So....this game ASTRONEER....is in pre-ALPHA.

All I have to say is that the pre-ALPHA for ASTRONEER is worlds better than most BETA's and even many full-release games I've played lately!

 

Think 'space-engineers' married to 'minecraft' wrapped up in the art style of 'no man's lie'.

On STEAM the almost 12 thousand reviews are 90% positive, and that's for a pre-ALPHA.

As the end of the election is upon us, I thought it would be fun to take a look and see how the current statistics of player data were going in The Political Machine 2016. We have ‘Exit Polls,’ which consist of data that we collect from the game on things such as what candidates people are playing as, what party is winning in games, what issues are deciding the wins, and more.

You can see all the data here.

So lets take a look and see where we’re at with this data at the ...

PC Gamer has an article up about 4x games and takes a look at the "major players" in the genre. Great to see Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion, Elemental: Fallen Enchantress, and Galactic Civilizations III on that list!

Stardock will be doing Let's Plays on its latest games starting at 2pm with Brad Wardell (designer of Galactic Civilizations and Ashes of the Singularity) playing Sorcerer King: Rivals and Ashes of the Singularity in the afternoon.

Subscribe to: https://www.twitch.tv/stardock

2pm: Sorcerer King: Rivals

4pm: Ashes of the Singularity Multiplayer

Feel free to hop in and ask any questions. Brad is the CEO of Stardock.
Some people say that the dream job is to play video games, write about those games, take videos of them, etc. That job does exist and Stardock is looking to hire someone to do it.

The job is called Content Developer.

What does this job entail? Basically, playing our games and helping us get the word out to people what we’re doing via video, articles, screenshots, etc.

Here’s an example using our friends at Firaxis as an example: http://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/civ-vi-spa...
If you don’t already have Offworld Trading Company and would like an RTS that focuses on economy, plays at the pace you want to play and has really intelligent AI players that you can configure you should definitely go grab Offworld Trading Company.



 

The first major DLC was just released for it, The Ceres initiative.  The base game takes place on Mars.  By contrast, Ceres takes you to the largest asteroid in the Mars/Jupiter asteroid belt and adds new resources an...

I don't know if many people here have played or play RUST, but I've been really into it for few weeks and wanted to track my experiences and discuss with folks if anyone is interested.  Feel free to chime in if you like.  I'm currently playing on a very small server, but quite active (search justagame in the server browser).  IGN pacov.  I don't currently plan on streaming but might do so for raids.  

For folks that played Rust some time back, they rec...
