Wargaming is bringing back Master of Orion

The original Master of Orion was before my time but, like Myst, the sci-fi strategy title was one of my uncle's favorites. He'd leave his laptop unattended and I'd screw around with it, failing miserably to explore, expand, or accomplish m...   read

Civilization: Beyond Earth getting an expansion this fall

Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth came out last year, and although I loved it, a lot of the series' hardcore fans picked it apart as being less complex than past entries. Though it doesn't nearly address every complaint, the newly anno...   read

Affordable Space Adventures is the Wii U experience I imagined in 2012

When Nintendo first unveiled the Wii U, my mind raced with ideas for games that could be created with the two-screen interface. A lot of the cool stuff that the DS did could be transferred to the big screen. Better yet, titles like those th...   read

Isometric horror game Stasis reminds us it still exists

Tales of Cosmos is a point-and-click starring a space corgi

Sure, there is also a chimpanzee named Professor Gagayev, but we all know that Perseus the Dog is the star here. He's got valor! He reminds me of Missile from Ghost Trick, except I'm pretty sure Perseus is a corgi rather than a Pomeranian....   read

Dreadnought's huge spaceships are a fairly untapped idea, but still feel familiar
