Magic: The Tankening – World Of Tanks Generals

By Nathan Grayson on August 14th, 2012.

The twist is that WoT players have actually just been reenacting a giant card game all along.

Huh, this one sort of came out of nowhere. You know World of Tanks? The game with all the explosions and tactical action and worlds and tanks? Well, it’s a collectible card game now. Or rather, Wargaming’s releasing an F2P TCG extension of the absurdly popular mechanized carnage semi-sim, because why not? These sorts of things tend to be pretty hit-or-miss, of course, but as a childhood TCG fiend, I must confess slight interest in World of Tanks Generals and maybe a relapse-borne cold sweat or two.

Mario, Ryu and Bob Too: Super Mario Crossover 2 Out

By Craig Pearson on February 9th, 2012.

Proing!
Fanfiction often has surprising visits from other fictional places, although the fact that I’m here and not writing on that other lovely PC gaming site means it happens in real-life as well. Super Mario Bros Crossover 2.0 is the gaming equivalent of fanfiction, bringing characters from all over the Nintendo universe and having an office party with them in the Mario world.

Who Smelt It? Forge Of Empires

By Craig Pearson on February 9th, 2012.

Who builds a shanty town next to a landmark?
I can see a future where city planner is the new footballer. There’s a preponderance of browser-based city building games about, so easy to play, so right there, pretty soon Sky will have channels dedicated to them. Mark my words: in ten years people will be swapping blueprint stickers and the front page of the newspapers will be full of zoning scandals. Innogames‘s Forge Of Empires is one such game, and they’ve decided to let you have a shot of their upcoming strategy game. All you need is the browser you’re reading this on, an e-mail, a name, and the ability to make a password.

Demonstrably Unhelpful: Sims 3 Demo

By Adam Smith on September 30th, 2011.

There is absolutely nothing sleazy about that image and none of you have dirty minds

Today we are faced with a series of questions. How is it possible to convince even more people to buy The Sims 3? Who would be targeted in such a drive? People who are still clinging to the arguably more complete and less buggy Sims 2, where they can already own pets? What about the cynics and naysayers, can they be convinced? What is the hook that will snare a new audience? EA have decided to offer a teaser, which is kind of like a demo but not. The teaser can be downloaded or played online through the Gaikai cloud service. That’s a new one on me so I decided to see how it worked and what it offered. The first and most difficult step was making my way inside.

Star Trek: Infinite Space Announced A Bit

By John Walker on October 27th, 2010.

Actual footage.*

A browser-based Star Trek free-to-play MMO was just announced last night. Did you know that? I didn’t. But we all do now. It’s being developed by German team, Keen Games (who have previously made What’s Cooking? Jamie Oliver (if only that were a question and answer), and G-Force guinea pig-based movie tie-in), and published by GameForge. Neither of whom have gotten around to adding the game to their own websites. Which is always an odd choice. I’ve nothing to link to. There’s a trailer that I’m certain contains absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the game below.
