Seize A Saladin: Stronghold Crusader 2

Stronghold Crusader 2 skips away from the muddy fields of Wales (I assume most castles are in Wales because I saw one there as a child), returning to the dust and deserts of the Holy Land (not to imply that Wales is the Unholy Land). I think of the first Crusader spin-off as being a more traditional RTS within the Stronghold mould and what I've…

Spacecraftcraft: Notch Starting An Elitey Firefly-ey Game

I think I've found serenity: Minecraft creator Notch is slowly thumbing through the Big Book Of Awesome Space Things while he comes up with his next game. He told the handsome devils over at PC Gamer that he's pondering a sandbox style Elite game, "except done right".

(I didn't hear you ask anything,actually. I'm not a psychic or a madman who…

Feature: Crush the castle

A Storm of Swords: Stronghold 3 Preview

I went to see Firefly's long-awaited strategy sequel Stronghold 3 last week. It's a game about constructing some castles and destroying others, and it looks rather jolly. But jolly in a 'squalid medieval life and constant war' kind of way. Here's some details, impressions and even some trailers for you...

Gnarly Crenelations, Dude.

In the tradition of publishers following on from stuff RPS does, following the Stronghold making of we published a few weeks back, Gamecock have announced they'll be publishing an improved version of the Stronghold Crusader in May, going by the unbelievable name Stronghold Crusader: EXTREME. This will allow you to lob around over 10,000 (Count 'em!) units, adds a tactical bar for firing "Super Moves"…
