Tropico V is the latest installment in the series of city builder simulation games created by Haemimont Games. Since the very beginning of this construction and management game franchise, Tropico was loved by players and critics due to the fact, that while it was quite a complex strategic game, it never took itself very seriously. Even though the players decide on the fate of the entire island nation, build cities, manage the population and establish the government, the game is filled with dozens of jokes and caricatures of real nations, historical figures and events and even the satire character of the El Presidente, the player’s representative in Tropico game. With Tropico 5 Complete Collection (PC), you can be the El Presidente even longer and make your nation flourish and develop for many years.GameplayIn general, Tropico 5follows a similar premise as its predecessors. However, it should be noted that all the elements have been significantly upgraded since the first installment in the series. Once again, you're going to take control over a small city on the remote island. In this city construction and management simulation, your main aim is to make your little city to flourish.You can enjoy the campaign mode, where you are taken through the history of the island nation, divided into a set of missions connected with each other. Here you are not only going to create your own, powerful country but you are also going to learn how El Presidente was able to gain so much power in the beginning.There is also a sandbox mode where you can pick the era in which the game starts, generate the island, choose the starting money and even requirements to fulfill and play any type of scenario you want to.The game also introduces a multiplayer mode, which might be surprising for a tycoon title. However, in Tropico V it is possible to enjoy the sandbox, quick co-op scenarios, and even PvP. Furthermore, Tropico 5 also provides you with some RPG elements. You create your own El Presidente and his dynasty which can have up to 7 members. Each one of them has different traits which level up with each scenario and have a serious impact on the gameplay itself. For example, one of your characters might increase the effectiveness of all buildings while the other might raise your profits from mining.Plot of Tropico 5The plot presented in the single-player campaign, guide you through the career of the Caribbean island leader - El Presidente and all members of his dynasty. You start as a Governor of small island colony of the equivalent of the Britsh Empire in the game, chosen by Lord Oaksworth to take care of an island chosen by you, for a period of 4 years. Slowly, you're going to gain more power and each mission will make you deal with more problems.You'll be forced to defend your island from enemy forces, be accused of the assassination and even participate in the nuclear race during the cold war. Being El Presidente is a hard thing to do, but at the end of the century, your people may remember them as the national hero.CharactersAs it was mentioned before, Tropico series never took itself too seriously and the fifth game follows the same pattern. It is filled with crazy, over the top characters that besides the player character, include: Penultimo, the advisor and second-in-command to El Presidente, who is extremely loyal, but definitely not the brightest person in the world. Leon Kane, the friend and mentor of the player character and the main antagonist and leader of an organization known as The Order at the same time.Abraham Zweistein who is an obvious parody of one and only, Albert Einstein. And finally, there is Veronica Veneno, who symbolizes capitalism in its worst way. She is greedy and she exploits both the people and the environment. All these characters are so over the top, that you simply cannot take them seriously.ReceptionReception of Tropico 5from both players and critics in general have been very positive. As a good side of the game, reviewers usually points out the strategic aspect of the game, great humor, and interesting plot. The game has been seen as a very good continuation of the acclaimed Tropico series.Complete Collection containsBesides the basic version of the Tropico 5 game, the Complete Collection provides you with all the DLCs which are twelve expansion packs such as:Espionage,Generallisimo,Gone Green,Inquisition,Joint Venture,Mad World,Supervillain,Surfs Up!,T-Day,The Big Cheese,The Super Computer,Waterborne.

