So I have a new love. We met in Russia (ostensibly) and just fell for each other during some long walks through the forest. I remember it like it was yesterday. Beautiful meadows, mountains in the distance, the occasional wild flower. Oh and Gunfire and death, lots of death. It was a match made in heaven really. Perhaps some explanation may be warranted here…..
As we celebrate our 10th Birthday here at Reticule Towers, we’re going to take a chance to look at our favourite games of the Reticule Years. There are few, if any, rules set for what we will write about. So hit the break, and see what we have chosen as Our Favourite Games of The Reticule Years.
The title of this post is a very obscure reference, one that maybe only a small handful of people will get. It’s well deserved though, as EA have sent the internet crazy by talking about Command and Conquer again, but this time, in the context of a PC release, not that inane Rivals mobile game they revealed earlier this year. Onwards!
In a break from our regular EGX 2018 coverage, I want to take a moment to bring you a detailed gameplay preview of The Colonists by Paul Kilduff-Taylor from the publishers, Mode 7 Games to accompany the confirmation of an October release date.
Today, September 13th 2018 will go down in history as the day two indie mega-hits were released. Frozen Synapse 2 and Megaquarium are both out now.
I talked a few weeks ago about the upcoming vampire RPG, Nighthawks, and now you can pledge your support for it over on Kickstarter, and while pledging, you can find out loads more about the game. Oh, you want me to do some of the hard work for you? Read on.
In a few short days, Strange Brigade, from the team behind the Sniper Elite games, will be released on these shores for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. To celebrate the impending release on Tuesday 28th August, developers Rebellion Games have unveiled the official launch trailer. Hit the break for more.
I will forever be disappointed that despite getting some hands-on time with Megaquarium at EGX last year, I didn’t write about it at any length. It looked, and played, as a wonderful tycoon game putting you in charge of running your very own aquarium. Now, it has been confirmed for release this September, and there’s a new trailer to go with the release date confirmation.
We first heard about The Colonists last summer, but things have been strangely quiet since then. The silence was broken with a smash earlier this week with a new trailer showing off some in-game action. Take a look below the jump.
Richard Cobbett, he of ex-PC Gamer fame and writer on Sunless Seas has this very evening announced Nighthawks, a vampire RPG from Wadjet Eye Games (The Blackwell Series, Unavowed) and Richard.
Rejoice dear readers, for Dead Cells has hit version 1.0, and is now available in the wild on Steam and assorted console gizmos. To celebrate, developers Motion Twin reveal in their release blog that they will celebrate by going to ye olde pub. In the 454 days the game has been in Early Access, there have been 79 updates, including 10 major feature or content releases. Boy, it seems worth the wait for this release version to go live.
When I we wrote in November 2016, in a story totally not based on a Mode 7 Games press release, we entirely did not promise that Frozen Synapse 2 would be releasing in 2017. Honest. Just look at that post.
Did you think Paradox had done enough over the PDXCON weekend? They announced Age of Wonders: Planetfall, and revealed a range of expansion packs and their first ventures into board games. Well, that wasn’t all as they also revealed Imperator: Rome, their grand strategy title taking us back to Classical antiquity in Paradox’s most detailed map yet.
Everyone loves a good old expansion pack, don’t they? Especially Paradox Intereactive, who, at this weekend’s PDXCON have announced a slew of expansions, including a dive into the world of boardgames. We’ll get to that in a bit, for now, we’ll start with Stellaris.
The Age of Wonders series passed me by when it kicked off at the turn of the millenium, and then when it saw a rebirth in 2014. Why? I’m not sure, but for those of you who missed out first time around, and those who are fans of the series, we will all have a chance to enjoy it again next year. Age of Wonders: Planetfall will be landing on PC and consoles in 2019 thanks to original developers Triumph Studios, with Paradox handling…
