I hate to say this to those of you who don’t have a Playstation 3, but Burn, Zombie, Burn is right up there with Flower, Resistance 2 multiplayer, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and the Blu-Ray drive as one of the best reasons to have a Playstation 3.
But we review the games we’re given, not the games we wish they’ll become. And right now, Empire: Total War is blunderingly stupid, relying on a handful of the same tricks, lots of shuffling and scooching, and long bouts of inaction.
Three Moves Ahead is Troy Goodfellow’s strategy gaming podcast, in which he kindly allows me, Bruce Geryk, and Julian Murdoch to hold forth. You can listen to it here, but be forewarned there is no small amount of strategy game geekery going on here.
