Destiny, a video game in which players spend hours and hours dropping out of strike playlists, is still full of secrets. Today’s involves a little old place called the Vault of Glass.
Cities Skylines is awesome. But it’s also weird, in that it only ever takes place during the day. An upcoming expansion will fix that (and hopefully add a lot more than just lights; that Vice City-esque font is promising).
Paradox Interactive, the studio behind one of the best strategy games of modern times, are for one of their next titles moving past the ages of sword and horse, into the age of starships and aliens with a game called Stellaris. I couldn’t be more psyched.
I think I'm gonna name my firstborn son "Cities: Skylines modding community." I pretty much have to, at this point.
Love Borderlands' cartoony vistas and pastel-colored expanses? Well, now you can make your game of Cities: Skylines look just like it—minus roughly a million gallons of blood, of course.
First-person? In a city builder? It might sound strange, but there's nothing quite like getting your city humming along to a perfect, efficient rhythm and then having a leisurely look around. Now you can see all of Cities: Skylines' smallest details.
Cities: Skylines is a game coming in hot. The People want a good city-building game to play, and it's been a long time since they got one. So there's a surprising amount of excitement and expectation for Colossal's attempt at fixing SimCity's mistakes.
Europa Universalis IV is a very good video game, but there are always ways to make it a little better. In this case, by adding some DLC that's not only poignant, but makes the game a little more realistic as well.
When it was first announced, I was worried that Crusader Kings II's Way of Life DLC would be bad news for my spare time and even worse news for my sleep levels. I was right to worry.
As we've seen with its patch notes, Crusader Kings II is a game that, taken out of context, sounds completely insane. The game's forums are no different.
Yes, there is a lot of developer diary blah blah blah going on in this video, but there is also a lot of raw, direct footage of Ancient Space's gameplay in action. And it looks pretty cool.
Paradox, you had me at "single-player, real-time strategy title that puts the player in command of a fleet".
Something tells me people haven't forgotten about SimCity's notorious online debacle. That something's name? Cities: Skylines, which will also allow for extensive modding and "massive" cities.
I'm not saying all video game trailers should be narrated in jazzy, dulcet tones, but it sure beats dubstep. This promo video for Leviathan: Warships—a strategy game that will be out for PC, Mac, iOS, and Android on April 30—is by far my favorite trailer of 2013 so far. Enjoy it!
Paradox's March of the Eagles was released this week on PC, and if you've been at all swayed by my love of Crusader Kings II, the video above may have you thinking "wonderful, this is like that, only with muskets".
One of PC gaming's finest co-op experiences is coming to a rectangular productivity-enhancing device near you. How many times will you "accidentally" kill your friends in Magicka: Wizards of the Square Tablet?
Okay, I have mixed feelings about A Game of Dwarves, a new strategy-sim game that the folks at Paradox will release on Steam next week.
