Jagged Alliance: Rage review

In Jagged Alliance: Rage, I pause before taking the final shot in each mission. If you were to examine my face during these moments, noting the hollow look in my eyes as my cursor hovers over a button labelled ‘Do it’, you might suspect some crisis of conscience. Perhaps I’ve started to doubt the cause my small team of mercenaries has been fighting for? Maybe…

Jagged Alliance: Rage rumbles in the jungle today

Jagged Alliance: Rage, direct sequel to Sir-Tech's tactical classic Jagged Alliance 2, has launched. Originally due out in September, it just kinda disappeared into the fog one day before launch. Now it's back, a bit more wild-eyed than before. Maybe it's seen things out there. Maybe Cliffhanger Productions wanted to polish it up - we'll probably never know. Anyway, JA: Rage is set twenty years…

Jagged Alliance: Rage delayed only one day before launch

"So it turns out Jagged Alliance: Rage is not-terrible," our Alec declared in his cheery way after playing the latest revival of the venerated real-time tactical combat series. It was surprising, seeing as many other attempts have ended up bleh, but even more surprising is that it was due to launch barely six weeks after being announced. Well, that part at least was too good…

Jagged Alliance: Rage comes sneaking out of the jungle in three weeks

Jagged Alliance: Rage - a modern sequel to a turn-based tactics classic - will launch on September 27th according to publisher THQ Nordic. This comes as some surprise, as it feels like it was just a couple weeks ago that the game was announced at all. Because it was. While I do have my reservations (I'm a huge fan of Jagged Alliance 2 and its still-active…

So it turns out Jagged Alliance: Rage is not-terrible

Y'know what? I don't hate it. Which, after 19 years of hurt (the remarkable JA2 mod scene aside), is happy progress for once-beloved turn-based mercenary combat series Jagged Alliance. There's a whole mess of things wrong with newly-announced latest comeback-apparent Jagged Alliance: Rage, but a few hours with early code has me thinking there's a lot right with its core.

Shadowrun Online Infilitrates Steam Early Access Next Week

After a bit of a bumpy development, including turning to Kickstarter a year after its announcement and a lengthy delay, Shadowrun Online is slipping on its trenchcoat and mirrorshades to greet the world. Street samurai and shaman throughout The Matrix will get to throw down in turn-based tactical combat come Monday, March 31, when the game will launch via Steam Early Access. While the full…

Shadowrun Online Footage, Cost Change Details

Forthcoming tactical combat game Shadowrun Online, which we first looked at here (and not to be confused with the gigantically Kickstarted RPG, Shadowrun Returns) has revealed some early game footage, which they stress is a work-in-progress prototype, and you can see that below. But they too have hit Kickstarter, aiming for a fulsome $500k to fund their work. They've also rethought some of their plans…

Rolling Stone: Jagged Alliance Online Goes To Open Beta

The alliance that is jagged, but also online (rather than the one that will soon be back in action) has an open beta! You can completely sign up for that right here. I've no idea whatsoever about whether this is any good, or not, but I do rather hope it is, because this is the same company (and therefore the same design and tech) as…

Cliffhanger Announce Shadowrun Online

Cliffhanger (also doing Jagged Alliance Online) have announced that they will be making a Shadowrun game. The fantasy-meet-cyberpunk setting is a splendid one, and Cliffhanger's effort looks closer to the old RPG than the recent shonky multiplayer take on the game concept. Cliffhanger explain their approach: "it will have a perspective camera in a 3D setting, much like our Jagged Alliance Online game... So, it…

Aiming At Jagged Alliance Online Footage

It's GamesCom next week in Cologne, and that means we're about to be engulfed in a torrent of news. A few early trailers and so on have started turning up, and he first of these to attach to our GamesCom 2011 tag will be this: Jagged Alliance Online (not to be confused with Jagged Alliance: Back In Action). Gamigo's MMOG take on the tactical squad-combat…

Making The Cut: Jagged Alliance Online

Emerging from the jungles of Cologne is news of a classic PC series getting a reboot. Jagged Alliance is back as a browser based tactical MMO. And yes, there's I can hear the sigh from here, even before I've published the story. But abstractly, this is the sort of game which could transfer interestingly across and - hey! - at least it's turn based. There's…
