Shane's earliest memory of gaming was playing Contra on the original NES. Since then he has found a love for PC gaming, Pen and Paper Role playing, and Board games. His strongest passions are in the realms of fantasy and science fiction where he has developed countless worlds, stories, table top gaming systems, and an original board game. Outside of gaming, he'll be found dancing with crystals and talking with glowing nature spirits in his backyard.

Children of Zodiarcs pleases to no end and has you coming back for more, as you work to hone your deck, dice, and tactical style to best synergize your party. A must-have for tactical RPG enthusiasts, it wouldn’t be surprising if CoZ becomes a model for future tactical and card-based games over the next decade.

Albion Online, the brand new MMO PvP game, from the Berlin-based studio Sandbox Interactive, is portrayed as a sandbox MMO with a player-driven economy and robust PvP. However, it falls short on both its promise and entertainment value. With thousands of players online simultaneously, a huge landmass to explore, and plenty of room for Guild vs Guild combat, Albion Online has potential to be an outstanding experience — but this is yet to be the case.

1166 offers the equivalent of a B-movie horror in video game form, complete with all the quirks and mistakes that come with small budget productions. If you want a new take on side-scrolling storytelling that mixes Lovecraftian style occult horrors with surreal walks through pixel fields, you’ll feel right at home in 1166.

Make your way through hundreds of star systems as you fight to a find a successful life. Enemies are generated immediately after you leave a station. They will follow you across the solar system, but if you're having trouble, you may warp away. The AI isn't intelligent, and players shall quickly learn how to outmaneuver NPC tactics.

Clunky combat provides shallow gameplay and limited tactical variety, quests are few and repetitive, and progression brings nothing other than higher numbers on your screen. The world builder might be MyWorld’s saving grace, but in its current state, The Game Creators have yet to deliver on their basic premise. Keep an eye on as the game is in its early stage of Early Access, but the jury is still out.

Straimium Immortaly gives players yet another side-scrolling adventure that does all of the classical tropes you might expect, but with a new face, some funky twists, and some enhanced tactics toward making the most of a rogue-lite player's inclination toward difficulty.

Ortus Arena is a great concept, but it needs more meat and marketing to flesh out its appeal to a wider audience. Too heavily does it rely on its unpopulated online mode, with a single player mode that is too easily defeated once you've been trained.

Worth your money. If you enjoy turn-based strategy games, science-fiction fantasy, and twisting stories hinting on a Historical epoch spanning the stars that your grandparents dimly remember at the corner of their brains, then get your digits around this one. You won't regret it.

Rouge Contracts: Syndicate is a phenomenally well put together title, that will have you wondering where that dent in the wall came from. For 8 bucks, it provides a challenging and rewarding experience that frustrates as much as it entertains. In sum, if at a first glance this looks at all entertaining to you, know that it will be well worth the modest investment.

An amusing twist on an old style of game, SpiritSphere will annoy you to no end. If you can push through and beat a few levels, the amount of personal gratification will be astronomical. Good retro graphics and music, but too many bugs and doesn't feel finished.

PataNoir is strange, unusual, at times frustrating, but creates an amazing surreal landscape in such a short time. By using similes and metaphors to interact with the world, PataNoir delivers a fresh style of gameplay on an old classic of PC gaming.
