Cities: Skylines is gone fishing with the Sunset Harbor expansion

Launched today, Sunset Harbor adds new fishing industries to wring that wet silver from your waters. It has a grab bag of other…

Cities: Skylines takes a fishing trip to Sunset Harbor next week

I've always thought Cities: Skyline's coasts were missing something. Now, I finally know what it was: it's the clanging of bells, the swaying of battered old boats and the scent of a fresh morning's catch. Today, Paradox announced Sunset Harbor, bringing some good ol' fashioned fishing to your city's industrial roster. More than just bringing a little bit of Berwick to Paradox's city-builder, Skyline's next…

This Cities: Skylines build recreates the honeycomb Detroit that could have been

I will forever be impressed with the imagination of players in creative games. I admire from afar grand Minecraft monuments, luxurious Sims 4 houses, and beautifully dense Stardew Valley farms but know that I'll never have the dedication to make any of them myself. User "Mr_Hemi" on Reddit has taken a page from the past and spent over a year building Detroit as it was…

Get all of Paradox’s best management games for less than $20 in Humble’s latest bundle

After the blurry blue delights of last month's Sonic fest, those bundle fiends over at Humble have put together a brand new pack of game goodies for December, this time focusing on Paradox's best management games to celebrate the early access launch of Surviving the Aftermath. Ironically, Surviving the Aftermath did not, in fact, survive the cut to get into the bundle itself, but Humble's…

Cities: Skylines enrols Campus expansion

Laid-back city-builder Cities: Skylines today enters the period of supreme slack with the addition of universities in its latest expansion. 'Campus' is its name, and building campuses is its game. You too can establish fine educational establishments for students to doss about, build sports arenas for them to shout in, and shape your city's policies to enable their idleness. It's possible you may find some…

Cities: Skylines expands into education later this month

It’s time to pack your Cities: Skylines inhabitants off to uni, where they will surely get up to nothing but sombre study. There will be no mischief, though there may be some handegg, which is essentially the same thing. The update will include five sports, in fact, along with other faculties, new policies, and new maps. You can get a glimpse of some of it…

Steam Charts: Red Dead Redemption 2 Edition!

OK, look, it isn't a Red Dead Redemption 2 edition, because Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't out for PC yet. But if I keep typing Red Dead Redemption 2 into this Google is going to be SO TRICKED and the clicks will pour in and Graham will give me a promotion!

Cities: Skylines expands into Industries today for fun and profit

Until such time as we can seize the means of production and abolish capitalism, the smoggy skies introduced in Cities: Skylines's latest expansion - Industries - are just a fact of life. At least you can simulate it working in your favour, paying directly into your pocket. Released today, Colossal Order's new expansion lets you define your city's purpose in the world by creating goods…

Feature: Low-pressure area

Mellowing out with management games

My body betrayed me last month, trapping me in my bed when it wasn’t sending me rushing to my poor, overworked loo. I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t work and so I turned to management games to take my mind off the virus squatting inside me. Juggling budgets, disasters and production chains might not sound particularly relaxing, but there’s also a swathe of low-pressure sims that…

Cities: Skylines – Industries expansion to add “more meaningful choices”

In the week that United Nations scientists declared we need to immediately make massive changes to society to avoid catastrophic climate change, Paradox have announced a new Cities: Skylines expansion focused on the smoke and thunder of industry. I suppose that's a dose of grim reality to counterbalance the utopian optimism of the game's earlier Green Cities expansion. And, Paradox say, Industries will be good…

The 100 best-selling games on Steam in 2018 so far

We've just passed the half-way point of 2018, so Ian Gatekeeper and all his fabulously wealthy chums over at Valve have revealed which hundred games have sold best on Steam over the past six months. It's a list dominated by pre-2018 names, to be frank, a great many of which you'll be expected, but there are a few surprises in there. 2018 releases Jurassic World…

Steam’s Spring Cleaning Event wants you to clear your backlog… Or just try a bunch of new games instead

I'm not sure if Valve's latest promotional wotsit on Steam knows whether it's coming or going. On one hand, it's nice that the Spring Cleaning Event (running until Monday, 28th May) is nudging players into trying out games they may have bought in sales and never touched, but pairing that with nine simultaneous free weekend events does somewhat undermine the message.Ah well, it's an excuse to play…

Cities: Skylines aims to please all the people in Parklife

It feels rare for a week to go by where Paradox don't announce another expansion for their growing stable of strategy and simulation sandboxes, but it's also hard to complain when they look as nice as Parklife, the next expansion for Cities: Skylines. Adding yet another direction for your perfect city to grow in, Parklife - unsurprisingly - spans parks of all kinds, from national…

Best Cities: Skylines mods

Cities: Skylines turned three a couple of weeks ago, meaning that it’s time to dust off our best Cities: Skylines mods list and see what wonderful community creations we can fill it with. On the day of its launch, Skylines already had pages and pages of buildings and complicated junctions waiting to be downloaded; now there are 1,000 of them, containing a ridiculous 145,948 mods.…

Cities: Skylines erects free trial weekend

Fancy building a little model city to coo at, watching little people and cars zipping around the streets you laid out? You can do that right now with Cities: Skylines, thanks to a free trial of the full game running until Sunday. Colossal Order's 2015's game is a pleasant little city-builder, one largely not mega-serious about crunching numbers and honing margins, and that's nice. Our…

Feature: Give PC a chance

The 20 best non-violent games on PC

My nerves have been sufficiently jangled and my trigger-finger sufficiently itched by the glut of action games which landed in the closing months of last year. I crave an altogether more sedate beginning to 2018, and so my mind turns to games in which violence, reflex or any other kind of unblinking attentiveness takes a back seat.
