The name’s Davenport. I review games.
So the other day I was in my office, mindin’ my own business — funny how often these stories start that way — when a fella in orange robes comes teleportin’ in. And I gotta tell ya, this guy was a total blockhead.
No, seriously. His head was an actual gray cement-lookin’ block.
“Greetings, human,” he says. “I am Bob the Blonin, blessed of the Glorious Cube. I bring to you this review copy of Far Away Land: Tome of Awesome.”
He hands over the book, and I give it the once-over. Big book. Funny art. Funny name.
“Is this game some kind of a joke?” I says.
“No, indeed,” he says. “True, it describes a frequently humorous world, but a world nevertheless ripe for awesome adventures! And with an equally awesome light system!”
“Huh,” I says. “Okay, you’ve got my interest.”
“So you will give it a fair review?” says the blockhead.
“Yeah, I’ll give you a square deal.”
