Games/Expansions in 2018 that I’m anticipating

New year, new games! For me, 2018 begins with a hopefully great expansion coming: Civilization VI's "Rise and Fall". It will be released on February 8, which coincides with me leaving my current job.

Folk Tale: Where is it now? (March 2017)

Update (June 27, 2017): The developer seems to have gone MIA. The last post in the game's Steam Communiy Hub was posted on April 30, 2017. Before that, there were several posts each week.

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (September 2016)

First of all, we have Rift and some tiny news about its upcoming expansion "Starfall Prophecy". We still do not have a date for the expansion's launch, unfortunately.

When reading through the Steam community hub of Funatics's game "Valhalla Hills", I saw a post by a player saying that Funatics was recently acquired by InnoGames.

However, an English post that I found specifies that Funatics had to … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (Mai 2016)

Atlas Reactor Alpha returns on March 31

Yes, that's right! We will finally be able to play Atlas Reactor again come March 31. According to Trion, this is the last alpha test and the game will go into closed beta afterwards.
