The Official RPG Reload Club Thread

Hello, my fellow TA forums members!

I am Shaun Musgrave, the review-writing, malfunctioning Pinbot machine. You may have seen my work on such sites as TouchArcade. Well, as you may or may not know, I have started a new weekly thing called RPG Reload where I play previously-released iOS RPGs and write enough words about them to choke a donkey. I'm doing this because I really like to play RPGs, I really really like to replay RPGs, and I really really really like to write a bunch of words about games I love.

Generally, articles will be going up on Thursdays, and I'll do my best to stick to that unless a family emergency or something intervenes.

Sounds great. Would love Shadowsun to get a 'reload'. Great RPG which is very underrated

I think Shadowsun is a wee bit too new for now.
The first Ravensword anyone?

Well, the Reader's Choice Reloads are up to the readers, so if the majority votes something fairly new, they'll get it.

I have my schedule planned through the next few months for the column, but I can always adjust it for balance if the Reader's Choices go in odd directions.
