Paeroka’s Ponderings: Goodbye, Rift?

As some of you know, I love Trion Worlds and the games they have created - well, most of them, at least. I have not always agreed with their decisions, but I don't expect to do so. They are in it to earn money, after all (employees want that to afford a roof above their … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Goodbye, Rift?

First Impressions: Parkasaurus (Early Access!)

Parkasaurus is a tycoon game where you get to build a dinosaur park. The game comes with cute comic graphics, but it has the depth that one would expect from a typical park-building game - or will have them at some point. It just launched into Early Acess today (with a price of 19.99 €), … Continue reading First Impressions: Parkasaurus (Early Access!)

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (June 2018): New games and E3

Do you know when we had our last Bookahneer's Geekwatch? In September 2016! To be honest, I actually forgot I had this column and whenever I had a few gaming things that got me excited, I thought: Nah, that's not worth a whole blog post. But that's exactly what this column is for, after all. … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (June 2018): New games and E3

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Defiance 2050

I had originally planned to write about my impressions of the Defiance 2050 beta, but for several reasons, I have not been playing it enough to warrant a whole and substantial blog post about it. During the first beta weekend it was mainly due to pain in my hand. Defiance, thankfully, is a game that … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Defiance 2050

First Impressions: C64 Mini

My brother and I didn't get along when we were kids. However, even we had some things we could do without yelling at each other. It was only a handful of things, but they were there and they are the most precious childhood memories now, of course. One was how he taught me playing table-tennis. … Continue reading First Impressions: C64 Mini

Northgard

Quick First Impressions Review: Northgard

I've promised to write down my impressions of Northgard on Twitter. The game released tonight, exactly two hours ago and since it is an early access game, you will not get my usual first impressions review, but a very quick first impressions review. :p I will - depending on the outcome of this first glance … Continue reading Quick First Impressions Review: Northgard

Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

I have recently tried hopping into Elder Scrolls Online again and as I want a fresh start, I looked up guides and possible builds for the classes, to get a feeling for which class I may want to play. While I did that, I noticed that several posts about builds (e.g., this one or this … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: Racial skills?

Urban Empire: First Impression Review

I got the game, Urban Empire, as a Christmas present from bookahnerk. It released on January 20, so there was quite some aniticipation built up there. I had watched a few streams about the game and read a few articles from gaming websites (and a German gaming magazine), but I didn't read too much about … Continue reading Urban Empire: First Impression Review

My quest for hidden gems: Jazzpunk

I sometimes buy game bundles that come with a bunch of codes for games I never even looked at before... or I can't resist that sweet tempting "mystery game for 0.20 €" offer. Either way, these games are often not even looked at once I have them (well, more so for the bundled games than … Continue reading My quest for hidden gems: Jazzpunk

Paeroka’s Ponderings: When is a game worth your money?

I know there are a lot of gamers with a huge backlog of games and a bad conscience whenever they get yet another game even though there is this long list of games they never or hardly played. Most of the time, I compare the money I spent on the game with the amount of … Continue reading Paeroka’s Ponderings: When is a game worth your money?
