Quill is a young mouse with an adventurous spirit. Born with an explorer’s heart, she traverses the nooks and crannies of the Kingdom, a land that was once home to her proud race until it was usurped by the evil Sarffog, a fire breathing serpent. While exploring a forest, Quill comes in contact with a mysterious crystal that forges a connection between her and the game’s second major character: you
This might not be a popular opinion in 2018 but I still love real-time strategy (RTS) games. To this day every couple of months, I’ll boot back up an old Command & Conquer, Company of Heroes, or Age of Empires and run through a couple of skirmishes. For me, these real-time strategy games are comfort food. While my friends were off playing Quake, I was the Romans taking out hordes of Egyptians in my fifth street skirmish in Age of Empires II.

A journey isn’t complete without the adventure, and it’s the environment that shines brightest in Castle of Heart. Utilizing smart design choices, the land is traversed as a side-scroller platformer. You move the knight through the landscapes, jumping up and over obstacles both big and small. In sections such as sliding down roofs and leaping or ducking to avoid spikes, timing becomes often key.

I’m amazed at the breadth of options for gaming headphones. Think about it this way. Outside of PC gaming, we’ve only had a market for gaming headphones for the last ten years or so. Now we’ve got more options then we know what to do with and as a consumer, it can be hard to choose which headset is right for you. Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been testing out one of the leaders in gaming headsets Turtle Beach and their latest Xbox One headset the Turtle Beach Stealth 700.
No one has ever complained that the age of sail naval battle genre has been over-saturated, so I was looking forward to spending some time with Abandon Ship, now in early access. Snagging some mechanics from FTL, a Kraken or two from Pirates of Caribbean and iconography from 19th-century maps, Abandon Ship seems to be sailing along well towards a full release.
