967th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo While I enjoyed playing Pikmin, it was a flawed classic: The controls weren’t great and the time limit was one that made me quite nervous. I was hoping that a sequel would improve on that and although I […]

963rd played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Kuju Entertainment Publisher: Nintendo For some reason I thought Battalion Wars was a prequel to Advance Wars: the big game version of it before it was adapted for the handheld. I was wrong – not only did this come later, it changed […]

954th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Pyro Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I’ve covered all the games for this blog that I’ve played in the past.

942nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Technosoft Publisher: Technosoft/Sega Strategy games that predate Dune II and others that created the RTS genre are always odd.

925th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: Sierra Studios While I’ve played plenty of grand tactics games set in space – Galactic Civilizations and Sins of a Solar Empire come to mind, as well as Stellaris which I really need to dive further into. I don’t […]

920th played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Infogrames Publisher: Infogrames I remember reading quite a bit of Belgian comic Blauwbloezen (Les Tuniques Bleues, more recently published as Bluecoats in English) when I was younger. I remember really enjoying them then, and while I’m sure there are a number of […]

908th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Various Year of Release: 1988 Developer: Realtime Games Publisher: Rainbird I’ve been in control of planes and cars for this lists, very immersive mechs and various different spaceships.
