|75 T8||Stellaris (2016) - 30 Jun 2023
"When I played this at launch, its potential was immediately evident but content was sparse and the game quickly became boring. Many years later, Paradox is still releasing DLCs and with all of them installed, it's one of the richest games out there for lovers of detailed 4X games. The best experience is still early game, where exploration and anomalies dominate. Huge galaxies become a bit of a grind from midgame onwards."
|50 T4||Age of Wonders 4 (2023) - 24 May 2023
"I played the first Age of Wonders way back when it came out, maybe the second, but never really got into the recent ones. 4 seemed very welcoming, but not as innovative as the original. It's now a mishmash of different light 4X and Heroes-style games, and though it kept me binge-playing for two days, the different faction-race combinations that seem malleable at first - give nothing more than small bonuses in a game that plays virtually the same every run."
|50 T4||Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) - 22 Nov 2022|
|70 T7||Stunts (1990) - 30 Oct 2022
"Mostly thanks to the track editor, there was never a racing game that hogged my time as much as Stunts. It was a truly great game for its time."
|50 T4||Phantasy Star II (1989) - 08 Oct 2022
"After the incredible first game, this was a real letdown."
|45 T3||Ys I: Ancient Ys Vanished (1987) - 06 Oct 2022
"Looked inviting at first, but it never really gets off the ground and I always just left it alone after a while. There were better RPGs on the Master System, namely Ultima 4 and the wonderful Phantasy Star."
|70 T7||Dark Sun: Shattered Lands (1993) - 06 Oct 2022
"This was quite early for an open-world isometric hardcore RPG in a unique setting and VGA graphics, and it was much better than that Al-Qadim game."
|60 T5||Carmageddon (1997) - 06 Oct 2022
"It was never my genre, but this one got to me. Before GTA if you wanted to run over pedestrians you had to play this. There was some degree of noise about it in the media, too."
|70 T7||Beneath a Steel Sky (1994) - 06 Oct 2022
"This was pretty good."
|30 T1||Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1985) - 06 Oct 2022
"Wasn't much fun."
