What have I been playing this week?

Tyranny – Story driven RPG where your choices mean all the difference in a world conquered by evil. Gorgeous graphics, in-depth RPG storyline where you’re engaged in conversations that actually matter and your responses matter. Loot is plentiful and combat is handled brilliantly with  strategic battles that include a pause option to allow you to properly plan your parties attack and ability use. It’s not a casual game it’s a true RPG and requires a lot of planning and tuning of your characters abilities and powers.
