Pocket Kingdom Review

It’s another review of an N-Gage game, this time for an RPG-ish game called Pocket Kingdom. I think it’s called that because you have a little kingdom that you grow and the N-Gage can be carried around in your pocket, but I’m not exactly sure.

This game is not my cup of tea. (It should be noted that a cup of tea isn’t really my cup of tea, though, either.) I’ve played maybe 6 or 7 RPGs in my gaming life, and three of them were either Star Wars- or superhero-related. These no-name RPGs, if they don’t have a compelling story, just aren’t worth it for me. You spend all your time trying to “level up” your characters, but there’s no real point to it other than being “levelled up.” It seems pointless to me.

At this juncture, many will hop in to say, “All video games are pointless!” Thank you for pointing that out.

Anyway, there’s my review. Read it if you like.

    It's an ego thing. You build up your character, you fight with it, you kick some butt, and you feel great about it. It's a big ego stroke, those games are.

    All video games are pointless.

  3. MadMup says:

    …says the guy who loves to play fishing video games.

  4. the obscure says:

    and tetris.

  5. the obscure says:

    besides, fishing "games" are actually training simulators for my real life.

  6. hp says:

    Yes, much like I play Masquerade: Bloodlines as training in case I'm turned into a vampire any time soon. Can't be too prepared.
