Planet Coaster review – perfect sandbox, imperfect strategy

An interesting thing happened this fall: two seemingly identical games were released within just 48 hours. What’s even more surprising is how far apart these games were in terms of quality. While RollerCoaster Tycoon World proved to be an overall disappointment, Planet Coaster is something else entirely – the contrast is stark, to say the least. The latest game from Frontier Developments is the total opposite of Tycoon World – it’s smooth, it’s fun, and it looks great. Coaster tycoons are back!

When English is not enough – linguistic experiments in video games

English, mothertaffers, do you speak it? Turns out they do in fiction; most unknown alien species humanity meets on the fringe of the universe, most fantasy races you’ll ever meet, as well as most people living in China before Old English even became a thing – all of them will happily engage in a conversation held in Shakespeare’s tongue. Which can be, subjectively speaking, bad, because some settings are screaming for something more unique or realistic, depending on how you look at it. Some devs have reached the exact same conclusion, and decided to substitute English with something more interesting, be it in the name of art or laziness. Coming up with original languages can be time-consuming and tricky though; let’s see how video games have tackled the issue.

Tyranny Review – an RPG full of contrasts

Obsidian’s Tyranny, despite being a fresh release, is an old project, first conceived in 2006 under a different name. This may explain why the concept at its core is as much unique as it is intriguing – a world where the evil has won, and now it just needs to deal with some unfinished business and keep the evil empire from crumbling under its own weight. Given how it’s now full of rebel groups from subjugated lands and powerful but over-ambitious generals of the armies that subjugated them, the players – as one of the evil overlord’s faithful agents whose task is to uphold the empire’s authority – certainly have their work cut out for them. Now if only the game could focus on that and not on trash mobs...

Cyberpunk 2077 – what to expect from an RPG made by the studio that gave us The Witcher 3?

It seems that game developers like to shroud themselves with mystery these days. I remember that before Mass Effect 2 came out, the players knew more than half of characters and a concrete outline of the plot, not to mention various trivia fed to the community almost every week. Now, we are (probably) months away from the release of Mass Effect: Andromeda, and yet nobody has a clue what we’re in for. The case is identical – or even worse – with Cyberpunk 2077, the new game from the creators of The Witcher 3. Still, since the game is based on a table-top RPG, we can make some educated guesses once we’ve analyzed the manuals for Cyberpunk 2020 and 2030.

Sid Meier’s Civilization VI review – one turn short of perfection

Here it is, Civilization VI, marking the 25th anniversary of one of the most recognizable 4X franchises. You would expect that the developers will deliver something special on this occasion – and that’s exactly what they did. The new Civilization offers stunning visuals as it skillfully marries bold changes and a “going back to go forward” attitude where it needs to. Obviously, some things are still the same: the AI is dumb (a bit less though), Gandhi likes nukes, and the One More Turn Syndrome kicks in once again. The new installment provides a solid ground for further development, which will probably turn an already great game into the best 4X game on the market.
