Disciples III: Renaissance Releaseitude

The story is overtaking us. Since we're off at World of Love today, I'm quickly nosing around for stories we've missed. I see that turn-based fantasy game Disciples III: Renaissance has had an E3 trailer out. Then I see that it's due shortly in Summer. I see that summer means already out late last year in Russia, next month in the US and TODAY IN…

PT Boats, Shipshape Demo

A demo for the recently-released naval combat game from Akella and Battlefront, PT Boats, turned up while we were off-air. You can grab it here for a price of 838mb.

Impossibly gothic cathedral cities, endlessly knotted and gnarled forests, warped supernatural creatures aplenty: it's…

Hack, Therefore Slash: Captain Blood Walkthrough

Sadly nothing to do with the classic Captain Blood, and everything to do with classic novel Captain Blood. It's a hack 'n' slash adventure game from the developers of Sea Dogs, complete with pirates getting stabbed, cannons getting primed, and bosses getting - wuh-oh - quicktime event'd. I played this a bit in Moscow last year and it was actually pretty fun - especially the…

Age Of Pirates II, Footage Ahoy!

Is it me, or is sail-boat violence suddenly vogue for PC games? Akella's RPG-with-water Age of Pirates II has the whole show: tall ships with long cannons, men in frilly shirts, cutlass action and buried treasure. While I'm more of a ninja man than a pirate man (really a robot guy, truth be told) I can really see the appeal in what Akella are doing:…
