    I honestly feel like this series is giving me loads more respect for Alex's strategic thinking capabilities. It's a real joy to get to see him shine like this.

    I love the idea and format for this series. Especially thrilled with the polish having two producers brings to the table. Only slightly concerned about the time between episodes and rotating chair ke...

    Andromeda makes me sad. I wanted this to be something wonderful so badly, and it really does just seem sloppy, in both the ways that can be fixed (bugs, some animation issues) and ways that cannot (w...

    Vinny leaning in super close to Dan on that last "Feed my eyes" is maybe my favorite thing that happened all year.

    "Everything is something""That's true"What a zen quick-look this is. I'm excited for this game, and I usually loathe survival-type games, but this thing nails the atmosphere perfectly.

    Why I won't play The Witness.

    I am quite excited for the coming months in gaming. I've been itching to fall back into the wonderful XCOM trance, the one where you start playing clean-shaven and finally step away with stubble. I am...

    I am really into this game, both mechanically and conceptually, but it's hard to justify $15 for something that doesn't seem to have much meat on its bones.Hoping it comes up on a Steam sale.

    The multiplayer in this game reminds me of Age of Conan a bit. I never actually got into the clan battles too much in that game, but the concepts seem similar.
