Stellaris
 – 

Space, the final frontier...

It's a semi-openended space sim. It's good if your the type of gamer who gets lost in a game for hours at a time.

UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late
 – 

Love these ARC Sys fighters

It's exactly what you expect from an ARC System Works or a French Bread game: tight gameplay, 234167853167534 battle systems, unique and interesting characters, blazing soundtrack, beautiful hand drawn sprites and all around fun.

Wings! Remastered Edition
 – 

Pretty good remaster

Dude, this game is from 1990 and it was rebuilt in 3D. Crazy,. It's pretty good in that retro way

DARK SOULS™ III Deluxe Edition
 – 

Warning: may cause dysfunctional relationship

It's hard, it's pretty. It's down-right abusive, at times. You say to yourself "NO MORE", but you come back. You always come crawling back. And DSIII always takes you back, and it's all good again... till the cycle repeats.

WWE 2K18 Deluxe Edition
 – 

2 steps forward, 2 steps back.

While I appreciate that 2k is committed to not microtransactioning their games to hell, I am really not impressed with the new lootbox unlock system, especially given how little VC (Virtual Currency?) you earn from matches and promos. It's double bad when you add the fact that VC is also used for attributes and skills.

The new running around backstage fetch questy myCareer is kinda not fun. The matches themselves are good, but it shouldn't take me having to track down a guy, sit through the canned animation, accept his side quest then talk to whoever then start my match or promo EVERY MATCH.

The graphics have seen a major overhaul in all areas except the hair (also still has janky physics like drapes). The CAS cloth texture feature is way better and doesn't take ages to load anymore. Actually, CAS overall has seen improvement.

The match flow is better and bugs are actively being fixed. A definite improvement overall, but not for non-wrestling fans.

Dogfight 1942 Complete Pack
 – 

This is really more of a 7.5/10 than a 4/5

Great arcade dogfighting and great value on sale. Get the bundle.

It's PAC-MAN on crack, man!

It's PAC-MAN but with bells and whistles and all the colours.

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Game of the Year Edition Deluxe

Alpha Protocol

Good distraction shooter

Nothing about it is perfect. Nothing about it is bad.

Raiden IV: OverKill
 – 

Super good Shmup

If you like 3, you'll love 4. They have 3 unique ship types, as always (fairy type FTW).

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People
 – 

It's a cool game and I'm an attractive people

Pretty hilarious point and click, if you love the old Homestarrunner website, which I do. All chapters included.

Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition
 – 

Decent little distraction

You're not gonna get infinite replay value out of this. It's fun to mess around with for a few days then you move on, kinda like Goat Simulator and I am Bread.

Kung Fu Strike: The Warrior's Rise
 – 

Actually the DLC, but whatever

So, my key was actually for the Master Level DLC and not the base game, for whatever reason. Since that is what you get with the keys for sale here, that is what I'll review: the DLC. It's your basic hard mode levels and a fun co-op survival mode with infinite waves of enemies. Worth it if you like challenging beat em ups, but not necessary to have a complete experience.

TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT
 – 

Super fun, super repetitive

Wait till it's on sale, guys. It's a fantastic side scroller with great puzzle elements, but it gets old fast. IIf you do get it, use it as a palate cleanser between other games, because it's probably not going to be the type of game you play start to finish in 1 sitting.

Sid Meier's Civilization V: The Complete Edition
 – 

The modern Civ for newbies

Civ 6 is not noob-friendly. It's a fact. Civ 5, however has all the bells and whistles you want with a less overly intricate system and thus an easier intro to the series for noobs. Experienced players will like 6 more.

Fairy Fencer F
 – 

Notice me Sempai

Ok, this is your typical JRPG: over the top clothing and weapons, over the top intro, somewhat clunky but functional mechanics but still reasonably fun. Turn-based, not much of an over world, somewhat visual novelish. It's ok, but you'd be better off with FF:ADF, the remake.

Vanquish
 – 

Cheesey good.

I had this back on the 360 and now that the damage bug is fixed, it's an excellent port. The story is pure cheese, but this is 3rd person Mega Man basically. Zip around in power armour and shoot robots, whose guns you can assimilate... yeah, good times.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Extend
 – 

BlazBlue 3... so good

If you like fast paced 2D fighters, especially the hand drawn variety, then buy this game. If not a fan of speed and pressure, not for you.
