Supreme Commander 2: Win with Artillery then Nuke Yourself

Supreme Commander 2

Supreme Commander 2 is a cruel but kind RTS. It offers what most RTS games offer: Several complex factions with unique aspects to each, a campaign that requires you to make use of all available units, and a unique means of production. Because of the way I play these types of games, the campaign is […]

Tiberian Sun: Firestorm Burns Scrubs to Cinders

Tiberian Sun: Firestorm

Tiberian Sun: Firestorm is such a badass top-down RTS game. It was back in the crappy blocky pixelly 2.5D days, mixed with incredible bot difficulty even at the lowest levels. Without the ability to select spawning locations or limit superweapons, every match is a pulse-pounding Earth-shattering nuke fest. I’m serious. It’s that epic. One of […]

Diablo III, Another Peek

Diablo III

I’m glad to see that my first impression of Diablo III was a positive one. It’s followed through, and even though I haven’t been playing as much as I’d like to, I still think it’s a fantastic game. Plot, replayability, difficulty scaling, EXP escalation, and ability diversity all factor in to my positive opinion. I […]

DotA 2, a Step Up from Warcraft III

Defense of the Ancients 2

Dota 2’s been out (closed to open beta) a while now. I think it’s about time I shed some light on how it’s treated me. The predominant factor is the shift from the Warcraft III custom game editor engine to an engine designed specifically for the game. For nostalgia fans, this might be too dramatic […]

Worms Armageddon, The End Draws Nearer

Worms Armageddon

Worms Armageddon is probably the first game I’ve played with 100% destructible environments. It’s a 2D strategic survival game that revolves around worms with corny military weapons that need to blow everyone else up without dying themselves. That’s the basic principle, anyway, but when you factor in all the other possible causes of fatality, you […]

Diablo III, A Preliminary Perspective

Diablo III

A lot of you know about Diablo III. The hype for this game was and still is incredible. Ever since its midnight release on 5/15/2012, people have been spazzing out and acting like the servers being overloaded is an unusual thing. I myself have not, as I have only heard say of the prior installment, […]

Command and Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath, Tiberium Plus One

Command and Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath

Command and Conquer 3: Kane’s Wrath is definitely the single best RTS I’ve ever encountered, which is surprising considering it’s got EA’s logo slathered all across the front cover. Akin to Yuri’s Revenge, Kane’s Wrath is an expansion that gives a colossal boost to gameplay quality from the original. Command and Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars […]

Fat Princess Lets Them Eat Cake

Fat Princess

Feminists beware, you’re in for a scare. … No, I’m kidding. It’s a cute, whimsical game meant for multiplayer fun-time and boredom killing. It’s not some allegorical misogynist message saying that all women are fat and need to be saved by bearded midgets with squeaky voices. No, I’m not judging midgets with squeaky voices either. […]

Red Alert 3 Uprising (Otaku Edition)

Red Alert 3: Uprising

It’s got a psionic Japanese schoolgirl in it. How does that not justify the title? Anyways. I always felt as if Red Alert 3 was lacking regarding to units. There just weren’t as many as needed to make the game feel complete, or more importantly, balanced. The Empire of the Rising Sun didn’t even have […]

Red Alert II Yuri’s Revenge: The Brain Screw

Red Alert II: Yuri's Revenge

Turn back the clocks! Turn them back, and let’s see what Command and Conquer games there are to love. Today’s pick is Red Alert II Yuri’s Revenge, as you may have read in the title. I’m reviewing this one specifically because as far as I know, it is the only game that implements unit mind […]
