    I love Heroes of the Storm. While the Mega Bundle deal isn't Dota's actually-free-to-play model, it's a third of the hero pool given away. Note that there are 4 different bundles, so you can pick...

    I also played a bit of the Dawn of War 3 beta. As I suspected, it's taken out most of what I liked about DoW2 multiplayer- the nuanced, tactical skirmish between small numbers of highly detailed...

    Infested Planet is a great suggestion. It's your small squad of space marines against hives spitting out endless tidal waves of bugs. This is a clever trick- there's action going on all the time, but...

    Metal Gear Rising is really special. It has such a lovely, nuanced combat system. If you think you feel badass now wait until your mastery of combat has increased. You feel powerful from the get-go,...

    Initial impressions of Cryptark are very good. It's a twin-stick shooter in which you enter procedurally generated derelict alien spacecraft in order to destroy a big brain, so that the ship shuts...

    I would choose Elves with those hateful Unicorns, but I respect you, so I'm thinking Undead. I like Ghosts and Bone Dragons especially. Maybe the Spider Cloak for fun. You only have to land one good...

    I disagree, Helio, speaking as another big fan of M&M: Clash of Heroes. The original Puzzle Quest is right up there with it as the top of the genre. All the different parts come together so nicely,...

    Heroes of the Storm says nuh uh to one map. That's a thing I'm still playing, so thread relevant and everything. It's awfully good. I mean, you can have one map, but it better be a really interesting...

    I was at PAX East yesterday, which I really enjoyed. I saw far too much stuff to take in and recall, but lots of it was good. I didn't play all that many things- here's the stuff that stuck.

    Dynasty Warriors 8 is a strange beast. From moment to moment it's a straightforward brawler, designed to let you plow through dozens of hapless fellows at a time in a satisfying, if brainless, way....

    Overwatch in the arcade, the mode where you get a random character every time you die. It's now the only way I play Overwatch. Meta? Don't care.

    If you want different, take a short session and play some Vampires. I've only started with them and the change is stark. No missile troops. You're dependent on line infantry, but skellies kind of...

    Speaking as a beginner myself, I've found the Empire a fine starting point. It may sound a tad dull to play a standard early Renaissance-ish force in a fantasy game, but you'll know how to fight with...

    Thank you! I remember seeing a streamer dragging formations around, and I've been wishing desperately I knew how they'd done it. This will make my micro so much easier.

    I'm curious about DoW 3, but it looks to be ditching much of what I loved about DoW 2, where unit counts were small but every unit was very detailed in their capabilities, and had these nuanced...

    You obviously sprint though areas you know to be safe. No time to waste. The other thing you can use it for is drawing guards away from their positions, either to sneak past or to set up an ambush,...

    Wargame (I like Airland Battle much better than European Escalation- dynamic campaigns and excellent aircraft implementation) is worth paying attention to.

    I enjoyed DoW 2 multiplayer from the get go, and all the way through. Your issue sounds like more of a matchmaking thing. Those are hard to avoid when the matchmaker hasn't had time to figure you...

    I'm with coldvvvave, Dawn of War 2 multiplayer is my favourite competitive RTS. It's colourful and exciting, with heaps of personality. It's action packed from minute 1, but still allows me to...

    You can spec the Shinobi into melee skills, if you pass up the stealth stuff. I think I'd like to go for the classics, and have Clint Eastwood as a Marksman taking all the pistol skills.

    Man, I backed Starsector forever ago. I think it even had a different name back then. I should see where it's gotten to.

    The Last Remnant goes beyond opaque and into willfully obtuse. I swear there's a good, interesting set of systems buried in there somewhere, but I'm not always sure I'm finding it.

    I understand that. It's inherent to the form. The more cards there are the bigger the possibility space and the higher the possible deck power.
