2014 Holiday Space Game Buying Guide: Complete Experience Edition

Still One of the Best Values in Gaming!

Still One of the Best Values in Gaming!

Hello folks, and welcome to my Space Game Holiday Buying Guide for the holiday season of 2014! With all of the digital distributors gearing up for their holiday sales, I figured I would go through various sub-genres of space gaming in order to help identify the best gaming values for your buck. The criteria for these games were a mix of quality, longevity and affordability along with accessibility. I also did NOT include early access games on this list, as I felt that’s become enough of its own thing to deserve its own list, which will follow this one in short order.

FOUR FREAKING HOURS LATER, I got nothing done, except a bunch of cargo runs, a few interdictions, some awesome voice chat and even some combat. I think I’ve put in maybe 5-6 hours TODAY in today, before, during and after the stream. SHEESH.

So while the good news is, here’s a four hour video from Twitch of me playing the game which is hopefully fun to watch, the downside is that content might be light this coming week. It’s a holiday here in the US anyway this week, so I’ll also blame that. ;) The video has to be watched on Twitch because it’s too big to export to YouTube, no lie. I’m putting the video behind a cut because it autoplays and I can’t figure out how to turn it off because it’s set to “false” in the embed code and yet it’s still playing anyway. Enjoy! ;)
