The Elite IV piece reminded me that the latest version of Evochron Legends just came out. Not many changes in this version, but I thought it was worth mentioning because this is a game that actually includes a lot of the stuff people mention when they ask for a new Elite game, including the capacity for multiplayer in a freeform universe - a feature that we don't often get to see in action. Anyway, the full-game installer acts as a demo so you can check it out.
Man, I fancy a big old RPS game of this. Let's get our Warband explorations up to a gallop first, though, eh? Sign thee up.
