Dawn of War III's multiplayer is a bit underwhelming

I can’t say I’ve ever been a particularly big fan of real-time strategy games' multiplayer portions. I know that sounds crazy (seeing as how StarCraft is almost a national sport in Korea), but I like devising tactics and executi...

Total War: Warhammer II gets a surprise announcement

When I saw an announcement for Total War: Warhammer II, I thought some websites were doing April Fool's a bit early. I could swear the first title came out just last year and I was right! I suppose instead of letting the hype die down from ...

Review: Neo Atlas 1469

Dawn of War III is looking better and better

Enough of the single-faction drip-fed trailers: this latest video for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War pits the Eldar against the Space Marines and the Orks in large-scale skirmishes, and the end result just plain looks cool. I'm no Eldar pla...

New Dynasty Warriors game is less bashing, more clicking

Dynasty Warriors has been going for about as long as Japan itself. You are basically an anime samurai superhero, running around slashing a bajillion dudes who stand around waiting to take it like the masochists they are. The latest ent...

Fan experiment shows how cool Red Alert 2 could be in VR

I've seen virtual reality developers convincingly achieve a sort of "living board game" effect with strategy games before, but not quite like this. That tablet interface for base-building is new to me. This proof-of-concept from creator &A...

Dang, the Civilization VI launch trailer is really good

Rarely do launch trailers feature actually launches, but Civilization VI's does. That's far from the only thing it has working in its favor, though. It's an extremely well-executed video and you should take two minutes to watch it. Because...

Review: Gotta Protectors

There are a lot of video games these days. Perhaps too many. Between the PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Vita, 3DS, Steam, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, iPhone, Android, Apple TV, Fire TV, and the Dreamcast, it can be easy to miss a game or two. Or three. O...

The Eldar look like a real nuisance in Dawn of War III

To date, Relic has focused on the Space Marine side of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, but that's only one of the playable factions in the campaign. We'll also get to command the resourceful Orks and the oh-so-pesky Eldar. It's now the l...

It's been a long wait, but Dawn of War III is shaping up well

It's no secret that I've been happy about Relic's revival of the Dawn of War series amid the countless other Warhammer 40,000 video game adaptations materializing on a now-yearly basis. There's so gosh darn many of 'em! And, aside from a dr...

PC Port Report: Little King's Story

I've heard people clamoring about Little King's Story ever since its release in 2009. "It's a great Pikmin-esque experience!" and "It's so cute and charming, you gotta play it!" they'd say. I'm not exactly sure why I didn't get around ...

Ooh, Little King's Story is headed to PC next week

Wish there were more Pikmin-style games (or that Nintendo would at least acknowledge the existence of Pikmin 4 again)? Well, did you ever get around to playing Little King's Story? It's not to be missed. As of next week, it'll be even easi...

See Dawn of War III's return to big battles and base building

We've had some clips here and there, but this narrated mission (an extension of what was shown at E3) is our first proper look at the gameplay of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III. Watching this 12 minutes or so of footage, it's apparent R...

Review: The Battle Cats POP!

Right now on my iPhone, I have roughly 22 free-to-play games. I don't take my 3DS or Vita with me when I leave the house, so whenever I find myself out-and-about with a moment of downtime I always like to grab a few minutes of Tap My Katama...

Review: Dungeons 2

Dungeons 2 is a heart-breaker. It has a lot of charm, some ambitious ideas, and a genuinely fun dungeon builder buried somewhere deep inside it. If it focused on its strengths, I could see it being a great, laid back entry in the dungeon-bu...
