Tropico 5 off to the best start in the series

Tropico 5 is out on PC (unless you're waiting for the US retail release of June 17) and it's been the best launch in the series, "with worldwide sales reaching over six figures." It was big in Germany and the UK. Xbox 360 and Mac versions are due out this summer with a PS4 version to follow in fall.

My Tomodachi Life is just as strange as I am  photo
My Tomodachi Life is just as strange as I am
by Brittany Vincent

The allure of a digital life is what inevitably led me to become much less of an internet hermit during my adolescence. There's something to be said about reinventing yourself from the ground up, whether you're just altering your appearance or taking on a new personality entirely. My avatars and digital representations of myself are usually grounded in reality, except they're always cuter, thinner, or a lot cooler than the real me.

That's part of why I was drawn to the bizarre, yet wholly irresistible charm of Tomodachi Life. It's colorful, quirky, and more than a little nonsensical, and as my time with the painfully short Tomodachi Life: Move-In Version drew to a close, I was left with one thought lingering in my head: why can't I just go ahead and purchase the full version now?

Arma 3 sales cross 1 million

We're always talking about DayZ sales -- now over 2 million -- but the game that made DayZ possible, Arma, is quietly doing well in its own right for developer Bohemia. Arma 3 has just crossed one million sold. Bohemia boss Marek Spanel announced the milestone on Twitter and provided a visual roadmap for the next two years of Arma 3. It includes a major expansion and helicopter and marksmen DLC.
