Sept 2013 News

Hi all, time for some news this month. I've been playing SRW MK3, completed it, and I'm still working through SRW OE. As usual lots of tactics games and not nearly enough time to play and/or write about them all!

New tactics games not mentioned before:

Natural Doctrine

Fantasy Kommander - Eukarion Wars

Disgaea 4 port for Vita

Halfway, squad based tactics

Templar Assault, another squad based game that looks quite a bit like Space Hulk

2nd Super Robot Wars Dark Prison

Unsung Story

Ultimate Space Commando

Atomic Brawl

Hero Mages

Ancient Battle: Rome

Other news, mostly taken from Rui Castro's facebook page:

Card Hunter is now live and free to play.

Incognita early alpha access. Still meaning to try this one out, it looks good.

XCOM:EU Enemy Within trailer. Enemy Within impressions at PCgamer.

Arma Tactics is coming to PC on Oct 1 2013.

Mecho Wars HD impressions.

Disgaea D2 impressions.

Telepath Tactics updates.

Watching this footage of indie game Transistor, it looks kind of tactics-based. Not really, but it looks fun.

Battle World Kronos in closed beta.

Chaos Reborn updates.

Frozen Endzone impressions.

Warhammer Quest expansion.

Frozen Synapse: Tactics footage.

And that's it for this month. Please leave a comment if there's something new Rui or I missed.

I couldn't find it through the "Search This Blog" feature so I assume you forgot to mention that the Front Mission Series Translation Project released the final patch for FM2 on the 27th of august: I just thought some of your readers may be interested into this info...

Thanks didn't know about that.

I did see this around,
Natural Doctrine , but could find gameplay videos to confirm if it was a tactical game.

Transister is interesting because of how the unit selection and movement is done. I imagine a grid based game which with simple finger movement, it would translate into the grid. Perhaps someday
