Although this may set off a few red flags, its clever utilization of RPG elements makes it quite an enjoyable experience. However, the question remains; is it worth sticking around for dessert or should you cut this meal short?

To joust, or not to joust, that is the question
January 14, 2015 - Sometimes a game comes out with a title that explains everything you need to know. Obviously, this is a game about jousting while shaking a spear up and down. Although there's a bit more to it than that, you already have a firm understanding of what to expect.
