Real Time Strategy

Some people have fond memories of The Bitmap Brothers' real-time strategy game Z. I do not. Never played it! It's returning to PC with "a faithful and thoroughly modern reworking" on Steam, set for release tomorrow. Sounds a ...
For better or worse, Fable is one of the staple series for Xbox consoles. Since its beginning as a relatively simple action-RPG, it has seen some entries go off in various directions. Fable Legends is another game that takes ...

One of the major aspects of Grey Goo that's likely to set it apart from other real-time strategy games is the inclusion of the titular Goo -- a race of nanites that can form into and break off from an amorphous blob. Whe...
If I were going to get into Company of Heroes 2 at this point, I'd likely just wait for a Steam sale, but options are appreciated. On June 24, Relic Entertainment will launch a standalone multiplayer release for its World Wa...

This Age of Mythology: Extended Edition trailer is essentially a recap of the features we covered yesterday but it's still worth seeing the updated game in motion. The original Ensemble Studios title released way back in 200...

Hearing Blizzard talk about the Heroes of the Storm alpha yesterday renewed my interest in the game, leading me to this, a commentated match that serves as a nice introduction. Even as someone who doesn't play many MOBAs, I ...
The "online team brawler" Heroes of the Storm has been offering beta sign-ups for quite some time now. First things first, though: the game needs to hit alpha. Blizzard is inviting "a very limited number of players [in the Un...
Even before Age of Empires and its sequel made it to Steam, I had been longing for Age of Mythology to see a release on Steam, or GOG.com, or anywhere. I know you feel me. A developer stream on Twitch has hinted at Age of Myt...
No, it's not a ploy to trick people into thinking they're buying Titanfall. Titan Invasion is a collection of two indie PC games; the Space Invaders-styled Titan Attacks!, which won me over with its well-done trailer (above)...
It's been three years, but one of my favorite mobile strategy titles, Legendary Wars, has finally come to Android, via the Google Play Store. In this RTS-RPG hybrid you directly control an ever growing army of knights, wizar...
In his review of Total War: Rome II, our own Josh Tolentino was left unhappy at the buggy state of the game but was happy with the level of historical accuracy displayed. I wonder if he would have docked the game an extra poi...

Those of you playing Diablo III via either the Battle.net desktop client or the game's launcher may, from this week, notice a 6GB background download initiate. That's quite big, and for good reason, because that download...

Company of Heroes 2 will be getting a free content update, that will include the awaited World Builder that will let players create their own multiplayer maps. The update will also add two new multiplayer maps and four n...
We'd like more Command & Conquer -- without the hooks of free-to-play digging into our skin, if at all possible. I guess it's not. Electronic Arts has canceled the new C&C, which has been playable in an alpha capacity...
If you were looking for a heartwarming story, you can look no further. The Natural Selection 2 community, not the development team, has decided to host a tournament. However, this is more than just an online round robin...
Picture, in your mind's eye, a testudo. If you're up on your Roman history, you'll know that I'm referring to that ancient Roman formation in which soldiers tightly align their shields to protect themselves from every an...