The player has a free choice on how to accomplish the mission's objectives. These objectives involve killing special targets, rescuing an ally, stealing items, etc. The heroes of Shadow Tactics are: Mugen – the team leader. He is a samurai who can engage the enemy in an open swordfight and lure them away with a bottle of alcohol;. Hayato – a ninja warrior, armed with a shuriken he can use to take down faraway opponents without alerting others. His other tool is a grappling hook, which he can use to get on the roofs of buildings;. Yuki - a young woman skilled with setting traps for unsuspecting enemies. She can use her flute to draw the attention of the guards;. Aiko – a kunoichi who uses her feminine wiles and geisha outfit to move unnoticed by most enemies, except the samurai. Her primary skill is distracting of the enemy with a friendly chat, followed by a stealth assassination;. Takuma – a skilled marksman; he uses a rifle and grenades as his primary weapons. His pet tanuki can be used as a distraction as well.. The story of five warriors In Japan, during the Edo period, a powerful Shogun manages to unify the country under his banner.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is another installment in a beloved series of tactical shooters, where your firepower is not as important as tactics and cooperation with your team. Many players admit that Six Siege created by Ubisoft, is less of a tactical shooter and more an action game, at least in comparison to other titles from the series.However, the tactical aspect is still one of the most important elements of the game. In R6S you cannot simply go gun blazing and take enemies head-on like it is often the case in other action shooters. If you are going to do so, then you will be killed in a matter of seconds. Keep that in mind before playing this game.Standard EditionAs the name suggests, it is the standard, classic version of the game. In comparison to the Starter Edition, you will be able to unlock operators much faster. Unlocking of one standard operator costs between 500 and 2000 points of Renown while in comparison in the Starter Edition you would need 12500. Besides that, they aren't many additional differences.GameplayAs it was mentioned before, the gameplay of Rainbow Six Siege is mostly a the mixture of a tactical shooter known from previous installments and an action game. There are different scenarios for both single player and multiplayer modes that include rescue the hostage, defuse the bomb, secure the area or a terrorist hunt.During the game, the player can use different characters that are mentioned above, for specific tasks in order to complete a mission. Choosing the unit line-up is often crucial in order to successfully complete a certain objective. Games take place in one of more than a dozen maps, depending on the game version. There are also tons of settings which you can modify and analyze before the fight even starts.The biggest focus of the game is the environmental destruction that enables players to interact or destroy objects or structures around them in order to secure better position and ultimately to finish the mission. The game also offers a very good multiplayer mode which enables gamers to compete against each other in PVP or PVE modes on various maps and scenarios.Game ModesRainbow Six offers multiple game modes and scenarios for both single player and multiplayer. As it was mentioned before, the majority of gameplay modes are designed for multiplayer. The Bomb is a mode which can be compared to a Counter-Strike match. One group is supposed to defuse the bomb, while the other makes sure it will detonate.Hostage, as the name suggests, is a game mode in which one group of players is supposed to save hostages which were taken and are held captive by the second team. It is much more tactical than the bomb mode. A single mistake might lead to the death of a hostage, which equals with a loss of the attacking team. Secure Area is a mode which can be compared to a variation of a king of the hill. One team needs to take control over a biohazard room and survive in it for a while.The second team obviously needs to stop them. Terrorist Hunt is probably the most interesting gameplay mode for both single and multiplayer. It is a PVE where players need to take on the terrorist group, known as The White Mask. In Terrorist Hunt, the Rainbow Six you are going to disarm bombs, eliminate threats and protect hostages all in one mode. It might sound simple but the White Mask consists of many hardened battle veterans that are going to use all your mistakes against you. Besides standard game modes, various DLC-s provide you with additional ones, and more maps to play at.Story and charactersRainbow Six Siege offers the player both an interesting single player campaign and a multiplayer mode. You can feel like a real anti-terrorist special force operative by being assigned a mission to complete from your supervisor. You either have to save the hostages, stop a terrorist assault or hunt down a rogue group that plans to start a third world war. Each mission is different are both a great way to get engaged in game’s story as well as polish your skills before you start your multiplayer experience.Members of Rainbow Six come from different special units from all over the globe such as SAS, FBI SWAT, GIGN, Spetsnaz and GSG 9. Each character, known as the operator in this game, has his own different abilities. For example, Smoke from SAS is a defender class who loves to use gas grenades to take control over the battlefield. Then, there is Ash, an FBI agent who is an attacker class equipped with M120 CREM that shoots breaching rounds. Last but not least is Rook from GIGN, a defender operator who can provide “Rhino” armor plates which increase the damage resistance of other members of the squad. As it can be seen, even among the same type of class, each character plays a different role depending on his abilities. This alone gives you countless advantages which you can use to overpower your enemies. Remember that your tactic is far more important than your firepower.ReceptionTom Clancy's R6 Siege for PC received mostly positive reviews from game critics as well as acclaim among the gamer community. Many players praised the game’s design, emphasis on tactics, teamwork and interaction with the surrounding environment as well as its great multiplayer mode. The unpredictability of each match, as well as the open-nature, were key factors in the success of the Six Siege multiplayer. Many players jointly agree that is actually the best online tactical shooter available on the market.

