El Presidente logs on in Tropico 6’s Spitter DLC

Regretfully, Tropico 6 has become extremely online. "Big mood", as the kids say. "Same". This week's Spitter DLC adds the faux-social network of the same name to Tropico's banana republic management sim, letting your despotic leader post their way into fame, fortune, followers, and the lingering resentment of a population that wishes their state figurehead could just, for once, log off.

Every couple of years I really feel the itch to comfort-blanket myself with one, and lo and behold, every couple of years there's a new one. That…

Tropico 6 reveals its isles of plunder

If I were going to steal the Eiffel Tower, I'd definitely strap a giant rocket to it and launch it into the sky. Once it was airborne, I'd remotely pilot it back to my volcano lair and then park it in the Monument Chamber next to the Statue of Liberty (also rocket-propelled) and the Great Sphinx of Giza (trundles around on little wheels).It's not clear…
