Step one: Play Space Marine
There's a lot to love in this Humble Weekly Bundle of Relic games, but I have to give a special shout out to Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Years later, I'm still amazed it turned out as well as it did. Satisfying shooting, ...
There are also a bunch of separate bundles if only certain things interest you
Sega is sailing onto Steam with sales this sweekend.
On this page you'll find a general list of things on sale. It is deceptive because a $2.50 Jet Set Radio or a $6.80 Valkyria Chronicles share as much screen space as the "S...
Featuring the likes of Alpha Protocol, Typing of the Dead, and Binary Domain
Over the next seven days you'll be able to save on a wide array of Sega-published PC games in a Humble Weekly Sale. A nice mix of new and old titles, the deal is broken down into three tiers.
You can name your price for a bun...

Wring 'em out
THQ is totally bankrupt, but Sega is still suing them for $941,710.93, to be exact. That is money from Steam pre-orders of Company of Heroes 2.
If you're curious, these Delaware court documents lay it all out. Almo...
Winter is here
Company of Heroes 2 comes off strong with its new campaign, and it packs an impressive amount of extra features. Standing on its own, it is an impressive real-time strategy game, but there are people who want to know what mak...

Quality, not quantity
Sega's bringing five announced titles to E3 2013 and the big one is undoubtedly Sonic Lost World. It's especially weird for me to say that having played few if any modern Sonic titles outside of the wonderful All-Stars Racing...
Play it for free while you can
Company of Heroes 2 has launched into open beta, so from now until June 18 you can check out the multiplayer and coop. The best news about the open beta is that if you play it a lot, and decide to buy the game later, you'll g...
The latest look at Company of Heroes 2 shows off just how action packed this real time strategy game is. There's action, explosions, and death all around you in the battlefield. There's so much action here that the trailer even says you should check this one out before you play "the next big FPS." Oh, snap!
Company of Heroes 2 will be out on June 25 for the PC.
RTS sequel will arrive next month, comrade
I'm really grateful that Sega has picked up Company of Heroes 2 after THQ's collapse. The original was a great real-time strategy title, one that I had most of my fun with in multiplayer more than the single-player. This tra...
This red star shines pretty bright with all of its goodies
Good news for fans of the Company of Heroes 2 series as now you have a great reason to pick up the physical copy in June. Along with a snazzy steelbook, you also get a Czar's wealth of extra content.
Right off the bat, player...

Among other digital trinkets
Those who pre-order Company of Heroes 2 before the real-time strategy title launches this June will get a number of bonuses, including a Theatre of War mini-campaign. Seemingly unfinished right now, this extra spot of single-...
Second beta phase will be more inclusive
It's nice to hear that Relic Entertainment is still plugging away at development on Company of Heroes 2. Leading up to the full June 25 release, the studio will soon hit the obligatory "closed beta" milestone. Open first on A...
Both in North America and Europe
Company of Heroes 2 has been set for a June 25 release date in both North America and Europe. Have to say, I'm really happy for Relic Entertainment on today's news. Things were shaky thanks to the THQ fallout, but I think Rel...
From wrestlers to panda-suit-wearing sociopaths
When assessing a publisher's impact on the industry, we tend to focus on the highs rather than consistency. THQ was anything but consistent, putting out Nintendo DS shovelware, rushed licensed games, and taking part in one of...
So many screens
To accompany our preview of multiplayer in Company of Heroes 2, Relic Entertainment and THQ have a little video that shows off the variety of commanders and troops they'll be able to lead in this anticipated sequel.
Fight well, comrades
Dynamic weather hazards, TrueSight, and now a progressive leveling system are the three pillars Relic is building Company of Heroes 2 on.
While we've talked at length about these first two elements, the leveling system is what caught my eye the most on this third go around, taking more than a few cues from the Call of Duty series.
I'll never get tired of seeing tanks slip into the frigid depths
This first entry in a series of developer diaries for Company of Heroes 2 covers most of the major talking points new to the real-time strategy game, from its brutal weather conditions which drastically affect troops, the ab...
Movie makers scrabble pitifully for ANY existing IP
The film industry has become a pathetic hive of regurgitation and desperation lately, as a world of competing entertainment drives producers to commission endless reboots and sequels -- anything that an audience will instant...
Huge shock as people buy things that are cheap!
Despite proving controversial, THQ's "Humble Bundle" has raked in $3.3 million since it launched last Thursday, as over 580,000 customers take the chance to snap up games for as little as $1.00. According to GI.biz, share pri...
Don't shoot the messenger
In reporting its second-quarter fiscal 2013 results, THQ announced the delay of South Park: The Stick of Truth. Originally scheduled for March 5, 2013, the Obsidian Entertainment-developed role-playing game is now looking to ...
Mother Russia has never looked so cold
Playing Company of Heroes 2 at PAX was a trippy experience. Hamza previously covered the game and hit the major points worth highlighting, but I still wanted to share my thoughts on the highly anticipated sequel as someone wh...
