Space Beast Terror Fright, oh my!

SBTF

A little background…I was there when the FPS was invented [que the angels singing], Wolfenstein, Doom, Quake, Unreal Tournament, in the beginning I played them all.  Sure, time has marched on, reflexes have dimmed, no more snatching the pebble out of the master’s hand.  However, Two hours of play time with Space Beast Terror Fright (“SBTF”), or as I like to call it, “how I can die a dozen times in a half hour simulator”, and an impression has definitely been left on me with a giant kick to my ass!

Grogheads Is Loving Field of Glory: Empires!

launchfeature

If you’ve been reading the Groghead’s front page for the last week or so you have seen the couple of teaser articles we published in anticipation of the Field of Glory: Empires (FogE) launch on July 11. It has been a while since a PC strategy game has generated the kind of excitement that we have seen in our forums.  So, we’re going to continue with our coverage here to hold you over until our detailed review is ready – the only difference being that you all can now play the game along with us. We even have a massive MP game set to kick-off on July 18 between 16 different GH forum members!

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire Review!

deadfire playerexperience 2560x1440

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire is the sequel to the Pillars of Eternity Computer Role Playing Game (RPG).  This review is based on 70 hours of play on medium difficulty.  My characters are now 18th level and I’m approaching the end game.  I purchased the game in December during the Steam Holiday sale without buying additional content.  I’ve also played Pillars of Eternity 1 to completion.

In Pillars of Eternity 2 (Pillars 2) your character wakes up from a coma on a ship.  In Pillars 1, the dungeons below your keep had a massive human statue made of adra.  The god Eothas animated the statue, destroyed your keep, killed most of your friends and servants, stole part of your soul, and marched off to the Deadfire Islands.  You are even more of a plaything of the gods as they order you to find out what Eothas is up to and stop him if necessary.  Nothing comes easy for a Watcher (someone who can see souls and talk to dead people).
