Stronghold and its follow-up, Stronghold Crusader, are more than ten years old. Time for a high-def re-release? That's what developer Firefly Studios has in mind! Due out November 1, 2012 are remastered versions of these beloved PC strategy games.

They will support more modern resolutions -- up to 2560x1600, specifically -- and a new "HD battlefield view" which allows players to see the entire map on a single screen. Crusader HD contains content found in the Stronghold Warchest and Stronghold Crusader Extreme, such as the 10,000-unit cap, more missions, and special Tactical Powers.

It's been years and years since I've played any of this stuff, but I want to believe that it holds up fairly well. No price point or screenshots were given, but we do know these two titles will see a release on GOG.com, Amazon, GetGamers, and elsewhere. They can't possibly be worse than the current installments, at any rate.

Behold Studios' Chroma Squad is about managing a brand new sentai television series and, being an in-depth parody, it of course draws inspiration from real-life shows, including -- but far from limited to -- Power Rangers. In...more

To dye for: Invisible Inc. is my kind of strategy-stealth game

A chasm in stealth games tends to be player skill and the supposed skills of super sleuth avatars. You're often eased into the situation, your lack of skill assumed, or you just fumble your way through -- especially with the ...more

Oh man, I need Halfway in my life right now

I already liked Chucklefish. The indie developer best known for making Starbound has gone on to act as a publisher for smaller teams with great ideas. The studio has helped to release Hopoo Games' Risk of Rain, and is p...more
