Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel: Claptastic Voyage and Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2
 – 

A hilarious new expansion!

Borderlands is iconically funny, but I have never laughed so much through game humor in my entire life. Play this expansion, I cannot begin to tell you how much fun I had!

BioShock Infinite: Clash in the Clouds
 – 

REDICULOUSLY FUN!

My only complaint is the battles can be really hard, even on easy, which just turns into a rage fest instead of a viable challenge. Other than that, the DLC is amazing, focusing more on the game's innovative combat mechanics. If you prefer Bioshock for the story, then this may be a hit or miss, but if you like the gameplay just as much as the story, BUY. it is more than worth it. The only reason I spared the extra star is progression is VERY unforgiving. You will have to be patient.

The Talos Principle
 – 

Innovative Mechanics and an amazing plot line!

I am quickly falling in love. This game has original puzzles, an amazingly insightful story, and level design that is second to none! But this game. The lore, beauty, and puzzles will blow you away!

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
 – 

Fantastic!

Great graphics, amazing gameplay, intriguing story... I love it! This game is an amazing follow up to the already hilarious and fun borderlands 2. After Tales From the Borderlands, I can't wait for a borderlands 3! My only complaint: WAAAYYYY too expensive. I got this on sale for the perfect price, but other then that: near perfect!

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
 – 

Grossly BAD performance

This game LAGS. Serious LAG. Yes, I do not meet minimum requirements for graphics, but game like hitman: absolution have run fairly well on my computer, whereas this game, with the same grphics capability, does not. Wait for a debug, or don't buy. I got it on sale, so I don't feel wronged, but 20 dollars for a game with poor performance is NOT WORTH IT.

Update: Upon lowering the graphics settings to the VERY LOWEST, the game does run at a tolerable rate, and it is extremely fun to play. Performance still stutters now and then. The game itself is VERY good, but the poor performance at higher settings still loose the extra two stars for me.

Shelter 2: Mountains
 – 

A gorgeous expansion

A visually stunning add-on to a fantastic game! You won't have regrets! Shelter 2 already shows emotion and beauty in a small little game about the circle of life, and the Mountains only emphasize one of the best indie games I've ever seen. A little expensive, so I would buy on sale, but other then that, enjoy.

The Wolf Among Us (Telltale Key)
 – 

A splash of color, and an air of mystery

Telltale makes great games, that's the long and short of it. This game is easily one of their best, right up with The Walking Dead Season 1 and Tales From the Borderlands. The flashy colorized art style, along with the flash of mystery has given me amazing first impressions. The lore is a little dark, with prostitution, ect. Other than that, I say buy, the story is fantastic!

Borderlands 2: Game of the Year Edition
 – 

Funny, fun, all the best of it!

The combat and art style of the Borderlands games have always delivered, and this is no different. With the most amazing price, the game cannot be much better. The gameplay, graphics, humor, even the story are all perfectly paced and well designed. Support 2k, they really have a gem on their hands.

Borderlands 2 Complete Edition
 – 

Flawless

If you like really long, Level-Up, open world-esque games, then this is for you. Thousands of guns, thousands of power-ups, hundreds of upgrades, you just can't stop having fun. On top of all that, there is excellent humor and a surprisingly coherent story.

Also, all of this is about 50+ dollars on steam. Fantastic bargain.

Californium
 – 

Unique, but...

I am loving the art style in this game. The exposition is a bit corny and agenda-based, but I would still consider it a good buy. Be warned, though: the game lags on my 13-inch Macbook Air, DESPITE meeting minimal requirements. This seems to happen far too often with indie games, and it is kind of annoying, since Bioshock infinite, a visually demanding AAA game, runs better than Californium, an indie game.

In short, interesting mechanics and an interesting story. If you must see for yourself, I recomend waiting for a sale.

Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders
 – 

Not really a masterpeice...

I am a HUGE fan of Agatha Christie's books and I was more than excited when I heard this game was out. I was expecting a mix of Grim Fandango and Blues and Bullets: mystery, humor, the occational thrilling action sequence, with a good twist at the end. Unfortunately, bad first impressions, paired with stiff controls and bad voice acting just turned me off. The story, I will say, is good, but not enough to compensate.

If you have to see for yourself, wait for a sale. This game isn't bed, but not worth the thirty dollars.

Shelter 2
 – 

A wonderful journey!

I, Personally, love this game. Might and Delight fully delivered, evolving the sequel of Shelter into one of the best playable visual experiences I have ever seen. Shelter 1 was about the circle of life, and how you have very little control in that circle. Shelter 2 is very free, but with your freedom comes consiquences. My first play through was so emotional. Like every game, I thought I could cheat the system and just mess around, and I didn't get away with it.

In short, play this game, or at least give it a chance. I can almost ensure you will have no regrets!

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 2
 – 

Riveting experience

This is the pinacle of gaming. Everything is brought full circle. Rapture, columbia. You'll see if you play it, and I URGE all of you to play it! Combat is turned on it's head when you play as Elizabeth, relying on stealth and lock picking instead of mad hellfire from above. The end is bittersweet but all in all PERFECT! if you loved Infinite, you will LOVE Burial at Sea. Irrational could've just released it as a direct and wholly seperate sequel to infinite!

I would recommend it any day!

BioShock Infinite
 – 

Where do I begin?

This game is amazing. The story I cannot say much about to avoid spoilers, but I CAN say it is amazing. I will instead focus on gameplay.

A good game has a great story, intuitive controls, and the ability to replay. This game delivers all of that. The story is excellent, the visuals are fantastic, the controls are a dream, combat is the most FUN experience I've ever had, using vigors and bullets to my advantage, and since you can only carry two weapons, I have to experience all the others in a future replay, adding, guess what, REPLAY ABILITY!

Buy the game. I got it on sale, but the $30 is worth every penny, even the DLC. You will have NO regrets!

realMyst: Masterpiece Edition
 – 

Not much to say...

Maybe it's my computer, but this game LAGS. It's perfect is almost everything else. Visuals are a real plus, but the lag just makes the game not fun to play.

When a debugging update make Myst run better, play it, it's amazing. For now, don't get it, not worth it.

Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale Key)
 – 

Halarious, Fun, and Emotional

Where do I start? Telltale has been notorious for revolutionizing gaming with choice and consequence. All their games are GOOD, but few could be considered EXCELLENT. This game is EXCELLENT. Perfect combinations of emotion and humor, superb characters, the perfect package. Even if you haven't played Borderlands games, or even hate the games, you will probably have a wonderful time with this!

Best intros to a game I've ever seen. Worth the money! I say play it, it won't disappoint!

BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea - Episode 1
 – 

Great with both episodes!

This game is nostalgic, thrilling, and the story is amazing! Paired with excellent controls, the game is near perfect! My only complaint is that you need both episodes for the full experience.

It is worth every penny! Any player of Infinite will love this!

The Long Dark
 – 

Amazing, but wait for more updates.

This game is an 11/10 for visuals. It's the most beautiful game I've ever seen yet! It does, however, lag on my 2013 13'' macbook air, despite meeting minimum requirements.

Wait for a debugging update for better performance. When that happens, PLAY AWAY! With smoother performance, this game will be perfect.

Kingdom: New Lands
 – 

A little hard, but extremely rewarding!

For my first few tries, I made some mistakes and I had to start over, but all it all the game is excellent. Well balanced, satisfying, beautiful, chalenging, and when I lost it wasn't the fault of the game. My only request is that they add a feature where you can send archers and royal guards to certain locations. Other than that, the game is fantastic.
