Civilization V: Gods & Kings Announced

The new expansion is coming Spring of 2012.

2k Games has announced a new massive expansion pack for Civilization V entitled Gods & Kings, which will be released on PC in late spring of 2012.

The expansion will boast 27 new units, 13 new buildings, 9 new wonders, 9 new civilizations, 3 new scenarios, 2 new types of city states and new tech. Religions will also return and naval combat is being re-worked. Diplomacy and Espionage are also being enhanced.

Religions will have players select pantheons of gods, create prophets, and attempt to convert all comers. Ships will be classified into two categories: long distance and melee. This will make keeping your navy balanced more crucial to victory and long distance attacks on cities and targets will be more viable but dangerous.

The enhanced diplomacy and espionage will consist of players creating embassies in other civ cities in order to strengthen relations or plan deceptive actions. Spies will return and can steal, sabotage, rig elections or incite coups.

Blaster Master Review Rewind

My earliest years in gaming was a magical time. Every new game I discovered pioneered a fresh mechanic I hadn’t seen before. I'll never forget the moment when my brother's best friend came over with his NES games to show off Blaster Master. I marveled as the story elements unfolded while melancholic music played in the attract mode. Pressing the start button then transitioned me to the opening shot of an armored vehicle speeding off while the triumphant music swelled to a crescendo as I journeyed into the unknown. Never had I witnessed anything like that at the time. While everything I just described is nothing spectacular these days, Blaster Master still has a few gameplay elements that still hold up quite nicely.
