Abandon History: Gettysburg: Armored Warfare Is Out

I'm all about hybrids. When I'm not in Castle Shotgun's basement laboratories, attempting to breed rabbits with dragons, I love to investigate games that plunder from multiple genres. But by crikey, I'm daunted by the prospect of a third-person shooter crossed with a real-time strategy.

The Paradox Convention Preview Blowout

Last week I was in New York, eating pizza and inventing all-new comparative metaphors for how cold it was (“colder than Bobby Kotick’s eyes”, “colder than a Game Gear’s battery”, “colder than a handjob from an eel”). Why? Because last week was the yearly Paradox Convention, where journalists are invited to meet a whole bag of developers and look at all of Paradox’s upcoming releases.…
