    Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014

    Rated on March 01, 2014 by KingLim

    Well-designed video game that gives a nice refereshing touch of the famous card game to newbies and veterans alike!

    Since Spells of the Ancients back in 1997, this is the next best digital rendition of my lifetime hobby - Magic: The Gathering. There are many free fanmade shareware-type pc games that recreates the t...

    Mass Effect 3 (N7 Collector's Edition)

    Rated on March 01, 2014 by KingLim

    The epicness of the finale is satisfactory, but getting the desired ending is too tedious to earn.

    The finale of this trilogy is both well-paced and straightforward. In terms of well-paced, there are enough side quests from the main story missions to engage in such as exploring the universe with th...

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    Rated on December 19, 2013 by KingLim

    Addictive in both turn-based gameplay and "base building" management.

    XCOM is a beautiful game with a high production value that seems to serve as a tribute to its fans 20 years ago. Fully animated cut-scenes and a Hollywood-styled soundtrack gives the game a cinematic...

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

    Rated on December 17, 2013 by KingLim

    A vast improvement from Morrowind which makes Oblivion a satisfying RPG journey.

    A number of thoughtful improvements from Morrowind made Oblivion shine, which includes the much appreciated Fast Travel system, where the word "journey" doesn't sound so tiring now. Also, the quest jo...

    For Morrowind fans who can't get enough of it and fancy an environmental change as well.

    Bloodmoon is a welcome addition to Morrowind where it extends the free-form exploring feature unique to the game via a whole new medium-sized island to discover its caverns and tombs, this time in a s...

    One of the best improvements would be the Journal log categorising option, where you can clearly identify unfinished quests and not have to flip through your 200 page journal like crazy. That would be...

    Morrowind came out at a time when the Lord of the Rings trilogy was a hit, and it was one of the games that closest match the movie in an interactive standpoint, sometimes much better than the officia...

    Great potential, but flawed in some aspects of modern-day video games.

    For a non-fan of the original pen'n'paper game, I enjoyed Shadowrun Returns just for the rare cyberpunk cum RPG setting, which is like a homage to Blade Runner. The rare great cyberpunk RPGs I've play...

    Very short campaign, but engaging enough to get it from the bargain counter.

    Tales of Valor seems to favor and empathize with the plight of the German army, telling their human side of the story, where they prove that the tagline "Leave No Man Behind" doesn't just belong to th...

    "I promise I would help you with housework after this stage, dear!", and 10 hours just whizzed by.

    Batman: Arkham Asylum features slick-looking and easily executed combat that compares well with the image of Christian Bale's Dark Knight, though the Joker and the gang of villains available in this g...

    Nobody does sequels like the Mass Effect series, with unparalled depth and cause-n-effect schema.

    Mass Effect 2 carries on the depth and breadth of the first game and makes it even more challenging as I find that I tend to die more often without making good use of my squad abilities and flanking t...

    Rated on May 30, 2013 by KingLim

    Though quite a linear journey, the level design of Lonesome Road creates impressive scenery and great sniping battles!

    As far as the plot goes, the potential main antagonist is a boring talker, prompting impatient dialogue skips, but your wordless companion, EDE-E (isn't he waiting for you in Mojave?) provides joyous ...

    Interesting backstory, nice getaway from main campaign, but dull combat and environment.

    The first add-on provides some relief from the main quest in the original game, and also to add spice to the gameplay, you are stripped of all the good gear and weapons you've been hoarding in your in...
