Mindblowing funOdedFire | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Bioshock Infinite
Don't believe all the negative-hype you hear about this game. Sure, it's not System Shock, nor does it let you explore a gigantic city, and the combat is a bit lackluster, but it's pure fun, and the twists and turns are fantastic.
Explore a floating city, see the workers as they rise up against their racist bosses, take a part in a revolution, discover the story of the girl in the tower - this is more than a fantastic game - it's a fantastic experience.
Fun, if a little rough around the edges.OdedFire | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Reus
This game lets you terraform a planet using four giants, each with their own powers. Sessions are brief - between 15 minutes and two hours - and at the end of every session you are awarded achievements for your actions and new powers and abilities are unlocked for your giants.
While gameplay can get a bit repetitive and the tutorials don't actually explain some concepts like Awe, Flora and Danger, this game is a timesink for at least 10-20 hours of fun. Buy it if you feel like messing around on a planet, you won't be disappointed.
Complex but excelentOdedFire | Aug. 12, 2013 | Review of Victoria II
Vicky 2 was a surprising hit for Paradox. Based on the less than successful Victoria: And Empire Under the Sun, Paradox managed to retool their Grand Strategy title into a worthy brother to Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings and Hearts of Iron. A grand strategy title, this game will see you lead a nation from the aftermath of the Napoleonic wars until the 1930s, through wars, industrialization, colonization and shrewd diplomacy. This isn't the easiest of titles, and the lackluster tutorials don't help much, but if you can find the time to sit down and learn the mechanics, this game is fantastic.
Just be sure to grab the expansions as well, the game isn't complete without them.
Countless hours of plotting, warfare and diplomacyOdedFire | Aug. 7, 2013 | Review of Crusader Kings II
For all of you out there looking for the Game of Thrones experiance, look no further. Crusader Kings II captures the same spirit of plotting, shrewd diplomacy and brutal warfare in a historically-accurate medieval setting.
The game gets even better with each and every patch. with most content released for free independently from the DLC, which is also totally worth it. If you ever wanted to kill your grandchildren so your inbred idiot savant son can ascend to the throne of France, this is your game.
