Rebel Galaxy (PC)

Space Battle

The space genre was dead for many years.  Now, all of a sudden we’ve got Elite: Dangerous, and No Man’s Sky and, perhaps, Star Citizen.  That might be a weak line up for shooters, but it’s a renaissance for the space sim.  In to this comes Rebel Galaxy.   It’s sort of a cross between …

Mad Max

Mad Max is an open world action adventure game set in the wasteland world Max inhabits in the movies.  Though it has some locations and links to Fury Road, the story is not from any of the movies.  It’s another odyssey on Max’s journey to find peace.  Of course, it’s bleak, violent, cruel and post …

Instant Update: Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor (PC)

In short, I can’t stop playing.  Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is a fun, compelling game.  It thrusts you behind enemy lines with a wicked skill set that just keeps growing.  You constantly get more deadly.  While few of the parts are shiny and new, they’re put together masterfully.  I grabbed the PC version because …

Ah, Microsoft

UPDATE:  Microsoft has reversed itself again.  Tables will now import, but launch has been delayed to implement this.  Another win for gamers, but another unnecessary PR body blow for Microsoft.
