There are, at last count, 1,537,284 Warhammer games on the market, and yet somehow none of them have been in the 4X genre. So hi there, Warhammer 40,000: Gladius - Relics of War.

It's nice to know that no matter the genre, there's a Warhammer 40,000 to match your tastes. Dating sims and 4X were the exceptions until now.

You might remember that back in 2015 I reviewed a game called Order of Battle: Pacific, and liked it a lot. In the months and years since, developers The Aristocrats have been working on a bunch of new campaigns that take the game well past its original scope, incorporating battles ranging from the Chinese countryside to the North Atlantic.

Panzer Corps is one of the best -- and most underrated -- strategy games available on the PC. Thing is, it's a bit old-fashioned. Order of Battle: Pacific is what you get when a studio takes the same basic premise and makes it a little bit more 2015.
