Expeditions: Viking Review for PC

It appears the old-fashioned isometric RPG is seeing a bit of a resurgence in popularity, with games such as Divinity: Original Sin, Tyranny, and Pillars of Eternity seeing great critical and commercial success in the past several years. Expeditions: Viking continues this revival of the genre, acting as a spiritual successor to developer Logic Artists’ Expeditions: Conquistador. From the title of the game, I had expected something more akin to an RTS with a touch of historical simulation such as the older Total War games. However, Viking is a story-focused RPG through and through. There are full-fledged characters, side quests, etc. on top of creating your own character and allocating skill points. It all shows strong potential, but unfortunately the game is held back by a variety of troublesome factors.

Mirage: Arcane Warfare REVIEW for PC

Mirage: Arcane Warfare by Torn Banner Studios is a first-person combat game, where you battle opponents with several types of melee weapons, swords, maces, axes, etc. There are also special moves that one can use during battle and can possibly catch another by surprise. Each class has a certain set of moves and weapons, that determine their individual play style, but the main goal is to kill enemy players without taking losses. If you are a fan of Overwatch or For Honor, you’ll like this, because it takes the fun, fast paced fighting in Overwatch and the up-close combat style of For Honor and brings it together to create an action-packed game.
