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.
A good train management game can be a thing of excellence, just think back to the Railroad Tycoon series and bask the glow of glorious train timetabling and management. It is a genre which I’ve largely lost track of in recent time, but the upcoming full release of Train Valley on September 16th could change that.
The Great Swindle of the title of this post isn’t some kind of Great British Bake off, not at all. I’m talking about something equally as British, that is the game known as The Swindle (official site) from Size Five Games which has a release date of July 28th set. That’s a month from today for those sleeping in the back.
This past week was a big one for fans of Football Manager, a documentary on the game was released in select cinemas across the UK, a release date was confirmed (November 7th for those who didn’t read the title of the post) and a massive amount of new features and improvements have been revealed. Good times indeed.
I might have talked about Divinity: Original Sin very briefly earlier this month but some big news has emerged along with a new trailer that I can’t resist sharing with you all. Well, I know that if I don’t share it I’m just going to want to play the game now, even though I have promised myself to stay strong and wait until it is released before playing again.
Somehow, in my preview of 2014 I managed to leave Watch Dogs of the list, though that does show the strength of some of the exciting games coming out this year. Despite it not quite making the list, I am still looking forward to the open-world hackathon from Ubisoft, even more now that is has a release date. The 27th May is that day, and Ubisoft released a new trailer to celebrate the announcement. Check it out below.
A new trailer for the most piratey of games, Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag has launched profiling various members of Captain Kenway’s crew of robbers. Well, the trailer is called ‘The Pirate Heist Trailer’ so I think that is an apt description. Blackbeard, Calcio Jack and Anne Bonny all make an appearance with some swashbuckling catchphrases. After my adventures with the game at Eurogamer I am certainly starting to look forward to this one now.
Toki Tori 2 has quietly been in development for quite some time now and with good reason. Two Tribes made the decision that this would be the first game in a decade that would be entirely without the pressures of having a publisher. Instead of being dogged down by release dates Two Tribes took “as long as necessary to really make it shine”.
Welcome to The Reticule’s definitive roundup of gaming releases throughout April 2013. All release dates stated are for the EU, across all currently available platforms. Keep this page bookmarked for easy access, as we will link all previews and reviews when we post them on the site.
After THQ went the way of the Stephens Island Wren in early January, I and many others were more than a little concerned about the fate of those titles it held under its wing. Metro: Last Light and Company of Heroes II were well into production when the publisher went into liquidation, and for a time rumours were rife that the titles would never see daylight.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 is very nearly here with UK publisher Excalibur revealing today on Facebook that they will be releasing the game on October 26th for UK retail. However, if you are very keen, developers SCS Software have confirmed that they will be in a position to release the game digitally on the 19th of October. I for one and getting pretty excited for this, it isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but this series has slowly created a little place of its own in my heart.
Earlier this afternoon Nintendo revealed a massive heap of information about the European release of the Wii U during their Nintendo Direct presentation. The big take away message is that the Wii U will be releasing in Europe on the 30th November. There will be two distinct bundles on offer, a basic and a premium package. Hit the jump for more details.
Amidst all the hubbub of E3, Valve have announced that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive will be released on the 21st of August on Steam, XBLA and PSN for a target price of $15. Now feel free to get back to the rest of the E3 goodness.
