As the end of the election is upon us, I thought it would be fun to take a look and see how the current statistics of player data were going in The Political Machine 2016. We have ‘Exit Polls,’ which consist of data that we collect from the game on things such as what candidates people are playing as, what party is winning in games, what issues are deciding the wins, and more.

You can see all the data here.

So lets take a look and see where we’re at with this data at the ...

Since the last edition of The Political Machine 2016 weekly stats, we’ve had a lot of developments in the primaries. It will be interesting to see the effects it has had on the game. The big primary in South Carolina for the democrats happened recently and Hillary Clinton easily took that state. Super Tuesday saw wins for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Ted Cruz. Subsequent primaries had Bernie Sanders picking up Michigan from Hillary, and various other states going to b...

Recently, Stardock released The Political Machine 2016, which lets you run your own political campaign and see if you have what it takes to win the Presidency of the United States. Besides being a fun game to play, it also has a cool Metaverse feature that takes some of the data from the games and lets us view various stats, such as the top winning candidates.

See the 'Exit Polls' here.

Last week during the New Hampshire primary, I made a quick post about the top two winning c...

We have a good post going about what games you played in 2015, so lets continue and find out what games you are looking forward to in 2016. While it's still early in the year, I have just a few I'm looking to grab.

Hitman - I've been a fan of the series for a while, and although I'm not sure about their release method, I have already pre-ordered.

Ashes of the Singularity - I mentioned this in the other thread as I've enjoyed it even in Early Access, and I'm excited ...
