“Helm” A High Fantasy Steampunk Webcomic – A Review

Posted on Posted in Books, Fantasy Comic

Old school epic fantasies about underdogs rising up have been my go to since The Wheel Of Time started spinning. Helm is a high fantasy series that centers on an awkward college dropout whose every action and decision will shape the future of the world he lives in. And what a beautiful world at that.

“Don’t Starve” Or Die A Lot Video Game Review

Posted on Posted in Mobile Games, PC Games, Video Games

Dying is just par for the course in Don’t Starve, where there isn’t any hand-holding, tutorials, or making things easy.

I still have me a hankering for games I first played  20+ years ago. And no one scratches that itch for me as well as Good Old Games. Well, Abandonia helps too but you often need an emulator. Anyway, since I’ve been retro gaming quite a bit lately, it seemed only natural that I judge how well some of my childhood favourites from the 90’s have held up. So here we are, my list of the 7 […]
