Great twist on the tower defense genre.

JBourne | Aug. 6, 2013 | Review of Sanctum 2 - 4 Pack

What an incredibly unique game. Equal parts shooter and tower defense, melded into a one-of-a-kind experience that exercises both your mind and your trigger finger. Co-op is an absolute blast, offering some modes of pure cooperation and some of friendly, score-chasing competition. Visually, the game is heavily stylized without being gpu-intensive, inviting players with the rig to downsample to their heart's content. It can look stunning on good hardware, and very nice on weaker ones.

Great old-school action.

JBourne | July 13, 2013 | Review of Painkiller: Complete Pack Pre

If you're sick of ADS corridor shooters set in the Middle East, the Painkiller series is a terrific way to get some 90s style action with a bit more of a modern look than you'll get loading up Quake II. The story is silly, the speed is fast, and the gore abounds. In a climate where so many FPS's take themselves extremely seriously, Painkiller is refreshingly simple.
