You can now fast-forward through slow Code Name S.T.E.A.M. turns


27 blocks of heaven

Intelligent Systems has addressed one of the biggest complaints about its turn-based strategy title Code Name S.T.E.A.M. with a time-saving update available now on the 3DS eShop.

Now that there's a fast-forward button to speed up alien movement, waiting for them to sluggishly get through their turns will be much less of a chore. So no more doing the dishes while you wait.

As someone who inevitably turns off the battle animations in games like Advance Wars and Fire Emblem, lavish as they are, this update is a godsend. S.T.E.A.M. is back on my to-buy list.
