Company Of Heroes 2 is free if you grab it now

To celebrate Company Of Heroes 2's fifth birthday (its fifth birthday... six months ago?), Sega are giving Relic's World War 2 real-time strategy sequel away for free on Steam. Grab it by Monday and it's yours for keepsies. They did the same with its fourth birthday last year but it's still nice for people who didn't know CoH last year, or didn't know it well…

Two Point Hospital’s Bigfoot DLC outdoes Christmas crackers at bad puns

While Big Foot would be a thematically appropriate ailment for Theme Hospital successor Two Point Hospital, they're playing it straight and just referring to the abominable snowman. In Bigfoot, a chunk of winter-themed DLC released today by Two Point Studios, you've been hired by local snow-ape-thing Bartholomew F. Yeti to renovate the hospitals up in The Pointy Mountains. The expansion adds a new snowy environment,…

Total War: Three Kingdoms’s new diplomacy systems look deviously intricate

War may never change, but diplomacy sure could use an overhaul in the Total War series. The upcoming Total War: Three Kingdoms is going to be shaking things up a bit, if Creative Assembly's massive two part dev-blog post on the subject is any indication. Personal relationships are going to be important if you plan on uniting China under your reign, and while two nations…

Yakuza Kiwami might be closer to a PC launch than expected

Best worst crime-dad Kazuma Kiryu might be making a return to PC sooner than expected, if the whirring coming from Steam's database is any indication. We've known for a while that Yakuza Kiwami (a remake of the first in Sega's brawl-o-RPG series) was headed to PC, following up on the successful launch of 80s-set prequel Yakuza Zero - we just didn't know when. As reported…

As is the way with Total War, the ports are handled by long-running portpeeps Feral Interactive. While running Windows games on Macs and Linux b0x0rs is easier than it once was, especially with Valve working on Steam's new…

Total War: Napoleon, Empire, and Medieval II now include DLC for free

'Definitive Editions' of Total War: Empire, Total War: Medieval II, and Total War: Napoleon include all their expansions and DLC and bits, and folks who already own the base games on Steam have been upgraded to their fancy new versions for free. That's a tidy little gift from developers Creative Assembly, and gets a total phwoar from me. Despite what the name might suggest, the…

Total Warhammer 2 now sailing the Vampire Coast

Consider your timbers shivered, quivered, spooked, and skeeved, as Total War: Warhammer II has set sail for the Vampire Coast. Crews of undead pirates fielding drowned zombies, giant crabs, seabeasts, shipwreck golems, and other such nautical horrors are the focus of the new expansion released today, Curse Of The Vampire Coast. Accompanying the paid expansion is a free update, revitalising the Vampire Counts faction, kinda…

Football Manager 2019 has a demo and all

"You might go in dreaming of being the next Steve Cotterill, but Football Manager 2019 makes you want to be Pep Guardiola," John Robertson said in our Football Manager 2019 review. And if you don't know what that means, maybe you should play the game's demo. Yup, following the manage 'em up's launch on Friday, demos are available for both full-on Football Manager 2019 and…

Feature: Dream Machine

Football Manager 2019 review

For those without much free time or a pre-existing, intimate understanding of its framework, understanding Football Manager’s enormous locker room of riches has been a problem. You might be the most eager wannabe digital gaffer of all time, but if you can’t digest the tools required to motivate players, scout new ones and combine their skills on the pitch, then your only legacy will be…

Team Sonic Racing delayed into May 2019

"Make haste!" Sonic is always saying, but even that zippy fella knows that too much haste will see you running face-first into a wall of spikes. And that's why Team Sonic Racing, the new spin-off racing game from the makers of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed, has been delayed. Previously slated to launch this winter, the game is now due on May 21st, 2019. Team…

Feature: Kiryu is the best boy

The Joy Of karaoke in Yakuza 0

Within the first hour of Yakuza 0, Kazuma Kiryu has to re-evaluate most of what he’s come to believe in. The crime family he’s been loyal to actually has no problem with selling him out, and Kiryu has to somehow prove his innocence in a murder plot, as well as stop a large-scale turf war. Over the course of many conversations, Kiryu is quickly established…

Feature: Faster than the speed of friendship

On British wackiness and cooperation in Team Sonic Racing

I'm no Sonichead, but I still got a kick out of Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Instead of making you turn into planes and boats, Sumo Digital's new upcoming kart racer makes you turn to your friends. You race as a team of three, passing power-ups between you while boosting behind each other's bottoms. I sat down with Team Sonic Racing design director Derek Littlewood…

Total War: Warhammer 2 adds zombie pirates in next expansion

The next expansion to Total War: Warhammer 2 is to set our spines and timbers shivering alike, as it will add the undead pirates of the Vampire Coast. Creative Assembly today announced Curse Of The Vampire Coast, due to launch on November 8th. It'll add the damned pirates of that cursed coast, who are all fighting to gain control of a giant terrible sea monster.…

Feature: Now with an RPS masterpiece

Have You Played… Jet Set Radio?

For a time, you couldn't avoid games that had cel shading, and arguably it was all down to one little graffiti-tagging game. Jet Set Radio, or Jet Grind Radio for our American friends, has players vandalise the streets with spray cans, all while avoiding getting caught by the authorities.

Total War: Three Kingdoms begins its conquest on March 7th

Below, a new trailer introducing us to the Yellow Turban Rebellion, expendable early-game enemies in many a Dynasty Warriors game, now turned fully playable DLC faction. The Yellow Turban pack will be…

Valkyria Chronicles 4 is out now

A ragtag group of animes, their doctor dog, and their pet tank are out to save semi-magical notEurope from the notNazis during notWW2 through the powers of friendship and turn-based tactical squad combat in Valkyria Chronicles 4, released today. While the first game in Sega's series took six years to come from consoles to PC, this one is nicely launching on the same day for…

Feature: Gather the tropes

Valkyria Chronicles 4 review

When it first came out a decade ago, Valkyria Chronicles came off as a delightfully odd duck: a sort of doe-eyed strategy JRPG that gave the Western-dominated strategy genre a much-needed taste of pastel anime charm. But its hybrid of third-person movement with turn-based tactics was relegated to consoles until a PC release in 2016. Now, for better or worse, Valkyria Chronicles 4 offers a…

Gunslinging JRPG Resonance Of Fate hits PC fashionably late on October 18th

Shoot guns, make cash, buy clothes, look fabulous, repeat. That's Resonance Of Fate in a nutshell, minus its bizarre and creative combat, puzzle-based world exploration and strange setting. Tri-Ace's gunslinging dieselpunk RPG never really caught on when it first launched on consoles in 2010, but I reckon its mix of "Valkyria Chronicles and a John Woo movie" is worth a second look. Previously hinted at…

The best Japanese games to play on PC

After spending much of this decade catching up with the rest of the world, the Japanese games industry is truly back, and PC gamers have been reaping the rewards of this renaissance. It’s taken time for Japanese developers and publishers to get on board, especially with consoles and smartphones remaining the dominant gaming platforms in their native country. But as classic console franchises finally make…
