REVIEWS Loadout Review
What do you really expect of a shooter these days? Loadout probably already has it somewhere in gobs of gameplay, but you won’t hear me saying it’s worth your time.

Dokuro (PC) Review
Dokuro makes the jump from handheld to PC, but does it help or hinder this unusual platformer?

City Buildings - Police Station Reference Guide

Criminals enjoy robbing shops blind, embezzling funds, and setting fires, which are all terrible things for a budding city. The trouble is that the longer criminals are out there, the more brazen they become and the harder and longer they are to be rehabilitated.

That's where the police comes in. Patrol cars can stop criminals in their tracks and ensure that criminals are processed and reenter society well-behaved. On your part, you can prevent criminals from every appearing by making sure that young Sims get an education, getting rid of abandoned buildings, and providing enough jobs so that people don't resort to crime to pay the bills.
