Bob Richardson's Reviews

Lover of ideas and stories that improve one's life. Thinks games can be art. Enjoys the budding scholarly research being done to illustrate the inherent benefits of gaming. Life is meant to be enjoyed; please be kind to others, especially those different from yourself in thought or person.

Those invested in the series who haven't played this will find the best way to play it, while those with cursory interest may be left wanting.

A beautiful and heartfelt historical fiction with heavy themes of religion, purpose, and the influence we have on others over time.

Hilariously creative yet will also push the boundaries of what others find palatable.

Folks who enjoy lower-shelf humor will find much to enjoy here. Turn your brain off and you may find some fun to be had.

While it's not a bad game out of the gate, some people may not have the patience to see Triangle Strategy at its finest during the latter half of the game.

While I technically enjoyed Hard West 2, the onerous difficulty makes it hard to recommend.

The systems and inner workings of Foretales create a captivating, addictive experience, but the repetitive nature of character and location cards stymies an otherwise magnificent experience.

Don't let NORCO be lost to time: this is a must-play for those who don't mind a depressing tale.

I’m sure some folks out there will find the gameplay good enough, but even knowing how fascinating the story is, I wouldn’t have put over twenty hours into this game if I knew at the outset what I know now.
