Rilasciato Men of War: Assault Squad 2

Per quanto il titolo sia godibile che senso ha spremere un'idea che non ha margini di miglioramento se non minimi e che non giustificano un titolo tutto nuovo?

Histwar Napoleon in prevendita

Histwar Napoleon è in pre-vendita dal 21 Novembre e in uscita il 3 dicembre.

http://www.histwargames.com/boutique/en/

Ci sono varie versioni di acquisto, comunque il prezzo varia dai 50 euro ai 290 (purtroppo per il momento sembra possibile pagare solo tramite bonifico bancario).

La domanda è "ne vale la pena"? Ho già avuto modo di parlare del gioco varie volte sul Blog e la mia personalissima conclusione è "non si sa". Ad oggi, a parte la grafica, che è migliorata tantissimo, non ho la più pallida idea se il gameplay funzionerà in modo decente\sarà migliorato oppure lo stato dell'arte è ancora Histwar1 al suo attuale livello, vale a dire ancora pieno di bachi: non c'è ancora il livello brigata\divisione e far passare un ponte sembra ancora un'impresa titanica. Non esiste una gestione sensata dei corrieri e l'ultima introdotta crea solo una massa di messaggi di feedback ingestibile.

Quindi non posso che dire a chi si fa attirare dalla grafica: aspettate e leggete i posts degli utenti che lo usano e guardate cosa dicono. Il gioco è costoso non vale i soldi per il livello attuale di Histwar 1.

Rome 2 un gioco uscito incompleto?

Il gioco è uscito da un giorno e i commenti degli utenti sono devastanti. Chiariamoci nessun gioco esce perfetto e c'è sempre un'aliquota di scontenti per problemi relativi alle configurazioni delle loro macchine. Ma su metacritic il 50% esatto dei giocatori ha dato voti da 0 a 5, per un gioco da 60 euro (non di nicchia) è incredibile. Problemi grafici, di AI, di pesantezza sembrano comuni. Chiaramente è probabile che con il tempo i problemi saranno risolti, ma per allora il gioco uscirà scontato a 25 euro, e quindi chi ha pagato prezzo pieno, se ha avuto la sfortuna di incappare in questi problemi, sarà rimasto fregato.

Total War Rome 2 piano delle prime DLC

Annunciato il piano delle prime DLC post-release:

http://www.rtsguru.com/game/494/article/6485/Total-War-Rome-II-Post-Release-Plans-First-Paid-DLC-Announced.html

With the September 3rd release of Total War: Rome II getting ever-closer, the team at The Creative Assembly has been presumably putting the finishing touches on the game. Now, we are getting a peek at the post-launch plans, including the announcement of more free DLC coming along with the first paid DLC.

So what can we expect? Today, the Seleucid Empire was announced as a free DLC pack to be released sometime in October. That's in addition to release DLC, and the preorder DLC that have already been announced. Historically, the Seleucid Empire was established following the death of Alexander the Great, dividing that conqueror's empire in two.

The game's first paid DLC was also announced, with Culture packs on the way. The first, The Nomadic Tribes Culture pack will feature the Royal Scythians, Roxolani, and Massagetae and will go on sale in October as well.

Normandy 2.01 patch
Normandy 1.12 patch
Italy 1.02 patch
Something Nice
CMBN Market Garden
CMEF 1 (1944-1945, starting with Bagration)

Various Packs sprinkled in here and there along the way. But it's too difficult to say what and when specifically.

We have no plans on doing a North Africa game at the moment, but I wouldn't rule it happening.

Commander - The Great War rilasciato

Neanche faccio in tempo a scrivere un post con i nuovi screenshots che il gioco esce; comunque trovate l'annuncio sul sito Matrix:

http://www.matrixgames.com/news/979/Commander.-.The.Great.War.Now.Available!

Comunque io rimango legato a giochi dalle stile più classico, mi sembra un wargame sullo stile Panzer Corps, bello ma più per novizi che per appassionati di Monster games
