It's been a busy holiday season so sadly I haven't had many free afternoons to try out some new games. In fact I've been sucked back into classics like Civ V. It's always a fantastic way to spend a long winter night with a glass of Christmas whiskey. In addition I've played the odd game of Company of Heroes and Dawn of War. It was a bit of a departure for me who usually snags a few Steam sale games to check out.
This year my acquisitions didn't live up to my expectations. I had been into Open TTD and wanted more railroad games so I bought Sid Meier's Railroads! It has potential but honestly it was a little less than I was expecting. I also picked up Tom Clancy's EndWar since I'm a fan of any strategy war game. That too wasn't quite the game I was hoping. To be fair I haven't tried it with the voice commands in place yet which could change my opinion.
So my holiday buys didn't give me the gaming boost I was suspecting. There's still New Years and some untouched titles in my library. Maybe I'll discover some secret gems that will turn things around.
