Feature: Hectic of Troy

Hands-on preview – Total War Saga: Troy promises demanding, fast-paced strategy

Total War Saga: Troy is out on August 13th and will be free at launch, and having played a demo battle which pitted Achilles’ Acheans against Hector’s Trojans, I’m intrigued to play more. I've chosen the word "intrigued" deliberately, here. Because while the tactical depth of what I played was impressive, and rooted itself emphatically in its semi-mythical setting, its multi-skilled infantry and attention-demanding heroes…

Manchester United are suing Football Manager developers over use of their name

As big sports organisations are wont to do, Manchester United are getting touchy about the use of their name. The English Premier League have filed a complaint against Sega and Sports Interactive for the use of the team's name in the Football Manager series. They take issue with how the series may "benefit from an association with the club’s winning culture and its brand values" without…

Look for a nod to noted Total Warhammer 2 fan Henry Cavill in its next DLC

When he's not playing everyone's favourite Rivia man in Netflix's The Witcher, Henry Cavill likes to chill out with some Total War: Warhammer 2. It's a fact that hasn't gone unnoticed by Creative Assembly, either. They've only gone and put a nod to him in the game's upcoming DLC, The Warden & The Paunch. And there's even a Witcher reference thrown in there for good…

Have You Played… Yakuza 0?

Hype can often be a deterrent if you’re late to the party. If you have someone screaming at you to watch The Wire for months on end, then chances are you’ll either bounce straight off it or come out the other end thinking it was lesser than it actually was. During Yakuza’s second go around of capturing the imagination of those in the West, I…

Total War: Elysium trailer shows the card game looking Hearthstone-y

Creative Assembly today revealed Total War: Elysium, a free-to-play card battle game based on uh, history I guess? After announcing Elysium in August 2019, today they showed more in a trailer and announced it's coming to PC later this year. Total War: Elysium will have historical leaders and forces throw down, and it all looks quite Heartstone-y. Watch the trailer below and you'll see.

Looks like Yakuza: Like A Dragon is coming to PC

Going by a little Steam database leak, it seems that Yakuza: Like A Dragon is coming to PC - and presumably soon-ish. Sega's wonderful beefy-dads-with-hearts-of-gold RPG series only started coming to PC in 2018, 13 years after it started on PlayStations, and now it looks like we're skipping a few games ahead. Set after Yakuza 6, Like A Dragon introduces a whole new star, turning…

After eight years, Phantasy Star Online 2 arrives on western PCs next month

Lasting just shy of a decade in the MMORPG space is no small feat. Launching afresh after you've been running steady for so many years? That ain't no walk in the park, either. After making it big in Japan following its 2012 launch, Sega's sci-fi action-RPG Phantasy Star Online 2 finally makes its western PC debut in May. For North Americans. Sort of.

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…

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…
