Conan Exiles – Architects of Argos Pack Review

Conan Exiles – Architects of Argos PackFuncom Funcom has really done a fantastic job of fleshing out their fantasy-themed survival/crafting title, Conan Exiles.

Total War: Warhammer II – The Warden & The Paunch DLCCreative Assembly / Sega Goodness gracious, have the good folks over at Creative Assembly been busy; constantly outdoing themselves when I didn’t think the Total War: Warhammer DLC couldn’t get any better.

Total War: Warhammer 2 – The Prophet and the Warlock Review – One of the Series’ Best DLC Yet

Total War: Warhammer 2 – The Prophet and the Warlock Creative Assembly/SEGA Like myself, many gamers were a little late to the whole Warhammer Fantasy Battle bandwagon.

Warhammer: Vermintide 2 – Shadows Over Bögenhafen DLC Fatshark As someone who was never really that familiar with any of the Warhammer Fantasy Battle lore, I was a little apprehensive when Fatshark released the first Warhammer: Vermintide game back in 2016. It took a few friends to convince me to try it out and once…

Total War: WARHAMMER II – Curse of the Vampire Coast Review – Yo-ho-ho, A Pirate’s (Un)Life For Me!

Total War: WARHAMMER II – Curse of the Vampire Coast Creative Assembly/SEGA By all accounts, Total War: WARHAMMER II has had a slow start coming out of the gate, especially considering how well-paced the first game’s DLC release schedule shuffled along.
