A fauldschool resource game that would have made for a fine free Flash game, but is instead for-pay.

Fair.

In a dystopic future akin to Brave New World - (1932 book), by Aldous Huxley, everyone is lost in a virtual reality, playing a game to take control of the world's largest corporation.

This movie is parasitic to the childhoods of old men and permanent-children. It's worth a watch if you're over 40, otherwise it'll be a fairly confusing mess of references.

A semi-roguelike tower defence-ish game.

Utterly impossible. Doesn't make a lick of sense. Unlimited waves of stuff, for some reason. Can't build enough, the resource limitations are obscene.

Be a gang member, run around in a sandbox world and shoot stuff, I guess.

It's alright.

  • Note that the original Saints Row - (2006 game) was only released for the Xbox 360.

A combined first-person shooter and tower-defense game.

Seems pretty cute, but I hate tower defense games which have multiple entrances.

Build and expand a space-faring race who learns they are not alone in the universe.

Master of Orion - (1993 game) but with updated graphics and a confusing interface. I expect would have loved this in the past, but now it's just awkward. I'll still tag this as 'liked', as it's pretty good. It's very hard in the eyes. Take a lot of breaks.

Extremely stupidly hard.. and confusing. I'm shelving it. I only paid $12 USD for it, so it's not a big loss.. still, I wish the UI was better and the tutorial was better and the gameplay was better..

Laser things, move things, push things and find your way through semi-puzzle stuff.

With an art style (and opening sequences) reminiscent of Borderlands and gameplay reminiscent of Okami, this game has a very strong initial impression on me.

Not open-world, and definitely "on rails", but it does give a lot of power to the user as to how to fart around to progress.

While overall good, the controls are wonky and cliffs are obnoxious. There should be no falling off mechanic and the game should instead dangle the player for a moment and never let them fall.
