Aspyr has given a new generation of RPGamers an ideal opportunity to experience BioWare’s Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Alex Fuller finds that while the combat very much feels like it was designed twenty years ago, the rest of the game stands strongly in an excellent port.

Welcome to the jungle, and the wetlands, also some deserts, plus mountains, forests, and caves too. Anna Marie Privitere discovers a lot of expeditions awaiting RPGamers, and all of them are appropriately curious.

The Mary Skelter trilogy is complete with the release of Mary Skelter Finale, which comes with a ready way for newcomers to get caught up on events. However, with dense systems and unbalanced pacing, Alex Fuller reports that it’s definitely one for the fans.
