Welcome to another week of spacey gaming my friends! This week, for the game of the week, I dive, dive, dive into the fantastic, challenging and extensive mod/total conversion for Freespace 2 called Between the Ashes, which takes place between the first game and its expansion pack, Silent Threat. I also spent some time with the surprisingly fantastic NEXT JUMP: Shmup Tactics, a turn-based tactical shmup that mixes FTL-style sector jumping with turn-based shooting and dodging, and it’s so great.
On this week’s LAN Party Thursdays (Thursday, 5:30 PM Pacific, Twitch, YouTube, Beam, Hitbox), we’ll be returning to the finest Gungan and Ewok murder simulator in all the land, Star Wars: Battlefront II with the amazing Ultimate Pack mod. If you’d like to join us, download the mod and hit us up on Evolve!
Finally, if you missed it, this past Sunday’s jaunt into Discovery Freelancer was a stone-cold blast. Seriously, so fun. This mod is definitely better than Elite. ;)
Thanks y’all, and have a great week!
