Let’s Play – XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Episode 02: New Beginnings

So a funny thing happened on the way to my XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Let’s Play – I realized I started the wrong damn game. We caught it around the 30 minute mark in this episode. Fast-forward to 45 minutes when I finally start War of the Chosen, instead of vanilla XCOM 2. Whoops!

Gaming Backlog Final Thoughts – Darkest Dungeon

An excellent, unique 2D tactical dungeon crawler severely hampered by late-game pacing.

Adventuring through my backlog of games, one game at a time. 

Developer: Red Hook Studios
Publisher: Merge Games
Release Date: August 19, 2016
