NEWS! EAT IT! Or Something…

Hey y’all, happy Tuesday! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday! Busy with work and life stuff, took my whooooooole day. Seriously though, lots of things and stuff happened since last Friday, so let’s jump into the deep end (unless you’re already there, of course).

Now, to deals! Of which there are MANY! First, while GamersGate sales sometimes make sense, the one they have now is just all over the place, but you can get the following:

You can also get Galaxy on Fire II HD on Green Man Gaming for $4.99. The BEST deal, though, is you can get Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space for WHATEVER PRICE YOU WANT over on IndieGameStand, so get it. NOW! Second best deal is the Endless Space soundtrack, also pay what you want. There’s also some new bundle thing called Bundle in a Box, wherein you get to vote for a game to get an Indie Developer Grant, and BorderSpace is up, so chip in and help ‘em out if ya can.

Finally, in non-spacey gamey news, there’s a cool video called Kickstarter and NextGen Game Fundraising that’s quite cool, I suggest y’all check it out.

That’s it! Now read it and go! I need a nap! ;) *collapses*

    Hey, great meaty update, as always! :)
    By the way, I've seen a message on X series forum officially stating that X: Rebirth has been moved to 2013 release window and that some new info updates are being prepared for the fans.

    Regards Galaxy on Fire II: I don't think I can support this one, due to Fishlabs' previous behavior.

    I bought the first GoF for iPhone, and while I had a lot of trouble with with it (dear heavens, I hate motion-controlled games), I admired its ambition. And then came the last update, which changed the in-game economy and added a cash shop selling in-game boosts. At the same time, they made it free to download.

    So they took a game I'd already paid for, deliberately altered the balance so that cash purchases are now required to play, and tried to argue it was an upgrade because now new players (who are not me) don't have to pay to download it (as I did).

    Words can't express my anger. I was going to buy GoF2, but after this blatant bait-and-switch cash grab, I washed my hands of the company.
