Sid Meier’sCivilization V is more addicting than crack. I am shocked, considering how over the years I’ve gradually lost interest in the strategy genre and didn’t think any game was going to pull me back. When Civ V caught my attention I wasn’t even sure I wanted to get it. I was on the fence until last Thursday evening when my husband called me on his way home from a business trip and asked if I could buy it for him off Steam. Boy, I love it when the tough decisions are made for me. For a few nights straight, both of us sat enthralled at our computers after dinner playing the game, exchanging words only to share thoughts like “Cool, a Great General was born in my capital” or “Dammit, why is Augustus Caesar being such a dick?” Truthfully, I think a part of me already knew I was going to enjoy this game even before I installed it, probably while reading Anjin’s first Civ V post when it hit me just how much everything he … [Read more...] about Hi, My Civ V Tactic Is Annihilation, What’s Yours?

Soulworker Online is one of few upcoming Anime titles that had a lot of hype over the past few years. The game is still being developed South Korea for quite some time now and to everyone's surprise, the title is going to be marketed in Japan first with Open Beta scheduled this year. Are you curious about the new changes of Soulworker Online? Be one of the first to read about it below! Character Customization - Playable Characters The first beta offered three playable characters two female and one male. Starting with a Female Soulum Sword, a Male Gun Jazz, and a Female Mist Scythe. I believe the Open Beta will have three female characters and only one male, unless they're planning to release the hidden male character shown in teaser trailers. Character customization was a bit limited in this test and may improve on the next test. Moving on! The World - Action MMORPG or Action MORPG? Soulworker was advertised as an Action MMORPG since the early development phase of the game … [Read more...] about STEPARU News, Reviews, Previews & Information for Foreign Games Soulworker Online Review of the 1st Closed Beta
Part of The Complete Beginner’s Guide As in many free-to-play games the economy of War Thunder can be slightly confusing, with several types of currencies, rewards, items and so forth. Money, Money, Money The two currencies are Silver Lions, mostly earned from playing missions and battles, and Gold Eagles, mostly bought with real money. Silver Lions are used to purchase regular aircraft and modifications, to repair and resupply aircraft after battles, and to buy up to two extra crew slots. Gold Eagles have many uses, as outlined later in this post. You certainly don’t need to buy any Gold Eagles if you don’t want to; player skill and teamwork will get you a lot further than just spending money. Like many games of the genre, as you move up the ranks the cost of new aircraft, repairs and the like gets steeper so progress gets a lot slower, but if you’re not too hung up on advancing and enjoying the battles I wouldn’t worry too much about it. If you feel the … [Read more...] about A Beginner’s Guide to War Thunder – Items and Premium Options
1. Dismissal Sounds Unlikely Let’s start off at the same station and make a few things clear: Despite what is being tossed around on the internet, this case is not a slam dunk for either side (at least not evident from the statements being thrown back and forth). It is very likely that this case is going to go to trial, as there are a ton of allegations being made and accusations that are going to require the backing of email communications and witness testimony. We are not at the point in the case where either side is trying to convince a judge/jury, that won’t come for months down the road. What Cloud Imperium Games is doing with its response is attempting to have the case dismissed by convincing the judge that the accusations have no merit and including comments that there are no damages to be recovered regardless of Crytek’s claims of breach. Since this is a gigantic lawsuit, I wanted to go down the list of points that I found interesting so far. This is not … [Read more...] about In Plain English: Crytek V Cloud Imperium Games (and RSI)
