Spacey Gamey Dealsies 9/10-11/13: The Apology Edition

News Satellite Dish

Beepity Beep Beep Beepity Beep…

Hey folks, happy Wednesday! I hope y’all are having a great week so far! On my end, I am tiiiiiiiiiired, so tired I’ve not even felt motivated enough to…*gasp*…play games! I hope that changes soon, but until then, the best I can do is keep y’all informed with newsiness, so here goes! :)

Next up, we have two deals today. First, GOG’s daily sale is Ring Runner for $4.99, which is a steal for how much content this game has and how fun the gameplay is (yes, I’m still working on the review ;). The other deal is that the latest Humble Bundle has launched, and for currently a little less than $5, you can get FTL and several other, non-spacey games.

Finally, I thought this was funny. One of the websites I follow is TVShowsonDVD.com, and when they had an announcement on a new DVD set for a show called Space Rangers, I totally did a triple-take. Sadly, it has nothing to do with the much-beloved Russian game of the same name, but it looks interesting nonetheless.

That’s it for today folks! Have an awesome one!

    I grabbed Ring Runner because I loved Continuum, and I'm currently playing through the single player, it's hilarious so far :) Perhaps we spacegamejunkies could hook up one night and play a game of ring runner multiplayer?

        For strategy games, yes... But this is an action game...

    I remember "Space Rangers". Short lived (four or six episodes I think). The used a catapult, to launch a ship into space (or for FTL travel). As for the game the English translation is complete. (http://spacerangershd.com/)

      Still with terrible English as always, here's hoping someone kind enough to fix it someday (there was someone who kind enough to fix the English in SR2Reboot but only partial) :P

      Also mandatory BREAKING NEWS:

        Yeesh. I see capital ship tactics in Elite have regressed to a pre-Napoleonic state; "Move 100 meters away from the enemy, cut all velocity, and sit there trading broadsides until one of you blows up."

        That was severely uninspiring, and hopefully not indicative of the final gameplay. :(

          Probably one of them warped in right next to the other one? Since I can't hear the beginning's audio (deaf), I don't know what they said about the fight, so that's my assumption. Obviously they could go long range, but I guess for video's purposes, it is for eye-candy :)
