    After my interesting, if brief, experience with Princess Gruoch I, I decided to begin a second game that is sort of the unofficial continuation of that first campaign. This time I set the date nine years after the death of Gruoch - thus, the year 1090 - but stuck with my beloved Scottish duchy of Moran. Here is the tale that unfolded.

    I discovered that my character was the 12 year old Duke Aengus I, son of the dead Aed Mac Aeda and my old character Duchess Gruoch, who was alive and well in this alternate timeline. Being 12 years old, I

    Yesterday dropped my first anticipated title of 2012: Paradox's Crusader Kings 2. While I did own the original, I never played it that much because I found it to be one of those games that had a great idea but could have been executed better, particularly in the UI department which made everything more difficult than it needed to be. Well, after playing last week's demo of the sequel, Crusader Kings 2, I was gratified to see that Paradox made many of the necessary changes and now the game is really beginning to shine. While you will have to wait a

    I've been increasingly feeling that miniatures itch. And that scares me. The last time I fell for board games and miniatures was during the gaming drought of the late '90s. Don't want to go out on a limb here, but despite the release of a number of strong titles over the past year, I am increasingly finding myself bored by PC gaming. Seems like most of the stuff coming out these days, while having nice chrome, just doesn't hold my attention for long because the chrome quickly dulls, leaving that whole "been there, done that" feeling in its ...

    Sven cursed the Bethesdian's gods for their trickery! All he ever wanted was to be left alone, to remain aloof from the madness of the world. But the gods would not play along. Rather, through some sort of cursed magic, he had found himself falsely implicated in the plot of some rebels. One day you go out to do a little hunting and gathering, and the next thing you know you're being marched to your own execution....

    Fortunately - if that is the correct word - some big, scaled flying lizard type of creature interrupted the festivities ...

    Distant Worlds might well go down in history as the PC gaming world's most immersive 4X sci-fi game. I don't know how the tiny CodeForce studio did it - whether by magic or passion or sheer brilliance - but this game has proven to come the closest to what I always wanted: a deep, open ended sci-fi civilization simulator. I just wish more people knew about it.

    That is why I have decided to write an on-going AAR - well, on-going until Legends, the hotly anticipated second expansion to DW, is released. When that drops, it's
