Machines at Bore 3

Please...stick with StarCraft and the like. I can appreciate that someone put a lot of energy and effort into creating this game but it simply doesn't have the sophistication to captivate you for more then a few minutes. It's clunky, and the story feels awkward and contrived.

Endless Space - Emperor Edition
 – 

I want to like it more but...

I heart space opera-type games but this, like most, in the long run lacks the sophistication needed to engage anyone over the age of 13 for more then a few days of play.

The Walking Dead
 – 

C'mon...you know it's the future.

Episodic games have been hit and miss in the past but this one is a sure-fire hit. Yes, it has it's eye-rolling moments but overall Telltale deserves a real pat on the back for porting this nicely from the comic.

BioShock Infinite
 – 

It'll never be as good as the first time...

If you like ambigious endings and nonsensical plot twists, then this game is for you! Pretty to look at but ultimately soulless, B.I. is a sad last chapter in a supremely promising series.

Batman: Arkham City Game of the Year Edition
 – 

Hey, it's a cartoon and a game for children all wrapped up in a pretty package.

Puzzles, flying, and tight outfits...welcome to the comical world of Batman: Arkham City. Leave your brain at the door and you'll enjoy yourself more.

Spec Ops: The Line
 – 

Save your money for another shooter game.

Tired and unimaginative story line. I was bored within 10 minutes...

Crusader Kings II
 – 

Very compliacted from the get-go.

Be EXTREMELY willing to spend ALOT of time learning the in's and out's of this game before any real deep play can begin. The learning curve is VERY steep.

Borderlands 2
 – 

Nicely put-together in the beggining but over the long-haul? Dull.

A lot of shooting and wondering around without much skill or problem solving necessary. If that's your thing, enjoy!

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Ultimate Edition
 – 

Loved every minute of it.

I even enjoyed the "Boss" chapters that people groan about. Even when the game is weak, it's miles ahead of the competition.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
 – 

One of the best shooters out there.

Straight forward and exciting. Everything you expect from this great series.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 (Telltale Key)
 – 

Not sure yet...

Still waiting for chapter 2 and I'm not entirely sure if this one meets the standard set by season one. Time will tell...

Worthy buy!

Outstanding little game. Clever and quick, you'll be surprised and impressed. The price is perfect as well.

BioShock 2
 – 

Did you play the first one?

If so, avoid this one. Tired and recycled game play does this title no favours.

The Walking Dead: 400 Days
 – 

Not necessary.

A small taste and really not necessary for true walking dead enthusiasts.

Mafia II: Director's Cut
 – 

Didn't meet my expectations.

Sort of a rip off GTA but with out the great music/story/graphics. Avoid it.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
 – 

Meh.

You can't help but feel like the story line is a little cliched and over-wrought. Better titles out there for GTA enthusiasts.
