Give it a chanceminigand | Aug. 19, 2013 | Review of LA Noire The Complete Edition
I have seen this game mocked in certain circles for being repetitive, boring, and uninteresting, but I have to say that I disagree with that assessment. Rockstar has put out a game that is innovative in every sense of the word. It is innovative in its story driven rather than a violence driven approach. It is innovative in the attention that it pays to character development. And it is innovative in the sense that it includes over 20 cases each one with more detail than the last. As soon as I finish a case, I am always eager to go back and replay it to see if I can get more question right and find more clues without the help of intuition. Buy this game, you will not regret it.
Don't Get Even, Get MADminigand | Aug. 19, 2013 | Review of Defcon: Everybody Dies
This game is perhaps one of the best strategy games I have played recently. The main thing that makes this game so rewarding is that it has done away with all of the complexities of other strategy games and left just the strategic core. Personally, I would recommend this game to anyone who is ready to take a break from "higher profile" title like Starcraft or a Total War game. In general, Introversion has mastered the strategy game, and you will find that Defcon is no exception.
