Infact, the courts of the Inquisition were some of the best courts in Europe for the time and had lower degrees of torture and higher standards of evidence. If you had to go to court in Europe pray that it was under the Inquisition for while the Inquisition went after heretics it was far superior to the courts of the king.
Does that mean it was good? Hell no, it was still a Mideival court that used torture to get confessions but it's not actually as horrible as people think.

Total War is going back to real world history but this time, it's China (the Three Kingdoms period, to be precise).

This looks really great. But I thought there was supposed to be a Warhammer 3 or maybe I am wrong?

This is the most well known period due to the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

Warhammer 3 is still gonna take a while since Warhammer 2 is still quite young. We are just getting the Tomb Kings at the end of this month:


And then we still have likely the same amount of DLC and Free DLC coming for us down the line, so there's still gonna be a lot happening in Warhammer 2.

Apparently TWW fans get butthurt when you tell them TWW2 is just a full-priced stand-alone expansion for the first game. I'm not sure if this is just them trying to justify their $120 (before DLC; up to $215 after) game purchase to themselves or if they're the ones that are just used to being fleeced by GW so they're okay with it.

Anthem has been pushed back to 2019. Not surprised. Curious to see how it'll land but not expecting much.

Unrelated, but heard some rumor that Microsoft is looking to acquire some companies to bolster their exclusives, with EA, PUBG's company, and Valve being thrown around.

Joker in telltale is by far the most interesting character in the whole comic world.


Especially Vigilante Joker.

He is fun as fuck i want an entire arkham like game about him.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey



-Set in Ancient Greece during the Peloponnesian War, hundreds of years before the founding of the Assassin Brotherhood or Templar Order.

-You play as a Spartan warrior, one of the direct descendants of King Leonidas. You can select your character's gender. Their name is Alexios if male, Kassandra if female.

-The story begins with Alexios/Kassandra as a mercenary who seeks to become become rich and reunite their scattered family. However, their relation to Leonidas has left them the subject of a "chosen one" prophecy that has led to them being hunted, even by their own father.

-As the Assassins don't exist yet, you don't have a hidden blade. Instead you've inherited the Spear of Leonidas, which they're not even trying to hide is a Piece of Eden, granting you supernatural abilities.

-A BioWare/Bethesda style dialogue tree, moral choices, and a branching storyline have been added. Your decisions will determine who wins the Peloponnesian War (how on Earth is that going to work?!).

-There will be BioWare style romance options, complete with "sex scenes."

-Naval combat returns in the same style as III and Black Flag. You'll use your ship to navigate the many islands of Greece and battle enemy ships.

Telltale is pretty much closing shop. Laid off almost all their employees (only 25 remain apparently) and they're only working on one project, and it may be the Minecraft Story Mode thing for Netflix.

No more Walking Dead, no more Wolf Among Us, etc.

Heard about that as well. The company was rampant in its mismanagement too, from what I've heard. No separation pay for over 250+ employees which were let go.

I've been having a lot of fun with Assassin's Creed Odyssey, the inclusion of RPG mechanics to the game (as light as they are) were a good move!

Long time no see.

After years of horrible development hell, Warcraft Total war has entered open beta, while it is rough around the edges a sastisfying campaing can be carried out for the most part

Orc wolfriders and darkspear raptors pass the rounds


Amani bear riders harrasing the glorious Lordareon refugees


Brave Lordaeron knights fight against the scourge of Lordareon in Lordareon for Lordareon


A bridge massacre after Khaz Modan chose to declare war upon Lordareon because MTW2 AI is treacherous as fuck


Yet whilst the Campaign to secure Lordareon rages, the people of Lordareon know that Lordareon´s security is not enough to end the war for the survival of Lordaeron, something else needs to be done

So the armies of Lordaeron sail north


While every inch won at Northrend is plagued by diabolical ice trolls, snow ursas, hostile dragon riding giants, enigmatic Nerubians and our dire enemy the undead, the people of Lordaeron gain ground


Meanwhile at the south we keep the dwarves at bay from their greedy grubby armies


At the mainland we assist our scarlet bretheren in the fight against the amani, humans have to stick together after all


And after 130 turns, we can say that Lordaeron is safe once and for all



At the end Lordaeron destroyed the Burning Legion and the scourge.
Khaz Modan was destroyed by the dark irons.
The dark iron was in turn conquered by the kingdom of stromgard.
The Horde completely devoured the entirety of northern kalimdor destroying theramore, the night elves and the naga, in the south only the Quiraji stood to face them.

Skids taps Megatron's Autobot badge.

Skids: Right. There. What does that badge even mean to you? How has wearing it forced you to modify your behaviour? I'm serious! How has being an Autobot in any way prevented you from doing exactly what you want? Because if the answer is "it hasn't"—then nothing you've said or done in the last six months counts for anything.

You got... Floran! You're not really sure where you came from, but amongst the trees and lush grass lands of Aurania you feel quite at home. You generally describe yourself as rather peaceful and carefree, after all, battling is just a game, right? Except, that is, when someone threatens your Tribe - then the hunt beginssss...
I bought the game and likely will buy Chucklefish's witch game too, but I am somewhat annoyed by the way their lack of communication concerning Starbound. Twice they've made a blog post stating that there would be news soon. Twice soon meant months of waiting.

To be honest, a "good" Joker already exists in the form of The Creeper, who I kinda wouldn't mind getting a game actually.

Also Freakazoid.
