[Review] The Temple of Elemental Evil

The Temple of Elemental Evil is a D&D based computer RPG created by Troika Games. It's created based of the pen and paper D&D adventure version. The game was published by Atari in 2003.

Even if you're into D&D games like Baldur's Gate, Neverinter Knights, or Pool of Radiance, there's a good chance you haven't played this game. It became super popular and isn't mentioned all too often. Why is that? Well, I'll get into that.

First, let me start with why this game is awesome. It features detailed 2D character models and very fluid animations. The maps and ambient effects are very well done.

It has by far, the best adaptation of the D&D ruleset and gameplay out of any D&D based game as of yet. If there ever was a game that truly emulated the pen and paper feeling, it's this game. The battle system is very in depth and allows very strategic gameplay.

So why isn't the game well known? Where do I start?

Blog Destroyer.

As you should know by now, I've been putting my blogging time into working on the blog instead of making actual content. This post is no exception. But I do have a little something special for ya. All this hard work* I've done, I'm going to let you destroy it all.

I do have content in mind though, this is just a cleaver distraction. Anyways, whatcha waiting for? Get to shooting.


Controls: Arrow keys move the ship, space shoots, escape closes it.

Post your high scores! For the next few days I will have extra posts showing on the front page to allow for extra points.Destroying the picture of me should be worth extra.

A few updates.

LotRO's Harvestmath festival ended this week. You can read about that here.

The second GSL tournament finished up with NesTea taking first place over Foxer. This gave NesTea a GSL S-class rating. Commentary of the tournament is available on GOMTV.

Still working on the blog a little bit. I'm planning on retitling most of my posts and making pages for each category here soon. A couple people said my new colors were a little too dark so I brightened the tones a bit. Hopefully it's a good middle ground.

If it feels like I slacking on the content, it's because I totally am. Once I get the blog looking the way I want it too I will go back to posting somewhat interesting* things.


Just look, please. :(

Newish blog design.

Over the weekend I worked on the blog lay out a bit. I think it looks a little better but I still have a few things to do, which I plan to get done before the next really long post.

I had a pretty lame weekend but I think it's past. I found some old music I used to listen to as a kid and played it, it made me feel better. It's embarrassing though so I'm not going to say what music it was, but I used to listen to it on a record player when I was only 5 years old.

Anyways, I'm going to be working on the blog some. I don't really know what I'm doing so if you notice anything strange or out of the ordinary let me know so I can fix it.

<!-- /run.script: steal credit card numbers -->

Uh, I gotta go. I think my blog is being eaten by some... Linux... or something. And I have NO idea how that credit card stealing bit got there. I mean, I sure didn't put it there...

(sbemail reference ftw?)

Weekend didn't go as planned. Neither did today. The post I was planning for today will be delayed because I'm getting super drunk instead. I'll post it tomorrow morning.
