Fun gameplay is in the eye of the beerholder this week as Matt reviews the 1991 dungeon crawler from Westwood Associates, Eye of the Beholder. Closely modeled after FTL's seminal game Dungeon Master from '87, Eye of the Beholder unites the real-time dungeon crawl with the AD&D ruleset with mixed results.

Countdown to your own personal Doomsday with Buck Rogers and Doc Barton! This gem doesn't tend to get the attention of the flagship Gold Box series, but don't let that stop you. Bring on the space rats!

Do most Goldbox fans really not play the XXVc games?
Strange, they're really good.

Here we go with Drakensang, a 2009 game based on The Dark Eye RPG system from Germany. It's awesome, but sadly never got the attention it deserved outside of its native land. Time to rectify that! This is an amazing game that's well worth your time and money whether you played it back in the day or not--at least in this man's opinion. Hey, in addition to great audiovisuals and interesting RPG mechanics, it's got Wolf Rats--need I say more?
