Future Wars: Anno 2070 Gets Militant

Anno 2070 is a vision of what cities will be like when I'm either dead or an incredibly doddery old chap with a cybernetic toupee, and I've been pleased by the promise of its glistening underwater cities. Despite the terrible lack of resources facing our fragile globe, I'd quite enjoy retiring to one of those sea-bubbles. But, of course, someone had to go and spoil…

Prosperity & Cool Sci-Fi Tech: Anno 2070

The surprise futuristic entry in the Anno citybuilding series - Anno 2070 - has got a new video, showing off 3 minutes of mostly game footage. I hope you don't think I'm crazy when I say I'm picking up a vague (very vague) Alpha Centauri vibe from this trailer. Sure, there's no mind worms or nerve-staples on display, but it's still pushing some of the…

Future Shock: First Anno 2070 Trailer

The first trailer's arrived for Anno 2070, the futuristic reimagining of the city-building strategy series which previously covered the years of 1701, 1602, 1503 and 1404, making 2070 an excellently mad choice. The below footage is pretty exciting- it seems we'll have the choice of making either a sustainable city that operates in harmony with its environment (with what looks like Apple doing the architecture),…

Ve(ry)nice To See Anno-ther Game

The solid and satisfying medieval city-building and trading sequel from earlier this year is going to get an expansion in February 2010. "Venice" will include a new Venetian faction, and an accompanying infiltration and sabotage feature set. What's probably more exciting for existing Anno 1404 (Dawn of Discovery in North America) players is that it also features eight-player co-op and versus multiplayer for the sandbox…

Wot I Think: Anno 1404: Dawn Of Discovery

Sea-trading city-builder Anno 1404 (or Dawn Of Discovery in North America) has sailed into our critical harbour to unload large bales of real-time medieval economics. Will it attract gaming patricians? Or could it simply be a peasant's hovel furnished with old-school resource management? Here's Wot I Think.

Desert Island Discoveries: Anno 1404 Demo

So, I've been sitting and reviewing Anno all day on the Wii, where I found myself unfeasibly amused by being repeatedly told to pay the herb tribute to the king, which sounds like some fascinating kind of drug-dealing slang. I come upstairs and find that the big-boy pants version of Anno 1404 (aka Dawn of Discovery in the US) has just released its demo. It's…

So Anyway, Dawn of Discovery Looks Intricate

I just realised that we've barely paid any attention to Dawn Of Discovery, which is the historical city-forging management sequel ANNO 1404 for us Europeans. Presumably Americans need something that ties into the whole colonial history/discover of America thing to make sense of it, eh? [This bit is where I am poking fun at pointless rebranding exercises, HAHA.] Whatever the naming foolery, it's looking rather…
