Time to Loot Journal: Blaugust 2023

This is it, folks. The 31st post on the 31st day, bringing to an end the optional challenge portion of Blaugust if not Blaugust as a whole, as that continues forward to the end...

Chivalry II Early Impressions

I never played Chivalry. Or Mordhau. Or really any of the other multiplayer medieval combat games. With the exception of Mount and Blade: Warband, I suppose — but even there M&B was primarily a...
