Okay PC old-school gamers, this is something special for you. ION Storm’s outstanding RPG that was based on the Quake 2 engine, Anachronox is now available on Good Old Games. Anachronox is charming, intelligent, witty, fun, and entertaining from the very first minute you start until the final lovingly-crafted moments of the engaging story.
The game is not simply an RPG: it combines Japanese-style elements (like fairly linear story, cinematic direction, and turn-based non-random battles) with Western-like side quests, dialogues, and sense of humor, mixing in some puzzles and a story straight from an adventure game for good measure. Yes, the game was known to be kind of buggy at launch, but a pair of official patches and a later pair of fan-made patches have taken care of that and you can play it with virtually no issues. The most important thing is that the story flows like an entertaining novel–light-hearted, bizarre, and humorous, but at the same time the gameplay is addictive and challenging.
Anachronox is priced at $5.99 and features 50+ hour long adventure with a huge world to explore with many secrets to discover and mysteries to solve.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
