Spacey News – 11/26/12

It's the News!

Newsiness = Happiness. I Think?

Hey y’all, happy Monday, and welcome back to the work week (for those of us with a traditional work week at least). There was a decent bit of news since yesterday’s update, so let’s jump in, shall we?

In non-space gamey news, the folks at Gamasutra have a look at the beloved TRS-80, which I played my first-ever spacey games on. Finally, in non-gamey news, there’s a new piece of spacey art by MANCHU over on the Concept Ships blog, and a reader with the great name of Brian turned me onto this website called ShapeWright wherein you can build a ship in a web-based WebGL environment. I can’t try it here at work, sadly, but he recommends it. ;)

That’s it for today folks. Thanks for reading, and have a wondrous day!

Bringing You All the News That’s Fit to Print!

Hello there y’all, and happy Monday! What a day it’s been already, thanks to the Star Citizen news, but besides that, other stuff happened over the weekend as well, so let’s get it out of the way! :)

Now, onto the deals. As its Thanksgiving week here in the U.S., the deals are gonna come hot and heavy, especially from Steam, who will have so many I’ll likely not be able to share ‘em all (I suggest the amazing DDDeals and Cheap Ass Gamer to help keep up). GamersGate, however, has hit the ground running with their Thanksgiving sale, and it includes the following spacey goodness.

Aaaand I need a nap now. ;) Have a great day y’all!

Freeworlds: Tides of War Demo Released!!

Kuat Rise from Freeworlds

Damn, This Looks Impressive...Most Impressive...

I’ve not spoken much about specific mods here on my blog, but this is one mod I can’t help but mention. Freeworlds: Tides of War is an extensive mod/total conversion for Freelancer, and has been in the works for quite some time. Fans of Freelancer  and its mod scene — such as myself — have been waiting for its release with baited breath. Well, word came late last night that a demo version had been released, which I first noticed on ModDB. I know I’m gonna be trying this out dang soon, but I wanted to let y’all know too. Enjoy!!
