Reception at the initial release of Beyond Earth was a touch mixed and some even suggested that waiting for an expansion might be a wise move. Well now there is an expansion that brings aquatic gameplay, an overhauled diplomacy system, hybrid Affinities and more (apparently) so perhaps it’s time to look again if you didn’t on release.

Possibly the best wargame to be released in 2013, Matrix Games Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm is still extremely popular and the game has great replayability (see our extensive review here). Additionally, the game has been heavily updated following feedback from the player base and last November a “Player’s Edition” was released based on the feedback.

“Will there be a Mac version?” or “When will this be out on Mac?” are common questions when a new game is released, often followed by an evasive or holding reply from the publisher leaving the gamer none the wiser. The sad fact for people looking for wargames on the Mac is that the market segment is pretty small – let’s be honest, the PC is the norm for a games machine – and so the economics of porting a game to the Mac are usually a bit marginal.

Lately, we’ve been discussing just where PC wargaming might be going, but as much as I’m looking forward to carefully chronicling that inevitably interesting evolution, it’s good to know that some things never change.
