No, it's not different this time!

BioShock Infinite

Hey look! I can play and review a game without it taking forever. Here's a game that's (probably) the last in a series of not-RPGs. True to form, this is still not an RPG, but at least this one ends well.

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People

After spending hundreds of hours on open world RPGs, then their addons, and enjoying them, I wanted to play something very different: something light-hearted (and maybe a little shorter). You know, how games are supposed to be. I sorted through the hundreds of games that I have, mostly acquired through Humble Bundle, and quickly decided the next game(s) to play.

Fallout 4 Season Pass

During the last Christmas Steam sale, I picked up the Fallout 4 Season Pass. I had considered getting it about a year prior before the price got jacked up to $50. But I had not played the game yet, so per my DLC policy, I passed. The season pass was on sale for $30 (its original price), and that seems about right for the regular price.

AMD Ryzing

Has it been over 6 years since I got a new CPU? That's like getting the fastest Pentium 2 in 1998, and happily using it past 2005, as you wheeze at the kids with their fancy dual-cores. (cough Back in my day...) That's quite a gap! But the weirdest part is that I don't think I've been left that far behind.

Fallout 4

In a far future of the past, a man walks across the platform of a darkened auditorium. Having cleared the Veteran's Hall of its mutated inhabitants, this man decides to give the speech he was supposed to centuries ago. He steps behind the podium. "War. War never changes." The scars across this man's face tell that war is something he knows well. He helped liberate Anchorage, and watched the Great War erase his world with a mushroom cloud.

The Witcher 3 DLC

During Christmas, my app stores (Steam, GOG) have insane sales. These sales are so big that you'd be forgiven for thinking they were going out of business. I'm not sure if I've mentioned my DLC policy, but here it is: I only buy DLC on sale, and only for games I've played and liked. These were on sale, and so were the Fallout 4 ones. I got them all. Fallout 4 will be my next RPG reviewed.

Age of Empires: Gold

Even though winter is a mostly no show right now, I still stayed indoors. I got the paid DLC for Witcher 3. I decided to have another strategy break, before heading into more labryinthine open world role playing. I wanted to take a retro trip with this, so I flipped the switch (several times) on Twentieth Century.
