Spacey Game News and Deals 6/7/13: Finally-It’s-The-F#$%ing-Weekend Edition
Hellooooooooooo my friends, and happy Friday! I hope y’all had a lovely week as well as fantastic weekend ahead. I sadly won’t be able to get in anywhere near as much gaming as I’d like this weekend, and I’m totally feeling the pangs of withdrawal, but hopefully I’ll get enough in to calm my frayed nerves. Okay, they’re not really frayed, but lawdy lawd what a week it’s been. Anyway, enough rambling, onto the news!
- Void Destroyer – There have been three new updates since my news post yesterday. Backing the game now adds your name to a random ship name generator, which is cool. :)
- Star Citizen – There’s a new post detailing a fan fiction roundup an an interview with Chris Roberts (video embedded below) as well as new entry to the writer’s guide.
- Star Trek Online – There’s a new blog post focusing on the Romulan D’Deridex and D’ridthau cruisers. I do so love Romulan ship design.
- EVE Online – On the official site, you can see the features and prizes for the upcoming Alliance Tournament XI. On The Mittani, their alliance, the CFC, is invading Fountain and several other systems. We’ll keep you apprised as events occur.
- Elite: Dangerous – The latest version of their newsletter has been released. Thanks for the tip Wild Bill!
- Starsector – A rare new post on the site, this time talking about fighters.
We also have some deals!!
- First, the big one. The latest Indie Royale bundle has ALL of the AI War games, including the upcoming Vengeance of the Machine expansion — which goes into open beta today — for a minimum of $5.49 at this point, which is AMAZING. Even better, if you pay $8 or more, you get the soundtracks to ALL of the included games. This is a STEAL people, so if you don’t own these games, jump on it now!
- Then, over on Green Man Gaming, you can get Strike Suit Zero for $6.79 and Strike Suit Infinity for $3.49.
Then, in related news. the Roberts Space Industries site has a look back at Strike Commander, which I’ll embed below. Finally, at Matrix Games’ upcoming Historicon event in July, they’ve announced that Buzz Aldrin will be on hand to talk about his career as well as their upcoming game, Buzz Aldrin’s Space Program Manager. The bigger news is that I’M GOING TO BE THERE! YAY! ;)
That’s it folks. Have a wonderful weekend!
