If you stick around this site long enough you’re going to learn that I love two things above all else when it comes to video games. Virtual reality, and 3D platformers. Not long ago I had a major jones to play a good N64 era-like platformer, full of bright colours and silly characters. At the time there weren’t that many of them to play. I knew that Lucky’s Tale was coming to the Rift some time later, but I didn’t want to wait. (By the way, I will be playing some Lucky’s Tale over on the YouTube channel once I get that going.) I began searching YouTube to see if there were any new 3D platformers that I had not heard of. Who knew, maybe there were some on PC that I’d never played? I had been a console player for my whole life after all.
Everyone knows the “classic” board and card games: Monopoly, Candyland, and Uno just to name a few. Sadly, this is the extent of their game knowledge. There is a whole world of board and card games that use new and unique mechanisms, instead of the “roll and move” we all grew up with. For my first game review, I thought I’d start off with a “gateway” game. The term “gateway” refers to a group of games that are easy to learn and play, and introduce the new mechanisms to the gaming world. There are many games in this category, but Catan is often considered one of the best.
Welcome to Dad’s And Dragons, a website for geeks, dads, geek dads, dads of geeks and anyone else really. We are a “For Purpose” organization, which is a way of saying that we donate most of our profits to charity. We’re not in this to get rich. We’re in this to do something that we love to do and to help others in the process.
Gunfire games contacted me not too long ago and said they noticed that I hadn’t reviewed Chronos yet and would I like a key to be able to do so? I told them that I would love a key, but my system isn’t up to spec so I’m not sure it would run. I’m rocking a GTX 770 and a DK2 on this bad boy (I’m referring to my computer.) He said he was going to check with the team to see what they said about it. After a few days I became impatient and asked if he had learned anything and he said they weren’t sure but I was welcome to try it. And try it I did.
