Warhammer 40,000: Gladius unleashes Tyranids in new DLC

Warhammer's Tyranids would be difficult to placate in a traditional 4X strategy game. They'd always be offering you bum deals for your biomass, sending heretical missionaries to spread the good word about biomass, claiming they saw your biomass first so it's rightfully theirs, rivalling your tourism industry with such attractions as Biomass World and Eurobiomass, delivering notes sneering at your meagre biomass, and tainting your…

Warhammer 40k is hexy 4Xy in Gladius – Relics Of War

In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only Warhammer. We're still a few millennia off a Warhammer 40,000 dating game (try not to blush as you polish your crush's crotchskull!) but Games Workship's grimdark universe did today expand into the realms of turn-based 4X strategy with the launch of Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War. Don't expect to score a cultural…

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War killed off all the diplomats

Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War is an unconventional 4X game that doubles down on the perpetually gloomy universe’s penchant for conflict by cutting out diplomacy entirely. The Space Marines, Astra Militarum, Orks and Necron are all at each other’s throats, leaving them no time to work things out at the negotiating table. War, then, is Gladius’ raison d'être, with Dreadnoughts, Tankbustas and Necron…

Warhammer 40K goes 4X in Gladius – Relics of War

The lack of a 4X romp set in the grimdark future of the 41st millennium is an unusual omission, especially given the number of Warhammer 40K games that have been released over the last few years. Proxy Studios and publisher Slitherine are on the case, however, as the pair have just announced Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War. Along with being a bit of…

Pandora – First Contact review

After several months in cryosleep, I finally landed on Pandora, a world teeming with life and ripe for exploitation. The setting and intro movie stirred memories of Alpha Centuari in the muddy pool of my mind, and while it would be unfair to expect any game to live up to that legacy, I was hoping that Pandora would scratch certain troublesome itches. I spent a…

Alpha Centaurish: Pandora: First Contact Out Now

I first heard about Pandora: First Contact when an RPS commenter linked to it as being 'maybe a bit like Alpha Centauri'. Except that's not true, because I've since remembered that I first heard about the planet-settling turn-based 4X game when frequent RPS contributor and friend-o-person Dan Griliopoulos updated his LinkedIn profile to mention he wrote for the game. Now the game is out. To…

March Of The Tiny Men: Conquest

UPDATE: Proxy send of some multiplayer competitions - with prizes! - they are running for this. Check here and here for details. Hey, you there! Yes, you. You look like you might enjoy a moderately challenging simultaneous turn-based strategy. If that's true then you might get along with Conquest, which is such a game. It has hexes. And it has a demo. It's fast and…
