Wyverns & Waypoints is a blog dedicated to exploring dragons in video games. I’m searching for the game that fulfills the dragon power-fantasy I’ve had in my heart since I was a kid.

  • My Fantastic Ranch Review: My First Management Sim
    My Fantastic Ranch is an adorably chibi-fied ranch management sim where you raise dragons and unicorns with the goal of becoming the most highly-regarded ranch in the kingdom. It’s definitely targeted more towards kids, with a fairly simple gameplay loop and not a ton of content, but more casual adult gamers can find a few hours of fun in this vibrant fantasy world. Serious dragon enthusiasts and gamers looking for a deep management sim may want to give this one a pass, however.
  • Century: Age of Ashes Review: High-Intensity Action with the Trappings of a Typical Free-to-Play Game

I tend to bounce pretty hard off of multiplayer games, especially of the free-to-play variety. I just want to pay $40-$60 for a game that contains all of its content and not have to deal with grinding during limited-time seasons against other players who are just plain better than me.

  • Cancelled Dragon Games: Dragons that never were
    It’s no secret that games get cancelled all the time. In the indie development scene especially, it’s likely that more games never see the light of day than get released. And who knows how many games are started by AAA developers that we never hear anything about?

    Would it surprise you to hear that one of my favorite playable video game dragons can be found in a game that otherwise has nothing to do with them?
