It’s not often you come across a tactical WWII game that features the fascist invasion of the Soviet Union. Partisans 1941 changes this. Usually, games that do focus on the Soviet Union’s efforts in WWII focus on the counterattack and inevitable capturing of Berlin. These events occur much later in the war than the events of Partisans 1941. Which is one of the reasons Partisans 1941 can be a refreshing experience.
Early this month there was a lot of discussion about Days Gone, and since it was on sale on Steam I decided to ride into the Hot Take mines. So I packed my (virtual) motorcycle and headed to (also virtual) Oregon. I know a lot of people like Days Gone, but to be honest, IContinue reading “This Week I Played Days Gone”
Backbone can in the loosest terms be described as a furry detective game, which is why in April of 2018 I wasted no time in backing it on Kickstarter.

In 2003 I was a baby child who had just got the platinum GameCube for Christmas. One of the first games I got for it was Freedom Fighters. It is now 2020. I have once purchased Freedom Fighters. Earlier this week, on September 21st, nearly seventeen years after its initial release IO Interactive has re-released Freedom Fighters. This game, since I first played it, has been in my top ten list. I am glad to finally own it on PC.
Friday before Labor Day I woke up to a glorious surprise. That surprise was that Star Wars Battlefront 2 was for sale on Steam for less than $15. I remember a huge amount of grumblings when the game first came out. I remember most of this being about how loot crates work. I wanted toContinue reading “This Week I Played Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the second one)”

I completely skipped Tom Clancy’s The Division when it first came out, that was a mistake. Like countless people I recently picked up Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 while it was on a 95% sale to promote the release of the game’s new expansion Warlords of New York. I was hooked by the end ofContinue reading “This Week I Played Tom Clancy’s The Division 2”
