Total War: Warhammer Review

Total War: Warhammer is full of elephants. If you've played Rome: Total War, you have to remember the first time you encountered the Carthaginians. Here you'd been, building proper Roman armies, with swords and shields and bows and arrows, designed to defeat nations with fewer resources and aging technology. Show More Summary

Sega Classics on Steam now support modern console controllers

Sega Classics on Steam now support modern console controllers. A new patch was released for Sega's emulator this week and it lets you use the PlayStation 4 (using custom DS4 Windows drivers available online), Xbox One and Steam Controller.
