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..

A freemium Minecraft clone with a number of improved features.

It's prettier but has a lot of pop-in. The two block-high jump and sliding movement are unsettling. It's nice to have a list of all crafting patterns, and searching is nice. Crafting is very nice with its previews.

Overall I'd say this is a good game and an appropriate drop-in replacement for people who like Minecraft.

2016-12-25 - Blizzard still hasn't abandoned it yet.

It's ugly to an extreme, and offensive to my eyes to even look at it. The controls are awkward and hard on my mouse hand.

  • Properly titled Diablo II
  • Followed by Diablo 3

I really thought Guild Wars had it all when I learned of it. I went out and found all of the resources i could, and noted all the specs and rumours and whatnot. I ended up becoming a beta tester for it and everything.

Sadly, during gameplay I was very severely disappointed and walked away. I went back to try it a second time and what I considered to be very serious and obvious issues were not and apparently would not be addressed. This topic only remains for amusement's sake, as a testament to my ability to waste huge amounts of time for nothing.

  • Note that I am bound by a beta tester's NDA, so I cannot discuss the various things which went on during my time as a tester.
  • Followed by Guild Wars 2

An awkward shooter which has a music player. I guess the music is related to the gameplay, but I don't see how.

  • Online radio song selection.
  • Really shit folder selection. I accidentally hit upon v to use a proper windows dialog.
  • Cannot choose a folder and have it recursively search.
