Cities: Skylines: The Kotaku Review

Cities: Skylines is a game coming in hot. The People want a good city-building game to play, and it’s been a long time since they got one. So there’s a surprising amount of excitement and expectation for Colossal’s attempt at fixing SimCity’s mistakes.

Conquest, Murder, Pillage... Yup, That's Christmas

Video games don’t usually get into the Christmas spirit. Which is a shame! So it was nice to see that, upon reinstalling Crusader Kings II yesterday, I ran into this: a new holiday soundtrack to one of the most bloodthirsty games ever made.

Excellent PC Strategy Game Also Wants To Be An RPG

And here I was, only just saying how good Crusader Kings II – nominally a strategy game – was at depicting inter-personal relationships.

It’s OK, Crusader Kings II isn’t for everyone. I get that. But I’d like to think we can all at least find common ground and enjoy the game’s patch notes, which continue to be the very best.

PC Classic Gets A Gentle Glove Slap To The Face

One of the best PC games ever made is Sid Meier’s Colonization. A big part of that is the way it simulates the great unknown: as you venture westwards, unless you’re playing on the boring “real” map, you’re truly venturing into the great unknown.

PC Game Lets You Play As The Mighty Conquering Jews

For something that’s such a big part of many people’s daily lives, religion doesn’t play a terribly big role in video games. It does in Crusader Kings II, however, and that role is about to get a lot more interesting.
