Just thought I should quickly let everyone know that there’s a big sale on Sierra titles over at GOG.com this weekend. Titles worth mentioning include the entire Kings Quest series; my favorite series of all time, Quest for Glory; one of the best cRPGs that I never played, Arcanum; the entire Krondor series; and Vampire: The Masquerade. Check it out!
Okay, readers, it’s go time. The Kickstarter campaign for Lori and Cori Cole’s new game, Hero-U, just seven days shy of completion, but they still have a ways to go to reach the $400,000 goal that will guarantee the game’s release (right now they’re at about 60%). Trust me on this, these guys know what they’re doing in the way of game development and I have full faith in their ability to make a humorous game that is addictive, challenging, and, most of all, unique. If you haven’t pledged already, head over there now and secure your copy of the game. For a little extra, you can even secure a copy of the game’s sequel! We just have to get this one made first.
I had to steal a break from my constant stream of homework to tell you all (you, being my loyal readers, of course) about a couple of new projects in the gaming world that are currently getting kick-started on, well, Kickstarter. Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few weeks–or just don’t really stay on top of your gaming news, I suppose–these projects are going to sound like old news to you.

In spite of an earlier statement that I made to the effect of, I don’t want to rank my favorite games in any particular order because it reduces the quality of the game to a trivial numerical standard, the impending release of Skyrim has me constantly thinking about how I would arrange such a list. Look for a list coming to the site soon as I steal moments of free time to rank them when I can. If you would like to post one of your own, please do so in the comment section below.
UPDATE 1: I should clarify that this is to be a list of my favorite games ranked from 1-10 as opposed to what I deem to be the greatest games of all time. That’s a big enough difference to spare me the label of hypocrite, right?
UPDATE 2: Here’s a rough first draft (definitely subject to change):
- Quest for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness (PC)
- Metal Gear Solid 3 (PS2)
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind (PC)
- Panzer Dragoon Zwei (Sega Saturn)
- The Curse of Monkey Island (PC)
- Halo: Combat Evolved (Xbox)
- Baldur’s Gate II (PC)
- Mass Effect (Xbox 360)
- Warcraft III (PC)
- Final Fantasy VIII (PS1, although I played it originally on PC)
