The next in the line of Dragon Age games from BioWare and EA is that of Inquisition. This picks up after the video Dawn of the Seeker and the events of Kirkwall in Dragon Age 2. It was highly anticipated and for good reason. The storyline is compelling and interesting enough to make you want to follow. The world is hugely massive and easy to get lost in. This is not a game that you are going to just sit down and beat in a day’s time. You will spend hours on this one and that is not a bad thing at all.

TV Farm is one of the most fun farming sims I have come across in a very long time. You have a small crew working with you, the producer, director, and technician. You get upgrades along the way to boost production as you create new products for various seasons and holidays. You are working under time limits, but they are broken down by grades of gold, silver, and bronze, so long as you get under one of the wires, you still qualify for star bonuses to get upgrades even quicker.

Heroes of Kalevala is so not the typical Match 3 game. This involves so much more than popping matching tiles. The story is, your tribe has been suffering from a drought, and the shaman throws the bones. The wise elder deems it is time to move on to more fertile shores, and a team of settlers is sent to the land of Kalevala to set new farms and colonies. Through this game, new villages are built, beautification takes place to ensure the colonists’ happiness, but not all is good. An evil witch, Louhi, and her nasty crow familiar are set on kicking out the newcomers. Heroes and gods are on your side, as they will help you defeat her nasty little bird as it tries to burn down the borders of your puzzles in every level. Each level brings on new challenges, locks, blocks, ice, but they also bring on new tools, like small and large bombs. You have warriors that can throw hammers and such to take out random blocks, and an amazing sea god that will flood the tiles to take them out, which that nasty crow is none too happy about. This addictive game can keep you going for hours, wanting to know what happens next. You will want to keep building their villages, and see who else might show up to help your villagers or hurt them. As I did not really have much time to test out Heroes of Kalevalaproperly, I will let you know that so far as I have seen, Ahti, the sea god, is one your most effective tools in taking out the tiles and Louhi’s familiar. There may be a revisit to this game later, because I know I will be playing it again. It’s just too good to pass up.
This is not a typical match 3 puzzle game. There is some adventure going on here when your castaway find himself on a tropical island. Vesuvia’s match 3 puzzles take you on a path to search for items to help him search not only for a way to get home, but to find the clues to a mystery of those whom has been on this island before he got here. From the beaches to the jungles, your puzzles will take you along, featuring creatures and items normally found in the area, such as colourful insects, birds, monkeys, and tropical fruits. In some puzzles you move along the map to find torches to light your path, and some don’t need them. Other items are there to help, like a raft to get you over water hurdles, bug spray to get you through hordes of biting insects, traps, dynamite, and other helpful objects you can gain by filling up the color bottles. This is an addictive game, with a good storyline that keeps you curious about what will happen to your castaway next, plus who or what he might encounter along the way. Take a trip to Vesuvia right now, and just try not to get caught up in the fun.
