It’s been a busy week! My first Nerd Stash game review just went live and I got to cover a couple of cool news items.
More great stuff is coming in the next couple of weeks!
(Review) Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition – This game was the real deal! The Divinity series has been popular with PC gamers for years but Original Sin Enhanced Edition marked the series’ arrival on consoles. It was a pleasure to check it out on Xbox One and write up my thoughts.
Expect more reviews from me in the near future!
(Humble Bundle) Humble Codemasters Bundle Delivers Big for Racers – I love what the Humble Bundle team does and I love my racing. You can imagine my response to the Humble Codemasters Bundle. Codemasters is the studio behind the awesome DiRT and Grid series as well as some great non-racing games. As usual, the bundle supports a couple of great charities.
(New Release) Musical Language Game Lyriko Now Available for Android and iOS – Needless to say I can’t thoroughly cover mobile games and I don’t pretend to try. That said, occasionally I find a game I can’t help but talk about.
Lyriko was designed and developed by an MIT grad with a fascination for music and language studies. He combined the two and wound up with a game that plays like a musical Rosetta Stone course. It doesn’t pretend to be a full-fledged language learning tool but it’s outstanding for players who are already studying a foreign language.
In addition to these posts I finalized a feature that hasn’t been posted yet and also covered a great news story (currently in the hands of the editor) about the upcoming UFC bout between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor deciding the cover art for EA Sports UFC 2.
I’ll include late posts in next week’s roundup!
