SanctuaryRPG Wants To ASCII You A Question

You haven’t played an ASCII role-playing game in some time and you’re feeling gamer’s guilt? That’s OK, an endearing title by the name of SanctuaryRPG is here to rid you of those nasty feelings.

Honest Game Trailers On The Awkwardness Of A Jill Sandwich

I missed out on playing the original remake of Resident Evil on GameCube. Those were some of my saddest teenage years. Eventually though, I found myself in possession of a Wii and thanks to its backwards-compatibility feature, I finally got to play it in 2009. Not ashamed to say I enjoyed ever drop. I’m not sure if I’ll be grabbing the new remake-remake, but I don’t mind taking a trip down memory lane via this outing from Honest Game Trailers… unlocking those masterful nostalgia-filled moments, if you will.

Now, thanks to an Australian by the name of Gavin Clayton, you can fire up Daggerfall in your browser or, if you’re modding-inclined, go to town on the game using the tools he’s created.


Real Life Archer Who Got His Start LARPing Is Now Superhero Good

Slightly off-topic, but wow! So we’ve seen real life archers with unbelievable skills before. Lars Andersen though? He’s on another level… likely somewhere superhero-ish.

The latter has just started its second beta and is running for the duration of the weekend.
