I got Hotline Miami 2 on a sale recently after hearing about a release date for the beta version of the level editor. I enjoyed the first game a lot, but didn't feel an urgent need to buy the second one when it came out. It's quite an intense game, and I honestly wasn't sure if I'd want to play more than was in the original - but the prospect of creating my own levels just to experiment with the game mechanics was appealing. The sequel offers some entertaining variety and a conclusion to the story, but it still almost overstayed its welcome for me.
Qvadriga is a game about Roman chariot racing - a very good game about chariot racing (not that there's a whole lot of competition for that title). Turn-based at heart, though with a real-time option in case you needed more pressure - I don't - it still captures the excitement and brutality of racing with an elegant set of rules that offer variety without needless complexity.
What's All this then?
I like making and writing about PC games - mostly strategy games. Expect after action reports, thoughts about design and gameplay, and maybe even a few prototypes.
