For the past few months I’ve been playing various online games on Kongregate and ArmorGames.  There I found a Magic knockoff called Elements the Game.  It’s pretty enjoyable and there are upwards to 15 different elements each with their own complete decks.  Tis rather customizable once you start out with your starter deck.  And if you happen to dislike the deck you chose, you later have the option of changing it for something else, for the cost of 100 or 200 coins (i’m not sure, I haven’t looked at it lately).  Beyond that, once you have enough coins (1500) you can upgrade cards to epic awesomeness.  There are different levels of elemental decks to challenge, of which levels 2 and higher have a cost where upon losing you lose the amount challenged.  Level Two is fairly easy to beat.  Sometimes there are bugs where it will give you the same card 7 times even if you only have 5 copies of that card.  However the developers welcome feedback and do try to update the system so as to improve it.  Anyway, give it a try, it’s a nice respite from life even if for only a couple matches before you go on with what you actually need to do.

Dragon Age.  I’ve been waiting for more than a few months to get my grimy little paws on this game.  First for it to come out, then for it to come down in price/get it for free for Christmas.  I refused to pay $70 for a game, even if it happens to be as phenomenal as it has turned out to be.  Anyway after a very nice brother bought it for me on Boxing Day, I’ve since started it, and do not regret the hours I’ve already poured into it.

The graphics aren’t the greatest to look at, but the voice actors chosen are wonderful.  Claudia Black (Valla from Stargate SG-1),  and Tim Curry (Scar from the Lion King) are just two examples.  The game works out like a movie, but it played like KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic).  If you’re bored of the turn based games such as Lost Odyssey, Dragon Age offers a different variant of the Fantasy RPG genre.  Remember those “Choose Your Own Adventure” books from the 90s?  Dragon Age is exactly like that.  Every choice, side quest, change in character affects the outcome of the game.  The gameplay and story is what you make it out to be.  Thus there is endless replay value, on top of the hundreds of hours needed to complete the game.

If it weren’t for classes starting up again at the University, I’d spend most of my days playing it.  It’s rather addictive, and very entertaining.  I’d recommend it for anyone, whether you are new to gaming, or a veteran of the older console games.
