Little Inferno

One of the guys behind World Of Goo helped make Little Inferno. He was both the artist and music writer, and it shows well. So here's a game that won't warm you up for the winter.

Bioshock

I remember when Bioshock came out. People kept raving about how it was such a good role-playing game. After realizing that in a month I would never be able to use a mall gift card, I had money to burn. Having come off of an RPG that I rather liked, I figured I might check Bioshock out. What happened made Bioshock the most disappointing game of all time for me.

World of Goo

And now for a game that I've paid for about five times over, thanks to the Humble Indie Bundle. It's also one of the few games in one of them that I had played before those bundles became a thing.

Rise of Nations

Rise of Nations is a real time strategy game that I remember playing a lot at my friend's house 10 years ago. When I was picking up a few things on the last Steam sale, I decided to get it, even though it wasn't discounted. You see, I want Microsoft to know that it's OK to release it's games on Steam, and I want to encourage that sort of behavior. Can haz Halo Collection, plz?*
