Dropping today, the new A World Betrayed Chapter Pack adds two new factions, a new time period and some brand new units - but really, it's all about those rascals Sun Ce…

Humankind’s cities will evolve and sprawl based on your choices like real metropolises

Civ-like strategy game Humankind has been big on its tagline of wanting players to create "a civilization that is as unique as you are." That will extend to your cities too, Amplitude say during a new developer video. As do real modern metropolises, Humankind's cities will evolve but carry with them the evidence of what they once were in the form of old architecture and oddly-shaped…

Feature: Pack it in

Have You Played… Comix Zone?

I’ve written a few times now about my family’s fabled first PC, a 1995 Packard Bell that had the faint air of a sickly Victorian child, resurrected as a sullen robot a century after finally succumbing to an ill-defined but fatal spluttering sickness. It was a machine that seemed to be ailing from day one, but since it was the first PC we’d had, we…

Total War: Warhammer 2 invites players to an “extreme” experimental beta

Total War: Warhammer 2 has had its share of updates and DLCs over the last several years. Creative Assembly say that each new pack of Lords and other content make it increasingly challenging to change balance between units without upending the entire house of cards. Instead of slowly rolling out more conservative changes, Creative Assembly are going a bit more radical. They've invited players to…

Feature: Medicine is the best laughter

How Two Point Hospital taught me to relax using Freddie Mercury and a load of plants

I played 1997's weirdly named Theme Hospital a fair amount in my teen years, but despite my love of both management games and very silly things, I never got around to playing 2018's spiritual sequel, the equally weirdly named Two Point Hospital. With the game coming to consoles this week, however, I thought now would be a fine moment to dive in and see what…

Feature: Who manages the manager?

My Football Manager game unravelled because I said no, once, to one player

It started with Glenn Walker. 31, well-paid and past-it, Glenn was one of the litany of players I inherited as new manager of Brackley Town, languishing in England’s sixth tier. Glenn would come to be the emblem of how all of Football Manager 2020’s systems interact and collaborate to make managing my players’ hopes and expectations a unique challenge that frustrates as much as satisfies.…

Total War: Three Kingdom’s Mandate Of Heaven brings a new starting time

Creative Assembly roll back the clock of Total War: Three Kingdoms in the new expansion released today, letting players start eight years earlier in a wee prequel campaign then keep that same save on rolling through regular history.

Pick up Company Of Heroes 2 free this weekend, keep it forever

Relic used to make some absolute corkers, huh? They've finally found their way back in the spotlight with Age Of Empires VI, but if you were kicking about the RTS space in the 00s, they were akin to gods. Between Homeworld's space opera spectacle and Warhammer 40k: Dawn Of War's grimdark bombast, they somehow found time to make a little series of down-to-earth tactics games…

Sonic has a new look for his movie, and it’s disappointingly familiar

The snivelling worms in Hollywood have jettisoned their creative vision for a blue humanoid hedgehog able to run faster than the speed of sound, bowing to public demands that such a monstrosity brought into the human world would look 'cute'. A new Sonic the Hedgehog movie trailer reveals the makeover promised by the spineless cowards following reactions to Cinesonic's big reveal in April. Sonic now…

Panzer Dragoon: Remake is cooming to PC

I appreciate a name like Panzer Dragoon: Remake. It’s not shy about what it is, which is a remake of the 1995 Sega Saturn shooter about drago(o)ns. It was announced for the Nintendo Phabuslate earlier this year, but the developers have found the button on their machines that also makes it for the PC, so now we’re getting it as well.
