Review: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III

I've been playing Warhammer tabletop for nearly 20 years, and I've seen what feels like hundreds of games based on the property come and go. Some stick with me, like Total War: Warhammer. Others fall by the wayside and are forgotten like Fi...   read

Relic releases a dev diary for Dawn of War III ahead of its open beta

I get the feeling that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III is going to be divisive to the fan base. A lot of people seem to be complaining about a supposed "dumbing down" of mechanics or how there isn't anything new on offer. I don't necessar...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

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...   read

Relic Entertainment is a studio best known for its strategy games, such as the Company of Heroes and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series, but that didn't stop the developer from knocking out of the park a project outside its typical wheelh...   read

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...   read

Dawn of War III will focus more on big battles and base building

Not only was that teaser building up to Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III as many of us had hoped, but the reveal trailer itself was badass. I'm so happy. Even if it is Space Marines, Orks, and Eldar again for the three-sided story campaign...   read

Five years later, Dawn of War II: Retribution adds the Necron Overlord

Five years of Dawn of War II: Retribution. My goodness. It doesn't feel like it has been then long at all, but then, anniversaries like this have a way of sneaking up on me. Relic and Sega were keeping track, at least. While there's no surp...   read

Impossible Creatures finally releases on Steam, 13 years after being announced

In gaming, a few days ago is considered ancient history. So, if Fallout 4 being released two days ago is now considered old news, what the hell do we call news from 2002? That’s pretty much the time when fish with legs were crawling o...   read
