Towns

What is it?

Towns is a game where you control people in order for them to establish a colony. Unlike most city-building games, Towns also includes a dungeon level and sieges which help give the game more depth.

Minecraft

Yes, it's a little overplayed.

Since I first began playing minecraft, I've wanted to either do a let's play series or a review, but it has always seemed like too many people are doing it- and badly, quite often.

Now, I'm an avid viewer of the Yogscast and their many Minecraft series, but I don't just watch others play it and have been making my own adventure map since November 2011.

Recettear: an item shop's tale

It's adorable! 

Recettear is a JRPG. Because it originated in Japan, it has your typical Japanese art style to it. What I really love is the fact there is a storyline- Recette is a young girl whose father has disappeared and left her massive debts. Tear, a fairy, appears to collect these debts- when she sees Recette, she ends up giving her the option of paying bit-by-bit rather than taking her house away, thus Recettear is born. Recettear is, by the way, Recette's item shop.

Sid Meier's Civilization V review

Setting up games

The game is relatively easy to set up, and if you don't know what to put as the settings then you can put it on "random" for pretty much everything. The pace at which you can play the game can also be altered, which is great for when you have a limited amount of time to play the game.

Greed Corp. Review

The settings menu

Now, I just opened Greed Corp. up to get into the settings. I realised how annoying they are. With a settings menu, there is usually quite a quick way to change settings- using a drop down menu for things like resolution or a scrollbar for things like sound or effects volume. Greed Corp. uses a click option for both, with each click for resolution acting in the same way as a drop down menu would but with the volume clicks only altering it by 1% per click, though you can hold down the button. A manual input here wouldn't be the worst idea in the world.

The muppets (2011) review

I saw this film when it first came out, in the cinema, and I have to admit that I enjoyed every minute of it. The setting, the cast and the plotline just worked together really well in this film and I am so glad- mostly because I'm a huge fan of the muppets in general and was a little worried that this film might not live up to my expectations of it.
