Spacey Game News and Dealsies 9/6-9/13: Case-Of-The-Mondays Edition

Stack of Newspapers

The News Sure Piles Up…

Hellloooo my friends, and happy Monday! I hope y’all had a lovely weekend and are looking forward to a fun week ahead! Me, I am sooooo tired, and haven’t had time to get in much gaming besides some Skyrim (I have such an on-again, off-again relationship with the game…I’ll play it obsessively for weeks, to the detriment of any other game) and some time with the Starpoint Gemini 2 alpha. Not much there yet, but it’s fun to fly around and shoot stuff at the moment. Anyway, news! Let’s get to it! (All vids will be embedded after the cut, FYI.)

Now, in deals, there are a decent few for y’all! First off, Gamefly is having a Kalypso sale which includes Legends of Pegasus for $15.99. Then, Greeman Gaming is having a Value Pack Week which includes plenty of sales, most notably Sins of a Solar Empire: Trinity for $6.79, which oddly isn’t included in the Stardock complete pack for $56.97 (but Rebellion is), and finally, they have a Strike Suit Zero pack for $13.49.

Finally, in related news, since Gearbox is lending its support to the (now entitled) Homeworld: Shipbreakers, the game will no longer be free-to-play but a full commercial product! Hooray!

That’s it for today folks! Have a great one!

Spacey Game News and Deals 7/1/13: Manic Monday Edition, ‘Eh!

Stack of Newspapers

A Lot of News for a Monday!

Heellllooooo folks, and happy Monday! Happy Canada Day also to our friends up north as well. :) I hope y’all had an awesome weekend filled with awesome gaming. Mine was busy as heck, but I did get a littl Ring Runner in, thankfully. Hopefully I’ll have some time for more gaming this week. What about you guys, what are y’all playing? :) Oh, right, we’re here for news. Here ya go!

Whoa, that’s a lot of news for a weekend, but we’re not done yet! Next, in deals, we have Amazon’s Summer Sale, which has way too many deals to mention, and the X3 series is 50% off on Steam to celebrate the Linux release of the game(s). You can also get the whole X3 Goldbox for $12.49, which is a pretty dang good deal.

Finally, in kinda-related news, the devs of the Colonisation: Moonbase (it’s British, hence the weird spelling ;) wrote in and asked me to pimp their campaign a bit, so there ya go. :)

That’s it folks! Have an awesome day!

Spacey Game News and Deals 5/1/13: Mayday! Mayday! We’re Making an Enewsency Landing! ;)

Lookit! New Newsiness Graphic!

Lookit! New Newsiness Graphic!

Hey folks, happy hump day and May Day as well!! I hope y’all are having a lovely week so far. I know I am. Got some more time with StarDrive as well as Strike Suit Infinity yesterday, and had a good time with each. The next StarDrive installment will be ready soon (sans screenshots since Fraps decided to stop taking them, dangit) and I hope to have a look at Infinity some time late this week or early next (spoiler: I might like it more than Strike Suit Zero, not 100% yet). ;) Now, with that said, let’s dive into some news!

  • Star Citizen – Gamasutra has an article entitled “Crowdfunding, One Year Later” which talks to Chris Roberts and others about their crowdfunding campaign, and it’s a great read. The official game site has a look at the sexy new spacesuit as well, and details the various models. Finally, there’s a new essay called “Will We Never Learn?” that adds some flavor to the game.
  • Freespace Open – The latest Hard-Light Productions newsletter has been published with the latest campaign, coding and modding news, and more.
  • EVE Online – Lots of articles from The Mittani, including their review of FanFest 2013, a look at the derp frigate, the N3 coalition saying EVE is dead and a story on making Nullsec safer (as if that’s a good idea). Gotta love all the content they pound out. Polygon also has a story about how intial funding for the game was provided by a boardgame, which happens to feature the current mayor of Reykjavík. Finally, Giant Bomb has a fan-made trailer which is fun to watch. Sadly I can’t embed the video.
  • StarDrive – RTS Guru has posted their review of the game.
  • ScrumbleShip – The game now has tree ships. No, I’m not kidding, and it looks awesome.
  • Star Trek Online – The official dev blog has an entry on designing Romulan uniforms. My favorite site on the web, Fashion it So (if you’ve not read this site, you NEED to) has some words on the matter.
  • X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter – According to Shamus Young over on The Escapist, he feels that X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter is one of a small lineup of LucasArts games that deserve another shot at a new life by Disney. He’s totally wrong, by the way, and the only way he’d be more wrong is if he said X-Wing Alliance. ;)

Finally, in deals, there’s a new bundle over on BundleStars that includes Galcon-esque game Planets Under Attack and a bunch of other games for $5.09 currently, which I might snag since I’ve not yet had a chance to try it.

That’s it for this one folks. Have an awesome day!
