It's a good time to be a fan of Star Control

There has been a surprising amount of Star Control news lately and it's good news, at that. If you missed it, the original creators of Star Control II -- Fred Ford and Paul Reiche III, whose studio Toys for Bob has understandably kept busy ...

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle's new DLC is intimidating

Every week or so I feel like I hear someone else casually mention they've full-cleared Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle. If that describes you and you have gaming time to spare before Super Mario Odyssey monopolizes your Nintendo Switch for t...

Banner Saga 3 sure looks pretty

Oh, right! Banner Saga 3 is happening. That tidbit slipped my mind in the months since the Kickstarter wrapped up, but today's video -- a key art trailer -- is a pleasant reminder of what's to come. Well, maybe pleasant isn't the right word...

Wargroove's map editor sounds fantastic

It's been too long since we've last touched on Wargroove, a turn-based tactical game from Chucklefish that should really speak to fans of Fire Emblem and Advance Wars. I know I'm not the only one around here who's super into this idea and h...

Praise the lord! Civilization VI gets a religion update

While Civilization VI is an excellent game, its not without some flaws. The most noticeable shortcoming as with the religious victory path. Not only was the combat pretty brain dead, but it was far too easy to amass a small convent of pries...

Review: Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

Review: Kingdom: New Lands

Kingdom takes strategy and distills it down to its simplest systems. There's one currency to keep track of, it's either going out to expand and upgrade capability, or it's coming in from workers and exploration. The original game had one go...

Mario + Rabbids is the Switch's best-selling third-party game

Contrary to what we've been led to believe, the Rabbids are perfectly welcome in the Mushroom Kingdom. Their invasion hasn't been chaotic and destructive, but prosperous instead. Turns out merging the two wasn't a bad idea at all. According...

Wine-making sim Terroir looks delightful

Confession: I spent a solid 10 minutes researching terms that wine enthusiasts and sommeliers use to describe alcoholic grape juice. I don't drink wine unless it comes in a cardboard box and up until today, I thought everything Paul Giamatt...

No Heroes Allowed returns this October

The wacky dungeon strategy series What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord!? was my absolute jam on PlayStation Vita, and it's a pleasant surprise whenever a new entry is greenlit. No Heroes Allowed VR is coming up next, and while it's a nich...

Review: Tooth and Tail

Have you ever played StarCraft on the N64? Of course you haven't what a silly question. I have, and it is awful. That being said, the idea of playing a local multiplayer version of an amazing real-time strategy (RTS) game was too good ...

Dawn of War III gets mod and Steam Workshop support

Dawn of War III didn't have the best fan reception at launch. While I thought it was actually a pretty solid campaign, the multiplayer drew too many comparisons to MOBAs and the lack of mod support put a lot of people in a sour mood. While ...

Another look at the Advance Wars-inspired Tiny Metal

We're getting not one but (at least!) two notable games inspired by the almighty Advance Wars. I'm still desperate for Intelligent Systems to return to the series, but until then, this duo should keep me busy. Chucklefish has its fantasy tu...
