By Joseph Luster

Dogfight 1942

By Joseph Luster

World War II aerial combat games are surprisingly not that few and far between, at least relative to what one would expect from such a niche genre. Read more

E3 2012 Highlights

By Joseph Luster

Another year, another Electronics Entertainment Expo, aka E3. This year’s event was perhaps the most safely played yet, and while quite a few “future war”-style games were shown, there wasn’t a ton of World War II presence. Read more

Killing Adolf Hitler is the ultimate endgame.

By Joseph Luster

With decades of entertainment based on World War II behind us, and decades more down the road, there’s bound to be some (okay, quite a bit) that strays farther than “loosely” based on history and right into the realm of fantasy. Read more

Tropico 4: For the Would-Be Dictator

By Joseph Luster

The 2011 holiday season has been brutal, and as of this writing it’s really only just begun. Sure, it’s easy to sit in the future and reflect calmly on what was yet another ridiculously packed time of year as far as entertainment goes, but those of us living in the present (past?) Read more

August 2011 Military Games

By Joseph Luster

Could SOCOM 4 have been released at a worse time? Probably not.

By Joseph Luster

There are strategy games, and there are strategy games. You know what I mean when I get all italicized like that; I’m talking about the difference between simply sending units out across a grid-based map to do battle, and actually getting the player involved in the diplomacy of war. Read more
