Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a historically accurate Skyrim

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

When you hear the words “Medieval” and “RPG” in the same sentence you probably think of hacking away at mystical dragons and monsters with your sword or axe.

Review: Sims Medieval iPhone App

Sims Medieval iPhone Icon

I will start out by saying this is the first Sims game i have ever played. The Sims never appealed to my gaming taste. Guiding a cyber-human through mundane daily tasks, after I just finished my own real-life mundane daily tasks just didn’t sound like entertainment. Then along came Sims Medieval and it sounded more…

The Sims Medieval, there’s an app for that

The life of a peasant in the Middle Ages is not the first place I’d think the primarily consumer culture-driven The Sims franchise would explore, but in a strange way it makes some sort of sense. Much like its modern counterparts, The Sims Medieval is about trying to push your little virtual person up the…

Review: King Arthur: Fallen Champions (PC)

King Arthur: Fallen Champion (hereafter: KAFC) is a $10 standalone stopgap between King Arthur: The Roleplaying Wargame and King Arthur II. Set in the mythical kingdom of Britannia, what seems like a boilerplate medieval romp veers off into fantastical absurdity almost immediately.

New trailer for The Sims Medieval

Electronic Arts released a new trailer for The Sims Medieval. I haven’t caught the ‘The Sims Medieval’ fever yet. I was never a fan of ‘The Sims’ and I’m not sure putting them in a castle will sway my opinion. Of course I have been wrong before.

How The Sims Medieval hopes to hook noobs

The Sims Medieval is a big leap away from the free-play Sims 3 experience. EA hopes this special Limited Edition will tempt legacy players and newcomers alike to give it a go.
