Wonderful Turn-Base

Armed_Psycho | Jan. 12, 2014 | Review of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (NA)

As someone who has never played the previous XCOM games, I had no immediate need to buy this game and ended up picking this up as an extra during the Bioshock deal. This game is amazing. The game stresses thinking before moving as you cannot reset your character once they move. Weapons and armor are constantly being studied and upgraded due to the alien tech, leading to a constant stream of new toys for your squads. Finally, you can customize you troops to give them a personal feel. My teams often consist of political figures, movie and game characters, and, of course, Mr. T.

Now Your Thinking with Portals!

Armed_Psycho | Jan. 11, 2014 | Review of Portal

As a fan of unusual puzzle games I greatly enjoyed Portal. The gameplay alone is excellent; however, the dry, dark humor of the game really takes the cake. The puzzles utilize things such as inertia, problem solving, and gravity. The game itself, once released, was never intended to be so popular, spawning several memorable moments with your character, Chell, the ominous AI, GLADoS, and the lovable and always talkative, Companion Cube.

Not a Bad Way to be Introduced into the Series.

Armed_Psycho | Jan. 11, 2014 | Review of Hitman: Absolution

To start off, I have never played a Hitman game before, even though I have heard of the series. The game itself has several high points such as taking an enemy's clothes to disguise yourself, hiding the bodies so as to not alert other enemies, and planning and waiting to carefully put your plans into fluctuation. However some features, like the points system, turned me off of the game by putting restrictions on things such as being deducted points for killing or harming anyone but the target even if absolutely necessary. Most of the time this is canceled out by hiding the body, but only if you have the time to do so. Overall this is a pretty good game and has me interested in the rest of the series.

Excellent game

Armed_Psycho | July 9, 2013 | Review of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Nexway

As a fan of the elder scrolls series since Morrowind, I greatly enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of RPG's. The game map is very extensive and full of quests, loot, and even random encounters. While the main storyline itself won't win any rewards in my opinion, the gameplay will defiantly make up for it.Though I enjoyed this game, other long-time players of The Elder Scrolls series may disagree with the enjoyment of this game. I did feel as if the combat and leveling system were dumbed down abit, and Guilds are no longer specialized and can be completed by any type of character play style, but through all that I still would say Skyrim is an experience any person who enjoys RPG's shouldn't miss out on
