Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach Review

Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach provides deep gameplay with a simple recipe: easy-to-learn combat rules and units… lots and lots of unique units. Despite minor bugs and a lack of flair – no cutscenes, little narrative, not much in the way of physics – Sanctus Reach is a solid entry in the Warhammer franchise, and an excellent turn-based tactical game to boot.

Tyranny Review

With an efficient combat system, robust and far-reaching interactions with NPC’s, Tyranny is a game not to be missed. The myriad of choices you have and the different ways that the game can be experienced lend a high level of replayability. The well-defined yet flexible character creation system allows you to experiment on the fly an remain effective. Best of all is how developed the cultures of Terratus are and how visible the differences between them are.

Farabel Review

Farabel is a fair effort by FroGames. While the release was not completely successful conveying the uncommon angle it adopted, I’m not convinced the twist is doable. To the extent that it can be done, Farabel succeeded, though the gambit did not suffice of itself to excuse some of the weaknesses of the release. The experience is an interesting playthrough, though unlike the time travelling protagonists, you likely won’t travel back and spend the time to replay the story.

Powargrid Review

Powagrid succeeds in making you think you have a chance; it pulls you pack into missions even after you’ve been blown to smithereens more times than you care to count. This is what you want in a game: a sense of “I’m going to win this time; I think I’ve got it.”

Dungeon Rushers Interview

A Heroic-Parody tactical RPG combining dungeon crawler’s gameplay and turn-based fights. Dive in an off-beat universe, manage your team and craft mighty gear to equip them! Build your own dungeon by hiding traps and monsters in your galleries, then challenge other players to clean it!

Dungeon Rushers Review

Dungeon Rushers is a ton of fun to play. The tactical battles, the plundering of dungeons for loot galore and goofy dialogue all add to the pleasure of playing the game. In addition, the easy to use dungeon creation tools with a multiplayer ranking system mean that players will continue to create and modify an elaborate assortment of dungeons for you to explore, loot and plunder.

Demons Age Preview

If what I played was an actual final build of DA and exactly what we’re to expect, I’d still play it. The problems I encountered were present, but by no means game breaking, just thoroughly annoying. But in the event that it is, just know that your best bet is to start with a warrior. You can hire other classes at taverns once you’re a higher level.

I Am Setsuna Review

All in all, I am Setsuna will be a treat for any JRPG lover in today’s market, and is absolutely worth picking up even at the $40 price point. Great mechanics, fantastic artwork, and music that creates atmosphere rivaling even the great John Williams are all wrapped up in one nice and neat package.

Dead Age Early Access Review

Dead Age is a must have for any RPG fan who has always hoped for a post-apocalyptic theme replete with realistic graphics and an awe-inspiring soundtrack.

Victory and Glory: Napoleon Review

The battles will make you seriously strategize and the complete European coalition teaming up against you will make you sympathize a bit with the Emperor of Elba. This is definitely a thinking (wo)man’s title - no History books required. Vive la France!

Legends of Callasia Interview

Choose your faction. Choose your heroes. Choose your troops. Conquer lands, create kingdoms, and destroy your enemies. All the lands of Callasia are yours to dominate in this original simultaneous multiplayer strategy game.

Hitman GO: Definitive Edition Review

It may never get its due in the mainstream consciousness as a tremendously important title, but Hitman: GO The Definitive Edition deserves to be considered a classic, as it is perhaps the best thing to come from mobile gaming in the medium's history to date.

XCom 2 Review

Xcom 2 is a well designed, mechanically diverse tactics game that will hold your attention for many, many hours. The “just one more turn... “ feeling is strong with this one. When your soldiers are dying, and the aliens are closing in, steel yourself and remember – Suffer not the alien to live!
