Megaquarium Filters Onto Steam This September

Megaquarium Filters Onto Steam This September

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.

Imperator: Rome – New From Paradox

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.

Age of Wonders Goes to Space with Paradox

Age of Wonders Goes to Space with Paradox

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…

Bird Beak: A look at Phoenix Point

Bird Beak: A look at Phoenix Point

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…

Hearts of Iron IV – More War! Form a Nation! Difficulty Modes!

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.

Theme Hospital Returns in Two Point Hospital

Theme Hospital Returns in Two Point Hospital

As a young PC gamer, I was a big fan of Bullfrog’s Theme games, though I only owned one myself. I would while away hours on end playing Theme Park, and when my neighbour got Theme Hospital, we would spend our weekends and summer holiday’s laughing at the various illnesses and diseases in the game. They were two great games, though I was always sad that I didn’t own my own copy of Theme Hopsital. Soon, the wait will be no longer as Two Point Hospital…
