Edge of Space trailer shows rocket shark, tanooki-squid

If there are two things I love, they are Terraria, and outer space. So naturally, I have been waiting impatiently for every bit of news about Starbound. However, it seems that Handyman Studios may be beating Chucklefish to the punch with their Steam Greenlight title, Edge of Space.

The trailer above shows off a few things that Terraria fans should already be familiar with, including exploration, building, and combat against wacky creatures. Some additions to the formula include pets, mechs, and of course, different worlds with distinct biomes.

To be honest, something about the art style doesn't sit quite right with me. It may be that the styles for the foreground and the background are too dissimilar, or it may be that the character sprites seem too large. Regardless, I'm still interested to check this out.

Edge of Space is currently in beta, and can be pre-purchased now on Desura for access to the beta, at a discounted price of $9.99. If you'd like to see it on Steam, you can vote for it on its Greenlight page.

This Splatoon 60fps trailer is just hnnngh

Splatoon came out of nowhere, and it shot into my most anticipated list of 2015. As an unconventional shooter it looks pretty great, and the constant morphing from human to squid looks like it has a lot of value on a tactical level. Although this trailer isn't new, Nintendo has uploaded another version of it that runs at 60fps, so give it a go!more

Far Cry 4's alternate ending only takes a half hour to access

Alternate endings are a fascinating way to put a non-canonical spin on the tales that we know and love. Sometimes it's a silly and light-hearted Pentagon piefight. Others are grim, like Dante taking a bullet to the chest on ...more
