Seeing green and red? It must be Christmas!
Every year the world patiently (or not-so-patiently) counts down those 24 days to Christmas; there’s even calendars filled with little treats to help keep the young ones patient.
Christmas is the best time of year, and so to do our bit in celebrating we’re doing our own advent calendar. Each day we’ll unveil another game that has touched us in some way over the year – whether because it’s a work of interactive art, laugh-out-loud funny or just so weird it blew our mind.
So be sure to check back each day for a new game suggestion to fill your Christmas break!
Throughout all this year, of all the strategy games I’ve played, there’s one I’ve kept coming back to, again and again. That game is King Arthur; a fantastic mix of strategy and RPG gameplay.
From tweaking your squads to realise their potential off battlefield, to engaging in some epic combat across England, there’s plenty in here to test your nonce as a general. Throwing in some real RPG decisions that you’ll need to make along the way and you’ve got a game that manages to be fresh in a relatively tired genre.
Pick this one up as your Christmas treat and you’ll have a game that will last you until Christmas 2012.
