The RPG Scrollbars: Quests Done Quick II

It's Summer Games Done Quick time again! You know what that means. The final seal has been broken, the rivers are turning to blood, and High Dread Azagorath is free to destroy the land. But while people wait, they're doing speed-runs. And in celebration of that, I thought I'd take a dig through the archives for a few particularly impressive and interesting ones that take…

Two Worlds II lives, for some reason

Two Worlds! The half terrible, half wonderful 2007 RPG in which you upgraded your sword by strapping lots of other swords to it (which always seemed oddly logical to me)! Two Worlds II! The 2011 sequel I can't remember anything about, other than that it sadly dialled down the accidental comedy but also included angry monkeys who threw their own excrement at the player! And…

The RPG Scrollbars: The genius in the inventory

I forget which game it was, exactly. If I had to pick one, I'd say probably the text adventure Humbug. It doesn't really matter, as it's not really the game's fault, but I still remember the sadness of being told to go into the inventory and realising that while I was thinking of a big room full of bubbling liquids in interesting flasks and other…

Some Little Things I’ve Loved In RPGs, Vol 1

One of the main reasons I got into RPGs back in the day was that if you bought one, you were getting a lot of game for your money. That was important when there was only one birthday and one Christmas a year, and not much chance that some relative might pop their clogs in sync with Ultima VI coming out. Years later I no…

Twoer Defence: The Two Worlds 2 Spin-Off

Aaargh! I love tower defence games and I quite like Two Worlds 2 (even though they wouldn't send me review code), but I have both Portal 2 to finish and Witcher 2 preview code on my PC. No time! Nooooo tiiiiiime! Maybe you have time. Tell me you do. If you do, you should try the bizarre Two Worlds 2 spin-off game Castle Defense, for…

Two Worlds 2 Is Too Pretty

Ah, Two Worlds - the comically-translated RPG that malicious types (like me) could describe as the poor man's Oblivion. Or perhaps the drunken madman's Oblivion. It was utter nonsense in so many ways, but hard to dislike - it had a certain just-getting-on-with-it factor that its peers lacked, and offered no small amount of unintentional belly laughs. Also, you could improve your weapons by bolting…

Further Adventures In Two-Worlds

But, for now, only for people who bought the Game-of-the-Year edition. Developers Zuxxez have announced a "brand new multiplayer add-on", which will apparently allow some co-op exploration of the game quests, as well as a bunch of new content. Misleadingly written press releases make Baby Jim Cry. This content is now available for all Two Worlds owners to download. This includes some changes to the…
