    The Dwarves is a game that came out of a Kickstarter campaign, and it's absolutely the type of success you'd hope for as a gamer. It's a fun game with a really good story, thanks to a solid adaptation of good source material. It looks good and it sounds good, and my few frustrations with menu controls and a couple of battles I had a hard time surviving really don't diminish my appreciation for the game as a whole.

    The Dwarves feels too much like a project still in development to receive a higher grade. The best thing about it, however, is the franchise's future potential.

    The story, the characters, the setting... everything that surrounds The Dwarves is really good, but its gameplay and its length aren't that extraordinary. Still, it is a very enjoyable adventure.

    THQ Nordic and King Art Games bring us The Dwarves, an RPG adaptation of Markus Hetiz’s novels that, despite good ideas, doesn’t live up to its source material albeit its entertaining story.

    Offers a unique and enjoyable experience that straddles the lines between RPG, movie, and novel, and delivers a satisfying fantasy adventure. However, the many technical glitches can be frustrating, and the dull combat and noticeable lack of meaty RPG gameplay elements will turn off players looking for a richer gameplay-focused experience.

    Even though the setting is interesting and the overall atmosphere is beautiful some serious gameplay issues along with the terrible A.I. and the poor graphics make this game a missed opportunity.

    There are times when it looks like there’s a much better game trying to claw its way free from the technical and design issues that plague it, but they’re only fleeting glances at what could have been before it gets overwhelmed by the muck dragging it down. Fans of the books it’s based on might get some worth out of The Dwarves, but when compared to pretty much any other half-decent RPG on the market, it comes up short in almost every possible way.

    The Dwarves is an extraordinary game about displaying the prominent men of short stocky stature, who you have no doubt witnessed in fineThe Dwarves is an extraordinary game about displaying the prominent men of short stocky stature, who you have no doubt witnessed in fine movies such as Lord Of The Rings and The Hobbit. The difference is these Dwarf's in the game are all escaped convicts from the prison of Alcatraz, committing nefarious deeds such as, burning down a black orphanage, shooting a nurse for doing a Tic Tok video, released a bag of penguins into a shopping centre and even killing a transvestite for dancing in the middle of the road. Why these admirable deeds were met with stern punishment is unclear, however, it is clear who caused them to become incarcerated. Beings with long noses, who have a tendency to frequently rub their hands together, being famed for their greed and desire for gold, regardless of who said gold belongs to. These beings as I am sure we are all aware of are referred to as Orcs and Goblins, and are presented in this game. You play as Tungdil Goldhand, an escaped convict with a desire to avenge those who framed him. Along the way after killing a large amount of these Orcs and Goblins you encounter ally dwarf's in battle, and soon after the battle has been ended in your favour you discover that similar to yourself, these Dwarf's have also been framed. These Dwarf's reveal themselves to be apart of a distinctly homogeneous Dwarven group, who has waged war against their aggressors, for as they reveal a hidden conspiracy is underfoot. These perpetrators previously mentioned have for hundreds to possibly thousands of years attempted to wage war against and destroy all of Dwarven kind, affecting their entertainment, bribing Dwarven leaders into allowing the destructive Mud monsters, thieving Ratmen and other vermin into their cities and towns, and while this occurs the aggressors sit their with smiles on their faces. The motive for this is because the Orcs and Goblins believe that they are the chosen race, the one who should rightfully reign over the world, as shown in their book the Lorah, which claims that their God, Pinocchio has promised them power and glory, making them the chosen species to reign over the other species. This is where the Dwarfs come in, the Dwarfs are one of the only species who are able to pose a threat to the Orc's and Goblins, being powerful adversaries as demonstrated by a previous war which occurred, resulting in heavy Orcish and Goblin losses, before the Elf's stepped in to prevent a genocide. It was after that war, known as the Great Race War, that the Orc's and Goblins knew that they would be unable to win a fair fight, and so they are attempting to subvert control. This is also occurring to the Dwarven brother nations, such as the Humans, Elves and giant Eagles, who have for millennia been in an alliance. Fortunately, despite the predicaments which the vile perpetrators pose, the people of the brother races are gradually beginning to see through their lies, staging riots, uprising and attack against them, and the Mud monsters and Ratmen. Now I won't spoil the whole game besides the premise of the story, but let me assure all readers that the game has an amazing plot and ending, with the ending being that the leaders of the perpetrators and their migrating puppets being hung in town square, as statues of Pinocchio are torn town, with the Lorah burnt. This is all overseen by the protagonist, with his new Dwarven wife, with Dwarven children, symbolising a time of freedom, positive birthrates and a continuation of a proud race and distinctive culture, which unlike other races doesn't sniff petrol, demand welfare, abuse alcohol and have below 100 IQ, this game is immensely immersive, I recommend it immensely, but if you don't believe me just observe and analyse the other reviews.

    I absolutely love Peppa Pig !!! I understand people can think she is annoying . Are there annoying people in the world ?! Yes absolutely. It’sI absolutely love Peppa Pig !!! I understand people can think she is annoying . Are there annoying people in the world ?! Yes absolutely. It’s realistic. So you never called your parents fat? Honey I highly doubt it , it tells us about exercise and eating vegetables because obesity can cause severe problems. My cousin for example was highly obese and she needed to have surgery removing part of stomach. Is that preventable ?! Absolutely. It’s good to show that even to children . They need to learn since little about disabilities also. Peppa also has an episode about a girl in a wheel chair . That is brilliant!!!! They completely read my mind about what I think children should learn.I recommend to everyone and children . It doesn’t teach bad behaviour. People are a bit silly and they have to understand is a cartoon and the characters are ANIMALS .I find that show awesome and next year will be my 30th birthday, can really say is one of my favourite shows . Teaches us about British culture that is something rare to find cartoon wise .Children should watch it . Parents nowadays need to chill . When I was a kid there were crazy cartoons showing even violence and stuff like that . This one is very relaxing. I absolutely love it . Highly recommended.

