Sentai studio sim Chroma Squad could be my XCOM replacement photo
Sentai studio sim Chroma Squad could be my XCOM replacement
by Steven Hansen

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.

Brawler Aztez is like Patapon x Madworld, coming to all consoles

Okay, not literally all. But PS4, Vita, Xbox One, and Wii U, following the initial Steam (PC/Mac/Linux) release. Action game savants may want to take particular note. Aztez looks great. It's a weird mix of conquest-focused s...

Giant mecha battle! Japanese Chroma Squad trailer is great

We heard about Chroma Squad last year and it looks great. It's one half Sentai studio management sim, one half tactical, turn-based battler. You buy better actors, special effects, answer fan mail and fight people. I like it...

Review: Shadowrun: Dragonfall photo
Review: Shadowrun: Dragonfall
by Alasdair Duncan

Shadowrun Returns was released last year after a successful Kickstarter campaign and seemed to please fans and backers alike. In our review, Fraser Brown commented on how the toolset provided with the game would provide plenty of content in the future, and whilst it has been well supported by modders, most fans were waiting patiently for the big expansion, Dragonfall

Dragonfall is an expansion in the old-school mold: it has a campaign that's equal to the length of the main Shadowrun story, a whole new setting and characters, and there's some nice refinements to the mechanics and structure. There's still some problems and frustrations but if you put up with them in the original Shadowrun, then Dragonfall will give you even more enjoyment.

Ex-Blizzard, Insomniac dev working on tactical, turn-based Duelyst

This game looks amazing. Duelyst, which I'm too in awe of to poke at the "y" in the title, started as a tabletop game that the team at newly formed Counterplay Games decided to turn into a videogame. That vision has come stu...

Ronimo announces Wii U-only Swords & Soldiers II

While I'm a huge Awesomenauts fan first and foremost, I also got a kick out of Ronimo Games' prior release, Swords & Soldiers. It is one of those sidescrolling real-time strategy titles where you send your troops to the ...

Former PixelJunk devs' Nova-111 looks real clever

The concept of "real-time" has begun bleeding into the otherwise turn-based world of Nova-111, a super-neat-looking game from ex-PixelJunk developers. I'd recommend watching this trailer to get a better handle on what that m...
