Review: Civilization: Beyond Earth


Last week was “Call of Duty: With a Double Jump.” This week is “Civilization V: With Aliens.”

Civilization: Beyond Earth is on Steam here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/65980/

Review: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Even after buying it on sale for $10 and having fell in love with the first game, I still had more fun this week playing King of Fighters and Counter-Strike instead.

Review: Wasteland 2

This game’s interface requires a level 6 patience skill check.

DISCLAIMER: One time at Dragon Con I had a soda with Chris Avellone and he said I was a cool dude for playing 250 hours of New Vegas.
