A Means to Disseminate Honest-to-God Leaks
By oblivion437
Posted on 02/02/15
Wikileaks, though technically not a wiki, provides an easy means to disseminate information that some find it desirable to share against the wishes of those who find it desirable to keep secret. Aside from the morality of the leaking itself, such a service provides a look into the activities of...

Racing RPG Sports Strategy Editor's Choice
There was no need to plan your RTS purchases carefully in 2006, because several of the choices were no brainers. That is, until you opened the boxes and installed the games, at which point things got very brainy, and by brainy we mean addictively fun.

 

STRATEGY GAME OF THE YEAR!

Medieval II: Total War

Publisher: Sega
Developer: The Creative Assembly
Platform: PC

 

In no other game is the thunderous clash of armies so...  clashy. Rewrite history from the dark ages to the discovery of the new world in Medieval II: Total War. With an overland campaign as deep as Civilization, and real time battlefields with literally thousands of soldiers, Medieval II easily takes the strategy game of the year award, probably by cutting off the head of the 2005 winner and mounting it on a pike as a warning to other games.

 

RUNNER-UP!

Company of Heroes

Publisher: THQ
Developer: Relic
Platform: PC

Relic flexed their unique talents on the tired World War II setting and brought it to life (followed quickly by mass death) with the gritty Company of Heroes.  From the fully destructible environments to the historically accurate campaign and lightning fast RTS gameplay, this war always had us coming back for more. Oorakasha!

 

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Dark Crusade

Publisher: THQ
Developer: Relic
Platform: PC

In possibly the best PC game deal of the year, Relic crammed this so-called ‘Expansion pack’ with complete standalone functionality, two new factions, and new campaigns for each of the seven total factions - for only thirty dollars.  If you’re still not convinced, get this: one of the two new races is made of evil-space-zombie-robots. Trust us, resistance is futile.
