Modder Superior: another tour for Jagged Alliance 2

Jagged Alliance 2 is still one of the best turn-based squad tactics games around, its own sequels falling short of its consummate majesty. Part XCOM, part A-Team, players manage and command a ragtag band of vaguely cartoonish mercenaries on a mission to liberate an impoverished banana republic from its tyrannical queen. JA2 has also spawned an insular but extremely productive mod scene, mostly on The…

Feature: Cyborg imitation

Have You Played… Earth 2140?

Command & Conquer will go down in history as a real-time strategy giant. Earth 2140 will be half-remembered as an imitator, a game that took as much of its lifeforce from Terminator 2 as it did from Westwood’s soldier-bossing. But I got to play this on a demo disc for PC Zone or something, and that makes it special, OK?

Caw Blimey: Raven’s Cry Is Being Actually Finished

When oh-so-edgy pirate RPG Raven's Cry [official site] came out in January, it was buggy, silly, boring and... well, rubbish. But bless 'em, developers Reality Pump and publishers TopWare love their gamebaby enough to be, er, actually properly finishing it. A big old update is coming soon-ish, and will see Raven's Cry relaunch under the new name Vendetta: Curse of Raven's Cry. This'll be Raven's…

Raven’s Cry’s Lead Is Actually Named Christopher Raven

Oh what a magnificent occasion this is. Raven's Cry, you see, is a REAL THING about a pirate named Christopher Raven. I've been waiting for this day ever since I started referring to Halo's main character as John Halo, Mark of the Ninja's as Markof the Soviet assassin, and Call of Duty's as whoever. Better still, Raven's Cry actually seems like it could be worth…

Scivelation Is The Name Of A Game, For Some Reason

Scivelation. BluesNews spotted that the Unreal-powered sci-fi action game from Ukrainian devs Black Wing, which was first announced in 2010, now has a "Q4 2014" release date from Germanic publishing house Topware Interactive. The game itself consists in controlling two characters: the shooty man, and the stealth lady. Getting through the levels apparently relies on employing the skills of both. Also, because I cannot be…

Iron Sky: Invasion Demo Dogfights Moon-Nazis

Topware send word that there are Mac and PC demos for their game of the silly movie Iron Sky, Iron Sky: Invasion. They say: "“Iron Sky: Invasion” is a space fighter simulator, calling to mind such classics as the legendary... You-Know-Which series - further enhanced with strategy and RPG elements." I honestly don't know which, but a new space combat game is always welcome at…

Planets Under Attack Looks Busy, Colourful

Topware's swarm-based tower defense variant, Planets Under Attack, looks sort of perfect. It sees various brightly coloured planets orbiting in off-kilter star systems, and unloading huge torrents of space-fleets each other. Vaguely reminiscent of Eufloria, I suppose, only where that was a subtle ambient tune, this is more like a gilded pop torrent. Observe the trailer below.

Unto Two Worlds II, Too

First there was fantasy RPG Two Worlds and now there is two of it. Them. The announcement about the twoness of Two Worlds was made today, as TopWare Interactive and Reality Pump released this extraordinary sentence into the wild: "“Two Worlds II” presents a totally new gamer experience, one in which 2 years of intensive development has enabled quantum leaps in all spheres: completely overhauled…
