• … of the Month: Neverwinter Nights

    Before I start describing this game, I must address the people who have never heard of it. First off, get out from under yer damned rock. Secondly, it is not called 'Neverwinter' because it is never winter, it is a town named after Halueth Never and, before you ask, it isn't always night time. Now that that is out of the way, on with the show. Neverwinter Nights could possibly be the best PC game I have ever played... ever. It has a great storyline, memorable characters, tons of weapons, skills, spells, and anything else you could imagine. Yes, it does have a whore house where you can 'hire' a lady/guy friend for the night, but that is nothing compared to the rest of this spectacular game. NWN has completely customizable characters, allowing you to choose your race, (you can even make up your own race), class, abilities, size, hair color, tattoos, age, voice, deity, etc. If you aren't into making characters, there are premade ones ready for you. The multiplayer mode is quite fun to play if you have any friends, but if not, the single player mode alone makes this game worth getting, with tons of sidequests to complete and places to visit. Now, the coup de grace of Neverwinter Nights: The ability to create and play your very own mods. If you don't know, mods are different games you can make or play through NWN. You can never run out of things to do with the 900 some mods available to you, but even if you do, you can just make one for yourself with the easy to use toolset that is included with the game. Another nice feature of NWN is the Dungeon Master client, which allows you to play games with your friends as if you were playing an actual Dungeons and Dragons game, where the DM would have complete control over all NPCs, monsters, etc. The only downside of NWN, in my opinion, is the ending, which left a little something to be desired. I won't say that it is completely bad yet, though, as there might be an expansion pack for it sometime in the future with a better ending. Neverwinter Nights deserves an A for ahh, what a good game. Do yourself a favor and go out and buy it... along with a better computer so you can actually play it.

  • … of the Month: Icewind Dale

    Icewind Dale is a cold little place featured in many "Forgotten Realms" based novels, such as the "Icewind Dale Trilogy" by R.A. Salvatore, and now it stars in it's very own game! Icewind Dale uses the same engine (The Bioware Infinity Engine) used to create Baldur's Gate, a nd makes damned good use of it, too. The controls are quite easy to learn, even if you've never played Baldur's Gate before, and the storyline leaves nothing to be desired. You start off your adventure by creating a party of adventurers from 1 to 6 people. Your companions' races can be anything from Human to Half-Ogre, and their classes can be anything from an average fighter to a specialist mage. If you so choose, the multiplayer option allows you to join up with your friends or strangers to take on the 150 or so different monsters that roam the dale using a wide variety of weapons and spells. You explore many different areas, such as crypts full of the walking dead, volcanic caverns, and ice capped mountains. Icewind Dale is one of the largest games of its kind, and rest assured, it will leave you a lot less bored and a whole lot less pissed off than other certain multiplayer adventure/role playing games... Diablo II, for instance. If you liked Baldur's Gate... Hell, even if you hated it, or never even heard of it, check out Icewind Dale. If Drizzt Do'Urden lived there, it's gotta be good, right?

    … of the Month: Lufia

    The Lufia series. What words can describe the perfection achieved by three of the greatest games of all time. Oh, I know, "Perfection." Now, granted, perfection is a pretty strong word to use, but if any series deserves the title, it certainly is the Lufia series.

    … of the Month: Mr. Face Advance

    Background: A long long time ago, on an ancient, destroyed, website, there lived a happy little smiley face by the name of "Mr. Face." Now Mr. Face was a kind enough soul, never bothering anyone, and pretty much minding his own business. He lived a pretty uneventful life until one dreadful day when some bastard game players like you decided to shoot him... in the face! Assholes. Anyway, one shot to the head was not enough for the psychos, they shot over and over and over until the poor yellow smiley couldn't take it anymore and exploded... That was the last we saw of the lovable face for years to come.
