The best tactic we’ve come up with is the Cybrannosaurus Bubblebath. A hovering triangle wafts into your base and drops a dinosaur on you. The dinosaur is large, about the size of a dinosaur, and has a robotic head that breathes fire. A moment later, 25 translucent spheres pop up around it.
From the moment Supreme Commander was first unveiled as a successor to the real-time strategy classic Total Annihilation - complete with massive armies, tons of unit types, and the much-lauded ability to play the game with two monitors at once - we knew that this was going to be a franchise for the truly hardcore. Our suspicions were confirmed when we booted up the first game up and had our asses handed to us by some brutal artificial intelligence. Now Forged Alliance, a stand-alone expansion,
Imagine being thrown into the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This will help you to understand what it’s like to play Supreme Ruler 2020, a complex global strategy game whose woefully inadequate tutorial and manual leave you treading water with something bumping against your leg. Running a country is hard work - a deep supply model, 300 researchable technologies, economics, diplomacy, and warfare all require your attention, and this feat
A quick flashbang takes care of the only guard, the locks are defeated in a matter of seconds, and any chance of mistaken identity is instantly washed away by the wallpaper - hundreds of newspaper clippings of recent college disappearances pasted up around empty cans of petrol and booby traps.
In the final room, a terrified girl rolls on the ground, her hands tied, her face covered by an eyeless white mask that dangles down from the ceiling. One last door opens into the killer's underground
A moment ago, we dropped a drunk for not cooperating. He folded his arms and refused to be handcuffed. It took a Tazer to the forehead to get him to oblige. Boy, the Stetchkovs picked the wrong SWAT team to mess with. Seriously, if we have no remorse zapping helpless junkies in the face, then the real bad guys have no chance whatsoever.
SWAT 4's plot-free carnage-romp through the underbelly of Boston is swept aside in this fine expansion pack of eight missions; but you'll need the original

You: a sentient marble, lonely in a world of physics. Them: magnets, air currents, ropes, cloth, cannons, helium, friction, spikes, whirling machinery and your ultimate nemesis, gravity. Your only ally as you wildly swish the mouse to roll drunkenly over Switchball's precariously floating levels is yourself, or specifically, other versions of yourself. Your ball, you see, can be switched.
Become Metal, of the family Ball. He's big and slow to get up to speed, but a heart of cold
Swishy hair, swashbuckling swordplay, extremely tight bodices, buoyant boobs, and 17th century aristocrats that dual-wield pistols welcome you to North America's colonial period, as seen through the eyes of Korean game developers.
Sword of the New World: Granado Espada features a new take to the old standard of massively multiplayer online games with plenty of animals to kill, lots of letters to deliver, and a gazillion little children who've lost their mother/sister/brother/sheep. But,
You've always meant to try a turn-based strategy game, but in light of customary distractions (school, job, sex life... anything that plays like Doom), you've avoided the genre like Homer Simpson fleeing an athletic trainer. Turn-based games are for spreadsheet sissies, you say, secretly wishing they'd make one accessible enough to fit your fidgety lifestyle. Your clandestine wishes have indeed come true: Sword of the Stars is the best candidate in years to make "you go, I go" interstellar
Loved by its fans and missed by almost everyone else, Sword of the Stars was perhaps the best RT4X game of the last year. The RT4X genre is "real-time Civilization in space." Take charge of a race; lead them through space to glory, to the detriment of all other races.
But first, the bad news: Born of Blood still looks like it's been created using the 3D digital equivalent of poster paint and potato shapes. Whether you'd find the graphics charming or infantile is a matter of taste, but SotS
Syndicate is reborn. 19 years after Bullfrog's cult classic, the franchise has been reinvented as a first-person shooter placed in the capable hands of Starbreeze, last seen retooling The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness. How does its sleek vision of the future fare versus the team's prior efforts?
