Singh’s Top Ten Real-Time Strategy Games of All Time

50°
354w ago - If you haven't guessed already, this week's feature deals with the Best Real-Time Strategy Games of all time. Clearly it's something incredibly hard to decide, especially considering just how many awesome Strategy games that are out there right now, not counting eternal classics that have withstood the test of time to this day.

No, I'm not talking about ancient pieces of history like Dune II or Civilization. Indeed, for a long time the only seeming piece of strategy a computer was considered to exhibit was a simple (yet incredibly complex) game of Chess.

Chess was where it all began; simple white vs black, a set piece of units and a board to play on. Many early Strategy games were surprisingly, simply digital versions of Chess. Back then, whole computers were dedicated to making veritable opponents for human players and for a while it was truly the first 'Strategy' game for what was considered 'digital media' way back in the 1960s and '70s.

This, of course, has been ever changing up to the more recent (and more famous) Deep Blue and its prodigious cousins. Granted, the entire thing would be considered more of a console Strategy Game if you want to be a technical bitch - but they are Strategy Games nonetheless.

Of course we aren't here to discuss centuries...
 

Wii Have a Problem

354w ago - Tiger Woods, Maria Sharapova, Derek Jeter - they're athletic superstars, the envy of millions. The Nintendo Wii system gives you just a tiny taste of what it's like to be them. But as ABC2 News Investigator Joce Sterman found out, it also shows you there's a big difference between playing the game on the field and in your living room.

The grace, the skill. There's a reason the professionals are getting paid to play. It's simply not as easy as it looks. And as we've found, there's a big difference between reality and wii-ality. Anthony Williams knows that all too well. He's on the disabled list, off the roster after hurting his shoulder while pitching the biggest game of his life.

He says he was, "Throwing the ball 90 mph, trying to get it up to 100 miles per hour." The only problem is the curveballs that landed him in physical therapy weren't covered in cowhide. Instead, they came from a plastic coated remote.

You see, Anthony is only a major leaguer in his mind. He's really an MTA bus driver, out of work for more than a month thanks to countless hours with the Wii. He says, "As time went on it was waking me up at night, the soreness. That's when I went to see my doctor."

And that doctor was orthopaedic surgeon, Dr.David Buchalter. He diagnosed Anthony...

Nothing but Fighting in 2008...

50°
354w ago - For the past few years, we've only needed a single hand to count the number of new and interesting fighting games being released each year--especially if we didn't count the near annual re-release of certain vintage titles.

This year, however, looks to be drastically different; the planets seem to be aligned and are bringing with them a ton of incredible new games. From Japanese homebrew projects turned arcade superstars to the return of the icon, 2008 is loaded with more fisticuffs than a Las Vegas cage fight.

Street Fighter IV
Developer: Capcom
Platform: Arcade

In the early '90s, the joke went that Capcom lacked the ability to count to three when it came to their Street Fighter franchise. They managed to graduate kindergarten in 1997, and Three: A New Generation of Street Fighters was born. While its update, 3rd Strike (1999), is still the most played fighter on the competitive circuit to this day, that hasn't stopped gamers from desperately wanting a Street Fighter IV.

Capcom is set to deliver this year, with a 3D update to the series that is as rife with controversy as the company's decision to ditch series staples was back in 1997. The focus of Street Fighter IV rests solely on the casual player who longs for the nostalgia of their youth with simplified mechanics...
