The Name Game: Hard West

I won’t get around to playing Hard West for a while, although I’d like to as its mix of cowboys, demons, and turn-based tactical gunfights a la XCOM (the new one, not the original) sounds interesting. What I can do now, however, is have some fun with the name. Not to suggest an alternate name — because Hard West is actually an excellent name — but rather to suggest possible titles for my eventual post about the game. There are so many options! See some below.

History Lessons: Divine Divinity (part 2)

You should read part 1 first. New readers may also wish to read my History Lessons Introduction before proceeding. Other History Lessons posts can be found here. And, as always, you can click on images to view larger versions.

Well, this didn’t go as planned. After writing part 1, I was ready to finish the game and share my final thoughts with part 2, but then I found myself without the time to continue playing for nearly a month. I did finally get back on track, however, so here is the belated post.

I’ve covered a lot of things already, but I wanted to go into a little more detail about developing my character, the combat that is so prevalent throughout, and how the story and later stages of the game shape up. Read on!
