Matt Chat 228: Review of Might and Magic X: Legacy

This episode is a review of the new Might & Magic game from Limbic Entertainment. Check it out here. I’ve been playing the game steadily since this review, but have still not managed to beat it–and thankful for it. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a game this fun to look forward to coming home and playing.

Sure you love CRPGS…But have you ever wondered what it’d be like to be the mastermind behind those dungeons you love exploring? To be the evil warlord yourself? In 1997, Bullfrog Productions gave us that chance in the form of Dungeon Keeper, an awesome DOS game that became a cult classic.

Matt Chat 220: Wizardry 8

I finally got around this week to playing a true CRPG classic from Sir-Tech and Brenda Brathwaite: Wizardry 8! This is an awesome game that I would love to see more of today: full 6-party character creation, strategic combat (you get a choice between “phase” and “continuous”), and of course, an epic storyline.

If you want to buy the game, use my affiliate link from At $5, this is a real steal, especially when a boxed copy might set you back $60 or more.
