Lining Up For A Feud

Just asking for a good bash? Sounds like Trolling is about to get what's coming to it, but that's Viking talk for you, as you shall discover in Megapop's light-hearted free-to-play browser-based Trolls vs Vikings.

Charges Augmented

Power levels amped. Signal has been crosschecked. Contact can no longer be denied - so it is that we register a spike at Arcen Games, making us come to terms with the upcoming Bionic Dues.

A High Flyer

Permission for take-off granted. Low-altitude mobile platforms conquered, it's time for real lift to be gained and true battle to be met by Sid Meier's Ace Patrol, which now arises to Steam heights.

Making Its Way Through

A contender rises in Tempe, Arizona. The incredibly well populated segment of card games is about to gain one more entry to its ranks, courtesy of Second Wind Games, which herald from the aforementioned location, championing a certain Passage: Digital Tactical Card Game.

Bound To Ascend

Standing out in discretion. The apparent contradiction is nonetheless a fitting description for Longbow Games' daring upcoming real-time strategy game Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Caesar which has only recently earned a place in Kalypso Media's publishing roster.

Digitally Settled

It's important to get new beginnings. And even widely recognized, and quite popular, modern boardgaming classics can benefit from colonizing new territories where familiarity is not as great. The developers at United Soft Media realized this and bravely brought Settlers of Catan to the digital realms this month.

Fantasy No End

We dream therefore we exist. What would life be indeed without dreaming up things to enrich our existence. Luckily we have game developers like Amplitude Studios who ever seek to perpetuate that spirit with us, now announcing the conjuring of a new 4x fantasy strategy game - Endless Legend.

About To Burst

It's XCOM: Enemy Within. We've all heard the rumours, things certainly couldn't be contained much longer and now it has been officially confirmed by Firaxis - we shall soon be empowered to better fight the alien menace by means of a new, special expansion, for XCOM: Enemy Unknown!

Your Turn, General

Systems are going online. That's what we're hearing from Düsseldorf-based Blue Byte, which have broken radio silence to broadcast they're working alongside Funatics Software in the just-revealed free-to-play browser-based Panzer General Online.

Coming To Market

We knew they'd get around to it. The folks over at had already teased it and now they're crossing yet another bridge to deliver in full the intel regarding the upcoming new module for Combat Mission Battle for Normandy - Market Garden.

The Emperor's Hand

The faithful increase. This in good part due to the dark age of technology we live in, bearing fruit yet again with the blessings of Games Workshop, which has granted the scholars at HeroCraft permission to oversee the creation of Warhammer 40.000: Space Wolf.


Some use 'em, some want 'em. We're referring to brains, an important asset, and wichever side of that fence you happen to be on, staying on your toes is what you'll want to do to succeed in World Zombination, Proletariat's upcoming game.

Monstrous Fight

This might not get ugly. With proper planning and given the 3D renditions employed it could actually get rather appealing for fans of turn-based tactical strategy willing to give Rubicon Development's Combat Monsters a fighting chance.

Thinking Big

There's an appetite for reaching new heights. And it seems to be spreading to all corners of the known universe, including Blind Mind Studios' quadrant, apparently, as it has been recently disclosed that a sizable new real-time space 4X strategy game, Star Ruler 2, is nearing.

To Space Milord!

Subspace comms intercepted. A contact is surreptitiously on approach, with regal ambitions by all appearances. We thusly mark the bearing of Arkavi Studios' tactical turn-based space strategy game, Star Lords.
