Stellaris ReeXamination #2

When Stellaris first launched in 2016, it was marketed under the slogan “Make Space Great Again.” Lately, I’ve been campaigning for Stellaris by co-opting a different American political rallying cry: “Keep Stellaris WeirdTM.” What I mean is, as Stellaris continues to grow and change (it’s basically a living organism at this point), I believe that … Continue reading Stellaris ReeXamination #2

Endless Space 2 reeXamination #1

Since the release of Endless Space 2, Amplitude has graced its fans with multiple small FreeLCs spread out between their two major expansions. I’m going to kill two Cravers with one bomb by covering both the Vaulters and Supremacy expansions in this reexamination. For those of you who haven’t purchased the DLC yet don’t worry, … Continue reading Endless Space 2 reeXamination #1

Galactic Civilizations III ReeXamination #2

When it comes to space 4X games, we are downright spoiled. The last couple of years have brought us space 4X titles such as Stellaris, Master of Orion, and, of course, Galactic Civilizations III! Released before the current flood of space 4X games (May 2015), GC3 initially made quite a splash within the 4X community. … Continue reading Galactic Civilizations III ReeXamination #2

Master Of Orion: Conquer The Stars ReeXamination #1

Master of Orion holds a very special place in my heart. I am sure I’m not alone in this. When Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars was released in August 2016, the 4X community held its collective breath. MoO:CtS’s Early Access was a little bumpy. The game improved a great deal in time for launch, … Continue reading Master Of Orion: Conquer The Stars ReeXamination #1

Stellaris ReeXamination #1

The case files for Stellaris are curious. When it launched earlier this year, expectations for Paradox’s “4X meets grand strategy in space” were quite high. And for a good reason! Paradox’s long-running Europa Universalis and Crusader Kings franchises are highwater marks in the world of strategy gaming. Stellaris was poised to build on that accomplishment, … Continue reading Stellaris ReeXamination #1

Thea: The Awakening ReeXamination #1

On April 15th, Muha Games launched its first DLC for Thea: The Awakening. Back when I reviewed the original game, I gave it a “Recommended,” but I still had several problems with it. Thea needed better endgame challenges. It was too easy to assemble an uber stack-of-doom and throttle the high-end creatures. Further, there was … Continue reading Thea: The Awakening ReeXamination #1
