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…
As of a few weeks ago, I don’t think many of us expected a new RAGE to appear on the horizon. But after a series of leaks, ones that Bethesda soon played up to the max, RAGE 2 was confirmed yesterday, with a full-fat trailer landing today. Hit the break to check it out.
It’s that time of the year where the big American TV networks go around killing off all of the best shows. SyFy threw The Expanse into space, and Fox cut Brooklyn Nine-Nine adrift. Yet, fortune braves some shows, and NBC picked up the Nine-Nine for another season. The community manager for TT Games, those behind the LEGO games, took to LEGO Worlds to celebrate in this video, niftly showing off what can be done with the LEGO building game. Enjoy.
I like Xcom. I like Xcom2. I even like the ridiculously hard add-on for Xcom2. You may have seen me write about Xcom in all it’s recent incarnations at length. I like Xcom. So this is why i’m rather interested in Phoenix point. Not only because it’s been made by Jullian Gollop and his team at Snapshot Games (Gollop was originally part of Mythos who birthed the original Xcom games back in the nineties, Yes, nineties) but because it is building…
One unexpected piece of news from the update was the announcement of the full release date of Dead Cells in August of this year.
I’ve dabbled in Hearts of Iron IV now and again since launch, a game which was great at the time, but lacking some of the polish I would have wanted to see to give it a Red Mist. The game has evolved nicely over the past two years thanks to the Paradox style of releasing paid expansions to coincide with extensive free updates. To get the most out of the game at this point, you tend to need to dive into the…
There’s a pleasant little surprise in the gaming world today as Kunos Simulazioni have unveiled Assetto Corsa Competizione, their new racer that will be the official game of the Blancpain GT series. Coming to Early Access this summer, you can expect a focus on e-sports in a game paying homage to one of the best racing series in the world.
Summer, 2016, I went to war as Mussolini, booted him out and turned Italy democratic, formed the Novus Imperium Romanum, and conquered Stalingrad. Yes, I am talking about Hearts of Iron IV which will soon be expanding once more with Waking The Tiger this March. Paradox are concentrating this expansion of the Far East, with many changes to Japan and the different actors in the Chinese civil war. National focus trees are being revamped and expanded, but there is so much more to…
