726th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ When it comes to the universe, I’ve always been a fantasy player. There’s some interesting bits about the 40k universe, but nothing in it ever really tempted me. Sadly, until Total War: Warhammer, it hasn’t been greatly represented […]

712th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: SNES Year of Release: 1990 Developer: Quintet Publisher: Enix I played Actraiser a long time ago, probably by getting through some random SNES games when I had a chance to – I don’t really know what attracted me to it, but I connected with it. It’s a game […]

701st played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Zee-3 Digital Publishing It’s getting harder to pick out indie titles for the first of the fifty and I’m sure I’ve skipped one or two already. I managed to dig one out from the pile though, multiplayer focused strategy game Naked War. […]

700th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo Another landmark! 700 already. I mean, this is 7 years in the making, but we’re getting closer all the time. At this point, there are some game series I really need to start – multiple entries where I […]

697th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1984 Developer: First Star Software Publisher: Beyond Software/Tynesoft/Wicked Software/Kemco I remember playing Spy vs Spy with friends about… 20 years ago maybe?

684th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Iphone Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Critical Thought Games Time for another iOS game, knocking out the batch of games that won’t be playable once the old phone and ipad stop working. With geoDefense Swarm, we’re covering a tower defense game, one that looks fairly straight forward. Our […]

680th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Ensemble Studios Publisher: Microsoft Age of Empires was an interesting one, one where I got stopped in what I normally feel is an annoying but necessary part of these games – the tutorial. Age of Mythology went better, but then, that’s newer. […]

676th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Westwood Studios Publisher: Virgin Interactive Entertainment While I originally focused on playing Command & Conquer, the Red Alert series never held quite as much of an appeal to me. Partially it’s because World War II settings don’t really interest me a lot […]

667th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Massive Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Entertainment/Ubisoft See that number up there? Two thirds of the way through. Making progress y’all! It feels like a while since we last covered an RTS. We’ve had some games, like the amazing Star Control 3, that mixed […]

654th played so far Genre: Strategy/Shoot ‘Em Up Platform: PC Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Legend Entertainment Publisher: Accolade There are a bunch of hybrid games, that combine two genres that don’t normally fit together, but manage it with their own spin. Prior to starting Star Control 3, I’d already seen parts of its predecessor […]
