Chapter by Chapter – Ghost Trick

Another new feature of the site!  Unlike other features that I’ve experimented with this one is more easy to follow through with.  Basically these will be the first impressions a game gave me through each chapter or level of a game.

In this page we’ll look at Ghost Trick for the DS.  To those who have played the game you know how fun it is to guess the plot twists but for those who haven’t played or completed the game be warned I spoil the entire game.

Detective Grimoire 2!

Hey there!  Remember me?  I used to post here and I even started this blog once.  The site would be pretty dead if it weren’t for Gumby.  Life’s just been too busy.  Anyway I’d like to bring attention to Detective Grimoire 2, the sequel to one of the best games made by Super Flash Bros. The game’s blog opened a month or so ago but it was pretty barren back then.

Swords & Soldiers HD Review (PC)

You have to commend Ronimo Games for attempting to design an RTS game specifically for consoles rather than try their hardest to cram the PC RTS design onto a console and gamepad.  It works for consoles but the limited design hurts the game, now that it’s on a platform where RTS games flourish.

Big Week for Swords & Soldiers!

Swords & Soldiers lands on PC & Mac, gets Move support & new demo on PS3

UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS – December 1, 2010 This week the armies of Swords & Soldiers bring their tactical action gameplay to different shores yet again! After duking it out on the pearly white beaches of the WiiWare service the brutal Vikings, the vicious Aztecs and the devious Chinese arrived last month at the pitch black moutains of the awe-inpsiring PlayStation®3 system. Infusing the game with a new innovative online mode and eye-poking HD & 3D graphics the PS3 version exposed console gamers to the glory of cartoon warfare in a way never before seen on this planet. And now the Swords & Axes have been sharpened to do it all over again: Swords & Soldiers has arrived on PC & Mac! So now the everlasting wars are no longer contained to the living room. Featuring the same 30 level single player campaign, customisable skirmishes, 3 highscore bonus games and Steam powered online functionality, the PC version has every bit of brawn as the PS3 version. So support us by buying it from our store (http://ronimo-games.com/SwordsAndSoldiers/html/store.html) or get it from Steam! Both routes will get you the Steam enabled version which can then be installed on Windows as well as OSX.
