On a whim, Red Thomas takes a look at the "MMO" space strategy game, Starborne. Red regales readers with his operatic tale of space adventure and gives a little insight into who might find the game interesting and who should probably avoid it.
With the release of the July War Table, I think I've finally crossed into highly anticipated territory with Marvel's Avengers. The game looks well-polished at this point and the team's willingness to show a good deal of gameplay (and allow players to play through a solid chunk of content in the beta) inspire confidence in me that Crystal Dynamics may have something solid on their hands.
Yesterday, Microsoft gave us a look at some of the games coming to the Xbox Series X in a live streamed showcase event. I don't particularly care about the Series X as someone who games on PC announcements are still relevant to me. Despite a lack of gameplay in some key reveals, the showcase generally impressed me. These are some of the highlights.
Finnish indie group Bugbyte released Space Haven in May. Red Thomas finally has time to check the game out and regrets only that it took him so long. Red walks readers through some of what he liked so much about the title and who should consider picking the game up.
Cloud gaming has been a hot button topic for Steven in recent weeks, so naturally as he plays his MMOs, seeing how well they stream via the cloud is something he was going to research. This time, it's Guild Wars 2!
We already know the ships Star Wars: Squadrons will feature at launch and with no (current) plans for DLC the notion of getting any additional ships post-launch is really just a hope at this point. But that's OK. Speculation is fun! If EA does ever decide to add more ships, these are some of the ships I'd like to see.
Red Thomas gives his read on the Take-Two situation regarding the development of Kerbal Space Program 2 as reported by Bloomberg in June. Bloomberg's reporter likely got a few things wrong and Red levies his experience as a business owner and having been subcontracted on a number of occasions to provide some perspective.
