    Early game is best in the genre, but fades quickly.

    Elemental: Fallen Enchantress

    Early game is best in the genre, but fades quickly.

    Elemental: FE was a game I'd been waiting for since the initial Elemental release disaster last year-- one that I narrowly avoided thanks to the honesty of Stardock's own forumites (thank you, btw). As it turns out, Sta... Read Full Review

    Clunky but fun.

    The Walking Dead: Episode 5 - No Time Left

    Clunky but fun.

    I'm using this to review the entire first "season" (5 episodes) of The Walking Dead, as there doesn't seem to be a way to review the whole story under one header. While I'm still not a fan of chaptered games, or even co... Read Full Review

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    We need more of this type of game.

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown

    We need more of this type of game.

    This is the first game I can remember where gameplay video actually sold the game for me. Usually I either want a game, or not, regardless of what pre-release info comes out. But after seeing the turn-based tactical pl... Read Full Review

    Visually stunning, but convoluted and often frustrating.

    Alan Wake

    Visually stunning, but convoluted and often frustrating.

    I'm a little late to the party here as Alan Wake is already 2-years old, but since I'm a PC player, I've only recently been allowed to play this port. In addition, I waited for it to go on sale. As it turns out, that w... Read Full Review

    Does this ride really have to end?

    Mass Effect 3

    Does this ride really have to end?

    A tremendous undertaking, creating a whole new science fiction world... I was hooked when Mass Effect was first released-- so much so that I read the rather shallow novels written by Karpshyn to get a further glimpse in... Read Full Review

    The bar for RPGs has been raised.

    The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    The bar for RPGs has been raised.

    When I played CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 2 earlier this year I was relieved to learn that there were still gaming companies out there who remembered how to make a solid, story-driven, detailed single player role-playin... Read Full Review

    It's tough, but Witcher 2 reminds us of what an RPG should be.

    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings

    It's tough, but Witcher 2 reminds us of what an RPG should be.

    I enjoyed the Witcher, and considered it one of the better RPGs I'd played-- and I've been around since before the Balder's Gate days. The Witcher 2 takes everything good from early RPGs, adds some insanity and adult co... Read Full Review

    Fun game, but BioWare has sold out to EA.

    Dragon Age II

    Fun game, but BioWare has sold out to EA.

    I'm almost finished with DA2, but I've played enough to form some editorial opinions. Is it a fun game? Yeah it is, but it's not nearly as good as previous BioWare installments, and sadly, I expected this would be the ... Read Full Review

    Empire: Total Wreck  (Stay away until it's fixed)

    Empire: Total War

    Empire: Total Wreck (Stay away until it's fixed)

    Empire Total War has officially become the most frustrating, glitch-filled mess of a game release I've ever experienced, and at 35, I've been around for the early days of PC gaming. The Total War series has always been ... Read Full Review

    Empire: Total War (Special Forces Edition)

    Amazingly, in a time when PC RPGs seem like afterthoughts anymore, this game made my top-3 ever in the genre.

    The Witcher

    Amazingly, in a time when PC RPGs seem like afterthoughts anymore, this game made my top-3 ever in the genre.

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect from Witcher, though I admit the ads and intro movie released awhile ago really got me excited. What's more is that I had just finished NWN2: MOB, which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I was ... Read Full Review
