We're moving into day five of the 12 Games of Christmas now, and it's the turn of a pair of strategy giants for an epic showdown. Paradox and Colossal Order came along and banished SimCity to the depths of gaming hell where it belongs with the arrival of Cities: Skylines. It's truly one of, if not the most impressive city-builders of all time. It's got a great community, insane mod support, and practically limitless potential to create the city of your dreams.
Despite talk of the popularity of real-time strategy games waning, Blizzard has announced StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void has shifted more than a million units since its launch on November 10th. Not bad for an expansion pack for a five-year-old game.
Blizzard has revealed that its long-awaited StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void chapter will be a standalone expansion, bringing the sci-fi strategy series single-player campaign to a close. The Legacy of the Void add-on brings with it a Protoss-oriented storyline, several new playable units and a pair of brand new cooperative gameplay modes in the shape of Allied Commanders and Archon Mode.
