Observations on GOG Diablo

So, now that Diablo is available on GOG, I played it a while and have noticed a few things. The game does seem to run well, though I think the windowed mode is a bit inconvenient, as you can’t move it around. I prefer to play some games like this in a smaller window and…

Stay awhile and… buy Diablo on GOG?!

Well this one came unexpected… GOG and Blizzard have partnered up and for their first game released Diablo exclusively on GOG (news item on GOG) I still remember playing the game originally on my 486 back in the days… even though the hardware requirements stated a Pentium. (To be fair, they were right on that,…

A closer look: Stonekeep (1995)

Several years after originally playing this game, I finally managed to have another go and complete it. Don’t even remember why I stopped playing it back then, to be honest. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a lack of enjoying the game. So, after having finally beat it, I think I’ll collect some of my thoughts…

Gaming Impressions: Undertale

Gaming Memories: Golden Sun

Gaming Memories: Game Gear Games

From other posts you might already know that the Sega Game Gear was the first gaming system I owned (got it as a christmas present). And I also wrote 2 separate posts on games that I had for it (Castle of Illusion and Dragon Crystal). But since I don’t really have some big story for…

History of a Transformers Fan – Part 2

The previous post ended with me watching the first season of the Beast Wars series on TV, which reignited my interest in the franchise. This was around 98/99 (the series only started airing in 98 here in Germany, 2 years after it was originally released) and stores here at the time had “Robots in Disguise”…

The Console I Could Never Put Down

   Whenever I think of Nintendo, I don’t often think of the NES, SNES, or even N64. My mind tends to go to the Gameboy Color, That lovely little plastic brick (or in my case see thru purple brick)  that was home to many amazing games. Dragon quest 3, a plethora of Pokemon games, and a…
