On Magic in Fantasy-Philip

Most Fantasy has Magic. But then, when there is too much Magic, the book becomes hard to read and hard to take seriously. 

But if there is just a spot of Magic, (and if the rest of the story is good), then the book should be really good. Of course there are some exceptions. There are books that have such bad characters or some that just aren't written well. But that's the same in any genre.

If you're thinking about the Lord of the Rings (from now on LOTR) having magic, then you're wrong. Neither Gandalf nor anyone else use magic. All of their supernatural abilities are given by the Ainur, or Gods. Let's just say that Gandalf is a divine class not arcane. In fact, Gandalf himself is a demi-God. He came from the west to keep an eye on Sauron. 

So when you're looking for fantasy. Don't go for the book with millions of spells and powers that the arcane know. Go for something simple, but enjoyable. Happy Reading!

Machinarium Review - Zak

Machinarium is an incredible new point-and-click adventure from the czech studio Amanita Designs.

Going into this game, I was reluctant. After having a bad experience with many online flash point-and-clicks, I had no idea what to expect. But believe me, this was no flash game. The outstanding visuals and logical yet fun puzzles immersed me in the oil-filled, rusting city.

The story is decent yet intriguing enough to keep you playing, granted, a lot of it is fairly humerous, with a jolly overtone and rather 'silly' (yet logical) puzzles, yet serious moments still occur, even upsetting or creepy ones.

At points however, you will be crying for a walkthrough. A majority of the puzzles involve finding objects and making things to help you, much like many text-based games, however there is nothing more annoying then struggling with a puzzle then finding out that there was something on the floor that you missed.

However Machinarium makes up for this with an incredibly helpful hint-system. And since every-little-thing that you accomplish is so satisfying, it is still fun to look-up a walkthrough and just watch the character and scenery interact.

The visuals alone are enough to make you want this game, but when you through some of the most atmospheric music (a new soundtrack for EVERY ROOM), brilliant puzzles, some hilarious comedy, and some clever 'level'-design on top, you got one big-ass oil-flavoured wedding-cake. If you enjoy text-games, puzzle games, visual games, or even RPG games, you are bound to enjoy this. Pick it up for only £6.99 on the app. store (for computer) or buy it on their website, a great deal, considering how long the game is. My final thoughts are; poor art-team.
