Mods: they exist in Hearts of Iron IV. And some are quite good. Up to a point?

Tanks, planes, spies, ships, civilian factories, focuses… Take command of everything and become a master of logistics and strategy. But mostly logistics.
Get out your sword, prepare your spells, and try to dominate the land of this upcoming adventure and strategy game.
There’s episodes, and there’s episodes: both SVGA’s cohosts are hard at work to prepare the next installment of our retrogaming series, with Burnout: Paradise, but in the meantime, they decided to launch a new type of discussion, called DLCs.
So, I have to say, some of this is my own fault. I saw that Black Legend was set in the 17th century, after some kind of war, and that in order to get the king’s pardon you had to go free a town from something. That’s all I knew when I was offered a chance to review the game. Seemed fun!
One man. A world-spanning conspiracy. And something akin to bunny-hopping, but more like toad-hopping, and it’s probably quite bad for the knees and the legs. This is Splinter Cell.
You end up on a strange island. No one takes you by the hand. There’s no quest markers. Not many clues. Just one vague objective: understand. In 1993, Myst was a sensation. And 28 years later, this exploration and adventure game still holds up.
Hitman 3 is a welcomed conclusion to a well-known series of games. Despite being pretty straightforward, the gameplay mechanics are quite refined and provide a pretty fun experience from beginning to end.
Right off the bat, Project CARS 3 sets itself apart from its predecessors. The opening video starts with a Mercedes winding its way down a mountain road, drifting around corners, until a Honda — waiting around a blind curve —darts out to join the chase. The race is on, as they say.
Robots, robots, and more robots. Oh, and explosions, of course! Published in 1997, Cavedog Interactive’s Total Annihilation helped defined the real-time strategy genre with its original mechanics and its scale. Prepare to fight for survival in this 8th episode of SVGA, your retro PC gaming podcast.
