Stellaris Icon
Quite Good
by b00p, USA - Nov 12th 2018

A great mixture of Crusader Kings and UEIV with some streamlining to make it more palatable for durps like me who just can't deal with CKII's style (or lack thereof.) Not perfect, and DLC policy notwithstanding, this is a unique and great space empire sandbox and well worth your time if you're into this sort of thing. Be prepared to shell out for the DLC tho.

Tales from the Borderlands Icon
The Best Telltale Game
by b00p, USA - Nov 12th 2018

Not a Steam Key for some reason. That said, the game itself is the tip top of fun and humor. As someone who's not a fan of Borderlands OR Telltale games, I enjoyed the heck out of it. It's not perfect and the middle bit isn't as strong as the opening and closing acts, but overall, it's the best thing Telltale and Borderlands have produced.

Titan Souls Icon
Good Boss Rush
by b00p, USA - Nov 12th 2018

Good boss rush with great music and aesthetics marred by having no keyboard and mouse support for some reason.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 Icon
Captivating in a strange way
by b00p, USA - Nov 12th 2018

For some reason I keep playing this game. It should be incredibly boring but it manages to do the 'euro sim' thing in a way that is captivating despite looking a bit scruffy. You'll want DLC, and there's a lot of it, but the main expansions of the map are the good ones and usually pretty cheap on a sale. And worth it.

Stellaris: Utopia Icon
The essential DLC
by b00p, USA - Nov 12th 2018

Currently the essential DLC for Stellaris and the first one you should be getting if you're going to give the game a shot.

Pillars of Eternity Icon
Great RPG by any measure
by b00p, USA - Apr 9th 2017

Having bounced off the original Infinity Engine games despite best attempts, and thus having no real nostalgia to go off of, not to mention my general ambivalence towards D&D style fantasy in general, I stayed away from Pillars for a long while, even though I love a big, chunky RPG from time to time and have a real appreciation for Obsidian's brand of complex and thoughtful storytelling.

That was a mistake! It's quite great! The characters and setting, though not super-exotic, is strong and weird enough to be interesting. Not finding it overly-wordy compared to what I had heard, just the right amount of reading. More voice acting than I expected, and for the most part, pretty strong, especially when compared to something like Wasteland 2 or even Skyrim. The environments are quite pretty despite being 2D. I find myself enjoying real-time with pause combat for the first time ever, inexplicably. Lots of options and ways to play in terms of perks, skills, items, and spells. Plenty of combat and world-building. In other words: A big, meaty RPG, well worth your time.

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun Icon
Sneaked into my heart
by b00p, USA - Jan 26th 2017

Surprise underrated end-of-2016 gem. Who knew isometric stealth could work so well? Beautiful, lush environments, large maps with lots of possibilities, unusually excellent characters and voice acting, virtually bug free launch, which is, let's face it, almost unheard of this year. Check out the substantial demo (I did) if you aren't sure. Just great.
