but it looks hell ‘a cool! This new style of gaming uses GPS and satellite imagery to send you on a virtual treasure hunt. Today the stakes of this game got even higher when Shayla Wiggins of Riverton, Wyoming who is 19 was out playing the game. The game said that there was a hidden Pokémon in a town reservoir. She climbed the fence to get the prize but was rewarded with a dead body instead. The police are saying that it wasn’t foul play and most likely suicide....

Gun Control Solved

First a confession. I wrote this article so that I had an excuse to Google “skanky women with guns”. (and believe me girls, I chose the ‘classy’ one’s.) With that confession out of the way I may well have stumbled on America’s solution to it’s “gun control” debate. Like most solutions it is a compromise. This means that everybody is going to have to adapt their routine a bit. My 3-rule solution is simple: Everybody (18yrs or older) can buy any type of damn guns that they want. All guns (while not being used) have to locked up in...

Game Review: Fairway Solitaire

Card games are not my style I don’t like simple games like Solitaire in general, but sometimes your bosses insist. So I was requested by some of the over 40 editors to review this game. So I will stop working on my San Diego Comic Con costume and play a game I wont like for a few hours. Fairway Solitaire is made by Big Fish Games. That is a good sign because they are a creative company with a wide range of diverse titles. Fairway Solitaire is a lot like Spider Solitaire or UNO, cards can be played off the screen by paying...

Darkest Dungeon

Summary: In this Lovecraftian turn based dungeon crawler you train and equip adventurers with various skill sets. Combat is turn based and relatively easy to learn, if hard to master. Death is permanent and a battle can turn on a single event. The sanity of your characters is as important as their physical health.   Let me be clear, DD is not your friend. If you are a casual gamer looking for a “good-time” challenge then this game will grind down your spirit and spit in your face. The game can be seemingly unfair and forgiving.   If I...
