Spacey Game News 3/25/14 – There-Went-March Edition

Buried Under News!

Buried Under News!

Hello my friends! I’m sorry I’ve been so absent of late, but wow am I tired! A short time ago, I went to Yosemite for the better part of a week (some pics here) for a wedding in which my girlfriend was the maid of honor. As awesome a time as I had, it was EXHAAAAUSTING and I feel like I’m still recovering from the sleep deficit, so I’ve just only had energy for some basic gaming needs, you know? ;) There’s been a ton of news out since then, however, so I’m gonna try to get to all of it. Here goes!

Wow, that was almost all of March up until now, huh? Yeeesh! We’re not done yet though, as I have some deals as well as some related news. First off, in deals, Steam’s recent rash of weeklong deals includes Space Trader: Merchant Marine for $1.49 (though the page itself says $4.99 for some reason). Finally, in kinda related news, GOG announced that they’ll be supporting Linux starting later this year, which could see some of our favorite spacey classics reaching that platform.

WHEW that was a lot of stuff to get through. This post took forever to write, but y’all are worth it. :) Have a great day folks!

Aeon Command: Striking a Balance Between Tension and Control

1 - Straightforward Tutorial

Humble Beginnings

One of the joys this blog brings — besides you guys, of course ;) — is that without it, there are a lot of wonderful little indie titles I might’ve missed. Case in point, Aeon Command here.  If I hadn’t been scouring Desura one day — which isn’t something I did before launching this blog — for new games, I might never have come across it, honestly. I’m really glad I did though, and if you keep on reading, hopefully you’ll see why and try it for yourself. ;)

C’mon In, the Combat’s Fine…
