This War of Mine Review

this-war-of-mine-artwork-01-1

When I read through game reviews, or even write my own, I often times differ in relation to popular opinion. Its easy to form your opinion about the game, based on the individual look at the visuals, audio, game play and so on. This time, I took a few days after playing through this game, and I found myself in a weird state of mind, where I was simply not sure of what to say … Read More

Dragon Age : Inquisition

Prologue Before taking it upon myself to review the 3rd release in the Bioware’s Dragon Age series,  “Inquisition”, I made a decision that I will first finish the game. After a few days of gameplay I thought, with just a spark of hope burning inside of me, that the game would be more then just good. As the hours went by and the days passed that little spark had grown into a burning flame, which … Read More

Heroes of the Storm, a -very- playable Alpha

heroes-of-the-storm-logo-1920x1080

One would think that the MOBA genre is quite over saturated. You`ve got Dota, LoL, HoN, Smite and probably a dozen more similar games out there, competing in the same Arena. At least that is what I thought, and it seems I was wrong. Blizzard, one of the massive game development companies, known mostly for their Warcraft and Starcraft series, decided to push into the market, by bringing us “Heroes of the Storm”. So far the … Read More

Shadow of Mordor, An Unpopular Opinion

shadowofmordorgroot

For this review I feel that I must start off with a disclaimer due to the fact that my experience with this game differs so greatly from the great majority of reviews that have been publicized. I am not a fan of the combat mechanics in the Batman game nor was I overjoyed with everything from the Assassins Creed series so in that respect I am no fan of The Shadow of Mordor. This game … Read More

Rising Storm, One Game You Might Have Missed

rising-storm-beta

You know the feeling…  when a game comes out, it kind of has everything you want in it, the developers seem to be working on it hard, its innovative, outside of the box.. but, it just doesn’t quite work out, and then October comes and in swoop the smashing AAA titles to occupy your time – and, of course, empty your wallet. Well, that was kind of what happened between me and Red Orchestra 2: … Read More

Europa Universalis IV: Complex But Not Complicated.

Don’t panic. Running an entire country may seem overwhelming at first, but if Bush Jr. can do it, it can’t be that hard. With the fourth installment of the Europa Universalis series, released in 2013, allowing you to do exactly that – running a country all of your own –  the sheer wealth of options will seem insurmountable, but once you’re actually in the game, it’s not nearly as bad as it first sounds. Paradox … Read More

Endless Legend, A Closer Look

Endless Legend A Closer look There is a word that the good folks at Amplitude studios seem to like, and that word is “Endless”. From the creators of Endless Space, Dungeon of the Endless and most likely hardcore fans of Pink Floyd’s Endless River, comes the new frontier in 4x Strategy titles – Endless Legend. The latest installment of the endless 4x series takes us from exploring the vast areas of space in its predecessor and ventures … Read More
