Anyone know what Endless Space is? Is it 4X? Is it an RTS? The store page itself tells me absolutely nothing.

How about almost an hour of gameplay video with commentary? In short, it's a streamlined 4X game with non-interactive battles and a slick interface.

Natural Selection 2 was my best first person shooter of the year. Didn't even get a mention on the list (because it's not by a major publisher that pays advertising revenue?).

Call of Duty: Black Ops II has tallied over one billion dollars in gross sales

You're right, that is gross.

Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Tip your waitress.

Fun game. Even if you don't quite understand what's going on all the time, you can still help your team out by following people and listening to the commander. Two sides are distinctive. Definitely looking forward to release day.

Eurogamer.net gave it a 10??

It's actually pretty fun. A top-down puzzle game where you have to shoot/bash/punch with split-second reflexes rather than match 3. It's not a 10, IMO, but it's good. Very challenging and inherently unfair (you vs 14 guys and no weapons to start with), but not really "unfair" as there is always a solution if you have the skill.

Here is me playing it for 45 minutes. SPOILER ALERT: I end up getting the high score (against the developers, no less) in the last match.

I played it for about an hour this morning and I couldn't figure out how to create different profiles or teams for local play either.
You can't. It's all tied to your Steam user name. Just have to put all your teams in at once.

I can see both sides of the equation on doing a review, but I simply am not able to play enough of the game to evaluate anything that would remotely constitute the level of detail I require in writing a review. As a comparison, SotS 2 was better off (if you can believe that) and playable enough (and I even waited a week on that one) to render a verdict and talk about what was missing. In the case of LoP, it seems like large chunks of the game are missing or wholly underdeveloped. This doesn't even count the large number of bugs that cause corrupted saved games and crashes to the desktop.

I honestly have nothing to write about. If I did a review, I would be making analysis up based on whatever features are described in the manual. I did send out a tweet regarding this issue, so everyone should simply avoid the game until further notice.

Why?

A bug corrupted my campaign and I'm not starting it over until I am sure it won't happen again.
