Tropico 5 is the latest version of the Tropico Series that Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games has released and is one hell of a city builder. It was released for download by the Kalypso Launcher on May 23rd with great anticipation from gamers. Even though Tropico 4 and Tropico 3 has some issues gamers looked to 5 to fix those and keep the series alive. In some ways this is true but in others it just isn’t so.

Some gamers, the more vocal ones, are calling this game just a reason for the two companies to sell DLC add-ons for stuff that should already be there. You will notice that the stars that have been given do not reflect some of what I am saying here. The reason is that as a stand alone product is is a very good game. When looking at it with the rest of the series in mind it is lacking in many ways.

If you are looking for a varied challenge, then please, swing by BFG and download Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin‘ right now! While it is a hidden object game, it has none of the dark tones of many of the games out there, and since it is free to play, you will only be losing the time you put into to it, unless you want to purchase little side items to make it run quicker. this is no rush to the end of the game, because, like LOTRO, it is always being updated. In fact, they just tied up their Thanksgiving holiday special, and I am really looking forward to the one for the winter holidays.

I had finally played the first Assassin’s Creed game and it is pretty good but, I like number better than this game. This game take place in the Middle Ages. You are fight against the Templars and the Crusade. After I played this game, I know now that Crusaders are bunch of tea partiers and republicans. When I was playing this game, I saw the crusaders were treating the poor people like crap. In this game, I help out the poor people and save them from getting killed. I know the crusaders didn’t care about anything but except for there own selves. They didn’t care about the poor and they care about anyone except their “Holy War”. They didn’t care about women. They use the women for only making babies. Sometimes they would kill women, too.

We’ve run across these kinds of themes in media before, in movies like That Thing You Do and School of Rock. We’ve also seen it in games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, but this little casual sim makes you the manager of an up-and-coming rock band from Baltimore.

This band has a blue-sy kind of sound, and even features an electric violin. You do actually get to hear their tracks when they play at more elite venues, and if you are a fan of Dave Matthews Band, you will really enjoy these guys, whose name you have to give them.
