  • News Strategy RPG Shadows: Awakening Announced for PS4

    Nice name

    Mindbogglingly generic name aside, Shadows: Awakening (really? It's really called that? Jeez), looks like it could be a good slice of strategy role-playing, and it's coming to PlayStation 4 in 2018. Publisher Kalypso Media teased the title earlier in the month.

    Review Vikings - Wolves of Midgard

    Howling for you

    Vikings - Wolves of Midgard is an action role-playing game stuffed with blood, beards, and loot. It's immediately comparable to other dungeon-crawling hack and slashers like Diablo, right down to the near identical radial equipment menu. Vikings certainly doesn't shy away from its inspirations, but it's so by-the-numbers that you do...

    Everybody wants to rule the world

    Strategy games aren't normally associated with console gaming, instead favouring PC, Mac, and Linux as their platform of choice.

    Review Tropico 5

    Havana good time

The likes of Theme Park and Theme Hospital were among the most popular releases on the PSone, but as the genre increased in complexity on computers, these console ports became increasingly less common. Tropico 5, then, is something of a rarity: a...

  • News El Presidente Arrives on PS4 from 24th April in Tropico 5

    Time to take charge

    While there are definitely people still disgruntled with the PlayStation 4's lineup, we've been impressed by the sheer variety of software that's hit Sony's latest machine. One genre that it's been sorely lacking in, however, is the city building simulation – but fortunately, Tropico 5 will fill that gap from 24th April in...

  • News Tropico 5 Laying Foundations on the PlayStation 4

    Sun, sand, and taxes

    Niche tongue-in-cheek construction simulation Tropico 5 has extended its release blueprints to the PlayStation 4, meaning that the franchise will make its debut on a Sony system later this year. Previous entries in the series have remained exclusive to PC, Mac, and Xbox 360 platforms, but the simplistic architecture of the...
