Playing Around – Behind the Witcher

It’s been 10 years since The Witcher video game was released. It’s an RPG (based on a series of novels by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski) set in a medieval world. The main character is, not surprisingly, a Witcher, which is a monster hunter with supernatural powers. It’s been popular enough to not only get high ratings, but also two follow-up games. And now, on its tenth anniversary, there’s a documentary.  Continue reading Playing Around – Behind the Witcher

Irregular’s Intel – Late to the Party

I am LOVING Diablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition. For those who don’t know, it is a hack and slash fantasy RPG video game. There are several classes that you can play, based on your preference and personality. There’s the Barbarian, Demon Hunter, Monk, Wizard, Necromancer, Witch Doctor and Paladin.

Playing Around – An Epic Adventure

December 2015, we treated ourselves to a new gaming system. We had not had anything new since the Wii, so it was high time for an upgrade. We bounced between the Xbox One and PS4. Both had their pros and cons, but there was one factor that did it for me… the Uncharted series. I wasn’t interested in jumping on the Tomb Raider bandwagon, I wanted something fresh. From everything that I had heard over the past few years, Uncharted was it. Plus, they had just released Uncharted 4 and there was a collector’s pack with 1-3… so guess what I did?  Continue reading Playing Around – An Epic Adventure
