Yesterday I bought both Spellforce: Breath of Winter/Order of Dawn and Spellforce 2: Shadow Wars. While Breath of Winter was just a solid RPG/RTS mix with an interesting story (well, so far), Shadow Wars was a shock. I'm wondering if someone snuck into my room at night and performed a secret upgrade, because that can't possibly be a product of my system!
Other than that, I've found out what's the funnest multiplayer game out there. It's Giants: Citizen Kabuto. Nothing beats running around as a huge mix of a monkey and an elephant and eating those tiny enemies of yours. Too bad you can't find anyone to play with these days. I'm happy LAN exists for those who want a total NoLife (TM) experience.
