Diving deeper into Sid Meier's Civilization V

True hardcore devotees of the Civilization franchise are like long-time heroin addicts. They’ve got a need for a specific kind of fix, and they will do whatever it takes to get it. They also accept no substitutes; when Civilization Re...

Review: Castlevania Puzzle: Encore of the Night

I clearly remember the sense of fascination and wonder I experienced the first time I scored a strategy guide for Metroid back in the late 80’s. Seeing all of Zebes laid out on the pages at once was a joy for me, and I would take it w...
