New Obsession: Kingdoms of Amalur

One of the downsides to PC gaming is buying a game and finding out too late that it isn’t compatible with your system. Before you say it, yes I know that most games do show their requirements but I am not really a tech person.

Recently I have gotten better at fixing these issues and can finally get around to playing games that have been collecting digital dust in my Steam library. The only remaining question, which one first?

I ended up picking the one I have been desperate to play after hearing folk rave about it, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.


After being brought back to life, you play as a hero who not only isn’t controlled by fate anymore, hence why you are known as Fateless One, but can change the fate of everyone you meet.

While I am still fairly early on in the game, level ten at the time of writing, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has already won me over. I love the freedom this game offers in term of changing all your abilities more or less whenever you want to as well as your combat style.

For me, I love playing Rouge characters in terms of combat, either by sneaking up and taking my enemy out quickly and quietly or simply slashing them to pieces so fast they don’t get the chance to hit me. Of course, this doesn’t always work but man is it satisfying.

However, the most satisfying moment is when you activate Reckoning mode and Fateshifting. By doing this you can take down seriously strong enemies like it’s nothing.

Needless to say that there is more to Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning than just the combat. The story is great as well. No spoilers but so far I’m really interested to see how this plays out.


The NPCs you meet during your journey are really interesting and really bring the world to life. Not to mention the quest you find while exploring end up showing you new parts to the world or are just fun. My favourite one so far is when you meet a wolf who has been cursed and become a human so you have to help him break the said curse.

Like I said I’m still fairly new into Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning but so far I am having a blast. I am so glad I picked it up during a sale but sad I didn’t get around to playing it sooner, but that is a recurring issue of mine.

Now if you excuse me, it’s about time I get back to playing it.
