Real-time strategy games have grown into vast, complex affairs over the years, but Bad North isn’t interested in adding to the genre. Instead, it just wants to strip everything back until there’s barely an RTS at all.

For such a popular genre, there really isn’t much to choose from when it comes to quality city-building games these days. There’s Cities: Skylines and...that’s it, unless you want to pick up a classic SimCity. So firing up Pocket City, and loving it, has been one of the nicest surprises of the year. Doubly so because…

There’s finally a new Star Ocean game after 2016's barebones Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness. Unfortunately, Star Ocean: Anamnesis, the latest entry, free-to-play, only on smartphones, and a gacha game to boot.

Yes, the new Command & Conquer game EA announced at E3 2018 is a free-to-play online only mobile game.
