Managing Expectations: Impire And A Game Of Dwarves

Impire is quite a lot like Dungeon Keeper and it may well be worthy of the comparison.

Hands-On: Hawken

If anyone was keeping count, they'd probably tell you that I died a lot more often than I killed at Gamescom. Whether having my head knocked off by a hammer or huddling around a fire and failing to survive the Eastern Front, I spent a lot of time meeting makers. Let it be known, however, that I was actually quite good at Hawken, but that's…
