Podcast: the triumphant return, and Gears Tactics vs XCOM: Chimera Squad

We've been away from podcasting for a while, ever since Bungus Humongous (who used to record and edit it) fell off his skateboard and exploded into a pile of coins. But now we're back! And because we all need a chat with mates at this difficult time, we're just having a nice chat about the games we're playing every week. This time: Gears Tactics vs.…

Gears Tactics review

I've been playing Gears Tactics with every spare moment of the last week. The second I'm done writing review, I'm going back for more. It's superb. In fact, it's good to the extent where, as risky as it is to say such a thing, I'd argue it sets the new gold standard for turn-based tactics.I say that as a lifelong XCOM (and X-COM) fan, too,…

Gears Tactics will appeal to XCOM fans and classic Gears Of War fans alike

Show me someone who says I'm not a fan of our excellent VidBud team, and I'll show you a liar. Recently, VidBud Matthew got an in-depth demo of Gears Tactics, a turn-based tactical entry into the Gears Of War series, and my admiration only grew. Set 10 years before the events of the very first Gears Of War game, you'd be forgiven for thinking this'd…

Here’s all the news and trailers from the Game Awards

Like a heavily-sponsored Santa Claus, the Game Awards swept in last night and left us a pile of presents to unwrap. If you did the smart thing and slept through the event, you'll have missed a bunch of new announcements. Alice O and Graham did some amazing work in writing up as much as they could as it happened, but a few sly games snuck…

Gears Tactics looks a whole lot like XCOM with gunsaws

It's often grossly reductive to say a turn-based tactical squad game looks like XCOM, but Gears Tactics really does. We got our first look at the Gears Of War spin-off in motion during The Game Awards tonight and even the UI looks similar to Firaxis's triumphant streamlined tactics 'em up. Though you certainly won't mistake Gears Tactics for XCOM, what with the men built like…

Every PC game at Microsoft’s E3 2018 conference

Microsoft had a lot of games to announce at E3 2018, but it's a little murkier this year to find out what was relevant for PC users. Some games were coming to both, others only to their Xbox One consoles. You could of course watch the entire conference right here, but for some there just isn't enough time to wade through the entire show.Not to…

Gears of War 5 isn’t the only new Gears game

Gears of War is coming back in a big way. Today's Microsoft E3 presser ended with a huge blast of Gears reveals. The first: a Funko based Gears of War game called Gears POP! which is... just bewildering? I don't know. Are any of you Gearheads also big Funko collectors? Seems like a weird place to start bridging games into the Funkoverse, but it is…
