Total War: Three Kingdoms rides again in August with Eight Princes

Apparently conquering ancient China once isn't enough for some of you. Fortunately, those still hungry for conflict in Total War: Three Kingdoms only have a few weeks to wait until its first big DLC. Due on August 8th, the Eight Princes chapter pack adds a new campaign continuing some years after the events of the main story, and resumes the war-totalling from the year 291…

Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD rolls onto PC this winter

The good news is that Sega's speedy ball-roller (and party game collection) Super Monkey Ball is now officially coming to PC, confirming a recent leak. The less good news is that Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD is a re-release of the not-especially-great Wii game in the series. Still, it was held back by its extremely awkward tilt-centric Wii controls, which will most likely be excised…

SolSeraph descends from the heavens but may not have stuck the landing

It got a little lost in last week's flurry of activity, but SolSeraph -- ACE Team's tribute to genre-blending SNES gem ActRaiser -- is out, though sadly not heralded by a celestial chorus. Staying close to its inspirations, it's half hack n' slash platformer, half real-time strategy about a god reclaiming their land from monsters and demons in the name of their human followers. I've not had…

Super Monkey Ball to return via PC says Taiwan’s rating committee

The Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee have let slip a game before the publisher were ready, and I'm rather excited about this one. Sega's Super Monkey Ball series is apparently returning, and the next game in the series is rated for a PC release, too. While technically an unconfirmed leak, they've a good track record recently - the Spyro Reignited PC port they leaked in…

Sega and Amplitude want you to pick two (of five) free Mega Drive games to keep

What 4X strategy games have to do with old Sega Mega Drive games (or Genesis, if you're uncultured), I'll never know, but Amplitude Studios (of the Endless series) are giving away a stack of old Sega stuff on their Games2Gether page this weekend. You'll have to sign up on their site and have the games automatically redeemed to your Steam account, but you can pick two…

Total War: Three Kingdoms launches mod support

Official mod support launched for Total War: Three Kingdoms this week, letting players create new units, add new battle maps, tweak balance, pretty it up, and more. Who knows what else we might see over time? And can someone add a proper dating sim to meet hot new kingdoms in my area? The tools do have some big limitations, mind, so don't expect mods with…

The best tutorials in PC games

I reckon that when I was growing up I spent longer reading the manuals for games than I did playing them. The thicker the better (as the someone said to the etc.), and if it were up to me every game would come with a chunky instruction booklet. The standard these days is the in-game tutorial, and many of them feel like afterthoughts. Either they’re…

Have You Played… The Deadly Tower of Monsters?

You know that age-old idea that games should be more like FILMS because films are ART, and games should be like ART too? Well, I think there's a very good reason games shouldn't be more like films, because then we'd have more games like The Deadly Tower of Monsters on our hands, which, frankly - *record scratch* Sorry, everyone, Katharine from the future here, taking…

SolSeraph is a platformer RTS hybrid by the Zeno Clash crew due July 10th

Ace Team, the loons behind Zeno Clash and Rock Of Ages, have just announced their secret project and it's just weeks away. Out on July 10th, SolSeraph is a hybrid platformer and tower defence RTS that they call "a homage to some inspiring titles from the 16 bit era". I'd guess that's a lawyer-dodging way of saying that they've gone and made a spiritual successor to…

The game's store page confirms that it was removed from sale at the request of the publisher, Sega, whose rights for the game has expired.

E3 2019 games – every game confirmed

They just keep coming don't they? A lot of games were announced at E3 2019, things that we didn't know about, as well as stuff that's previously announced, or expansions to already released games. Now, to the casual outsider, what we're doing might seem absolutely nuts, but we thought we'd put together an alphabetical list of all the PC games that have been confirmed to…

Phantasy Star Online 2 comes to America (but not Europe) in spring 2020

Bordering on a miracle, Sega have confirmed an English version of Phantasy Star Online 2 after seven years of their teaser site saying it was coming soon. Sonic Team's free-to-play action RPG has been a Japanese online gaming staple for yonks, but the publisher have been deathly silent about an English release for years. Announced to much surprise during the Microsoft E3 presser, it's headed…

Have You Played… Sonic Mania Plus?

With Sonic Mania, a modder was put in charge of creating a new Sonic game with official backing. Decades after Sonic the Hedgehog came to PC, the modding scene had shown some incredible creativity, from a version of Sonic 1 where Dr. Robotnik is capturing animals, to another where you go fishing. But one of the more popular mods came in the form of Sonic…

Team Sonic Racing power-slides into stores today

If we ignore the wonky Sonic R, then Sonic The Hedgehog has had a pretty good track record as far as mascot kart-racers go. Team Sonic Racing is out today and the latest from Sumo Digital, formerly of the excellent Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. This time, they've narrowed their focus a bit, swapping transforming omni-vehicles for regular cars  and focusing solely on Sonic and…

It’s a sombre moment, a cemetery visit with your adoptive daughter to pay respects to loved ones killed in terrible circumstances. You bow your head and inspect the graves. Then…

My dads are back in town, you see, now that Yakuza Kiwami 2 is out on PC. Mobster-with-a-heart-of-gold Kazuma Kiryu will once again roam around Tokyo and Osaka in this brawler-RPG sequel, becoming a father figure to total…

Sega buy Two Point Hospital studio

Sega have snapped up another PC strategy studio, today announcing they've bought Two Point Hospital developers Two Point Studios. They haven't stated the English studio's price, but I trust payment was made in the form of a giant novelty cheque. Sega note that Two Point have "several" unannounced projects in the pipeline, in a dry business-y way, while the studio themselves just shouted on Twitter…
