Congrats to Alex for having his fantastic game, Zigfrak, finally available on Steam. Y’all can get the game for a mere $2.49, and I suggest y’all do so because it’s really fantastic. Don’t believe me? Check out my review for more deets. :) Enjoy!
iO9 has an exclusive look at Firefly Online, a game that’s been promised for ages but still not yet delivered. This time the folks from QMX are bringing us the goods, which is awesome because if anyone loves Firefly (more than me, at least ;), it’s the QMX folks. The game will have a free flight mode, multiple ships, side jobs, and overarching story and more. As Firefly is one of my favorite shows, and Serenity is my favorite spaceship ever, I’m excited yet cautiously so. This isn’t the first time a Firefly game has been announced, but hopefully this will be the first time one actually gets released. ;) Stay tuned for more. :)
Well, THIS came out of nowhere. I’d heard of Spaceforce Constellations a while back, but then there was no news about it for ages. Then, POOF, it appeared on Steam today for $7.99. I, of course, snagged it — I mean, that was cheap! — so I’ll let’cha know how it is in a bit.
Hey folks, apparently the alpha for Elite: Dangerous has launched today for backers who backed up to that level and beyond. This version of the alpha focuses primarily on single player combat, and from the video they’ve released, it honestly looks fantastic. I’m really glad I eventually came around and backed the game. :) I’m not in the alpha, however, so if anyone here is, please let us know your thoughts in the comments below. Enjoy!
So apparently there’s yet another spacey MMO on the horizon, this time called Entropy. I only found out about it through Rock, Paper Shotgun my own self, but you can now try the game on Steam Early Access if you’d like. I’ll see if I can take a gander my own self. If you get a chance to try it, please let us know your thoughts. Thanks!
Hey kids, a new video from Rogue System has been released wherein you can go inside and manipulate a GSI-S31c “FireArc” strike fighter, which is exciting for me because strike craft are typically my favorite. :) Check it out. :)
This trailer….I don’t even know what to….yipes…
You can learn more over at Rock, Paper Shotgun’s post. I hope to find out more my own self so I can share it with y’all, maybe try to bring these folks on the podcast or some such. Stay tuned…
What a great way to start the weekend, with new games! Today we have two to talk about, including:
- Void of Darkness: This game is entering beta, and will have its price raised to $9.99 on Desura. While the alpha was simply a combat demo, the beta looks to add a lot more stuff, so I can’t wait to dive in. You can see my video of the alpha or listen to our podcast with the dev for more info. :)
- Star Lords: I admit to knowing little about this one! It’s a turn-based 4X that’s entering Steam early access today though at $19.99. I really like the look of it, and it says it has a living universe, which I’m always excited to see.
I’ll be giving these a whirl soon, so stay tuned for impressions. Enjoy!
So appppppparently the space fighter combat add on thingy to Star Wars: The Old Republic launched an early-access version for subscribers, according to their website. Now I’ma gonna be honest here, I took a look at this thing when they first announced it and it looked like something of an afterthought to what appeared to be a seriously dying MMO, so I was all set to ignore it. However, a site reader wrote in and told me how not covering the game is a “big oversight on my part”, so here ya go. ;) Now, if any of y’all have tried it, let us know what’cha think, because I’m interested to know if this is just some lame copy of Star Conflict or if it’s a decent thingy in its own right. I look forward to hearing what y’all think.
I had some extra time on my lunch break today, which is unusual for me, so I figured I’d spend some time looking through Kickstarter for some more spacey games, and boy did I find a bunch! I offer these without commentary in basically the order I found ‘em. Check ‘em out, and enjoy!
- ASTROBASE COMMAND
- Novus AEterno
- Tiny Trek
- Approaching Infinity
- Space Station Alpha
- OuterWorlds Online
- Star Quest 2: United Galaxies
That’s it for now. If you know of one I missed, don’t hesitate to let me know. Thanks for reading!
