Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun
 – 

For Strategy Fans

I love strategy games! This one is no different. You're not managing huge armies or engaging in gigantic battles. Rather you're manaing a small cast of characters, each with their own story and motives. It's a fun and often perfect entry in a genre that all to often has some pretty big duds.

Worms Crazy Golf
 – 

A Fun Twist On a Classic Game!

I love the new twist and direction that the developers have taken this series in. It combines all the fun of the original Worms game with the strategy of a puzzle game and then wraps it all up in a nice little golf package. Definitely worth the $$.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited
 – 

Decent Usage of Original IP

It's a fun romp through the already established world, yet it seems to lose some of its charm in the MMO space. Nevertheless if you're looking for a decent MMORPG there's no subscription, unless you want it.

Satellite Reign
 – 

Classic Style, New Techniques

I love the Cyber Punk world that the game is set in. It evokes themes and tropes just like Shadowrun and Deus Ex, both games that I can never get enough of. If you're into strategy with a heavy dose of cyber warfare and cyber punk then this is the game for you!

Hack and Slash w/the Best of Them

If you are a fan of Diablo, or really any hack and slash style games, then this is a title for you. Endless progression and a fun story and characters!

Diluvion
 – 

Absolutely!

It's different! And I mean that in the best of ways! not many games have the charm and appeal that Diluvion has. It will go down as a classic.

System Shock 2

Classic!!

Good 'ol System Shock! Basically the godfather of Dishonored, Bioshock and may other modern games that we all know and love! Know your history and pick this one up!

Tales from the Borderlands (Telltale Key)
 – 

For Fans of the Genre

If you liked The Wolf Among Us you'll like this one too. Faster paced than recent Telltale entries like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us but the same great Telltale art and pedigree. A must have for any Telltale fan. Oh and it's simply laugh out loud funny!

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Grand Master Collection
 – 

Love It

I love it! Many of the things that I love about Starcraft are here as well with enough differences to allow it to breath its own air, so to speak. Great game worthy of you attention, especially if your're a strategy fan like myself

XCOM 2
 – 

How Sequels Should Be

It improves upon the many, already wonderful, things about Enemy Unknown! Smoother UI, check. Deeper customization and load outs, you got it! Oh and a story that ramps up the stakes from the last game! A must own!

4K?

Having never played a 4K strategy game before I found it a bit difficult to get into. However I eventually found it to be an enjoyable experience that was challenging and continues to show me new things!

Company of Heroes 2: Master Collection
 – 

WOW!

It's yet another fantastic entry in the strategy market. I can't say enough good things about the UI and the gameplay. Plus it gives a great feel for WW2. It's expansions and pay walls are a bit cumberson and annoying but it's nowhere near a large nough obstacle for a game worthy of you attention!

Hitman: Absolution - Elite Edition
 – 

Can't put it down!

There is something about this game that makes me play it over and over again. The gameplay is great. The story is great. Voice acting. Characterization. Humor. This game has it all and it's in its definitive edition. Go and pick it up and you won't be dissapointed.

The Darkness II
 – 

Being Bad Never Felt So Good.

Sure it's a bit on the short side when it comes to the campaign, but it feels like the game developers knew what they were doing. As if to say "if we make it longer it will drag, if we make it longer we lose something." That's the only reason I can think of to have such a short and great campaign. And that is certainly not a complaint at all in fact its a peice of praise.

People it is on sale for like 50% off right now. Do yourselves a favor or two, buy this game and you wont regret it. Ripping baddies apart with demon arms and finishing them off with guns is just… oh God it's just the best.

Great dark story.

Great gameplay.

Wonderful voice acting.

A must buy

The Wolf Among Us (Telltale Key)
 – 

Holy Cow! Great Story Telling

This is simply one of the best games this year! If you are into great stories and deep characters then this is the game for you.

I was never a fan of The Walking Dead game. This had nothing to do with the game itsel in terms of hardware or tech specs, or even gameplay, the premise simply didnt grab me the way The Wolf Among us has. It is gripping from the get go. Great/simple controls that don't take a lot of time to master.

The main character Bigby Wolf is memorable, and I found myself truly caring about which choices I made, and how those choices effected those around me. That is the most important aspect of a game like this, and it is nailed perfectly. 5/5 for sure!

Two Worlds II Game of the Year Edition
 – 

Mediocre but a good time killer.

Ok so I purchased this game during the Black Friday for $10. Worth the money at the time of purchase, though Idk if I oculd say the same thing if I had bought it at full price.

Story is just sort of ok. It's kind of hacked and choppy and is kind of hard to follow. It's also sort of trivial.

The gameplay is a little rough, once you get the hang of it, but the animations are stiff and awkward.

Great Mac Classic

This is another great game by Pangea software. If you are into old arcade games then I would highly recommend it. Simple addictive gameplay with a super quarky attitude and setting.

Bugdom 2
 – 

Just pick up and play.

A great Pangea arcade game. If you are looking for a quick pick up and play sort of game then this is the way to go. I purchased this game during Thanksgiving and had a blast just poking around in the Bugdom.

Nanosaur 2: Hatchling
 – 

Great Retro MAC Game

If you like retro games then look no further than the Pangea software titles. Nanosour 2 in particular is just loads of fun and you wont find another game where you get to fly around as a pterodactyl with a jetpack. Seriously go ahead and look I'll wait…. Did you find one? I thought not. HAHA no but seriously check this game out. Fun gameplay. Old school design and really fun premise.

You wont be sorry!
