Portal

This was a triumph and the cake is a lie. And yes, I did indeed play Portal three and a half years after it was released.

Dungeons & Dragons: Dragonshard

I remember there being a tiny amount of disappointment for me when Dungeons & Dragons: Dragonshard was revelead to be a real-time strategy game instead of another D&D RPG. And I totally missed the release of the game, as I was doing my military service in 2005.

And I guess in 2006 Dragonshard was already buried as a failure. At least I never saw it even mentioned anywhere until recently in one of TotalBiscuit's This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things videos on YouTube.

Dungeon Siege II: Broken World

I have played Dungeon Siege II and its expansion through twice already but something made me start a new game once again. This time I decided to make a weapon and a shield using Fist of Stone (melee and nature mage hybrid) character instead of the usual dual-wielding pure melee build I favor.

The Contents of My Bookshelf

My small collection of fantasy books keeps growing, and I thought maybe I should write down what I own. Couple (or more) books have been loaned (yeah, I know -- "Never loan a book.") and thus I don't have them with me at the moment. They're both (or all) Salvatore's Drizzt books but I can't recall which ones, so I'll just skip them, and instead just list what are actually here.

The Wheel of Time: The Fires of Heaven

The fifth book of The Wheel of Time is the first one (I don't know if it's the only one too) in the series to completely ignore one of the ta'veren -- Perrin doesn't appear in the book at all.

(April's) Monthly Roguelike: Incursion

I decided to drop the 'review' part from the title of this series as I don't seem to play each new roguelike more than couple hours at best. Thus my posts are more first impressions than proper reviews (implying I know how to write such things).

Also, this was s'posed to be done yesterday (when it was still April) but I found that Incursion didn't look very playable on a 1024x600 resolution netbook screen. So I had to wait until I got to a bit larger one.
