    Review: Age of Empires Online

    Rating: E10+ Genre: MMO/RTS Publisher: Microsoft Game Studio Developer: Gas Powered Games Release Date: August 16, 2011 BUY I have been an Age of Empires fan since the Age of Empires II days. It was my first RTS that I’ve ever played and it cemented my love of the genre. So you can imagine when I heard that there was going to be an Age of Empires Online game, I was intrigued. I figured it would have a lot more PvP aspects to it, and ones that would hopefully be easier to find others to play with than the random matchmaking that had frequent disconnects that I remember from previous titles. Well I’ve spent approximately the last week playing Age of Empires Online and well, I liked it. Now there are some things that I didn’t really like or were a bit clunky, but overall I enjoyed myself and will

    Stronghold 3 Community Competition

    SouthPeak Games and Firefly Studios Launching Into Action With Unique Stronghold 3 Community Competition Fans Asked to Choose Beastly Catapult Ammo in the Upcoming Castle Building Sim SouthPeak Games and Firefly Studios have today launched a totally unique community competition for upcoming castle building strategy sim Stronghold 3. Fans of the title on Facebook have the opportunity to have their input in development by choosing which dead animal will become the new rather grisly ammunition for trebuchets in the game… yes, you read that correctly. “Medieval sieges were often just long periods of people doing nothing,” explains Simon Bradbury, Stronghold3’s designer. “The besiegers would sometimes catapult all manner of things over the walls, in the hope of causing disease and panic or possibly just to relieve the boredom! Traditionally we’ve had a deceased cow as alternative trebuchet ammo but in Stronghold 3 we’re taking massive development leaps by offering several

    Stronghold 3 Headed to a PC Near You in 2011

    SouthPeak has announced their plans to publish Stronghold® 3, created by the UK developer FireFly Studios. It’s said the game will be released globally for Windows in the first quarter of next year. If you’re unfamiliar with the Franchise, Stronghold is a Castle Sim/RTS. The first game was released in 2001 by Take 2 Interactive. Personally, I lost many hours of my college life to the original Stronghold and am pretty excited to see the franchise continued in it’s 7th installation (if you count the yet-to-be-released Stronghold Kingdoms MMO). “Stronghold 3 is an extremely impressive addition to our continually growing portfolio. We believe that Stronghold 3 will be an important growth driver for SouthPeak and that the Stronghold brand will benefit from our proven distribution, sales and marketing expertise.

    Guest Article: The Top Ten Strategy Games For People That Hate Strategy Games

    It’s a good time for strategy game sequels. Starcraft 2, Napoleon: Total War, Command and Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight, Supreme Commander 2 and Civilization 5 are all on the radar, and they’re kind of a big deal.

I’m here to hopefully prove you wrong! Whether you’re the type of person who doesn’t think clicking strategically sounds like their idea of a thrilling time but wants to give them a chance, or whether, like me, you’re a big RTS fan that didn’t get an invite to the Starcraft 2 beta who doesn’t want to idly wallow in self-pity, there’s a must-play classic strategy game out there for
