3.5 / 10.0 - Overgrowth
Nov 10, 2017

Overgrowth might be a good game if it weren't under a layer of glitches, vacant characters, and ancient mechanics. It would be a good indie game if it traveled back in time to 2005. Unfortunately, it's just a glorified tech demo instead.

8.5 / 10.0 - X-Morph: Defense
Nov 4, 2017

X-Morph: Defense is what happens when you design and implement a modern arcade twin-stick shooter mixed with a tower defense from the ground up. The cheesy style of dialogue and story is mixed with a feeling of masterful power as you navigate a beautifully constructed game world. This is a highly recommended experience.

5 / 10.0 - Project Remedium
Oct 30, 2017

A solid vision is spoiled by shaky implementation. The visual and art team deserves awards, but the confusing interface, bad translations, missing parts, and bad bugs make this feel like an early access game. Fun weapons, few enemies, and a huge number of "side mission" style quests make the otherwise beautiful world feel like empty filler.

War of the Chosen adds a significant amount of content to XCOM 2, enough to make it feel like a whole new game. It's exciting to see your soldiers grow and fight new enemies that are simultaneously growing and fighting your soldiers. New enemies, new game mechanics, new troops, and new ways of making sure the aliens get off your planet.

8 / 10.0 - Tooth and Tail
Sep 23, 2017

Tooth and Tail rebuilds the RTS genre with an easily accessible console-friendly design that retains the elements that make RTSs so much fun. Fast-paced gameplay, random maps, and a dark, humorous tale told not just in the campaign, but in the design of each unit. This is a step in the right direction over other bite-sized RTS games.

4.5 / 10.0 - Oriental Empires
Sep 16, 2017

Oriental Empires lacks in content on all levels and thus removes the player's ability to experience and explore an interesting time period. If you enjoy the 4x genre, it's a possible interest, but it's otherwise uninspired.

7.5 / 10.0 - Endless Space 2
Aug 16, 2017

Endless Space 2 is a standard 4X that happens to contain some of the most artfully constructed lore and environment we've seen in years. Marred by strange design choices and often cookie cutter empire management, Endless Space 2 will nonetheless leave you thinking about the various characters you meet for a long time.

A solid chapter in Dawn of War, the inclusion of minimal MOBA elements only serves to enrich multiplayer gameplay and deepen the strategy. Easy to learn, difficult to master, Dawn of War III is fun without sacrificing the tone of the game world, though maybe breaking a little of the lore. Barring some minor, strange aesthetic choices, this is a powerful foundation for the future of Dawn of War.

5 / 10.0 - Dawn of Andromeda
May 8, 2017

The game has plenty of potential, but the beautiful exterior hides a lacking, simple foundation cobbled together from other, superior games. One or two unique systems don't make up for pale echoes of so many others.

7.5 / 10.0 - Diluvion
May 5, 2017

An excellent overall experience in storytelling through atmospheric art and minor characters marred by the awful interface and control system. The majesty of discovering an amazing new landmark is marred by having to replay that section since you have no control over your ability to save the game.