Batman Begins As a young boy, Bruce Wayne watched in horror as his millionaire parents were slain in front of him - a trauma that leads him to become obsessed with revenge. But the opportunity to avenge his parents' deaths is cruelly taken away from him by fate. Fleeing to the East, where he seeks counsel with the dangerous but honorable ninja cult leader known as Ra's Al-Ghul, Bruce returns to his now decaying Gotham City, which is overrun by organized crime and other dangerous individuals manipulating the system. Meanwhile, Bruce is slowly being swindled out of Wayne Industries, the company he inherited. The discovery of a cave under his mansion, along with a prototype armored suit, leads him to assume a new persona, one which will strike fear into the hearts of men who do wrong; he becomes Batman! In the new guise, and with the help of rising cop Jim Gordon, Batman sets out to take down the various nefarious schemes in motion by individuals such as mafia don Falcone, the twisted doctor/drug dealer Jonathan 'The Scarecrow' Crane, and a mysterious third party who is quite familiar with Wayne and waiting to strike when the time is right. Special Features: Inner Demons Comic Batman: The Journey begins Shaping Mind and Body Batman: The Tumbler Gotham City Rises Saving Gotham City Genesis of the Bat Confidential Files The Dark Knight Christopher Nolan returns to direct the follow up to his own 2005 blockbuster 'Batman Begins', with Christian Bale once again suited up as 'The Dark Knight'. Gotham City, previously a playground for organised crime and petty thieves, has been cleaned up under the ever watchful eye of Batman. With the continued help of Lt James Gordon (Gary Oldman) and determined District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman continues to round up the remaining criminals plaguing it. As the opening sequence quickly shows, a new threat has emerged. The Joker! Brought to life again, this time by the late Heath Ledger (Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner). With his eerie grin and wicked laugh, mixed with psychotic madness, he unleashes a new danger to the people of Gotham amidst all his chaos. As Batman struggles to bring the madman to justice, his alter-ego Bruce Wayne is caught in a love triangle as Rachel Dawes' (Maggie Gyllenhaal) relationship with Harvey Dent grows stronger. Knowing that Harvey may be the 'White Knight' required to bring continued peace to Gotham, Batman hopes that for the last time his skills and arsenal of equipment will be needed to stop the crazed villain before the city falls back into turmoil! - (Michael Woodhall) Special Features: Gotham Uncovered - How Christopher Nolan and his team developed the new Bat-suit and Bat-pod and composer Hans Zimmer musically characterized The Joker's reign of chaos Behind the Film - Including stunt staging, filming in IMAX and the new bat suit and bat pod The Dark Knight IMAX Scenes - View these 6 action-packed sequences Gotham Tonight - 6 episodes of Gotham Cable's premier news programme The Galleries - Poster art and production stills The Dark Knight Rises It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive.

For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile.

Emerging from France's catastrophic 1940 defeat like a bedraggled and rather sinister phoenix, the French State – better known to history as Vichy France or the Vichy Regime after its spa-town capital, stands in history as a unique and bizarre creation of German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler's European conquests. A patchwork of paradoxes and contradictions, the Vichy Regime maintained a quasi-independent French nation for some time after the Third Reich invasion until the Germans decided to include it in their occupation zone. Headed by a French war hero of World War I, Marshal Philippe Petain, and his later Prime Minister Pierre Laval, Vichy France displayed strong right-wing, conservative, and authoritarian tendencies. Nevertheless, it never lapsed fully into fascism until the Germans arrived to reduce its role to little more than a mask over their own dominion. Petain carried out several major initiatives in an effort to counteract the alleged decadence of modern life and to restore the strength and virtues of the French "race". Accordingly, he received willing support from more conservative elements of society, even some factions within the Catholic Church. Following Case Anton - the takeover of the unoccupied area by the Germans - native French fascist elements also emerged. While the French later disowned the Vichy government with considerable vehemence, evidence such as fairly broad-based popular support prior to Case Anton suggests a somewhat different story. The Petain government expressed one facet of French culture and thought. Its conservative, imperialistic nature did not represent the widespread love of "liberty, fraternity, and equality" also deeply ingrained in French thinking, but neither did it constitute a complete divergence from a national history that produced such famous authoritarians as Louis XIV and Napoleon Bonaparte. 1.
