Game releases (6 – 10 April 2009)

A short post for a slow week.

I played Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords, the predecessor of Galactrix, on the PSP and I was not drawn to it. I quit playing after 1 hour. But, there is no denying that I was in the minority of people as the game was immensely successful. Among those charmed and addicted to the game were a few friends of mine as well.

puzzqgalatrixmainheadNow D3Publisher, after the PC and DS release, is releasing the new Puzzle Quest: Galactrix on Xbox Live Arcade this week for 1600 Microsoft points (around Euros18). I have a link to one of the game’s trailers for anyone not familiar with the game. Link

Puzzle Quest:  Galactrix is my game of the week (Eurogamer review 7/10 – Link)

Alternatively, you can ignore games this week and get BBC’s Planet Earth on dvd or blu-ray instead.

That’s what I did…..

About the Author


Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life. Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded,, and on his personal blog,
