Stronghold Kingdoms Online

Stronghold-Kingdoms-OnlineThe online version of the popular 2d/3d isometric castle games imagined by Firefly Studios. It is a turn based and yet a RTS at the same time. It is one of the better castle defense and attack games that is out there with both free and paid memberships to keep you building castles until the wee hours of the night or morning.

This game is truly addictive as you start from nothing more than a Village Idiot to that of a king of an entire region. You start your Stronghold life with nothing more than a small keep which you then have to manage. You have to see to the needs of your subjects but also the safety of them as well. You do this by placing buildings in your village that will help to maintain it as well as provide resources to both build with and trade with. As you build up your resources you are able to build your castle which defends your village. Much time is going to be spent building and maintaining that thing, so make sure you always have resources on hand, especially have a bandit or player attack.

If you like the strategy of the Pacific Rim standard arcade game of pachinko, then you will love Pachinko Pop! We start with a silly storyline, of an artifact sending an amateur archeologist and her nephew in a blast to the past. They find themselves in Egypt, and now they have to play their way throughout the ancient lands along the Eastern Mediterranean Sea to find a way home.

Tropico 5 is the latest version of the Tropico Series that Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games has released and is one hell of a city builder. It was released for download by the Kalypso Launcher on May 23rd with great anticipation from gamers. Even though Tropico 4 and Tropico 3 has some issues gamers looked to 5 to fix those and keep the series alive. In some ways this is true but in others it just isn’t so.

Some gamers, the more vocal ones, are calling this game just a reason for the two companies to sell DLC add-ons for stuff that should already be there. You will notice that the stars that have been given do not reflect some of what I am saying here. The reason is that as a stand alone product is is a very good game. When looking at it with the rest of the series in mind it is lacking in many ways.

Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin’

If you are looking for a varied challenge, then please, swing by BFG and download Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin‘ right now! While it is a hidden object game, it has none of the dark tones of many of the games out there, and since it is free to play, you will only be losing the time you put into to it, unless you want to purchase little side items to make it run quicker. this is no rush to the end of the game, because, like LOTRO, it is always being updated. In fact, they just tied up their Thanksgiving holiday special, and I am really looking forward to the one for the winter holidays.

I had finally played the first Assassin’s Creed game and it is pretty good but, I like number better than this game. This game take place in the Middle Ages. You are fight against the Templars and the Crusade. After I played this game, I know now that Crusaders are bunch of tea partiers and republicans. When I was playing this game, I saw the crusaders were treating the poor people like crap. In this game, I help out the poor people and save them from getting killed. I know the crusaders didn’t care about anything but except for there own selves. They didn’t care about the poor and they care about anyone except their “Holy War”. They didn’t care about women. They use the women for only making babies. Sometimes they would kill women, too.
