Kingdom Come Deliverance

In college, I minored in Medieval Studies. This is not a common area of coursework in many colleges, but Western Michigan University has an entire department devoted to ye olde ages of yore. The program is fairly well-known, and they host a medieval congress every year for all the academic nerds of the world to…

Game Review -King’s Quest: Rubble Without a Cause

King’s Quest Chapter 1: A Knight to Remember stands out for me as one of the best gaming experiences of 2015. I’d never played the Sierra King’s Quest games, which had come out not long after I was born; my days of PC gaming didn’t start for another twenty years or so. Coming to The…

Game Review – Game of Thrones

The grand finale of Telltale’s Game of Thrones was released last week, and after a few nights of thorough play, I saw those credits roll. While I enjoyed Telltale’s efforts to replicate what HBO’s Game of Thrones does, it doesn’t quite live up to the mark, and there’s no question that the books do it…
