Sword of the Stars 2 big on stars, short on swords


1:00 AM on 07.09.2010



Seriously, I didn't see one sword in the entirety of this teaser. The game is called Sword of the Stars 2 and while I hadn't played the first one, I'm getting the distinct impression that there weren't any swords the first go around.

There are a lot of stars, though. Quite a few ships also, which I guess could be expected from a space-themed empire builder. There are also a bunch of very pretty words which seem to amount to nothing when an inky blackness comes rolling in for a visit and the screaming starts.

Just be aware that you won't see any swords here. Wouldn't want anybody to have their expectations shattered.

Invisible, Inc.'s tactical espionage action hits Early Access August 19

Invisible, Inc. is going to be one of my obsessions this year. Enough that I am actually going to play a game while it's in Steam Early Access (PC, Mac) rather than waiting for the hard launch. Plus, it will be priced at $16 while in Early Access before bumping up to $20 at launch.more