    I LUV THIS SHOW. ALL MY FRENS LOVE IT TOO. I WANNA ME PRESHUL TO BE LIKE PEPPAS. PEPPA PIG IS DA BEST.
    PEPPA PIG REARLEATES TO MEH A LOT AND DADY PIG LIKE ME DADY. ME DADY VERY FAT 900 POUDZSSSS LIKE DADY PIG.

    Hey guys, I just thought I’d check in with some of my sexual thoughts about Pickle Rick. To begin I would like to clarify that although I doHey guys, I just thought I’d check in with some of my sexual thoughts about Pickle Rick. To begin I would like to clarify that although I do find Pickle Rick to be **** hilarious, my anal appetite far exceeds any hilarity that I feel. Real fans lust for Pickle Rick, wannabes laugh where we see opportunities to quench our insatiable appetites.

    So here’s the list of why I’d like Pickle Rick to **** me.

    1.) He would be able to see up inside my love glove and tell me about any deposits/polyps/hemorrhoids/cum jars I have littered throughout.

    2) I would be giving Pickle Rick pink eye most likely continually forever.

    3.) The eyelashes would tickle my insides, obviously he knows how to use them properly.

    4.) I could leave Pickle Rick inside of me and he would brine in my exotic juices, eventually he would become symbiotic with me through osmosis.

    5.) I haven’t even **** mentioned his tongue. Holy **** **** guys. His tongue. Imagine getting licked 14 inches deep by a little hamster or similar creature. It would be like he’s tickling the inside of my belly button :)

    6.) Luckily, Pickle Rick has little Pickle Rick teeth. Obviously I would pluck them out, one at a time, and swallow them. I would then get Pickle Rick nestled real deep inside me and wait for the tooth to pass through my digestive system. If properly performed, Pickle Rick would be able to ingest his own tooth before I pass it.

    7.) After copious anal play, I can wash off Pickle Rick by slamming him against the back of my throat repeatedly. It goes without saying that he would be ass-end first so I can maintain eye contact.

    8.) I can slap around my cock with Pickle Rick, using him as a makeshift club.

    9.) Compare cock to Pickle Rick and feel emasculated.

    10.) Convince Mom to film me doing Pickle Rick anal blowouts.

    11.) Form a perfect circle (not considering the scoliosis) with one end of Pickle Rick in my ass and the other end in my mouth.

    12.) Have Pickle Rick continuously scream into the void of my ****

    13.) Situate Pickle Rick between two cushions then get a running start and launch my bare gaping **** at him.

    14.) Make Pickle Rick watch me masturbate. Bonus points if he makes me cry during.

    15.) See if I can stuff Pickle Rick full of cum like a jelly-filled donut.

    16.) Experiment to see which body fluids Pickle Rick can float in. Beat off to results.

    17.) Make Pickle Rick spit into my urethra.

    18.) Rubber band Pickle Rick to my erection, vastly increasing the girth (and length).

    19.) Ball dragging.

    20.) Best of all, feedback from the man himself, Pickle Rick.

    That’s all I have time for today, but I’m sure you guys can come up with a ton more ways to **** Pickle Rick! Come back tomorrow and checkout my Noob Noob domination fantasy! The Dwarves I assure you is interrelated with this wall of text.

    I genuinely enjoy this show. I love that the characters and story lines are very family oriented and that they deal with real life situations.I genuinely enjoy this show. I love that the characters and story lines are very family oriented and that they deal with real life situations. To me, it teaches my almost 3 yr old how people should react in what could be potentially high stress situations. Everyone is always calm and talks things through with each other. As a Mom, I love that she sees a family relating to each other that way. My daughter, who is soon to turn 3 has been watching this show for about 6 months and she is so obsessed with it that she now refers to me as Mommy Pig, my husband as Daddy Pig, her big sister as Sissy Pig, and she talks with a snort and sometimes with a "British" accent, which we think is adorable so we snort back lol. So...for her upcoming birthday it is all things Peppa. Some toddler/preschool shows drive me nuts...but not this one.

    Peppa Pig was introduced to me in the most depressing time of my life, I had just poured my cereal in to my bowl and had realized there was no milk. I walked to my couch in a daze of shock and confusion and was greeted with the warm face of peppa the most beautiful waifu in the history of animation. She was building a castle out of cardboard and her unique and stunning artistic representation of the middle ages was enough to make me happy and cheer right up. She used her creative mind to think of what it needed, GLITTER, lots and lots of glitter. I had to continue watching to fulfill my infatuated mind with more of her creative genius, even Einstein could have learned from her. Just a tender delight of peppa, she can be bossy, tough, and a great role model. If peppa was real 9/11 wouldve never happend, she could be an almighty lord of all pigs alike, a great one.

It's obviously story-driven but... I don't really like the main character and I'm only barely entertained by the story. Besides choosing what direction to walk in, I don't feel like I have much choice in anything.

    I don't think I could recommend it to anyone.
