Age of Wonders III was released at the end of last month by Dutch developer Triumph Studios. Please allow me to share my thoughts about it with you. Let me start right now by stating that I really enjoy Civilization V. The Heroes of Might and Magic series isn’t bad either. All of this being said, I have NEVER finished a game of either of these two games. Despite almost 300 hours of game play on Civ 5 and countless games of various iterations of Heroes of Might and Magic I have NEVER finished a game of either. I’ve been right on the ragged edge ofRead More →

Hooray! Thanks to the wonderful people at MMO Reporter, we have a complete video of the panel I moderated at PAX Prime this year. This is seriously exciting because we lost the audio for the panel so I wasn’t able to review it myself. Better, even, I get to review the question and answer section which is always my favorite part of presenting because the audience always comes up with the best questions that really get me thinking about things. How awesome is that?   I forgot at the end of the panel to reveal the gamer types of our panelists. So I’ll ask youRead More →
