AGE OF CONAN: HYBORIAN ADVENTURES VERDICT
My time with Hyboria is likely to continue right up until the end of my trail period but I’m not so sure I’d be willing to start coughing up the subscription charge until I see some real meaty updates from Funcom addressing the woes that add to King Conan’s troubled brow.

TOP GAME MOMENT
Slaying the stuck-up sorcerer boss Remuses in his Black Castle sanctuary with a band of fellow adventurers, while simultaneously trying to scoff down a pizza. Good times!
