Hey friends, happy Podcast day! I am super excited to talk to the developer of Remnants of the Precursors tonight. My time with the game shows it being a true Master of Orion successor, and I totally hope to talk about why more folks try to copy Master of Orion 2 over the first game (which I kinda feel is the better game at this point). Aaannnywhooo, let’s talk todays videos. First up, I actually yell at Endless Space 2 today, because god damned pirates. Fuck. Pirates. I was having fun, doing what one does in a 4X, and then these pirates just come and keep biting at me like the pests they are. I got so fed up I began a new game after this entry, because I didn’t wanna play angry, and I didn’t think you’d wanna watch that.
Today’s video of SuperCluster: Void is a happier affair, of course. After being turned down assistance by one race, I meet another who is initially resistant as well…unlessssss I grease their wheels a bit, if you know what I mean. This leads to a lot of mining and looting to get the necessary gold…er…grease needed to get them on our side, but eventually I do, and I get to upgrade my ship a bit along the way. I tell y’all, this game is REALLY scratching that Starflight itch.
Last night I got to play no games, sadly, because what should’ve been a routine laundry night turned into anything but due to several machines being out of order, and some not working well at all. So that took up much of my night. I doubt I’ll get any gaming tonight in besides the podcast either, which is fine, I’ll be making up for it this weekend. ;)
Now, onto news!
- Starpoint Gemini Warlords left early access today! Yay!
- The HCS Voice Packs folks are working on some kind of Elite Dangerous narrated fiction!
- Valve hired some folks behind Kerbal Space Program, and we’ve no idea why yet.
- Jumpgate will be holding a Recitation of Heroes ceremony on the 26th. I’ll try to attend if I can.
- InvokeRetroGaming has some fun videos about retro space games y’all should watch.
That’s it on the news. The only deal of the day is this Bundle Stars bundle which includes Navpoint.
That’s it for today folks (told ya it was a teensy update)! See y’all on the podcast tonight, and thanks for reading!
