Review: Tahira: Echoes of the Astral Empire

Two of my favorite games of all time are strategy games: Final Fantasy Tactics and Shining Force II. I have such fond memories of these titles, and others like them, from when I was growing up. I'm always chomping at the bit to sink my...   read

I played Endless Space 2 and hot damn are those Battlestar Galactica fights cool-looking

I'm not a strategy game guy, but that might change with Endless Space 2. If that's enough for you to check out and look for another preview by someone better-versed in 4X games, I'll still love you (but don't let the doorstructoid hit your ...   read

Pit People is probably the weirdest game yet from The Behemoth

I wasn't all that interested in a strategy game from The Behemoth. They generally excel in more high-octane twitch genres, so when they decided to branch out with Pit People I was lukewarm to the idea. But after playing the beta that w...   read

Good luck getting past Gandhi in Civilization VI

For years, Mahatma Gandhi has struck fear in the hearts of Civilization players as a nuke-amassing warlord. He seems like a pleasant-enough guy at first -- someone who doesn't resort to violence, much less violence on a nuclear scale -- bu...   read

The Behemoth is running a beta for its weird strategy RPG soon

The Behemoth is taking a crack at turn-based strategy with Pit People, a game that, like the studio's prior work (Castle Crashers, BattleBlock Theater), is silly and best played in co-op. One day you won't have to hear it from me -- you'll...   read

Review: Worms W.M.D

Team17 is in a precarious spot with the Worms series. If it deviates too much, it's chastised for straying too far from the proven formula. If it doesn't offer anything new, it doesn't justify its existence in a world where a million W...   read

Fantastic sci-fi 4x board game Eclipse is coming to PC

One of 2011's hottest board games was Eclipse: New Dawn for the Galaxy. It blended classic space 4X gameplay with a European-style board game mechanic governing the economy. I was fortunate enough to get a copy during its initial print run,...   read

Review: StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops - Mission Pack 2 + Mission Pack 3

A lot of people don't want StarCraft II to end. There was, after all, a 12-year gap between sequels, so bringing about a finality of sorts to the package that started with Wings of Liberty in 2010 is a scary prospect. But it's not...   read
