Middle Earth: Shadow Of War Is Worth Playing

Middle Earth Shadow of War

Well folks, Middle Earth: Shadow of War has officially come out for Android just a few days after we teased it here.

Dwarf Fortress is a simulation game that is probably most widely known as an ASCII game that is prohibitively complicated. While the graphics are ASCII-based, and while it is one of the deepest, most complicated simulation games out there, Dwarf Fortress is not nearly as hard to get started with as people think it is. I could try to sum up how to get started, but the best resource by far comes from the official wiki. Dwarf Fortress Wiki Quickstart Guide If you’re a Dwarf Fortress beginner and are looking…

Killzone: Mercenary: Still The Best Handheld Shooter

Killzone: Mercenary

Before we start, I want to say that I am well aware that Killzone: Mercenary is a four-year old game on a basically dead console. Its age is part of why I want to talk about it, though.

Variant: Limits: A Video Game That Teaches Calculus

Variant: Limits

When it comes to educational games, students are generally not as excited about them as their teachers are. There are some great examples out there, but there are so few that any new entry is welcome. Even the ones that are out there are usually geared towards elementary schoolers.
