Pew Pew Pew!
Starpoint Gemini 2 has been in early access on Steam for a while now. However, when it first launched…there just wasn’t much all to do, really. Since then, however, the developers at LGM have been busy as heck adding stuff, like missions, dynamic traffic and more. It finally reached a point where I felt it was ready to have a look see with y’all. :) Therefore, please join me as I take you through some of the varied gameplay found in Starpoint Gemini 2. Enjoy!
Send Us Your Thoughts!
Hey kids, don’t forget that tomorrow is the deadline to get your emails into us so we’ll read them on the podcast! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, comments, or topics you’d like us to discuss, and we’ll tackle ‘em on the show. Our show is a year old this week too, so if you have a favorite episode or moment from the past year, we’d love to hear about that, too! Thanks guys! :)
Preach it Palpatine…
So Jim was sending me funny coloring book images today as we were talking about the contest we’re running (also, where are your entries people?) when he sent me this…
It So is Not Your Lucky Day…
It seems to be a pattern now…fail once at the mission, then succeed at it brilliantly. I wonder if this speaks to my rustiness as a pilot or to the puzzleness of the gameplay. Regardless, this time I fail TWICE before succeeding quite brilliantly, but this one is a big nail biter…well, it was for me at least. Join me as I eventually complete the mission:
Tour of Duty VI: Arms race – Mission 4: Punitive Raid
Where they put me in a freaking Assault Gunboat. AGAIN. Can we just get to the mutherfrakking TIE Defenders already, please?
It’s From WC1 and 2, I Know, But It Seemed So Appropriate…
Thanks to the CIC for mentioning this! Apparently the composer of the music for Wing Commanders 3 and 4, George Oldziey, has launched a Kickstarter to produce a recording of a suite of music from those two Wing Commander games, with a funding goal of $35,000 to help produce the nearly ten minute piece of music with an eighty piece orchestra. Personally I’d love to see this kind of this come to fruition, as I’m a game music nut. Head to the Kickstarter and check it out for more info if you’re also interested. :)
This is Too Awesome Not To Use…
Heh, I wonder if this is gonna become a regular thing, as I did a similar post last week. Regardless, there are some spacey game deals I wanted to let’chall know about. These include:
- BundleStars has a sale on Space Rangers HD for $12.50 for the next three days, which gets you a Steam key. They also have a Reboot Bundle which includes Space Pirates and Zombies, among other games, for $2 currently, which will go up after the first 48 hours are over, they say.
- GOG is currently having a Strategy and Action Special weekend deal which includes Space Empires IV: Deluxe for $3.99 (which isn’t bad, but I’ve seen it for cheaper elsewhere) and O.R.B. for $2.39, which is a great price for what I thought was a seriously underrated game. O.R.B. also comes with a great soundtrack as well.
That’s all I could find for now folks. Enjoy, and happy savings! ;)
Hey guys, I’ve mentioned this game before, and today it’s finally released so y’all can check it out yourselves! :) The simplest way I can describe Retroboster is a modern version of the amazing arcade game Defender, which is a very good thing. I’ve been toying with the release version and have been having a great time with it, as it’s fun, hectic and damned challenging. Check it out on the official site linked to above, or on Desura. Enjoy!
Getting the Director’s Cut Treatment…
Over on Kickstarter, Born Ready Games announced Strike Suit Zero: The Director’s Cut. This new version will be heading to the PS4 and Xbox One, but us PC gamers won’t be left out in the cold. This new version apparently features a restructured campaign so we get the Strike Suit sooner, a graphical overhaul, all the released DLC and more. Apparently, they’ve “taken a year’s worth of comments and suggestions on board, too, directly addressing the points of our community and critics.” To me, that sounds promising, because if you recall from my review of the original game, it has some issues. Current owners of the game will be “looked after” as well, which I’m surmising means a discount for this new director’s cut or something similar. Stay tuned for more, and check out the trailer below. :)
Yesterday Steam released another batch of Greenlit games, and there are several space games that made this round, including:
Congratulations to the developers of these and all of the other games that will now be showing up on Steam! Yay! :)
That’s the Stuff…
Hey kids, as you may recall, the developers of Space Pirates and Zombies (and its recently announced sequel) were on our podcast recently, and we asked them if we could have some codes for the first game to use in a contest. Personally I always have a hard time coming up with ideas for contests like this, but in this case, Jim’s genius came through once again. ;)
