Europa Universalis IV: Cradle of Civilization Icon
Can't but recommend
by Daniel S.6, Spain - Oct 9th 2018

If you're a big fan of EUIV this is a must have expansion. It introduces many new things that you can do in peace time and during war time.

It has a lot of small improvements that in my opinion make each nation unique on its own with a major focus on army professionalism where a new layer of strategy is added to the overall gameplay of conquering and warfare and also a lot of improvements to nations that follow Islam with new schools and faith modifiers depending on how religious/secular your ruler is.

Overall, a great addition. If you can't stop playing EUIV, this is a must have.

Jumpman Forever Icon
Love it!
by Froggie, USA - Oct 9th 2018

Played the original on the coleco flashback, happy to find one I can play on my Mac. Fun as ever, has some interesting improvements/modifications. Visuals are nice, has interesting menu music. Levels get complicated pretty quick. Overall a great game to pass the time.

1,000 Heads Among the Trees Icon
Not a Great Game
by Froggie, USA - Oct 9th 2018

Eh, not a very good game. Visuals are dated, audio seems random. Has some weird stuff in it. Those shadows are spooky! Played about an hour, but it never got interesting, just weird. Not my cup of tea; probably will shelf this one.

Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast Icon
Fun
by Froggie, USA - Oct 9th 2018

Fun game, though sometimes hard. Doesn't have native gamepad support, but using steam's key mapper, it can be done. Story's pretty interesting. Don't get to use a lightsaber til late in the game, but it's still fun to blast your way through the missions.

Rescue Team 8 Collector’s Edition Icon
Love this series, but I can't get past level 18...
by Lenora Young, USA - Oct 8th 2018

I was able to "work around" some of the lower level "bugs." But no matter what I do, I cannot get beyond level 18. And yes, I downloaded the "update." Too bad, because there's something soothing about playing these games.

Crusader Kings II: Jade Dragon Icon
Interesting DLC if you play on the far east
by João Costa, Portugal - Oct 7th 2018

THere are 3 interesting features in this DLC:
1) china - you can interact with it in the east part of the map; it is interesting trying to make sure china doesn't see you ripe for conquering at the same time trying to gain soemthing from thr relationship
2) The new artifacts and portraits increase the immersion a lot. When playing as a western catholic power and during your crusade you steal some sort of artifact it makes you wonder how far it has travveled; it makes the world feel more alive.
3) The new casus belli are very useful to the early- mid game

IMO it is a DLC worth buying if you play at the far east like tibet and india. If you only play with western powers this DLC does very little that will affect you.

Life is Strange: Before the Storm Deluxe Edition Icon
A Memorizing Game!
by Kellina G., USA - Oct 6th 2018

This memorable game really tugged at my heartstrings. It was undoubtedly an emotional gameplay since I knew the fate of Rachel Amber and Chloe Price. In the first game, Life is Strange, we didn't get to see the complex nature of Rachel's and Chloe's friendship at all. However, in this prequel, you begin to really understand how deep their friendship ran. Even though her unique personality can be self-involved at times, I am a true Rachel Amber fan! I'm so delighted the developers decided to showcase her wild personality and bond with Chloe in this prequel. The gameplay mimics the first Life is Strange game, however, there are no superpowers involved. Once you have made a decision, it cannot be undone. The storyline is rich and filled with twists that keep you in suspense. The characters are well developed and have great dialogue with one another. The soundtrack is amazing! The soundtrack compelled me to look on Spotify for certain songs. In total, it took me 13 hours to complete the entirety of the three episodes. With that said, this game will keep you busy for a while. I have yet to play the bonus episode, but I am sure I will love it. Overall, I appreciate this game more so than the first game. The bond between Chloe and Rachel really intrigued me and it was nice being able to stick with a decision without the pressure of using powers. This game is one of the few that achieves a nostalgic, melancholy, and wondrous feeling when playing.

