A few words about Omerta. I really like how Haemimont does simple and accessible strategy games, but I think they overshot a bit and missed how theme informs mechanics and what makes Tropico work while Omerta doesn't.

If you missed this post from Wednesday night, I took a look at how historical strategy games treat the Papacy as a mechanic, often outside the usual competition for resources between equal actor.

I know very little good game music, and I blame strategy games.

Yeah, I had to get my two cents in on XCom: Enemy Unknown. I really like this game.

So finally started shooting and uploading video to my blog channel. Will be doing proper edited videos about strategy and wargames very soon. Also, the video has some thoughts about my upcoming video project with +Jenn Cutter

I'm starting a new project with my best friend. If you're curious, she has the details over on her blog. I'll add some more context on my blog on Monday.

Last night, I  wrote a post about FTL - the current indie darling. And it's earned every bit of praise. It's tiny, repetitive and somewhere between a roguelike and a tactical battle game. I love it, and have never come even close to winning it.

Finally posted my review of a book that took a long time to read - wouldn't have finished if not for the vacation last week.

Playing at the World is not for everyone, of course. It is huge, it has few illustrations of concepts or games and it takes long detours, seemingly for the hell of it. But I really love what Peterson is doing here.
