Total War: Shogun 2 | Fall of the Samurai Mac Review

The east meets the west in Total War: Shogun 2’s expansion Fall of the Samurai. It should be noted that Fall of the Samurai is astandalone expansion and does not require the Total War: Shogun 2 to work. That allowed The Creative Assembly to create a much deeper and richer Total War experience while focusing on the conflict between the Shogunate and the Imperial throne taking place in the 19th Century.

Elder Scrolls Online Mac Review

Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) had a rough first year after its initial release in April 2014.

The Sims 3 was a huge commercial success. So much so, it’s crazy that The Sims Studio and Maxis waited this long to release The Sims 4, their latest take on life simulation. To say that the Sims franchise is a success would be an understatement. When it was first released in September 2014 (on PC), it sold over 400 thousand copies in four days. Sales continue to roll, especially now that the game is also available on Mac (released last month). But while the game kept the same concept as before, The Sims 4 keeps receiving mixed reviews.
