Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta First Impressions

Whenever we have a new MMO on the horizon, everyone piles there hopes and dreams on what ultimately becomes a letdown next to industry leader World of Warcraft.

Game Review: King’s Quest VGA Remake

I still remember my first King’s Quest adventure. My father and I had acquired a copy of King’s Quest V on a stack of 12 floppy disks.

Even after all of these years, I have never gone back and played the original King’s Quest game. I’ve played a fair share of all that Sierra, and later Dynamix, had to offer, but not the one that started it all, until this last weekend.
