Over my years of gaming, I’d have to say I’ve never really seen anything quite like Guild of Dungeoneering. Definitely a more casual style game, but definitely fun and interesting, to say the least! So let’s hop right into it--there’s a lot of different, interesting elements to this game. First, obviously, you’re going to be exploring dungeons. But, in the case of Guild of Dungeoneering, you create the dungeon that you explore. No, I didn’t stutter. YOU, the player, create the dungeon.

Bandits, and griffins, and witches! OH MY! These are a few foes you will encounter in this epic tale of mystery, adventure, and romance. Geralt of Rivia returns to find his missing protégé while ridding the towns of bandits and scary monsters along the way. WARNING! This review is that of my own opinion and should be noted any previous games involving the title Witcher have not been played; therefore, giving me an unbiased and open opinion.

This is an open-world role-playing game in which players assume the role of Geralt, a monster hunter in search of a missing woman. Players explore a war-ravaged world while completing quests and killing enemy soldiers and fantastical creatures (e.g., wraiths, harpies, rock beasts). Characters engage in melee-style combat using swords and other bladed weapons, as well as magical attacks (e.g., blasts of fire, stun spells); combat is highlighted by screams of pain and impact sounds. Large blood-splatter effects occur when enemies are slashed, with some attacks resulting in decapitation or dismemberment. Some cutscenes depict slow-motion decapitations and other gore: an autopsy of a torture victim, rooms with several corpses (e.g., hanging from the ceiling, covered in blood on a bed, naked in a tub). During the course of the game, the central character can engage in sexual activity with prostitutes and female companions. These brief sequences depict females' breasts and buttocks—sexual moaning sounds can be heard, though the camera cuts away from explicit sexual acts. The game includes a side quest in which Geralt engages in a drinking game; characters are depicted drunk and/or passed out. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “c*nt” can be heard in the dialogue. Tags:

After nearly dying in the last episode, Bigby is in pretty rough shape as Episode 4, In Sheep’s Clothing, begins. His arm is set by a doctor and silver bullets are dug out of him as Snow frantically watches on. Having your arm set--with the bone sticking out--is not something that I found easy to watch. Whats worse is you are warned that if Bigby continues to act in an aggressive manner, he may just end up killing himself.

The Walking Dead Season 2 continues and our characters find themselves at the mercy of a madman who has them imprisoned and forced to work to “earn their keep.” Like so many times before this season, Clementine finds herself in the middle of all of the action as the group relies on her to help them. Episode 3, In Harm’s Way, features a fairly dark storyline with many gruesome scenes. This time there is also no avoiding death as the body count really begins to rise.

Tex Murphy is quite a guy. We last saw him getting shot with his girlfriend back in 1998. Back then, adventure games were commonplace and so was Full Motion Video, or FMV for short. Sadly, we haven’t been able to discover what really happened to Tex… That is until now! Tex is back with a successful Kickstarter game, published by Atlus for the PC.

Episode 3 of The Wolf Among Us begins right where Episode 2 left off. I don’t want to spoil anything but Bigby is not very happy and is rushing to try and get the killer, from the first two games, before they gets away. As this is a story in the middle of the planned storyline, it wouldn’t make much sense if things went well. You won’t realize until the very end just how bad things are going for Bigby.
