Platform: PC
January 27, 2016
For 30 years, the Romance of the Three Kingdoms series have taken players into the world based on the beloved Chinese novel of the same name; to be a part of one of the most tumultuous times of history and privy to the political machinations between power-hungry factions makes for a perfect strategic experience, especially when each iteration of the game brings about new additions to the grand scheme of unifying 2nd century China. Regardless of their familiarity with the source material, any fan of the strategy genre will appreciate the vast nuances in Koei Tecmo's historical opus; a challenging and rewarding mix of historically accurate warfare and deep gameplay, players will find themselves blissfully taken aback by all the options available in this timeless tale come game. In a macro and micro sense, cites can be built and developed, alliances maintained or betrayed, and armies - that which features a wide variety spanning from infantry, cavalry, artillery, and even navy - can be done via conscription or recruitment. Diplomacy and intrigue also offer a multitude of choices, with historical characters retaining their quirks and personalities, and can be facilitated through bribery, coercion, flattery, and more. With already a huge wealth of content, even if a player sticks to the default Campaign mode, a mode where players follow the events of the novel, with Hero mode, replayability becomes just as inviting as all the aforementioned features. Hero mode allows players to create their own destiny within this pivotal time, and gives them the chance to play out an alternate path of history to their choosing. Of course, like all Romance of the Three Kingdom games that feature many of the characters from the novels, in XIII, there are over 700 historical characters including mainstay fan-favorites like Liu Bei, Cao Cao, Zhao Yun, and more; if you're like us though, you'd create your own unique character and build up your own version of the Middle Kingdom.

October 9, 2015
After the initial wave of great colony ships departed Earth, the jubilation of humanity was ephemeral. Those left behind fell into a violent struggle over the quickly-diminishing resources on their barren home world. From this tumultuous time, 4 new factions arose. These newcomers were founded not in the idealism of their predecessors, but on opportunism, resilience, ruthlessness, and, most importantly, a commitment to their own survival. Now, many decades after their first landfall on a new planet, the proud survivors of the first expeditions beyond Earth look up to see the skies darkened by a new breed of pioneers. [2K]
