Go Dance uses iOS FaceTime for body tracking

Sega has decided to shuck and jive right into the dance game market. But no, this isn't a new Kinect game. It isn't even a game designed for a TV-connected console. Instead, "Go Dance" is a new iOS game that relies on your iDevice's built-in camera to track your movement.

Yakuza: Restoration coming to PS4 and PS3

Sega is working on yet another Yakuza game. And once again, it'll be a PlayStation exclusive. Yakuza Ishin (Restoration) will be coming to both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in time for the Japanese launch of the PS4: February 22, 2014. While no US release has been announced yet, series director Toshihiro Nagoshi did note a desire to expand the franchise's audience with this early 1900s spin-off.

PS4-Vita cross-play was also pointed out as a feature for the upcoming title, although it's unclear if there will be any more to it than the system-standard Remote Play. Check out the trailer below:

Football Manager 2014 coming to PC, Mac, and Linux

Instead of merely shouting at the TV regarding bad soccer plays, you'll once again be able to prove your point this year with Football Manager 2014. Sega officially announced the simulation, and claimed this year's installment would include more than 1,000 changes over last year's.

Some of the most significant additions are occurring outside the simulation, like cloud saving and Steam Workshop tools to create and share custom content. Within the sim, you can look forward to more realistic transfers and contracts, more complex interactions between staff and players, an improved 3D match engine, and a full overhaul of the simulated tactics. Developer Sports Interactive is promising 1,000 changes in all.

Total War: Rome 2 preview: high above the battlefield



Total War: Rome 2 preview: high above the battlefield



As my tiny force of Roman soldiers marched on the Samnite forces laying siege to the city of Capua, I zoomed in to look at my individual soldiers, wondering what I would see. Fear? Excitement? Fatigue?

I wanted to see if Total War: Rome 2 could make good on its promise that the fortunes of battle would be etched on the faces of combatants on both sides. I had been told that there would be speeches, and that soldiers would mourn their fallen comrades. I didn't see any of that though; my little band of warriors looked stoic as ever as they hurried to meet the Samnites. I'm not sure it would have mattered either, because Total War: Rome 2 has much more going for it than it's supposedly Saving Private Ryan-like depiction of soldiers on the battlefield.
