A Better Class Of Criminal: Blackguards 2

The original Blackguards was like a wax apple. I saw it sitting there in the fruitbowl of the internet - shiny, red and tempting - but when I plunged my pegs into it and tore off a mouthful I made a face like Stan Laurel chewing a wasp. I love tactical RPGs but the early missions of Daedalic's villain 'em up felt like puzzles with…

Strategic Scoundrels: Blackguards 2

I didn't get along with Blackguards, Daedalic's Dark Eye universe strategy RPG. On paper, it sounded like it might be a cup of tea that was almost entirely up my street but I found the early battles a slog.

I'm sure everybody goes through a phase when they want the baddies to win. That's why antiheroes were invented and why Han Solo shot first - if every protagonist was a beaming paladin, impressionable youngsters would flock to the guy with all the best tunes. Blackguards is a turn-based tactical RPG, with a focus on combat, and the characters in the player's party are a…

Taking The Black: Deponia Dev’s Turn-Based Blackguards

Hey, so, Deponia, right? It's pretty OK. The first lushly drawn adventure was worth a few laughs (at least, between all the thinly veiled sexism and crudeness), and the second one, er, significantly less so. Still though, Daedalic is by no means untalented, so its new project, a dark fantasy turn-based strategy called Blackguards, definitely inspires curiosity. For better or worse, humor appears to be…
