Folded Newspapers

Yay News!

Hello my friends, and welcome to another day of newsiness!! There’s plenty of goodness to get to today, including a bundle and some other stuff, so let’s get to it! Remember, all videos will be embedded below the cut. :)

We’re not done yet folks! First, in the bundle department, Bundle Stars’ Adrenaline Bundle is pretty damned great, as it has the fantastic Ring Runner, and in non-spacey game goodness, also both Etherlords games (which are awesome) and plenty more. Get this one if you can, folks.

Then, in the kinda related department, we have more faction information for Endless Legend, the fantasy strategy game from the Endless Space folks. We also have three new models from SOL Command for use in your space game, including a Personal Mining Unit, a base of operation for the PMUs and a sleek Dobrev frigate.

Finally, in not-related-but-still-interesting news comes word that Kickstarter passed the $1 billion mark in pledges, over $215 million coming from gaming alone, which is pretty awesome. Thanks VGN247 for the heads up!

That’s it for today folks, have a great one!

SGJ Podcast #48: Drowning in Immersion

OOHHH! IMMERSION!

OOHHH! IMMERSION!

Hey folks, welcome to the latest episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast. I apologize for getting this up so late, as Jim sent it to me days ago, but I had the busiest weekend ever, so I didn’t really have time to put it up until now. I also don’t have time to do the detailed show notes this week either (I might have to pair those down in general since they take an awful long time sometimes). :( On a happier note, Jim and I talk about a lot of awesome stuff, like news, games we’re playing and immersion in video games, based on our own experiences plus those you — our awesome readers — shared with us. It made for a great discussion, and we hope you enjoy it. :)

As always, you can leave comments below, or contact us at hail@spacegamejunkie.com if you’d like to contact us directly. Also, while I’m thinking of it, we’re thinking of doing some kind of write-in show, so hey, write us with questions you have and we’ll answer ‘em on a future show. ;) Thanks for listening, as always folks! :)

It's the News!

It’s the News You Know and Love…

Hellloooo my friends, and happy Monday! It’s time for another news digest, as I’ve gotten to that point where I have enough news to make one, and am gonna make the dang time needed to write one. :) There’s plenty to go over, so let’s dive in, shall we? (Remember, all vids are embedded after the cut)

In somewhat relevant news, the Escapist has an odd list of the eight best giant video game spaceships. Then, reader Stephen Cameron sent in a video of his own procedural starship creator, similar to the one I posted the other day, which looks damned cool and runs in C I believe.

Finally, in deals, GamersGate is having a Stardock midweek sale with all the usual suspects present.

That’s it for today folks, have a great one!

Spacey Game Newsies and Dealsies 10/7/13: The Finding Balance Edition…

Just a Wee Bit O' News Today.

Just a Wee Bit O’ News Today.

Hey guys, how are y’all? Me, I think I’m coming down with something, blech. Speaking of blech, there is sadly no way I have the time or energy to get all caught up on the nearly 200 pieces of news that happened over the last couple of weeks, and for that I apologize. While I love doing these news posts, I might find a better way to present ongoing space game news and just do posts for bigger items like game releases, new game announcements and the like. Maybe like a news ticker or something I can just put links into, I dunno…I have to figure out how to balance it all out so I have time and energy for non-news content, you know? I ask y’all then to please bear with me as I figure this out, because I’m starting to think my lunch breaks could be better spent writing original content than doing news. If I’m wrong, or if y’all have suggestions, let me know. To that end, until I figure out a better way, I’ll continue with the news posts and do them when I can, which includes today. However, this will only cover news from the past few days. With that said, let’s get to it.

  • PULSAR: Lost Colony – Congrats to the dev team as they just passed their funding goal on Kickstarter! Yay! If you missed it, don’t forget to check out our podcast with two of the devs. :)
  • Defect SDK – A lot of folks pointed this one out to me over the weekend, so I thought I’d share it with y’all. The SDK means “Spaceship Destruction Kit”, which, when you get down to it, isn’t destroying other spaceships one of the best part of space games?
  • The Mandate – No, this isn’t a new romantic comedy, it’s an ambitious space sim/tactical combat thingy that looks pretty cool. Its Kickstarter goal seems pretty lofty, so I hope it makes it. Oh, there’s also a new Developer Log on YouTube.
  • Elite: Dangerous – The latest newsletter is out with a new dev diary, weapon info and more. There’s also a video of David Braben providing commentary on the recently-released combat video, which I’ll also embed below.
  • Salvation: Prophecy – This game is now on Steam, and is on sale for 25% off at $14.99. I really need to get around to reviewing my GamersGate copy…
  • Void of Darkness – According to the game’s IndieDB page, the game’s Linux branch is now available.
  • Retrobooster – The game now has a new ship model and a new UI, and you can see both in the video after the cut.
  • K240 – A sequel to Utopia from 1994, which was apparently only for the Amiga, now has a PC version thanks to the folks from The Company.
  • Wing Commander – The CIC has some new renderings of a Wake Escort Carrier and its hangar which looks pretty cool.
  • Eterium – A new dev blog says goodbye to Vega.
  • And Here the Wheel – Apparently something fantastic is coming, as well as some progress updates. ;)

Next up, we have some deals. First off, the developer of 90Edges Universe is selling a commercial version of their Universe Development Kit for however many copies have been sold, so if you’ve bought the first copy, it’ll be $1, if it’s the 5th copy, $5 and so on. Secondly, GamersGate is having a deal on the Endless Space games, wherein you can get the Emperor Edition for $10.20, the expansion Disharmony for $7.99 or both for $17.50

Finally, in related news, I just got word that Bionic Dues is going to be out soon. It’s the latest game from the folks at Arcen Games, so of course I had to pimp it a bit. :)

That’s it for today folks! Thanks for reading, and have a good one!
