#Wargroove An incredibly cute and well-made reimagining of the old and formerly Nintendo-exclusive Advance Wars series that doesn’t drown you in complexity like many turn-based strategy games do
#GuildWars2 #PathofFire Solid expansion pack at a great price. Nice QOL changes &new Elite Specializations. Well-told story & Love the mobility offered by the mounts in the wonderfully large maps. Not much to encourage new players to join the franchise. If you play, this is well worth the money
#KingdomsandCastles Wonderful medieval SimCity. Great interface & cute graphics. Easy to pick up & play. A few issues with building placements, some buildings show a radius others don’t. Has plenty of development planned for the future. Disabling the clouds was the best thing I ever did
#TitanQuest #AnniversaryEdition Game looks better than ever, and despite its age, it’s still fun to play. The multiplayer option via Steam was great, but a couple of the matches were a little laggy. Nice to see achievements, but the controls feel really outdated.
#Homeworld #DesertsofKharak An atmosphere which, despite the loss of open space, evokes Homeworld perfectly. It is “bare bones” however & lacks gameplay depth as a result of this.
#HeartOfThorns Best MMO out there. The Gliding & the Guild Halls are amazing. Better storytelling, but main story glosses over some interesting aspects as you “fly through” it. Great time/loot sinks. Mastery system gives your account the feeling of levelling.
#TheRedSolstice The game can be overwhelming with a steep learning curve, but once you get into it , it is hard to put down, mainly due to nice environments, balanced mechanics & fast paced game-play
#pillarsofeternity One of the few and most likely the best game to come from a kickstarter campaign and possibility the only game this year that lives up to player expectations.
#DragonAgeOriginsUE offers an interesting story but the game has major problems, combat being a major issue along with the camera and controls.
#ExpeditionsConquistador superb yet obscure turn-based adventure, while it is a short game the excellent writing, setting, characters and choices make it a classic adventure.
