Warhammer® 40,000: Dawn of War® - Soulstorm

Warhammer® 40,000: Dawn of War® - Soulstorm

It is the 41st Millennium. For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor of Mankind has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the master of mankind by the will of the gods and master of a million worlds by the might of His inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the vast Imperium of Man for whom a thousand souls are sacrificed every day so that He may never truly die.

Yet even in His deathless state, the Emperor continues His eternal vigilance. Mighty battlefleets cross the daemon-infested miasma of the Warp, the only route between distant stars, their way lit by the Astronomican, the psychic manifestation of the Emperor’s will. Vast armies give battle in His name on uncounted worlds. Greatest amongst His soldiers are the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, bio-engineered super-warriors. Their comrades in arms are legion: the Imperial Guard and countless planetary defence forces, the ever-vigilant Inquisition and the Tech-priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus to name only a few. But for all their multitudes, they are barely enough to hold off the ever-present threat to humanity from aliens, heretics, mutants – and far, far worse.

Do you know when you truly love a game?

When almost 12 years after it’s launch, the giddy excitement of running home from work to play it never actually wore off.

Don’t let my playtime fool you, I owned the boxed versions of these games loooong before they were in my Steam account and have invested literally THOUSANDS of hours into this game. I was always kind of interested in 40K, having roomates who played the tabletop when I was younger and reading the odd comic here and there, but THIS was the game that turned me into a 40K fanboy and opened me up to the whole universe.

Syrian Warfare

Syrian Warfare

«What kind of Arab would I be if I didn’t have a RPG buried in my yard…?»

  • Random guy in first mission after being asked to help defending the village

Wheew, what a ride. Definitely my personal surprise RTS of 2017 so far!

Syrian Warfare is a classic Real Time Strategy game brought to you by tiny Russian developer Cats Who Play. Since some members of the team also worked at GFI before, you could say the game is an unofficial sequel or spin-off to the 2008 RTS Warfare. Judging from videos or screenshots (and even the title font) the similarity is evident.

Syrian Warfare is a modern-day real-time tactics game with some excellent core gameplay, a surprisingly well-made campaign and complex, detailed mechanics that will be familiar to those who have played Men of War, another Russian-developed strategy game series, albiet with a significantly more user-friendly interface.


I had heard of the game last year but didn’t purchase it until now. I had recently been playing the Modern Combat mod for Company of Heroes which got me going back to playing some older modern day RTS/RTT games. I replayed a bit of World in Conflict (which was still as good as I remembered it.) but couldn’t quite maintain my interest in Act of Aggression. Given my experience with the latter I felt that I wouldn’t have much luck going back to the Wargame series since I had never been able to maintain interest in any of the series.

Noob Squad

From: Mad@Steam’s lack of quality control Gamer

To: Developer of Noob Squad (aka Antonio Renna)

Please rename yourself into this game’s name.

Because you can’t make games… you are the Noob Squad here…

PS: (I advise to) Report game for phising - you “need” to make an account, but there are no rules to accept , so basically give away your password to unknown destination.

    • not even to read or link to ToS… anything like that

Let’s be more serious:

  1. Do you like when after each time you press fire, your screen shakes? I’m not talking about recoil… it has camera shake effect everytime you shoot your weapon.

There are hundreds of Multiplayer Only shooters here on Steam and almost all of them fail to get enough players. Some of the shooters are actually good and deserve a few players but with so much choice even the better ones die a quick death. ‘Noob squad’ is NOT one of them.

If the title and description already didn’t give it away, Noob Squad is most likely created by a 12-year old or by a childish person….. I’m not sure but I’m pretty sure most of the assets (if not all) are stolen.

Everything about this game is bad; it’s badly optimised, shitty graphics (even though the screenshots might give you another idea), there are no sound when you walk…. you name it.

Castle Flipper

Castle Flipper

i had 9 games on my wish list for the last 6 months and finally one of them came out—Castle Flipper. I love House Flippers and have about 400 hours on it. My first thought was this would be similar, but after reading the numerous negative comments, I realized it wasn’t. There were also complaints that the quests were completed in 10-12 hours and that was also a turn off. However, the Devs responded and explained the concept of building a castle after the quests.

The game was listed for about $5 (i live in a lower priced Country) and after some thought, I decided to give it a try. After all, everyone has different tastes. Boy was I glad. The setting and music are beautiful. I started by completing a couple of tasks and then was told to build my house. It only required a 4X4 floor plan and took no time to build. Then there were 2 new tasks, one of them was to clean up a ship. While that sounded cool, I realized that was the problem those negative reviewers had. They rushed, rushed, rushed. For example, one player I won’t name gave it a bad review saying there was little to do except the quests that took just a few hours. Yet, this player took the time to make a You Tube video of him playing the game. I watched it to pick up some tips. He rushed, rushed, rushed to complete the quests. This isn’t real life where we live in the fast lane. Slow down. Take a breath and enjoy the game. There is no prize for finishing the game quickly. He even commented that it only cost $10 so not worth the time to ask for a refund. What? Not worth the time. It takes less than a minute to ask for a refund on Steam (I know, I’ve refunded over half my games because they were too difficult.) If someone’s one minute of time is worth more than 10 bucks, then I’m in the wrong business.

First off all, I love these kinds of games. Building and maintaining your own settlement is something I can spend many hours on. Saying that you would think I would recommend this game seeing the endgame is based all around that. But sadly I cannot. The idea is there, build your own castle and collect rent. But the way this has been implemented simply isn’t satisfying. The world feels empty and barren, nothing happens beside the occasional ‘clutter everywhere incidents’ that makes you run around all the houses n clean stuff up. The visuals are great but without life within the game you quickly lose the drive to do anything.

I’ve successfully beaten this game (as in, unlocked everything) without spending a single cent on it. Most of the “time” I have logged on this game was from leaving it idle, and there’s nothing to be gained from this game. I did it as a personal test to train myself to resist microtransactions.

Probably the best and most fun clicker out there.

Took me 1 year to complete 100% (I’m on the finish line right now, probably 2 more days to complete it), but the game is worth the time.

It had some balance issues, but now the game is properly fixed and the events and daily gifts provide a lot of opportunities for players to gain multipliers on the hardest planet to complete, Earth.

Plumber: the Pipe Rush

Plumber: the Pipe Rush

I really like this game. It’s a simple concept, but challenging and different every time. And it’s fun to see how complicated you can make the pipeline. The only issue is that I wish that when it does fail, it was easier to see the board to see what went wrong. A bunch of stuff is displayed over the board after a failure which makes it difficult to see the problem.

Note: As of reviewing, I have played the first ten levels.

This is a fun game which at its most basic is about using pipes to transport toxic waste from point A to point B without a leak. However, the gameplay contains a lot more nuance and presents additional challenges as you progess through the levels. The pipes come in multiple shapes and some of them add extra directions for the waste to travel while others create a “dead end”, allowing you to make the waste travel a certain direction. You will not always have the pieces you want, so there is some tetris-esque strategy involved in deciding when to trash one of your current pieces to try for a better replacement or to improvise with what you currently have. Additionally, some levels already begin with pipe pieces present, so you have the option of placing your pieces strategically to connect with these or to work around them as if they were an obstacle.
