Review: X4: Foundations

The X series has a storied history of being the top in the space trading and combat simulation genre. It has also been one of the harder series to get into with previous iterations offering little to no introduction. With X4: Foundations, i...

Review: Star Control: Origins

It’s hard to talk about Star Control: Origins without talking about Star Control 2. SC2 is a game extremely near and dear to me. I originally played it on the Panasonic 3DO, that system nobody owned that cost an arm and a leg, where i...

Weekly content and events lined up for No Man's Sky

I stopped playing No Man's Sky due to boredom, which is never how I want to end a video game. I felt engaged in the early hours just scouting out new planets, but eventually, I ran out of meaningful things to do. Then I kept pushing anyway....

Star Trek: Bridge Crew no longer requires VR

With today's PC and PS4 update, Ubisoft's social space sim Star Trek: Bridge Crew no longer requires players to use a virtual-reality headset. If you've been trying to talk your friends into playing (or vice versa), that conversation should...

Checking out the battle system of Star Control: Origins

I have a heavy bias toward Star Control. It is one of the first PC games I ever fell in love with alongside MYST, though my original introduction to the series took place on the Sega Genesis. The original Star Control is likely not worth go...

Why Elite Dangerous is my nightly holiday

The other day I spent a couple of hours at work reading about sailboats. Like a ten-year-old with a new fascination after discovering Treasure Island or some other seafaring fantasy, I was obsessing over famous ships from the past, and the ...

New Star Control screenshots and Founders Program

Star Control II is one of the best games ever made. Getting that out of the way, I was pretty happy when Stardock announced last year that they would be reviving the series. The original creators Paul Reiche and Fred Ford will not be d...

No Man's Sky is back this week with another major update

No Man's Sky is mostly a distant memory for me at this point, but with an ARG brewing and people getting jazzed about uncovering its secrets, the sci-fi exploration game has been back on my mind. We've known about a possible August launch f...

What's up with No Man's Sky and these mysterious packages?

Hello Games has been sending packages to the Reddit moderators for the No Man's Sky page. They include cassettes (like CDs, but even older!) numbered "x/16" and a bunch of No Man's Sky swag -- pins, socks, and a signed poster that reads "ho...

Kerbal Space Program finds a new home at Take-Two

Kerbal Space Program is now a part of Take-Two Interactive, which is one of those sentences I never envisioned writing. The popular space-exploration sim will still be supported by Squad, and the acquisition doesn't change the team's plans ...

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...

Review: Endless Space 2

It's 5AM, and my empire is crumbling. The clock ceased to be a concern quite a while ago. My heavy investment in scientific pursuits over militarism means that although we have better tech than the competition, we're not nearly as good at g...

Starbound is getting a new update that will allow for player created space stations. Using a snap module, players will be able to pick from a selection of different options to craft their very own home away from home. You'll start the proce...

Kerbal Space Program's first expansion has a mission editor

More Kerbal Space Program is on the way with an expansion called Making History. The goal is to "enrich the Kerbal experience" beyond what's already available in the base game and mods, says Squad, and that'll manifest with a drag-and-drop ...

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...

DayZ creator's multiplayer space sim Ion isn't happening

This is the second and seemingly final time I'll cover Ion, the space simulation multiplayer game DayZ creator Dean Hall announced as part of Microsoft's E3 2015 press conference. It's a game we never knew many concrete details about and on...

A Fallout 76 player put over 900 hours into the game, reaching level 450, and legitimately playing a game he obviously loves gets banned by Bethesda for literally having too much No matter which game, banned for playing fairly is fucking
