Weapons Release

is an effort to talk about a particular niche of games. We aim for some wit, deep insight, and most of all the honest truth. If a game is crap we intend to let everyone know. This site was previously known as TheStrategyGamer but it has changed to distance itself from a similarly named and genre’d site.

For most PC games the money isn’t the issue. Add in a Steam sale and you can get many titles for $10. The problem is sinking in hours of time to realize a game is either bad, incomplete, buggy or all three.

Apps suffer from a similar disease. Tons of content, not much variety, and even less depth. It’s a rare gem of a game that keeps one glued to a phone.

Tabletop and board games tend to have some more polish, and with them comes a high price. Is it worth it?

We’ll tackle AAA titles, Grognardy niche games, a cat anime game for iOS and everything in between. It might be a nerdy model set, or maybe some 28mm painted peoples, hell, you’ll likely see some 6mm knights traipsing about.


There may be affiliate links and advertising interspersed about. But regardless of all that, if a game sucks, we will tell it like it is. Without honesty we have nothing.
