Warhammer (not 40000): Age of Sigmar: Realms of Ruin
Wiper posted a topic in DiscussionWell, this is sort of interesting. A high-budget, mid-to-small-scale RTS with the Warhammer licence is on its way, and it certainly looks the business. I'll be interested to see what Frontier Developments make of this, given it's quite a way out of their wheelhouse; and it's been a good while since we've had a fantasy Warhammer strategy game that wasn't at massive scale. Just a bit of a shame that the campaign is evidently focussed on the most boring faction of all, fantasy space marines stormcast eternals. CG Trailer:
This new RTS seems to be doing everything right. Releasing sometime this year, they just showcased an 18-minute look at some PVP (see below), and there will be two 15-mission single player campaigns, whether you choose to play as the GDF or the Tempest Dynasty. It's been too long since we had a new title in the genre. With the classic gameplay but all the bells and whistles of a modern PC, this should be one to watch. https://store.steampowered.com/app/1486920/Tempest_Rising/
Pikmin 4 - July 2023. Finally.
Keyboard Koala posted a topic in DiscussionShigeru Miyamoto appeared briefly during the Nintendo Direct of September 2022 to announce that the fourth game in one of Nintendo's most beloved franchises is finally coming to the Switch. Unfortunately, not much was shown. Fans were shown a tranquil park and a napping bulborb, but even the pikmin themselves were not shown. Technically Pikmin 4 was already announced years ago in September 2015. Back then, Miyamoto said that the game was “close to completion”. It goes without saying, but something clearly happened along the way as it’ll now be eight years later that Pikmin 4 finally launches. Meet the pikmin; small, plantlike creatures you can grow, pluck, command, and overpower your enemies with! These curious helpers come in different types - fire is no sweat for red pikmin and the brand-new ice pikmin can freeze enemies and the environment. Use your pikmin’s miniature might (and a bit of strategy) to explore this mysterious planet. And this time you get a dog, too! Oatchi (pronounced oat-chee), resident good boy and dependable partner, can help with things like smashing obstacles and carrying pikmin throughout your adventure. With the miniscule pikmin and a capable canine in tow, no challenge is too big! Debut trailer:
GBA Napoléon - L'Aigle de Guerre
Keyboard Koala posted a topic in Retro & Arcade GamingJust got this. Strange little game this one. An early GBA RTS developed by Genki (and not Intelligent Systems, as some sites claim) under supervision of Nintendo. Released in November 2002 in France, Switzerland and Belgium only - since the game is exclusively in French. In the game's Story Mode, players slip into the role of none other than France's Napoléon Bonaparte who leads the revolutionary army into battle against the evil English (!). Set in the late 18th century, Napoléon's story is told in a Fire Emblem fashion via strategic maps and character dialogue. But don't be misled by the game's title and authentic looking characters. This isn't a historically accurate simulation of the exploits of the famous French general -- unless, unbeknownst to historians, Napoléon actually fought giant man-eating ogres and abominable snowmen. The objectives for the missions vary slightly, but the basic idea is to send out your units, defeat the enemy and take over the opponent's stronghold. There's a strange mix of historical and fantasy characters, but gameplay wise it's not too bad. Still, I suppose not many 'mukers got to play this one, as this was squarely targeted at a French-speaking audience.
