Thoughts on King Arthur II

I can hardly call this a review, but after seeing King Arthur and King Arthur II on sale on Steam, I felt compelled to write up some of my thoughts on the two games.

I enjoyed the first game, despite playing it late. We never reviewed it on the site (Joe doesn't always get on with the RTS genre), but its blend of RTS and RPG elements made for a fun and original experience. It had its faults, but its new ideas, and the fact that it had clearly had so much love poured into it by its developer Neocore, made these easy to overlook.

Gaming 33 - The Mass Effect Pubcast

Posted on 11th Sep 2011 at 10:29 by Podcast with 4 comments

Podcast
Our developer Jamie Cuthill and friend of CPC Joe Percy join Joe, Clive and Paul for another post-pub podcast this week, fielding your questions and discussing the latest gaming news.

We also try to put the over-talked issue of Mass Effect 2 to bed once and for all, with Jamie walking us through his thoughts on playing the first Mass Effect games back to back, while Joe and Paul argue over who is the best squad-member in the game.

Mass Effect 2 isn't the only subject we talk about though - we also find the time to ponder the end of Star Wars Galaxies, as well as Gearbox's announcement that it's working on a new Duke Nukem title.

We may have only just come out of our tiny, smelly podcast studio, but we're still eager to give away more prizes in the name of bit-gamer.

This week we've got three PC games to give away courtesy of Paradox Interactive!

Forum Prize - King Arthur: The RPG Wargame
Twitter Prize - Majesty 2
Facebook Prize - Mount and Blade: Warband

We're also giving in to popular demand and opening the competition to the forums - but with a twist. What we'd like you to do is have a go on the Online Videogame Name Generator and see us what titles come out as a result.

Then, if you want to win a copy of King Arthur, post the result to comments thread below this article. If you've got your eye on Majesty 2 then send your title to @bit_gamer on Twitter. Finally, if you hope to win Mount and Blade: Warband, post your game name on our Facebook page (you may have to 'Like' the page before you can post to it).
