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

Viking settlement builder Northgard seems like the good stuff

Shortly into starting up this trailer for Northgard, a city-building real-time strategy game about viking voyagers, I hit pause to see if it would make it out in 2016 unlike so many other games getting announced this time of the year. It w...   read

Meet Valkyria: Azure Revolution's Five Grave Sinners

While I am still somewhat bummer that the Valkyria Chronicles spinoff, Valkyria: Azure Revolution, is more action-RPG than strategy RPG, well, there is no "but" or "while." I'm still bummed. A combination of an update of Sega's official gam...   read

Arcadian Atlas is just the Final Fantasy Tacticsiest thing

Just last night, I was chatting it up with the Podtoid crew and we got onto the topic of Final Fantasy Tactics. That's not unusual; I think we mentioned it last episode too. Look, I still think about it a lot, nearly 20 years later. I'm not...   read

See just how much the gameplay has changed in Valkyria: Azure Revolution

It's been clear from the get-go that Valkyria: Azure Revolution is a spinoff from the Valkyria Chronicles series that graced the PS3 and PSP. It is much more anime-y, there are overwrought swords and melee combat, as well as this smaller p...   read

XCOM 2 looks quite nice outdoors

Sometimes, I just want to look at the world of XCOM free of distraction. It's quite pleasant, in fact, when you aren't obsessively worrying about the many ways in which your squad can and likely will perish. Or how your never-big-enough org...   read

First shots of Valkyria: Azure Revolution and the PS4 remaster

Tom Clancy's EndWar Online closed beta starts today, runs through November

The Walking Dead: No Man's Land features tactical zombie killing

Oh! A game based on The Walking Dead that focuses on tactical zombie survival? Sure, sounds great. Or maybe it doesn't technically sound great, as Norman Reedus really hams up the voice work in this trailer, going overboard with both the gr...   read

Wargaming is bringing back Master of Orion

Dibs on demons! Swords & Soldiers II hits Wii U on May 21

I've got a soft spot for sidescrolling strategy games like Swords & Soldiers. Maybe you do too. While they typically aren't as deep as their 3D contemporaries, they scratch a certain itch and can be hard to put down once you get in the ...   read
