I’m a big fan of empire building strategy games, starting first with Age of Empires II when I was around 8 yrs old, followed by many others. I went from RTS (real time strategy) to turn based strategy with Civ Revolution before moving onto Medieval II Total War and Empire Total War. This changed everything.Continue reading “10 Reasons you might want to play Total War: Warhammer”

Shadow of a Dead God – Review

Author – Patrick SamphirePages – 362 A really fun fantasy murder mystery that grabs you on the first page and doesn’t let go.

Truth and Other Lies – Review

A brilliant Norse mythology read that stands on its own merits to produce a witty, unique and enjoyable love story that keeps you turning page after page.

Storm Front (Dresden Files Book 1) – Review

Author – Jim Butcher Pages – 355 An underwhelming first book in the popular Dresden Files series, the sexist elements and thin plot outweighing the few bits of potential and successful capture of the Film Noir vibe.
