At the risk of sounding a touch nostalgic... man, Harpoon ? How good a game was that?! There were numerous iterations of the popular game, all based on the tabletop war game of the same name, also developed in part with the help of Tom Clancy. It was a...

The words “strategy game” can bring up a lot of different things in a persons head. The fact is that it is a term almost as general as “RPG” anymore as to what it can represent, some might even call it a catch phrase that fits such a wide number of...

Moni tuoreen Battleship-elokuvan nähnyt saattoi miettiä, että siinähän olisi hieno pelin aihe. Norjalainen Turbo Tape Games vastaa kutsuun, mutta ilman Rihannaa. Ehkäpä innoittajana on toiminut myös eräs Harpoon…Naval War Arctic Circlen maalailemassa...

Ennen olivat sotalaivat rautaa, nyt ne ovat hiilikuidulla vahvistettua alumiinia. Seitsemän meren tyrskyissä karaistuneet merikarhutkin ovat vaihtuneet tutkaruutua tuijottaviin teknonörtteihin. Tästä uljaasta tulevaisuudesta on turha odottaa suuria...
