RIP Ralph Baer
I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...
One of the best games of all time was called Pirates(or Pirates: Gold). It was an open ended game where you were, for all intents and purposes, a pirate. Well, even if you don't remember, the folks over at Eidos sure do.
Cutthroats is a spirited sequel of Pirates, trying to capture the glory of the great old game. Your job is to sail the Caribbean pillaging women, sinking cities, and raping ships. Oh wait, reverse that. Anyway, it's time for you to make your fortune in the New World.
