Weedcraft Inc Review – A Good High?

Ah, the Devil’s Lettuce. Wacky baccy. Weed. Cannabis. Grass. Green stuff. The thing you were told to say no to. There are many words for marijuana, but it’s not a subject we see in video games very often, even despite the growing acceptance of its usage and potential medical benefits.

Or more specifically, how to make some money from growing and selling it. Can this light strategy game give players a buzz, though?

Tropico 6 Review – A Solid 6th Entry

The Wizards: Enhanced Edition Review – Amateur Magician

On paper, I think hurling magic fireballs and casting spells is a near perfect match for the wonders of VR gaming. Who doesn’t want to wave their hands in a vaguely mystical fashion to summon an ice bow? The Wizards attempts to capture the mystic arts by making you swing your hands around like you’re trying to swat a wasp that has no concept of personal space. To the outside world you look like a raving lunatic, but in The Wizards: Enhanced Edition you’re wielding powerful forces.

Patch Notes: BioWare’s Problems, Borderlands & Pre-Owned Sales

In case you missed the past couple of Patch Notes this is a mid-week article where we cover a couple of pieces of news from the past week and I ramble about them, because rambling is what I do. This week has been pretty busy, but I’ve grabbed three things in particular that grabbed my limited attention span.
