Awesome fun if you're into vehicle sims, and/or offroading!

TwelveGaugeSlug | July 23, 2014 | Review of SPINTIRES

I have to admit that im a sucker for sim type games. When I heard about "SpinTires" I got kind of excited. Then I found the demo, and I knew I wanted the full game. This game is set in the Russian wilderness where the "goal" is to haul loads of logs with your big heavy trucks, across the map to lumber yards. It has great physics, and the mud looks and reacts great. The trucks are pretty detailed and they did a good job giving them their own characteristics. Some are more powerful and can haul a load better, while others are better offroad in general, even though they are quite as powerful. I ended up spending many hours on the first map before I even completed it. I usually ended up messing around for fun. It did feel good beating that map though. The next one was a tad harder since there is a big river than splits the map. One of my trucks even got swept downstream. lol Still not sure if I am going to be able to winch it out. Lots of fun though. I personally highly recommend the game at full price. I paid the full price and honestly have no regrets. I cant say that about many others in my collection! Oh, and the devs promise many more updates!

Wonderful game, with slight shortfalls.

TwelveGaugeSlug | Dec. 9, 2013 | Review of Mafia II

I really enjoyed my time with Mafia II. Its been a couple of years since I played and beat this game, but I really enjoyed it. The graphics were about average for last gen (xbox 360) and the controls were a tad less than perfect, but once you got the feel they worked fine. I liked the story, it was pretty easy to keep up with and interesting to boot. It was open world, but there wasnt much to do besides the main quest IIRC. But I didnt even care to play any side quests because I enjoyed the main story so much. All in all a definite buy, especially if you can get it on sale.
