Dominating the videogame industry is surprisingly easy. Had I know, this I would surely have entered into the field at a young age and been a mult-billionaire by this point, swimming in cash acquired from willing suckers in lucrative free-to-play games. About a dozen hours into my time with Mad Games Tycoon I’ve acquired the largest building possible, which houses two development teams, each supported by their very own PR departments, mo-cap studios, roomful of testers to tweak the balance and check for bugs, sizable areas dedicated purely to graphics and bunches of sound engineers. On top of that I have in-house production that also lets me publish games from other developers as well as my own, a server room to support my numerous MMOs and training areas so that my staff can be the best possible. Also, there’s some kickin’ sound systems strewn about the place. Yup, domination is good.

King of Tokyo might just be one of the very best games I’ve ever played for showing non-gamers just how much fun games can be. In it you’ll take control of one of six awesome monsters in a bid to score 20 points before your friends by rolling dice and wrecking Tokyo city in a pleasing homage to the Kaiju genre of movies. It’s fast, easy to play and hugely entertaining. Plus, space penguin. Yup.
I need to amend my article from a short while ago detail my seven favorite games of 2016 so far, because DOOM needs to be right near the top with the Witcher 3’s Blood & Wine DLC. This is a return to a simpler time of lighting fast movement and balls-to-the-wall shooting that leaves you a little bit breathless and a whole lot happy. It’s exciting, visceral and a whole bunch of other PR friendly words that you’d probably find adorning a press release. DOOM kills it throughout the entirety of its campaign. It’s only misteps are its forays into the realms of competitive multiplayer.

Frogware have carved out an interesting niche for themselves in the form of their Sherlock Holmes series, which currently has no real competition. To my knowledge they are unique within the gaming world, which is probably why the many fans that play the series are willing to put up with its rough edges. Now Frogwares are back with another new adventure, so have they managed to tidy things up in their quest to bring more action to Sherlock? Spoiler; nope.
