Arc Savior is on sale for $7.50
Keen Software House is releasing a new update to Space Engineers that enhances the economy. KSH is also offering a cosmetic DLC now as well to go along with this update.
This is free to play this weekend on Steam (8/23 – 8/25), so give it a try and if you like it give it a buy its currently on sale:
Game is coming out in Jan 2020, don’t get too excited yet its a EGS exclusive 🙁
Wow its impressive to see Hello Games releasing 7 patches fixing issues since the release of Beyond expansion, amazing support there (thumbs up).
I hope they don’t rush it, but you would think if SPG3 was going to release this year that the media campaign would be starting up and we would see more videos and info about the game. Maybe they are checking out Rebel Galaxy Outlaw to see how that is doing and plays and watching reviews on it 😉 Because I would say that would be their direct competition.
Nice little interview I came across, its quick but gives you some context
Does it support flightstick and throttle at all CaptianKal? I am sure you had to spend a few hours mapping all the controls …
But I do see why more and more devs not supporting the flightstick any more, it is really a hardcore gamer control and the audience for it is getting smaller and smaller because of consoles and the technology behind the controllers. I will admit it has been years since I used my flightstick, I have the controller sitting right here and it gets the job done. But the flightstick does give you a lot better immersion feel that I miss in most games.
We will see what the next few months bring.
Yeah but when they nail down all the bugs NMS will be so much better running on Vulcan. Because overall it handles CPU/GPU operations more efficiently than OpenGL and DirectX. But tip of the hat to Hello Games for putting in the effort to integrate it.
I think I will be finally picking this up at Xmas, because everything should be stable by then. But it is looking good, I hope they have more space action in the game because that is rarely shown in all of the videos I have seen most of all them concentrate on planet side functions.
Yeah the devs said it would be best played with a gamepad, probably because it was also being designed for console at the same time. I am not a developer so I don’t know the difficulties of implementing control schemes and supporting them and balancing them across multiple platforms. But I would have expected decent mouse/keyboard support. But I have a gamepad too because some games do play well with them and when I do finally play outlaw I will try both methods to see which one I like best.
But hopefully modding will be really supported by the devs and this game game and its content can really grow over time. And maybe if there is enough feedback that the devs might focus a patch on PC controls.
Steam is giving away Space Pilgrim Ep 1 for free for a short time, so check it out and post if you like or dislike the game…
Maybe I will try playing this after I finish Galaxy on Fire 2, I read a lot of the comments that people are using the WESP patches with the game so I don’t think they integrated them. But when I do play this I will post about it all and how to get it playing as perfect as you can get it on Win10.
The effects look really good in this game, especially for from a top down view. I haven’t bought basically any top-down space games in a very long time I have been waiting on Starsector to complete because I think that game is a complete game (http://fractalsoftworks.com/). What this game has going for it is the fact it looks well done and the price is reasonable and if there is modding and the developer continues to update it for a while it could have a shot 🙂
Here is a nice review for Rebel Galaxy Outlaw
I have Precursors on Steam just haven’t got around to playing it yet, I need to do this soon before mods and patches are unavailable 🙂 I heard the steam version upped the resolution level of the game.
