BattleFleet Gothic Armada : Not everyone’s cup of Tea, but a fine Cuppa.

Reminds me of the Church , just with more elves and less singing. The campaign in itself is well written with gorgeous painting style cutscenes and very solid voice acting, the overall campaign feels very religious, and while as a follower of Jesus Christ and therefore a “believer/ religious being” i didn’t find the story offensive, however those who despise religion may find it uncomfortable. That’s not to say the God Emperor of Warhammer 40k is anything like God the

Realm of the Wood Elves : Short and Sweet

I am a huge fan of Total War Series, and honestly combining Total War with the Warhammer universe is something a fantasy nerd like me really gets excited about, that being said while loving the title i had never even tried the Wold elves Race or Campaign despite owning both, this is my review of my first play though of the Wood Elf Campaign as Orion King of the Woods! How does it Feel? We All know its gonna look

Civilization 6 Gathering Storm : Every Last Drop

Civilization 6 has always been a title that while excellent didn’t feel fully complete, something was missing that i could never put my finger on, finally with gathering storm i know what that is.. a catchy hook! something to keep me playing beyond my planned time, something to keep me coming back, now don’t get me wrong Civilization 6 made some great changes to the series, wonders in Civilization 6 are my favorite and while combat is no better than

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition : Surprisingly Good for a console RTS

Microsoft was the king of RTS. When you look back at some of the Microsoft published RTS games of the late 90s and early 00’s you see a quality of gameplay that frankly isn’t seen much anymore, while there are new RTS and they all look much prettier than these golden era games, yet they all lack the soul that games produced in the 90s and early 00s had in abundance, from stories and heroes you actually cared about to

Two Point Hospital: Theme Hospital Lives again.

Same old Formula, same success. I loved the original Theme hospital, i bought it on both PsOne and PC (twice on pc even!), it was a game that defined my teen/early PC years and one which i had fond memories of in my thirties, when i had the chance to play Two Point hospital i was skeptical, surely nothing could be as fun as the nostalgia driven memories of Theme hospital?! Two Point hospital has captured it all, from the

JURASSIC WORLD EVOLUTION: Ant Farm with Teeth.

I Liked it, but I also didn’t. JURASSIC WORLD EVOLUTION barely qualifies as a game, in the same way banished and Anno barely qualify as games, while the latter adds at least a deep economic side,┬áJURASSIC WORLD EVOLUTION is left feeling overall like watching a massive Ant farm that occasionally pokes you to do something. What gameplay there was, is excellent, graphics and score are gorgeous and overall it’s a quality title with a wide array of tweaking possible, but

StarDrive 2 : Not Bad, just not needed.

StarDrive 2 fails in no major areas and while it doesn’t succeed in any either, its not a poor game and on paper is a very solid title, the problem is however, there simply isn’t a need for it to exist. The Nerdy Cousin. Galactic Civilizations 3 and Masters of Orion are vastly better games with larger fan bases, and better lore, it was an uphill battle for Stardrive to break into the genre and while its done reasonably well

Age of Empires 2 HD: Good, Bad and Ugly.

Age of Empires 2 is an eternal classic, there have rarely been or will ever be a game more important to the RTS genre as a whole, as a Series Age of Empires is one of the 3 founding pillars of RTS alongside Warcraft and StarCraft, the HD remaster is a much needed release to bring the timeless classic to modern Operating systems, the problem is while the game is mechanically sound, the DLC campaigns lack the magic of the

Rome Total War II : Aka Wa’men in Mah Games?!!!

Two ways to handle it. There are two ways to handle the recent controversy surrounding Rome Total War 2, one of which is to carefully evaluate both sides and see the merits in the augments presented by both sides.. the other is the truth. So pick the truth.. The only people whining about the 15% chance of a female leader/general are Incels, Manbabies and trolls, seriously review bombing a very solid title as there is a 15% chance of the

Eve Online : Spreadsheet Simulator 2018!

Standing the Test of time. Eve has lasted far longer than many would have suspected, apart from the moments of tense warfare the game is.. excessively dull, a simulation of the mundane, working the space equivalent of a 9-5 job busting rocks and then freighting them to market, however it is that mundane side that adds to the beauty of Eve, its not simply a game but a sci fi life simulation, you do not simply dart form one heroic

Endless Legend: Decent “Civ Style” Game.

Civ-Style.. the new Rogue-Lite Often when people launch a turn based strategy game it is described as being “like Civilization” the problem is most of the games to claim that kinda suck, Civilization is Civilization because of the quality it provides, however unlike most of the pretenders to the Civilization Throne, Endless Legend is actually very good, I would put it alongside vanilla Civilization 5. A World of Fantasy and Adventure. Endless Legend also brings a huge amount of lore

Nomad Fleet : Decent Dev, Disappointing Game

A Rag Tag Fugitive Game… The game on paper sounds solid, a Battlestar Galactica inspired, Homeworld-esque game with elements of Faster than Light, what could go wrong? Sadly many things, the combat is slow and tedious, the RNG takes alot of the fun from the game, the ship design is pretty good, and the graphics while clearly indie are good for an indie title, the main problem lies in the combat, its simply not fun, space combat should feel fast
