Men of War may be one of the most generic sounding game names ever devised, but this is a unique and challenging RTS series that blends incredibly detailed troop micromanagement with huge battles spanning entire towns. The latest entry into the series, Assault Squad, is holding an open beta now on Steam, so if you haven't had a chance to try Men of War's intense cocktail of massive tanks, fragile soldiers and extremely questionable voice acting then you're in luck. Read on for the full details.

Digital Mind Soft have provided gamers with a challenge: hit 20,000 members for the official Men of War: Assault Squad Steam group, and they will reactivate the open beta. Not only will they do that, but they'll let you play as the Soviets in it, too. Get signing up already!
"More war, war men!" shout the RTS fans, who have become increasingly hungry for fresh humans to tactically expend through glorious battle. Men of War developers DigitalMindSoft are in the ideal position to answer these cries, and have done so by announcing Men of War: Assault Squad 2 - a follow-up to their infantry-heavy standalone expansion.
DigitalMindSoft's Men of War: Assault Squad 2—a follow-up to its infantry-heavy standalone expansion—is now in open beta, but you'll have to spend a little money to get in. The game's regular price is set at $35/£25, though it's currently offered at a 20 percent discount for $28/£20.
If Assault Squad was an MG 42 it would need a barrel change about every three minutes. ‘Ferocious’ doesn’t begin to describe the bloody bullet ballets served-up by this semimarvellous semi-sequel. Instead of sending our favourite WWII tactics title in years back to the front with a conventional campaign in its kit bag, Digitalmindsoft have equipped it with something called ‘Skirmish’. There’s still a heap of singleplayer missions (16), but now all scenarios rely on the same push-push-PUSH! play mechanism. You start at one end of a long battlefield with a knot of infantry under your wing. By pushing forward and seizing the control flags that dot the terrain, reinforcement points are earned, and new force types unlocked. A gain might release a new armoured car or infantry flavour. It may also trigger a brutal counter-attack. These retaliatory thrusts, combined with the fact the AI is usually dug-in deeper than an agoraphobic tin miner, mean victories sometimes take hours to secure. Even on ‘easy’ you’ll need stamina and skill to prevail.
Here's another casualty in the internet's extended and ferocious war on prices. Bundle Stars, one of the many hundred financial death squads that roam the digital battlefield, have rounded up the Men of Wars and are holding them to ransom. Of course, because they're a bundle seller, that ransom is exceedingly reasonable, and gets you every game in the RTS series and their collective DLCs.
1C Company are the subject of this week's pay what you want Humble Sale. Not that you're being offered their full, expansive, and occasionally ropey back catalogue. Instead the bundle focuses on two of the publisher's more notable series. Included are a battalion of Men of War, and a king's ransom of King's Bounty. It's a great collection if you're looking for a large and meaty slice of turn-of-the-decade PC gaming.
What kind of day has it been? A day of late-comers, that's what. After a lengthy hiatus the Tales of Monkey Island special edition has finally come out, and the Fallout: New Vegas Dead Money DLC will finally be coming to PC. Better late than never. But only one game has dominated the headlines today. Battlefield 3 is on the way. Only time will tell if it can be as epic and exciting as its predecessors, but we can't wait to find out. Plenty more has been going on in the land of PC gaming. Hundreds of Sims have loved and lost, thousands of newbies have been fragged in Call of Duty: Black Ops. We've condensed everything you really need to know into a handy list, compiled below.

My desire to become 'alright' at Total War: Shogun 2 reached breaking point yesterday. I ended up watching video commentaries of more skilled players. The battles might not be presented with the polish we've come to expect from Starcraft commentaries but they're epic and educational regardless. This guy has even used YouTube captions to lead you through his online matches in your own custom order. Very clever. I just want my Avatar Conquest games to look like his; is that too much to ask?

Here's a tasty bit of machinima spotted on Gamefront, made in Skyrim by one chap and a lot of mods. It throws about a thousand warriors at each other and then blows them up with magi-bombs. It's a great showcase for Midas Magic, which is one of the top rated mods on the Steam workshop right now. For more Skyrim goodness, check out the demo reel of features that Bethesda didn't have time to put into the full game. WERE-BEARS! But what else has been happening in the world of PC gaming?

DigitalMindSoft, the co-developers of the Men of War series, have announced what they are calling its "true successor," Call to Arms. As is tradition for developers who have spent too long wandering the grim battlefields of World War 2, this time they're taking a trip to the present. "Like you, we fought countless battles across Europe," they write, hopefully referring to their previous game, "but time stops for no man and change is coming. The era of modern warfare has begun!"
