New: Best of the Blog

A quick note about a couple of small changes to the site structure: we’ve put together a Best of the Blog page with links to some of our longer-form pieces and series over the years. As it says on the page itself, we wanted to find a way to highlight these and put them on […]

FFG Mobile

Exciting news! We have a mobile version of the site, thanks to WPTouch. Owing to a combination of the plugin’s limitations and our own, the mobile site doesn’t have the same functionality as the desktop one. Our intention is that it serves as a more accessible way to browse reviews and view the latest site […]

upgrade complete

Hello everyone and welcome to the third incarnation of A Force For Good. That is, the site where Rik and I write about old PC games. The previous version was based on a basic scratch-built CMS I wrote eight years ago, and was rather in need of modernising. Unfortunately, that was going to take a […]

A quick note: everything before this point is archived from the old site.

all good things

adventure update

Given that the favourites were so well loved, and even 2nd-tier stuff like The Dig is very enjoyable, I do think comprehensive coverage is a worthy goal for a site like ours. All that’s left now are Zak McCracken and […]

Maintain radio silence

So no new content since the beginning of March. That’s pretty rubbish to be honest. In mitigation, we’ve both had (completely unrelated) housing issues to sort out. I was due to move house on 29th March but the new place wasn’t ready in time and we’d already packed up most of our stuff and blah […]

comments re-enabled

I’ve installed one of those “type the letters you see into this box” plugins to help fend off comment spam. Hopefully it won’t inconvenience anyone too much! In other news, Epic have added all the Unreal games to Steam. I’m not going to shell out on the whole bundle this time, as I’m not into […]
