XCOM2. Fireaxis (2016) PlayStation 4

I’m a big fan of the XCOM series to the point that I hunted down XCOMlikes in the 2000s to sate my desire during the great Tactical Turn Based Strategy drought. But with the remakes I just sat back and

XCOM: Enemy Within. Fireaxis Games (2013) Xbox 360

Woop a reboot! I love a reboot… I think. If you’re confused by the title this is the full expansion DLC version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown (released 2012). It is the same game just with a few different soldiers, some

Total Carnage. Malibu Games/Black Pearl (1993) Super Nintendo

I kinda liked Super Smash TV, it was bloody difficulty, but if you were in the zone, and everything just “clicked” it was bloody fun and a hell of a laugh. So what would Acclaim do to follow that great

Dark Souls. From Software (2011) Xbox 360

Who likes smashing their face against a wall repeatedly? Because that is what happens in Dark Souls. It is a game where you headbutt a concrete wall so many times that you’ll eventually start to chip away at it. You

UFO: Aftermath. Altar Games (2003) PC

UFO: Aftermath started off  “The Dreamland Chronicles: Freedom Ridge” by Mythos Games, but was eventually abandoned. It is an homage to X-Com, and is partly based on the abandoned X-Com: Genesis. It is *NOT* officially related to UFO: Enemy Unknown (X-Com:

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Bioware (2003) XBOX

There are games that come along every now and then that have blown my socks off. Silent Hill 2 is one of them, Final Fantasy VI is another. With that, Knights of the Old Republic is firmly in the socks blown asunder camp. I
