Gryphon Knight Epic
When I first got Steam nobody told me that wired PS3 controllers are only compatible with a handful of Steam titles. I collected a pile of cool looking games in my Steam library before I realized this. So I finally got around to buying a new wired Xbox 360 controller.
Gryphon Knight Epic was the first game I decided to make a gameplay vid for, and do a article on. I’ve been eyeing up this game for months. I just can’t get into using a keyboard and mouse. I had my doubts that the 360 controller would work, but we have success.
GKE received a very positive rating in the Steam store. After much anticipation I now understand why. This game is freak’n amazing. After only playing the tutorial and 1 level I absolutely love it. Since I haven’t played the entire game, I’m not going to do a full review. If you watch my short gameplay video, then you will see why I highly recommend it.
If you hurry its 50% off at the time I’m making this post. Well worth $4.99
Above you will find my gameplay video, and below you will find some info from GKE’s store page on Steam, along with its link.

But during his quest he will face adversaries he never imagined he would, because… in reality all of them were once friends. What happened? These heroes would never go rogue… and all at once?
