Anno 2205 – smoking new future game trailerage.

Here’s the next iteration of the Anno strategy game franchise, set even more in the future and entitled not unreasonably, Anno 2205. The original scifi strategy game was quite good, if a little fiddly (and almost impossible to beat at even the middle stages of the game – where’s my cheats?).

The Art Of Rocksteady’s Batman by Daniel Wallace (book review).

Although I’ve known of the recent Arkham Batman computer games, I’ve only recently picked up the ‘Arkham Origins’, which goes beyond the remit of this book. However, seeing ‘Asylum’, ‘City’ and ‘Knight’ here, in ‘The Art Of Rocksteady’s Batman’ by Daniel Wallace, I can see the roots of the artwork used there. When Rocksteady were […]

City Under The Sand (The Abyssal Plague Prelude book 3) by Jeff Mariotte (book review).

http://www.Dungeons&Dragons.com‘City Under The Sand’ takes place in the Dark Sun setting, an interesting anomaly among the various ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ worlds. It’s a ‘dying world’ sort of place. Its failing ecology and lack of resources attributed to the use of magic as, in the Dark Sun setting, arcane magic draws its power from defiling the […]

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty by Raymond Benson

The blurb on the front cover announces that ‘Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons Of Liberty’ is ‘The official novel of the thrilling Konami video game created by Hideo Kojima!’ So no change there then, as that’s what it said on the first book, ‘Metal Gear Solid’. In many ways it’s almost identical to the first […]

Dungeons and Dragons . . . tools of the Devil?

Ah, Dungeons and Dragons, gateway drug for the demon-worshipping hordes of the dark one. Yes, Pastor Win Worley has been preaching against the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game and the occult like it’s, err, 1983 again. Forget D&D. Forget AD&D. Let’s blame that child of darkness J.R.R Tolkien for this dark fantasy mess. Or was it J. R. Hartley? […]
