The other day the topic of most under rated games came up in conversation which got me to thinking about Heroes of Normandie. I own a lot of what people would consider war or strategy games, in fact as I write this and look to my left I see Fire in the Lake, War Stories and Unconditional surrender all sitting patiently waiting to be played. Heroes of Normandie is the one of those rare games that delivers the full package of what I want in a war game.
Do you like building things? Do you like building things for the primary purpose of killing medieval soldiers and bringing down a variety of castles and fortified structures? Do you like the idea of creating an unstable, waddling battle-tank using 12th century technology and then cackling maniacally as said ‘Ye Olde Mech’ turns a battalion of medieval soldiers into a cloud of blood and gore?

Thanks to the wonders of technology I’m able to review The Witcher Adventure game in both board game and digital formats. I’m a big fan of this computer roleplaying game series.

Hand of Fate is an interesting game for the PC. It’s a mix of a deck builder; create your own story and action RPG. In Hand of Fate your across the table from some mysterious guy who talks way too much for my liking. He has assembled these cards which lead you on a story, in campaign mode at least. Each part of the story culminates in a fight against a boss. As you progress you acquire coins for beating them and some other cards as well.
How does a game that seemingly nobody knew about last week become one of the most anticipated games of 2015? Simple you use the Dungeons & Dragon license, base it on the 5th edition rule set and then put it in the Forgotten Realms Sword Coast. That right there would have been enough to make it a solid title but developers n-Space and Digital Extremes did something else entirely. In addition to a single player game, they added a 4 player co-op and the ability for the 5th player to act as Dungeon Master.
