Awesome bosses, killer dungeons, and the art of keeping your significant other happy are just a few reasons to give this action-RPG a spin...
Now, were not all history buffs, but were sure this is a game that - aside from three fantasy missions - never wavers from historical accuracy. Luckily, Panzer Tactics DS isn't just for the WWII fan boys. It makes an effort to give the rest of us a chance to bungle our way through the game.
The game begins with the Axis campaign, moves through the Soviets and concludes with the Allied campaign. You'll receive orders before each battle and maybe learn a bit of history before you're done. Your
Decades of tabletop wargames have lived and died on one central conceit: the hex-based map. German wargaming factory CDV has adopted this six-sided cartography and plans to put it to use in the first ever World War II strategy game for the Nintendo DS this fall, Panzer Tactics DS.
The tactical possibilities of hex-based games are much more complex than what is possible on a simple grid. Not only enabling unit movement in six directions, hex-based wargames also demonstrate clearly the
All we could think while demoing Papo & Yo was just how bad we felt for the creator's past. See, Papo & Yo on the surface is an endearing platforming puzzle game about the relationship between protagonist Quico and his best friend, Monster. Quico is a young boy who runs around an idealized favela, or slum, while solving puzzles with his robot friend Lula. Monster is a pink rhinoceros beast – not unlike Barney the dinosaur – who is needed...
It's been a year since we've seen the game and we've fallen in love with it all over again...
Question. Why has nobody ever managed to develop a game that can come even close to dislodging Counter-Strike from its lofty perch atop the strategic online shooter pile? Answer? Because no-one has ever tried taking the CS template, retaining all that is good and adding in an original slant, thats why. Well, at least not until now they havent.
Created by fledgling developers Acony - a team formed from an array of industry veterans - Parabellum seeks to infuse the Counter-Strike template with
Si vis pacem, para bellum - “If you want peace, prepare for war.” Parabellum’s slogan has a dramatic ring, but it doesn’t tell us much about its content. Anyone know the Latin for, “If you want a free, quick FPS that uses microtransactions, download our game?”

It's sad but true: point-and-click adventure games are nearly extinct. The Myst series has finally expired after a long and storied life while many other franchises have died in captivity. However, weve recently had a first look at Paradise, an easy-going interactive adventure from the makers of the award-winning Syberia, 2002s adventure game of the year. After a long hiatus, the genre could use a jump-start.
Paradises stylish and mysterious African setting looks like a great locale for
Many modern gamers are uninterested in classically-styled point-and-click adventure games. And admittedly, simply wandering around gorgeous, pre-rendered backgrounds and mouse-clicking on various bits of the set to see what happens isn't exactly an adrenaline rush.
However, these games can still tell a great story and offer up some clever puzzles, so we're glad a few people are still crafting them. Paradise is the latest from a fellow named Benoit Sokol, known by some as the marquee mind
Contrary to that ker-azy title, ParaWorld isn't actually based on the SAS, the Special Olympics or the X-Files. It's actually an RTS with an emphasis on sharp teeth and rank breath...
ParaWorld's real strength stems from the dino factor, which an incredible amount of imagination and silky art skills have obviously gone into. From vicious little raptors, robo scorpions and Pteradons packing rocket launchers to Titans complete with full body armour, they're stunningly animated and beautifully
