    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.

    There are no unit-producing buildings....

    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.


    Every year they take the cards from two years ago...

    Man, I love Hearthstone, but I have a hard time recommending it to new players. Without dumping quite a bit of money on card packs you'll struggle mightily in constructed play. Draft mode (Arena) is...

    I also caved during the sale and picked this up. I've been enjoying the early game as the Empire even though it's mostly conventional warfare (Emperor Sauron Franz notwithstanding). I just got hit by...

    I booted up XCOM 2 for the first time in a while, since it's showing up so often on end-of-year lists. It's nice to be reminded how good it is.

    I ventured into the multiplayer. Hrm. Well, you die fast. I didn't feel like I was acheiving a whole lot. It makes sense that it's a bit tricky. I have to decide if I want to make the effort not to...

    I finished the Titanfall 2 campaign, which I enjoyed quite a lot. It's clever in how restrained it is. Not too long, and no mechanic is overused beyond what your interest can support. Better to leave...

    Man, I wished I liked Invisible Inc. more. I love the design in principle, but it's more like a personality clash (it's not you, it's me). Because it's so utterly deterministic I hate to make errors,...

    I have the dumb morality problem. It's just hard for me to kill pixels when I technically don't have to, even though it seems silly. Logically, the penalty for killing a guard isn't all that high...

    Symmetra stuff looks good. Putting shields on everyone was never very compelling, so I won't miss it. Being able to set up my turrets in one go is lovely. Given how apt folks are to run in front of...

    I didn't find the 3 vs 3 that much fun. The 1 vs 1 seems neat the couple of times I played it- it necessitated some quick thinking (how does Mei beat another Mei?), but I imagine once you'd been...
