Mortals, Gods, And The Inky Blackness Of Space
HIGH Exciting storyline and likable protagonists. Great plot twists!
LOW The last hour gets a bit grindy.
WTF Was behind the one door in the entire game that I couldn’t open???
Sinsational HIGH Fighting on an arid oilfield. What could go wrong? LOW Peepers is right here, lady. Advance that sidequest already. WTF Accidentally eating someone’s leg that was in my backpack for… perfectly legitimate reasons. It’s fantastic that the Divinity series has finally achieved the recognition it’s always deserved. […]
I’ve been watching Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden for a few months now and always had a passing interest in it, but had yet to get my hands on it. This post-human apocalyptic turn-based strategy game has anthropomorphic characters and an interesting setting, but it wasn’t until actually playing that I realized my initial thoughts about it were slightly wrong.
Since I didn’t own a PC at the time, I completely missed out on the original Bard’s Tale entries. The last mainline entry hit the market in 1988 — that’s thirty years ago. That’s a hell of a long time for a franchise to lay dormant, but InXile have become known for resurrecting classic games and imbuing them with just enough of a modern twist. Now, following their successful Kickstarter campaign in 2015, that’s exactly what they’re aiming for with The Bard’s Tale IV: Barrows Deep.
