Fun if...

viriel | Feb. 13, 2014 | Review of Space Engineers

Space Engineers is fun and innovative but that comes with a big IF...You will only get value from this program if you enjoy building and working with objects in space. Currently there are no quests or objectives, nothing like the Ender dragon. There is a multi-player and the creators are making improvements all the time and even without making any big projects I've logged over 14 hours so it is definitely worth the price. If you enjoy building, space ships and limited weapon use this game will be right up your alley. However if this and the low price tag aren't enough to draw you in, wait until the full game is released and hopefully all of the features will be worked in. If you can get a gmg code and have some extra coin then there's no reason not to buy Space Engineer's.

A bit disappointing but free

viriel | Jan. 9, 2014 | Review of Guild Wars 2: Heroic Edition (NA)

After enjoying the first Guild Wars and all of it's expansions I decided to give Guild Wars 2 a try on the advice of a friend. All of the promotional material seemed really promising so I went with the digital deluxe version. Years down the road from it's launch I can say I was overall disappointed with the game and my decision to get the deluxe edition, I feel it wasn't worth the extra money. I enjoyed it for awhile but it just sank into the normal MMO routines and any innovations it brought seemed lost in the pool of sameness. Sure the quest system was nice but only because it seemed to be a convenience, I never did mind having to goto the quest giver and having them be happy with what I'd done. The system in GW2 seems designed to make players a bit lazier and my rating reflects that.

Overall I'd say for only the cost of initial investment it may be worth your time, however I enjoyed Star Trek Online and TOR more than GW2. This may put me in a minority of people reviewing this game especially with TOR being crippling unless you pay but that is my opinion.
