Good thing being colorblind requires you to have a constant internet connection.

Kinda curious about this one.
I'll have video impressions but not until the retail release date of Feb 12; the review version has been on my Steam account for about a week or so.

It's a simplified city builder (less resources, with direct relationships between converting them (rather than having multi-step chains) ...examples: a speakeasy sells liquor and beer for dirty money, while a ponzi scheme converts dirty money into your "liked" rating) with turn-based tactical battles that are interesting when special abilities are involved.

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.

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.
