Hawken is a free to play Mech FPS developed by Adhesive Games and published by Meteor entertainment.
If you’ve never heard of Adhesive Games, don’t fret, it’s because they haven’t developed anything else.

Menu

Upon first launching the game I have to say, the menu music blew me away. It is rare for me to notice the music in the menus, but in Hawken’s case it just drew me in something fierce.
Speaking of menu’s, Hawken has lots of options in the settings menu, more so than what you sometimes see in AAA-titles.

What is Warthunder?

Developer: Gaijin entertainment

Warthunder is a multiplayer combat flight sim, with variable levels of realism. For anyone who has ever played Birds of Steel, the UI of Warthunder will immediately be recognizable. This is quite simply because in its current state Warthunder is a modified for multiplayer and free to play, pc port of BoS.

This is not a bad thing, far from it, BoS was a highly enjoyable WWII combat flight sim for the PS3, which I enjoyed immensely. Sadly at the time there were not too many people flying multiplayer, and the game wasn’t really intended for extensive multiplayer gaming.
Warthunder is quite the opposed in this regard, because it is a die-hard multiplayer title, with next to no singleplayer components.

Total war: Rome II (TW: R II) has been out for three weeks now, and I think I’ve sunk about 80ish hours into it at this point, so I can immediately tell you it’s compelling.

TW: R II is as you might expect a Total War game set between 250BC-150AD. Much like its predecessor, you can play the campaign as one of the 3 main families of the Roman Empire, the Brutii, the Scipii, or the Julii. Unlike the preview TW: R game, you can now also choose to play as Carthage, Egypt, various tribes of Gauls, and if you were lucky enough to preorder, as the Greeks.

Tomb Raider (2013) is a reboot of the popular Tomb Raider franchise, developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. The reboot features a more culturally-based Lara Croft exploring a mysterious island that she and the rest of her anthropological team are shipwrecked on. The island hosts a variety of dangerous secrets that reveal themselves as the game progresses, laying out a complex historical narrative for the island that Lara and her friends find themselves immersed in.
