The PC port of Little King's Story is in a much better place now

Little King's Story? Great! A wonderful Wii game somewhat in the vein of Pikmin but with its own style and humor. Little King's Story on PC? That's another matter entirely. Summing up his assessment of the PC version, Patrick called it "pla...   read

Banner Saga 3 already met its funding goal

I don't know that any of us were expecting Stoic to not bring in $200,000 to help fund development on The Banner Saga 3, but here's confirmation, about a week later: the studio has in fact done it. With that funding threshold out of the way...   read

The Fire Emblem mobile game will have a lot of familiar faces

Tomorrow's Nintendo Direct will feature multiple Fire Emblem titles

Without a doubt, the big surprise of last week's Nintendo Switch reveal event for me was Fire Emblem Warriors. I'm so into the game conceptually that even its bare-bones teaser trailer was enough to get my mind racing just thinking about th...   read

Dang, XCOM 2 is only $12 in this Humble Monthly deal

Yesterday's news of the Long War 2 mod reminded me that I failed to snag XCOM 2 at launch and, dumber yet, while it was discounted in recent end-of-year sales. But actually, that indecisiveness has paid off -- the alien-blastin', bad-luck-c...   read

Review: Planet Coaster

It feels very weird to me to be reviewing a coaster sim in 2016. I had just always thought that it was a genre left to the past, and I was pretty okay with that. The days of staying over a friend's house and laughing as we made drinks free ...   read

Poland joins Civilization VI and it's here to steal your tiles

Ah, Civilization VI. The game I love and, thankfully (for the sake of my free time and general well-being), I keep forgetting I have installed. "Don't believe its lies. It will eat your weekend." The so-called Winter 2016 Update is out thi...   read

Review: Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun

Thinking about stealth, a common image the mind conjures is that of a lone wolf slinking through the shadows and taking out threats one by one. Solid Snake and Sam Fisher generally work alone. Players control one man using skill and cunning...   read

Watch (a very much alive) Sean Bean's soothing voicework for Civilization VI

As if Sean Bean doesn't already joke about dying in nearly every one of his films, he makes a crack about being "replaced" in the next Civilization, creating a canon death for his character, the narrator. It's heartbreaking! More triumphant...   read

Civilization VI's fall update has a lot of changes

As a novice-at-best Civilization player, I tend not to get these games at launch. I know I'll enjoy them, but the discounts will eventually come and so too will updates and expansions. I'm usually not in a rush! With Civilization VI, though...   read

This War of Mine getting a retail release and some anniversary DLC
