Sometimes you just have high hopes that are wildly unrealistic for a game. Sometimes you get let down by that.
And sometimes you get mostly what you expect. The first Midnight Mysteries game seems to fall into that category.
By now you'll have seen my general take on driving games: more arcade, less realistic, handles like a dream and just lets me go crazy.
And with a title like Monster Trucks Nitro, you'd assume it'd be awesome, right?

As this has been a month full of retro games, it seems only apt that we look at a more modern game.

Today we're taking a look at a game I picked up in one of the indie bundles - that like Ninja Garden, seems to not be really an indie game. (At least, when it made its way to Steam it was published by a separate firm.)
We're taking a look at Bad Rats - 'the Rats' Revenge'.

Today we're taking a look at a quirky RTS game, called XIII Century.
The notion of a medieval battle RTS that has strategic consequences (more than just simple RTS techniques) intrigues me. Let's hope the game plays out.

Today on Game A Day, continuing our New Beginnings theme, we're taking a look at a game that I've not only not played, but if it weren't for having picked up a collection, I'd never have even heard of.
Today, I'm taking a look at The Wizard's Pen, by PopCap Games.

Day 14 brings us to 'N', and a title that seems to have caught attention in some parts of the world - Ninja Blade.
Before we begin...
I picked this game up from one of the indie bundles, and curiously enough I didn't actually know anything about it - normally I know a little something about a game before playing it, but not this. I couldn't even, immediately, figure out who published it for example.

Day 11 takes us to an interesting but polished RPG, King's Bounty: Armored Princess.
I haven't played any of the preceding games, but somehow I don't think this will be any kind of an issue. Let's see, shall we?

Day 5 of New Beginnings Month, and we take a look at games beginning with E - and today's choice is Elven Legacy.
Before we begin...
So before the main game starts I'm treated to a bit of backstory about the history of the world - that the elves had great power, that a student tried to learn it but that it caused a schism when he tried to steal the teacher's power. Cue the elf lord summoning the power of the dragons, or something, and smiting the traitor.
