Waiting for Moodot – GalCiv 3 Reviewed

Galactic Civilizations 3

Galactic Civilizations 3

I’ve been looking for a worthy successor to Masters of Orion 2 for a long time. To me (and many others), that remains a pinnacle of space 4X game design that has, sadly, never been fully duplicated. And while I’d still be thrilled if a game came along that gave me the same feeling I had playing MOO2 back in the day, now I’m content if a game can at least bring something new to the genre. So, how does Galactic Civilizations 3 fare? Continue reading

Battlefield4-title

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a game review. Sorry about that.

It’s not that I haven’t been playing new games – I have. Earlier this year, after a flurry of game reviews, I applied for an E3 press pass – naively, not realizing how large the blog has to be in order to even be considered. Unsurprisingly, I was denied in short order. I’ll admit, it took quite a bit of wind out of my reviewing sails.

Right you are, Other Tom. Since it’s probably just you and me, and we’re both here, let’s get started.

Wait, what game is this again?
