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

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

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

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
