Europa Universalis IV Icon
Recommendation with a caveat
by JRespaldiza, USA - Apr 28th 2017

I do recommend buying EUIV to anyone who enjoys grand strategy games. However, unlike several of Paradox's other grand strategy games, EUIV is not a game that merely benefits from the released DLC, it nearly requires them. There are a number of gameplay innovations in the DLC that make it a much more enjoyable experience, and the base game - while still enjoyable - is poorer without them.

Beat Cop Icon
Classic style 80s tv show point and click adventure
by Ishee, Germany - Apr 27th 2017

A wonderful game with brilliant adult humour, a novel execution, and a difficulty level that's not too challenging because the game focuses on the fun and storytelling rather than the challenge. It's one of those games where instead of striving to achieve goals, it feels more like the game is leading you on a merry tour of ribald hilarity, dirty dealings and shenanigans.

Mini Metro Icon
KISS still works with games
by JRespaldiza, USA - Apr 26th 2017

Great music, a simple concept that can easily be grasped by anyone who has played games before, and great depth without too much complexity. This is the kind of game that you can play sitting and relaxing while listening to the soothing soundtrack or concentrating and trying to beat a previous high score. A gem.

Galactic Civilization Building At It's Finest
by Nathan M.2, Canada - Apr 26th 2017

Very enjoyable game with tonnes of variance. There is so much going on that I am confident I will get a tonne of replay value out of it.

Crusader Kings II: The Reaper's Due Icon
Life and Death go hand in hand
by JRespaldiza, USA - Apr 26th 2017

This DLC for Crusader Kings adds the Hospital buildings for holdings, as well as the Prosperity mechanic and a greater nuance to the epidemics that would periodically show up before. Now whether your domain is ravaged by disease is decided not just by chance, but by the prosperity of your domain and the number and quality of hospitals you have.

You could use your prosperity to build Hospitals and encourage future growth while guarding against disease. Or you could use that money to fund an army and take the chance that the Black Death won't spring up in their wake. If your land is hit with an epidemic you can try to counter it or seclude yourself with your court. Just remember, no matter your choices, the Reaper comes for us all.

Crusader Kings II: Horse Lords Icon
Inherit the Legacy of Ghengis Khan
by JRespaldiza, USA - Apr 26th 2017

This DLC for CK2 introduces the Horde mechanics and a different spin on CK2's original medieval government. Managing your vassals is more important than ever as you balance keeping them happy with not allowing them to grow too strong. The additional parts of the map that are added give you a base to potentially create a horde that rivals the great Mongol Hordes of the time. Will you be able to conquer all the known world?

Stellaris Icon
Awesome Game!
by SteveS, USA - Apr 26th 2017

This game is great, typical Paradox mastery of the grand strategy genre. It's a lot like a 4x but then it's also a lot like a grand strategy, and it's Paradox's most approachable title yet.

Plenty to do in just the base game, with lots of mods available. The space combat is basically click the enemy fleet and the game takes over from there but there is a little more to it than that and the ship customization is excellent.

Can't recommend this game enough!

STASIS Icon
A compelling, smart and legitimately scary experience
by Ishee, Germany - Apr 26th 2017

STASIS is a science fiction horror themed isometric point and click adventure game which takes place aboard the Groomlake, a deep space research vessel that belongs to Cayne Corporation. The game has a very gloomy and dark atmosphere to it and it seems to be inspired by various popular sci-fi horror games and movies such as Alien and Dead Space.

The main gameplay element of STASIS, as with any other point and click adventure type of games, is of course, puzzle solving. I can't remember exactly how many puzzles are in the game but most of them are solvable by finding out certain items and combining them or using them on some background object or something on the environment around you in some way and surprisingly enough, even though I got stuck on some of these sections, afterwards I felt like it all made sense in a way and it wasn't just some way to stall the player progress. Besides this, you'll also come across some some other puzzles that involve some actual investigation and sometimes I even had to take notes so I couldn't forget certain things. That said, STASIS puzzles are not just there for the sake of solving puzzles, they fit in the world and the story and they have a purpose.

Overall STASIS is a great point and click adventure game, it's very atmospheric, immersive and the puzzles are challenging. It offers around 10 hours worth of gameplay along with an amazing sountrack by Mark Morgan and by the end of it you might be facing some moral dilemmas.

Civilization V: The Complete Edition Icon
One...More...Turn...
by JRespaldiza, USA - Apr 26th 2017

I started the Civilization franchise with Civ IV, but this game is the one I hae sunk the most hours into, so much so that I bought a copy for my wife so that we could play together if I'm on the road. It's an amazing game that still can hook you and turn a "Just an hour or so" playtime into "Why is it getting light outside?"

Tropico 5 – Complete Collection Icon
TrEPICo!
by Admir O., Denmark - Apr 24th 2017

Tropic is awesome. Been playing since Tropico 3, had this game for the PS4, had to get the complete edition for PC. So many hours of gameplay just with the base game, with all the DLC at an amazing sale, your set for a lots of hours! Great game, highly recommended.

Europa Universalis IV: Art of War Icon
Must have expansion
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

One of the most useful expansions imo. A lot of the features probably should have been included in the base game though.

Europa Universalis IV: Rights of Man Collection Icon
CK2/Vic2 meet EU4
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Having consorts and ruler personalities starts to make this feel a little like Crusader Kings.

I'd prefer if the great powers could be a little more dynamic. Instead of a hard-coded 8, a variable number would be more realistic imo. Alternatively, adding in secondary powers like Vic2 had would have added some more depth.

Stellaris Icon
Not bad
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

It lacks the depth of other paradox games and feels more like a 4X game than grand strategy. However, it's still developing so that will likely improve.

Europa Universalis IV: Catholic League Unit Pack Icon
Adds some flavor
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Adds a bit of flavor if you play in Europe a lot. Not a lot, but the price is good.

Europa Universalis IV Conquest Collection Icon
Great game!
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Very addicting with lots of replay value.

Getting all the DLC can be a tad expensive, so best to wait till it's on sale.

Stellaris: Plantoids Species Pack Icon
Adds a little flavor, but could be cheaper
by sgiffin, Canada - Apr 24th 2017

Only worth it on sale imo. More of a niche item.