SteamWorld Dig Icon
Wonderful game
by T'hain Esh Kelch, Denmark - Oct 6th 2018

If you are looking for a simple, yet somewhat challeging game, oosing with charm, then this is the one you go for.

You play a robot who arrives in a small town in a desert, looking for his uncle. You start digging below the city, and find all kinds of wonders! Armed with only a pickaxe, you have to work your way through minor puzzles, easy enemies, and dig to find gems and other treasures. Along the way you'll get various upgrades and other stuff.

Graphics are really well done, cute, bot not too cutesy, and really fits the world. It is oosing with charm! Gameplay is great, with an emphasis on platforming and minor puzzle solving. Game is quick to load, and easy to learn. Story is not the important part here, but it does the trick.

Highly recommended!

Shelter Icon
Beautiful, relaxing, but not much of a game
by T'hain Esh Kelch, Denmark - Oct 6th 2018

You play a badger mom, who has to take care of her 5 young, while moving them to a new shelter.
The game looks beautiful, and has a very relaxing setting, but you don't actually do much. You just keep moving from place to place, while picking up the occasional vegetable for the young, yipping at a fox, or duck from an eagle.

If you need to turn off your brain while doing something relaxing, this is your game. If you expect anything with more action than Tetris, this is not the one.

Cities: Skylines Snowfall Icon
Snowfall adds fun gameplay mode, but does not improve your existing cities
by Scott T.7, USA - Oct 3rd 2018

The snow mechanics adds a cool dimension to the game, but it seems a missed opportunity that the snow is not dynamic and instead you have to play on a perma-snow map.

Hearts of Iron IV: Cadet Edition Icon
Really in depth but learning curve is steep
by Scott T.7, USA - Oct 3rd 2018

I really enjoyed HOI4; however, the learning curve is very steep and you should expect 8-10 hours just learning the mechanics. Once you overcome this hump, then you are presented with endless gameplay where you can live out any WW2 fantasy you want.

Europa Universalis IV: Dharma Icon
Mixed bag, still quite fun
by Cristi P., Romania - Oct 3rd 2018

(Note that I've sunk 1000+ hours into EU4 so far, and have nearly all DLCs anyway, buying this one was a no-brainer)

If you've played the game for as long as I have, an update like this is very much welcome to keep things fresh and try to do another run, with a fresh new nation. In my case, I started as the Timurids, forming the Mughal Empire (which seem to have been massively buffed), and having a lot of fun with it (the Mughals' national ideas & culture assimilation bonuses are amazing).

The most welcome change is probably removing the minimum land requirements from estates, which made previous world conquests that much more tedious (though I believe this is included in the free patch that went with the release as well).

The new custom government reforms are also quite interesting, but it keeps getting harder to advance down this path the more you go through with your world conquest (as reform progress is tied to average autonomy). Going over the maximum number of states now gives you yearly corruption, which sounds kind of terrible, but realistically it's only an extra money sink to root out corruption. Makes the game mildly more challenging in certain scenarios. Not a fan of the rework to religious conversion (now only working in states), but I typically play with humanist ideas anyway, and I think they've rolled it back a notch in the newer 1.27 free patch.

Definitely read the full patch notes/development diaries if you're interested in the full details on what changes before you buy. This is probably the best time to buy the DLC too, as they supposedly fixed a bunch of the bugs introduced from 1.26 in 1.27. Maybe wait for a sale though, 10 dollars (or euros) feels like the sweet spot for the amount of content provided.

Total War: WARHAMMER Icon
Poor performance, but 10/10 game
by Grant Higgins, USA - Oct 2nd 2018

The campaign map runs at 2FPS, if that. It makes it almost unplayable, but the battles run just fine. Incredible game, but make sure your computer can run it

Europa Universalis IV: Guns, Drums and Steel Music Pack Icon
Huge boost of ingame music
by Kategorize, Sweden - Oct 2nd 2018

Heavy guitar riffs and bass drums helps to set the mood when you declare war on your sworn enemies.
