Shadow Tactics’ standalone expansion Aiko’s Choice will lunge this December

Shadow Tactics was one of the most pleasant surprises of the past five years, establishing Mimimi as ones to watch before Desperados 3 established them as masters of tactical sneak ’em ups. Now the German developer is returning to their samurai roots with the standalone expansion Aiko’s Choice. Announced back in March, it now has a release window: December. Read more

Failing at Desperados 3 is the best way to play it

Whenever I have a chunk of holiday sitting in front of me, the possibilities seem endless. Maybe I’ll finally play Cyberpunk 2077 now it’s been properly patched, I think. But maybe I should also finally finish Nier: Automata in preparation for when Replicant comes out at the end of the month. There are also those dozen odd indie games I’ve got piled up, too.

Desperados 3 is now on Mac and Linux, and its first DLC is out

Here’s a fun computing fact for you: the Linux term root is derived from the cowboy term rootin’ tootin’, because the console cowboys who clip-clopped on their mechanical keyboards like a bucking bronco and listened to Fields Of The Nephilim would cry “Yeehaw!” and wave their leather Stetsons when they got system admin rights. How fitting, then, that wonderful Wild West squad tactics game Desperados 3 today launched a Linux version. A Mac version arrived too, so even those city slickers might be tempted by the cowboy lifestyle. The first paid DLC mission is out now too, plus a challenge…
