Sid Meier's Civilization V

Being of the turn-based 4X strategy genre, Sid Meier's Civilization V is not something I consider to be the most enjoyable type of game. I have played some of the earlier titles in the series, the fourth and the very first I think, but I have never owned a copy of one myself. However, I had to make an exception when Civ 5 Complete Edition was 92% off two months ago. The deal was too good to pass.

Batman: Arkham City

Batman: Arkham City takes place half a year after the events of the first game. A whole city district has been repurposed into a massive prison. Bruce Wayne opposes the idea, and during a press conference he voices his opinion in, Hugo Strange's thugs capture and throw him in the said facility.

Batman: Arkham Asylum

It was time to finally beat the first two Batman: Arkham games hidden in my Steam library. I have a code for the third's DLC too but I doubt I will buy the actual game nor continue with the series.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

Here is a game I did not finish this last year and probably never will either. It had a free weekend -- a second one in fact, so desperate were/are they to get people to play it -- and I decided to try going through its singleplayer campaign during it. I got to mission 5 until I uninstalled the game and removed it from my wishlist. Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III -- what the hell happened?

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

Shantae and the Pirate's Curse was almost a pure impulse purchase for me. I saw it in the lowest tier of a humble bundle some time back and thought that maybe I should try a 2D platformer for a change. The game's user reception on Steam seemed to be rather positive too.

Darksiders Revisited

I started a new game plus in Darksiders II Deathinitive Edition to get remaining Steam achievements. To my unfortunate surprise however, something had changed and the game had become very unstable since I played it last year. Maybe they included the beta patch or something but crashes had definitely become common.

Grim Dawn

Titan Quest got an anniversary edition update last year and I went back to see how the game was. The update combined the base game with its expansion, Immortal Throne, and included bug fixes and balance tweaks, but otherwise everything was exactly as before. . . which is not all that good actually. It is hard to believe I went through the game's all three difficulty levels with two characters back in the day. But maybe there were not that many games to play then.
