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

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

The Wii U eShop release of Pikmin is a good excuse for a replay

Pikmin might look and feel a little dated compared to its stellar sequel, but heck yes I'd be down to play it again with those well-matched Wii Remote controls. Nintendo is bringing the Wii version of its precious 2001 real-time strategy ga...   read

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is September's sleeper hit

It can feel like there are as many games about existing and exploring the final frontier -- space! -- as there are stars in the sky. Because of this, Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander flew under my radar at first. But after binging on it all we...   read

I played Endless Space 2 and hot damn are those Battlestar Galactica fights cool-looking

I'm not a strategy game guy, but that might change with Endless Space 2. If that's enough for you to check out and look for another preview by someone better-versed in 4X games, I'll still love you (but don't let the doorstructoid hit your ...   read

Pit People is probably the weirdest game yet from The Behemoth

I wasn't all that interested in a strategy game from The Behemoth. They generally excel in more high-octane twitch genres, so when they decided to branch out with Pit People I was lukewarm to the idea. But after playing the beta that w...   read

Good luck getting past Gandhi in Civilization VI

For years, Mahatma Gandhi has struck fear in the hearts of Civilization players as a nuke-amassing warlord. He seems like a pleasant-enough guy at first -- someone who doesn't resort to violence, much less violence on a nuclear scale -- bu...   read

The Behemoth is running a beta for its weird strategy RPG soon
