Thanks, I'm interested in anything games related and I struggle to keep my mind solely on one thing, so I find it good to spread things around a little!

Review - Arkham Horror Third Edition

Calvin Wright was a very disturbed man. The dagger he held in his hand dripped thick, red liquid, slowly at his feet. His eyes bulged with all the horrors he had witnessed; his breath stuck in his throat.

The beast that had appeared before him had come to claim its price, the price Calvin had been happy to ignore not so long ago. The thing reached out what, in only the loosest terms, can only be described as a hand.

“It is time. My part in this pact is complete. Now it is up to you to pay the price – step into my world.” With that, the beast opened its maw and devoured the desperate soul – Calvin’s reckoning had arrived!

Here's my review of Arkham Horror!

Review - Tiny Epic Galaxies... Solo

It’s definitely tiny; it’s definitely got galaxies; but is it epic? I take a look at the solo version of the game to see if it really lives up to its title.
