The altered remains of the Xcom FPS

09williamsad | Aug. 25, 2013 | Review of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

This game started out as an FPS but has been turned into a "Tactical" TPS. The game has tactical elements but that usually comes down to move soldier here and use ability X. Playing the game in a run and gun Rambo style in not easy as your health can be depleted quickly if you are not careful and do not stick to cover. Your AI squad mates usually will go to where you tell them to and stay there but after a while they will follow you or move to another piece of cover which may or may not be in the aliens arc of fire. There is no research and engineering like in the TBS XCOM games. This is a somewhat tactical shooter with the XCOM IP attached.

An addition to the sandbox survival genre

09williamsad | Aug. 18, 2013 | Review of Darkout Cap

If you have played terraria or minecraft then the game should be familiar to you as it is the same principle. You start out with little and can create structures, weapons, armor and tools etc If you like the two games already mentioned then you will like this.

A superb piece of standalone content

09williamsad | Aug. 18, 2013 | Review of Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon

This is basically FC3 if it was made in the 90s in the style of what they thought the future would be like. Mechanics are almost identical to FC3 with a sci-fi reskin For the price it is a sci-fi FC3 with little filler and a crazy style.

Good god game

09williamsad | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of Reus

A god game in which you control four giants each with its own abilities that you use to alter the planet and make it habitable for the humans who you must help in order to aquire new abilities and upgrade existing ones.

Casual moba

09williamsad | Aug. 14, 2013 | Review of Awesomenauts

A 2D MOBA with a 90s saturday morning cartoon style. The entry level is much lower in comparison to games like LOL and DOTA 2 as the game has less of a focus on item builds and instead the skill is in platforming and aiming (if you are a ranged character).

Short review

09williamsad | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Defcon: Everybody Dies

A real time strategy focused around gaining points through destroying cities with nuclear missiles, adds a horror of war feel through its music and displaying the civilian death count when a city is hit, a truly unique game.
