Acolyte – Review

I don’t often review games anymore because I don’t have the time to play games for fun, let alone have enough time to properly dedicate to a game review. When Acolyte needed to be checked out for review, I offered to review it since our other PC reviewers were already

Postal 4 was a blast, but Postal: Brain-Damaged takes the Postal series to an all-new level, with fast-paced action gameplay, and going where the franchise has never been before; into the mind of the Postal Dude himself. It’s certainly different from the other Postal games, released by developers Hyperstrange and

The year was 1992. We had just purchased a new, powerful PC for the household. It was a 486DX2-66 with 8mb RAM, 540mb Hard Drive, and a dual-speed CD-ROM. It was on this PC that I got my first taste of an interactive FMV (Full Motion Video) game. The game
