A new collection of concept art reveals details of a Halo Wars 3 pitch that featured space battles and XCOM-esque base management.
Let’s keep this simple: Total War: Warhammer was a very good strategy game. Total War: Warhammer 2 is better.
I had some very nice things to say about Total War: Warhammer a year ago when I reviewed it, but over the last week I thought I’d check back in and see how it was faring after 12 months of updates and DLC. I was happy to find that a very good game has got even better.
Sega and Creative Assembly announced a new Total War game over the weekend. It’s a sequel to last years excellent Total War: Warhammer.
The nice thing about Halo Wars 2 is that it works.
One of the greatest PC strategy games of all time is now available on the iPad. Looks like a fairly straightforward port, too.
I was so ready to hate this game.
There was a good chunk of time there when the Total War series was one of the best things on the PC. Its combination of real-time battles and turn-based planning made it a lot of people’s—mine included—perfect strategy game. Then along came Total War: Rome II.
Creative Assembly, the guys behind the Total War series—some of my favourite games—have along with publisher Sega tried something slightly different for their next release’s DLC. And it hasn’t gone down too well.
You’ve been wondering what Total War: Warhammer would look and play like, right? A new walkthrough video gives a look at the units, leaders and gameplay of the mash-up strategy title.
If you were worried that the announcement of Total War: Warhammer (why not Total Warhammer?) is coming at the expense of proper Total War games, Creative Assembly has told PC Gamer the Warhammer title is being developed by a “completely separate team. The historic thread goes on uninterrupted.” Phew.
Just as I was talking about Total War, colour and character, here we go: an art book featuring concept and promo pieces dating all the way back to the very beginning of the series.
I am a massive Total War fan, but that fandom comes with the knowledge that the games are far from perfect. And near the top of the list of things wrong with Total War has long been the series' janky AI.
People have been expecting this for over two years now, but Creative Assembly and Sega have finally gone and announced a Total War: WARHAMMER game. In about the most anticlimactic way possible.
Alien: Isolation can be a pretty tense, terrifying game. But that experience depends on having things in the game actually work like they're supposed to—which isn't always the case for everyone.
Knock, knock. Who's there? An alien. It kills you.
If you're not a fan of the Total War series, let me clue you in on how they're normally announced. Fans will spend months, maybe even years hoping for their favourite historical era to be revealed as the game's setting. When it's inevitably shown to be something else, everyone gets bummed out, but then finds something…
One thing I noticed playing Alien Isolation was its unpredictability. Multiple replays showed the alien and other characters never did the same thing twice, which is entirely the point, explains creative lead Alistair Hope.
Isn't it great there'll be a way to play Alien Isolation using the film's original cast? Wasn't it stupid that this mode was announced as a preorder bonus? Well, "good" news: the content is going to be available to everyone, not just those preordering the game.
