Shen's Last Gift is XCOM 2's Last DLC (for now)

Ready for more XCOM 2 DLC? I wasn't, frankly speaking, because whenever a new pack drops I get an irresistible urge to start again fresh. At this rate, I'll never see plasma weapons! And yet, the packs keep coming, with the newest one,...   read

Civilization VI's America will rule the world with blue jeans and pop music

My first encounter with President Roosevelt in Civilization VI went about as well as I could've hoped -- he had his people bake me pies! -- but I'm fairly certain the gift was a part of some Machiavellian scheme. Once his military might gr...   read

Review: The Banner Saga 2

Few games have left an impression on me like The Banner Saga. Most games finish with a bang, a giant climax where evil is vanquished, peace is returned, and victory is savored. But Banner Saga, with its tale of weary viking nomads trudging ...   read

Warhammer is the fastest-selling Total War game

Sometimes, I wonder if we aren't collectively burned out by the incessant Games Workshop adaptations, but then something like Dawn of War III is announced or Total War: Warhammer comes along and clearly, we aren't. I'm more than happy to pu...   read

I teamed up with Teddy Roosevelt in Civilization VI and he gave me pies

Does that look like a man you'd dare cross? There was a brief moment, after Theodore Roosevelt introduced himself, that I contemplated turning my back on his tentative kindness. The plan, as I imagined it: I'd try my best to act neutral on ...   read

Review: Total War: Warhammer

This War of Mine: The Board Game captures the despair of the video game

Most video games about war focus on the glory of combat, vanquishing an evil foe through prowess and cunning. This is even truer for tabletop games; I can't think of many games about war that aren't about how cool it is to dominate opponent...   read
