Another day, another turn-based strategy game. It wasn't always like this, dear readers. I used to write about stuff like WipEout. I had aspirations, damn it.So thick and fast has been the onslaught of late that I've exhausted my stock of role-playing game article introductions. There's the one where you harken back to the gilded days of pen-and-paper dungeon crawling. There's the one where you comment contemptuously on the tendency to harken back to the gilded days of pen-and-paper dungeon crawling. There's the one where you simply list all the classic tropes and foibles- random battles, leveling etc- in the hope that somewhere along the line you'll find a thread. And finally there's the one where you get a bit sick of it all, down a few high-powered mixers and wake up six hours later clutching seven pages of tearful fan fiction."
