StarDrive: 4X Action-Strategy

Stardrive

StarDrive is a 4X Action-Strategy game where the goal is to build a space empire.

Starting with a single planet and a small number of space-worthy vessels, you forge out into the galaxy, exploring new worlds, building new colonies, and discovering the StarDrive universe.

The heart of StarDrive is its ship design and combat engine.

StarDrive takes a module-based approach to ship design, allowing the player to create custom ship designs where the composition and placement of ship modules really matters to the performance of a ship in combat. In combat, if your portside armor is taking a beating, then rotate around and show them the starboard side! Hide behind a friendly capital ship’s shields, warp into and out of the fray, launch fighters, lay mines, and so much more.

Finally finished downloading my copy of Dragon Age : Origins Deluxe through steam.

Dragon Age: Origins is a single-player role-playing video game developed by BioWare’s Edmonton studio and published by Electronic Arts. It is the first game in the Dragon Age franchise. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November 2009, and for Mac OS X on December 21, 2009.

Set in the fictional kingdom of Ferelden during a period of civil strife, the player assumes the role of a warrior, mage or rogue who must unite the kingdom to fight an impending invasion by demonic forces. BioWare describes Dragon Age: Origins as a “dark heroic fantasy set in a unique world”, and a spiritual successor to their Baldur’s Gate series of games, which took place in the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise.

Upon its release, Dragon Age: Origins was lauded with overwhelmingly positive reviews and considered a critical success. Aggregate review site Metacritic ranks the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 versions of the game with scores of 91, 87, and 86, respectively. The game also received multiple awards from numerous outlets, ranging from IGN’s “PC Game of The Year (2009)” to the Academy of Interactive Arts & Science’s “Role-Playing/Massively Multiplayer Game of the Year 2009”.

An expansion to the game, titled Dragon Age: Origins – Awakening, was released in March 2010, and the official sequel, Dragon Age II, was released in March 2011. BioWare intends for Dragon Age: Origins to serve as the foundation for a much broader intellectual property. Even before its release, plans to expand the universe introduced by the game were underway; this included sequels, pen and paper games, books, and comics that would expand the scope of the Dragon Age franchise. Several of those projects have since been released.

Defense Grid: The Awakening (TD Game)

Defense Grid: The Awakening is a tower defense game developed by Hidden Path Entertainment for Xbox Live Arcade on the Xbox 360 and Windows.

The player must defend his power cores using ten different tower types from the invading enemy.Some of the tower types in the game include:Defense grid logo

  • Gun: machine gun tower
  • Cannon: long-range projectile weapon
  • Inferno: flamethrower weapon
  • Laser: laser weapon
  • Tesla: a gauss-type weapon

Each tower has unique trade-offs that affect ideal placement, such as line-of-sight attack or ballistic trajectory fire; a large area of effect or damage over time; and minimum and maximum ranges.

Killing enemies earns resources, which can be used to:

  • Build more towers
  • Upgrade towers toward three different levels
  • Save the resources for the next level

Over the course of the game, the player battles 15 different types of enemies, each with their own unique capabilities and strategies.
