This is, by far, my favorite action game on the PC. The game's magic system and its use in combat is fun. The difference in approach when you're playing the murderous Corvo versus pure stealth makes it high replayable. If only the game's story and pacing were better, it could have easily been among the best of all time.

Diablo III

I played Diablo 3 when it was first released. It was okay and after finishing the game, I ditched it.

A few weeks ago, Eternal Collection was on sale and a friend gave me a copy of it. Playing it now, the game does feel more fun. The mechanics are largely the same. This time, though, it feels more like Lord of Destruction. Not as dark but closer to how I remember the LoD.

There are several things to consider. Even with the updates, it's still an old game so it doesn't look as good as newer ARPGs.The campaign is just the 'tutorial mode', the real fun starts after you finish it. To get the full experience, buy the Eternal Collection.

If you're planning to get it. I don't recommend buying at full price; wait until it goes on sale.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord

Bannerlord is very much an Early Access game. It would be an understatement to say that it requires a lot of polishing. I've had trouble playing it having been plagued with memory errors and the occasional freezes. Despite all this, when it works, it really is a fun game. Combat and weapon is weird but may be the best among comparable games. Troop control works but the lack of an in-depth tutorial makes it confusing at first few tries. Who is this for? Those who love knights, medieval combat, strategy, and cavalry charges. Who is it not for? Those who are looking for a polished game. It's still on Early Access, after all. *Note: I will continue to update this review with the game's progress.

SWAT 4

Among my circle of friends, I was the only one playing SWAT 4. This was understandable considering that in 2005, Guild Wars, Call of Duty 2, Civ IV, AoE III, and more were released. What SWAT 4 offered something unique that you don't find in other games at the time: 'realism' and a slower pacing. It required planning and proper execution as mistakes often lead to a failed mission. Now that we're in the age of remasters/sequels and repetitive shooters, it's one of the few games that I hope gets a sequel.

This is a good time-waster. Battle sessions are short and there's enough progression to keep you engaged. Voxel-based visuals look good on small screen; it may be better on tablet. It comes in-app purchases. The items offered are almost pay-to-win. Ive seen +armor and +damage.. but (i think) you can grind your way to getting them. Note: I'll continue to update this review as I play more of the game.

Guild Wars 2 is a game best played with friends. I spent hundreds of hours exploring its expansive area, grinding for gears, and completing events. It was fun... then the number of active players slowly decreased. I still play it from time-to-time but it just wasn't able to keep its playerbase. Too bad. With news of layoffs at ANet and the recent departure of Mike O'Brien, the chances of GW2 ever getting back the numbers is slim. Too bad.

CIv 6 without the DLCs Rise & Fall and Gathering Storm isn't worth getting. It's playable but it's lacking in many aspects. So if you plan on getting this, be sure to include the DLC packs. Otherwise, get Civ 5 instead.

It's been cited as one of the more interesting shooters in the last few years. Indeed it is. The setting, the chaos, and the mystery are among its best qualities. I played more than 20 hours of it. Unfortunately, I had to deal with a lot of crashes that started after a significant game update. It started failing mid-game, at first, and after a few more tries, the game became unplayable. All-in-all, the game may be good but the technical issues I encountered with it kept me from enjoying the whole of it. (Still waiting for another update, if it ever comes.)

It's a simple, straightforward management game. Once you figure out the formula to successful releases, you can just reuse it. I wish there were random events that affect the gaming market. That would have increased the game's replayability.

This is part Civilization, part Banished. The Civilization part of it is the technology progression, the Banished is the rest of its gameplay. It's a bit crude, the UI needs polishing, the guide is not that clear, among many things. With succeeding updates, I have no doubt that it will continue to improve. Give it a try if you enjoy these types of games, you won't regret it. But if you're looking for a more polished management game, better wait or look somewhere else.

I spent about 30 hours playing Banished. It's one of those games that you play when you want to relax. It's not really that hard to get into but can be quite challenging as your village grows. If you're looking for a game with some kind of a tech tree, try Dawn of Man.

I haven't played the first game but you don't have to. Divinity: Original Sin II is one amazing RPG. It's a revival of the classic RPGs I used to play when I was younger. There are nuances to skills and fighting styles and the amount of content is just staggering. Getting the hang of it (learning curve) is a bit steep but you'll be rewarded when you reach the top.

The game itself is a lot of fun especially now with the "Turbo" mode. It's the community, however, that's a bit hit-and-miss. One game you're playing with a good team, the next you get dumped into a pile of garbage.
