Writer Darik Kirschman takes time out of his busy schedule of pillaging local homes and bathing in the blood of his enemies to review Stoic's The Banner Saga. "If there’s a single word to describe The Banner Saga, it would have to be epic. An overused word that has lost most meaning, playing Stoic’s turn-based tactics masterpiece will remind those of the word’s true definition. Lasting long enough to never overstay its welcome, it instead leaves players wanting more pillaging and bloodshed. If this is the caliber of game to be expected of them, Stoic Studio has my sword and shield. I’ll gladly pick up their banner and braid my beard."
