Space sim Starpoint Gemini 2 free to own on Steam

I don't know about you, but I like starting the week off with a free game that I in all likelihood will never get around to playing, much less downloading. This week, that game is the tactical space simulator Starpoint Gemini 2. It's free t...

Today's update for No Man's Sky is a doozy

Just yesterday I said I'd consider getting back into No Man's Sky with the next update (once I unearth myself from Q1 2017's avalanche of amazing games), and what an update it is. This introductory video mostly focuses on the new land-base...

Astroneer is a minimalist No Man's Sky

I first played Astroneer at PAX West earlier this year, and it caught my attention immediately. It's near impossible to describe without mentioning No Man's Sky (NMS), as they're both procedurally generated games that revolve arou...

What's the sickest alien you've seen in No Man's Sky?

No Man's Sky features a full universe with infinity +1 planets, most of which seem to be hospitable to some kind of plant and wildlife. A lot of times these creatures look the same, a randomly generated amalgamation of limbs and swim bladde...
