published on

Since January 2019, Doman Mahjong is a one of the Games you can play in the Gold Saucer in Final Fantasy XIV.1 That’s more than 2 years now! From what I have seen, at least is the West, it had very a rocky path to being an accepted addition to the…

Unique Mahjong Sets: Art or Gentrification?

published on

TLDR: Mahjong Sets with non-standard look are nothing new. Unique sets go “simple” branding to completely changing the look and/or rules. The most lazy change is just putting some branding onto the back of the tiles. But to me, those are also the most boring ones — changes in the tile faces…

A Look at MahjongSoul

published on

MahjongSoul is still around and it’s big. Just like everyone else, I jumped on the hype. At first, it looked nice. Then, I started to dislike it. With each little thing, I liked it less. Now, I don’t like it at all. I’m still around, since everyone else is still on it… Just like with Facebook. That’s just…

Final Fantasy XIV Companion App — 2 Years Later

published on

The Final Fantasy XIV Companion App has been released for almost two years now. How is my experience with the App until now? Why do I still use it? Is it even worth the time? I mean it’s released two years ago. Before we begin: if you collect emotes registering the app itself…

When “Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics” was announced, I was hyped to hear Riichi Mahjong would be included among the games. “I hope this is going to be good,” is what came to my mind. Why? Lots of people will buy it and get exposed to Riichi, which means more potential players…

published on

I loved the first Mario Party for the Nintendo 64. But over the years, I have come to hate Mario Party series: every instalment just kept getting worse. The last one I actually tried was one for the Wii. That was like the nail in the coffin for me with the series. Now,…

Good Game: Anno 1602

published on

Well, I suddenly got the urge to play Anno 1602: Creation of a New World (1600 A.D. in North America and Australia) again. While I could just play any current instalments of the series, I do miss something quite vital in those: the micromanagement of crop-growing areas is not even possible in those. As a…
