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.…

Humankind vid diary gives another peek at Amplitude’s Civ ’em up

The prospect of the studio behind Endless Space and Endless Legend trying their hands at a Civilization-style 4X strategy game is an enticing one, enough for us to declare Humankind one of 2020's most exciting new games. Amplitude Studios aren't yet ready to tell us when exactly we'll get to play Humankind, but they are ready to starting telling us more about it. The first…

Sega Europe start using recyclable packaging for all PC games

After a satisfactory trial run with Football Manager last year, Sega Europe have announced that they now plan to use "fully recyclable packaging" for all of their physical PC game releases. Their initial recyclable boxes are made of recycled cardboard with recycled paper manuals too. This scheme will start in earnest with the launch of Total War: Rome II's new Enemy At The Games Edition,…

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. Mandate Of Heaven is its name, and getting stuck into the Yellow Turban Rebellion is its game. Whether you buy it or not, more characters, units, and…

Total War: Three Kingdoms next DLC is a prequel

The next story DLC for Total War: Three Kingdoms will be a wee bit of a prequel, bringing new starts a scant eight years before the main campaign kicks off.

What if the studio behind Endless Space and Endless Legend took a crack at Civilization? It's an exciting thought and looking to be an exciting game: Humankind, due to launch next year. Following the announcement in August, Amplitude Studios showed more of the historical 4X strategy game in motion with its first "gameplay trailer" tonight at The Game Awards. The video is mostly shots panning…

Sports Interactive have been putting these things out annually for years, improving the nitty-gritty of managing a team of fit football lads every 12 months. This year's edition is once again missing…

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.

Modder Superior – Total War: Warhammer II

If mega-scale fantasy violence is your thing, Total War: Warhammer 2 (Total Warhammer to its friends) is a grand old time, and an affordable alternative to wasting your savings on miniatures. Earlier Total War games arguably needed mods to shine, but Creative Assembly's recent output hasn't had to lean so hard on user-made expansions and refinements. Not that this has stopped players from trying. While…

Football Manager 2020 “throwing down the gauntlet” with eco-friendly box

One of the few PC series even sold in boxes nowadays, Football Manager will switch from ye olde plastic DVD case to "eco-friendly" packaging with this year's game. They've hit upon a revolutionary new material for PC game packaging: cardboard. Unlike the horse-sized PC game boxes of the 90s, this is a wee gatefold affair made from recycled cardboard and vegetable inks and things. Sports…

Endless Space 2 rouses an ancient race in Awakening expansion

Amplitude Studios may be working on a new Civ-ish 4X strategy game retelling human history, the recently-announced Humankind, but they're not out of wild and fanciful sci-fi histories either. Today they released a new Endless Space 2 expansion adding an interesting new faction named the Nakalim. They're a once-great empire who went dormant after their gods were killed and are now trying to secure their…

Feature: Start new turn

A first look at Humankind, Amplitude’s new historical 4X beast

To the untrained eye (eyes that haven't spent many an hour trained on an exquisitely detailed topographical map, checking on all corners of your immense empire), Humankind probably looks like any other 4X game where you shuffle units around and micromanage different settlements. But according to the hands-off demonstration shown at Gamescom this year, it ain't. 4X stands for explore, expand, exploit and exterminate, the…

Football Manager 2020 coming in November, and to Google Stadia too

Sports Interactive today announced their next annual Football Manager sequel, though they don't have much to say about it. What they do say is that as well as Windows and Mac, this year's kickabout management sim will launch on Stadia, Google's cloud gaming platform. SI make the unusual claim that all those processors Google have hanging from balloons in their clouds will actually make FM2020…

Humankind, the latest and most ambitious 4X strategy game from Endless Legend creators Amplitude Studios, looks to revitalise the historical 4X genre and nab the crown from the titanic and venerable Civilization series. And look damn pretty while it does so, too. But it's not just looks that Amplitude are hoping to win out on with Humankind. We'll go over everything we know about Humankind…

Yakuza producer hints at rest of series coming to PC

Sega this week announced western releases for another three Yakuza games, another three stories of kind-hearted mobsters helping everyone offering fatherly advice to children and adults alike and smashing thugs with bicycles. Yakuza 3, 4, 5 are the latest coming our way and... well, Sega haven't actually confirmed PC releases yet. Seeing as the series grew on PlayStation, it's starting there. But asked this week…
