Halo Wars 2

Real-time strategy makes an explosive return to the Halo universe in Halo Wars 2. Lead Spartans, Warthogs and other classic Halo fighting forces in a brutal war against a terrifying new enemy on the biggest Halo battlefield ever. I bounced off of this several times, the first act is pretty weak with limited story progress and frustrating game play. I apparently stopped playing the last time right before the second cut scene which really gave the game a turn for the better and improved the game play with new units and game mechanics. I really enjoyed the second half of...

Each of them have their own abilities that can be used to solve environmental puzzles. It’s included with a X-Box live subscription as a part of the Games with Gold program.

Sonic 3

As the first game to introduce us to Knuckles, this Sonic game has a very special place in my heart. For some reason I remember this game much more than either Sonic 1 or Sonic 2, and had completely forgotten how quickly you can get through the entire game if you just keep running through everything. Exploring the maps can easily double your play time, but I think I spend about 3 hours on it this play through?  I remember playing this with my sister playing Tails, we were a great team! Also noteworthy of how I played it: my...

To the Moon

A unique and engrossing story-driven experience I’m happy this style of narrative driven gaming hasn’t taken off.

The Banner Saga

An epic Viking saga with beautifully hand drawn combat sequences and animations, accompanied by an evocative score from Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory. A very pretty game with great voice work and noticeably awesome soundtrack. It’s a shame that I don’t seem to like the grid based combat, it’s just too confusing and uninspiring. I was bored halfway through the first fight at the bar and decided I wasn’t going to be able to take an entire game with that type of game play.
