So! Much! Color!

So! Much! Color!

Haaaaaaaaayyyy guuuuuuuuys, how are ya? Sorry for the delay in this week’s podcast episode, but Jim and I were both busier than usual this week with the real life nonsense. That said, we had no guest this past week, so we just caught up on what we’ve been playing, the news and all sorts of other stuff. It was a fun time, so we hope you enjoy it.

As always, please feel free to comment on the podcast below (I’m not creating specific forum threads anymore, no one uses ‘em ;) and follow us using RSS and/or iTunes. Thanks for listening!

Spacey Gamey News and Deals 1/23/13: A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That…

Folded Newspapers

Piling it On…

Haaaaaaaaaaayyyy y’all! Happy Tuesday! I hope y’all are having a lovely day! I’m having a great staycation so far my own self! Now, a couple of things before I jump into the news. First, to try and get as much done as possible this week, my plan is to play as many games as I can fit in, take notes, capture screenshots, that sort of thing, then write about ‘em as I have time. Therefore, this week might not be stuffed with content, but there will be a steady stream of content coming out over the next days and weeks as a result, FYI.

Secondly, reader Jake wrote in to request I try a new news format to make it easier to read. Basically start with the game’s name itself after the bullet in bold, followed by the news, so I’m gonna try that now. Please let me know what you think in the comments below. :) Thanks folks!

Finally, in spacey game deals, spacey groundy game Salvation Prophecy is on sale at GamersGate for $10, and Paradox has launched their own web store and are celebrating by having a 55% off sale, meaning you can get Sword of the Stars II for $9.

That’s it for today! Have an awesome day y’all, and thanks as always for visiting!

Spacey Gamey News and Dealsiness – 12/14-18/12

Newsy News

The News is Back!

Hey folks, happy Tuesday! SO SORRY I didn’t post yesterday, but I was sick as a dog. Apparently I have a bronchial infection, woohoo! It subsided for a week or so but came back full force this past weekend, so badly that I went to the doctor yesterday. Now I have drugs!! Woohoo! So let me bring you up to speed on all the spacey gamey newsiness in my drug-enduced sleepy haze, and enjoy!

SHEEESH! But wait folks, we’re not done! We also have DEALS, starting with a bunch from GamersGate today, which are as follows:

Next up, the Groupees folks have a Build a Greenlight Bundle that includes Salvation Prophecy.

Finally in deals, DotEmu has a bunch, including:

FINALLY, we have some great concept spaceship from MANCHU and Steve Shi from the Concept Ships blog.

WHEEEEW! Thanks for your patience folks, REALLY appreciate it. Once I get better and the holidays are over I should be able to resume something of a normal schedule and get more actual content out. :) Have a great day y’all!

This Way for All The Videos!

Go! Vote! :)

Edit 2: Hey guys, sorry about the edit, but in an effort to keep this as simple as possible (thanks Bryan for the idea), I’ve created collections for all the space games I find on Steam Greenlight. There’s an all-inclusive list which has every space game I can find, and a recommended list covering games I actually have experience with. Hope this helps make Greenlight a bit easier to deal with!

Edit 1: To keep this post from getting too long, I’ve moved new entries to this forum thread, so I encourage folks to head over to the forum and add any to the list not already there. Thanks!

Steam has finally launched Greenlight, their way to let new games onto Steam by having folks vote on them. I’ve gone through the list, and I’ve found a lot of spacey games, including:

These were all the ones I’ve been able to find, at least. If you see more, let me know and I’ll add them to the list. Now go and vote, dangit! ;)

More Spacey Action Now Available! :)

Wow, this was a surprise! I hadn’t heard any news about this game in a while, and suddenly the PlaySF blog says it’s released! If you’re unaware, Salvation Prophecy is a spacey game that also allows ground-based combat, exploration, military missions and much more. It looks pretty cool, so head over to GamersGate if you’re at all interested, and enjoy!
