Sentai studio sim Chroma Squad could be my XCOM replacement

I played a lot of XCOM last year, between running through Enemy Unknown late and Enemy Within. The blend of on the ground, turn-based combat and back home base management simulation hooked me. Chroma Squad is basically that. Except you're directing a Sentai with actors in colorful spandex dancing around lots of explosions and turtle and plant monsters. It's pretty great.

Preview: Turning a cave into a home in A Game of Dwarves

I may be a bit short, definitely hairy, and somewhat stocky, but I'm also quite claustrophobic. I'm like a dwarf paradox. I do love digging out caves and carving out dungeons and fortresses, though, and I've been doing plenty...

Revisiting the Kerbal Space Program

GDC: Reviving MechWarrior with the CryEngine 3

I was a pretty big fan of MechWarrior back in the day. I kind of have a thing for mechs, and I thought it was really awesome. What little kid wouldn't want to blow up giant robots with lasers and missiles fired from other gia...
