XCOM 2 was one of my most anticipated games for this year; I loved the first remake and the sequel looked to take the game in lots of cool new directions.
I’ve played for most of the week and here’s my spoiler-free thoughts. I’ve just finished the game because I’m playing on Ironman… Continue reading “XCOM 2: Spoiler-Free Review”
I lucked out last weekend and got invited into the Overwatch stress test. Overwatch is on my “games that might make me giddy” list so I was willing to sacrifice myself to help stress-test Blizzard’s servers.

I played my first game of XenoShyft Onslaught a few weeks ago. The full release of the game was May 1st but I got a copy a bit early as I backed it on Kickstarter. It’s a co-op, card-building base-defense game; heroic / mercenary corporate troopers hold off waves
